The first time Lee Bennett notices the humming sound in the distance, he believes it is coming from the nearby aviation center. But then he hears it again forty-five miles away at the new home he and his wife, Shelby, have just moved into, and he realizes it is something else entirely.
He soon learns that he is only one of thousands of people around the world who have detected "the Hum." He observes other bizarre things as well in his quest to find the source of the perplexing noise: something is killing the animals, and people are behaving oddly.
As a deadly sickness begins to plague the residents, a freak snowstorm descends upon the town, and Lee and others must struggle to find a way to halt the potentially far-reaching events and make it out before it is too late.
"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."

"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.”

“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. 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."
