Publisher's Summary

Fifty people go to sleep in their own beds and wake up in a compound in the middle of the jungle. Men and women from all walks of life with only one thing in common - none of them know where they are or how they got there. Alex is a paratrooper. Yael is a mathematician. Max is a law professor. They can't leave - a lethal barrier surrounds the facility, but no one knows if it's there to keep them in, or to keep something out.
The compound is comfortable and provides for all of their needs. There's a warehouse with DNA coded locks. Only Barbara, the doctor, can open a fully stocked operating room, and only Alex can get into an arms room with enough weapons to outfit an infantry platoon. There is enough food and other supplies to last for decades, but nothing to tell them who did this to them or why.
For Alex, it's an intriguing mystery - anything is better than digging foxholes in the desert - but he and the others don't realize that time is running out. On the other side of the barrier lies a horror beyond imagination, and the barrier is about to come down.

Seed is everythin Wayward pines should have been.

Where does Seed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Seed so far is my most enjoyable experience with an audiobook I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. If only M. Night Shyamalan chose to produce Seed rather than Wayward pines this could easily be the best show on TV, or an more Epic full length. feature


Who was your favorite character and why?

Alex obviously , is the ego of the book, it's clear he the avatar Michael Edelson personally used when creating he envisioned his creation in his minds eye.


What does Rob Zaleski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Although Rob's performance does lack excitement, his voice sounds exactly what I imagined Alex's voice to sound like when I first read Seed on paperback. I think it added a prefect touch and allowed me to be even more engrossed in Michaels Edleson's eerie world.

listened to it in one go.

I was originally turned off by the intro and admittedly didn't give it the chance it deserved. I am not a fan of military esk stories (which is what the begining seemed) but gave it a shot once the audio book came out. It would seem that the story got better and better throughout and I marathon'd the entire book in one go. I am glad I gave it a second chance. I think Edelson's stories really shine in the audio book format. I am reminded of an Olde time-y radio program mixed with an action film.
