The storm has passed -- but the adventure has just begun!

Fans of WARRIORS and WOLVES OF THE BEYOND have a new animal adventure series to sink their teeth into!

Shep the German shepherd doesn't know why his family has left him alone, nor does he understand the terrible, shrieking storm that tears apart his city. He just knows that the new pack of dogs he's met are his best chance at survival -- especially now that they've made enemies of the wild dogs in the city. Can Shep keep his new friends safe until his family -- maybe -- returns?

"Curl up with your kibble and savor this incredible story of dogs left behind when a hurricane sweeps through their city. This page-turner follows stalwart Shep and intrepid Callie, who despite her yapper’ size is up to her muzzle in courage, as this extraordinary canine duo braves their new environment and forms a new pack. Dayna Lorentz has delivered a book with bite--and with a great heart."

Kathryn Lasky, author of The Guardians of Ga’Hoole and Wolves of the Beyond
