Our main star in the book is Elka, a 17-year-old who narrates the story. It’s set in British Columbia, or what as once known as British Columbia before the wars. The genre is labeled as post-apocalyptic and that’s a magic phrase for when selecting a book.
Elka is orphaned and at the tender age of seven meets up with a survivalist, a man called Trapper who takes her in. She is taught survival skills and this puts me in mind of the movie Hanna (starring Saoirse Ronin). It’s not the same plot obviously, just the young female being taught survivalist skills, the unconventional upbringing brought this to mind.
After a supply trip into town Elka learns things that alarm her about Trapper and needs to flee. Will her training be good enough to evade Trapper? I liked this book and would read more by this author.
