Doglands

LoveReading Expert Review of Doglands

A gripping adventure, Doglands is also a stirring comment on power and those who wield it and bravery and those who can show it. Furgal, Keeva’s first-born pup, is born in a prison camp for greyhounds run by the cruel owner Dedbone. It’s a tough enough existence for a champion greyhound such as Keeva but she knows that there will be no shelter in it for her crossbreed pups; Furgal must follow his outlaw father and lead his siblings to safety. Furgal’s flight from cruelty and his epic journey to find freedom is a powerfully captured in this stirring story which is not for the faint hearted.

Doglands Synopsis

Furgul is a puppy born in a slave camp for racing greyhounds. But he has a terrible secret - he is only part greyhound. When the cruel owner of the camp recognises Furgul's impure origins he takes him to be killed, but Furgal manages a spectacular escape. Now Furgul must confront the indifference, complexity, and ferocity of the greater world, a world in which there seems to be two choices: live the comfortable life of a pet and sacrifice freedom or live the life of a free dog, glorious but also dangerous, because every man will turn his hand against you.
