Contagion is a stunning (and I mean STUNNING!) book, set in the future, on a mysterious planet.
There are many things I loved (scratch that, adored!) about it.
The first one would be cast of characters - both the ones I cared about and the one I hated from the bottom of the heartless part of my soul - the author let them all tell us their story and the switch between them gave the book a sense of urgency and an intensity one can usually find in movies.

I loved every moment of Contagion. I'm sure book 2 will be as great as book 1

I am quite sure this will work perfectly for a certain kind of reader. Contagion is a very, very fast-paced sci-fi horror novel about a plague and several deaths.

But it didn’t give me the same punch I wanted, and that cliffhanger ending on a thriller just does not work for me.
I’m tired and behind on reviews, so here’s a quick rundown of stuff I l ...more
A distress call leads a small band of company employees to the far reaches of space in order to help, if that's even still an option, another mining operation. If help is out of the equation, they are to search for survivors. The crew has ties to the planet, though part of the intrigue is piecing together WHY they have ties, and what it will mean for this tiny band of would be rescuers.
The pace is fast and the first half of the story keeps you guessing. It's a mix of murder mystery and space ho ...more
CONTAGION perfectly toes the line between science fiction thriller and horror. I couldn't stop reading.

This book was so cool and is the sci-if thriller I hoped it would be!
If you loved the Illuminae files (particularly Gemina), Alien, Life and Even Horizon I highly recommend this!
