Publisher's Summary

Young Danny Mitchell's life seems to be falling apart. First his father died, then his mother moved them away from his life in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to the small river town of Martins Ferry, Ohio. Yet when he finds his father's boyhood journal, things start looking up as he and some neighborhood kids begin exploring the haunts of his late father.
But Danny's life is about to get an even bigger shock. Barbas, one of The 88, has destructive plans for North America that will start in the Ohio Valley region, from Pittsburgh to Martins Ferry. Jealous of the other members of The 88 and hoping to unleash something worse than the rest, Barbas has brought Dr. Ramachandran into his confidence, an Indian scientist who conducted experiments on captured Pakistanis a decade ago and is now a hunted man. Together with Captain Merritt of The Black Hand, Barbas and Ramachandran release a mist that genetically alters humans at a physical level, changing them into strange human-insect hybrids that have the ability to spread this alteration to others.
As hordes of the changed victims spread across the Ohio Valley region and beyond, Danny and his friends, along with a few other unchanged people they meet along the way, struggle to maintain their humanity in a world gone weird.

Strange Change

I've listened to several of Gosney's books and this one was my favorite. It's got a coming-of-age/Stand By Me storyline mixed with a post-apocalyptic disaster, all of which adds up to something special. I finished up the story yesterday and immediately thought "I hope he writes another one." Give this a chance, you won't regret it.

Transmutations

Life as we know it is changing. Humans are being genetically altered into human-insect hybrids, but not everyone has been affected. There are pockets of unchanged humans, but can they survive?

I enjoyed this story written by Ed Gosney and narrated by Andy Harrington.

Nice post apocalyptic adventure

This was a nice adventure although the pace was quite slow, narration helped keep it going and i would be interested to see how it proceeds.
The main characters are i think spot on and very believable as is the inner goings on within the enemy camp.
Could maybe have done with a little more action but as it is mostly kids i can see how the author brings it across.
Narrator is new to me but did a good job on the different characters some almost seamlessly.
Overall i found it a worthwhile listen especially if its on a deal or such.
This audible was gifted to me and is based on my own honest opinion.
