Subhuman by Michael McBride

At a research station in Antarctica, five of the world’s top scientists have been brought together to solve one of the greatest mysteries in human history. Their subject, however, is anything but human . . .
Deep beneath the ice, the submerged ruins of a lost civilization hold the key to the strange mutations that each scientist has encountered across the globe: A misshapen skull in Russia. The grotesque carvings of a lost race in Peru. The mummified remains of a humanoid monstrosity in Egypt . . .
When a series of sound waves trigger the ancient organisms, a new kind of evolution begins. Latching onto a human host—crossbreeding with human DNA—a long-extinct life form is reborn. Its kind has not walked the earth for thousands of years. Its instincts are fiercer, more savage, than any predator alive. And its prey are the scientists who unleashed it, the humans who spawned it, and the tender living flesh on which it feeds . . .
Praise for Michael McBride
“A fast-paced and frightening ride. Highly recommended for fans of creature horror and the thrillers of Michael Crichton.”—The Horror Review on PREDATORY INSTINCT
“McBride writes with the perfect mixture of suspense and horror that keeps the reader on edge.” —Examiner

“This novel is for everyone who’s still a little scared of the dark . . . a very good sci-fi/thriller; I’ll read whatever McBride writes next.” 
—Ken Raymond, The Oklahoman on

In Queen Muad Land, Antarctica a new discovery has been made. Hollis Richards and Will Connor start putting together a group of scientists to work on this discovery. Together they find an unknown creature/thing. They team works together as a family to come up with possible scenarios for the discovery. But things go terribly wrong and the scientists go from research to running for their lives. One test has awakened the creature and it is going to join with the humans to create something never seen before. The scientists have gone from the top of the food chain to food for a creature that is faster and more powerful than anything on Earth. Will they stop it? Subhuman reminds me of James Rollins. You have a rich entrepreneur that really wants to help the world. You have a huge case of scientists that are working together to unlock the secrets of the discovery. Now the story bounces between the different scientists so this story does get rather expanded and slows down. The first portion of the story revolves around the science and the discovery. But when the creatures come out to play things go from bad to worse quickly. Then it becomes a race to get away from the creatures that are going to destroy the scientists in the worst way possible. Classic horror story that will keep you on the edge of you seat hoping they stop the creature or if they are all going to die. This is the first in a series so I am curious to see where it goes from here. This is a great horror thriller that will keep you turning pages late in the night. I received Subhuman from Silver Dagger Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
