3.5 out of 5 stars

A copy of this was provided free of charge from the publisher in return for an honest review.

The story in this book has four focal points, Frieda is a primatologist who has an amazing talent with Bonobo’s, but has her entire world shatter along with her head following an attack on the way home. She is fortunate to get another job at a private zoo, and her new charge is a beautiful and wild Siberian Tiger.

This cub came from the wilds of Siberia, and the second story concerns Tomas and his father and the men that work with them monitoring the tigers that wander their vast landscapes. In this wilderness are a mother and a daughter who are eking out a living on the scares foods that are available, until one day they attract the attention of a female Siberian Tiger. The final story is from this tiger’s perspective as she brings up her cubs in one of the most hostile environments on this planet.

I liked lots of things about this book; I liked the way the four separate stories linked and the way that she brought them all together at the end and I liked the way that the final story was written from the perspective of the tiger. The flawed characters were great and added the necessary drama to the plot, but I did have the odd issue with it though, in particular a couple of scenes that came across as utterly implausible. But they were minor really, the part that shines throughout each of the stories is the magnificent Siberia Tiger.
