The quaint, little resort town of Banff, Alberta, set against the backdrop of majestic mountains and glacier lakes, is being torn apart by Huskers: virally-altered humans acting on deep, carnal instincts. The surviving populace, including Raven Falconer, her roommates, and RCMP Officer Zygmunt Nowicki, battle for resources, their lives, and a safe place to call their own.
Nathan Edwards, self-appointed leader of the Husker band, aggressively leads his group on horrific death-and-devour missions throughout the community, instilling fear among the healthy, and destroying any hope of rescue or survival. Episode Two looks inside the murderous horde, their thoughts, actions and the sense of ‘pack’ that develops, as their numbers grow. The once peaceful Biathlon Olympian controls the egregious Huskers with overblown aggression and a gift for carnage. He rules, trying to fill an insatiable void, temporarily satisfying vulgar urges, while dominating the mob – simply because he can.
As if the girls and Ziggy didn’t have enough to cope with, a new threat emerges, extending an olive branch, tainted with arsenic. Darwin Gladue, visionary and self-anointed chief of a local native tribe, violently takes control of his people and leads them on a desperate errand to restore their tribal lands.
Diminishing supplies, greed, lust and an unstoppable will to survive will pit the three parties against one another, culminating in a spectacular climax of death and ruination, but for whom?
Review: Dennis Larsen does it again. The first book in the series sucked me in, and the second was no different! I fell in love with the characters all over again, as well as learned to hate a couple of them! I love how the huskers are changing, and how the humans react to the change! A very well written book, and I cannot wait to read the next!
