Chimera by Mira Grant Review: Survival of the Fittest

Chimera by Mira Grant Review: Survival of the Fittest

This review does not contain any series spoilers.  Reading this series is always a delightfully horrific and philosophical experience.

Parasite by Mira Grant ARC Review: Tapeworms made awesome. For science.

Parasite by Mira Grant ARC Review: Tapeworms made awesome. For science.

You’ve got to give it to Mira Grant (or Seanan McGuire). Anyone who can write a book about tapeworms and make it intriguing, horrifying, and scientifically fascinating needs to be commended.
