Deadly TV presenter Steve Backshall joins Anthony Horowitz and Charlie Higson writing the best adventure fiction with his second novel in the gripping Falcon Chronicles, filled with intrigue, adventure, exotic wildlife and dramatic locations.

Saker and Sinter have split up.

Sinter is nursing in the shanties of Ho Chi Minh city. Saker is with the peace-loving Penan helping them protect the orang utans and save their own forest homes, as unscrupulous loggers wreak destruction. But they are being watched. And hunted.

The Prophet has not forgiven their betrayal. Escaping the Clan takes Saker and Sinter on a deadly, dangerous journey through Vietnam, over the South China Sea back to Borneo. Deep in the jungle, they're reunited on their most daredevil and audacious mission yet, to save the endangered orang utans before they become ghosts of the forest. Beware the wooden bullet.

Praise for The Falcon Chronicles: Ghosts of the Forest

  • A great adventure story with equal amounts of tigers, wars... and thrills galore! - FIRST NEWS - Daniel Wood (young reviewer)

  • 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

  • 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 - unle

  • 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. - LOVEREADING4KIDS - Julia Eccleshare

  • 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

  • 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
