Book I of the New Wilderness trilogy by Brian S Matthews
By day it's cats and dogs, by night it's mice and rats, and if the birds don't get you then the insects will. But hey, that's life at the bottom of the food chain. One normal summer day, every mammal, reptile and avian on the entire planet unite with a single goal: The extermination of mankind. Three days later the insects join in, and it doesn't stop. It never stops.
Ten years later, scattered pockets of humanity fight to keep flesh and sanity intact as they strive to unravel the mystery of what made the animals change, and more importantly, how to change them back.

"A remarkably well-written novel that will leave you unable to stop reading."
Winnipeg Free Press
"Matthews has created a world so realistic that you will look suspiciously at your pets."
"The interplay of gritty survivalism and rapid-fire action yields a page-turner, throughout which the author has also deftly woven themes of environmentalism and conservation."
