The Dark Wild


The Last Wild Trilogy: Book 2

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?
