"The gap between his feet and the fence around the lion enclosure was at least a metre wide. The drop was the height of five men. In the darkness, curving rolls of barbed wire shimmered along the top of the fence, each razor prong waiting to snag and incise. Sammy took a deep breath. He lifted his chin. Rain poured over his face, running into his eyes, blurring his vision. He blinked. Lightning split the sky ahead. The air fizzed and a billion drops were frozen like diamonds in the wintry sky. In the distance a sudden macabre silhouette: his mother, clinging crucifix-like to the wire, three lions reaching up with great sharp claws to drag her down.
Darkness. The thunder cracked like an explosion. He jumped."

The Last Ark is a brilliant read. I simply couldn't put it down. An action packed adventure with a twist in the tail that made me gasp aloud. Ideal for teenagers from 9 to 90! Can't wait for the next Sammy Twice adventure - this story begs a sequel.
Fast, original page-turner
