Cover_AnnihilationArea X is a black zone where human civilization has been reclaimed by nature and the normal rules of physics are bent and broken. The unnamed protagonist (no names are used throughout the entire book) is a part of the twelfth expedition sent in to explore and report back on the unique conditions of Area X; that is, if they make it back at all.

Intense and mind-bending, “Annihilation,” the first of Jeff Vandermeer’s “Southern Reach Trilogy” (all of which is published) is a fast-paced read that sucks you in quickly and keeps you entranced until you’re no longer certain what’s real and what’s not. A definite must for fans of dystopian works and science fiction, as well as for fans of the TV show “Lost.”

You can put “Annihilation” on hold in our catalog right now. If you have to wait, be sure to check out “You Might Also Like These…” at the bottom of the book’s catalog page.
