BOOK 3 IN THE UNIT 51 TRILOGY
In a research hangar in Virginia, a Unit 51 team studies an ancient but long-dormant virus that can transform human physiology—and turn it into something else. . .
In the Amazon rainforest, a newly evolving life form known as Subject Z acquires the ability to think conceptually, build elaborate traps, create new carriers—and spawn a new race . . .
In Mexico and Turkey, the men and women of Unit 51 race to uncover a global link between the mutations: a connection as ancient as the oldest tombs on earth—and as alien and unknowable as the universe itself. But time is running out. The infected are growing in number. And the nightmare is going viral.
“McBride’s fragmentary style splatters words, cultural references, and body parts across the pages and never hits the brakes.” —Publishers Weekly
“Michael McBride is one of those authors I never get tired of reading. It still amazes me how he successfully incorporates unknown phenomena, mysterious prophecies and an unlimited amount of terrifying species in each book.” —Horror Bookworm Reviews
“What a great series… This book has everything in it and it fits together perfectly, including a few shocks and surprises. McBride has such a gift with words, all of his books just seem to suck you into the action. I HIGHLY recommend this series.” —Amazon Reviewer
