Description

The second book in the epic, action-packed second Survivors series from Erin Hunter, #1 nationally bestselling author of Warriors

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.

Darkness has struck at the heart of the Wild Pack. Whisper is dead—and Storm is certain that his wounds could only have been inflicted by another dog. Lucky and her Packmates are reluctant to believe her, but Storm is determined to face the truth: could there be a traitor in their midst? 



About the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. In addition to having great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior. She is also the author of the Seekers, Survivors, and Bravelands series.



Praise For Survivors: The Gathering Darkness #2: Dead of Night

PRAISE FOR SURVIVORS: “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)

“Well-rounded characters, deep folklore and difficult problems without obvious answers drive the story. These dogs are not just loyal human companions, but warriors, leaders and friends. Perfectly crafted.”
— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Young readers will find plenty to like here, from the fast-moving plot, to the characterizations of individual dogs. A promising start for the many fans of the Warriors and Seekers adventure series.”
