Summary of the Book:

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. 

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The will for survival on a planet that is nothing but ice and everything is out to get you. The only way off is a race that claimed the lives of the ones she loves. It is her will to be free, the bond with a wolf, and found family that pushes her each and every step. There are of course doubts along the way and facing fears. I assumed this book would be one thing and it showed me it was many things. It is a wonderful debut book and it kept me wanting to be part of the adventure. The description of the world was max-level incredible.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars.
