Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of the Remaining series...

They took everything - killed his wife, enslaved his daughter, destroyed his life. Now he's a man with nothing left to lose...and that's what makes him so dangerous.

Ten years after the collapse, Huxley has built a good life again. He has a loving wife, a farm with fields of golden barley, and a daughter with a strange and wonderful gift. Then the slavers come. Working out in the fields during the attack, Huxley returns too late. His daughter has been taken, and his wife is bleeding out, her last whispered words about a man with a scorpion tattoo on his neck.

Where do the slavers go? Huxley has no idea. He knows only that they head east, and so will he, setting out on foot across the desert of the Wastelands. Eighteen months into his journey, he has no hope of ever seeing his daughter alive. Dying of thirst in the open desert, he doesn't even expect to see another day.

Then a man appears out of the desert and offers Huxley water from his canteen, an unheard of kindness in these savage times. Jay is an odd man, full of violence and guided by his hatred of the slavers, but he helps Huxley survive. And he gives Huxley a new purpose: Nothing can bring back the dead, but the two men can chase down the slavers and make them bleed.

Together Huxley and Jay carve a path of destruction across the remains of a once-great land. The slavers are brutal, but they have no idea what's coming for them. Huxley has found something to live for again: blood and vengeance.

In his most powerful work yet, New York Times best-selling author D. J. Molles delivers a carefully woven novel of violence and redemption, bringing to life a devastating portrait of a man pushed to the edge of his own humanity.

    What did you like most about Wolves?

    I really liked the wild west aspect to the aftermath of the apocalypse


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wolves?

    The outcome of the drawing given to Hux by his daughter near the end


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Either Borderline or the Slavers barge


    Any additional comments?

    Captain Lee Harden's adventure is one of my favorite characters/tellings, and The Remaining, a shining star in the undead apocalypse genre, take out the undead, and then you have Wolves, an excellent take on the modern day Wild West. come on Mr Molle, more please from Hux!!!

    "5 stars is not enough for this incredible book."
    Would you listen to Wolves again? Why?

    No. I never listen to audiobooks or even read books twice. The surprise is gone and i like to experience other material.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Huxley is the main character and the author creates a monster. He is focused to avenging his loss, but always questions his feelings, trying to hang on to a slither of his former self.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to the entire The Remaining series and Christian Rummel is superb as a narrator. In Wolves he really surpasses even that. Simply brilliant. His emotions are deep and wide.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not in particular. The entire book was immense.


    Any additional comments?

    Forget glamour, action hero post apocalypse. This is a gritty, and brutal as you could imagine. I enjoyed the western feel to it. DJ Molles pulls no punches and offers no apologies. Probably the best audiobook i have ever listened to. It was that good.

    "Brilliant. I do have one criticism."

    OK, so after listening to The Remaining series, I consider myself a BIG fan of both DJ Molles and Christian Rummel; I expected A LOT from this book.

    As expected, the writing was nothing short of brilliant. DJ Molles is a master of descriptive words and analogies, pushing my imagination to perform in ways I didn't know were possible.

    Christian Rummel brings the story to life with many different voices, expertly matched to the individual character's personality. DJ and Christian are an amazing team.

    Now, my criticism... DJ takes a long time to reveal the back story of the main character and the main character's overall goal is obscure for most of the book... for that reason, even though there is PLENTY of action, I felt like I didn't know what I was rooting for. Because DJ tells us so little about the main character initially, I had a hard time feeling a connection to him... until much later in the book. By the end of the book, I was absolutely connected to him.

    I understand why DJ revealed the details he did at the pace he did, but there were unintended consequences. I still absolutely recommend the book and, now that I'm emotionally invested, I CANNOT WAIT for the next book in the series!

    "Gritty"

    I've loved Molles' work since his first book, I didn't know what to expect from this new series, and I was very happy with the entire story. This story is far more brutal than his previous stories, and far more philosophical. You'll find yourself in the character's head justifying evil acts, only to regret them later. And then doing it all over again. This is a story about a real person, not someone who is always strong or brave or compassionate, but totally inconsistent--like me and like you. Buckle up!

    "Immersive world, raw emotion, Excellent book."
    What did you love best about Wolves?

    The setting and atmosphere. The author and reader went to great lengths to establish the backdrop of this story, and it worked wonders for keeping me hooked while I came to conflict with how the story was unfolding.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jim Davies. Even though he was described as the penultimate foil to the protagonist, and for all intents and purposes represented all that is evil within the story, he acknowledges his own treachery and affiliation to it, even admits to despising it, but continues on due to a sense of duty. He's just as flawed as the protagonist, but true to the definition of a Foil is also equally skilled and witted.


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to the entirety of The Remaining (also by D.J. Molles) that was read by Christian Rummel. This performance was just as good as those books, and even went farther into showing the depth and range of characters Mr. Rummel could portray.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were several times throughout the story where I didn't readily know where the story was going to go, and I wasn't entirely pleased with the direction. I'm glad I continued listening, because it really plays to the strength of the story. I wasn't intended to openly support the actions of the protagonist, and might have been encouraged to despise him. I don't know if I consider this an extreme reaction, but the emotion within this story and Rummel's performance was laser focused on where it was intended to be. There were a few giggle-worthy points in the story, and plenty of opportunities for sadness, but I didn't find myself actually laughing or brought to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    This most probably pulls inspiration in tone and setting from the Mad Max and Apocalypse Now stories, and you can tell the author went to great strides to make sure this story was worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the themes of these two, all the while maintaining it's own identity. This is truly an exceptional story. It doesn't pull any punches.

    "Great book."

    Well.... Molles true to form knocked it out of the park once again. The Remaining Series was fantastic. The only reason I bought this book was because Molles wrote it. And just as I thought the book was awesome. Couldn't stop once I started. At least now that I'm finished I know I will at least get some sleep. Christian Rummel did a fantastic job narrating once again. He is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. You won't regret spending the credit.

    "The Unforgiven times 100."

    This has gone up to the top 3 favorite books of all time. The narration was fantastic.

    The story, the best way to describe the story is this. The last 5 minutes of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven, but over and over. It was an amazing story of revenge, triumph, and inner reflection. I know, sounds goofy, but i loves this book. I'll be listening to it many more times.

    "five stars"

    I'll admit I was hesitant at first. I'm not usually into this style of sci-fi fantasy. I go more for zombie military apocalypse. DJ developed great characters and a great story. The struggle of the main character is what kept me listening. if you like suspense and unexpected turns I implore you to check this book out.

    I enjoyed this book, definitely worth the listen, it's a post apocalyptic story but without zombies and they don't even describe what caused the apocalypse but the book is still great. The narration was great too.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Wolves to be better than the print version?

    I absolutely loved "The Remaining" series. I was hoping he had other books and was looking actually on the day it was released. It is a little slow to start, so let him fill in the story for you. But the story grabs you and just takes you. As with all audiobooks, the narrator is more important then the book. This one doesn't disappoint. Christian Rummel is the perfect voice for this story.
