Publisher's Summary

Milo's Louisiana bayou is overrun with alien bug invaders and magical creatures in this start to a breathtaking series from best-selling author Jonathan Maberry.

In a world filled with Bugs - monsters that ceaselessly ravage the Earth - Milo Silk has a hard time keeping his dreams separate from reality. So he keeps them locked up in his dream journal and hopes they'll never come to pass. But too often they do - like when his father disappeared three years ago. Lately the Witch of the World has been haunting his dreams, saying he is destined to be the hero who saves everyone. But all Milo can think about is how he fears the Bugs will attack his own camp and bring something even more terrible than ever before....

Very interesting take on magic vs aliens

I'm a huge Jonathan Maberry fan so I typically read anything he publishes. One of the reasons I'm such a big fan is his ability to make believable characters even when the stories are heavily sci-fi or fantasy settings. This is true for this work as well and what makes this an enjoyable read. The believable characters interacting in such an unusual setting really makes this worth the time.
