Overview

"Thanks to my popular Star Wars novels, I have become quite comfortable 'playing in someone else's sandbox' -- working in an established universe with familiar characters," writes prolific author Kevin J. Anderson. "In Star Wars, the action must be nonstop, with amazing planets, thrilling space dogfights, horrific monsters.... Working on 'The X-Files' is something else entirely -- a television show that has as its trademark a palpably creepy atmosphere."

Anderson has written spin-offs and continuations of many immensely popular science fiction series and composed and collaborated on many works of original fiction. There is barely a genre that Anderson hasn't explored, and his quality writing and boundless creativity gel with Chris Carter and the other creators of the ominously celebrated television series "The X-Files." Anderson, author of Ground Zero and Ruins, delivers his third book based on "The X-Files," the smoldering story Antibodies.

The disease-ravaged body of Dr. David Kennessy is found in the charred ruins of the federally funded DyMar genetic-research lab. As the FBI agents investigating the X-Files -- cases the bureau has deemed unsolvable -- Fox Mulder and Dana Scully pursue the truth wherever it leads, even into the labyrinthine corridors of the FBI. And beyond.

Just what was Dr. Kennessy up to before his mysterious death? It is very possible that a lethal, man-made virus has escaped. Can it be contained? Mulder and Scully stumble upon a startling discovery while investigating the doctor's death: The top-notch cancer researcher had been experimenting with highly dangerous technology, a man-made bio-machine that, in theory, can cure any disease and heal any wound. Driven by the promise of a miracle cure and the hope that he could save his leukemia-stricken son, Dr. Kennessy developed his immortality research. But now he is dead -- and when a second grisly corpse is discovered, mutilated from within, Mulder and Scully are faced with a harrowing question: Have the bio-machines, created to cure, learned instead to kill?

Scrambling for answers, the X-Files agents are confronted at every turn by faceless enemies with all the resources of the government at their command -- faceless enemies who have become regular adversaries in the X-Files series. As sinister forces close in from all sides, intent on seizing the secrets to immortality, Mulder and Scully fight to restore truth -- and save lives.

Even though it took me a year and a half to read this book, I was very impressed by it! It was excellent! I don't read often and usually don't finish books that don't keep my interest. If you have time, read this!

This book truely captured the X Files feeling. All of the characters were interesting, new and old. The way it touches up on Scully's cancer and other things that you would have to know was also very well used.
