Until the feedings begin.
Throughout the Midwest, people are suddenly being eaten. The authorities are baffled by the rash of carnivorous crimes and they stumble through futile investigations which provide no answers.

As a young man, Doctor James Lewis championed for animal rights and transformed the nation. Six decades later, Jim’s great-granddaughter Emily exists in the shadow of his legacy. Her senile great-grandfather slowly loses his identity as she struggles to find her own. When Jim and Emily face exile in New Canada they must stop the carnage before they become tasty snacks.
Yum uses the time-honored device of anthropomorphism with fresh irreverence; a goth pig, a cow facing an unplanned pregnancy, a sorority turkey, a sex-crazed border collie and a mentally deficient chicken add to the colorful cast of characters. The story is a fast-paced thriller with an abundance of humor and romance.
George Orwell meets George A. Romero in this mouthwatering, darkly comedic horror story.
