Reading level 3
Author Kathryn James
Doomsday High is the nickname for the strict boarding school that houses kids being trained for when The Flare – a solar flare – hits Earth. The students are split between Ultras (who are elite fighters), Animates (who control animals), and Telepaths (who read minds). The rules are harsh; they train from early morning to late at night. Any weakness is punished. Trik is a top Ultra. Feral is a talented Animate. They are sworn enemies. When Trik and Feral are paired for the end of year exams, they not only have to battle each other, but must also work together to find out why someone is trying to kill them both.
