Book: Seed

 Book: Seed

Author: Ania Ahlborn

Pages: 246

This is my 3rd read for the year

This is the story about Jack.  When he was a little boy, he ran away from home.  He ran away from something dark but he does not remember the details.  Now, years later he has a wife and two little girls that depend on him.  One night - the entire family is in a car accident.  While not physically hurt, Jack's youngest daughter, Charlie, starts to act strange.  Her behavior becomes almost evil.  Charlie is only 6 years old, but Jack recognizes something in Charlie - something he knows about himself when he was her age.  And he feels powerless to stop what is coming.

This was an okay book.  It has its fair amount of scary bits - things that make you look over you shoulder say, if you are listening to this book while walking alone in the woods with your dogs.  But I didn't really care for any of the characters.  Jack was okay, but the wife and girls - no.  And I also hate when author's consistently make it so people "can't answer".  or "words get stuck in their throat".  It was overdone in this book where characters made no explanations for their actions for no reason.  Plus Jack never did ANYTING.  He was always frozen.  Or unwilling to say something.  It got ridiculous. The ending was gruesome, but also predictable.  

She is no Stephen King.
