Book Review: Invasive

Title: Invasive

Author: Chuck Wendig

This is a backdated review

Set in the same universe as Zeroes, Invasive explores the possible consequences of research into genetically altered insects (ants). We are already doing this with mosquitoes to try to stop the spread of infectious disease, so this technology is with our grasp. The story keeps you interested through the end, but there was a level of predictability to some aspects. The world envisoned by Chuck is far too close to reality for comfort and I surely hope we don't end up with weaponized insects in a terror attack or a military conflict. The consequences would be unimaginble... If the combination of scifi/tech and insects piques your interest you should definitely pick this up.
