"Waubgeshig Rice's stories are good medicine. Moon of the Turning Leaves is a restorative balm for my spirit." Angeline Boulley, New York Times bestselling author of Firekeeper's Daughter

In this gripping stand-alone literary thriller set in the world of the award-winning post-apocalyptic novel Moon of the Crusted Snow, a scouting party led by Evan Whitesky ventures into unknown and dangerous territory to find a new home for their close-knit Northern Ontario Indigenous community more than a decade after a world-ending blackout.

For the past twelve years, a community of Anishinaabe people have made the Northern Ontario bush their home in the wake of the power failure that brought about societal collapse. Since then they have survived and thrived the way their ancestors once did, but their natural food resources are dwindling, and the time has come to find a new home.

Evan Whitesky volunteers to lead a mission south to explore the possibility of moving back to their original homeland, the "land where the birch trees grow by the big water" in the Great Lakes region. Accompanied by five others, including his daughter Nangohns, an expert archer, Evan begins a journey that will take him to where the Anishinaabe were once settled, near the devastated city of Gibson, a land now being reclaimed by nature.

But it isn't just the wilderness that poses a threat: they encounter other survivors. Those who, like the Anishinaabe, live in harmony with the land, and those who use violence.

A decade after the outside world ended/the power went out, the group of Anishinaabe who moved away from their reservation have depleted the local resources. Nangohns, now a teenager with little memory of the Before Times, goes with some of the others to see if there’s a better place to live. It’s both a tense survival narrative, where small mistakes can cost dearly, and also clearly part of the broader cozy-ish trend of being concerned with the details of living in the post-apocalypse, rather than missions (despite the journey at its center) and political structures or daring rescues. Very graphic description of the aftermath of violence, which fits in well with the themes--there are no wisecracking heroes here. ( )

Moon of the Turning Leaves picks up about ten years after the end of Moon of the Crusted Snow, and although the tribe has survived in their northern enclave, they want to explore and possibly return to ancestral lands towards the south. The bulk of the narrative follows a group that sets out to find out what lies to the south which includes Evan and his now teenage daughter, Nangohns. There is a lot of action and some violence as they venture through the abandoned world, and they meet others — both good and bad — and they learn more about what happened to the rest of the country. Readers who enjoyed the first book and want to know more will definitely enjoy this sequel. ( )

Thiss the sequel to the surprising and fascinating apocalyptic novel, The Moon of Crusted Snow, in which the inhabitants of an isolated reserve in northern Ontario are cut off from the rest of the world when all communication technology suddenly stops working. At the beginning of this sequel, twelve years have passed and the small Anishinaabe tribe have settled a short distance from their old settlement, having built traditional dwellings and having embraced their heritage, from their language and customs to the ways they interact with the world around them. And for a time, that has served them well, but now the lake holds fewer fish and they realize that they will need to move to a new location. A plan is hatched to send a small group to their ancestral grounds on the banks of Georgian Bay. This novel is the story of that journey.

I'm an outlier on this, but I am so tired of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic novels. There's a sameness to them and I find it hard to be pulled into the same tired story. The Moon of Crusted Snow was different enough for me to be intrigued and Rice created characters who were very likable. The sequel was fine, but it falls into the patterns of the genre, making it more predictable. Still, for those who loved the first book, the sequel will be a satisfying read. ( )

The book begins with a beginning - the birth of a baby girl - in a beautifully written prologue! And it ends with an ending - a death - also beautifully written! And all together, an excellent sequel!

The power is still out, with no explanation - still. 6 from the tribe are chosen to find out what happened, and they journey out to find some answers. The first half of the story is about their journey, and though that may look boring, it really isn't. And when they start meeting up with other survivors, the story really picks up!

Unfortunately the Trumpsters have also survived, only now they are calling themselves the Disciples. Avoiding them, while finding a new place to settle is the major challenge the walkers face. Well, that, and just staying alive in general! I really enjoyed reading this book, and was genuinely saddened when I finished. ( )

Twelve years after their small community abandoned their homes and trekked further from civilization to avoid the post-apocalyptic societal chaos, a small group of six Anishinaabe, led by Nangohns' father Evan, make a bold but risky decision to venture south once again to seek out their ancestral lands.

Rice's writing is beautiful. I immediately felt immersed in and found myself savoring the suspenseful narrative. I loved the glimpses into Aniishinabe culture and appreciated how Rice incorporated the language in such a way that assumed an intelligent reader would infer meaning from context. Great sequel! ( )
