“Contagion” is a very fast-paced, horror sci-fi novel with…wait for it…space zombies! Interested?
After receiving a distress signal from a distant mining colony, a team is quickly assembled to investigate why the mining colony sent the distress signal and why it went silent shortly after. Upon arriving, the rescue team quickly realizes something went very wrong and can’t find anyone still alive except for a teen boy who is clearly hiding something. His answers to the rescue team’s questions don’t quite add up. They continue to dig into the mystery of what happened to the miners and things only get worse for the crew of the Odyssey. It’s a race against time as the rescuers fight to save themselves.
Highly recommended for anyone in the mood for a sci-fi, horror read with a lot of action and thriller elements.
