Publisher Description

A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.
We owe our good health to a humble parasite -- a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the Intestinal Bodyguard worm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system -- even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.
But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives . . . and will do anything to get them.

Customer Reviews

RyanTheeRed ,

Wish I had read a few of the bad reviews first

I liked the idea of this book, and there are a lot of glowing reviews floating around. That made the book even more disappointing. I've always hated the plot device of withheld information, and this book uses massive amounts of that plot device. By Chapter 16, I hated every character in the book, and wished they would all get eaten. If you like hate-reading, this is the book for you. If you want a well crafted story with at least one likeable character, look elsewhere.
