War Of The Animals:

The Shut Face Of Thunder

Book 1 of 3

by Jonathan Decoteau


GENRE:   Sci-Fi Fantasy



Mankind struck first. This time, nature fights back...

A failed effort to weaponize animals awakens their intellects. The military responds by creating death camps to exterminate infected animals. Moon Shadow, an Arctic white wolf, unites with White Claw, a polar bear king, to form Animus Nor, the first animal republic, to negotiate peace. The uneasy peace is broken with the rise of Azaz, lord of the grizzly bears. Azaz attacks human settlements, considering humans an invasive species that wreaks havoc on bears and the environment. A world war breaks out as animals face humans and each other to see who will rule the world.



(The War of The Animals series asks: What if animals rose up against humanity’s pollution of the environment and destruction of their habitats? What if it was a fair fight? This excerpt is from the first chapter and introduces Moon Shadow, queen of the wolves, the protagonist of the early books.)

Moon Shadow shook the harshest of the white winds off with an afflicted whimper. Her paws—icicles lined with nails—winced in their impending numbness. Still, Moon Shadow ran forward. In the distant echo of dreams, she remembered what it was like to live in the world before the end of worlds. An illegally smuggled white Arctic wolf, Moon Shadow knew the love of her former masters before the new age. The tiniest of the humans reminded her of her own pups, tiny balls of white fur that she hoped to coddle until it was their time to hunt. Yet, the same masters took her pups from her, putting them up for the highest bidder to steal. Even after seeing more of the great North American continent than she had ever dreamed of in her life of relative leisure, Moon Shadow had seen no sign of her pups. She wondered if they were now grown with pups of their own. In her heart, she knew it was unlikely that they survived The Rapsys, or Opening of Eyes, as the street dogs of her former town rather poetically referred to this massive change that shook the very marrow of their bones.



I am a nature lover who lives and teaches in beautiful, pastoral New England.

The War of the Animals books were inspired by the 2020 pandemic lockdown. I remember driving by animals that freely roamed the streets after we were in lockdown (I was getting groceries—not ignoring state mandates—I promise!). I felt for the first time how much the animals were in lockdown whenever we weren’t. That inspired the idea of a variety of animals having voices and speaking up for the earth. I started writing the books shortly thereafter.

  1. Thank you for hosting me today and for posting all of the links and info on my book! It is appreciated. Have a great day!

  2. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

  3. Hi. I first realized I wanted to write as a kid reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. At the time (and probably now), the brilliance of setting a story in a chocolate factory seemed like Shakespeare to me. Even at a young age, I thought with my stomach. Thanks for asking!

  4. The cover is awesome! Sounds like an interesting read!

  5. "War of the Animals: The Shut Face Of Thunder" sounds like an exciting and thought-provoking sci-fi fantasy story! I love how it explores the themes of intelligence and the impact of humans on the environment.
    Can't wait to find out who will ultimately rule the world!
