Publisher's Summary

The human race hangs by a thread the thickness of a single gene: RC-714. The gene, which unlocks the millennia of genetic traits stored in junk DNA, gives crops the ability to rapidly evolve and thrive in any environment. But RC-714 is passed on when consumed. Any creature - mammal, reptile, fish, or insect - that eats the genetically modified crops becomes a slave to the Change. Bodies morph into unrecognizable abominations. Intellect takes a back seat to ravenous hunger. And all the world's species eat each other toward extinction.
Racing against this impending outcome, Peter Crane and his family attempt to reach a laboratory in Boston where a slim hope of saving the human race from extinction exists. But before heading northeast, they must visit the swamps of South Carolina's Hellhole Bay to find a scientist who can help undo the damage done by ExoGen, the corporation that created and unleashed RC-714. Upon reaching Hellhole, the family is captured by a man named Mason, who not only survived the Change, but managed to keep a small community alive as well - a community that is subject to his every carnal desire and whim.
Trapped in the clutches of a man whose heart is as twisted as the monsters that roam the Earth, Peter, Ella, Jakob, Anne, and Alia must fight for their freedom from a literal hellhole. Danger lurks behind every door, stalks beneath the swampy waters, and descends from the sky. As enemies - both human and ExoGenetic - close in, surviving will be harder than ever, and for some, impossible.

Apocalyptic Appetite Killer

This series will appeal to fans of action thrillers and science fiction buffs. It's fast paced with unique characters. The premise is terrifying because you CAN imagine something going really sideways with a plan to genetically modify crops (to taste better and grow faster even in the most inhospitable places) to feed the desperately hungry. Great narration. Can't wait for Book 3.

So many things wanting to kill and/or eat you.

The consequences of RC-714 continue to escalate. Genetically modified creatures and people who have eaten the bounty of RC-714 become more dangerous and in some cases smarter every day. ExoGen security continue to search for Ella and Anne. So many things to avoid, so many things wanting to kill and/or eat you. Peter and his son Jakob protecting Ella, Anne and Alia struggle to continue their journey to the east coast. Ella has another lab in Boston where she believes she can help the contaminated world going forward. The trick is getting there alive. Traveling through South Carolina they are captured by a misfit named Mason. Mason and his small community of survivors are the last place you want to wind up; his sexual inclinations less than admirable. Time to get out of Dodge. Will our merry band of survivors make it to Boston or will ExoGen and the vast array of altered creatures spoil their plans? Looks like we’ll have to wait for book three to find out.
