Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Be Aware: Republicans are Stupid, Racist"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The premise is great, alien 'crawlies' infecting the human populace. The ugly political rant that the author crowbars into everything, everywhere, was appalling.


    Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator is excellent, has a deep melodious voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I love dystopian novels, was so looking forward to it. But within 15 minutes, I learned that Republicans speak with Southern accents, are Cretin-stupid racist bigots spouting 'storybook' Bible tales, and that a Republican U.S. President doesn't believe in the alien invasion that is actually threatening the entire Earth, because...it isn't mentioned in the Bible, so it can't be true. The actual story should have been great, the sci-fi aspects are cleverly and believably done, the rush to save the world is gripping, and I could have been fascinated. But instead, I was appalled. White Christian heterosexual Republican Americans are cartoon-stupid war mongers, racists and half-wits. Mr. Sigler doesn't seem to recognize his own ugly bigotry.

    "poster child for how to turn a book into a trilogy"

    oh ouch, I am a fan of this author so this one hurt. The entire book could be brought down to two chapters and it would be pretty good. However it has taken first place on my list of books that are so obviously padded with meaningless diluge of words to make the book longer. it would have been no less entertaining if he would have wrote "words to take up space" 3000 times. Ouch is because this author is capable of so much better. oh lets not miss the 35 mentions of Trump Tower. I have to believe he was paid something for mentioning it so much. It felt like, ie They were on the 13th floor of the Trump Tower. The halls of the Trump Tower were empty as they made their way to the Trump Tower basement. Seriously Scott....WHY? Still two stars cuz I know he is talented.

    "Good enough...not great!"

    Pretty cool story; however, really stayed in the weeds. I wish the author has expanded the story. The possibility for additional storylines was limitless.

    "I'm glad the author didn't narrrate this one"

    Good book Series. This narrator is way better than the author doing it himself.
    Looking forward to more of his books.

    "Wow what an awesome Trilogy!!"

    Never give out 5 stars but the end to this awesome trilogy deserved it!! No main characters are safe during the whole series which makes it that much more thrilling! You grow with the characters and go mad with others! So much fun, gore, scares, sci-if and overall suspense I couldn't put any of them down. The 3rd book was probably the best and finished the series with a bang!! If your looking for books to read start with infected and get ready to be blown away!! I'll miss Perry and the rest of the gang!! Author does decent job narrating but the 3rd/final book has a professional and Phil Gigante really puts this final chapter into the epic zone!!

    "Triangles are back!!!"

    Firstly, I listened to the other books in the series on podcast where Scott Sigler does the narration. Sometimes he sounded a little crazy with the different voices but I grew to love it as he gave his characters the personality he wanted with their tone and pitch so when I listened to this, although it was still read well I felt a little detached from the characters because they weren't quite as I remembered them. That being said it was still nice to find out what happened to the world in the end and the characters we had come to love or hate from the previous books. It felt unnecessarily long to me but I'm still a fan. In conclusion it is well read but too long in my opinion.

    Shallow characters. Missing suspense masked by movie-like violence. Boring too...had to stop listening after half the book.

    "Geat Trilogy"

    I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. I do like this sort of end of the world disaster anyway. Wasn't to sure about the narration in the first couple of books but I got used to it (Authors should not narrate there own books, Leave it to the experts). Narration in the last book was excellent. Very well paced and written. Enjoy!!

    "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.
