    One of my favorite sub-genres of dystopian novels is when society breaks down due to some kind of tragedy, and then a band of survivors figures out how to keep going and rebuild. (See also: Stephen King's "The Stand," Emily St. John Mandel's "Station Eleven," and Jose Saramago's "Blind...

    "The Wolves of Winter" is a wonderful post-apocalyptic take by debut author Tyrell Johnson and one that definitely lands him on my radar. Lynn and her family live in the Canadian Yukon following the collapse of civilization after a brutal war brimming with chemical warfare and numerous...

    In his debut novel, Tyrell Johnson storms onto the scene with this curious post-apocalyptic piece that pits a rural family against the Establishment. Lynn is a 23 year-old who has seen much in her life. The Wars turned America into a nuclear war zone and forced her family to flee to Al...

    An immensely appealing adventure story, set in the post-apocalyptic future after nuclear war and biological warfare in the form of Asiatic flu has decimated the World. The Wolves of Winter reminded me of an old-fashioned Western with its epic gunfights, clear good guys and bad guys...

    4 solid stars and I might be tempted to go 4.5. A debut book. Excellent start. A dystopian novel in which the US goes to war with Asia (seems plausible) and the war slowly faded after a deadly flu outbreak ( hmm, again plausible). The McBride family was living in Chicago, moved to A...

    In brief - Simple really - just a plain damn good read. Lynn is an excellent character, the setting is very good indeed and the story is well told. I really would love to read another by this author. 4.5/5 but let's not be picky - I'll call it 5. This is Lynn's story. She is current...

    I love any dystopian story. But this one felt plausible to me. Maybe because it?s been -20C for more than a week here, the snow crunching beneath my boots. I loved every part of this book. The characters are vibrant, real, lovable. Many thanks to the publisher for providing my co...

    So I guess this is marketed as post-apocalyptic adult fiction, but honestly, this book is so YA it couldn't BE more YA. (There's a couple graphic scenes I guess, but still - everything else? totally YA.) Not that there's anything wrong with YA (I LIKE that genre), but you know - it's s...

    In a post flu epidemic world, Lynn and her family live off the land in the Canadian Yukon. I enjoyed the all of the characters. They each brought something different to the table to help their family survive. Lynn is a strong protagonist and, although, the story line was a little predi...

    THE WOLVES OF WINTER by Teryll Johnson - Thank you so much to Scribner for providing my free copy - all opinions are my own. I am a BIG fan of post apocalyptic reads and this fits the bill! Lynn and her family survive after nuclear war and the plague of disease. They cross the bord...

    This post apocalyptic fiction has a definite YA vibe but offers more than enough to keep a reader of any age entertained. It follows the story of Lynn McBride, living in the wilderness of the Yukon with her family, isolated and wary after war and disease brought the world to its knees ...

    Tyrell Johnson?s The Wolves of Winter starts out as a reasonably well-written, if undistinguished, post-apocalyptic tale ? a sort of YA-ish version of Cormac Mcarthy?s The Road (the ?ish? owing to the fact that the protagonist, Lynn, is a handful of years older than the usual...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. The Wolves of Winter, Tyrell Johnson?s debut novel, is a post-apocalyptic novel that strives to bring life to the shivering, freezing climate in the snow-covered Yukon. It embraces its end of the world scenario with open arms and...

    This novel has a little bit of everything I love mixed into it - a post-apocalyptic/dystopian society with elements of mystery and coming of age of protagonist, Lynn. The setting is the wilderness of remote Canada. The pacing was excellent and the writing was smooth and easy to follow....

    Not sure if this is YA or not but whatever genre you place it in, The Wolves of Winter by Tyrell Johnson is just a rip-roaring fun yarn. I absolutely loved the setup and backstory for this one. A flu pandemic that swept the globe amidst war and brought about a snowy apocalypse seems...

    I?m always on the lookout for a new and exciting book in the post-apocalyptic genre. The Wolves of Winter jumped out at me; the cover screamed Nordic noir, another favorite genre, while the synopsis is all post-apocalyptic. I was ready to saddle up and head north with Tyrell Johnson....
