Back in the year of our Lord 1988 I had a horrible trip on some postage stamped sized LSD-25 with images of pelicans surfing and riding Harley's at a Pink Floyd concert. All 70,000 fan's arms turned into lightning bolts and they sparked them together chanting my name. By the end of the show I swore worms were crawling through my skull eating my brains and I had to crawl out of Arrowhead Stadium because the worms had eaten away the portion of my brain that controlled balance. This book reminds me a lot of that experience and I cannot seem to put it down so I am going to go ahead and order part three from the library right now.

YAY! THIS is the Mira Grant I know and love! In Symbiont, Mira picks up the pace, and leads you through a more-action packed part of the Parasitology series. There are some very interesting characters (Ronnie), some romantic mushy-gush (I love you even though you…not gonna spoil!), a disturbing scene or ten featuring a psychopathic parasite-human hybrid thingie, and a stay in Willie-Wonka Candyland rip-off.(If you can’t tell, yes, I really enjoyed Symbiont.)

You do need, I think, to read Parasite to have a good understanding of what is going on in Symbiont. I wouldn’t recommend trying to read it as a stand-alone.

Fans of TEOTWAWKI situations will like Symbiont, but be forewarned, there is not a lot of ‘global’ mention in this book. It very much focuses on how the situation is impacting the main characters.

Very exciting. Gets a little gory toward the middle, but I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the next one. PG-13
