Feast by Jeremiah Knight [5 stars]

From the Description
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.

In2015, Jeremiah Knight exploded onto the horror/sci-fi scene with his Top 100bestselling 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.

Post-Apocalyptic fans rejoice!! Jeremiah Knight is back with Feast, the second book in the Hunger series, and it's EPIC. As a huge fan of Jeremy Robinson, AKA Jeremy Bishop & Jeremiah Knight, I expected to love this book. What I didn't expect was to be so transported by the story that I was surprised when I looked up to find myself in the real world instead of the one Knight created. A world filled with pulse pounding excitement and heart stopping moments of terror as Peter, Ella, Jakob, Anne and Alia try to save what's left of the human race. The ExoGenetic creatures are terrifying but the truly horrific monsters are human. The level of depravity in Hellhole Bay was also, unfortunately, all to realistic. The characters are believable and easy to root for or against. Some of them surprised me, turning out to be unexpected allies. I can't wait to find out more about them and what is waiting down the road for Peter and his family. I highly recommend this phenomenal 5 star read.
