Two genetically altered dogs, two different fates.

But that s not all the scientist does the experiments he conducts leave Robo a genius, almost immortal and with powers beyond explanation. But the horror Robo experiences at the scientist's hands changes him driving him insane with the sole mission to destroy all humans, especially those who have tortured and hurt dogs.

Meanwhile, a scrappy alley husky sits in a shelter, when she with her blue eyes and tough wolf-like features captures the attention of another group of scientists desperate to stop Robo from his path of destruction. This dog, called Blue, could be the chosen one to fight and defeat Robo. She is also genetically enhanced and left with glowing turquoise eyes before being released to face Robo s vicious dog army. Her mission: save human civilization and the packs of dogs she's grown to love.

REVIEW:
4 stars

I really enjoyed reading Blue's Prophecy by Emily Ross with Diane Lore. It was a very interesting story, with an intriguing plot and well-written characters. I was quickly pulled into this story and thought the pacing was good. There were times that I felt the pacing was a little slow but overall I though it flowed smoothly at a nice pace.

I definitely want to continue with this series and I think that this book is great for young and older readers alike. I definitely would recommend this book especially if you are a fan of stories and worlds like Erin Hunter's. For me, it had somewhat of a nostalgic feeling toward t even though I had never read it before but it was from a viewpoint of animals and I loved reading books like that when I was younger, and that was a nice feeling to get from this book.

  1. Thanks Chelsea! I'm starting to write the second book this summer and I'll think about what you said. Really appreciate that part about the nostalgia - I loved Warrior Cats and that's one of the series of books that drove me to start writing myself. Emily R.
