In this stand-alone continuation of the tale begun in Frostbite, horror star David Wellington delivers another gripping werewolf tale in which heroine Chey is once again forced to fight for her own humanity.

Overwinter opens as protagonist Chey, bitten by a werewolf and cursed to live out eternity as a monster, prowls the Arctic Circle on the trail of an ancient secret, the one thing that could remove the lycanthropic curse and make her human again. As she hunts for an answer, she realizes that with every passing day the wolf inside her is becoming stronger and her humanity is slipping away. Meanwhile, another werewolf arrives, an evil centuries-old woman, bent on sabotaging Chey’s quest and stealing away the one thing that’s still important to her.

    " Fantastic book that had be roaring for the good guys to win as always. Wellington has a way of keeping you engaged in the plotline at all times, marking him still as one of my favorite authors. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rob | 1/23/2014

    " My least favorite David Wellington book to date. It's predecessor, Frostbite, was surprisingly good; this one just didn't deliver for me. Too much ancient arctic animal spirits crap for my tastes. Will still continue to read Wellington, as his vampire and zombie books are so noir and edgy - no YA garbage. "

    " Enjoyed the story, especially understanding the origin of Wellington's werewolves, but I felt like something was missing this time around. It didn't have the same magic. "

    " An exciting read. It certainly kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what was going to happen next. I thought Dzo was an interesting character I was glad he was ok at the end. I would definitely recommend reading this story. "

    " I don't even want to start. This book was so boring that it feels like every moment assosiated with it, drowns all my energy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micky Parise | 2/1/2013

    " Overwinter started off from where Frostbitten left off. A excellent 2nd part to the story, loved the characters, loved the plot and loved the author's writing. Recommend this very highly! To get a better enjoyment out of the book, read his 1st book, Frostbitten. Recommend very highly! "

    " Would have been better if he hadn't kept telling us the same information over and over. I get it, silver bullets don't fly true. Sheesh. No interest in reading the previous book, frostbite. "

    " Interesting werewolf tale. Not quite what I was expecting, but still good. Nothing is as it seems which adds a nice air of mystery to the story. The characters are also very interesting. "
