Just finished reading the two books, infected, and contagious. They are amazing, by scott siegler. Great read. Yeah, some bad language, but the story moves along at a brisk pace, and the little creatures talk.
As an author, I am just amazed at the book. Here are talking blue triangles, not very believable, yet I stayed up two nights in a row to finish the first book. Only went to sleep when it thought I was too tired to do the book justice. Same for the sequel, which I promptly went to the library to get. great storyline, following the tested and true arc of things just keep getting worse. Cranks up the intensity.
Now, I'm rereading a Dexter novel. The books are what the TV series is based on, but with a far different plot. And the writing, is just wonderful. Great pacing. Not exactly a lovable character, yet (dex is a serial killer after all) yet the book is so well written, moves along briskly, a lot of side narration ( the main character talks about himself.) it's just a wonderful read. I'm going to try and find the rest of the series in the library, or just buy them cheap.
