Reviews

An incredible, disturbingly plausible tale of what happens to a world where medical treatments have minds of their own
i09.com
Existing in a unique space somewhere between medical thriller, psychological science fiction and body horror, Parasite is a properly chilling read
THE ELOQUENT PAGE
The most readable, wittily written - and even charming zombie thriller in years
MORNING STAR
A creepy spine-tingler of a medical thriller
Charles Stross
Parasite is believable, disturbing and only the beginning . . . The distrubingly realistic plot, coupled with interspersed events of hostility from the infected, make for a suspense ridden read
SciFiNow
Interesting, morally ambiguous characters and some genuinely unexpected plot developments . . lives up to its intriguing premise
THE LIST
A riveting near-future medical thriller that reads like the genetically-engineered love child of Robin Cook and Michael Crichton
John Joseph Adams
Parasite is a thoroughly enjoyable nightmare
SUNDAY SPORT
So tense that I sometimes forgot to breathe
