When I first read this, I was taken aback by the language–but that is because I had been on a Young Adult binge. Chey thinks she is safe now but this feeling is short-lived when she hears the men talking. While I still prefer the horror way, I accepted the magical way in this book. I found the writing a little repetitive at times and the author’s apparent affinity for the word ‘though’ was very distracting.
The Arctic, whilst beautiful, is just as deadly, and we get to see the hell Chey has to endure. Open Preview See a Problem? I don’t think I’d call it that, it was a thriller, edge of welpington seat thriller with some blood, crunched bones and big teeth. This is a good one and this author gets it right. But is it wrong to kill to eat, to survive? The setting is similar to the real world, but where rrostbite and possibly other supernatural phenomena are rare but known phenomena.

They are two halves of a whole, the wolf hating humanity with its very core. You dont have to only I love Wellington. They have elements of the dire wolfincluding unusually wicked teeth. I actually discovered Frostbite: While Wellington has stated that the world is not the same as that of his Monster Trilogy or Thirteen Bulletsthere is at least some connection in the form of the recurring character Bannerman Clarkewho was a main character but presumably killed in Monster Nation.
Occasionally he would lick her face, her ears, to wake her up, to keep her from fading out of existence altogether. Please don’t read it. By about two-thirds of the way through, I was done reading all the back-story and I ended up just skimming anything that wasn’t action or dialogue.
After a failed attempt to kill Powell, Chey is left in the care of her backers, and used as bait to lure Powell while her own future at their hands remains questionable. He ripped open her guts and they spilled with a rank smell across the broken road surface. Chey and Powell both have interesting backgrounds and as Chey’s story unfolds, everything builds to a very exciting climax and an ending that was satisfying and had me wanting to read book two.

There wasn’t anything here that made me say, “Oh wow! Refresh and try again. So very good indeed! These lycanthropes davdi not slavering monsters but rather very large wolves, dire wolves.

Cheyenne is just not a character I can get excited about. Throw in the duality of the human versus the wolf in each shapeshifters core, where the Human fears the Wolf, and the Wolf hates and hungers for the flesh of the Human, and the story gets deeper still.

I wanted to, but I didn’t. However, I did have one issue.
Not your typical lycanthropy tale. What of the monstrosity Powell was building of human skin and the possibility that her father was a part wellinghon this mechanism?

If you do see Powell, will you give him a message for me? The idea of coming to forgiveness and redemption and how we cannot entirely let things go is a strong current through the sequel as is the breathless, fast-paced action and the incorporation of mythology and Native American representations of animal spirts.
Chey is soon attacked by a werewolf it is indicated to the reader that the creature is obviously not a normal wolfbut survives with only a scratch, which is enough to curse her with lycanthropy.
