George Brookes is a brilliant but reclusive plant biologist living on a remote Canadian island.  After his mysterious death, the heirs to his estate arrive on the island, including his daughter Isabelle, her teenage children, and Jules Beecher, a friend and pioneer in plant neurobiology. They will be isolated on the frigid island for two weeks, until the next supply boat arrives.

As Jules begins investigating the laboratory and scientific papers left by George, he comes to realize that his mentor may have achieved a monumental scientific breakthrough: communication between plants and humans. Within days, the island begins to have strange and violent effects on the group, especially Jules who becomes obsessed with George’s journal, the strange fungus growing on every plant and tree, and horrible secrets that lay buried in the woods. It doesn’t take long for Isabelle to realize that her father may have unleashed something sinister on the island, a malignant force that’s far more deadly than any human. As a fierce storm hits and the power goes out, she knows they’ll be lucky to make it out alive.

A.J. Colucci masterfully weaves real science with horror to create a truly terrifying thriller, drawing from astonishing new discoveries about plants and exploring their eerie implications. Seeders is a feast of horror and suspense.

Praise for Seeders

“Gripping and brilliantly original. This is truly a bravura performance, as good as Crichton, with vivid characters, crisp writing, and exquisitely creepy science. The excitement stays at a high pitch from the opening chapter right up to the ghastly end. A page-turner extraordinaire.”—Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Kraken Project

“Move over King, Koontz, and Crichton, there’s a new gunslinger in town named A.J. Colucci. Eerie, atmospheric, and strangely plausible, Colucci’s Seeders is a creepy revelation–a riveting techno-thriller that reads like a Victorian ghost story. Seeders is a perfect chiller for the age of global warming.  Highly recommended!” —Jay Bonansinga, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor

“If you could mix H.G. Wells'  Island of Dr. Moreau with a dash of Michael Crichton you'd have A. J. Colucci's Seeders, a taut suspense thriller that isolates its characters in the habitat of a mutation, putting a fascinating twist on what we know about evolution.” —Steve Alten, New York Times bestselling author of The Omega Project
