Waterstones Says

Set in the aftermath of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, Dogs of the Deadlands is a heartwrenching tale of the bond between humans and animals, and of escaping and being left behind, from the CILIP Carnegie Medal-winning author of The Truth of Things series.

Chernobyl, 1986. The world is coming to an end. Dragged from her bed in the middle of the night and forced to leave her beloved puppy behind, Natasha has no idea if she'll ever return home.

Growing up in the shadow of the ruined nuclear power plant, Misha and Bratan need to learn how to survive - and fast. Creatures with sharp teeth, scythe-like claws and yellow eyes lurk in the overgrown woods. And they're watching the young pups...

But will the dogs survive without humans? And can humans live without them?

A devastating tale of courage, companionship and hope from the Carnegie award-winning author of Lark.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Steeped in Richard Adams' Plague Dogs and Watership Down, yet wearing all the hallmarks of Barry Hines at his finest, Dogs of the Deadlands is a wonderful thing. It moved me and stayed with me for an awfully long time.' - Phil Earle, author of When the Sky Falls

Praise for Anthony McGowan:

'The Carnegie medal winner McGowan is superb at stories about children who do not have all the advantages.' - Sunday Times

'McGowan's prose is beautiful in its brevity and devastating in its emotional impact.' - Bookseller
