Little Wolves by Thomas Maltman

08/17/2015

Little wolvesWow, what an intense book, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I previewed this book. Lone Mountain, Minnesota is a community wracked by a startling act of violence by a troubled youth. At the center of the trauma are the Fallon, Gunderson, and Warren families, all of whom share complicated relationships that even they do not fully understand. Little Wolves is generally described as a farm-based murder mystery which includes folklore and Norse mythology to tell the story; I would describe the book as more of a Gothic horror novel which demands readers to contemplate the unseen horrors and every-day evils that surround all of us, even in seemingly safe communities. By the end of Maltman’s novel, which is not for the faint of heart, no one is left unscathed.
