Book Description

WINNER OF THE GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S FICTION PRIZE 2014.

Twelve-year-old Kester thought he had discovered the last wild animals in the land. He thought his adventure was over. He was wrong.

Below the sparkling city of Premium, deep underground, a dark wild remains: animals who believe the time is right to rise up against their human enemies.

And soon Kester realises: he is the only one who can stop them.

Kester Jaynes saved the animals. Can he save the humans too?

Review

'An excellent, punchy adventure' Financial Times.

'The definition of a good read' The Bookbag.

'A page-turner' The Telegraph.

'A fantastic example of how a book for children can be serious without preaching ... a sobering parable about our attitude to the natural world' Gillian Cross, author.

'Standout winner ... effortlessly holds his readers' attention' Julia Eccleshare, Guardian.

'Wildly inventive, moving and gripping' Frank Cottrell Boyce.

From the Inside Flap

Twelve-year-old Kester Jaynes thought he had rescued the last wild animals in the land. He thought his adventures was over.
He was wrong.
Below the sparkling city of Premium, deep underground, Kester finds more survivors: a menacing white dog, a cohort of foxes, an interfering starling, and the world's most miserable rat. A dark wild hiding from the deadly virus that destroyed their friends; a dark wild with a dark plan to rise up against their human enemies...
Together with his loyal friend Polly and a brave gang of child outlaws, Kester must find a way to stop them, before it's too late. Kester Jaynes saved the animals. Can he save the humans too?

My son, who isn't the most enthusiastic reader, read the book which preceeds this one 'The Last Wild'. He then waited eagerly for The Dark Wild and has enjoyed it even more. Now he's waiting impatiently for the third book.

I thought the book was really mysterious. It was like a jigsaw puzzle. When one mystery was solved, it just seemed to lead into a new one. Christopher, aged 9
