New York Times best-selling writer Scott Sigler is the author of fifteen novels, included Infected and Pandemic. His popular Generations Trilogy began with Alive, published in hardcover in July of last year, followed by Alight, released on April 5 of 2016. The final novel, Alone, is scheduled to be released in March of next year.

Alive follows the story of a band of young teens who awaken in a coffin-strewn underground chamber, and the disturbing discoveries that await them when they finally escape. Led by a girl who has no memory of her identity, they explore a labyrinth of corridors filled with bones and dust… and much worse. Cherie Priest (Boneshaker) calls it “A tense, unsettling page-turner of a story — both deeply strange and wildly compelling,” and Entertainment Weekly say it “lives up to its hype, packing plenty of thrills.” It was an Amazon Best Book for July 2015. Del Rey released a trade paperback edition earlier this year, at the bargain price of $10. Well worth checking out.

Alive was published by Del Rey on February 2, 2016. It is 369 pages, priced at $10 in trade paperback, and $9.99 for the digital edition. The cover was designed by David G. Stevenson.

Frank wakes up on an operating table in some big creepy castle while a thunderstorm rages outside. He has no memory of his previous life and closer examination reveals his body is criss-crossed with stitch marks. Also, his hands don’t match. What can it possibly mean?

So, what genre is this? SF? Fantasy? Horror?


I’d say it’s sf/fantasy and horror. The book is a series of reveals, so it’s been very difficult to tell people what it is about. I can’t say it’s “X meets X” without spoilers.

It’s not about Frankenstein, although I, too, would like to have his health insurance plan.
