Down-and-out journalist, Trevor, is used to getting by on the misfortune of others. He enthusiastically accepts an invitation from a beautiful television producer to ghost-write an autobiography for the intrepid but unfortunate animal-tracker, Chuck Collins, as he goes in search of endangered species to save from oblivion.
Problem is, Collins is a disaster-magnet. Animals hate him. They can’t wait to tear him apart. Dogged by the epic failure of his safari amusement park, he badly needs to resurrect his career before self-loathing consumes him.
Trevor colludes with the producer to get Collins on the trail of vicious animals in peril in the hope that something catastrophic will get caught on camera and boost ratings. Reality exceeds expectation, however, when the hapless crew are caught in a cross-fire on their first expedition. Heavily armed poachers appear to be kidnapping exotic and dangerous animals for sport.
“My name is Chuck Collins and I’m on a mission from Gaia.”
Inspired by a higher calling, Collins leads his crew across the globe to scupper the poacher’s plans, but ends up uncovering a far bigger conspiracy to save the planet by nefarious means.
Endangered Species is an action-adventure, comedy series that explores our most pressing ecological disasters. Ignore at your peril!
"Crass, perverse, and absolutely one of the most hilarious, engaging reads I've come across. Kamish has a natural knack for pacing and characterization, and his writing is both articulate and relentlessly snarky."
"Are you missing Terry Pratchett since his unfortunate health challenges have slowed the wonderful stream of Discworld Novels? Well you might enjoy Endangered Species by Vaulte Kamish with a similar mixture of off-beat humor, unreality, and topical satire."
"I really enjoyed this book. It makes a point about both endangered animals and the 99% in an engaging and humorous story. I look forward to book 2 of the series."
"Vaulte Kamish creates this new world order where we are looking at our future in slow motion. Where money controls the world and more importantly the underworld controls our lives without us really knowing it."
"The title put it up higher on my 'must read' list, the writing kept me engaged! I found it humorous, seat gripping, entertaining, and it makes you think, all rolled into one! I really like how it brought up environmental issues from a totally different angle than most people see them. Definitely recommend to anyone!"
"The insight into current day social, political, and economic, realities that are brought out through clever prose and black humour is so utterly believable (even when the unbelievable is described) because of its relevance to modern society. This could only have been written by an educated, thoughtful, cosmopolitan writer who understands and challenges the underlying causes and forces that drive the world today."
"Addressing an important, worldwide problem with sick and off-the-wall humor makes for an entertaining but thought-provoking reading experience. "Diary of an Eco-Warrior" carries you along a twisting trail with smart characterization, unexpected turns and some truly strange events. It's anything BUT another dull, scientific treatment of the endangered species condition."
"I love books that stretch the imagination. Extremely interesting premise as all as an original way of bringing together environmental concerns and great world chiefs. Sounds crazy but it works while slipping in humor when needed."
