Do you have a strange and uncontrollable hunger for raw bacon?
Are you afflicted by a desire to wear, and/or consume sweatpants with “juicy” on the back side?
Do you wonder if your annoying neighbors taste delicious?
If you answered “yes” or “maybe” to these questions, you might have been exposed to the RC-714 gene released in my novel, Hunger. I’m sorry to say, the transformation you will soon endure will not be a pleasant one. Not only will you rapidly evolve, accessing long dormant genes, but you’ll be struck by a relentless hunger that will have you eating until you burst, or until those annoying neighbors eat you, and then each other and then everyone else on the block, whilst transforming into something that’s no longer identifiable as human.
If none of this sounds familiar to you, then you need to read Hunger, like right now! If you have read Hunger, good news, Feast – Book II of the Hunger Series, is available today!
The human race hangs by a thread the thickness of a single gene: RC-714. The gene, which unlocks the millennia of genetic traits stored in junk DNA, gives crops the ability to rapidly evolve and thrive in any environment. But RC-714 is passed on when consumed. Any creature-mammal, reptile, fish or insect-that eats the genetically modified crops becomes a slave to the Change. Bodies morph into unrecognizable abominations. Intellect takes a back seat to ravenous hunger. And all the world’s species eat each other toward extinction.
Racing against this impending outcome, Peter Crane and his family attempt to reach a laboratory in Boston, where a slim hope of saving the human race from extinction exists. But before heading northeast, they must visit the swamps of South Carolina’s Hellhole Bay to find a scientist who can help undo the damage done by ExoGen, the corporation that created and unleashed RC-714. Upon reaching Hellhole, the family is captured by a man named Mason, who not only survived the Change, but managed to keep a small community alive as well-a community that is subject to his every carnal desire and whim.
Trapped in the clutches of a man whose heart is as twisted as the monsters that roam the Earth, Peter, Ella, Jakob, Anne and Alia, must fight for their freedom from a literal hellhole. Danger lurks behind every door, stalks beneath the swampy waters and descends from the sky. As enemies-both human and ExoGenetic-close in, surviving will be harder than ever, and for some, impossible.
In 2015, Jeremiah Knight exploded onto the horror/sci-fi scene with his Top 100 bestselling novel: Hunger. Combining the speculative science of Crichton with the twisted scares of King, Feast continues the story that made Hunger the #1 post-apocalyptic novel.
