Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remarkable in its world-spanning scope, breathtaking in its visionary intensity, THE BRIDGE is an epic novel of human transformation and destiny that will rank in the classic tradition of Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End and Octavia E. Butler's Dawn.

Somewhere in the cosmos, inquisitive, utterly unhuman aliens reach out, seeking intelligent life, sending greetings and knowledge encrypted within microscopic packets of genetic data. Their information takes on the form of a virus designed to bridge worlds through understanding. But its creators, the alien Kasarans, do not know that their communication might kill...

For when it reaches Earth, the Kasaran virus can't completely adapt to human biology. Instead, it transforms into a plague called the Pandemic that annihilates billions of humans at random.

And when the Pandemic ends, the Earth is changed forever...

Synopsis:

An alien society sends a deadly virus to Earth, leaving in its wake genetically altered humans who wish to make contact with the aliens. But another group of survivors, immune to the virus, is angry, confused, and sure that any attempts to contact the aliens will mean certain doom.
