Southern Reach #1: Annihilation
Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. Expeditions there tend to end badly. Very badly The objectives of the four women scientists of the twelfth expedition are: to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding, but it's the surprises that came across the border with them, and the secrets they are keeping from one another, that change everything.
