The ants go marching, now to paperback. Invasive is now out in mass market format, and it’s a book about ants, anxiety, the future, dangerous billionaires, one angry spider, and it also contains a free trip to Hawaii.*
* but the ants also get to go to Hawaii, sorry
If you’d rather a more official description:
On an isolated island in the middle of the Pacific, a team of scientists is employed by a charismatic billionaire hoping to change the world through cutting-edge research.
In a small cabin on a remote lake in the middle of the Adirondacks, FBI futurist Hannah Stander confronts a barely recognizable human body—one skinned alive by thousands of genetically engineered ants.
Hannah’s investigation ultimately leads her to Kohole Atoll. Though the team there vehemently denies any connection to the body, the more Hannah studies the group, the more she suspects their work has sinister applications. And the more it looks like no one is getting off the island alive.
Who said nice things about it? Lots of folks!
In a starred review, Kirkus said:
“Think Thomas Harris’ Will Graham and Clarice Starling rolled into one and pitched on the knife’s edge of a scenario that makes Jurassic Park look like a carnival ride.”
Publishers Weekly said:
“Fans of Michael Crichton will feel right at home.”
The Washington Post said:
“Wendig does an impeccable job blending fact and fiction as he describes invasive species and insects being used as biological weapons. This is a propulsive tale that also examines our interaction with — and manipulation of — the natural world.”
The ants said:
“chitter swarm click clicky chitter swarm hey a dead bird let’s eat it”
You should to get it, because if nobody buys my books I die writhing in the abyss!
The book is also available in e-book format (Kobo, iTunes, Google Play, plus the links above), and audio (narrated by the impeccable Xe Sands). I’ll also have more Invasive news as the days go on — I’ll share when I have a green light to share.
Also, if you like it, please tell others, and leave a nice review somewhere.
