Overview

The heart-pounding conclusion to the DOGS OF THE DROWNED CITY trilogy brings the dogs home -- but can they go back to being pets?

Shep and his pack have survived a terrible storm and fought off a pack of vicious wild dogs. Now the dog pack must face their greatest challenge yet: finding their way back to their families.

Now that the humans have returned to the city, Shep knows he wants to find his boy. But there are so many other dogs to help, and so many dangers along the way. Worst of all is Shep's fear -- now that he's learned to live Outside, will he be able to find happiness again as a pet?

"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

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greta Holt
Shep, the alpha dog in a survival pack of pets that has been roaming the area after a great storm, is exhausted. But when pack members, who have been through the storm, starvation, and wild dog attacks, want to find their families, Shep resists. How can they give up this freedom for a leash and confinement? Sure, they love their human families, and it would be inexpressibly wonderful to have consistent feedings again, but do they really want to go back to eating dry kibble, when they have been eating fresh kills? Shep would rather free his friend Callie from the dog catchers than try to find home. The rescued Callie advises Shep that, "Life isn't about freedom; it's about choosing what you want to be free from." Much has happened on the road, and when the betrayer Zeus, a bulldog who earlier led the pets into a wild dog attack, comes back wanting to join them, Shep must be particularly careful. Pumpkin, a poodle/shih tzu, knows where the humans might be. The pack sets out to find them. Fuzz, the wise and faithful cat, scouts ahead. Along the way they encounter broken bridges and swollen water, more wild dogs, and dog catchers. Shep takes care of the injured Zeus, because he reasons that that is what alphas should do. At the end of their journey, the remaining dogs: Oscar, the optimistic pup, Daisy, Ginny, Boji, Rufus, and the rest do find their human families. Shep does reconnect with his young owner. The Great Wolf has seen them through, and Shep is amazed at how much he has missed his family. Lorentz does not overreach for adventure in this final book of the series. She ties up the loose ends, philosophizes a bit, and brings the adventure to a realistic conclusion. Readers who have read the first two books will be comfortable with the dialogue tags, such as "woofed" and "growled," and the anthropomorphism inherent in this type of story. Book three in the "Dogs of the Drowned City" series. Reviewer: Greta Holt
