Subhuman

Subhuman
Unit 51 #1
by Michael McBride
Genre: Horror, Thriller, Supernatural, Aliens
THEY ARE NOT HUMAN.
At a research station in Antarctica, five of
the world’s top scientists have been brought together to solve one
of the greatest mysteries in human history. Their subject, however,
is anything but human . . .
THEY ARE NOT NATURAL.
Deep beneath the ice, the submerged ruins of
a lost civilization hold the key to the strange mutations that each
scientist has encountered across the globe: A misshapen skull in
Russia. The grotesque carvings of a lost race in Peru. The mummified
remains of a humanoid monstrosity in Egypt . . .
THEY ARE NOT FRIENDLY.
When a series of sound waves trigger the
ancient organisms, a new kind of evolution begins. Latching onto a
human host—crossbreeding with human DNA—a long-extinct life form
is reborn. Its kind has not walked the earth for thousands of years.
Its instincts are fiercer, more savage, than any predator alive. And
its prey are the scientists who unleashed it, the humans who spawned
it, and the tender living flesh on which it feeds . . .
Praise for Michael McBride
A fast-paced and frightening ride. Highly recommended for fans of
creature horror and the thrillers of Michael Crichton.”—The
Horror Review
on PREDATORY INSTINCT
McBride writes with the perfect mixture of suspense and horror that
keeps the reader on edge.” —Examiner
Michael McBride was born in Colorado and still resides in the shadow of
the Rocky Mountains. He hates the snow, but loves the Avalanche.
He works with medical radiation, yet somehow managed to
produce five children, none of whom, miraculously, have tails, third
eyes, or other random mutations. He writes fiction that
runs the gamut from thriller (Remains) to horror to science fiction
(Vector Borne, Snowblind) . . . and loves every minute of it. He is a
two-time winner of the DarkFuse Readers’ Choice Award.
 

My Review

4 stars

In Queen Muad Land, Antarctica a new discovery has been made. Hollis Richards and Will Connor start putting together a group of scientists to work on this discovery. Together they find an unknown creature/thing. They team works together as a family to come up with possible scenarios for the discovery.

But things go terribly wrong and the scientists go from research to running for their lives. One test has awakened the creature and it is going to join with the humans to create something never seen before. The scientists have gone from the top of the food chain to food for a creature that is faster and more powerful than anything on Earth. Will they stop it?

Subhuman reminds me of James Rollins. You have a rich entrepreneur that really wants to help the world. You have a huge case of scientists that are working together to unlock the secrets of the discovery. Now the story bounces between the different scientists so this story does get rather expanded and slows down. The first portion of the story revolves around the science and the discovery. But when the creatures come out to play things go from bad to worse quickly.

Then it becomes a race to get away from the creatures that are going to destroy the scientists in the worst way possible. Classic horror story that will keep you on the edge of you seat hoping they stop the creature or if they are all going to die.

This is the first in a series so I am curious to see where it goes from here. This is a great horror thriller that will keep you turning pages late in the night.

Subhuman/McBride Blog Entry #2
in Conjunction with Business Insider Article:
“Scientists are closing in on warm caves under Antarctica which could support secret life”

(http://www.businessinsider.com/warm-caves-under-antarctica-which-could-support-secret-life-2017-9)

 

Life always finds a way. There’s no other rational explanation for how anything can survive in Antarctica, a continent where the winter is spent in total darkness and at an average temperature of more than fifty degrees below zero. We’re talking about an environment as barren and desolate as the surface of the moon, and yet trapped beneath the ice is an amazing biome unlike any other on the planet.

The world might be dead aboveground, but it is alive with volcanic activity below. Geothermal heat is responsible for keeping entire networks of lakes and rivers from freezing at depths of more than two miles beneath the surface and, as we’re only now learning, the formation of systems of caves warm enough to support higher orders of life. In addition to bacteria and fungi, soil samples have demonstrated traces of DNA from algae, mosses, and small animals, among them species of unknown origin not found anywhere else in the world.

While exploration of the caves has only just begun, some speculate that these warrens could potentially cover the entire continent beneath the ice, connecting them with the site of the recent discovery of a 13,000 year-old meteorite containing fossilized bacteria theorized to be of extraterrestrial origin. Combining an isolated subterranean ecosystem with organisms that shouldn’t have otherwise survived is a recipe for disaster.

It’s this precise scenario that forms the basis for the first book in the Unit 51 Series, Subhuman, in which a team of scientists discovers that something terrifying has survived beneath the ice, something that’s not entirely human. I challenge you to imagine the possibilities presented by this article and then read Subhuman—coming this November from Kensington Publishing, available wherever books are sold—and you’ll soon learn that far worse things than death await us below.
