Her architectural husband Brad Morris mentioned that the hollow leg bones on big dinosaurs seems from an engineering perspective impossible thinking about it the pregnant Jennifer begins to theorize that perhaps an external organism attacked the mallow. However, her opportunity to prove her theory goes wrong with the entire paleontology team dead, but before dying Jennifer manages to call Brad to save their child. --- Several years later, pandemic destruction leaves few survivors. Brad and his son William meet a few other survivors as they make their way to sanctuary. Shannon, Jason, Nancy, her son Tim and her sister Cindy, and Trick stay alive while watching loved ones die horribly. Corpses are everywhere. None understand why they are the chosen to live when others died so horribly. In common they share a genetic mutation that has allowed them to become the survivors of the malady. The world they knew is gone and no longer safe for middle class people. One more death occurs while strange psychic powers blossom. The human SPECIES has taken the next Darwinian step of survival of the fittest. --- Michael McBride provides a fabulous end of the world thriller that grabs the attention of the audience from the moment of the initial tragedy and never gives readers a moment to catch their breaths until the final tragedy occurs. The action-packed story line is at first difficult to follow as several subplots involving the survivors occur, but that also enables fans to meet the key players and sense the big picture scope of the calamity as well feel the impact on the shocked individuals. Book one of the SPECIES trilogy is a winner that will have fans seeking out the next tale, SPECIES: THE HIVE. --- Harriet Klausner
I will start by saying that this book truly creeped me out. It had me hooked from the first page. Michael Mcbride knows how to write horror. I still cant believe how good this book really was. I read a lot of horror novels but very rarely do I ever get the creeps. Species gave them to me from start to finish. The story is original and the characters are as well developed as any story as I have ever read. The suspense was the best part though. It was unbelievable. It will grab you by your throat and wont let go. The only complaint I had was that is was to short, and it left you hanging, but I recently found out that it is going to be part of a trilogy. I cant wait for the next installment. To whoever is reading this; if you like horror or sci-fi novels don't waste anymore time. BUY THIS BOOK NOW. I can promise you that you will not be sorry. Mr. Mcbride you got me hooked and wanting more
