First I would like to Thank FMB Blog Tours for allowing to read and review an ARC of Savage. I have to say that this book was good. I love the cover and the premise of the story was very good but there was just something missing for me. I am not sure what it is but as I was reading I found myself wandering at times and lord knows anyone who knows me knows I LOVE TO READ anywhere anytime and anyplace. So it bothered me that I was wandering in the beginning. With that being said I will say this LOUD AND CLEAR I DID ENJOY THE BOOK!

In this story we get to meet Chris is an exchange student from Denmark. His father wants him to go to America to study medicine to be a doctor. Chris is not really interested in being a doctor but he doesn't want to upset his father so he goes to America to study medicine.

When he arrives in Florida where he is staying with a very wealthy family he is excited. He decides he is going to go out with a few friends he just met and while out he is attacked by an alligator and killed. Then he is brought back to life by another animal. When Chris wakes up he is not sure why he is still alive or who saved him. All he knows is that he is inexplicably attracted to the house next door. As things start to unfold for Chris he realizes he has supernatural powers and that the neighbor knows more than what she is letting on.

What will happen to Chris? Will he find out what his neighbor is hiding? Will he follow his heart? Will he follow his fathers dreams for him? Come along for a great adventure and see where the wild animals come alive!

“So how much do you know about St. Augustine, Chris?” 

The woman driving gently touched her elegant yellow hair, careful not to mess it up with her colored nails. She spoke with a strong southern accent and was incredibly beautiful for her age, which I guessed was more than twice my age of twenty-two. Her name was Mrs. Kirk. I had just met her at Orlando Airport for the first time a few minutes before. She was waiting for me holding a sign with my name, Christian Langaa, printed on it. 

The year was 1983 and I had recently finished my third year of med school at a university in Denmark. I had just left my country of birth for St. Augustine in Florida. Leaving Denmark was my father’s idea, really. I guess he thought it was about time I left the nest, so he called in a favor with an old friend of his, an American eye surgeon, to take me in and help me get a year at a medical school “over-there.” I can’t say I was unhappy about it. At that time all kids my age wanted to go to the States where stone-washed jeans and Michael Jackson came from. His latest album "Thriller" had just been released and was played on every radio station all over the world. Like so many else I bought the cassette and played it again and again on my Walkman. Where I came from anything that was American was considered hip and cool. That summer before I left, my friends and I had watched the movie Flashdance that made ripped sweatshirts popular and we loved the TV show Dallas and Dynasty that made everybody wear increasingly oversized shoulder pads - even us guys. We drank lots of Coke and dreamt of watching MTV, which at that time wasn’t something you could do in Europe yet and especially not in my small home-country Denmark, where we only had one national channel on our TV.
