The Dogs of the Kiskadee Hills: Hunt for the Lynx is the first book in a trilogy about a society of dogs after humans have destroyed themselves and much of the world. Living with their families and clans in the Kiskadee Hills, they’ve developed over generations a rich tradition and way of life, with hunters, guards, poets, prophets, Enforcers, Noble Ones, and Gawls, or mixed breeds. But in their world, too, there are slaves and masters, purebreds and outcasts. While many prosper, others suffer in endless misery.
Now, for the first time in their history, an unknown killer is butchering the Kisdees of the Hills. Is it Rathbane, a gigantic mixed wolfhound Gawl, who wishes to bring down everything they created? Is it wolves, the Ancients, who have scores to settle with dogs? Is it humans, or Magogs, a small group of whom has just emerged from underground, the only survivors of their species? Or is it someone else, who holds in his black heart the history of all three species and has planned his revenge?
The Dogs of the Kiskadee Hills trilogy imagines a future world where humans are no longer masters, where they’re hated and feared by dogs and wolves who have only bitter memories of past cruelty and enslavement. It re-imagines a historic moment when, after ties are formed and broken, battles fought and memories avenged, the three must decide how they will live. Will humans once again wish to own others? Can humans, dogs, and wolves live a life of synergy and cooperation, or forever go their own ways, viewing each other only as enemies and competitors for survival?
