The Boy with the Tiger’s Heart by Linda Coggin

21396276How did I get the book? Received from publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Genre: Fantasy / Adventure

Synopsis: A girl raised in the wild, a desperate race for freedom and a boy with a fiercely guarded secret…

When Nona’s guardian kills himself, she is immediately suspected of murdering him. In a world where nature and darkness are feared, where wild animals are killed or held captive and cities are illuminated by permanent light, who will believe her innocence? Nona must flee with her only friend – a bear who is strangely human.

In their desperate attempt to escape capture, Nona and her bear encounter two strange boys, Caius and Jay. Together, the four of them will hide, and fight, and make the deadliest of enemies in their desperate race to a forbidden place called The Edge – where nature is unrestrained, where there is light and shade, forest and mountain, and where there are no shackles or boundaries.

A poetic, haunting and unforgettable modern fable about nature, society, and what it is that makes us human.

Mini review: I call this a warm-blanket-book. It’s a book that you want to read snuggled up somewhere comfortable, undisturbed, so you can enjoy it without interruption.

Beautifully written Nona’s world comes alive around you. I could picture her, Abel Dancer and the new friends she makes perfectly. The contrast between the town and the wild is striking, the town being by far more heart-breaking. The safari and Jay’s home in particular.

I loved Nona’s journey. Linda Coggin has created a character that you feel a strong connection with early one, this on intensifies as the story progresses.

The Boy with the Tiger’s Heart was the beautiful book I hoped it would be.
