Book Description

Another gripping adventure of the animals of Farthing Wood, by award-winning author Colin Dann

From the Back Cover

'It's horrible, just waiting around for this... this something to make an appearance.'

Terror has come to White Deer Park, driving panic-striken animals before it. A killer beast is on the loose - a predator so silent and skilful that it leaves almost no trace, and had never been seen.

As the deaths mount up, Owl, Fox, Badger and the elders of the animals of Farthing Wood meet to make a plan. They have survived so many threats before, but have they finally met their match?

Another gripping adventure of the animals of Farthing Wood by award-winning author Colin Dann.

What a set of books - love the Animals of Farthing Wood books. Would love to get the whole set in book format, but very happy to have them all on my Kindle. It would be great to be able to give my family a set of these books.

The fifth Animals of Farthing Wood book kicks off without preamble, introducing a deadly new addition to White Deer Park. The Farthing Wood refugees are now older and less hardy than the days of their now legendary travels, and many of the smaller, short-lived creatures have sadly perished. When the silent, invisible predator begins to threaten their well-being, even the leader Fox suggests that maybe they should remain in their corner of the park and leave the Beast to its own devices. Soon however the undetectable intruder beings to lay siege on all the inhabitants of the park, including the White Deer themselves, and the animals must decide to either make their move or become paralysed with fear.

Dann's sparse writing style gives a great edge to the narrative, providing a succinct series of images to each of the scenes and lend every character a solid description that allows the story to flow visually in the reader's mind. At times he loses some of the grace that he established in earlier volumes of the series and approaches a kind of dry, clear text that whilst skilful and clear, doesn't serve the story as well as it might have.

Similarly the wily predator suffers from distinct lack of character, serving more as a presence that affects the others, its absence its only true character. I won't give any story details away, but there are occasions when more could be made of the Beast as an individual character, and as a book of only 150 or so pages, about 25 less than most of the others, there is certainly room for this.

These are only minor problems in a manuscript that has all the charm and character of the previous instalments. The development of the older Farthing Wood characters - Badger and Adder in particular - is superb, compelling and even emotive.

This book is the only book to not have been a part of the television show (not counting the prequel) due to it apparently being viewed as too scary and harrowing for children. Personally I felt they could've made it work, but I digress. This book is superb with the suspense and fear it brings. With the last book concentrating on Bold outside of the park this time we're back with the whole bunch of animals at White Deer Park as they take center stage. Sadly though some of the animals like Kestrel and Hare have either died or moved away in the time between.

A mysterious Beast is loose in the park and it is killing animals at an alarming rate. Yet despite it being around day after day not one single animal has been able to see it. The Beast is stealthy and Fox and the gang, as well as the Warden, are at a loss as to what to do to solve the problem. Friendly and the younger foxes try to track it, Whistler and Owl manage to see it, and Adder even comes face to face with it! Adder also meets another snake, a great new character called Sinuous!

This book really does keep you hooked and the mystery of what the Beast is and why it's there has you turning page after page to find out. Unfortunately the ending and lack of definitive answers is a disappointment and it's what makes it one of the weaker books in the series. However, it is still a great book and absolutely worth reading.
