The final epic adventure is here! The sixth and final book in #1 bestselling author Erin Hunter’s Survivors: The Gathering Darkness series is a thrilling, action-packed finale you won’t want to miss.

The time has come for a traitor to fall.

Storm has discovered the identity of the traitor dog who was sabotaging her former Pack—but when she returned from her exile, she fell right into the Traitor Dog’s waiting trap. Now a prisoner in the Wild Pack’s camp, Storm is running out of time. This is her last chance to save the Pack… and to put an end to what the traitor began.

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.” Erin Hunter’s ferociously loyal fans won’t want to miss this action-packed finale!
