The most horrifying virus the world has ever known. It's worse than lethal. IT'S EVIL.

Seven years ago, Amanda Flynn returned from a Honduran camp as the sole survivor of a mysterious new virus known as EDH1. Most of its victims die a gruesome, agonizing death. Others become violent savages. But a precious few, like Amanda, survive...and change.

Amanda escaped from a three-month quarantine because the virus made her different, superior. She can sense things, do things, using only her mind - and these abilities tempt her to test their limits. To harm. Even, though she may resist, to kill. Now, an outbreak of violent deaths in a peaceful Colorado town leads Amanda to suspect that a mutated EDH1 has arrived in America. The virologists she warns want her back, for her immunity may be the only key to its defeat. But no lab can hold her. Not while she wields the power.

And now there is another. A man of menace: tall, amoral, relentless. His mission is nothing less than the end of human society - and the birth of a new order forged of his own will. He has the power, too. And, armed with his own store of virulent death, he is coming.

Review: Amanda survived the outbreak of a new and highly virulent virus and became something else, something...more. Along with the heightened senses, strength, and extraordinary psychic talents, comes a rage...a murderous rage. She has kept the rage in check for many years now, but there is someone out there - someone who has no conscience and wants to remake the world in his image - and who has the same powers as Amanda. She must do what it takes to stop him and save the human race.

Hybrid is a slick, tight thriller which when you step back and think about it, is scarily possible. I couldn't put this book down, even when there wasn't a lot of action - the science, science 'fiction', and the human element keep you glued to the page. If you like Michael Crichton or Dean Koontz, this is the book for you!
