Think plants can't fight back? Think again.
George Brookes is a brilliant but reclusive plant biologist living on a remote Canadian island. After his mysterious death, the heirs to George's estate arrive on the island, including his daughter, her teenage children and Jules Beecher, a friend and pioneer in plant neurobiology.
As Jules begins investigating the laboratory and scientific papers left by George, he comes to realize that his mentor may have achieved a monumental scientific breakthrough: communication between plants and humans.
Within days, the island begins to have strange and violent effects on the group, especially Jules who becomes obsessed with George's journal, a strange fungus growing on every plant and tree, and horrible secrets that lay buried in the woods.
Seeders is a terrifying journey into the strange and fascinating world of plant neurobiology, a growing field of study that has recently made startling discoveries, including the detection of a primitive type of nervous system, which shows how plants use all five senses, how they feel pain, make decisions, learn, remember, communicate...and defend themselves against enemies.
BUY THE BOOK:
"Gripping and brilliantly original. This is truly a bravura performance, as good as Crichton, with vivid characters, crisp writing, and exquisitely creepy science. The excitement stays at a high pitch from the opening chapter right up to the ghastly end. A page-turner extraordinaire."
—Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kraken Project
"If you could mix H.G. Wells' Island of Dr. Moreau with a dash of Michael Crichton you'd have A. J. Colucci's Seeders, a taut suspense thriller that isolates its characters in the habitat of a mutation, putting a fascinating twist on what we know about evolution."
—Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of The Omega Project
"Move over King, Koontz, and Crichton, there's a new gunslinger in town and her name is A.J. Colucci. Eerie, atmospheric, and strangely plausible, Colucci's Seeders is a creepy revelation—a riveting techno-thriller that reads like a Victorian ghost story."
