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.

I really enjoyed the story and the performance. Felt like i was watching a Si-fi film. Very detailed descriptions.
Very cool spin on the Zombie genre! The narrator was amazing! And it was partially Chicago based. So, I highly recommend this book.
I like Scott's voice acting better, this guys seems to get a little overly dramatic, but the story is great and definitely required reading if you have read the first two books in the series.
I'm not that into Sigler's young adult book but this entire series has been very satisfying. The action was great the horror elements had great impact but I would really like to note that Sigler's does the best job of any action or horror writer on getting some fairly technical science to not only be applied realistically but to be integral to moving the plot forward.
All in all great book.
Very good book. I loved all three books Infected, Contagious, and this one. I would love to see another book contunue the story line. I did not want the book to end.
Adequate ending to the overall awesome infected series. As a whole it is a great listen, worth your time. This is the weakest entry, however it manages to end the series logically. Overall I applaud this author for sticking to his code and internal logic no matter what, but nothing here can make up for what was lost at the end of the second book. It feels mostly like something he had to write to finish the story
Sigler's a great story teller and he's fun to listen to as well. I found first 2 books years ago &... Awe Perry... I miss him already... You really get involved with the characters.
