Description

The time has come for dogs to rule the wild! Discover another action-packed animal fantasy series from the #1 nationally bestselling author of Warriors

The first book in the Survivors series is full of "wild and wonderful adventure" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) that will thrill fans of Spirit Animals and Wings of Fire.

Lucky has always been a Lone Dog, roaming the busy city streets and relying on his instincts. Then the Big Growl strikes--a devastating earthquake that changes Lucky's world forever. For the first time, he must team up with a Pack, a group of former Leashed Dogs who have been separated from their owners.

Lucky's vivid point of view and the pulse-pounding action make for the start of an addictive series that shows readers the world through the eyes of dogs.

Back cover copy

Lucky is a golden-haired mutt with a nose for survival. He has always been a Lone Dog, relying on his instincts to get by. Other dogs have Packs, but Lucky stands alone.

Then the Big Growl strikes. Suddenly, the ground is split wide open. The Trap House is destroyed. And all the longpaws have disappeared.

Now Lucky is trapped in a strange and desolate new world with no food, foul water, and enemies at every turn. He falls in with others left behind, including his littermate Bella, a Leashed Dog. Relying on other dogs--and having them depend on him--brings new dangers that Lucky isn't prepared for, but he may not be able to survive on his own. Can Lucky ever be a true Pack Dog?

"Hunter expertly explores the tensions between responsibility and freedom; risk and safety; and loyalty and acceptance. Viewing the unfolding adventure through Lucky's eyes makes even the most mundane or familiar seem alive with magic. Wild and wonderful adventure for middle-graders." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
