The Wolf Mile is a fast-paced mashup of The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones!
Tyler is looking for his missing sister, Morgan. Lana is looking to heal after an assault at a college party. Both believe their answer lies within the Pantheon. The Pantheon is a collection of seven houses of people vying for victory by physically battling within the modern-day world. At stake is fame and fortune but also the risk of death. For rich subscribers, no sum is too great to pay to watch the fights—or to bet upon the victors.
In Edinburgh, Tyler and Lana are recruited to the tunnel-dwelling Hordes. First, they must fight their way through a grueling boot camp before participating in fighting the Hordes mortal enemy, the Titans.
I loved the training portion of the book. Who wouldn’t be intrigued by this description?
“It seems we all live in a soulless world. A place of routine and debt. Where every week is the same as the next. We offer the glamour of the unknown. The thrill of the enigma. The blank canvas on which everyone can paint their dreams.“
However, by the end of the book, I was enthralled by the different houses. I am hoping that subsequent books move beyond Edinburgh to visit other houses, especially the enemy free Huns.
If you like fantasy or either of the two series I mentioned in the intro, I believe you will enjoy The Wolf Mile too. 4 stars! I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.
Thanks to Head of Zeus, Aries Books, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
