Yes When a beautiful finished copy of this book and it's simply stunning found its way into my mailbox I was overly excited to read it so here's a big thank you to ScholasticThe first thought that I had after I finished Hear the Wolves was Wow Not only was this an amazing read but having never read anything from Victoria Scott before I found myself incredibly impressed with her amazing and captivating writing styleThe story is told from the main character Sloan's point of view starting from the beginning where we are introduced to her enjoyment of hunting with her father She has her own rifle for taking down small game such as rabbits while her father has a shotgun for hunting bigger animals and keeping them safe from the wolves that roam the woods by their home The circle of life isn't a circle at all It's a straight line with hunters on one end and prey on the other The family hunts a lot of rabbit which provides a decent amount of income for them as well as food Since there are so many rabbits living in the woods the large amounts of wolves that live there too don't really bother the people in the town because they essentially have all the rabbits they can eat However when a fence goes up it disrupts the rabbits' habitats and of course the that are hunted the less there are for the wolves to eat making them hungrier and willing to do whatever it takes to get foodSo when the entire small town heads into a larger town for a special voting session that involved keeping their township separate Sloan's father and sister head out as well leaving Sloan at home for the short time that they are scheduled to be gone Because of Sloan's problems with being alone since an incident involving her mother as a child she is terrified at first but then realizes that she might just be fineAnd then the snow starts fallingWhen the harsh realization that the roads are completely becoming covered in snow and leaving it impossible for her father and sister or any others in town to return Sloan begins to panic and heads to the church in town Once there she meets up with a few other townspeople including a boy that she hates because he was the one to find her during that incident all those years ago a schoolteacher a little boy and an older woman who has fallen on a pitchfork and desperately needs medical attentionAs a group they set out to try and get to a doctor or hospital the only way they can think of aside from the roads the river However in order to get to the river they must first go through the woodsAnd the wolves are hungryDesperately trying their hardest to get through the woods alive with only a few shells for her father's shotgun and several bullets for her rifle Sloan and the others try to team up to get help even though the wolves are willing to eat anything they can even the people in the townEvading the wolves is an exhausting task as the group wades through the heavy snowfall and the bitter cold temperatures trying to surviveThis book is seriously amazing I love thrillers so I knew this was going to be something I fell in love with from the first page and I was right I thought it was amazing It's such an interesting survival story and it isn't one that is sugarcoated or that is watered down as some middle grade books are No this one is actually even honest that some adult thrillers I've read making it such a real and downright terrifying novelWhile this is listed as a middle grade book I think that some of the content in the book is better suited for older middle graders maybe twelve and thirteen year old readers as some of it is kind of violent and a tad bit on the gory sideThe characters in this book all have their own personalities and the first thing you're going to notice about Sloan is that she is no nonsense and isn't afraid to do what needs to be done in order to survive The ordeal with her mother from when she was a small child definitely shaped her into who she is today but she also has the courage to take charge of a bad situation She's such an inspiring heroine for the novel and adds a lot of personality to it Hear the Wolves is incredibly fast paced nail biting action from the first page until the last It will leave you at the edge of your seat and wanting until you find yourself finishing the novel in one sittingIf you like survival stories this isn't one you want to missNote I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review Thank you

kindle ↠ Hear the Wolves Ù Victoria Scott

Sloan is a hunterSo she shouldn’t be afraid of anything But ever since her mom left the family and she lost hearing in one ear in a blizzard it’s been hard to talk to people and near impossible to go anywhere or do anything without her dad or big sister within eyesight it An excellent survival tale Halfway through it reminded me of Jack London's To Build a Fire In Hear the Wolves a group of 6 people in rural Alaska try to make their way to medical assistance after one of them gets hurt during a blizzard Fighting sub zero conditions oozing wounds and starving wolves they make their way slowly toward helpThis book is only 240 pages which works perfectly The writing is bare bones without a lot of words wasted on description This doesn't mean you won't feel frozen isolated or terrified right along with the group though The author strikes just the right balance between telling you and letting your imagination take care of the restThis is touted as a middle grade book which is probably fine in the same way that the school board thinks To Build a Fire is fine for that age Themes of desperation violence loss and death abound indeed not everyone survives the trek Still there is a sense of accomplishment and hope at the end I wouldn't have liked this book as a middle schooler but I like it plenty as an adult
