Overview

After a violent attack threatened both the Wild and Leashed Packs, Lucky knows that the dogs' only hope for survival is to unite. The Wild Pack's ruthless Alpha reluctantly agrees to let Bella and the Leashed Dogs join them—but after learning of Lucky's role as a spy, Alpha casts him out and orders him to never return.

Lucky tries to be happy to have his freedom again, but the forest and ruined city are treacherous for a Lone Dog. Food and clean water are scarce, and a poisonous black cloud is spreading across the sky. For the first time since the Big Growl, Lucky is desperate to have other dogs by his side. But it might be too late. . . .

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
What is it like to be part of a dog pack, to discover all the scents and mysteries of the darkening night? One day Lucky finds himself at the center of a dispute between the Wild and Leashed Packs, a conflict that threatens Lucky’s status within the pack. Finally Alpha, the leader of the Wild Pack, relents and allows the Leashed and Wild Dogs to unite. But then Lucky falls out of favor - and becomes the low dog on the totem pole. Soon Lucky is roaming on his own, trying to survive amid the turbulence of the forest where lone dogs often fail to thrive. He wonders if he will ever be part of the pack again - or if he will die in exile. In this exciting volume, Erin Hunter once again draws young readers into the tapestry of a well-crafted saga filled with incredible details and well-depicted characters. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.; Ages 10 to 14.
Booklist
“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.”

Well nope! <p> Listen. I hope you can read well. <p> What I'm about to tell you is important. <p> You ready for it? <p> I hope so. <p> <p> At 'sks', there is a clan entitled Blazeclan. You should join them. They accept all cats without powers, and are one of the oldest clans. Just try them out!
