Daniel and the Lions by Walter Golding
A scary euphoric sensation surged through Daniel, emerging in the form of a nasty smirk. "Get to kill somebody today."
Daniel and the Lions is not a Bible story. A Fantasy Novel in current times, fourteen year old Daniel has endured torture. His mother is a trained killer, and his only friends are a pair of orphaned mountain lions. Daniel is not evil, but he is cold, calculating, and prepared to kill, again. Emotionally suppressed, he is withdrawn. Daniel didn’t ask to spend the last five years running, but here he is hiding in western Wyoming with his mother. Extraordinary abilities have made survival possible, but there are those who hunt him wanting him dead. They will not stop. Circumstances are changing, Daniel is changing, and the hunted are about to become the hunters.
