Part of the Parasitology series
THE ENEMY IS INSIDE US. The SymboGen-designed parasites 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 parasites are taking over their hosts, what their eventual goal is and how they can be stopped.

Review by wyvernfriend
It's all so plausible, there are a lot of hunts for panaceas for all ills going on, and the idea of a tapeworm that could deal with the niggles is simple, however the "and then it grows and takes over your brain part"? Not so much of a fan. The first one was intense and I couldn't put it down, this one I read a few books over.I started it some time last year and just finished it and have no real hunger to read the end. I do want to no, no revulsion to finish but when I discovered none of the libraries have it yet I wasn't upset, it was ho-hum and on with my day.Sal is discovering what it means to be her, being kidnapped and being experimented on and she really, really just wants to live a peaceful life, but no-one is letting her, least of all her fellow parasites.Interesting but a bit meh.
