Product Description

Review

Praise for Scott Sigler’s Infected

“An inventive, amped-up yarn . . . full of pressure-cooker mind games.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Fraught with tension . . . Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Hot Zone.”
Rocky Mountain News

“Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk . . . a pulpy masterpiece of action, terror, and suspense.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Judas Strain

“Powerfully written . . . [with] an unforgettable central character. You’ll never listen to Cole Porter’s ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’ the same way again.”
Dallas Morning News

“Once begun, not easily put down . . . leaves the reader’s heart still racing when
the last page is turned.”
Roanoke Times

“A marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror. Sigler is masterful
at grabbing the reader by the throat and refusing to let go.”
—Lincoln Child,New York Times bestselling author of Deep Storm

“Riveting . . . leads the reader from one startling detail to the next . . . a terrifying page-turner.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Format: Hardcover
Wow. This novel was great! I liked how it provided more background information on the aliens and their hidden agenda towards Earth it gave the story more depth and the story is well rounded out. As in Infected, I also liked how there are scientific terms and theories, but it was easily explained and not complicated to understand. We all know some science fiction novels have a lot of technological jargon and you're left wondering if you're reading an encyclopedia on physics or rocket science. Here, everything is kept at Science 101 which is good, at least the reader is not stuck with having to go back to their college notes. I also liked the idea of the virus being able to evolve and to adapt so no matter how hard the government tries to fight it, it somehow gains the upper hand I thought it was an interesting way of keeping the story going.

The use of Chelsea in the book is very well done. It makes the story more eerie and creepy by using a child - a very beautiful and innocent like girl to become one of the most horrible creatures I've ever read in my life. You also get to see Perry Dawsey evolve from a psychotic raging killer doing down the downward spiral to a more calculated one, but with good intentions thanks to Dew.

There is a lot of action in this novel. It's so fast paced and well done it's almost as if you're watching a movie instead of reading. There are also a few military terms here and there but it shouldn't really bother the reader if they're not familiar with the terminology (same with the science terms). There is a lot of gore and swearing for those that aren't keen with that sort of thing. Other than that, this is a very pleasing sequel, is there room for more? well, I suppose it's up for the reader to decide.

Format: Hardcover
Infected was one of my favourite books of last year, and I found it by accident. I downloaded the PDF just prior to the release and I was hooked - I ordered the hardcover after I had read the first couple of chapters.

So when Contagious was announced I pre-ordered so I could get it as soon as possible after release because I knew it was going to be good. Very good.

I was not disappointed.

Contagious takes up the story a few weeks after Infected ends and throws us headlong into the fray once more. There are some new characters and many of the old team (the ones that survived) are present and correct. If correct means ground down by the continuing battle against the triangles and missing some vital pieces, that is.

The pacing is furious and you will not want to put this book down. The twists and turns are handled skillfully and the storytelling is clear and concise. There are no wasted passages (the chicken scissors have been well-deployed) but the descriptions are vivid and stomach churning.

I particularly liked the developments around the triangles and the science behind them. It was detailed enough to satisfy the science nerds without alienating everyone else.

Summary: Top Class.Contagious

Same as Infected....Outstanding novel, perfectly written. Can hardly wait for the conclusion "Pandemic" - I feel envious a little to those who have not yet read it..I wish I could do it all again for the first time..Lots of fun

Scott Sigler's new novel "Contagious" begins where his previous novel "Infected" left off. You can read "Contagious"first but to really understand this new novel you should read "Infected " first.This is not a bad thing as both novels are very good.
Most horror novels use traditional elements of horror such as Vampires.
,Ghosts,Zombies etc. Sigler however in has created a type of horror that is very different and quite horrifying.I hope he will write a sequel to contagious.
