Sequel to Tigerland
Young Australian Micah Johnson is the first AFL player to be out at the beginning of his career. Retired professional football player Declan Tyler mentors Micah, but he finds it difficult, as Micah is prone to making poor life choices that land him in trouble. Nothing Dec can’t handle. He’s been there, done that, more times than he’d like to admit. Being Simon Murray’s partner all these years has Dec quite experienced in long-suffering and mishaps.
As usual, Simon thinks everything is going along just fine until his assistant, Coby, tells him a secret involving an old nemesis. Simon and Dec’s problems mash together, and to solve them, they must undertake a thousand-kilometer round trip in which issues will have to be sorted out, apologies are finally given, and a runaway kid is retrieved and returned to his worried parents.
Let me start off by saying that I highly recommend you read the first two books in the Tigers & Devils series before attempting Tigers on the Run. While it is a full story in and of itself, it involves a host of characters with a lot of backstory that you will miss without reading the first two books.
Tigers on the Run is once again told from the first person point of view of one Simon Murray (as are books one and two). Simon is a sarcastic little shit, and if you don’t like him in Tigers & Devils, you aren’t going to like him in this one. If, however, like me you love the chemistry and banter between Simon, Dec, Fan, Roger, Abe, and Lisa, then you are in for a treat.
Tigers on the Run is a look at where Simon and Dec’s life has taken them eight years into their relationship (which is about two years after the end of Tigerland). In Run, they both have to grow up and be real people. They have weathered two very public storms together. This time, they must weather a more personal storm. The dynamics of their group is changing. It isn’t all for the better. However, it is still Simon and Dec against the world.
There are not any heart-tugging moments in Run. However, there is enough conflict to keep me turning the pages. Also be sure to read to the last word, because Mr. Kennedy I think we need Tigers & Devils book Four ASAP.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
