Excerpt from Amber

“Do Asiatic lions have prides just like their African cousins? 

No. We have families.

“Drink,” her naani passed her a plastic cup filled with cold water. “Our human bodies are surprisingly fragile.”

Oh, she knew the difference. Asiatic lions were smaller than their African cousins. But they too had become rare, isolated. Existing in small groups, outnumbered by the harimau. The tigers were proud of their heritage and birth-right, comfortable and secure in their own land. The lions kept to themselves. But it didn’t mean that they were less proud of their bloodline.

Soon, she would lead her family.
