- The Broken Path - Survivors 4 Book Summary and Study Guide
Lucky's pack has been recently threatened by the neighboring Fierce Dog pack, and their objective is to find new territory far from this pack. They also worry about a bad, ash-like, stinging rain that sometimes comes in place of regular rain, and from which they must constantly take refuge.
Though it would lovely to outrun, they seem to believe this problem may well be everywhere and anywhere they go given the state of their world. Click here to see the rest of this review. A number of conflicts arise over the course of the book. Lick, a Fierce Dog pup who has abandoned his pack for Lucky's, has difficulty obtaining the trust of his pack mates, and misses his siblings who are still in the Fierce Dog pack.
Lucky finds him visiting one of them on several occasions, and warns him against this because he knows how other pack members are likely to react, yet still protects him when it comes time to report to Alpha.

Alpha nonetheless does not trust Lick. When it comes time to hold a naming ceremony for two other pups who are about Lick's age, Lick is not allowed to participate. During the naming ceremony, each pup chooses his adult name. Lucky never had a naming ceremony within a dog pack due to his background and can't remember how he received his name, though the reader finds out in chapter 1. Conflict also arises between the former city dogs and dogs who have always been wild. Especially for those dogs who spent much of their lives as pets with human "longpaw" masters, their point of view is often quite different from those who have always been wild.
Lucky finds himself on the wild end of the city dog group, having been born under human mastery, but having spent significant time wandering and surviving in the city without a master.

He is thus able to understand both groups a little better and act more diplomatically in this regard than some of the other dogs. One of those authors is Erin Hunter, and I am proud to say that because I recently finished bo Star Rating: 5 stars Note: This is the 4th book in the Survivors series so this will not be an in-depth review. My favorite part about this book is that we are starting to get a far clearer picture of the changed world these dogs are living in.
Because of events that happened in book 3, our Pack has had to flee the territory that they were residing in and strike out into the unknown. While they are travelling, they have many experiences and visit a great number of different places, which allows us, as readers, to get a clearer perspective of the world. At first, I thought that the Big Growl was an earthquake, but as the dogs have had more experiences and explored more of their world, I am starting to think it was something different. We know that the water is poisoned with some kind of substance, and at first, I thought it was poisoned with fluids from broken pipes or cars that were damaged in the Big Growl.
I still think that is some of the poisoned water, but it was revealed in this book that the rain is mixed with ash, burns whatever it comes into contact with, and leaves a yellowish salt when it evaporates. Also, there is a point when the dogs discover a town that is perfectly preserved, but all the residents are dead with no visible wounds. It is only because of the expansion of the world due to the travels of the dogs that I was able to make these inferences, and I really hope that this trend continues as I really enjoy using what the dogs experience and come into contact with to try and figure out what is really going on We are seeing this scenario from the perspective of a Pack of dogs and it is really interesting to try and figure out what is happening using this narrowed point of view.
I also really like how the Wild dogs and the Leashed dogs are starting to realize that they have to set aside their differences in order to survive. In this changed world, no one understands what is going on and no one has the complete skill set needed to survive so joining forces is a must. The parts where dogs from different backgrounds were able to share their knowledge and thus adapt and survive better warmed my heart and I hope we have more instances of this behavior in upcoming books.
A lot of the book explores whether this dog will be able to control her instincts and channel her aggression in order to survive with the Pack or whether she will have no choice but to become anger-ridden and untamable. It was a very interesting discussion and I am very keen to see how it plays into the next books as it looks like it is going to be a main factor.
All in all, this was an amazing installment that kept my attention from beginning to end. Feb 26, Candy Evianrei rated it it was amazing Shelves: middle-grade-children. The Broken Path has been my favorite installment in the Survivors series yet!

The Pack also meets another group of dogs led by a crazy Alpha named Terror, who leads his pack with fear and speaks of a Spiritual Fear-Dog. You might like this book if While I understand her aggression and easily lost temper could prove to be a danger to the pack, it is clear that her emotions stem from her concern for others.
Lick cares about Lucky and the Pack. I have a feeling that if they were more widely accepting of her earlier on, she wouldn't be at stubborn and emotional. Many times in the book she admits to feeling hated and wonders if she is evil. I really want to see Lick grow as a character and become a beloved member of the pack.
Especially with her new name Storm which she chooses at the end. I hope the name she chose isn't foreshadowing anything late on in the series. I was devastated when Fiery met his end in this book. I did not expect him to challenge Alpha but when he did I found it difficult to put the book down. I was so stoked to hopefully see Fiery take the pack over, but that didn't happen.
I was thrown for a loop when Fiery was caught, and was broken-hearted to read about his death. He is a character that will definitely be missed. I wonder what will happen to Twitch now that his old pack has been I suppose, disbanded? Feb 10, Kirsti rated it really liked it. It's always difficult to order books in, partly because my bookstore is generally stocked well, so I buy what I see and wait for orders when I get a gift card or can't find anything.
I already know I spend far too much on buying books, but I had to have the rest of this series and it was finally time. I ordered this one, books five and six, and the collection of the short stories all together. I'm just waiting on book six to show up now! This story has always been a little more exciting than the It's always difficult to order books in, partly because my bookstore is generally stocked well, so I buy what I see and wait for orders when I get a gift card or can't find anything.
This story has always been a little more exciting than the Warriors books, as these are set in the world after some great calamity has hit. I imagine it's something nuclear, since the water has been poisoned and acid rain falls. Humans, or 'longpaws' seem to be capturing animals now to test the effects. Other dogs are threats too, especially the Fierce dogs. It has been a while since I read the last book, but I still picked this up easily enough and followed along with the story.
Lucky is still a frustrating main character, he lacks the focus and drive that made me love Firestar in Warriors. He is growing though, and I wonder where these books will take him also, that's not the point where you comment what happens, I had that one a review for one of my Warriors reads and posting spoilers sucks, even if I'd already read the series.
Who knows if someone else has not? I obviously have the next couple of books now, except the last, so I'll read on myself and see! Feb 21, Michelle K. Rating : 4. I wrote a good review I thought , but when I clicked 'save' in the word processor, it just disappeared and no amount of searching or restarting could make it reappear again. Anyway, two major points to make. A bit of a shock in a middle-grade book. You've been warned. As an owner of blue-nose pitbulls a dog often used in fights where cruel, Rating : 4.
As an owner of blue-nose pitbulls a dog often used in fights where cruel, degenerate, stupid people make them fight often to the death so they can bet on them , I can tell you these dogs are as docile as you raise them to be. Accidents do happen among all dog breeds! Jun 01, Eliana rated it it was amazing. Good job Erin Hunter, you really know how to make someone hate another. Alpha Is probably one of the most greedy, disrespectful bastards in the whole entire book! If Alpha was a human being, I would find him, and give him a really good kick in the shin.
But anyway, this book was really good. And sad. A good adventure book has to at least get rid of a good character. And Erin Hunter succeeded in doing so. Cliffhangers upset me but they are very effective in a way. Its to draw people into getting Good job Erin Hunter, you really know how to make someone hate another.

Its to draw people into getting the next book. And that definitely worked on me. Good job, once again! I love all the books.
The Broken Path - Survivors 4 Book Summary and Study Guide
Mar 20, Sarah rated it it was amazing. Dec 05, Yassmina Stefania rated it it was amazing. That's awesome. The book is good and the characters too. I think Storm Will be one of the best dogs that the Wild pack ever had. Sep 23, Kathi rated it liked it. This is my least favorite book in this series so far. In the first three, I clearly found worthwhile lessons that would be good to discuss with young readers. In Broken Path, themes and morals are present, but are a little harder to determine.
Also because a new, even more vicious pack of dogs appears, there is even more violence than in the earlier books—a clear negative to me. Lucky, our hero-in-the-making, is trying to parent Lick, the Fierce Dog pup. Like reality in families, however, the pra This is my least favorite book in this series so far. Like reality in families, however, the practice of setting boundaries and providing guidelines is difficult. Lick proves herself a fighter and valuable to the pack, but Alpha remains reluctant to accept her.
Lucky and the hunting party give Lick the important naming ceremony at the end of the book, but the entire pack is not present. She chooses the name Storm. Lucky has had dreams since Book One about a Storm Dog—a clear foreshadowing for events of the next book or two, I suspect. He certainly takes as good as he gives too especially from Sakura, and he soldiers on through everything from cheek-splitting punches to scalp-splitting baton strikes.
