When the Winter arrives, the Wolves will come down over the walls and eat little boys in their beds.

Doctor Nicholas Blake might still be afraid of the dark, but the monsters his grandmother tormented him with as a child aren’t real.

Or so he thought… until the sea freezes, the country grinds to a halt under the snow, and he finds a half-dead man bleeding out while a dead woman watches. Now his nightmares impinge on his waking life, and the only one who knows what’s going on is his unexpected patient.

For Gregor it’s simple. The treacherous prophets mutilated him and stole his brother Jack, and he’s going to kill them for it. Without his wolf, it might be difficult, but he’ll be damned if anyone else gets to kill Jack—even if he has to enlist the help of his distractingly attractive, but very human, doctor.

Except maybe the prophets want something worse than death, and maybe Nick is less human than Gregor believes. As the dead gather and the old stories come true, the two men will need each other if they’re going to rescue Jack and stop the prophets’ plan to loose something more terrible than the wolf winter.

TA Moore has pulled no punches in Dog Winter, setting us up with many questions unanswered in the first book. As we enter the second book we are thrown again into the brutal cold and suffering of the humans. The Prophets have done despicable acts and tortured and taken Jack’s skin and now Gregor’s wolf . Danny has been kidnapped with Jack and Gregor is found in the snow, left to die.

Gregor is found by Doctor Nicholas Blake, a doctor that works with the dead, not the living. So he has to work hard bringing this frozen dying man back to health. Gregor was not particularly a favorite of mine in the first book, but now I rally with him to find his brother  Jack and Jack’s dog Danny. Like  with Danny we quickly see Nick is not what he seems , as he and Gregor make a deal in finding Jack and Danny.

This story has many more stories to it, and you have to pay attention to how the humans are manipulated, what you see might not be real except Gregor’s Wolfie “Mine” moment when it comes to  his feelings for Nick. Never thought I’d see the spoiled wolf/ man fall for anyone but his spoiled self.

Nick’s remembrances of his childhood become memories that are brought to the forefront of this story, as they fight the enemy in brutal bloody fights, in brutal unforgiving weather. Perseverance is the word. The enemy was a surprise!

All in all this book gives us the set up for the upcoming finale in Book #3 coming possibly soon….
