This book was introduced to me as "a mix of 'Station Eleven' and 'The Hunger Games'..." ; and while the writing is not nearly as sophisticated as that in 'Station Eleven' (my absolute 100% FAVOURITE novel of the past 5 years - PLEASE GO READ IT!!!!), I found Wolves of Winter to be an entirely engaging and fun read. Yes, there's a fairly predictable story arc, but you kind of know what you're getting into reading this genre of book, no? Also don't forget to go read Station Eleven. You'll thank me for it later.
