Saker and Sinter continue their quest to save the world's endangered animals in the bitter cold of an Arctic winter in the third gripping adventure in Deadly TV presenter Steve Backshall's Falcon Chronicles.
The third book in THE FALCON CHRONICLES series from DEADLY 60 and LIVE AND DEADLY presenter Steve Backshall. Follow Saker and Sinter's quest to save the world's endangered animals in the frozen Arctic wilderness.
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 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, they are 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.
Steve Backshall is the hugely popular and fearless presenter of the BBC kids' series DEADLY 60 and LIVE AND DEADLY as well as star of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing 2014.
A thrilling and richly atmospheric story. - lovereading4kids
10/10 - "An action, danger and adventure book" says the cover and IT WAS. - William Longlands, age 10
A really exciting adventure. Saker and Sinter make a great team and I can't wait to read more of their gripping escapades. - Sam Harper, age 10
I enjoyed it so much as the story, characters and location were very detailed. I really liked how the author told us how the animals hunted and survived in the wild without losing the story. - Jemima Wilcox, age 10
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. - BBC WILDLIFE
