The second book in a duo about a parasitic type infections (first was Infected), unknown origin, unknown vector, unknown relation to other diseases. Interesting read - horror, yes, both on a grander scale of what it might be necessary to do when confronted with a problem of this magnitude, but also on a personal scale, of what it can do to you if you survive, and what it does to it's victims, and the people trying to save the world. Well done book with a fascinating way to show something different. Study in the human condition, and what is our breaking point, how fast do our ideals go out the window when confronted with reality. Some let them go fact - more pragmatic, other slowly, clinging to them until all hope is gone of keeping them. Only complaint is that the relationship between one of the good guys and the female doctor in charge was ruptured, and at the end back together as if nothing had happened. No real good explanation of how she came to terms with everything. Written y a man, so no true insight into the female psyche in that regard.
