Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, or a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life saving organs for a nominal fee.....and imagine what a company would do to monopolize that technology. On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, P.J. Colding leads a team of scientists who have discovered this holy grail of medicine. By reverse engineering the genomes of thousands of mammals, Colding's team has dialed back the evolutionary clock to re-create their common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A computer engineered living creature --- an animal whose organs can be permanently transplanted into anyone with zero chance of rejection. There's just one problem: these ancestors turn out not to be the docile herd animals Colding's team envisioned. Instead, Colding's work has given birth to something big, something evil. ......AND IT'S VERY, VERY HUNGRY!

Sci-fi horror is not my favorite genre, but I'm enjoying this a lot. Not all authors read their own work very well, but Sigler is quite good. He even does the voices of his characters, which I first found a little corny but it's growing on me.... Likewise the plot -- a first I thought it was sounding derivative but suddenly it changed, veering off in an entirely new direction. Lots of graphic violence, so not for kids, but much, much better than several audiobooks I paid money for. 4 1/2 stars..

Fantastic blend of sci-fi, action, & horror

Fun, fast, and furious- don't miss this one. Nice to finally have an sci-fi/horror story that doesn't rely on the supernatural. Check out Scott's other podiobooks: Earthcore and Infection.

The author has done an excellent job creating and orating a story that begins in a modern and beleivable setting then whirls you into a nightmarish hell on earth.All the while making you feel you are seeing and feeling everything like you are actually standing by these incredibly vulnerable yet courageous heroes. I have never enjoyed a story as much as this. I actually couldn't stand to see this end. Please tell me this wonderful storyteller has a million more books to come. I will certainly listen to each one.
