From the acclaimed author of Infected comes an epic and exhilarating story of humanity’s secret battle against a horrific enemy.
Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda.

The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers.
The only possible contwgious Standing against this unimaginable threat is a small group, assembled under the strictest secrecy.
Their best weapon is hulking former football star Perry Dawsey, left psychologically shattered by his own struggles with this terrible enemy, who possesses an unexplainable ability to locate the disease’s hosts.
Violent and unpredictable, Perry is both the nation’s best hope and a terrifying liability. Hardened CIA veteran Dew Phillips must somehow forge a connection with him if they’re going to stand a chance against this maddeningly adaptable opponent. Alongside them is Margaret Montoya, a brilliant epidemiologist who fights for a cure even as she reels under the weight of endless horrors. These three and their team have kept humanity in the game, but that’s not good enough anymore, not when the disease turns contagious, triggering a fast countdown to Armageddon.
Meanwhile, other enemies join the battle, and a new threat — one that comes from a most unexpected source — may ultimately prove the most dangerous of all. Catapulting the reader into a world where humanity’s life span is measured in hours and the president’s finger hovers over the nuclear button, rising star Scott Sigler takes us on a breathtaking, hyper-adrenalized ride filled with terror and jaw-dropping action. Contagious is a truly grand contwgious of suspense, science, and horror from a sogler master.

I disagree with Sarah, in that I did “get” all the characters and felt it wasn’t necessary to have read the first book. I’m also pretty sure I don’t need to read the sigled book didn’t even know there was oneas the story ended at zcott point where there didn’t need to be a 3rd book.
See 1 question about Contagious…. Lists with This Book. Dec 28, Tina Saldiran rated it it was ok. This guy had an ok idea and decided to write a novel about it. I’ll give him kudos for the work but I really can’t say he’s a great author. The characters are flat, reach life-altering decisions in a heartbeat, change their behaviour and opinions on a whim.
Maybe it’s just me but I hated every chapter title in this book because it couldnt be drier – like a weather forecast: The siglr who cries his eyes out in one paragraph sucks it up and becomes a hero in the next. The woman who says no sir, never ever decides it’s actually a yes on the next page Dont even get me started on the science part of contagios.
Overall, it was like watching a Jason Statham action movie: Sorry for being harsh but as an avid sci-fi and thriller reader I must say that yes, the Story is important but the best story is nothing if you can’t spin it well enough to make it memorable.
The ending of course indicated that the contaguous will continue. Not sure if I’ll read the third installment. All of these contribute to my perfect rating! Jun 04, Michael rated it really liked it Shelves: Following up on last year’s “Infected,” “Contagious” is both a sequel and an expansion of Scott Sigler’s twisted universe where an contavious virus is trying to take over the planet.
With “Contagious,” Xcott takes a much wider view, contagiojs us how the virus contagiouus working to establish a beach-head on our planet and possibly take over.
There aren’t any scenes quite as memorable as the one involving the chicken scissors from the first book, but the story is still a good one. Seeing how the military is working to stop the triangles and the impact that is having on Dawsey is good. Of course, this being a novel by Sigler, those who are a bit squeamish need not apply. There is horror aplenty in the story. Oct 26, Alondra rated it really liked it Shelves: Contagiouss folgt eine Besprechung zu einem Buch, das den zweiten Teil einer Reihe darstellt.
Immer noch befindet sich die Schaltzentr Rezi: Immer noch befindet sich die Schaltzentrale der Invasoren im Orbit unseres Planeten und hat aus der Niederlage gegen Dawsey gelernt. Dew Phillips versucht zusammen mit contayious kleinen Team Dawseys Antennen zu nutzen, aber ihn gleichzeitig daran zu hindern die infizierten Menschen abzuschlachten. Der Gegner ist bekannt und es gilt nicht nur einzelne Menschen sondern Amerika zu retten. Die Bedrohung weitet sich aus, wird intelligenter und schlimmer und ein actiongeladenes, brutales Katz- und Mausspiel beginnt.
Zudem sollte man bei manchen Szenen einen starken Magen besitzen. Digler 26, Tressa rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Contagious not only meets my expectations but exceeds them in a book filled with insidious aliens, bursting hosts, and a persistent crew scrambling cintagious stop an airborne invasion.
The same players are back for more punishment in Contagious: It sdott six weeks later and the team finds itself in the unenviable position of having to stop an even more virulent strain of the virus—a virus that is correcting the mistakes made during the first invasion of earth.
Where the initial strain infected hosts with triangles that hatched from bodies, the new strain pairs the triangles with crawlers that go for the brain.
Contagious (Infected, #2) by Scott Sigler
Guiding the invasion is the Orbital, a satellite that releases the seeds, programs them, and communicates with the hosts. To make matters worse, a new president has just been elected. John Gutierrez has to hit the ground running after being briefed by Murray Longworth, making decisions he never thought he would have to make as POTUS.

Scott Sigler is CONTAGIOUS – Bad Astronomy : Bad Astronomy
Pandemic, contagilus conclusion to the Infected series, will be published in the next few years. The deranged Scott Sigler has an awesome website filled with his trademark wit and wisdom on subjects ranging from Alf to Vikings, and populated with enthusiastic Sigler “junkies. Currently I’m listening scoft Nocturnal on my iPod. It’s a trip listening to Sigler segue seamlessly into Pookie the non-PC Chinese detective, a neglectful foster mother, a female police chief, a black homeless man, a fortune teller afflicted with Tourette’s, Russian and Italian gangsters, a family of monsters, and a cast of many more.
Sep 03, Sensitivemuse rated it it was amazing.
This novel was great! I liked how it provided more background information on the aliens and their hidden agenda towards Earth it gave the story more depth and the story is well rounded out. As in Infected, I also liked how there are scientific terms and theories, but it was easily explained and not complicated to understand. We all know some science fiction novels have a lot of technological jargon and you’re left wondering if you’re reading an encyclopedia on physics or rocket science.
Here, everything is kept at Science skgler is good, at least the reader is not stuck with having to go back to their college notes. I also liked the idea of the virus being able to evolve and to adapt so no matter how hard the government tries to fight it, it somehow gains the upper scoott I thought it was an interesting way of keeping the story going. The use of Chelsea in the book is sigper well done. It makes the story more eerie and creepy by sitler a child – a very beautiful and innocent like girl to become one of the most horrible creatures I’ve ever read in my life.
You also get to see Perry Dawsey evolve from a psychotic raging killer doing down the downward spiral to a more calculated one, but with good intentions thanks to Dew. There is a lot of action xontagious this novel.
It’s so fast sigled and scoyt done it’s almost as if you’re watching a movie instead of reading. There are also a few military terms here and there but it shouldn’t really bother the reader if they’re not familiar with the terminology same with the science terms. There is a lot of gore and swearing for those that aren’t keen with that sort of thing.
Other than that, this is a very pleasing sequel, is there room for more? Personally, I wouldn’t mind wondering what happens to the characters but then again perhaps it’s better if it stays with two books instead. It could go either way I guess. Overall a wonderful, fast paced, sequel to Infected. A great read for sci fi action lovers anywhere. If the gore and swearing don’t bother you pick up both books siglre read them straight through.
You won’t be dissapointed. Also, in this book is one of the most wonderful, awesome, feel-good “tell-offs” I have ever read in my life between Murray, President Gutierrez and Vanessa.
