Publisher's Summary

Bishop is trapped deep inside Montana's Apex Valley along with his injured wife, a shotgun-wielding stranger named Colbrick, and a sneaking suspicion he's never making it back to Chicago. Things no man has seen before haunt the woods. Strange animal species creep behind pine trees, some of them with flashing red tags that blink faster and faster. Giant birds mimic the sound of humans and lord over the sky. Leaf-shaped creatures attack anything that moves and flash vivid colors across their glistening backs.

As Bishop and his companions scramble across the Montana wilderness, they find human remains and animal carcasses littering the woods. The small town of Elmore is empty, the windows broken and streaked with blood. Trout Bridge - their only way out - is blocked by abandoned cars, none that were inbound.

With the strange animal species closing in, Bishop realizes his group must take a stand. He's got a plan, and maybe they've got one last shot before the invasive species spread to the rest of the US.

    "Worth the credit."

    After buying several highly rated books and finding myself mind numbingly bored I was happy to have stumbled upon this on. I have sometimes mainstream and more often macabre or unusual tastes in books but I say give it a try. You may just find, like I did, that it was a good book

    "Exciting, thrilling, fast paced, great book!"

    Loved this book and can not wait to read more of this authors books! I really enjoyed the characters and discovering the story through the twists and turns of this page turner. I highly recommend this book. Listened to the audible version and was not disappointed by that either. Very well done.

    Story
    "its... written at least."

    this was... not great. the story is rather clumsy. the characters arent to great and off kilter most the time.

    evidently its possible to learn how to handle and shoot a weapon likr an expert just for holding it for a day, 6 limbs on a vertebrate is nothing special at all, and wont make biologists explode their own asses in shock and awe. the best thing to do in a survival situation full of unknown hostiles is to wander around blindly.

    this book is a syfy channel b movie at best. if you have a spare credit and NOTHING looks better, or its on sale for the 5 dollar range, maybe give it a go..

    "The Invasive is a great read!"

    I loved this book. The writing was tight and the story was original. In an industry where you see so many regurgitated storylines,it's great to see that there are still some writers with fresh ideas.
    If you like edge of your seat storytelling, a diverse assortment of vicious, predatory creatures, and a strong cast of characters you actually grow to care for, this book is for you. Enjoy!

    "Surprise book!! It was great, worth the credit!!"

    One particular horror genre I love is strange creatures causing gruesome deaths, add in a little sci-fi twist and I can't stop reading. "The Invasive" has all of this and more with great characters who you grow with and learn to love. What a nice surprise coming across this book!!

    "Good!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Invasive the most enjoyable?

    The characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bishop. He's very reasonable.


    What about Charles Constant’s performance did you like?

    Clear and of proper volume.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Seriously, What Was Up With That Bird-Thing?


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of swearing, graphic violence, and one brief (to the point of being even more pointless than most) scene, but other than that it's a great book.
