The blurb:

First, there was the black swarm that swallowed a man whole, the suspicious seismic irregularities in India that confounded scientists, the nuclear bomb China dropped on its own territory without any explanation. Then, scientist Melanie Guyer’s lab received a package containing a mysterious egg sac; little did Dr. Guyer know that, almost overnight, Earth would be consumed by previously dormant spiders that suddenly wanted out.

Now, tens of millions of people around the world are dead. Half of China is a nuclear wasteland. Mysterious flesh-eating spiders are marching through Los Angeles, Oslo, Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, and countless other cities. According to Dr. Guyer, the crisis may soon be over.

But in Japan, a giant, glowing egg sac gives a shocking preview of what is to come, even as survivors in Los Angeles panic and break the quarantine zone. Out in the desert, survivalists Gordo and Shotgun are trying to invent a weapon to fight back, but it may be too late, because President Stephanie Pilgrim has been forced to enact the plan of last resort.

America, you are on your own.

I hate spiders! HATE THEM! As much as this series creepy me the hell out, I LOVE it. But then I end up seeing spiders out of the corner of my eye for days after reading.

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone

Happy Pub Day to Ezekiel Boone’s “The Hatching”

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and get the chance to read this book back in February. The first thing I need to mention, is I hate spiders. HATE them! Doesn’t matter how small or large they are, I am an equal opportunity spider hater.

I thought this book would scare the crap out me. But, I made my through it, with lots of cringing though. And a few panic attacks here and there. It’s like Arachnophobia on steroids.

Even if you hate and are afraid of spiders, I would still highly recommend checking out “The Hatching” because it is an excellent read.

The blurb:

An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.

Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. During the same week, the Chinese government “accidentally” drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.

The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake.

“The Hatching” by Ezekiel Boone

This book is EXCITING yet TERRIFYING!

I have a love/hate relationship with this one. The simple fact is: I loved it. But the reason I hate it: spiders. I hate spiders.

The one good thing about living up in the North is we don’t have the Black Widows, Brown Recluses, or Tarantulas. The spiders I tend to see are little ones or Daddy Long Legs. But, these little creatures can send me into such a tizzy, it is ridiculous. I panic, then while I am panicking I need to form a plan of action to kill. Spiders don’t bother me nearly as much when outdoors because that is their territory. But when they come indoors, oh hell no, it’s game on!

Strange events start occurring around the world, many including a swarming, black mass, that seem to devour people instantly. You have the Chinese that “accidentally” drop a nuclear bomb in their own country, a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis (that’s a little too close to comfort for me, thank God this is fiction LOL), unusual seismic patterns in India, and a mysterious package finds its way to a Washington DC laboratory from South America. This nightmare is only the beginning. Something Wants Out.

There is so much we don’t know about the Earth and what mysteries lie hidden in the corners of the world. Deep, dark secrets. So, are the events that happen in The Hatching beyond the realm of possibilities? No. Even if spiders creep you out, give this book a chance.

It’s chock full of CREEPY CRAWLY goodness.

This book will be published on July 5th, 2016 (yes, again, I was very lucky to get an ARC on this one).

FAVORITE:

Spiders.

Spiders creep me out. Even super tiny ones. I panic. Not so much when outdoors, but when they are indoors, NOPE.

I love this movie, but it is very hard for me to watch. And then I imagine I see spiders ALL the time. It’s the movie that keeps on giving 🙂

Movie Description:

Arachnophobia (1990): The story centers on a newly discovered Venezuelan spider being transported to a small American town that produces a new race of deadly spiders, which begin killing the town’s residents one by one.
