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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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?

This is a great book for imaginative animal lovers. We had to get this sequel after my son enjoyed 'The Last Wild' so much.

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.

A great adventure to read, really entertaining and absorbing.

Would recommend this to anyone with creativity.
Was really interesting.
Could be slightly less... Dramatic, is the only word for it. I think it needs to be slightly less teenagery.
