A great evil has risen. A murderer now leads the animals of the plains. As the elephant Sky leads her herd in a desperate search for Bravelands’ rightful leader, the baboon Thorn is forced to flee his old troop, and the lion Fearless, once their friend, is led astray by a tyrant. The balance of Bravelands is about to shatter—unless predator, prey, and scavenger unite as one. As you may have heard, Erin Hunter is actually six people. And one of those six authors is Gillian Philip who writes the Bravelands and Survivors series.
