Praise For 04 Shark Seas (The Falcon Chronicles)

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

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

The story is full of action, and it made me want to read the other novels in the series—Annabel Moat, aged 9, National Geographic Kids

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

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

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
