Overwinter (Cheyenne Clark, #2) by David Wellington
David Wellington spins an amazing werewolf tale full of deceit, action, and horror, as the hunter ds the hunted. I was on the edge of my seat flipping pages like a madwoman. The plot is full of unexpected twists and surprises. I highly recommend this book to fans of werewolf horror, cause this is not a shifter romance. View all 12 comments. I long for a good werewolf book. They come out rarely, and good ones rarer still. This is a good one and this author gets it right. It’s not about the rampaging beast, but about the curse.
It is about the curse, what it does to families, to people and to the fabric of morality.
It is wrong to kill, right? But is it wrong to kill to eat, to survive? When you are THE apex predator, then you kill as you wish. Throw in the duality of the human versus the wolf in each shapeshifters core, where the Hu I long for a good werewolf book. Throw in the duality of the human versus the wolf in each shapeshifters core, where the Human fears the Wolf, and the Wolf hates and hungers for the flesh of the Human, and the story gets deeper still.
The is a second book in this duology and I cannot wait to delve into its depths. I highly recommend this book. So very good indeed! Me ha gustado, sobre todo, como los convertidos se debaten entre su personalidad humana y la animal, para conseguir convivir con ambas formas.
This is horror, not Young Adult. When I first read this, I was taken aback by the language–but that is because I had been on a Young Adult binge. It was realistic and gritty; the story’s ending left it open for a sequel.
The reason I gave it four stars was there is a character that is never fully explained, and I am still scratching my head wondering what he was–if you read the book you will know who I am This is horror, not Young Adult.

Wellington creates a compelling, taut, page-turner set in the Arctic wilderness of Canada, starring another solid female lead who he puts through her paces and then somemixing in his trademark gripping action and pacing, then adding new seasonings to the werewolf mythos. There was closure at the end of the novel yet I see that this is the beginning of a series for the author. I can see where the novel might be headed in the future though and I might pick up the rest of the series next month.
The novel begins with Chey out in the forest, making her way through the dense trees, when a flash flood comes barreling her way. She loses most of her belongings as the water tumbles her about. As she gets her bearings, she finds herself staring at multiple sets of glowing eyes behind the trees. Climbing a nearby tree for safety, she realizes that she is surrounded by wolves and begins to wonder what her next step will be.
A howl rings through the trees, wellihgton chilling and unique howl, which sends the wolves running. As she watches the scene unfold, Chey sees another animal circling her tree.
With white fangs, the silver and black animal gazes up at her before he begins to reach for her. Later, as Chey climbs down from the tree, she smells hope. Slowly making her way towards the smell, Chey comes upon Dzo cooking over a fire. Located in an isolated part of Canadian wilderness, these two men are comfortably living dw lives with a shared secret. Chey thinks she is safe now but this feeling is short-lived when she hears the men talking.
I loved how the novel all came together and I enjoyed the little twists that the author revealed slowly as the story intensified. They had each thought that their lives were difficult but now as they meet each other, it is only going to get more complicated. The Canadian wilderness is entering turbulent territory. I’ve now read at least the 1st book from 3 different David Wellington series. Of the zombies, vampires and werewolf series this has the most interesting character, but is not quite the best story – that would be the vampire series.
However, this book is a wellinvton interesting take on the werewolf series where the wolf changes so long as there is moonlight, and werewolves are a known part of human society throughout the ages.
The main character, Cheyenne Clark, is one of the most interesting characte I’ve now read at least the 1st book from 3 different David Wellington series. The main character, Cheyenne Clark, is one of the most interesting characters in Wellington’s novels, but the unfortunately, the novel doesn’t have much of a in depth plot.

As a result, while the story is worth reading, it doesn’t make one long for sequels the way the vampire novels do although Monster Island was a very disappointing novel. If you enjoy Pulp Horror, check this out.
Great book plsta anyone needing to sink their teeth into a good werewolf tale. Takes a new spin on the idea that werewolves shift when the moon is up, and kept my interest until the last page.
However, for anyone just wanting a good werewolf story, halfway through the book it takes a break from the werewolf stuff and focuses on weklington backstory. It’s still interesting, but the time away from the lore does tend to drag on. I loved this new series for me but I think there are only two books in the series.
Sep 21, Manya rated it really liked it. This savid an enjoyable read even when I realised I’d read this before. I think I would have wanted a bit more ‘grit’ but I think I will still be the sequel a try. Molto carino, mi ha preso molto all’inizio ma pecca leggermente alla fine. David Wellington centra il bersaglio con questo urban fantasy.

Frostbite is an intriguing werewolf tale set in the arctic Canadian forest that relies on the formulaic style of start with the end, then go back and explain what led up to it, which makes for a somewhat disorganized pacing. However, once the novel gets going, the characterization is compelling enough to drive readers through the story.
For those werewolf aficionados, the novel observes traditional werewolf mythology: However, the “mythology” behind the Lycanthropy curse and its origins is never explained. There are a few qellington plot holes that strain suspension of disbelief–such as how Chey’s cell phone could still work after being caught in a flash flood–and certain character motivations not all of which are answered by novel’s end but overall, the novel is well-crafted with engaging characters that drive the story.
After wrllington escaping this natural disaster, she is chased and treed by a pack of wolves who abandon her at the onset of a more dangerous predator–a davld. The larger ;lata bloodlust forces Chey to climb higher in order to avoid its attempts to savage her, but not before one its claws slices her ankle.
Chey’s resulting sickness carries her through the forest searching for help until she stumbles upon a campfire tended by Dzo, a peculiar man wellingtin a mask. Despite his obvious eccentricities, Chey is forced to rely on Dzo’s aid as he takes her to his friend Monty Powell’s cabin, whom Chey immediately suspects of being the werewolf who attacked her.
