Wolf Tracker (After the Crash book 3) by Maddy Barone: MY REVIEW


Wolf Tracker (After the Crash #3)Strong, independent Tami was a survivalist and mountain guide in 2014 when she was flung forward fifty years into a post-apocalyptic future where women are worth their weight in gold. She is taken by four men to be their wife, but when she escapes from them they hire the Tracker, a deadly loner from the Wolf Clan with a reputation for being able to track anything, to bring her back. But Tami knows how to ride and how to hide, and she leads him on a chase that rouses his admiration. Behind Tracker’s stone cold face is a man who yearns for a wife of his own. When he catches up with Tami and learns that she is not a willing wife, he knows he can’t give her up.

My rating: 5 of 5 Cups

Battered, exhausted, and frightened, Tami has just escaped from four delusional men all claiming to be her husband. She survived a plane crash only to discover that her world, as she knew it, is gone.

Quiet and deadly, Tracker just accepted a commission to find Tami. The distraught husband explains that his new, beloved wife has been kidnapped – spirited away by marauders. Tracker takes the generous payment and sets out on a rescue mission.

Tami is well-trained. Before the plane crash, she taught survivalist training, but she is little prepared for the desolation and emptiness of the austere land. Also, she is being followed, tracked by a man with skills that rival her own. Hungry and bone-weary, Tami’s stamina is almost totally depleted by the time Tracker discovers her hidden camp.

This story drew me in from the first page. Both Tami and Tracker are likable, honorable and charismatic. Told with an easy familiarity, there is droll humor to lighten what could otherwise have been a dark, depressing tale of our world fifty years hence, after a great and terribly destructive war. Although this book is 3rd in a series, I read it and got full-enjoyment out of it without having read the previous two books. I must admit, though, that I have become enchanted with this author’s ability to snare me with her words; I will be adding all of her books to my wish list.
