The Lovereading4Kids comment
TV presenter Steve Backshall tells a cracking adventure set in a remote and treacherous corner of Siberia as Saker and Sinter do everything they can to sabotage an illegal oil pipeline. Their mission is deadly dangerous. Not only do they have to contend with the dangers and risks of the freezing conditions but they also have to fight off hungry polar bears and wolves who will do anything to get something to eat. Throw in their human enemies and the full danger is exposed! A thrilling and richly atmospheric story. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Wilds of the Wolf by Steve Backshall
Gripping adventure fiction from Deadly TV presenter Steve Backshall, perfect for fans of Anthony Horowitz and Charlie Higson. This is the third adventure in the Falcon Chronicles, filled with intrigue, adventure, exotic wildlife and dramatic locations. Saker and Sinter escape by the skin of their teeth when their plan to sabotage a billionaire businessman plundering 'black gold' (natural oil and gas) and hunting wolves in the remote Yamal peninsula in North West Siberia goes disastrously wrong. But they escape one kind of peril only to find themselves in an even more terrifying situation. Separated by blizzards and avalanches, lost in a breathtakingly beautiful but deadly frozen Arctic wilderness, suffering from frostbite and hunger, listening to the wolves howl and the packs draw closer, it seems that this time they cannot possibly live to tell their tale...
Praise for Steve Backshall
Steve Backshall's first foray into fiction tells the story of Saker and Sinter. On the run, they find themselves turned into an unlikely pair of eco warriors. Fast paced with a serious message. ANGELS AND URCHINS
Exciting to read and vividly brought to life in the dramatic backgrounds of India and China, this is also an important story about protecting wild life. -- Julia Eccleshare LOVEREADING4KIDS
Tiger Wars is an excellent debut. Backshall's pacy narrative carries us with him, educating along the way, and his characters fascinate. This won't be the last we hear from Sinter and Saker. We Love This Book
A great adventure story with equal amounts of tigers, wars... and thrills galore! -- Daniel Wood (young reviewer) FIRST NEWS
Backshall has dreamed up a gripping action thriller in the heat of India. The wicked Wolf who's in charge of the plot to nab Saker, makes for an excellent villain and Backshall isn't afraid to show his vulnerabilities either. Of course there's an animal theme here and the message that poaching and making money from beautiful creatures is a bad thing is heartfelt but doesn't get in the way of a gripping adventure. FLIPSIDE
Zoologist, presenter, adventurer and now novelist, Steve Backshall is quite a talent... Backshall fills the novel with information about the natural world and the ways humans are conspiring to damage it - unless Sinter and Saker can stop them. But with a packed narrative and pacey language, this series will be welcomed by his growing audience. Indeed though, I received two review copies, I have only one left - my nine year old son won't give the other back. -- Tom Jackson BBC WILDLIFE
