Invasive Species

( 9 )

Overview

There can only be one dominant life form on Earth.

In the remote African wilderness, a rainforest is dying. But something else has come to life: A newly evolved predator that has survived the depredations of mankind, only to emerge from its natural habitat faster, stronger, and deadlier than anything humanity has ever faced.

And it is no longer man.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“Wallace’s unsettling, mind-bending apocalyptic novel chillingly dives into what happens when the balance of the world is disrupted and an invasive species grabs the reins. Terrifying and, yes, poetic, this is a novel that gets under your skin with an 'it could happen here' kind of chilling grace.”
—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and Is This Tomorrow

Invasive Species cost me a perfectly good night’s sleep… I hope Wallace carries a screenplay of Invasive Species in his hip pocket; he’s going to need it.”
—Bill Ransom, author of Jaguar

“If Wells’s Martians scared you, or the Body Snatchers, or the Alien films, you might want to read this one under the bed. Brilliant.”
—Jack McDevitt, Nebula Award-winning author of Starhawk

“Joseph Wallace re-births an ancient terror with creepy, pulse-pounding plausibility. His tale is just a few mutations away from coming true.”—David Brin, author of Existence

    A thought-provoking scenario....could it happen?

    Great imagination, well-developed characters, thought-provoking, well written story. From the jungles of Africa to New York City, an evolutionary "what if." Read it.

    Good

    Good read, but did bog down in a few places. Would be nice if the sample actually included part of the story and not just the table of contents.

    Author notes, Acknowledgements, Table of Contents. Oh my!

    It can't take too much writing skill to write a book better than the table of contents. Sample is useless.
