  • Praise for Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves:


    "Vivid, dangerous, and absolutely exhilarating, Cold The Night, Fast The Wolves imagines a world teeming with predators both animal and human, telling a captivating story of survival alongside a heartwarming bond that grows between girl and feral fighter-wolf."

    Chloe Gong, NYT Bestselling author of These Violent Delights

    "If you've ever wondered what would happen if Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff, and Marissa Meyer got together to write JULIE OF THE WOLVES meets FIREFLY, this book's for you!

    Set on a frozen planet with high-speed sled racing, high-risk mining, and a teen girl and a she-wolf on the run from a crime boss, Meg Long's thrilling sci-fi debut delivers a fresh twist on classic survival stories and frontier myths. It also tells a harrowing yet hopeful story of found family and resilience that tackles corporate greed, genetic-engineering, climate change, injustice, and cruelty. COLD THE NIGHT, FAST THE WOLVES is an out-of-this-world joyride you don't want to miss!"


    — Alyssa Raymond, bookseller

    "Wholly unique and unexpected, this cut-throat story of survival kept me on the edge of my seat. Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves is a beautifully written, dangerous debut that packs one heck of a punch."


    Adalyn Grace, NYT Bestselling author of All the Stars and Teeth

    Portrait image of Meg Long

    Meg originally wanted to be a spy. Instead she somehow found herself teaching overseas in China and Malaysia before ending up in Colorado, where it snows entirely too much.


    She taught middle and high school for eight years before jumping into the tech industry as a content designer. Her debut novel, COLD THE NIGHT, FAST THE WOLVES, will be released in 2022 from Wednesday Books. She was a Pitch Wars mentee in 2018 and a mentor in 2020. She is represented by Alexandra Machinist at ICM Partners.


    When not reading or writing, she’s kicking things at her Muay Thai gym with her boyfriend, playing video games, or obsessing over Sailor Moon fanart.


    Fun Facts: Meg likes Oxford commas, bossing her Roomba around, and people-watching at airports.
