TheWildLands-CVR-AuthorApproval-2The Wild Lands is a pulse-pounding YA thriller full of shocking plot twists. It’s the ultimate survival tale of humanity’s fight against society’s collapse.

The Wild Lands hits bookstore shelves today!! It’s been nine years since I wrote the first draft of this Wilderness Thriller set in a post-oil-era, climate-change-altered Alaska.

Many thanks to friends and family who’ve shown enthusiasm for my writing over the years. Thanks also to Amy Tipton, John Morgan and Erin Stein, and all the other fine folks at Imprint and Macmillan for making The Wild Lands a reality.

To celebrate, I’ll be signing copies on February 1st from 5-8 p.m. at Fly Trampoline Park in my hometown, Fairbanks, Alaska. Fly will be giving away few copies at the event, as well as offering deals on jump time! There will be food and drink, too.

Snippets of reviews, spoilers excluded, are listed below.

“This fast-paced book contains all the hallmarks of a classic wilderness survival novel (deadly terrain, vicious predators, literal cliff-hangers) and the best of the postapocalyptic genre … The author’s decades of Alaskan wilderness experience is evident throughout … A great high-stakes wilderness survival tale.” ―School Library Journal

“Heart-thumping suspense for readers who liked Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave.” ―Booklist

“This rugged survival story places a group of teens in a dark, burned-out post-apocalyptic nightmare. Your heart will pound for them as they face terrible dangers and impossible odds. Gripping, vivid, and haunting!” ― Emmy Laybourne, international bestselling author of the Monument 14 trilogy

“A compelling story that wouldn’t let me stop reading. Greci has created both a frightening landscape and characters you believe in and want to survive it.” ― Eric Walters, author of the bestselling Rule of Three series

“A brutal vision of things to come. Greci delivers an apocalyptic odyssey that’s honest, relentless, and backed by his firsthand knowledge of the wilderness.” ― Lex Thomas, author of the Quarantine series

“Heart-racing… A rugged wilderness lover’s post-disaster survivalist tale.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Raw and accessible. Offering hints of Hatchet with markedly more manmade danger.” ―Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“The themes of teamwork, choice and free will are incredibly well done … an intense and thrilling ride.” ―TeenReads.com

The Wild Lands made the list for January’s Best New Young Adult Books from Barnes & Noble!!

Here’s the write up: I have a huge thing for survival stories and for stories set in Alaska, so this book in which Alaska has been cut off from the world by natural disasters and a tiny ol’ breakdown of civilization is at the top of my to-read list. Travis and his little sister, Jess, are two of the only survivors remaining, and food is running out. They have hundreds of miles to cross, rife with desperate and dangerous survivors and starving animals who see them as prey. But they must attempt the journey in order to stay alive, even if the travel itself might kill them.Dahlia Adler

The Wild Lands comes out January 29th!! You should be able to get it from your local Barnes & Noble or Independent Bookstore. Or, you can pre-order it for a discount now.

Happy New Year!
