Bzrk by Michael Grant

These are no ordinary soldiers. This is no ordinary war. Welcome to the nano, where the only battle is for sanity. Losing is not an option when a world of madness is at stake. Time is running out for the good guys. But what happens when you don't know who the good guys really are?

Noah and Sadie: newly initiated to an underground cell so covert that they don't even know each other's names. Here they will learn what it means to fight on a nano level. Soon they will become the deadliest warriors the world has ever seen. Vincent: feels nothing, cares for no one; fighting his own personal battle with Bug Man, the greatest nano warrior alive. The Armstrong Twins: wealthy, privileged, and fanatical. Are they the saviours of mankind or authors of the darkest conspiracy the world has ever seen?

The nano is uncharted territory. A terrifying world of discovery. And everything is to play for...


'... exciting, high-tension story told in a driving, torrential narrative that never lets up. This is great fiction. I love this book.' Stephen King

Q&A with Michael..

Where and when were you born?

Los Angeles California. There was a manger involved.

Where do you live and who with?

I live in Irvine, California, which is in “The OC” as we would say. I live with my wife, K.A. Applegate, and our two kids Jake, 11 (feet tall) and Julia, 9 (inches tall.) We have three pets: Goofy, a very large, very stupid, very sweet, poop-eating yellow Labrador; Pugs a nasty, hostile, ugly, yapping pug who I have not yet managed to kill; and Lightning, my daughter’s cat.

How did you first start writing?

My wife and I started writing together in 1989. At the time we were cleaning homes and offices for a living. Since then we’ve written over 150 books, sometimes together, sometimes separately, often under pseudonyms.

What inspires you?

Fear of having to get a real job. Oh, you mean artistically? I don’t know. I seem to be a compulsive writer. I like the rush of taking on something difficult, having no clear idea what I’m doing, and somehow pulling it off.

Have you won any awards for your work?

Fine, rub my nose in that. Great. Actually, the only award I have is a Pollie Award for political ads I produced for the Democrats a few years back.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Amused. Impatient. Political.

What do you do to relax?

Watch TV. Go to restaurants. I don’t find reading fiction relaxing, exactly, it’s too much like work. I tend to read history for relaxation.
