Waiting on Wednesday #17 - The Wolf Road

 Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My Waiting on Wednesday pick is:

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
Publisher: Crown
Publication Date: July 5, 2016

True Grit meets The Road in this postapocalyptic psychological thriller--narrated by a young girl who has just learned that her adopted father may be a serial killer, and that she may be his next victim.

In the remote wilds of a ravaged land, Elka has been raised by a man who isn't her father. Since finding her wandering in the woods when she was seven, he has taught her how to hunt, shoot, set snares and start fires--everything she needs to survive. All she knows of the world outside is gleaned from whispers of a cataclysmic event that turned the clock back on civilization by a hundred and fifty years and reduced governments and technology to shambles, leaving men at the mercy of the elements--and each other.

Everything changes when Elka learns that the man she has been calling father is harboring a terrible secret. Armed with nothing but her knife and her wiles, she decides to escape his clutches and sets out on a long journey to the frozen north in the hope of finding her long-lost parents.

But as the trail of blood and bodies grows in her path, Elka realizes that daddy won't be letting his little girl go without a fight. If she's going to survive, she'll have to turn and confront not just him, but the truth about what he's turned her into.


Pre-Order:  Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | BAM!

Why Am I Waiting?
I love this kind of book.  The early reviews on Goodreads look pretty good so I think this book may turn out to be a pretty good bet.  When I saw this one on First to Read, I just had to have it.  I have my fingers crossed that it will be as good as I hope it will be.

What are you waiting for this week? 


  1. This sounds intense! I'll have to check it out. Enjoy!

  2. Looks good! I used to love this kind of book but quit reading them a few years ago. I've been reaching towards darker and darker books lately and this one looks great. I'll definitely have to add it to my TBR!

  3. I'm always interested in serial killer books. I hope this one is a great read for you!

  4. That sounds amazing!!!! *shivers* I like a good psychological thriller and I'm a sucker for dystopians. Not sure I've ever read a book that combines the two as this one promises. Thanks for sharing, adding to my TBR now :)
