—HelloGiggles

“The premise of this novel will send chills down the spine of any parent—and keep them turning pages into the wee hours.”
Newsday

Fierce Kingdom is gripping and almost impossible to put down.”
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


“Because we make fun of helicopter parents for the lengths they go to to keep perfectly safe children even safer, we can can forget that, for children, safety is a kind of love—and that makes Fierce Kingdom a terrifying book, but more importantly, a beautiful one.”
—NPR

“By introducing the threat of violence, the book amplifies everyday domestic concerns, producing a kind of crystallization of the experience of parenthood.”
—The New Yorker

BookPage

—Washington Independent Review of Books

“This heroine proves that a mom protecting her son is indisputably the fiercest creature in the animal world.”
RedBook

Fierce Kingdom is a novel that crackles with tension and danger. . . . Do yourself a favor and devour this book before the inevitable movie premiere.”
—New York Journal of Books

“This adrenaline-fueled thriller shows the animal instinct of one mother's love and the ferocity with which she fights to protect her son.”
—Read it Forward

“It tore at every maternal fiber in my body. I couldn’t put it down.” 
—Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Widow

Fierce Kingdom is a bold exploration of the ferocity of a mother’s love—riveting and beautiful, and all too real. You’ll find yourself asking, what would I do? It’s brilliant.”
—Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

“I devoured it in one breathless sitting. Outstanding.”
—Clare Mackintosh, New York Times bestselling author of I Let You Go

“This is an elegant, taut, and tense survival story that explores the boundaries of parental love. By pitting love against fear, Gin Phillips questions the opposing forces of family bonds and shows how fierce one mother’s love can be.”
 —Claire Cameron, author of The Last Neanderthal and The Bear
 
“I loved this book not only as a mother, but as a woman—and a feminist—living in a world teeming with pressing domestic details along with unpredictable, casual violence.”
 —Susanna Daniel, award-winning author of Sea Creatures

“Phillips’ characters are exquisitely rendered, her prose is artful and evocative . . . Poignant and profound, this adrenaline-fueled thriller will shatter readers like a bullet through bone.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“A searing exploration of motherhood at its most basic.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Phillips manages to combine beautiful imagery with heart-pounding, nerve-fraying intensity. . . . Fans of literary page-turners, like Sunil Yapa’s Your Heart Is a Muscle the Size of a Fist, won’t want to miss this.”
Booklist (starred review)

Fierce Kingdom is stunning and extraordinary; keep the defibrillator handy.”
—Shelf Awareness (starred review)
