The Official Blurb

Scientists struggle to solve the problem of xenotransplantation -- using animal tissue to replace failing human organs. Funded by the biotech firm Genada, Dr. Claus Rhumkorrf seeks to recreate the ancestor of all mammals. By getting back to the root of our creation, Rhumkorrf hopes to create an animal with human internal organs. Rhumkorrf discovers the ancestor, but it is not the small, harmless creature he envisions. His genius gives birth to a fast-growing evil that nature eradicated 250 million years ago -- an evil now on the loose, and very, very hungry.

My Review

WOW! Scott Sigler has created a masterpiece of audio storydom ( is that a word? ). It's a science/horror story in the best traditions of the genre, like Crighton, Mr Sigler has done his research, and cleverly built on it to produce an outrageously horrible story thats based on just enough real science to make you see just how real it could be.

The characters in the story are cleverly voiced by Mr Sigler and this brings them all alive. He has managed to fit his voice to this large cast ( though the cast does start shrinking quite quickly as they get killed off ) and given them all a audio personality. This really helps you to get to know the characters and care about them before he rips them apart!

The official blurb gives the main story away, but even knowing that the story is so action packed that you will not be disapointed by any episodes. The story is tense, fast moving and will keep you hooked from beginning to end.

Reading 3/3
Production 2/3
Story 3/3

Total Score 8/9

Here is Chapter 1
