About Lorentz's Dogs of the Drowned City series:
Follow the adventures of Shep and his packmates as they struggle to survive a city-killing hurricane, only to have to fight wild dogs and other scavenging beasts for food and shelter in the drowned city that remains.

Ultimately, each survivor must choose his own path and discover what it means to go home when the only home he knew has been taken from him.
