Pax

£6.99

‘Pax‘ is unsparing in fulfilling its purpose of presenting a real ‘coming of age/drawing of truth’ story. ‘Pax‘ is heartbreaking, wonderful and very unsettling. In truth, I cannot find its like in many other works I’ve read.

‘Pax’ has been raised by Peter since he was a cub. When Peter’s father leaves for battle, he determines to separate the two- a lone mutually dependent boy and tamed fox. Their subsequent individual battles, within an obscure battle field setting, are told in turn by each.

Peter and Pax are determined and survive hostile, unknown surroundings, and a brutal reality. Each is forced to rely on the kindness of strangers, and the knowledge of the love of the other. Peter is driven by guilt at leaving Pax and the consequences of running away. Pax is driven by his need for food and the fact he has never hunted for himself, or had to fight for survival.

This is a spare, original, proud book. Bookwagon recommends ‘Pax‘ to mature readers. They will face a raft of emotions as they read this wonderful book, yet feel they have been part of the lives of each Peter and ‘Pax‘.
