The story takes place in the woods where both rabbits and foxes are civilized creatures, with their own government, attire, and entertainment. In the beginning, both species lived together. However, the rabbits had gone off since the foxes were more like predators and they were the prey.
Years later, a winter storm comes to destroy most of the food supply in the woods. What's the answer in replenishing what was lost? For the fox's government, which is led by a corrupt politician, it would be rabbit. Of course, the foxes haven't preyed on the rabbits for a while now, and doing so would only lead to an all-out war.
Harry, a fox, is elected by his government official brother, Issac, to go survey an area supposedly filled with rabbits. Naïve to what is truly going on in his government, Harry is about to embark on a path full of betrayal, deceit, and corruption.
Quentin, a rabbit, is aware of the problems the rabbit colony is currently facing - mainly, the vanishing of rabbit families. But Quentin is not too fond of the new laws and limits that the rabbit government is starting to apply, and to him the strict army is just pushing it. Wanting to run away from his colony, little does Quentin know that the government was only trying to protect them.
Two characters from two different worlds, set on a path with two different agendas only to discover that there is only one way to finding peace in their colonies.
Told in alternating points of view, A TASTE FOR RABBIT gives us an inside look at corrupt governments, rebels, and a world so imaginative and yet so real that it makes us think it could possibly happen. Fast-paced and action-packed, the story is wonderfully written and easy to read.
The novel aids in showing us that not everything is as it seems and that sometimes we need to take a step back and fully understand the situation in order to assess it.
