The Blurb

Darkness threatens the Wild Pack in this thrilling Survivors adventure! Red Moon Rising is the fourth book in the second arc of the bestselling Survivors series, from #1 nationally bestselling author Erin Hunter.

When no dog can be trusted, no dog is safe.

After rescuing Alpha and Beta’s pups from drowning in the Endless Lake, Storm is a hero to her Packmates, but danger still walks among them—and it won’t be long before the traitor dog strikes again. The Pack must find a way to stand together against the most malicious and elusive enemy they have ever known... before terror and doubt tear them apart forever.

Survivors’s winning blend of epic action, canine friendship, and animal folklore has earned it rave reviews, including two starred reviews from Kirkus Reviews, which praised the series as “wild and wonderful adventure.” This action-packed second arc is perfect for both new readers and existing fans who’ve been howling for more of the Wild Pack!

Detailed Plot Summary

Storm is still trying to find out the murderer. Bruno tells Storm he's sorry for accusing her the murderer, even though he still believes Arrow is the bad-dog. Bruno is murdered soon after, and the pack suspects Storm is behind it all. At the end of the book, Storm leaves the pack, tired of all the evil things she has been accused of, even though she has tirelessly proved herself to them over again.


  • Featured on the cover are Beetle and Thorn, with Bruno, Moon and Storm behind them
