Description

Seventeen-year-old Webb's abusive stepfather has made it impossible for him to live at home, so Webb survives on the streets of Toronto by busking with his guitar and working as a dishwasher. When Webb's grandfather dies, his will stipulates that his grandsons fulfill specific requests. Webb's task takes him to the Canol Trail in Canada's Far North, where he finds out that there are much scarier things than the cold and the occasional grizzly bear. With an Indigenous guide, two German tourists and his guitar for company, Webb is forced to confront terrible events in his grandfather's past and somehow deal with the pain and confusion of his own life. Webb's adventures start in Barracuda, part of The Seven Prequels and continue in Tin Soldier, part of The Seven Sequels.

Review quote

This very well may be one of my favourite books that I've read this year. From the moment I picked it up, I knew I had my hands on something GOOD. A fast-paced book, Devil's Pass gripped me from page 1 and didn't let me go under after I read the last sentence in the book. I love the concept of this series--seven authors wrote seven books about seven grandchildren who are all affected by the death of their grandfather and the tasks he's outlined for them in his will. I am definitely looking forward to reading more of these books, but I love that I don't have to read them in any particular order, or that I don't even have to read all of them if I don't want to. This is a brilliant concept, and in the instance of Devil's Pass was executed perfectly. It left me craving more.-- "Once Upon a Bookshelf blog"
