Nick and the boys return from the summer's last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut. The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast-very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.Note: This is book one in a 2-part standalone series, the follow-up is THE HATCH.

In this clever and very frightening precursor to an obviously much larger story, Kelli Owen brings a fresh take to the post apocalyptic horror story. Trapped in their homes after deadly disease-carrying black flies invade their town (created by the government to eradicate tent worms, but of course this goes awry), citizens of the small Wisconsin burg realize that survival is the least of their worries. And what Owen so deftly presents is how ordinary folks struggle to survive amidst the horror, and her quiet examination of our somewhat closed society, whether it be urban or suburban, and how at the end of the day, when faced with an apocalyptic horror, to paraphrase Jack from Lost, we can either survive together...or die alone. The sequel was recently released, called THE HATCH. Highly recommended.

Something a simple as a fly can cause so much trouble. This well written story is about being trapped, about survival, about what happens when the flies bring death with them. Recommended.
