Publisher's Summary

Scott Sigler's Infected shocked listeners with a visceral, up-close account of physical metamorphosis and one man's desperate fight for sanity and survival, as "Scary" Perry Dawsey suffered the impact of an alien pathogen's early attempts at mass extinction. In the sequel Contagious, Sigler pulled back the camera and let the listener experience the frantic national response to this growing cataclysm.

And now in Pandemic, the entire human race balances on the razor's edge of annihilation, beset by an enemy that turns our own bodies against us, that changes normal people into psychopaths or transforms them into nightmares.

To some, Doctor Margaret Montoya is a hero-a brilliant scientist who saved the human race from an alien intelligence determined to exterminate all of humanity. To others, she's a monster - a mass murderer single-handedly responsible for the worst atrocity ever to take place on American soil.

All Margaret knows is that she's broken. The blood of a million deaths is on her hands. Guilt and nightmares have turned her into a shut-in, too mired in self-hatred even to salvage her marriage, let alone be the warrior she once was.

But she is about to be called into action again. Because before the murderous intelligence was destroyed, it launched one last payload - a soda can-sized container filled with deadly microorganisms that make humans feed upon their own kind.

That harmless-looking container has languished a thousand feet below the surface of Lake Michigan, undisturbed and impotent...until now.

Part Cthulhu epic, part zombie apocalypse and part blockbuster alien-invasion tale, Pandemic completes the Infected trilogy and sets a new high-water mark in the world of horror fiction.

exquisite.

I was reluctant to listen to this audiobook, mainly because Scott Sigler himself was not narrator. but and I looked or listened past that if I may. the man did a great job. what an amazing conclusion to one of my personal favorite series. Mr sigler really has a way of slapping you in the feels with a gut wrenching feeling of; how the hell are they going to get out of this one. thank you Mr sigler and audible for helping me through yet another Monday.

All hail the FDO Scott Sigler.

Infected was my first Scott Sigler novel and I've been hooked ever since. Amazing writing and story telling, not just in these stories but in all his work. Scott is an awesome and talented person. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Yet another great Sigler story.

Loved the book. Lots of "driveway moments" where you just can't get out of the car. Sigler may be where GRRM learned to kill anyone and everyone though!

hard to stomach, but very well told

The whole trilogy is very entertaining. At times it's quite foul, disgusting, disturbing, stomach turning, vomitous…but overall entertaining and well paced.
I do cringe at the sight of a sign post.
Scott Sigler ruined BBQ for me as soundly as Training Day put me off chunky peanut butter for life.

Loved it!

I truly enjoy Scott Sigler's books. This final book in the series is predictable yet still enjoyable. I wish Mr. Sigler would have read this one as with the others but still narrated very well.

I will never look at Triangles the same again

Would you consider the audio edition of Pandemic to be better than the print version?

I am a fan of the audiobooks. Due to my schedule and on the road a lot.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Margaret throughout the series. And she steps out more fully as a character in the third book.

Have you listened to any of Phil Gigante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Phil Gigante is one of my favorite narrators. Although Scott Sigler did the narration on books one and two in this trilogy, I had no problem with character identification in this book.

Any additional comments?

This trilogy grabs you and takes off like a rocket, but definitely should be read in order. 4 STARS

PUT YOUR PITY PARY TO BED

SPANK MY A SS AND CALL ME SALLY
All books by Scott Sigler are entertaining. This is my fifth, I have yet to be disappointed. This third book in the trilogy was written five years after the first two. The first two were written before the Zombie craze and have no Zombies. This book has sort of Zombies and is a lot better than book 1 and 2, of which both, were good. Reading book one and two is not necessary to enjoying this book.

THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO CHANGE
The Infected, remember their pasts when they were human. Some are very smart, some are strong, some are fast and none are rotting. They do eat humans. This is closer to Invasion of The Body Snatchers than a zombie thriller. Sigler must not like the Midwest, as he nuked Detroit in the last book and destroyed Chicago in this one. This book has science and explains how and why, more than other books of this type. It also has a little character development and some nasty twists and some gory stuff.

A fitting end for an amazing series.

After putting this book down for a very long time, I picked it up again and I'm really glad I did.

One thing Scott Sigler does better than anyone else is put that knot in your stomach. That sinking feeling that "it isn't going to work out." That we're doomed. That bad things happen. That even main characters are expendable at all times.

This book starts out really slow and uncomfortable, which was why I put it down, but when you get into the story you realize how important those first few chapters are to the story. Without giving too much away, you spend most of this book going "Jesus Christ, how are they going to get out of this one?" Or "Oh my God, humanity is doomed." The lightbulb moments when scientists make progress make you go "Oh my God! We have hope!" You really feel invested in the whole story.

I loved this book way more than I thought I would initially. It might be my favorite in the series, the entirety of which is absolutely 100% worth reading if you haven't already.

Also worthy of note: That this is more "produced" than a typical audiobook made it so much more fun. I'm just wondering why if they were going to put all that effort into voices and modulating them, why not have a woman read the female parts?

Other than that, this one is a must-read and a must-listen!
