Species of the Week: Gaiaphage


Designation: Sentient

Homeworld: Unknown

Notable members: The Darkness

Fandom: GONE series


Eons ago a life-worshiping species filled a dead moon with a sentient virus designed to create and spread life. They intentionally destroyed the moon allowing fragments to fly across the cosmos, hoping to spread life to barren worlds. One such fragment arrived on earth and, due to it’s interaction with human DNA became corrupted, producing devastating mutations in humans and wildlife and became a force of destruction.

I’ve been reading the fourth Gone novel Plague. It certainly steps up the gore and violence so I’d only recommend if you’ve got a strong stomach!! The world where adults have disappeared and teens with superpowers are trapped behind an impenetrable force field is a non-stop rollercoaster of suspense. Plague finally sheds some light on the origins of the Darkness, the ever-present and ever-changing threat to all the survivors of the FAYZ.
