The Parasite War is a science fiction novel by author Tim Sullivan. It centers on a group of human renegades fighting to survive in the aftermath of an Alien Invasion of protoplasmic aliens. It's similar in some respects to the ever-popular zombie apocalypse genre, but the virus is alien in origin and eventually eats the humans it infects while they search for other humans to feed on in the meantime.
