A novel by

 
 
"Bryna licked frantically at her paws as the full weight of the awful truth began to settle on her shoulders . . . the whole of mankind had gone from the town. And yet, how could that be? Men were like the sun, the wind and the rain . . . Always, always there. And if they were not there - then what?"

Abandoned in the depths of winter, the once pampered pets of men, the cats and the dogs, are left to their own fate. To fend for themselves.
Can they survive the cruel weather? Most importantly, can they survive each other?

And later, when the empty town reveals its darkest secret, and the hunters become the hunted, it's kill or be killed. To survive, the animals must unite, in the most desperate fight of their lives . . .
A compelling, epic animal adventure.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Stephen Moore would rather be writing books than writing about himself. But here goes:

Stephen hails from the North East of England, a land he never tires of exploring; full of ancient Roman history, fantastic castles and remnants of the infamous Border Reivers.

A long time ago, before he discovered the magic of storytelling, Stephen was an exhibition designer and he has fond memories of working in the strange old world of museums. Sometimes he can still be found in auction houses pawing over old relics!

Stephen has shared his house with several of the animals that frequent his books, though not the flying pigs or foul-smelling brugan. He loves art and books, old and new. He's into rock music and movies and theatre and video games! But mostly, he likes to write, where he gets to create his own worlds. If pushed very hard to name his favourite book of all time - there are many contenders - he'd have to say . . . Today, it's a dead heat between, Robert Westall's The Machine Gunners and Robert Louis Stephenson's Treasure Island.

Maybe, his own books are OK too?
