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 book is full of puppies and kittens and is a strong end to a complex and well written series. Fans of action horror with a kiss of science will love this book. The future dark overlord has lived up to his name.
Though I did enjoy Book 1 & 2 of Sigler's series, this book just didn't interest me as much. It was interesting enough to keep me listening, but at some points I had to force myself. The book seemed to jump around more, and I wasn't as invested in the characters.
it was different hearing this read by someone other that Scott, but I still enjoyed the ending of this awesome tale. I believe this would make one hell of a movie!
This is a perfect winding up of the infected trilogy, with imagination, real science, and deep, Spellbinding character development. If you have read the first two books and you like science fiction with more then a Smattering of horror but don't have to have zombies, this is most definitely for you. The narrator brings this book to life expertly and vividly write down to the difficult foreign accents. Thanks for reading.
