Description: Ordinary kids: extraordinary powers: amazing adventures. Dax's fox instincts have never let him down before, and right now they're telling him something is very wrong at school. Is Dax really the only one who can sense it? But before he can help his friends, he must overcome his own rising panic and learn more about his shapeshifting powers . . .
Synopsis: Ordinary kids: extraordinary powers: amazing adventures. Dax is starting to get used to his life as a shapeshifter. At last he feels safe and secure, surrounded by people he trusts, and with real friends who understand what he is going through. But then everything changes, and Dax finds himself in danger beyond his wildest dreams. And just when he needs his best friend Gideon to be there for him, Gideon's life changes too. Dramatically. And forever. Now Dax feels more alone than ever. Because he can feel that something is very wrong - but no one will take him seriously. No one else can see the danger that threatens to destroy them all ...With appeal for both boys and girls, this is a fast-paced action adventure about contemporary children with super powers, told with award-winning Ali Sparkes's humour and lightness of touch. Perfect for fans of Alex Rider, Robert Muchamore's CHERUB series, and Young Bond.
