If you win this war - if this small, untrained militia of less than a dozen brings down Nicholas Grant – if a group of teenagers from a special school defeats an army of millions – it will prove the might of underdogs, once and for ever. We are Britain’s last line of defence – outnumbered, outgunned, but not outwitted. We are the people who will bring civilisation back, who history will remember for a thousand years. We are the Underdogs of Spitfire's Rise.

Great storytelling. And although I don't normally read dystopian literature, I'm really glad this group of neurodiverse teens get to be action heroes - because why on earth shouldn't they be?!!! ...more

A brilliant second book in the Underdogs series. Even better than the first book, has a fantastic storyline and the characters are so interesting. Looking forward to the next instalment.

As a fan of the original Underdogs story, I couldn't wait for the second book to be released - and I was not disappointed. In this book, the characters of the group of unlikely heroes in this near-future dystopian novel develop and grow even more. The fast-paced storyline, like the original, kept me turning the pages. It made me laugh, cry and question all the way through. A recommended read. I can't wait for the third in the trilogy. ...more

So enthralling - the second book in this series sucked me in as quickly as the first. An interesting concept for a dystopian future and one where even the "baddies" have well developed characters and understandable motives. Would definitely recommend. ...more

As suspenseful, engaging and thrilling as the first novel. I couldn't put it down. Chris Bonnello has not only created a world in fiction, he has also created neurodiverse characters who make me want to jump into the book and help!
A fabulous read.

Somehow, Tooth and Nail managed to be even better than the first book in the series, and I'd already given that one five stars.

I read the first book in a day and initially thought this would be the same. I was wrong. Not because it didn't grip me (it did); not because I didn't want to know what was going to happen next (I did), but because I needed time to process what I was reading.

I was far more invested in the characters. I really cared about them, and I needed space to think about what they

This is even better than the original. Characters are developed to the point that it is really gutting when the author kills a loved character off. Heavily invested in this series now - can’t wait for Acceleration.

I enjoyed Tooth and Nail at least as much as the first volume of the Underdogs series. YA dystopia set in near-future UK and featuring a cast of characters heavily composed of neurodivergent teens (written by an actually autistic author who has also worked in special education). Tooth and Nail rides a nice line between raising the stakes while leaving clear room for the third volume to go further. Characters that weren't deeply explored in the first volume (the nature of the ensemble cast) got m ...more

Wow. I loved the first and this sequel had me just as gripped. Working in a Special Needs school, I find myself contemplating the personal difficulties my pupils face in a daily basis and wondering if we do enough to try and understand them. A great set of characters to follow
