Natural Selection:
A Novel

By Dave Freedman

Read Bio
ISBN 10: 1401302092

A shocking biological discovery.
A previously unknown predatory species.
Evolving just like the dinosaurs. Now. Today.
Being forced out of its world and into man’s for a violent first encounter.

Weaving science and thriller in a way not seen since Jurassic Park, Natural Selection introduces a phenomenally dangerous new species that is doing the incredible: learning how to fly.

A mystery. A chase. A vast expansive puzzle. A team of marine scientists is on the verge of making the most stunning discovery in the history of man. In their quest for answers, they engage a host of fascinating characters. The world’s premier neurology expert. A specialist on animal teeth. Flight simulation wizards, evolution historians, deep sea geologists, and so many more. Along the way, the team of six men and women experience love, friendship, loyalty and betrayal. Together, they set off to exotic locales. Literally to the bottom of the ocean. To a vast and mysterious redwood forest. To an unknown complex of massive caves. When people start dying, the stakes are upped even further. Then the real hunt begins . . .

Loaded with astonishing action sequences, Natural Selection is that rare breed of thriller, filled with intricately layered research, real three-dimensional characters, and tornado pacing.


“Like all the best horror authors, Freedman takes his story well beyond the safety of camp; by making it believable, he makes it genuinely terrifying — and when that happens, large audiences follow. Don’t be surprised if giant flying fish are the talk of the summer. Keep watching the skies.” —Booklist
