A thrilling tale of survival. . . Wellington is a vivid storyteller, whether describing gruesome attacks, expressing the subtle attraction between man and woman, or chronicling the life of a troubled teen. --Associated Press

Terrific; a literate, smartly constructed page-turner. . . Wellington again proves himself as one of the very best authors of contemporary horror fiction. --Bookgasm.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The characters are also very likable.

I decided to give Overwinter a shot anyway and am really glad I did-- this feels like the other Wellington books I've read.
Constant Reader
The end was satifying but definitely not what I wanted to see.

I've been a Wellington fan since his first book, but I have to admit I didn't like Frostbite all that much-- I couldn't decide if I wanted more characterization or more action, but I felt something was missing compared to his usual books! I decided to give Overwinter a shot anyway and am really glad I did-- this feels like the other Wellington books I've read. The action is nonstop, with everything from landmines to a Siberian hunter who's figured out how to make himself invulnerable to werewolves, Wellington's descriptions of the Arctic landscape are great, and he creates a really satisfying mythos that provides a surprise ending that at the same time makes perfect sense. As one of the other reviewers noted, this seems to be a wrap-up of the tale (no third book); I wonder if it felt like a more complete read because it had a clear direction to head in. Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you liked all his other books, even if you're like me and weren't a huge Frostbite fan, you should definitely read Overwinter... and, if you didn't read Frostbite, Wellington gives enough clues that (I think) you could also read Overwinter and catch up as you go (altho' the other reviewers liked F'bite, so maybe it's just me.)

Any way you look at it, an absolute couldn't-put-it-down adventure...

Format: Paperback
With Frostbite, I found myself really liking the way the werewolf tales come togehter. In Overwinter, I felt like things really just stepped up and began moving forward. Here, the actions seems almost non-stop and the movement of the book makes Frostbite seem like its standing still. The ideas here are excellent, the methods in the book are pretty interesting, and the characters are nice to riding shotgun with. I personally thought this book would have a lapse in it because this seemed like it would be a more dull variation - most have that in the middle of a tale - but there is no place for that here. If anything, the beauty of everything from the slaughter to the way the world seems to be bathed in wonder is overwhelming well-thought out.
I have to say I enjoyed it immensely.

One of the things this book teaches is that Wellington can add action to a saga. As I said before, I really liked Frostbite BUT it was one of those books that seemed to have a heartbeat in it that simply pointed out beauty in wording. Wellington is nothing is not a gifted writer, and I loved what he had to say when he described places. The other pieces were aswesome to behold as well, but the way that landscape comes across makes you almost feel the chill. In this bok, the chill can be in both the world around you and in the world that is filled with danger, and you get to the point where you wonder what might happen. I personally foudn myself losing sleep that way, catching page after page in a vice my mind created that had to keep going.

Whether you were a fan of Frostbite or not, you really need to try this book on. It seems like the conclusion to something remarkable and grand, and it is a werewolf story that is savage and lovely at the same time.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Cheryl on October 29, 2010
Format: Paperback
Overwinter picks up where Frostbite left off, with Chey and Powell travelling north, away from Port Radium. Powell still insists that there's a cure for lycanthropy and he's determined to find it. Along the way, Dzo turns up again, as does a new character, Lucie, with whom Powell has a past. Lucie wants Powell for herself, and to make matters worse, she's on the run from Varkanin, a Russian who she's made an enemy of. Unofficially backed by the Canadian government, which is determined to rid the country of werewolves for financial reasons, Varkanin chases the foursome to the Arctic Circle while Powell searches for clues to a cure that no one is sure even exists.

Though Overwinter is similar to Frostbite: Chey and Powell are being hunted and their wolves hatred of humans results in a body count, in the sequel we learn more about Powell and his past, the origins of the curse and about spirits like Dzo. An unforseen problem for one of the characters makes it essential for them to find the cure quickly if they're ever to hope for normal human lives again (or as normal as can be after having been wolves who've killed people). There was plenty of action and I thought that the characters' goal, to rid themselves of their wolves, made this book a more interesting read than the first.

The one thing that I was a little disappointed with was the ending, and by that, I literally mean the last few pages. The conclusion seemed a bit abrupt (and I thought one thing that occurred was a little odd) after all the time spent leading up to it. Additionally, there was no explanation of what happened, or might have happened, after the last scene. If there was to be a third book, then no problem with the ending, it's just a cliffhanger.
