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"
Powerfully written . . . an unforgettable central character.
"Dallas Morning News"
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 "bestselling author of "Deep Storm "and "Death Match
" Fraught with tension . . . "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" meets "The Hot Zone."
"Rocky Mountain News"
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
"
Riveting . . . even hardened genre fans will find themselves whimpering at each new revelation.
"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Horror mavens rejoice!" Infected" is a revelation -- a novel that lives up to its hype. From page one, the story of a mysterious smart-virus that turns its hosts into deadly drooling drones creeps up on a reader like the ratchet of a roller coaster climbing toward its inevitable crest. Sigler brings the folksy character detail of Stephen King, the conceptual panache of Clive Barker, and the oozing, shuddery pathologies of a David Cronenberg movie. Zombies, spies, conspiracies, and gallons of goo make this the fastest read in the west! Highest recommendation!"
Jay Bonansinga, national bestselling author of "Shattered, Twisted, Frozen," and "The Sinking of the Eastland"
"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
"Scott Sigler's" Infected" isa 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"
""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

"From the Hardcover edition.""

'Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...hard to put down' -- Independent 20080716 'Sigler is masterful at grabbing the reader by the throat and refusing to let go...INFECTED is a marvel of gonzo, in-your-face, up-to-the-minute terror.' -- Lincoln Child, author of Deep Storm 20080716 'Part Stephen King, part Chuck Palahniuk...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, author of The Judas Strain 20080716 'Sigler is the Richard Matheson of the 21st Century...smart and creepy, INFECTED is a flawless thinking-persons thriller. Bravo to a bold new talent!' -- Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Bad Moon Rising 20080716 'Even hardened genre fans will find themselves whimpering at each new revelation. This terrifying page-turner could be the author's breakout book.' -- Publisher's Weekly - Starred review 20080716 'From where I stand, Sigler is at the top of the tree' -- Jason Bradbury, BBC, on EarthCore 20080716 'This novel's got it all: cutting-edge science; a perfectly-realized setting; terror both plausible and profoundly unsettling. EarthCore is more exciting than a thriller has any right to be!' -- Lincoln Child on EarthCore 20080716 'Bad things happen to bad people in this book. Then they happen some more. Very. Bad. Things. Things that make you wonder just what sort of childhood the author must have lived through. No way I'm going caving with him anytime soon. Or letting him near knives in my presence.' -- Evo Terra, host of XM Satellite and FM syndicated radio show 'The Dragon Page' on EarthCore 20080716 'EarthCore is in-your-face, steel-tipped boot on your throat, speed-metal fiction. Nail-biting suspense and non-stop action breathe life into his debut novel' -- Tee Morris, co-author of Podcasting for Dummies 20080716 'The Hot Zone meets "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" as an unidentified "virus" sweeps America. It is as graphically horrid as Palahniuk and as compulsive as Stephen King' -- Bookseller 20080328 'Why then choose INFECTED over the latest cinematic thrillers? Because it packs more thrills and ingenious ideas into its 339 pages than Hollywood has managed in 100 years...imagine a genetic splice of The Last Boy Scout, Body Snatchers and Richard Matheson's Shrinking Man, and you're on the way to understanding the slack-jawed fun of INFECTED' -- SFX 20080801 'Gripping, pacy and often stomach-churningly violent...Sigler seems to have star potential' -- Guy Adams in The Independent 20080716 'Fast-paced and engaging...a compelling read and an exciting story well-told' -- Black Static 20080818

Great to see the Scott Sigler making the crossover from his "new media" podcasting roots into the traditional publishing arena.

An updated version of a story originally told as a serialised audio drama, Infected is a real page-turner. The plight of the central character, Perry, is not for the faint-hearted, but while you might feel squeamish about learning what happens next you also feel compelled to read on and discover how it all pans out. A difficult balance to strike in a novel, but one that has been expertly handled by the author.

Scott Sigler is definitely one to watch and I'm glad to learn that a sequel is already in progress.

This is a must-read, particularly for fans of the sci-fi and horror genres. A gripping story, combined with well-realised characters, I was hooked from beginning to end.

A word of warning though - this book is most certainly not for the faint-hearted or weak-stomached. If you can handle the gore Sigler dishes out, you're in for a great ride! Be sure to check out Sigler's other works, particularly his podcast novels - all superb and highly recommended.

Scott Sigler is one of the best authors around for that wonderful sci-fi, horror and comedy blend. His style is easy to read, has amazingly well rounded characters and all the science “stuff” is well explained, even if some is a little Alien!

Apparently there is a little room at AT&T that screens the phone lines for key words….and so the tracking begins.

Deputy Director of the CIA, Murray Longworth is a great character, with a complex history, just not very likeable but then when you have to do what he has to do, not sure I would be likable either.

Dew & Malcolm pick the short straw of being excellent field agents, again with some really great back stories, IMO this is what makes this an awesome novel and ultimately fantastic trilogy, each character is fleshed out, I truly felt a bond to these characters and missed and grieved for them as their stories played out.

The other main players are an epidemiologist, Margaret and her little sidekick, parasitologist, Amos. They are assigned their own Agent Clarence. Apart from all the betting and banter that goes on these three make a great team, which is seriously needed when you realise what has come to take a peek at Earth.

Are the characters a little cliché? Yes of course, but then wouldn’t bland characters be just that? Boring!

Scary Perry Dawson, what a man to pick for an alien invasion. Perry maybe scary for many reasons but thankfully he has his BFF Bill to keep his temper in check for him, Perry has his reasons for having anger management issues but at 6’ 4” and 268lbs you need discipline.

I'm very picky with my books, but this pleasantly surprised me. The story is original and unusual, interesting and I could not put it down. I finished it over a weekend, and started the second book not long after.

I'm impressed by the authors imagination, and it was at times very unsettling, and the book haunts me still by the way the storyteller have told the story. The characters are well thought through, interesting, and came to life in the book.

I loved this book, and the series have not let me down in any way. Very happy I gave it a go.

ok. I have been purchasing books off Amazon for years, but am very rarely moved by a book to submit a review. This book is one of those occassions.
This title is the first I have read by Scott Sigler and while not a 'horror' fan, I found this book almost unputdownable (if there is such a word!). Itis an excellent read, which keeps you on tenderhooks all the way through. I hope a sequel is planned ...

By Nick Brett TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 July 2008
Format: Paperback
Well, a bit of a diversion from my usual reading matter. This is a blend of thriller, sci-fi and horror with a lot of gore and black humour thrown in.

Anyway, mysterious spores turn into triangular lumps on people and gradually turn their victims into something psychotic.

Government agents rush to contain and understand the nature of the attack while we watch in gory detail as one of the victims undertakes a personal battle with his infestations.

This is probably more horror then anything else - to me a mix of early James Herbert meets the X Files and doesn't really pretend to be anything other then pulp fiction. So if you want a quick blast of gore and black humour then this might be for you, especially if you set your expectations at the right level.

Three stars as it is quite entertaining for what it is, but this is no life changing book that you will recommend to your friends, more of a guilty reading secret!
