Audiobook review of Symbiont by Mira Grant

Symbiont Audiobook

From Audible:  The second book in Mira Grant's terrifying parasitology series.
The enemy is inside us.
The SymboGen designed tapeworms were created to relieve humanity of disease and sickness. But the implants in the majority of the world's population began attacking their hosts turning them into a ravenous horde.
Now those who do not appear to be afflicted are being gathered for quarantine as panic spreads, but Sal and her companions must discover how the tapeworms are taking over their hosts, what their eventual goal is, and how they can be stopped.

My Take:  I liked the first book in this series so I thought I would try the second book.  It brought back most of the characters that were in the first book.  In this world parasites were introduced to help heal people of different diseases.  Unfortunately some of the parasites have made their way to the brains of their host bodies and have taken over and are making them attack other humans like zombies.  Sal even though she has a tapeworm has taken over the body because the girl was dead but she does turn into what they are calling a sleep walker.  They are trying to find out why some turn into sleep walker while others don't.  Different factions are conduction their own experiments some ethically and some not so much.  There is alot of action in this book.  I will probably be getting the next book with my next Audible Credits.  

Narration:  The narrator for this book is Christine Lakin.  You might remember as one of the kids from the show Step by Step.  Anyway she did a really good job of making all of the characters have different voices and she sounded excited when she should have and displayed the proper emotions.  She also paused when she should have.  Excellent job.  

This book was from my personal library at Audible.
