Book Review~Brood X

Brood X, by Michael Phillip Cash, is completely different from what I usually read (think Amish Fiction).  This is a suspenseful thriller and I absolutely loved it!

Summary (from the author): "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.  Will Seth grow up and take responsibility for his family?  Or will the devastating bugs destroy humanity?"

Brood X was a page-turner that I could not put down from the beginning.  I was drawn in to the story immediately.  The characters were well-developed and easy to relate to.  Just the thought of being pregnant, with delivery soon, and this invasion happening just gave me chills.  The story line kept my attention throughout the book and the ending was just as great!  I recommend this book and will definitely read more from this author!
