Description

Life after climate catastrophe is a dystopian nightmare

Brit Griffin's series The Wintermen wraps up as Johnny Slaught tangles with new Talos strongman Eton Love over who the future belongs to: the people and the land, or the same old capitalist profiteers. With a slim promise of spring on the horizon, megalomaniac Love is gearing up for a cut and run replay of business as usual, and that means grabbing the wealth that lies within the Wintermen's territory. But the forests, deep snows, and wolves, have a different idea about the fate of the northern landscape. Caught between these two powerful forces, Slaught and his community now decide which side they're on. Can they salvage a liveable future from the winter-swept remains of the planet, or is human greed just too powerful?

Editorial Reviews

"An exciting conclusion ... A crucial reminder of our role in keeping the lands we love safe. "-- Karen McBride, author of Crow Winter.The Wintermen III is a wonderfully written story filled with memorable characters and nail biting action. It is so well written you don't notice how Griffin manages to infuse it with her plea for change. If you like your fantasy/adventure seasoned with intelligence and compassion this is the story for you.-- Richard Marcus, Blogcritics.orgThe Wintermen III: At the End of the World, is a dystopian thriller, a meditation on human resilience, corporate greed, intransigence, and the wisdom of nature that is a triumphant end to the series. Griffin is a writer who in fiction and non-fiction remarkably reflects the lived experience of ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. I anxiously await her next project. --Bill McBain, Co-host of The Urban Zoo,
