This was a fun and original take on the lycanthropy/post apocalyptic genre. It’s not your typical werewolf story and I appreciated the risks the author took by in going her own direction. The story is fluid, well-written and I found myself heavily engaged from start to finish. This was a refreshing read in a genre that sometimes feels stale and lacking originality. I highly recommend Wolf Trek to anyone that enjoys shorter fiction with rich characters and full of action!

Super engaging through action and dialogue. Characters pop and pages turn and you’re done. I liked it very much.

What first caught my attention about the book was its beautiful cover. And under the cover, there’s a story full of action, magic, high stakes, and emotions. Wolf Trek is an intriguing combination of dystopian werewolf thriller and Mexican mythology. It spans thirteen years and follows the fate of a boy called Saad and his friends and family. The author shoved them into such a dangerous world that they cannot drop their guard for a single moment. I recommend it to all fans of werewolves and dyst ...more
This is an entertaining novella that I finished reading in one sitting. It is set in a post-apocalyptic future where there is great danger in the world. Resources are scarce and hard to find. In what towns that still exist, people must trade for items rather than purchase them with cash. Life may be harsh in this future, but there is still love and ready assistance. But the biggest danger comes from what appear to be werewolves. Those who have succumbed to this disease must be killed and their b ...more

Never having read a book about werewolves, I didn’t know what to expect when I started Wolf Trek. What I found was a story with details which gave me vivid imagery, especially in action scenes (and there are many). Estrada ties themes like the importance of familia, overcoming obstacles, and accepting change into the storyline effortlessly as the tale of surviving an impossible situation unfolds. What makes her works more appealing to me as a Hispanic is the weaving she does so effectively of ou ...more

I know people don't like when writers review their own books, but this poor little novella is really a great coming of age story and didn't get the attention it deserves. I love the idea of Nahuatls fighting modern day werewolves. If you are into this magical realism or speculative fiction, you will enjoy this book! ...more
