Staff Reviews


Millions of year in the future, super-evolved felines rule the Earth.  This is a classic story with an original twist.  While Leo fights over the throne with his cousin Tamir, he realizes there's something more to the world than what he was old.  The author's description of the fiery combat and breathtaking terrain makes the story fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.  I can't wait for the next book in the Pride Wars series.

— From Sawyer, Age 9

Description


I am Leo, Prince of Singara, and I am about to die. . .
 
Prince Leo is next in line for the throne of Singara, a land ruled by super-evolved felines. Like every thirteen-year-old, Leo must prove his worth by hunting a deadly beast called a slaycon. But killing a slaycon is the least of Leo’s problems. The enemy beyond the Great Wall is rising up. Inside the wall, Singara is being torn apart by Leo’s rebellious cousin. Worst of all, Leo is a Spinner, cursed with a dangerous and forbidden power he can’t control.

The future of Singara is in Leo’s hands. Can he conceal his curse, claim the throne, and protect his realm? Or will he embrace his power and discover a far greater destiny . . . for himself and for his world?

An unforgettable adventure, this first book in the Pride Wars series by debut author Matt Laney introduces a world where honor and duty, ferocity and faith, are tested by an unexpected hero.
