Booklist - 08/01/2012 The first book in the new Hunter series, Survivors, begins with a literally earthshaking event that splits the ground and topples houses. A captive dog named Lucky feels his cage tremble just before the building he calls “the Trap House” collapses around him. A loner and a survivor, he escapes through the strangely empty city. In a mall, he finds his sister and her neighbors, an assortment of pet dogs, now abandoned and helpless. Attempting to teach them to hunt and to protect themselves, Lucky becomes the reluctant leader of a hapless pack. Young readers will find plenty to like here, from the fast-moving plot to the characterizations of individual dogs. Told in third person, this is Lucky’s story all the way, and outside events are described as he perceives them. As in the earlier series, some terms (longpaws = “people”) reflect this perspective. A promising new start for the many fans of the Warriors and Seekers adventure series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The massive success of the Warriors series (11 million books sold) ensures a fan following who will want to see Hunter go to the dogs. - Copyright 2012 Booklist.
