I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy and patiently waited for this final novel to complete the set. It was definitely worth the wait. The first two books, Infected and Contagious, left me satisfied as to how the story ended but left me anticipating what might come next. I don't really know how the culmination of the story could have been done better. The story and character continuity was fantastic, and everything logically and carefully built to the events in this book. Exci ...more

While I enjoyed the third—and I assume last—book in the Infected series, this book wasn't as tightly written and didn't pack the same punch as Infected and Contagious. It started out great but seem to lose steam towards the end, with one of those horror book endings I find somewhat generic.

Margaret Montoya is called on once again to save the world from an alien infection invasion, which this time tries three hopefully fool proof ways to end civilization: some humans host the triangles,

Triangles…Not just for breakfast anymore. There’s a new deadly alien inspired biological virus in town – Extenction Puffs.

Now, some of our old friends including, Otto & Montoya, fresh from recently saving the world, will be called upon once again to try and come up with a solution for the destroyed Orbitals final attempt to wipe out the human race. It’s really hitting the fan now, the stakes cannot be any higher, and time is running short.

A fitting conclusion to a seriously great series from

Margaret Montoya saved the world from aliens in Contagious, but the decision she made killed many and the lives lost still weigh heavily on her.
Clarence Otto, Margaret's husband, has watched her wither away, no longer the confident woman he once new, taking her abuse, until he decides to call it quits.
Margaret's barely able to digest his words when the phone rings and Clarence and Margaret are pulled back into a situation they both thought was over and done.

Outstanding conclusion to an awesome series.
I couldn't get enough of this book.
I hope Sigler writes more like it very soon.
Podcast novelist (and self-proclaimed future dark overlord) Scott Sigler burst onto the horror scene a couple of years ago Infected. If you've read (or listened to) Sigler's original novel, I need only say two words to make you shudder involuntarily -- chicken scissors.

With that moment, Sigler created something iconic, memorable and utterly horrifying. And it feels like in many ways, Sigler has been chasing that moment, trying to find that same horrific peak that had this reader glued to the pag

I became a fan of Mr. Sigler's when I first discovered his book Infected. This book was like a new beginning to creepy crawly that the movie, Arachnophobia gave to me. The movie made me check the bathroom toilet before sitting down and Infected had me checking myself in the mirror to make sure that I did not find anything that did not belong. It kept me engrossed in the book and I could not get enough of it like an addict. I knew that Mr. Sigler was a force to be reckoned with. So when I saw his ...more

Pandemic by Scott Sigler is the third and final book in his Infected trilogy. This is a satisfying, highly recommended conclusion to the science fiction/horror series started in Infected and Contagious.

After the first two books I wasn't sure exactly what direction Sigler could possibly take to bring this series to a conclusion. Although Sigler has a prologue to summarize the story so far for readers it doesn't really do justice to everything we've all been through to reach this point. I never wo

I am going to die before this book comes out! First it was October, now it's January! Someone wake me up in January, I'm hibernating. I can't wait that long, really I can't. I'll blame the editors, it's always the editors...maybe, probably.

On the plus side, I lurve the cover.

It has taken Scott Sigler quite a bit of time to finish out his Infected series.  The first two novel in the series, Infected and Contagious, were released in 2008 and I reviewed the audiobook version of both around the same time (here and here). The final volume in Sigler's series, Pandemic, was released almost 5 years since I reviewed Contagious. I didn't go back and take a look at the previous two volumes before jumping into Pandemic; a fact which made someone leery going into this novel. Tha ...more
