Blackstone to Publish Novel by New York Times Bestselling Author D.J. Molles
Blackstone Publishing is proud to announce the upcoming hardcover and e-book release of D.J. Molles' WOLVES [Blackstone Publishing; August 30, 2016], a new novel by the author of the New York Times best-selling Remaining Series. WOLVES melds post-apocalyptic speculative fiction with the spirit of a western to create an unforgettable tale of a man struggling to stay true to himself as he ventures across a lawless landscape in search of his young daughter, whom he still hopes is alive.
Huxley remembers the way life used to be when the Old World still existed, but since the skyfire, the laws of order and civility have vanished, replaced by barbaric acts and survival of the fittest mentality. Huxley manages to salvage a safe, peaceful existence with his wife and daughter, in a tight knit farming commune on the West Coast. One day, however, his world is turned upside down when a band of slavers decimate the village, murdering his wife and taking his daughter captive to sell as a slave in the East. Huxley's mission consumes him: he must hunt down the slavers, exact retribution, and rescue his daughter. While heading East, Huxley unites and leads a diverse group of lone men he encounters along the way, who share his mission to rain down violent justice on the slavers. The men band together as they make their way into the state once known as Texas, where they begin to formulate a plan to go East, into the Riverlands, and killing every slaver who crosses their path along the way.
WOLVES is a visceral, powerful tale of a man who has lost everything, who becomes what he most despises, and then is faced with the question: Can there ever be redemption after what he has done? He sets out to save his daughter, but will she even recognize him now? Have the horrors he has committed changed him into something his own daughter could never love?
EARLY PRAISE FOR WOLVES
"A rollercoaster of blood and dust, Wolves will keep you turning pages deep into the dead of night. D.J. Molles spins a harrowing tale that riffs on the darkest aspects of human nature. Loss, pain, revenge, restitution, and the thirst for survival carry an unlikely cast of characters through a ravaged world that brings the shadows of the human psyche to life. Wolves revives the soul of a western in a dystopian America. Fasten your seatbelt, you're in for a rough and wild ride."
-Eliot Peper, author of Cumulus, Neon Fever Dream, and The Uncommon Series
"Revenant meets Mad Max in this post-apocalyptic thriller that proves DJ Molles is back on the top of the genre."
-Nicholas Sansbury Smith, author of Hell Divers
"With Wolves, D.J. Molles has forged a gorgeously textured and unflinchingly gritty world that fans of King's Gunslinger and McCarthy's The Road are sure to savor to the very end."
-William H. Weber, author of Last Stand: Surviving America's Collapse
