SurvivorsSurvivors is a new series that uses the Erin Hunter pen name alongside Warriors and Seekers. However it is actually written by a new 'Erin' called Gillian Philip. None of the previous Erin Hunters will work on the Survivors series, although the same editors will be working with Gillian, so it should have a similar style to Warriors and Seekers.
Official WebsiteAn official Survivors website has also been set up, as a sub-site to the main Warrior Cats website.

The StoryThe series follows the same Erin Hunter trend, featuring a certain animal as they survive in their world, experiencing adventures and challenges along the way. Whereas Warriors was cats, and Seekers was bears, Survivors features dogs.
The story follows a dog called Lucky, as well as several other characters (read about the characters here). The story begins in a city as it is hit by a 'big growl' (earthquake) and most 'longpaws' (humans) have either fled the city or died. The story then follows Lucky as he searches for safety. Before the big growl Lucky was a lone dog who lived mainly by scavenging off longpaws, however he soon realises things can never be the same again and he sets out with his friend Sweet into the destroyed city. Lucky is reluctant to form a pack like Sweet suggests and he ends up going off alone. He later meets a strange 'pack' of dogs, one of which happens to be his sister Bella, who he hasn't seen since they were puppies. Lucky soon learns that the 'pack' is infact a group of 'leashed dogs' (pet dogs) who have no idea how to survive by themselves. Dispite wishing to continue his life as a lone dog, Lucky reluctantly begins to help the 'pack' and travels with them as he teaches them how to survive in the 'wild'. The story continues as they travel together getting into adventures, both fun and dangerous along the way.
