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….
