When the pack of increasingly feral pet dogs led by his sister clashes with a fiercer pack led by a wolf, Lucky’s loyalty trumps his longing for independence, and he returns to help his friends. Later, falling in with his sister’s plan by infiltrating the fiercer group, he learns a good deal about how packs of wolves and dogs function in the wild. His growing duplicity makes him miserable, though, and a double cross leaves him vulnerable. In the end, his life is, literally, at the mercy of the wolf. Written in third person from Lucky’s point of view, the story reflects his interest in how the pack’s rules and pecking order play out, as well as his drive to be on his own. Sensory details bring his experiences into sharper focus and create a greater feeling of reality within the scenes. The abrupt cliff-hanger at the book’s end may leave avid fans eager for the third installment of the Survivors series, but many readers will be jarred by the lack of a satisfying conclusion here. Grades 4-6. --Carolyn Phelan
“Well-rounded characters, deep folklore and difficult problems without obvious answers drive the story. These dogs are not just loyal human companions, but warriors, leaders and friends. Perfectly crafted.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
PRAISE FOR SURVIVORS: “Hunter expertly explores the tensions between responsibility and freedom; risk and safety; and loyalty and acceptance. Viewing the unfolding adventure through Lucky’s eyes makes even the most mundane or familiar seem alive with magic. Wild and wonderful adventure for middle-graders.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

The book starts with Lucky hearing a battle. If you recall from the first book Lucky left the leashes dogs to be on his own. He runs back to help his friends. The dogs are fighting a wild pack. The alpha of the wild pack is a half wolf/dog. The alpha kills Alphie. One of the tremors of the big growl hits and the dogs run away. Lucky finds Sweet trapped in a hole and saves her. He finds out she is the beta(second in command) of the wild pack.
Bella makes Lucky spy on the wild pack by joining them. Lucky becomes a patrol dog for the pack. He becomes closer to the pack despite the fact he is a spy. He challenged a dog to a fight to become a hunter(that is a better position than a patrol dog). Lucky wins. The omega(Whine) finds out that Lucky is a spy and threatens him. Lucky is forced to frame a dog of a horrible crime so that dog will become omega. Lucky frames a dog named Mulch of eating before told (it is a worse crime than it sounds). Mulch becomes omega. Bella attacks the wild pack with foxes to help her. She lied to Lucky after he risked his life for her!! As the packs are fighting the foxes try to kill Moon's (a mother dog for the wild pack) pups. Lucky tries to fight them off but gets seriously injured. Mulch and another pup named Fuzz die. The foxes are defeated and both the packs gather around. Whine tells everyone that Lucky is a spy. It ends with these words. "Perhaps it was only time to die."
