Description
In this stunning follow-up to Hollow Kingdom and Seattle Times/Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association bestseller', the animal kingdom's "favorite apocalyptic hero"is back with a renewed sense of hope for humanity, ready to take on a world ravaged by a viral pandemic (Helen Macdonald).

Once upon an apocalypse, there lived an obscenely handsome American crow named S.T. . . .
 
When the world last checked-in with its favorite Cheeto addict, the planet had been overrun by flesh-hungry beasts, and nature had started re-claiming her territory from humankind. S.T., the intrepid crow, alongside his bloodhound-bestie Dennis, had set about saving pets that had become trapped in their homes after humanity went the way of the dodo.
 
That is, dear reader, until S.T. stumbled upon something so rare'and so precious'that he vowed to do everything in his power to safeguard what could, quite literally, be humanity's last hope for survival. But in a wild world plagued by prejudiced animals, feather-raising environments, new threats so terrifying they make zombies look like baby bunnies, and a horrendous dearth of cheesy snacks, what's a crow to do?
 
Why, wing it on another big-hearted, death-defying adventure, that's what! Joined by a fabulous new cast of animal characters, S.T. faces many new challenges plus his biggest one yet: parenthood.

MOST ANTICIPATED by Bustle and "Sci-Fi Thriller" recommendation from Buzzfeed.

Description
"Once upon an apocalypse, there lived an obscenely handsome American crow named S.T., which was, of course, short for Sh*t Turd . . . When the world last checked-in with its beloved Cheeto addict, the planet had been overrun by flesh-hungry, zombie-like beasts, and all things natural had started staking claim to territory that had previously been inhabited by humans. And S.T., alongside his Bloodhound-bestie Dennis, had set about saving pets that had become trapped in homes after the extinction of the MoFos (aka, the pets' long-gone owners). That is, dear reader, until S.T. stumbled upon something so rare -- and so precious -- that he vowed to do everything in his power to safeguard what could, quite literally, be humanity's last hope for survival. But in a world plagued by prejudiced animals, unstable environments, and new threats so terrifying they make zombies look like cuddly bunnies, what's a crow to do? Go on another big-hearted, death-defying adventure, that's what, with a fabulous new cast of animal characters in tow"--,Provided by publisher.
