Publisher Comments:

A terrifying thriller that will crawl beneath your skin . . . and leave fresh blood on every page.

A mysterious disease is turning thousands of ordinary Americans into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, their own families, and even themselves. And one morning, ex-football star Perry Dawsey awakens to find mysterious welts growing all over his body. Soon Perry finds himself acting and thinking strangely, hearing voices, fighting uncontrollable rage . . . he is infected. Worse, the disease wants something from him, something that could alter the fate of the human race.

Review:

"In Sigler's riveting horror thriller, alien seeds from outer space infect a number of unlucky humans, who develop some unusual symptoms — itchy, blue triangular growths on their skin — that eventually result in the carriers becoming screaming, homicidal maniacs. CIA agent Dew Phillips must find out why these formerly docile citizens are running amok, aided by Margaret Montoya, a Centers for Disease Control epidemiologist, who reported the first of the strange cases. One of the infected, former football player Perry Dawsey, doesn't take any crap from anybody, not even the aliens residing in his body. Sigler (Ancestor) leads the reader from one startling detail to the next — the creatures learn to speak (feed us we hungry); they grow little black eyes — until even hardened genre fans will find themselves whimpering at each new revelation. This terrifying page-turner could be the author's breakout book, fueled by an extensive online podcast campaign." Publishers Weekly (Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier, Inc.)

Review:

"Scott Sigler's Infected is a bucking pulp pony that throws you this way and that, and just when you think you've got your balance, that ole pony bucks the other way. All in all, one hell of an exhilarating ride, and highly recommended." Joe R. Lansdale, World Horror Convention Grand Master and six-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bubba Ho-Tep and Lost Echoes

Review:

"Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk, Infected blends science fiction and horror into a pulpy masterpiece of action, terror, and suspense. Three recommendations: don't read it at night, or just after you've eaten a full meal, or if you're weak of heart. You've been warned!" James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Judas Strain and Black Order

Review:

"Powerfully written...an unforgettable central character." Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Sigler is masterful at grabbing the reader by the throat and refusing to let go. Just when I thought I knew what abyss he was leading me across, he knocked the bridge out from under...I think I screamed the whole way down...Infected is a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror." Lincoln Child, New York Times estselling author of Deep Storm and Death Match

Review:

"Fraught with tension...Invasion of the Body Snatchers meets The Hot Zone." Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"Sigler is the Richard Matheson of the 21st Century — smart and creepy, Infected is a flawless thinking-person’s thriller. Bravo to a bold new talent!" Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bad Moon Rising and Ghost Road Blues

Review:

"Sigler has a unique talent for keeping readers on the edge of their seats; I absolutely had to know what was going to happen next. Infected is full of mayhem, action, and gore — and you won’t be able to put it down." Dave Wellington, author of 13 Bullets and the Monster Island trilogy

Review:

"Infected is as unnerving as a scream in a morgue…a breakout novel that gets under your skin. If the voice in your head is Sigler's, you're locked in for a very scary night." E.E. Knight

Synopsis:

The world's most successful podcasting author leaps from Internet sensation to superstar novelist with this no-holds-barred tale about a bioengineered parasite infecting humanity.

I am not a fan of thrillers or gore but by the time I realized what I'd gotten myself into with this series I was already too invested to put the book down and kept reading.

Blood aside I was impressed with how well the book was written from such distinct characters that felt real to the structure that made me want to keep reading. I appreciate that the characters are at times simply characters, not flat props trying to hold the story together or a heavy handed anti-hero statement in the plot, but a depiction of people in terrible scenarios doing terrible things.

And frankly I think this is how more Doctor Who episodes should end - it was wrapped up enough I felt like I could sanely sleep but enough interest I knew I'd find the rest of the books.

Infected is a great novel with short chapters that capture the readers into a part X-files, Fringe, and Stephen King feel for a mysterious infection that evolves in human beings. Characters are slowly developed in the novel and brief enough to keep the reader guessing as their important role in unraveling the mystery behind the blue triangles. Scott Sigler has stepped up his idea from online to on pages in this novel and can't wait to read Contagion. If I could add a half more star, it would be rated 4 and a half.
