Endling #2: The First is the second book in an epic middle grade animal fantasy series by Katherine Applegate. Applegate is a Newbery Medal award winner and a #1 New York Times bestselling author of The One and Only Ivan, Wishtree, and Crenshaw! This is a book that must not be missed.
If you love fantasy and fantasy animals that look a lot like like dogs this is the book for you. Byx isn’t like any other dog though, in fact, she isn’t a dog at all. She has the soft silky fur of a squirrel, a pouch like a kangaroo, and stands up on her two back feet. She is an amazingly curious creature at heart.
Byx finds herself in the world of Nedarra, which was once governed by six different species. What Byx must learn is whether she is the last of her kind – the last dairne in the world. She travels into the snow-covered mountains of the country of Dreyland along with her friends, where they hope to discover the truth behind the folkloric legend that there is a hidden dairne colony. However, threat of war throughout the lands continues to grow with each passing day.
Byx and her friends confront untold dangers at every twist and turn, and ultimately uncover a treacherous plot involving other controlling species in Nedarra leaving both her dreams and all the other creatures of Nedarra on the brink of extinction, Byx, and her friends learn to never give up hope.
They eventually find themselves unlikely leaders in a rebellion that risks everything they love and hold dear. Byx may be the last of her kind, but perhaps she is the first to lead the revolution?
Applegate delivers an action-packed middle-grade sequel in a uniquely otherworldly setting, with characters that are relatable, cute and fuzzy, along with having goals as they learn to hold onto hope.
