Daniel D. Shields was born and raised in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Now residing in the beautiful high desert of the American Southwest, he enjoys travel, adventure, and spending time with his Yorkshire terrier, Charlie.
Shields is the co-founder of LiquidWick Pool Cues, famous for it's revolutionary LiquidWick True Stick, and uses his passion for billiards as an imaginative backdrop for his fantastical adventure story, Shark & The Wolf: Predators and Prey.Shields resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
In Las Vegas, Shaw, billionaire casino magnate and self proclaimed world's greatest showman, nears completion on the massive Serengeti Resort & Casino. Its amphitheater is being transformed into an authentic slice of African savanna for the show Predators and Prey which will savagely pit animal against animal in the bloodiest gladiatorial spectacle ever created for human entertainment. The only thing missing is the main attraction - which Shaw soon finds in Shark, the world's only Great White pool-playing shark to be exact.
Shaw envisions the show's tagline as “Come One – Come All To See – The Only Great White Shark In Captivity” but soon learns that capturing the world’s top predator and delivering him to Vegas is easier said than done. This daunting task will require the cruel tactics of the evil animal slave trading hyena, Old Jack. The heartbreaking plans they devise and innocent pawns they use to try to coerce Shark’s allegiance will force all to rely on primitive instincts to survive.
I seriously don't know how to review this book.For me it was a different experience reading this book.This is my first time reading this kind of book.
Shark and the wolf is a great mixture of both fun and mystery where only in this book the villains are the humans to the animals.I think the author loves animals so much that is why he has made main characters such as Shark, wolf, Dog Z Boy, foxie Vixen, etc.I felt like the first few pages were little boring and also had few issues like for example, the abnormal love between the animals.But i was totally able to drop this as it could spoil me reading the book entirely.Despite that it was a fun experience reading the book.
I liked Shark and Vixen as a couple.When Old Jack beat Vixen so badly, I sympathized for her and Shark.But I also hated Vixen so much in the first place as it was all her mistake and stupidity that led to their friends captivation by Old Jack and Shaw.But I loved the way the author has let his imagination flow throughout the book.
After reading this book I got the full satisfaction of watching a good animation movie.The ending was very cute with deceased Dog z boy's three pups playing with Shark.
Finally, I have to thank the author for two things-
First -for giving me a signed paperback copy
Second-for taking me to a different world set around animals.
My rating 4/5
