“A fast-paced, wild ride that gets going right on page one and then races towards a suitably huge climax.”
-Beauty in Ruins
Barry had created a little piece of paradise in his southern Arizona backyard-until the javelinas came. His battle to rid his property of the wild pigs soon escalated into war. Too late, he realized these weren't ordinary animals. They were something new, something meaner and smarter. These pigs weren't just at war with him; they were at war with the human race. AND THE HUMANS WERE LOSING.
McGeary says he was inspired by a 'nature strikes back' theme. “We keep pushing nature and it's going to backfire on us someday. We are pushing into natural places, and the wildlife is either adapting or dying. My idea [with TUSKERS] is that someday they are going to mutate or adapt in a way that is dangerous to humans.”
TUSKERS is the first volume in Duncan McGeary's Wild Pig Apocalypse trilogy.
