    Description

    “The ancestors are out there…you have to believe me.”

    From acclaimed author Scott Sigler—New York Times best-selling creator of Infected and Contagious—comes a tale of genetic experimentation’s worst nightmare come true.

    Every five minutes, a transplant candidate dies while waiting for a heart, a liver, a kidney. Imagine a technology that could provide those life-saving transplant organs for a nominal fee...and imagine what a company would do to get a monopoly on that technology.

    On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, P. J. Colding leads a group of geneticists 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 humankind’s common ancestor. The method? Illegal. The result? A computer-engineered living creature, an animal whose organs can be implanted in any person, and with no chance of transplant rejection.

    There's just one problem: these ancestors are not the docile herd animals that Colding's team envisioned. Instead, Colding’s work has given birth to something big, something evil.

    With these killer creatures on the prowl, Colding and the woman he loves must fight to survive — even as government agents close in to shut the project down, and the deep-pocketed company backing this research proves to have its own cold-blooded agenda.

    As the creators become the prey in the ultimate battle for survival, Scott Sigler takes listeners on the ultimate thrill-ride—and offers a chilling cautionary account of what can happen when hubris, greed, and madness drive scientific experimentation past the brink of reason.

    Commentaires

    “A tremendously entertaining horror novel…the premise is thought-provoking; Sigler populates the novel with a lively cast of characters (unlike many thrillers, the heroes are as interesting as the villains), and the action is virtually nonstop—and, at times, quite graphic. If you combined Michael Crichton’s scientific exploration with Matthew Reilly’s lightning-fast pace and colorful characters, you might get something that feels like this book, which, incidentally, would make a great movie.” ( Booklist)

    Wow Scott you did it again, home run!!!!

    Scott Sigler is my favorite author but I still rate him hard if I don't like something. Well Scott knocked this one out of the park!!!!! This book is one of my favorite books that he has done so far. The science is awesome. The way he builds these characters is better. The action and suspense reaches even higher. And the overall story telling of this book is just fabulous!!! Well done Scott, I can't wait to hear your next book which ever it may be.

    FDO never disappoints!

    It has been a few years since I read this one and... While I remembered that is was great - I forgot just how amazing it is!

    I have listened to all of Scott Sigler's books through the years as he released them free as serialized podcasts and another, free platform as well.
    Ray Porter does a great job on the ones he performs but I really enjoy the ones where Sigler reads them just as much if not more.
    My one bit of advice would be to listen to a sample first to see if you like the author's narration because some really don't.
    I have been purchasing them through Audible because I enjoy the way they are organized and, mainly, I want to support Scott Sigler - FDO!

    Love this book

    Fast paced lots of action and love the science behind the story. My only complaints was I kept think about the perry dosy and the other characters from The infected books and pooki from nocturnal.

    Ancestor

    Mr Sigler is consistent in his ability to keep you wanting more and more. I have read a number of his books already and I am always amazed by his ability to make reader just keep going and not putting it down! I WILL be a life long fan.
