Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

★ “Fantasy lovers are in for a treat with this smartly paced, enthralling adventure.

(starred review)

Praise for Endling #2: ★ “Themes of conservation, war, and human trafficking are skillfully interwoven into a world of magic and wonder. This second installment will have readers salivating for a third. Simply sublime.” --
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The first book in a new series, this volume will whet readers’ appetites for more of Byx’s fascinating world and the next stage of her quest. Give this to lovers of animal fantasies and environmentally minded readers.” -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for Endling: ★ “Applegate effortlessly constructs her fantasy world, briskly moving readers through its imaginative details while creating winning, unique characters. This epic series starter is a bracing, propulsive read that will be a challenge to keep on the shelf.” -- ALA
Booklist (starred review)

★ “Exemplifies everything youngsters need to know about courage.” --
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Themes of truth, sacrifice, and unity are pitted against that of corrupt power fueled by murder and ideas of species superiority. Applegate’s commentary on the need for diversity and understanding is clear but not heavy handed. Byx must learn to lead herself—and readers will follow without hesitation.” -- ALA Booklist

Endling: The First has so much to offer: suspense, drama and deep emotion, not to mention high stakes. It’s set to be the book of the summer.” -- New York Times

From the Back Cover

IN BOOK TWO OF KATHERINE APPLEGATE’S EPIC FANTASY ADVENTURE, BYX WILL BECOME THE FIRST TO LEAD A REVOLUTION.

Byx never expected she’d be the first.

The first of her pack to befriend a human.

The first to defy the ruler of their kingdom and live to tell the tale.

Byx always feared being the last dairne. The endling.

Now she is the first to journey into the unknown.

And the first to uncover a deadly secret.

She will become the first to change everything. BYX fears she’s the last of her kind, the endling. But legend tells of a place with a hidden dairne colony. So she’s on a journey into the snow-covered mountains of the country of Dreyland to find them, along with her friends:

Loyal TOBBLE,

Brave and resourceful KHARA,

Wise but deadly GAMBLER,

and RENZO the magical thief.

As the threat of war grows across the lands, they will face untold dangers at every turn. And when a treacherous plot that could bring both Byx’s dreams and the creatures of their world to the brink of extinction is revealed, they may just become the unlikely leaders of a rebellion.
