About the Author
Trevor Schmidt aspires to be the most interesting man in the world. He's traveled to almost 50 countries, is learning his third language, and has held more jobs in different fields than many people twice his age. No matter where he is or what he's doing, there's an itch in his head that must be scratched. He's been a writer since word processors had blue screens and white text and there aren't enough hours in the day to get the stories out of his brain and onto a page. Still, he tries.

The story includes a large array of peripheral characters who are all intriguing and developed as archetypes of what one might normally find in a police station, a hospital, or office building. They are all convincing in their manners and each contributes to the story meaningfully and they help move the story along effectively and engagingly. Schmidt’s writing reads much like a John Grisham novel, but he asserts his own particular writing style skillfully to the betterment of the novel. His attention to a minutia of details paints a clear picture of every setting, leading the reader carefully into twists and turns in the story and giving a sense of closeness with the characters, as if the reader were truly there.
Symbiote is a carefully crafted narrative sure to thrill sci-fi audiences worldwide. Schmidt takes readers from San Francisco to Oregon during the the nail-bitting evolution of the story and offers relentless action along the way. As a fan of sci-fi novels, I thoroughly enjoyed Schmidt’s characters and settings, as well as his ability to deliver his plot in an organized, easy to follow manner. This story would be an engaging read for young adults interested in the sci-fi genre, as well as adults. There is mild graphic language, so parental guidance is recommended.
Detective Karen Hall and her boss, Detective Yuri Markot are assigned the case. The chase is on, for sure.
An increase of appetite, green eyes and increased strength are signs that the parasite is within a host. And, the ones with the "parasite" are a force to be reckoned with by all that come in contact with them. Could this parasite be something from the Aliens? Hang on to your seat for the rest of the story!
This story shows the tightness of the "Blue Line" at all costs. The autopsy scene is one that will stay with me for awhile. A most poignant ending for one intrepid detective and also shows that perhaps all was not "lost" by another. And, the epilogue does a wonderful job in tidying up a few loose ends.
Most highly recommended.
