Publisher Description

From New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant comes a vision of a decade in the future, where 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.
 
"A riveting near-future medical thriller that reads like the genetically-engineered love child of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton." —John Joseph Adams

Really good, but not as good...

This is a great beginning to a new Mira Grant series and I'm already excited about the next one. That said, the Newsflash trilogy is in my all time top 3 books/series and this book is missing something essential that those had in spades: I don't love any of these characters. The characters are well-rounded and well-developed, but missing the raw emotions of Shawn and Georgia and friends. I recommend this book, but would also suggest starting with the completed series first.

Loved it!

This book was truly amazing! I haven’t been able to read much since I had my daughter but I found it so good and so unable to put down that I made sure to find time to read it! Truly kept me on my toes and interested! Very well written! Def going to read the next in the series!

Couldn't Finish

I like the premise but book is so poorly written. Cries out for a competent editor.
