#BookReview: Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves by Meg Long






Synopsis: After angering a local gangster, seventeen-year-old Sena Korhosen must flee with her prize fighting wolf, Iska, in tow. A team of scientists offer to pay her way off her frozen planet on one condition: she gets them to the finish line of the planet’s infamous sled race. Though Sena always swore she’d never race after it claimed both her mothers’ lives, it’s now her only option. 

But the tundra is a treacherous place, and as the race unfolds and their lives are threatened at every turn, Sena starts to question her own abilities. She must discover whether she's strong enough to survive the wild – whether she and Iska together are strong enough to get them all out alive.

A captivating debut about survival, found family, and the bond between a girl and a wolf that delivers a fresh twist on classic survival stories and frontier myths.

This title released on January 11, 2022.

My Review: The world building in this one was the gem of the story.  I loved learning more about it and I hope we get another book set in this world. The characters come second in this one but are just so amazing as well.  I loved everyone and everything. The second half of the story did lose me for a little but by the end I was fully invested.
