By Loves Reading - Published on

I bought this book orignally on a whim to read a new and up and coming author. I gave the book to several children to read. All enjoyed the book. I suggest this book for children 10-14.

HASH(0xa11e67bc) out of 5 stars Wonderful!! April 18 2012
By Grandma - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just read The Storm and it was great! The dogs have great personalities and you really get to know and love them. The story moves so fast that I finished it in one day... can't wait for the next book.

Dayna has created a great story with well developed characters that you really feel for. Amazing story with some really suspenseful events. The entire book is a page turner.

Highly recommended for everybody!! Although it is geared for the 10 to 14 age group, it is a good read for us adults looking for a fast moving and action packed story.

Get the entire set because you will want the next book as soon as you finish the first!

Great job Dayna Lorentz... we will be watching for your next series.
HASH(0xa11e6bf4) out of 5 stars Delightful kidlit Feb. 21 2013
By Michael A. DiBaggio - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a fun book with endearing characters and a good moral message.

The story is told cleverly from a dog's perspective - the dogs pant when they find something funny, they say things like, "I need to bark with you" and "As you can smell..." and recall their many battles with the 'floor sucker' (vacuum cleaner).

Better still are the charming personalities of the main characters and their friendships with each other, especially the noble lead dog, Shep. Shep is an escapee from an underground dog fighting circuit, large and powerful, but with a heart of gold. He does not love violence or conflict and wants nothing more than for his boy to return to him, but is forced by circumstances and his conscience to come to the rescue of a host of other dogs, abandoned like him against the ravages of nature and the predations of a wild dog pack. He keeps on keepin' on, even when his attempts to do right backfire, the other dogs prove ungrateful and annoying, and his best friend turns into a deadly foe. Though a dog, Shep's courage, perseverance, and compassion make him a worthy role model to young readers. I daresay that Shep's faith, movingly portrayed in several spots throughout the book, resonates as a canine mythologizing of the Christian message, and is sure to warm the hearts of all good people.

I don't know what age of reader this book was intended for, but it has some darker themes and a smattering of nasty violence, though none of these seem gratuitous or are played for titillation. Still, caveat emptor if you are buying this for very young children. Also, the cast of characters gets pretty large by the end of the book and it is hard to keep track of who is who. This is a minor complaint, however, and I enjoyed the book a great deal.

HASH(0xa11e6bdc) out of 5 stars A good read Sept. 6 2012
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I liked the book. I read the other books too. I recommend this series for kids who like adventure and action. If you read warrior cats I think it's the same style so try it out!
HASH(0xa11e6e94) out of 5 stars Lovers of "Warriors" by Erin Hunter... Sept. 4 2012
By Rachel G - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you love the "Warriors" series by Erin Hunter, you'll love this trilogy too. It was a great series to read in between waiting for the next Warriors book to come out, and I couldn't take my eyes away from this story. I was a little apprehensive that this book would be too "pleasing" as compared to the emotional throws and wildness of the Warriors series, but the "Dogs of the Drowned City" trilogy actually does have a nice mix of adventure, romance, and sorrow. As I got towards the end of the last book, I kept hoping there was more.
