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
I loved Bowan's other series so I was expecting to really like this one too. I tried several times though to listen to the audiobook and couldn't get into the narrator so I ended up just reading it. It was fairly entertaining once I finally got into it which actually happened when Coen came into the picture. He was definitely my favorite character of the bunch.
Even though this book didn't produce any overwhelming emotions or anything from me, I'm dying to read the next book just to ...more
CONTAGION perfectly toes the line between science fiction thriller and horror. I couldn't stop reading.
From the very moment I laid eyes on the premise of this story, I knew it was going to be a good read! A mixture of horror and spacey sci-fi was just what I was looking for, and in return, I got a whole lot more than I initially anticipated.
Contagion starts with a bang and keeps going with a quick and unrelenting pace right up until the finale! It is non-stop action from the get go, and even the slower moments are just a way to pause before building up the thrill and suspense again.

Contagion fits in that nice little YA scifi horror niche that I'm sure there are many fans of. I actually really love this type of story where the protagonists need to find the mystery of some sort of disease or a weird alien species and stop it before everyone in the crew dies.
I thought Bowman did an excellent job of pacing out the story so that you are kept on the edge of your seat throughout the entire novel. It does start of quite slowly, building up to that point where you know something ho ...more
This was good! Very much what I was in the mood for at the time I read it. I'll probably pick up the sequel too, since it definitely ends on a cliffhanger. Not my usual reading choice, but super exciting and suspenseful.
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!
Firstly: I can’t wait for 2019. The sequel for this is going to be amazing. I can already feel it.
This was honestly such a fantastic, gripping story; it kept me up reading all night, even though I knew what the consequences would be in the morning. (They were not pretty consequences.) It’s one of those rare books that steals your breath and holds you so tightly that you’re afraid to tear your eyes away from the pages even for a second.
