Canine heroes Max, Rocky, and Gizmo return in this exciting series finale! As the trio travel south, following a trail of beacons left by Dr. Lynn, they encounter a stampede of horses. The horses urge the dogs to turn back, warning about a "silver wall of doom" that lies ahead.

But the warning only serves to motivate Max. Could this be the wall from his dreams? The wall keeping Max from his family? Helped by animals along the way -- including bats and armadillos -- the dogs find themselves deep in the desert, where they face a new enemy: coyotes. They aren't the only danger, though. Dolph and his wolf pack lie in wait -- poised for a final showdown.

The Last Dogs: Journey's End is the final book in a thrilling series about three unlikely friends on an epic quest to find their people -- and bring them home.

    A great ending to a great series! I thought with some trepidation that perhaps it would get too dark at the ending, but to my relief the author kept in mind that children do not necessarily need to read about woe and violence to keep them invested in a good story. The ending was exciting and climactic as the dogs have finally found their families and might be separated for good, but it never resorted to human characters pulling out guns or a big animal fight scene to be a big 'shocker' ending. I would suggest this book series to any reader, young or old! I would highly recommend The Last Dogs to anybody of any age who enjoys the harrowing tales of friendships, family, adventure, and suspense. It's fantastic for middle grade and up. 10/10 read overall
