Autor Laura Martin Ilustrat de Eric Deschamps
en Limba Engleză Paperback – mai 2018 – vârsta până la 12 ani
Perfect for fans of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World! Code Name Flood is the electrifying sequel to The Ark Plan, which School Library Journal praised by saying: “Nonstop action, marauding dinosaurs, and kids on the run: What’s not to like?”
Last week, twelve-year-old Sky found a cryptic message from her dad, who mysteriously fled the safety of their underground compound five years ago. The note said the fate of the world depended on her going topside, to a lost world that’s ruled by dinosaurs.
Today, after a treacherous journey through the wilderness, Sky and her friends have made it to their destination: Lake Michigan. There they discover a hidden underwater lab, and with the help of its scientists, Sky will finally learn the truth about her father’s secret mission.
Tomorrow, it will be up to Sky and her friends to save humanity from the very edge of extinction.
Readers who enjoy middle grade adventures by Brandon Mull and Rick Riordan will love this action-packed story, which takes the premise of Michael Crichton’s bestselling classic to a whole new level, envisioning a postapocalyptic future where cloned dinosaurs have taken over and the world’s only hope is one group of courageous kids.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

“We can’t just let the world end. We have work to do.”
Five years ago: Sky’s father fled their underground compound to go topside, to a land ruled by dinosaurs. Before leaving, he hid instructions on how to complete his mysterious mission if he were ever to fail.
Last Week: Sky stumbled upon the clues her father had left behind: a memory card, a map pointing to Lake Michigan, and a message telling her the fate of the world depends on getting there. So she and her best friend, Shawn, broke out of North Compound, following in her father’s footsteps.
Today: After narrowly escaping both dinosaurs that want to eat her and marines sent to stop her—and making some unexpected new allies along the way—Sky and her friends have finally made it to Lake Michigan. They discover a secret lab hidden in the water that is home to scientists who have actually been helping the dinosaurs. With their aid, Sky learns the truth about her father’s mission. And that he was right all along . . .
Tomorrow: It will be up to Sky and her friends to save the world from the very people who had sworn to protect it.
