Tears of the Cheetah Book Review!

Tears of the Cheetah Book Review!


Mackenzie came to South Africa to escape the trauma of her past and build herself a bright new future: love is the last thing on her mind. But she’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore her feelings for the strong-minded Cole, who runs the game reserve for cheetahs just outside her town. Cole has made no secret of his feelings for her, but he realises that Mackenzie cannot be rushed so he is prepared to wait.

However, neither could have predicted the terrifying events that are about to overtake them. When Cole saves Mackenzie from a vicious attack, it is only the beginning of an ever-spiralling maelstrom of violence.

Someone is decimating Africa’s cheetah population, and when the poaching threat comes to their door, Mackenzie and Cole have only one option: they must fight to save the animals and life they love.


This book was really unique right from the prologue. It had me hooked and had a really refreshing writing style to it that was hard to stop reading once you started.

The exploration of animal poaching was a very important issue that was experienced in this book, making it so much better as I have a love for animals and poaching is a very big issue that I believe is underrated in the news and should be looked into more to be fixed.

T.M. Clark created a very unique and beautiful book that hold very vivid images, with a very inspiring and loveable plot that hooks readers from page one. Recommend to those that love animals and romance.

STAR RATING: 4/5 stars

“You’ve misunderstood. It’s not a choice. It’s a destiny.”
When fifteen year old Cate accidentally brings a dead cheerleader back to life her connection to the secretive Timesurfers is revealed. The Timesurfers travel through time and battle the powerful dark forces intent on manipulating history. Cate must discover her powers, choose a side and end a centuries old war


Timesurfers was a unique, fast paced and compelling read with a very quirky and cool main character that has kick ass rainbow coloured hair, if the hair part hasn’t already got you hooked just wait until you hear about the rest.

The storyline was very cool and very different to what I am used to reading, it never had any boring moments in it and the characters were very well portrayed and even had very satisfying humour that keeps you as a reader hooked and ready to hear more of what the characters have to say. Rhonda has a very unique and very quirky and different writing style to other Young Adult authors that is really refreshing and different to other books that I have read before.

Timesurfers was a very face paced book with humour, magic and time travel and something very  new and exciting to the Young Adult genre and the painful wait for book two is going to be very well worth it I’m sure!
