Symbiont by Mira Grant // Parasitology #2
The SymboGen parasites were created to relieve humanity of disease and sickness. But the implants in the majority of the world’s population began attacking their hosts, turning them into a ravenous horde.
Panic spreads as these predators begin to take over the streets. In the chaos, Sale and her companions must discover how the parasites are taking over their hosts – and how they can be stopped.
Curling up with supplies for my reading today. 😀 The window is one of my favourite places to read. It’s no window seat but the sill is large enough for me to keep all sorts of things close at hand!
Orbit has announced they have acquired seven new books from Mira Grant!! I am so excited you guys! SEVEN BOOKS.
Mira Grant (a pseudonym of Seanan McGuire) created one of my very favourite zombie worlds in the Newsflesh trilogy (Feed, Deadline and Blackout). If you’ve seen my Goodreads shelves, you’ll notice this series is one of the few I have given 5 stars. This particular zombie apocalypse hits the USA in the summer of 2014 so we should probably all be on the look out for shambling corpses trying to nom our foreheads in the next couple of months. 😉
As Orbit’s announcement says, out of the seven books there will be one novel and four novellas set in the world of Newsflesh. There are already three novellas out besides the trilogy – one of which is set in Australia which is awesome and I am totally unbiased about.
There is also a third book coming in Grant’s latest series ‘Parasitology’. I have the first book ‘Parasite’ waiting for me on one of my bookcases so I’ll let you know what I think about it ASAP. The seventh book will be a new novel which Orbit and Grant only say “will be an adventure!” but I’m pretty stoked for more of anything from Mira Grant!
If you haven’t read any of Mira Grant’s books I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Feed!
