I received a free copy of The Wild from the author in return for an honest review.
On it's own this story is a great stand alone, fast paced, gory and adrenaline fuelled read. I would like to point out however that there is a twist that fans of the authors previous works will totally fangirl over and I would advise those who haven't read his earlier books to perhaps do so before reading this one as I'd hate for you to miss out on that moment. Though I suppose now that I'm typing this I'm thinking that actually the twist could work backwards too, but personally I would suggest reading Consumed: Volume 1 beforehand.
As I do with all of Kyle's books, I highly recommend reading The Wild. I'm a huge fan of his style of horror and have yet to be disappointed when picking up his books.
