Product Details


It’s a dog-eat-dog—and at times human-eat-human—world in Brooks’ stark postapocalyptic novel…The plot hinges on an impending, full-scale attack on the Dau, which Brooks expertly draws out to agonizing tautness. Whether read simply as a survival story or as an exploration of humanity, this ruthless book is both bark and bite.
—Booklist (starred review)

Brooks has created unique characters that convincingly bridge the gap between human and animal thought processes…The unusual figures, the harrowing scenario, and the taut, relentless action sequences combine to produce a story—told without apostrophes, quotation marks, or traditional chapter breaks—that readers will find difficult to put down.
—Publishers Weekly

Grim but ultimately gripping, it’s a compelling post-apocalyptic tale for readers ready to grapple with nihilism and the darker side of what it means to be human.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
