GRIPPING & ORIGINAL. A BOOK FOR THE WHOLE FAMILYThe award-winning creator and screenwriter of ground-breaking BBC television show, Spirit Warriors starring Jessica Henwick (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Games of Thrones, Iron Fist) brings you an action packed thrill-ride in her debut novel which will engage and excite fans of Maximum Ride, Dean Koontz's Watchers and The Last of Us
It's so easy to take things for granted. Take, for example, trees.
Oaks provide shade and plenty of foliage to protect against sudden showers and prying eyes, but there was also the added bonus of load-bearing lower branches that someone nimble could scramble onto should trouble come calling... and you should know, trouble had me on speed-dial.
Living on the streets wasn't a walk in the park, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home, and after some eight months of being on my own, I'd gotten my routine down to a fine art when one day I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my
life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.
We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn. The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would've been the end of our story if we hadn't been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully's clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.
So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?
Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe - even if it meant risking my own life.WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Jo Ho seems to have the innate ability to make every word breathe to life on the page. This book is inspirational along with a good amount of mystery, adventure and excitement. It is a book for all ages from young adult to mature and youthful grandmothers like me who can discard disbelief and go along for a surprising ride (and a "clean" one at that - no cussing, sex play or gore)." - KRM, Amazon Reviewer.
