When I finished the previous Bear Grylls book
Rage Of The Rhino I couldn't wait until Lair of the
Leopard arrived, and let me just say it didn't disappoint.
Once again we meet Beck Granger, the orphaned child pursuing one goal; to
save the world from evil corporations poisoning it. When we last saw Beck he was declared
dead, and the LUMOS Corporation forgot all about him. Little did they know, he was
climbing across the Nepalese mountains to take them down once and for all.
Bears Grylls has proved again and again that he can survive the wild. Now
he has proven he can write a good book too! Bear writes a story with description; the
anxiety of the characters' problems makes the books addictive and you will be unable to
put one down once you start reading. Bear's knowledge of the wild is immeasurable, and he
incorporates this into his books as much as he can. When the characters face a problem,
it's almost always life-threatening, and as they get weaker in their journeys the pressure
grows on anyone reading, giving it a sense of reality unforgettable to the reader.
This book is amazing, Bear Grylls should be proud of the work he produced.
I should mention that this is a series, and it is a series that must be read in order. But
that isn't a problem, all nine books are brilliant, and they eventually reach a climax
sure to fill you with joy. This book, and all other Bear Grylls books, is stupendous, and
I greatly recommend reading this series.
