The Last Wild #2: The Dark Wild

We’re loving Piers Torday’s voice right now: like John Boyne with talking animals. The world’s lost creatures want revenge on the humans who betrayed them. The Dark Wild is rising… Twelve-year-old Kester thought he had found the last wild animals. He thought his adventure was over. He was wrong. Below the sparkling city of Premium, deep underground, a dark wild remains. These animals believe the time is right to rise up against their human enemies. Only Kester can stop them. He saved the animals. Can he save the humans too?
