Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton

" This is one of the more vibrant, original books I've read in a long time, told by one of the most enjoyable narrators EVER. S.T., a domesticated crow, likes his life in Seattle with Big Jim, a slovenly electrician. But when Big Jim (and the rest of humanity) falls prey to a strange sickness, S.T. has to figure out how to stay safe... and save any creatures who are left. This book is jam-packed with hilarious moments, but Buxton (and S.T.) are also incredibly thoughtful about what makes the world beautiful, and what makes humanity worth saving. I loved this! "

S.T., a domesticated crow, is a bird of simple pleasures: hanging out with his owner Big Jim, trading insults with Seattle's wild crows (those idiots), and enjoying the finest food humankind has to offer: Cheetos ®.

Then Big Jim's eyeball falls out of his head, and S.T. starts to feel like something isn't quite right. His most tried-and-true remedies--from beak-delivered beer to the slobbering affection of Big Jim's loyal but dim-witted dog, Dennis--fail to cure Big Jim's debilitating malady. S.T. is left with no choice but to abandon his old life and venture out into a wild and frightening new world with his trusty steed Dennis, where he discovers that the neighbors are devouring each other and the local wildlife is abuzz with rumors of dangerous new predators roaming Seattle. Humanity's extinction has seemingly arrived, and the only one determined to save it is a foul-mouthed crow whose knowledge of the world around him comes from his TV-watching education.
