On a remote island in Lake Superior, scientists struggle to solve the problem of xenotransplantation -- using animal tissue to replace failing human organs. Funded by the biotech firm Genada, Dr. Claus Rhumkorrf seeks to recreate the ancestor of all mammals.

By getting back to the root of our creation, Rhumkorrf hopes to create an animal with human internal organs. Rhumkorrf discovers the ancestor, but it is not the small, harmless creature he envisions. His genius gives birth to a fast-growing evil that nature eradicated 250 million years ago -- an evil now on the loose, and very, very hungry.


"From ultra high-tech labs of bleeding-edge biotech to snow-blinded islands haunted by our own genetic past, Scott Sigler takes you on a page-turning ride into real fear and adventure. Ancestor starts with a literal bang and builds to a desperate climax that will keep you guessing."

David Wellington
: author of "Monster Island" and "13 Bullets"

Steve Sawicki:

"From where I stand, Sigler is at the top of the tree."

Jason Bradbury: BBC

"If you are a reader who appreciates a near-perfect blend of hard science and hard-hitting action, expect both in Scott Sigler's masterful thriller, ANCESTOR

A.M. Stickel: Black Petals Magazine

"ANCESTOR infects the imagination and races forward through a tail of genetic manipulation gone awry.

Jeremy Robinson: Bestselling author of "Raising the Past"

"This is Robin Cook re-writing ALIENS. Strap yourself in for this intense warning of what genetic science can unleash. Prepare yourself for the ancestors."

Tee Morris:
Author of "The Morevi Saga"

"ANCESTOR is a cautionary thriller along the lines
of Frankenstein warning readers that science without moral
considerations is dangerous to all mankind."
