“Enthralling...Wendig does an impeccable job blending fact and fiction as he describes invasive species and insects being used as biological weapons. This is a propulsive tale that also examines our interaction with — and manipulation of — the natural world.” (Washington Post)
“Wendig crosses, blurs, and smashes genre boundaries more often – and more skillfully – than any author working today...INVASIVE is one part locked room mystery, one part 1950’s monster movie, and one part cutting-edge scientific thriller.” (Crimespree Magazine)
“Excellent...Follows the path set forth by Michael Crichton (a la Congo or Jurassic Park) in which Wendig’s exhaustive research brings a convincing story of humanity tinkering with nature — only to have it backfire...Expect to see it on the big screen.” (Men's Journal)
“This roller-coaster survival tale with copious amounts of creepy insects will appeal to fans of Michael Crichton.” (Booklist)
“Fans of Michael Crichton will feel right at home.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Chuck Wendig can congratulate himself on a stunning new achievement: becoming the architect of all of my future nightmares...INVASIVE is a terrifying and tightly written thriller.” (RT Book Reviews)
“Think Thomas Harris’ Will Graham and Clarice Starling rolled into one and pitched on the knife’s edge of a scenario that makes Jurassic Park look like a carnival ride. Another rip-roaring, deeply paranoid thriller about the reasons to fear the future.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
“[A] rich, darkly funny page-turner with details designed to make those little hairs on the back of your neck stand up with how plausible [it seems].” (Locus)
From the Back Cover
In the middle of the Pacific, on an isolated island known as Kolohe Atoll, a team of scientists is employed by a charismatic billionaire hoping to change the world through cutting-edge research.
In a small cabin on a remote lake in the middle of the Adirondacks, FBI futurist Hannah Stander confronts a barely recognizable human body—one skinned alive by thousands of genetically engineered ants.
Hannah’s investigation ultimately leads her to Kolohe. Although the scientists there vehemently deny any connection to the body, the more Hannah studies the group the more she suspects their work has sinister applications. And the more it looks like no one is getting off the island alive.

I'm always looking for the next Michael Chrichton and this book really delivered. I almost skipped over this as a selection because the story involved ants, but you'll never think of them in the same way when you read his book. Hope Chuck Wendig writes more stories like this. In fact, it would make a great series. I would certainly buy them all. Thanks for the hours of entertainment!!
I find it kinda funny that people are whining about how unbelievable swarms of killer ants are when they do exactly that in Africa - swarm through towns and devour everything in their path, chickens, plants, babies in their cribs. Went kind of morbid there but you get the point. The fact is, killer ants are entirely possible, even if it's not in this exact context.
Sort of Crichton-like with the science aspects (think Jurassic Park on a teeny tiny scale), with some great conspiracy theory/survivalist lore thrown in. Would make a great movie!
