The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a rollercoaster adventure of good and evil with a central character that you’ll empathise with immediately. An original and page turning thriller that’s a must for the teenage market. It is a powerful and thought-provoking novel combining elements of the plot of Lord of the Flies, with the pacy story-telling of Michael Crichton and the evolutionary theories of Richard Dawkins. The result is a compelling tale with a strong message about saving our planet.

Synopsis

The Rule Of Claw by John Brindley

A move away from the effervescent over-the-top world of Amy Peppercorn, this is a powerful stand-alone novel in the best tradition of thrillers. We enter a futuristic world and meet a band of sixteen year olds who were dumped in isolation at an early age. They're educated partly by gleaning facts from the few books in their possession, but primarily through their experiences of survival which features death and danger. A new threat emerges when the teens transcend their own rules and eat animal flesh. Ash is kidnapped and becomes a pawn in the power struggles between the formidable raptors. In these beautiful beasts, she glimpses new forms of evolution which make her consider her own humanity. Soon she learns the frightening truth of their origins. And realizes the dangerous implications for herself and her friends.

Reviews

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
