Overview

Un thriller electrizante sobre la relación única e indestructible que une a una madre con su hijo. Y sobre lo que sería capaz de hacer para protegerlo.

«Inteligente e irresistible.»

The New York Times

Lincoln es un buen niño. Con cuatro años es curioso, inteligente y bien educado.

Hace lo que su madre le dice y sigue las normas.

«Hoy las reglas son distintas.

Y las reglas dicen que nos escondamos

y no permitamos que el hombre del arma

nos encuentre.»

Cuando un día feliz en el zoo se convierte en una pesadilla y Joan se ve atrapada con su hijo, deberá hacer acopio de todas sus fuerzas y encontrar el coraje para protegerlo a cualquier precio; incluso si eso significa cruzar la línea entre el bien y el mal, entre la humanidad y el instinto animal. Una línea que nadie imaginaría nunca traspasar.

Pero, a veces, las normas son diferentes.
«Reino de fieras funciona impecablemente como un thriller con un ritmo excelente y un final bien calculado, pero su característica más llamativa es el retrato que hace de la maternidad.»
The Sunday Times

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

“Warning: you'll finish this in one sitting.” —TheSkimm 

“Expertly made thriller . . . clever and irresistible.” —The New York Times

An electrifying novel about the primal and unyielding bond between a mother and her son, and the lengths she’ll go to protect him.

The zoo is nearly empty as Joan and her four-year-old son soak up the last few moments of playtime. They are happy, and the day has been close to perfect. But what Joan sees as she hustles her son toward the exit gate minutes before closing time sends her sprinting back into the zoo, her child in her arms. And for the next three hours—the entire scope of the novel—she keeps on running.

Joan’s intimate knowledge of her son and of the zoo itself—the hidden pathways and under-renovation exhibits, the best spots on the carousel and overstocked snack machines—is all that keeps them a step ahead of danger.

A masterful thrill ride and an exploration of motherhood itself—from its tender moments of grace to its savage power—Fierce Kingdom asks where the boundary is between our animal instinct to survive and our human duty to protect one another. For whom should a mother risk her life?
