    Scary as Hell

    I will start by saying that this book truly creeped me out. It had me hooked from the first page. Michael Mcbride knows how to write horror. I still cant believe how good this book really was. I read a lot of horror novels but very rarely do I ever get the creeps. Species gave them to me from start to finish. The story is original and the characters are as well developed as any story as I have ever read. The suspense was the best part though. It was unbelievable. It will grab you by your throat and wont let go. To whoever is reading this if you like horror or sci-fi novels don't waste anymore time. BUY THIS BOOK NOW. I can promise you that you will not be sorry. Species II The Hive is the second installment in Michael McBride's apocalyptic series. I was blown away by Species so my expectations were very high when I started this story. Michael did not disappoint me in the least. The Hive takes off early and never lets up. The story picks up exactly where the first book finished. The survivors are holed up in the town of Sanctuary. The snow and brutal cold have them in a miserable state. Some of the group are starting to feel like the situation is hopeless. That is until one of the members discovers a way to destroy the Alien Organisms that infect the bodies of the dead. There is only one catch. They will have to return to Denver to get what they need to fight the creatures, and the city is infested with millions of them. The creatures are also starting to evolve to their environment and are becoming more dangerous than ever. I found myself staying up to the crack of dawn immersed in the world Michael created. He has a way of making the words jump right off the page. You feel like your right there experiencing everything the characters are going through. I was completely absorbed in this story, and hated to see it come to an end. I am really looking forward to seeing how he is going to conclude it all. Michael also turns the intensity up a notch in The Hive. There is more suspense, carnage, and a lot more gore in this installment. There were scenes that had my heart pounding, and stomach churning. The Hive is not for anyone with a weak heart or stomach. Michael pulls no punches this go around. To sum it all up I think The Hive is Michael's best effort yet. Its fast, and very furious. He is really starting to perfect a writing style all his own. He is one of the most promising new Horror Authors out there, and I look forward to seeing what he gives us in the future.
