The New Wild by Holly Brasher

The idea behind this book is intriguing. Mother nature has had enough of the abuse humans heap on her and she decides to wipe the slate clean.
I had thought the novel would be a dystopian survival novel but I am really not sure exactly what it is. Is it dystopian? Apocalyptic? Fantasy? Or a blend of all three? I found the main characters to be a bit one dimensional and had a bit of a hard time with some of the new creatures to be found. I felt like the novel didn't know if it wanted to be survive against all odds or a surreal fantasy novel. It distracted me from the novel as a whole. The vision behind the book is compelling and I really think the author has potential but the novel just didn't do it for me. I received a copy of this novel for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
