We3Book - 2005
With nervous systems amplified to match their terrifying mechanical exoskeletons, the members of Animal Weapon 3 (WE3) have the firepower of a battalion between them. But they are just the program's prototypes, and now that their testing is complete, they're slated to be permanently "decommissioned," causing them to seize their one chance to make a desperate run for freedom. Relentlessly pursued by their makers, the WE3 team must navigate a frightening and confusing world where their instincts and heightened abilities make them as much a threat as those hunting them - but a world, nonetheless, in which somewhere there is something called "home."

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The carnage levels are unusually high for a story about fuzzy animals. Graphic blood, gore, bones sticking out of things, people disassembled in ways you wouldn't expect. It's beautiful :) (note: smiley added for comedic effect)
