But when Anna defies her father's wishes and secretly raises a young colt alongside her pet tiger cub, her actions will have far-reaching consequences. And soon Anna, her tiger and her horse will be fighting for survival in the frozen tundra of Siberia....

Great For Horse Lovers

I mostly enjoyed this book as my first on Audible for a number of reasons. I would highly recommend this book to adventure seekers and horse lovers. At the beginning, I found the book a bit confusing and not that good, but I continued and found that the real adventures and excitement is from the middle of the book to the end. The characters are very different from each other, which enriches the story with their complicated relationships and personalities. I would say that I would recommend the book to slightly older children, around 12+, though. This is because it was a bit confusing at the beginning and I needed several pieces of context to understand it. I found out that it contained a small amount of fantasy, but it was mostly realistic fictions. I thought the narrator was a bit hard to understand in the beginning, but I became to understand her more throughout the book. Again, I highly recommend this book to people who love horses.
