Remarkable in its world-spanning scope, breathtaking in its visionary intensity, THE BRIDGE is an epic novel of human transformation and destiny that will rank in the classic tradition of Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End and Octavia E. Butler's Dawn.

Somewhere in the cosmos, inquisitive, utterly unhuman aliens reach out, seeking intelligent life, sending greetings and knowledge encrypted within microscopic packets of genetic data. Their information takes on the form of a virus designed to bridge worlds through understanding. But its creators, the alien Kasarans, do not know that their communication might kill...

For when it reaches Earth, the Kasaran virus can't completely adapt to human biology. Instead, it transforms into a plague called the Pandemic that annihilates billions of humans at random.

And when the Pandemic ends, the Earth is changed forever...

From Library Journal:

A race of aliens makes contact with Earth, encoding their knowledge in the form of a virus that, unfortunately, evolves into a deadly pandemic that forever alters the planet's character. Young's first novel blends a keen understanding of human nature with the desire to touch the utterly alien. A good choice for most sf collections.
