The Book


Chernobyl 1986. Those left behind must fight to survive.



 


Chernobyl, 1986. The world is coming to an end. Dragged from her bed in the middle of the night and forced to leave her beloved puppy behind, Natasha has no idea if she'll ever return home. 

Growing up in the shadow of the ruined nuclear power plant, Misha and Bratan need to learn how to survive - and fast. Creatures with sharp teeth, scythe-like claws and yellow eyes lurk in the overgrown woods. And they're watching the young pups…
