Florida is invaded, by the Red Chinese. No aircraft, tanks,trucks,boats or other forms of transport except there are thousands on thousands of them. But they act strange. Speaking of strangeness how about a sinkhole in the backyard of the local sheriff that ate his daughter..one minute she's playing outside, then she's gone.....But not dead apparently...it seems she calls daddy every night,at the same time, and talks about what's going to happen twelve hours in the future. And Mr sheriff speaks to her on an antique hand crank telephone that's just a wall ornament....,it's never been connected to any phone line.
I believe the author needs to send an apology to the entire Chinese people for making them the bad guys. It was a mistake after all.
I give this ....tale.three stars. Two for just writing the book and one star for the story with a Hallmark finish. Thinking about it now this might just be perfect for a Hallmark movie of the weak ( intentionally misspelled that last word)
The nightly phone calls from the Sherrif's "dead" daughter with future premonitions for the following day was a different twist. Other reviewers have also made comments about the story being "disjointed" - a statement that I agree with. I did finish the story which is the only reason I gave it 3 stars.

It's difficult to write this review without giving anything away. It's about an invasion and how people react and how emotions are stretched and how families and friends pull together to try and overcome the enemy. Most of all I felt it was about hope and love.
I did have a few tears in places but then I'm a big softie.
Yes, it is different from Willow's previous books and while I enjoyed the book I still feel her other books are stronger in the plots.
I recommend that all fans (and those that aren't lol) should read The Surge without expectations and they will enjoy it so much more.
Thanks for journey Willow don't regret reading it.
