13 posts | 13 read | 18 to read
First Katherine Applegate thrilled readers with the action-packed Animorphs series. Then she stole our hearts with the award-winning The One and Only Ivan. Now she takes us on an unforgettable journey in this first book of an epic middle grade series! Byx is the youngest member of her dairne pack. Believed to possess remarkable abilities, her mythical doglike species has been hunted to near extinction in the war-torn kingdom of Nedarra. After her pack is hunted down and killed, Byx fears she may be the last of her species. The Endling. So Byx sets out to find safe haven, and to see if the legends of other hidden dairnes are true. Along the way, she meets new alliesboth animals and humans alikewho each have their own motivations for joining her quest. And although they begin as strangers, they become their own kind of familyone that will ultimately uncover a secret that may threaten every creature in their world. Building upon the success of her critically acclaimed novels such as The One and Only Ivan, Crenshaw, and Wishtree, while also returning to her action-packed fantasy roots of Animorphs, the Endling series is Katherine Applegate at her finest. With its enthralling characters, unique setting, and gripping adventure, this series is the perfect next read for fans of Rick Riordan, Brian Jacques, and Tui T. Sutherland.

Targeted by human hunters, dairnes are on the brink of extinction. Byx seems to be the last of her species, but there are legends of others. Can Byx and her newfound friends evade those who threaten them and find out the truth?

This is an engaging story that carried my children and me through a long road trip. And it passes the Bechdel Test! (If you allow for conversations in which one female isn't human.)

This little novel (and a ton of crunchy snacks) helped us through nine hours in the rental car today. We're finishing it up in our jammies in the hotel room.

Crazeedi That's quite a travel day! Good thing you had a book to help pass the time! 4mo
ImperfectCJ @Crazeedi It certainly was a marathon of a road trip! It's the longest I've done in one stretch just me and my kids. Luckily, they're phenomenal road-trippers. :-) 4mo

A fantasy where the humans are destroying everything and everyone...or maybe an alternative reality. Imaginative, adventurous, and quite engrossing.

Mehso-so

I want to say that I heard the audiobook but kind of wished that I would have read the physical copy better. I think I would have enjoyed it better since I heard they include pictures in there. I picked this up because i loved the one and only Ivan and Crenshaw. I loved the characters in this book and i enjoyed the story. I will probably continue with this series but in physical form.

One of my favourite authors. Quite different from her other books as it is darker and more action packed. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was excited to discover it is the first in a series. Looking forward to #2.

CSeydel She is great. 2y
CSeydel I missed the introduction to all these dated posts ... are these books you‘re pre-ordering for the library? Or advance review copies? What‘s the story? I‘m getting excited about some of these! 2y

LibrarianRyan @CSeydel about monthly, I do #CoverLove #MGedition or #YAedition of books with interesting, awesome, and occasionally bad covers. Just new books that look fun to get kids reading. Not ordering for my library because my Gov Docs library doesn't buy kids books. Sometimes they are galleys, but I almost always post them #bookmail. I know I have a nocturnals arc on it's way as an example. 2y
LibrarianRyan @CSeydel I review kids and teen books for publishers and others because I'm a former children's/tween librarian and former library director. I like to help kids and parents find books for their offspring. 2y
CSeydel Nice! Well thanks for sharing these. 2y
