Synopsis: "War is nothing more than a series of bitter disappointments" 22-year-old and self-described "world's worst poet" HC Diego goes on an epic trip from Buffalo, New York to Dulce, New Mexico. The mission? To take 8-year-old Aimée Dumont to see her father. Armed with only a M1 Carbine and a Glock 35, the two go against high odds in a time not too far from the present during a world wide war against an anonymous alien force. Along the way, the two meet new friends, face unknown dangers, and come across profound moments. "Poem for the Wolves", an epic sized tale filled with action, poetry, and human moments, is the second novel by author Andrew Cyrus Hudson.
Review: Unfortunately, 'Poem for the Wolves' falls into the "Did Not Finish" category for me. I didn't feel any connection to the characters and it's because I felt the book started in the middle. HC and Aimée are already together trying to get to New Mexico. I don't know if there was going to be some back story or flashbacks as the story went on, but I wasn't able to stay interested in the characters and the events taking place. Also, Earth was under attack by some kind of aliens, but they seemed vague. I'm sorry to say I wasn't able to get into the story at all.
