Michael Elia’s gripping new novel is a story of nature’s survival when faced against the brutality of man. Set in the Yukon Territory in Western Canada, a ruthless puma, fed up with the level of poaching happening around him, teams up with a wolf, a lynx, a bobcat and a wolverine, who join forces with a Kodiak, a Grizzly and a Black bear to take their destiny into their own hands.
Predators become prey in Part One of this heart-racing novel, as a massacre of five poachers leads to a lethal pursuit of the puma and his band. The animals must use all of their physical and mental strength to escape from their human hunters, who are led by Wilhelm Hoffman.
The danger deepens in Part Two as we are taken to South-Eastern Poland, where a wolf and a fox join forces with a bear, a lynx and a wildcat in an attempt to massacre Hoffman’s gang. Yet these animals meet a new danger as they face both a rivalry with the poachers they pursue and one with the predators who follow. A deadly pursuit between poachers, predators and herbivores moves towards Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains, and in the battle between separate forces, each animal must decide who their true enemy is.
