A thrilling and hair raiseingly plausible story of disaster caused by an every bug that's a common inhabitant of every North American's summer. You never give a second thought to it as you hear the Cicadas mating calls, but you will after reading this book. There is no weird mutation or metamorphosis but that little bug becomes a life threatening plague by just emerging a bit larger and in numbers just too vast to handle. The scary reality of mans ineffectiveness when natures takes hold is highlighted very well in this story. Though a little slow in the beginning, it soon picks up the pace and keeps you turning the pages. It is chilling, scary, suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat, as you follow Seth and Lara as they and their friends battle to survive. The deep voice of the narrator fits the male protagonists well and is also able to do believable female voices too. It is a well written, entertaining story, with engaging characters and a plot that not only freaks you out but that, once you get into it, you won't be able to put it down. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review
