Mira Grant - Kingdom of Needle and Bone
We live in an age of wonders. Modern medicine has conquered or contained many of the diseases that used to carry children away before their time, reducing mortality and improving health. Vaccination and treatment are widely available, not held in reserve for the chosen few. There are still monsters left to fight, but the old ones, the simple ones, trouble us no more. Or so we thought. For with the reduction in danger comes the erosion of memory, as pandemics fade from memory into story into fairy tale. Those old diseases can’t have been so bad, people say, or we wouldn’t be here to talk about them. They don’t matter. They’re never coming back. How wrong we could be. It begins with a fever. By the time the spots appear, it’s too late: Morris’s disease is loose on the world, and the bodies of the dead begin to pile high in the streets. When its terrible side consequences for the survivors become clear, something must be done, or the dying will never stop. For Dr. Isabella Gauley, whose niece was the first confirmed victim, the route forward is neither clear nor strictly ethical, but it may be the only way to save a world already in crisis. It may be the only way to atone for her part in everything that’s happened. She will never be forgiven, not by herself, and not by anyone else. But she can, perhaps, do the right thing. We live in an age of monsters.

Mira Grant - Rolling in the Deep
When the Imagine Network commissioned a documentary on mermaids, to be filmed from the cruise ship Atargatis, they expected what they had always received before: an assortment of eyewitness reports that proved nothing, some footage that proved even less, and the kind of ratings that only came from peddling imaginary creatures to the masses. They didn't expect actual mermaids. They certainly didn't expect those mermaids to have teeth. This is the story of the Atargatis, lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy. Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the bathypelagic zone in the Mariana Trench…and the depths are very good at keeping secrets.

Mira Grant - Feed
In 2014, two experimental viruses—a genetically engineered flu strain designed by Dr. Alexander Kellis, intended to act as a cure for the common cold, and a cancer-killing strain of Marburg, known as "Marburg Amberlee"—escaped the lab and combined to form a single airborne pathogen that swept around the world in a matter of days. It cured cancer. It stopped a thousand cold and flu viruses in their tracks. It raised the dead. Millions died in the chaos that followed. The summer of 2014 was dubbed "The Rising," and only the lessons learned from a thousand zombie movies allowed mankind to survive. Even then, the world was changed forever. The mainstream media fell, Internet news acquired an undeniable new legitimacy, and the CDC rose to a new level of power. Set twenty years after the Rising, the Newsflesh trilogy follows a team of bloggers, led by Georgia and Shaun Mason, as they search for the brutal truths behind the infection. Danger, deceit, and betrayal lurk around every corner, as does the hardest question of them all: When will you rise?
Mira Grant - Feed - Etetés
„Legyek bár élő vagy halott, az igazság nem nyugszik. A nevem Georgia Mason, és könyörgöm: cselekedjetek, amíg lehet!” 2014-ben kezdődött. Megtaláltuk a rák gyógymódját, és a közönséges nátha ellenszerét. Csakhogy ezek által valami újat teremtettünk, melyet senki nem tudott megállítani. A fertőzés terjedt, a vírustörzsek átvették a hatalmat a testek és elmék felett, és az így létrejött zombikat már csak egyetlen késztetés hajtotta: hogy bármilyen élőlényt, aki az útjukba kerül, felfaljanak. Most, több mint húsz évvel a Feltámadás után a blogger testvérpár, Georgia és Shaun Mason úton vannak életük legnagyobb sztorija felé - és felfedik a fertőzötteket mozgató sötét összeesküvést. Nyilvánosságra akarják hozni az igazságot, még ha az életükkel fizetnek is érte. "Megkapó, lebilincselő és brutális!" (Publishers Weekly) "Ezt a zombiregényt akár Robert A. Heinlein is írhatta volna!" (Sci-Fi Magazine) "Igazán megdöbbentő befejezés!" (Daily Telegraph)
