I kept seeing a lot of mediocre ratings for this but I really liked it, a lot. The planet she has created here is vivid, striking, and even slightly eerie. I was fully into the story and I‘m fairly certain there is going to be another book…and I don‘t have a problem with that.

A Jack London feel with a strong female protagonist on a harsh & fairly violent planet. A slow starting, adventurous dystopian sci-fi with a tense narrative centered on an icy planet where an annual, deadly sled race takes place. Great character development. A lot of tense activity & some serious atmosphere. Strong social commentary. Some slight lapsing of logic, but otherwise great. I'm a fan and I'm impressed by this debut.

Thank you #Netgalley & #WednesdayBooks for providing a copy for an honest review. 

The way Meg Long describes the environment communicates the gritty beauty of our characters' surroundings and the fierce animals that survive there, including themselves. It‘s the right amount of emotion and action; inspiring and survival.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

An action packed, atmospheric, dystopian, survivalist story...with wolves. This debut was everything I hoped it'd be. I could not put this book down! I like that this story was dystopian but not fantasy. I like fantasy but was glad not to have it here. I got to immerse myself in the ice cold world & its characters without having to learn a magic system. Also, no unnecessary love story to distract from the true plotline! So rare & so appreciated.

KateReadsYA This sounds awesome. 4mo

Oh, I loved this debut YA fantasy novel! Set on a distant & icy planet, Sena longs to escape to a different planet after her mothers‘ deaths in the annual race. She vows to have nothing to do with it but can only get money by stealing…when she crosses a powerful mob boss, she‘s forced to start making connections once more. Her relationship with the wolf shines- Sena may make poor choices, but this adventure shows her grow! I hope there‘s a sequel!

Overall I enjoyed this YA adventure featuring Sena, a 17 yo who lives on an ice planet which boasts one big event yearly, a dangerous wolf-sled race across a frozen tundra to reach deposits of sought-after exocarbon. She is orphaned at 12 when her mothers are killed during the race. She finds herself unwillingly drawn into the race and ends up fighting for her and her teammates‘ lives. Filled with great geographical descriptions and exciting ⬇️

robinb adventures, this is a story of resilience, courage and finding one‘s family. It‘s also a great story of the bond between human and animal. It was a bit of a slow starter, and I did get frustrated with Sena at times for committing the same mistakes over and over again, but I found it a very good debut. 4/5⭐️ #coverlove 5mo

Refusing to participate in the race that killed her mothers, Sena is forced to steal enough money to escape her ice bound planet. Things get even more complicated when she finds herself in debt to a crime boss.

So atmospheric! I could feel the chill of the planet & Sena‘s desperation to escape. The world building was great, and Sena was a complicated and intriguing character. A bit slow to start, but really finds its pace 1/2 through. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

This book is so exciting. It's entertaining and there's never a dull moment. Sena lives on a frozen planet and she basically scrapes by as a pickpocket. When she accidentally lands inside a cage with a wolf, everything changes. She and the wolf are basically in some sort of danger from then on.
