A genre-busting postapocalyptic 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 who 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 bioweapon
EMSAH. But the true motivation behind Mort(e)’s recklessness is his ongoing search
for a pretransformation 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. Download and start listening now!
