it is a nice thriller but not great. it is enjoyable but have it flaws. i admit it took me around 60 pages to start to enjoy. l have read any of Patrie thrillers before. so to take for granted that the reader knows the history and the burden Ash is carry in his wounded soul takes time. the title is exactly what you meet first - a wild one. slowly we find out why he is so brutal and aggressive to humanity or to the worst part of it. Patrie have a great sense of landscape and his description of ...more

Another striking and lovely cover for this series, and the blurb sounds riveting, and I'm thrilled that Petrie is one author who's keeping his protagonist's journey as a human being in mind as he crafts these nonstop adventures to threaten Peter's life (again). Cannot wait for this book. Stalking Amazon Vine hoping I will get the privilege of an ARC.

THE WILD ONE welcomes back Peter Ash, our troubled protagonist, with PTSD so severe that he is only ever somewhat relaxed when his life is threatened or he is in the middle of a blizzard.

I'm a big fan of both the author and the character, and each new book in the series has become my favorite.
The writing continues to get better, the stories are always engaging, and the flow of the plots are intriguing.
Each book could function as a standalone, but you'd be better served to start at the beginning and rollercoaster your way all the way to the end of the current book, The Wild One.
I'm not going to explain the plot, you can read the blurbs and excerpts for yourself - but if

Many thanks to #netgalley for the advanced read. I’ve really enjoyed this series, having just discovered it this year. When i found out this particular novel was set in iceland, and having just been in march, I couldn’t wait to see what the author had in store. Absolutely took me back to my trip, and the story was as gripping as the others. Petrie writes a good book.
