Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Deft cultural touches, intriguing science, and amped-up action will delight Grant's numerous fans. Publishers Weekly on Deadline
The zombie novel Robert A. Heinlein might have written. Sci-Fi Magazine on Feed
A masterpiece of suspense. Publishers Weekly on Feed (Starred Review)
An exceptionally creepy medical-horror thriller that's the perfect spine-tingling read for Halloween...[a] roller coaster ride. RT Book Reviews on Parasite (4 1/2 stars)
It's a well-grounded medical wariness that gets at the heart of the what the Parasitology series will be asking: What happens when the cure is worse than the disease? NPR Books on Parasite
Readers with strong stomachs will welcome this unusual take on the future. Kirkus Reviews on Parasite
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 on Parasite
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 on Parasite
A riveting near-future medical thriller that reads like the genetically-engineered love child of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton. John Joseph Adam on Parasite
