Overview

Wolves by D. J. Molles

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 had built a good life again. He had a loving wife, a farm with fields of golden barley, and a daughter with a strange and wonderful gift. Then the slavers came. 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 only knows that they headed 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 we 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 bestselling 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.

This is a ruthless, violent book about revenge. Similar writing to The Remaining but way more hardcore. This isn't a zombie book but a story about the evil of man. Definitely recommend to anyone who loves an apocalyptic revenge story.

Terrifyingly Aggressive Wolves starts with our main character, Huxley wondering aimlessly through the dessert, with nothing but an empty belly and a heart full of hate. Huxley was once a good man, but when bad things happen, good men die, and evil men are born from their ashes. Slavers came and killed his wife, and took his beloved daughter. The hate burns bright in Huxley, there is no hope for him now, but their might be some for his daughter. Where do the Slavers go?

Wolves by D. J. Molles is a dark, gritty post-apocalyptic western. It is highly recommended for those who like plenty of gun play, violence, and a doomed man on a mission. Huxley is a man who has lost everything. The world as we know it ended for him. He was living on an agricultural commune with his wife and daughter until the Slavers came, killed his wife, and took his daughter to sell. In her dying breath his wife told him the man who took his daughter had a scorpion tattoo on his neck. Now Huxley is crossing the Wastelands, heading east. He is saved from dying when another man, Jay, gives him water. The two travel together, on a mission to avenge and kill slavers. As Huxley and Jay travel the wastelands, tracking the path of a band of slavers as they head east, he acquires a rag tag band of followers. They are hard men on a mission, to kill all the slavers who have ruined their lives. The two are motivated by pain, blood and death now, as they leave a path of destruction in their wake. It is a tragic portrait of a man pushed to his absolute limits. This is a non-stop dark, bloody, violent, gritty, and intense novel. The influence of classic westerns is obvious in this saga of a man on a mission of vengeance and rage toward the people who took his daughter and killed his wife, as well as anyone who enabled the Slavers to continue their evil enterprise. It's also a long novel, so be prepared for the sheer overload of violence you will encounter within these pages. The writing is excellent and above reproach. The character development, descriptions, and world building is exceptional. Honestly, the only drawback is that sometimes this is a hard novel to read because of the tone. It is a dark novel, very ominous, gruesome, bloody, and harsh, with relentless violence. Huxley is a driven man, by grief, and revenge, but also buried deep, by the love for his wife and the daughter he needs to save. There is redemption at the end, but an overwhelming amount of violence lead up to it. Disclosure: My advanced reading copy was courtesy of the publisher for review purposes.

This book is a long read and every word leaves you with a gritty taste in your mouth. With strong examples it poses the question of what it takes to be a good man. Three days after finishing this book I was waking up with certain scenes going through my mind and asking myself questions. The post-apocalyptic environment is the stage for an odyssey through badlands and new lands with friends appearing who may not be friends and enemies appearing who may not be enemies. There are no good guys or bad guys. there are only survivors. The action is suspenseful and continuing. Do all roads lead to a dusty death? You won't be disappointed if you read to find out. Maybe death isn't the worst that can happen.

Dark and disturbing, intense and gripping, violent and soul destroying… Huxley was a teacher, a husband and a father when the skyfire changed his world. He created a second life in what was known as the wastelands and was content growing barley with his wife Charity and daughter Nadine on a commune. Then, the slavers came through, killed his wife and took Nadine to be a slave. A man’s life can change in a moment and his did. As he works his way east to where the slavers go he nearly dies a few times, wreaks vengeance, takes lives and saves a few. What he does turns him into a different man. Remorseless, avenging, seeking justice…he is a predator after prey…and finding plenty to prey upon. At times he asks himself how he feels, makes an assessment, and then continues on his way to where the slavers go to find the man with the scorpion tattoo. Words that come to mind, while trying to describe this book, include: epic, saga, apocalyptic, dystopian, journey, values, valued, slavery, amoral, hedonistic, survival, humanity, inhumanity, law, order, disorder…and many more. This is a powerful book, very dark but also very powerful. It made me consider “what if” and then it made me wonder what I would be willing to do to survive and then finally ask myself if there was anything I would not do to make sure that someone I loved would survive and be able to live a free life. This made me think of books written by John Wyndham that my father collected. It made me think of a movie with Clint Eastwood in which he lost his family and went to seek vengeance. It made me think of the movie Mad Max. It made me think of the Denzel Washington movie in which he is blind and moving West. It made me think of some recent books written by authors such as Megan Crane and Rebecca Zanetti. It is a book I recommend to those who don’t mind dark, gritty and violent and who also are willing to really think and ponder, “what if”. Thank you to NetGalley and Blackstone Publishing for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Amateurish effort by a highschooler? So bloody it become laughable. Why not reduce the effort and simply describe smashed kitties and puppies in the road?

I REALLY wanted to love this book. I devoured the full The Remaining series, agonizing over the wait for the final book. So, I was looking forward to a new series by Mr Molles. Sadly, I could not get into this book. I got to page 78 and quit. It's so dreary, so slow paced, the characters are shallow and did not generate any interest for me in their fates. I don't know what happened, Mr Molles is so much more talented than this. The Remaining grabbed me from the first few sentences and never let go. My recommendation, skip Wolves and read The Remaining instead.
