Coming in November from Yen Press. Zoo is the latest novel from James Patterson and Micheal Ledwidge. Adapted and drawn by Andy MacDonald. Brought to you by Yen Press Senior Editor JuYoun Lee and Publishing Director Kurt Hassler.
The description of the Zoo novel says:
All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear.
With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it’s too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide. With wildly inventive imagination and white-knuckle suspense that rivals Stephen King at his very best, James Patterson’s ZOO is an epic, non-stop thrill-ride from “One of the best of the best.” (TIME)
Sounds to me like James Patterson is doing his own take on Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
