Reviews

"A riveting near-future medical thriller that reads like the genetically-engineered love child of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton."--John Joseph Adams
"Readers with strong stomachs will welcome this unusual take on the future."--Kirkus Reviews
"Fans of [the Newsflesh] series will definitely want to check this new book out. But fans of Michael Crichton-style technothrillers will be equally enthralled: as wild as Grant's premise is, the novel is firmly anchored in real-world science and technology."--Booklist
"Grant extends the zombie theme of her Newsflesh trilogy to incorporate thoughtful reflections on biomedical issues that are both ominously challenging and eerily plausible. Sally is a complex, compassionate character, well suited to this exploration of trust, uncertainty, and the price of progress."--Publishers Weekly
"It's a well-grounded medical wariness that gets at the heart of what the Parasitology series will be asking: What happens when the cure is worse than the disease?"--NPR Books
"An exceptionally creepy medical-horror thriller that's the perfect spine-tingling read for Halloween... [a] roller coaster ride."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram
