Summary

Summary

The second book in New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer's Lost Rainforest series will thrill fans of Warriors and Spirit Animals with action and humor as the shadowwalkers battle to save their magical rainforest home.

Caldera always existed in harmony between the creatures who walk by day and those who walk by night--until an ancient evil awakened. In the year since the shadowwalkers' narrow escape from the Ant Queen, the ants' destruction has only spread.

Gogi, a shadowwalker monkey still learning to wield his fire powers, embarks on a quest with his friends--including a healing bat, an invisible panther, and a tree frog who controls the winds--for a powerful object that can harness the magic of the eclipse to defeat the Ant Queen.

But with just weeks before the next eclipse, Gogi must race to prove that he can control the mighty depths of his talent if he is to protect his friends, save the rainforest, and return home unsinged.


Author Notes

Eliot Schrefer is a notable, best-selling young adult author. Schrefer attended Harvard University, where he graduated with High Honors in French and American literature.

Schrefer's first novel, Glamorous Disasters, was a somewhat autobiographical tale of a young man living in Harlem and paying off college debt while tutoring Fifth-Avenue families. After writing another novel for adults, he turned to young adult fiction with The School for Dangerous Girls, about a boarding school for criminal young ladies. That book was selected as a "Best of the Teen Age" by the New York Public Library, and his next novel, The Deadly Sister, earned a starred review from School Library Journal.

Schrefer's fifth novel Endangered, about a girl surviving wartime in Congo with an orphan bonobo ape, was a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature, one of NPR's "Best of 2012," and an editor's choice in The New York Times. ELIOT SCHREFER is also the author of Threatened, a finalist for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature in 2014, about a boy surviving in the jungles of Gabon alongside chimpanzees and Rise and Fall, the sixth book in the Spirit Animals Series.

Schrefer's works have been translated into many languages including German, Russian, Polish, Taiwanese, Bulgarian, and Japanese.
