Skitter by Ezekiel Boone
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Ezekiel Boone, why are you doing this to me? You can't leave me hanging like this!!!! How long will I have to wait, unable to move or scream or even blink, for the third book?
If you weren't terrified of spiders before this series... if book one didn't increase that fear tenfold... then this book HAD to have seriously upped the scary level enough to produce some semblance of a reaction. Like man-eating swarms of spiders wasn't enough... like spiders that cut a hole and slip into your body unnoticed and lay eggs that burst forth like the movie alien couldn't be sufficient, Boone succeeds in kicking the fear up a notch. The spiders from the first book? Yeah, they're just the first wave... and wait until you see the second...
Awesome books. Fast and easy to read -- very movie-like quality to them. I'm super excited for book three. Too bad book two's actual release (this was an ARC) is months away, meaning book three is probably a year away at least. Oh well, it's not like I'm going anywhere, wrapped in silky threads and unable to scream... I'll be here... waiting for what's coming.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
