My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Rhodes and William take on the wilderness of Alaska during the Iditarod, the 'Last Great Race.'
A very good read - the imagery was wonderful. I found myself yearning to see Alaska, in spite of my better judgement (I hate snow and cold.)
I got a very real sense of the depth of the dangers Rhodes faced. I found it hard to believe she would go on the race without being armed to the teeth. That's just me. I get the creepy crawlies from listening to coyotes howl and yap. I'd want a high-powered rifle if there was a rumor of wolves.
The other characters were also well-drawn, everything fitted together very well.
I found it curious the characters hallucinated during the race. I didn't understand that at all. However that didn't detract from the story.
