Publisher's Summary

A strange phenomenon occurs out of nowhere: an omnipresent light that engulfs the entire planet. Humanity is forever changed by the light. NOAA and NASA are mystified.
People soon face a new threat; even the smallest, most insignificant injury will no longer heal. Doctors cannot stop it. The sick do not die. They change.
They are Scabs.
As the survivors flee, it becomes clear there's no place to run, and time is short. The topography of the planet begins to change. Devastation and destruction ensue on a massive scale.
Scott and Warren Walsh are brothers. Over 1,000 miles separate them from one another. Something about them is special, and places them in a category with only 0.2 percent of the world's population.
Only one thing gives Scott, Warren, and others like them hope against the Scabs...The Gemini Exception.

Very good!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because I enjoyed all aspects of the story. There were times when the book was a bit slow but I understood it was an effort so we could to get to know and grow to like each character, and I did. Because of the way the story ended, there is a need for a second book and I hope it comes soon. If there isn't a second book coming soon...I will NOT be pleased.

What did you like best about this story?

It kept my interest and that is not easy to do.

Which character – as performed by Eric A. Shelman – was your favorite?

All of them. Mr. Shelman gave a great performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

A few but I'll leave that for each reader to discover for themselves.

Any additional comments?

Get going on the second book quick!

You will NOT be disappointed!

I LOVED this book. From the start it grabbed me and took me for a ride.

Maybe it's just me but I wasnt as scared as most of the reviews. I was intrigued by the light, and how the scabs started. I wanted to cut into it myself and see what was inside.

It was nice to see the difference between the main character twins dealt with what was happening. A little sad for one.

My only complaint is, that the story ended and now I have to wait for the next one.

And Mr. Shelman, ANY kind of bacon is good :)

Good read

Well I really enjoyed this, I'm almost sorry I rated so many books 3 and 4 this is a solid 3.5 not amazing but not great, but I'm glad I picked this up.. Kept me interested until the end and I want more if it was not for previous books this would have been a 4 or 5.. I think the performance detracted from the book a lot maybe it was the unfamiliar acent.... Its not often I consider marking down a book for the narrator but I did not like this guy... Sorry (what ever your name is)

Something else to keep me awake!

What made the experience of listening to Scabs: The Gemini Exception the most enjoyable?

Darn the author has a excellent voice! great male and female voices and fully rounded characters

What other book might you compare Scabs: The Gemini Exception to, and why?

Hybrid 'The Thing' meets 'Aliens' but on a far superior scale

Which character – as performed by Eric A. Shelman – was your favourite?

All of them (the mom is totally awesome)

Any additional comments?

Loved the book, only problem i had was the back ground 'Whirly tinny sound' in the audio when played using phone speakers.
