Author: Kimberli A. Bindschatel
Genre: Adventure, Thriller
Bravo! That’s the first sentiment that comes to mind after reading the newest installment in the Poppy McVie series focusing on the title characters adventures as an animal protection agent.
This outing tells the story of Poppy and her partner Agent Dalton’s mission to catch a poacher hunting bears under the guise of a legal hunting lodge in the Alaskan wilderness. The descriptions of this area are next to none, with the beautiful writing driving home the underlying message about the importance of conversation.
“Glacier-covered peaks along the shoreline, dotted with alpine lakes, offered streams that meandered downward, through the patchwork of green, toward the satiny blue sea. Beautiful, untouched, the way it was meant to be. Alaska was truly the last frontier. I held my breath, taking it in.”
Upon embarking on the hunting trip, Poppy comes face to face with dangers posed by both nature and humans themselves. The suspense in the wilderness scenes had me reading voraciously to discover what would take place next. Whether you agree with hunting or not, Ms. Bindschatel’s fact-based books will make you evaluate your views regardless without being preachy.
An absolutely wonderful addition to the series, watch out for the next book Operation Turtle Beach, coming soon.
Rating: 5/5 vistas of Alaskan wilderness
