MIKE BOND has been called the “master of the existential thriller” by the BBC and “one of the 21st century’s most exciting authors” by the Washington Times. He is a bestselling novelist, environmental activist, international energy expert, war and human rights correspondent and award-winning poet who has lived and worked in many remote and dangerous parts of the world. His critically acclaimed novels depict the innate hunger of the human heart for what is good, the intense joys of love, the terror and fury of battle, the sinister vagaries of international politics and multinational corporations, and the beauty of the vanishing natural world.

Hi Micielle,

Thanks for the note. If you like The Last Savanna, you might like Saving Paradise. If you like straight thrillers, you might like Tibetan Cross or House of Jaguar.
Please keep in touch.

The Drum That Beats Within Us by Mike Bond
"I enjoyed this book of poetry. I especially liked the preface about what poetry is and can mean. I liked best the poems about love and death and the meaning of life. I will be going back to reread the lines that struck me."

“I have spent hours and hours watching elephants, and to come to understand what emotional creatures they are...it's not just a species facing extinction, it's massive individual suffering.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“The breeze across the desert as the light died was so sweet she could almost drink it.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“Long before the stars died the birds began to sing - cool rippling doves, loud cheery starlings, the long lilting trills of warblers and thrushes.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Why in the morning is there so much hope? And in the evening only fatigued”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“The wind from the east over his shoulder carried the tang of drying murram grass and the scents of bitter pungent shrubs, of red earth and brown earth of old scat and stones heating in the midafternoon sun.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“These steel monstrosities screamed night and day, blotted out the starlit skies and Northern Lights with flashing red strobes, slaughtered thousands of bats and entire flocks of birds banished tourism and wildlife, made people sick and drove them from their now-valueless homes.”
Mike Bond, Killing Maine

“The eastern savanna shifted from charcoal to deep purple; to the west a feverish orange moon sank into the Kiambu Hills.”
Mike Bond, The Last Savanna

“Already this sun was pouring its wrath into the blue Indian ocean where swordfish and marlin cruised like silver-blue attenuated warheads in their green-gold depths...”
