Anumalkind will be tested. Friends will be enemies. Only one can be the Alpha.

Determined to take control of spiraling events, Clinton travels through the scavenger infested Plains of Nomica with Hagen of the Hand. As his abilities manifest, he must learn to control his incredible powers or face certain doom. Meanwhile, Dallas pursues his own mission to fuel his dark desires, and as a result, could destroy the very foundation that society was built upon.

As the seeds of war are sown, fighting erupts, and the clans begin to crumble, Clinton’s only hope of survival is to put his trust in the most unlikely group of outcasts and criminals.

I received this book to give an honest review.
So it took me a minute to get back into the story of Lazerball and its characters. But once I dove in I was wondering where this book was going to go. We see more death happening within this story than in book one. It seems something is coming and it is going to take Clinton and a group anumals to stop Dallas and Nightmare. 
This story was a bit more slower than the first one as it seems we were focusing more on Clinton trying to get his powers learned, and seeing the devastation happening to the villages and cities.
I think that Clinton learns a lot about what he can do if he just steps back and listens to those who offer advice. If you haven't read book one then I highly suggest you do before you read this one only because you will be lost. 
As there was no resolve to what Dallas as planned we just have the dynamics of it all I knew there had to be a book three in the works.
I really liked how we got to know the characters through out the book from Vito to Hagen. It is not much that is known but it is enough to learn who they are and where they come from. 
This book I believe is going to lead up to the fight between good and evil, light and darkness. I just hope Clinton learns more and comes to terms with what he has to do.
