All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the impending violence becomes terrifyingly clear.

With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide.

D.L. YAYY. I am excited for this.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
Yay :D I watched the tv series and loved it. And then realised it was a Patterson book. And I love Patterson books (well his YA anyway) so figured it was time to dive into his adult.

The tv show was way better than this. Almost halfway through and nothing much has happened yet.

I'll be reading the little novella soon as well, so I can just get it out of the way. It's only like 200pg.

You should definitely watch the tv show. 2 or 3 seasons out now.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
I legit just found out that there were more seasons out. I thought there was only 1! I loved the first one! Can't wait to watch the next 2 when I get around to it. It was such a good show!


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
Not finishing this one today, I'll be finishing tomorrow. Got another 200pg to go.

I have so many book memberships. kindle unlimited, libby, scribd...etc lol

Sure! I have started and am up to chapter 3.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
Ah right.

Awesome :D T/L? I don't like choosing haha. I'm on for a few hours as well so keep them coming until you want to stop. Any length is fine with me.


message 37: by Rae (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rae Lake | 2199 comments SOOOOOO NOW YOU WANT TO LISTEN!!!!!! ugh!


message 38: by Rae (new) - rated it 5 stars

Rae Lake | 2199 comments I have never done one so not sure how...lol a sprint that is..lol


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
Alright haha I shall explain. So a t/l stands for time/length. The time is what time we both start reading, and the length is the length of time that we read for.

For example: :00 for 20. The ':00' shows that we start reading on the hour, and the 'for 20' means that we read for 20 minutes. So from :00 until :20. And during that time we keep track of how many pages we read.

Rae Lake | 2199 comments ahhhhhhhh gotcha!

soooo :05 for 20 minutes? Hows that?

Yeah that works :D Yay you picked it up so fast haha.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
I should need another 2 sprints to get finished with #1, and who knows when I'll get to #2.

No worries haha. Again? After I finish this book, I need to update, and then shower. How much longer are you on for?

And did you like sprinting?


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
If you did maybe we could do it more often. It's basically the only time I read now.


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 47369 comments Mod
Yay finished the book! So much rage about that last bit!
