    One thought on “The Battle Begins”

    1. ARC from Young Adult Books Central and reviewed thereCastor and his brother Runt are living with their pack on the ground level of a society where the air and environment has become poisoned enough that the well-to-do live in the sky. Marcus is one of these people, living with his parents and enjoying watching the Mega Monster Mash-up tournaments that have become popular. Even though his older brother, Pete, works as a medic for the animals, he thinks that these are virtual fights, and that the [...]

    2. I have, in my advanced age, created a tentative policy on middle grade fiction: I will continue a series that I started at an "appropriate" age, such as Warriors or Wings of Fire or some such thing, but out of some misguided attempt at maintaining my dignity I will not start a new series.That changed when I wandered down to the basement/children's section of my local library on the hunt for the next Seekers book and came across this in the new section. Like most things involving fluffy dogs, it [...]

    3. While the premise sounded interesting, I just couldn't get into this one. Overall, the writing was flat and the character introduction info-dump came across as the work of an amateur. In fact, the lack of style reminded me of another writer I'd attempted to read before. Once I flipped to the back, I wasn't surprised; the author profusely thanked James Patterson for his guidance, and cited Patterson's advice to "cut the poetry." Well, the lack of "poetry" (substitute with the word style) was exac [...]

    4. The Unnaturals are genetically engineered animals created to fight each other to the death, kind of like the Hunger Games, but for hybrid animals. The setting is a dystopian world in which the wealthy live "in the sky" and the poor are "down below," living in the polluted world. Castor is a German Shepherd who is captured and injected with eagle serum. Most of the story is told from his point of view, as he struggles with the plight he finds himself in. The scenes which feature two kids, Marcus [...]

    5. When I picked out this book, I suspected it wouldn't be very good. But it had a number of elements I liked (told from the animal's POV being the main one), and it had a great cover (I know, I know), so I decided to give it a try.The story opened with a pack of dogs living on the street. Through them we learn that people never leave the buildings anymore -- the air and water is too toxic for them to survive. (So how do dogs and all other animals survive outside? Since they were more intelligent t [...]

    6. ๐Ÿ˜Žand the first day of reading was awsomeAwesome thanks for the last time they had fought and when the poisonious died it made me cry ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Awesome book

    7. The Unnaturals by Devon Hughes is a book about the struggles to be yourself and friendship. Devon Hughes illustrates this beautifully throughout her book.It introduces us to our main character, Castor, through his dream in the dystopian world. Symbolizing his wish for peace and a place to be truly safe. As the plot progresses the normal german shepherd is thrown into a lab of mutants being trained to fight against each other and is turned into one himself.They newly transformed are called โ€˜The [...]

    8. This is the first book in a Dystopian sci-fi series for the younger set. Details are sketchy as to how the world has become what it is currently but it likely has something to do with global warming and the deterioration of the atmosphere coupled with pollution. Humans are separated into those who live in the Drain, down below, and those who live elevated in protected dwellings above and protected from the mess. In order to entertain the masses, animals are caught and turned into mutants via inj [...]

    9. I have to admit that at first, I wanted to judge this book by its cover. A dog with wings? Huh? But after skimming a page or two at a random spot in the book, I decided I wanted to read it after all. I was quickly hooked and hardly put it down. It was an easy read, but it had a good plot, great characters, and nice descriptiveness. The author did a good job of putting you in futuristic world, and you could easily connect with the human and animal characters. Overall an awesome book; I hope that [...]

    10. In this book, dog fighting on steroids meets genetic engineering in an action-packed story. Castor is a stray who loves hunting with his pack. But one day he is captured and taken to a secret lab where he is genetically modified and then forced to fight other genetically modified animals. It takes a team of animals and humans alike to band together and save these creatures.Recommended for ages 8-12.

    11. This is one of my favorite science fiction books, and I have recommended it to several of my friends. Castor becomes an Eagle/German Shepard mix breed, along with some of his friends becoming mix breeds as well. I love how the author thinks of morphing DNA to create different species, it's a very creative idea.

    12. They're called Unnaturals, and they're made to fight. With that said you should know what your getting when you start this book. a good start to a series. Placed in a world so messed up by humans that ground level of cities are toxic. Well written with characters developing through story Animal pit fighting could be disturbing to some younger readers.

    13. A winged German Shepherd, a saber toothed tiger/bear, a panther rabbit hybrid and more amazing animal combinations, combined with a story about the ethical treatments of animals and their place where humanities entertainments are concerned. A book well worth the read

    14. It is an amazing book showing friendship, action, and science fiction. It is set in the future with the entertainment for the people is watching Unnaturals (mutants) fight each other. The story is told from many views and is inspiring.

    15. I had a very hard time getting through this because of the animal cruelty; it is just a really disturbing read and while I can see that the action might be compelling for some readers, it was not for me.

    16. Good read, loved the pictures as they really helped visualize the hybrids. Can't wait to continue the series.

    17. A street dog is taken and turned into a mutant, then forced to fight with other mutants.This book is in the far future( maybe 3 centuries)

    18. I received a copy of this book free from a Giveaway and immediately handed it to my oldest son, who absolutely loved it.
