The premise of this story grabbed me from the first page. This is truly a unique spin on biological warfare and I loved the research the author did on a wide array of subjects to bring an additional layer of realism to his story. This may be Alten's best and that is saying something. However, as good as the first 400 pages were the last 80 really tanked in my opinion. The narrative became far too preachy and laden with religious dogma. I enjoyed most of this book, but can't see myself coming back for the next one in the series.

This book was not up to par with what I'd read of Alten's books previously. He should stick to cryptozoology and "monster" stories.
