A genre-busting post apocalyptic first novel-a page-turning adventure channeling Animal Farm as imagined by Cormac McCarthy. The "war with no name" has begun; its goal, human extinction. The instigator of this war is the Colony, a race of intelligent ants who, for thousands of years, have been silently building an army that will forever eradicate the destructive, oppressive humans. Under the Colony's watchful eye, this utopia will be free of the humans' penchant for violence, exploitation, and religious superstition. The final step in the Colony's war effort is the transformation of surface animals into high-functioning two-legged beings that will rise up and kill their masters. Former house cat turned war hero Mort (e) is famous for taking on the most dangerous missions and fighting the dreaded human bio-weapon EMSAH. But the true motivation behind Mort (e)'s recklessness is his ongoing search for a retransformation friend-a dog named Sheba. When he receives a mysterious message from the dwindling human resistance claiming Sheba is alive, he begins a journey that will take him from the remaining human strongholds to the heart of the Colony, where he will discover the source of EMSAH and learn the ultimate fate of all earth's creatures.

Animals are sentient. Humans are prey. A cat searches for his dog best friend in a post-apocalyptic world. Audiobook is fantastic!

What happens when animals suddenly become intelligent? Well, they rebel and kill all the humans. This is the story of Mort(e) a former house cat turned warrior and his search for the dog he loved before the change. Think Homeward Bound with mass human genocide!

It's a love story!
