The book starts out with a girl named Elka, who is found by a Trapper, when she was seven years old. She has been completely swept up and completely left at the mercy of his hut. He decided that she would be useful. He decides to teach her how to live off of the land. Which is pretty big of him. I enjoyed this part of the story more than I thought I would.
She is such a fun character because she really doesn't enjoy being
I honestly found this book to be a compelling and easy to read. I feel like the story is face-paced. The strong female lead is exciting. I found the story of trauma and ultimate survival to be beyond gripping. If you are looking for a girl power lead story this is something you will really enjoy.
"Way I reckon it, men killed more wolves than wolves ever killed men. I know who I’m more afraid of.”
I really enjoyed this book. I received this book for blogging for books, although I couldn't wait for it to be delivered before reading so I bought the ebook and finished it in two days. I really think most people will love this book.
A debut literary thriller from an incredible new voice. What do you do when the man who gave you everything turns out to be a killer?
Everything Elka knows of the world she learned from the man she calls Trapper, the solitary hunter who took her under his wing when she was just seven years old.
But when Elka sees the Wanted poster in town, her simple existence is shattered. Her Trapper – Kreagar Hallet – is wanted for murder. Even worse, Magistrate Lyon is hot on his trail, and she wants to talk to Elka.
Elka flees into the vast wilderness, determined to find her true parents. But Lyon is never far behind – and she’s not the only one following Elka’s every move. There will be a reckoning, one that will push friendships to the limit and force Elka to confront the dark memories of her past.
