“The rules are different today. The rules are that we hide and do not let the man with the gun find us.”
Published in 2018, Fierce by Gin Phillips follows a mother and her curious and clever four-year-old son, Lincoln, on a day trip to the zoo. But what starts off as an ordinary day soon turns into a nightmare when Joan and Lincoln find themselves trapped after a gunman enters the zoo. Now, Joan must summon all her strength and courage to protect Lincoln at all costs – even if it means crossing the line between right and wrong; between humanity and animal instinct.
