ok thinking is an approriate book to blog agout today

Happy Tuesday all. Thinking that this an appropriate book to blog about today, well just because we are having the attack of the flies around here all trying to get into the house . Which is driving this ranchers wife crazy. With all the swatting and raiding going on, spending more time in the 5th wheel trailer. BROOD X  by Michael Philip Cash is today's book

Seth is laid off from work. His wife Lara just found out they are expecting a baby this summer. Seth plans on documenting the entire pregnancy with his brand new digital camcorder.

During an evening home watching television, the news reports that a swarm of cicada (Brood Ten) are expected to overwhelm the entire Northeast.

Brood Ten is vicious and ready to invade.

During a sweltering summer night, Brood Ten emerges and wreaks havoc with the electric grid, phone and cell service, wi-fi, food and water supply. Civilization as they know it is gone.

Seth and Lara are thrown back to the stone age in their own home with trillions of cicada trying to deposit their eggs and breed.

Fast paced and filled with tension, Brood Ten is the perfect summer read when you’re sitting outside listening to the cicadas sing.
 Ok this book kind a gave me the wiles, why do you ask? Well I actually hate most bugs, and actually kind a living my version right now. Won't go into detail but yeah bugs are horrible laughing.
  This book is about the annual cicada migration an one couples experience with them as they try and lay their eggs and breed .  Seth and Lara are trapped and scared as the cicada fly in, knocking out all communication and well just making life difficult.
 This is actually Michael's first novel and wow did he ever bring it. Now being a Canadian girl I did have to look up what a Cicada was and I never want to be around them. The main characters are the cicada and the secondary characters are Seth and Lara. Seth is jobless and reminds me of a big kid that needs to grow up and Lara is his hard working wife, who is so uptight and pregnant. But as the story goes and the Cicada land Seth starts to grow into the man he is suppose to be. Taking control of the situation and getting them to safety .  Oh trust me you will want to slap Seth at the beginning and yell at him to grow up and be a man. When he does start to do that you will cheer for him.
  Michael takes us on an adventure and wow the horror he writes is just believable and you know it could actually happen. You can feel the panic in everyone as the cicada start landing on the house. You will have to read to find out but I will just say it made me hate bugs just a little bit more .
 This is a face paced horror book that will keep you reading all night long So be prepared for a lot of action suspense and a whole lot of bugs . Michael Philip Cash is a great horror and ghost writer
so check him out.
