When Lee Bennett first notices the distant droning noise, he attributes it to the jet engines over at the nearby airpark. Then he and his wife move to a small town forty-five miles away–and he can still hear it.
He soon learns he is only one of thousands of people around the world who have detected “the Hum.” He begins to observe other things as well: something is killing the animals, and people are behaving oddly.
As a deadly sickness begins to plague the residents, he must find a way to halt the far-reaching events before it is too late.
“The Hum is a well-paced thriller that punches through into unexpected territory as the story progresses. Taking inspiration from futuristic films like Twelve Monkeys, Mikeworth’s novel expertly blends mystery with science fiction, plunging her characters into a world teeming with very real terrors. Mikeworth ties her characters together with common interests: the desire for safety, for family, and for warmth and love.”

“The Hum is an excellent horror/thriller that takes a very simple phenomenon known as the Hum and turns it into a terrifying entry point for an out-of-this-world thriller. The simplicity of the initial problems, combined with Mikeworth’s ability to create believable characters that are just normal people dealing with normal problems, makes The Hum one of those titles that draws you in from the first few pages and keeps you interested all the way through the story. This page-turning thriller might be the best Indy book I have read so far this year. If you’re a fan of the horror genre and enjoy fast-paced sci-fi styled stories that push what can be considered believable, then the The Hum is a good choice.”

“Sharon Mikeworth has created a masterful horror tale with The Hum. It’s an exciting story with twists and turns that keep the reader “on their toes” and surprised by amazing discoveries. It’s a different kind of horror tale that engages your imagination and surprises you with the possibilities that the world as you see it may not be all that exists.”
