We have already announced the release date and synopsis for the upcoming Mira Grant book, Parasite and now we can also show you the amazing cover art and well as reveal the official name of the series. The series will be called Parasitology and the first part, Parasite will be published in hardcover, which is rather nifty. The book is scheduled to come out on October 29, 2013 by Orbit Books.
A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.
We owe our good health to a humble parasite - a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the Intestinal Bodyguard worm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system - even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.
But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives . . . and will do anything to get them.
