Winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Book Award 2014.    In The Dark Wild, Kester, a twelve year old with a rare gift for understanding animals, thought he had saved the animals from his cruel world where nature has been all but destroyed. But now, buried deep under the bright, shiny and newly built city of Premium, Kester finds a new animal kingdom. Down in their dark wild, these animals are not looking to be loved or cherished by humans, they are looking for revenge. They are poised to bring wholesale destruction unless someone can stop them. Kester loves animals and is sympathetic to them but whatever the wrongs caused by his fellow humans he knows he must do everything he can to prevent this all-out disaster.

Guardian Children's Fiction Book Award Judge Katherine Rundell was wowed by: “an adventure boldly imagined and brilliantly executed: full of suspense without ever sacrificing warmth and wit.”

I would recommend this to any 9-12 year olds, especially if you love sci-fi or adventure. This is a must - read!

This fab book was all about a 12 year old boy who can talk to animals and who is trying to save the world from mass extinction.
Though a bit scary at times, I loved it. The author described everything so well that when the characters felt happy or sad, so did I!
This book is part of an awesome trilogy, and in my opinion, you have to read it in order to get the most out of it.
