“K’wan, one of this generation’s most talented writers delivers one of his bloodiest stories yet. ANIMAL follows the infamous fugitive from K’wan’s best-known Hood Rat series on a revenge mission from the rugged streets of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico to the scene of the scene of the original crime – Harlem, N.Y.”

One bullet changed everything. 

Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime, Harlem, NY.

Throughout his entire time in exile the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci. But one bullet changed everything.

When his enemies tried to murder Gucci they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all. While Gucci teeters between life and death Animal sets out on a bloody mission fueled by love and orchestrated by bullets…there would be no more innocents.

Alliances are formed and secrets uncovered while Animal wages his personal war on the streets of Harlem only to discover one great truth….he is but a small piece in a much greater puzzle.

    Hello Kwan. I am a huge fan and I have read most of your books. I thought I was caught up on the whole Hood Rat series, I’ve read everything up to Animal 2, but I’m now reading the 1st and the 15th and I’m confused. I know that it’s a prequel to another book, but am I going in the correct order? I know that there is a prequel to Animal 3, with Ghetto Bastard, but does that book fall behind the 1st and the 15th, and where does the The Leak and The Fix come in at? Is it possible for you to put out a list of all your books in order as they were released, b/c I tried looking and some websites have release dates of 2014 for books I know you wrote years earlier…smh lol.

    I stumbled on your books by freak accident. There was a title that stuck to to me and it was “Welfare Wifey” and I was soooo hooked on the whole character line from there I’ve just kept reading from there. I’m reading Animal ll, I love Tayshawn and Lil Ashanti lol

    I think the Animal series is absolutely amazing. I have read 1,2,3, and seen previews of ghetto Bastard and Black Lotus and cannot wait to read them as well. Just saw the cover of Animal 4, and October cannot come fast enough. I’ve read a lot of urban fiction over the years and nothing, and I do mean NOTHING compares to the depth, and creativity of Animal. I don t know how you came up with this idea but Thank You for not just writing about sex and drugs. I truly hope that making this series into a movie, even if just for television is being thought about cause I think it would be a amazing thing to do, you don’t even need a all-star cast just actors who can understand the raw emotion and depth of the story. I’m in love with Animal and I Thank you for writing this series.
