Scott Sigler's Infected shocked listeners with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one man's desperate fight for sanity and survival, as "Scary" Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogen's early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the listener experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm.
And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razor's edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares.
To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero-a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she's a monster - a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil.
All Margaret knows is that she's broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was.
But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload - a soda can-sized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind.
That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent...until now.
Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

This was a great Sci fi story, very realistic with good transitions between points of view to show you the scope of the events. the narrator did a good job of brining it to life.
Overall the book was ok, but the ending of the previous book would have been a much more satisfactory ending. It felt drug out and villainized some characters that it didn't really need to.
Great book and great finish to the series. Scott gives so much of his work away for ftee. Everyone who has listened to one of his free podcast books should go out and buy one of his books or audio books. He never disappoints.
It's a good book don't get me wrong but something about it was a bit off. I have been a scott sigler fan for years originally starting with his podcast of him reading his stories to his fans. I started listening when he was reading infected and was instantly hooked. over the years I went through all the books he wrote and enjoyed all of them to the point that when there was nothing left I started over. When this book was announced I thought awesome something to add to the great library. when listening to this book, it felt like it lacked something. overall I thought that pandemic was a very good book but will probably be a one and done for me.
Have taken the ride since the first book in the series, this was the most satisfying conclusion to a long journey. It does not disappoint. Strap in and get ready for a thrill ride.
I got through it, but the writing is a little stiff and stereotypical. Interesting premise. I'll pass on the next one.
"Superb conclusion to the trilogy."
Infected, Contagious, Pandemic.......Have enjoyed this trilogy a lot, was really made for Audio. Have listened to others by this Author too which were also great. Can be pretty Gory at times, but its a gory subject and is Horror / Sci Fi. Very memorable Characters and great story.
