SUBHUMAN, A UNIT 51 NOVEL, BOOK ONE, by Michael McBride, Pinnacle Books



At a research station in Antarctica, five of the world’s top scientists have been brought together to solve one of the greatest mysteries in human history. Their subject, however, is anything but human . . .
Deep beneath the ice, the submerged ruins of a lost civilization hold the key to the strange mutations that each scientist has encountered across the globe: A misshapen skull in Russia. The grotesque carvings of a lost race in Peru. The mummified remains of a humanoid monstrosity in Egypt . . .
When a series of sound waves trigger the ancient organisms, a new kind of evolution begins. Latching onto a human host–crossbreeding with human DNA–a long-extinct life form is reborn. Its kind has not walked the earth for thousands of years. Its instincts are fiercer, more savage, than any predator alive. And its prey are the scientists who unleashed it, the humans who spawned it, and the tender living flesh on which it feeds . …


I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Holy crap! Hang onto your seat, you’re in store for a bumpy ride! Thrilling, frightening, horrifically tantalizing, and all with exceptional writing! Lots of science (it is a science fiction…) and excellent world building, character development and plot pacing. Love how all the subplots come together to form tension.

This story will draw you in, hold your nerve for ransom and send you along a journey that you won’t forget for a long time coming.  I wanted to read it straight through but had to put it down for spring cleaning. However, it stayed on my mind throughout! THAT says a lot for how much I loved the story.

Wow! I always loved McBride’s work, but this… this first book of the series will knock your socks off and make you believe!

Bold writing, brilliant plot structure, amazing character development and tension galore… McBride hit a home run! Now on to the next book of the series, I can hardly wait!
