The Hatching #2

by Ezekiel Boone



Genre:  Horror

My Review

I really enjoyed The Hatching so it was a no brainer to continue with the series.

Everyone breathes a sigh of relief. The spiders have died. Could it be over? Is it time to rebuild and get back to life as they know it? Not so fast.

Scientists and experts have been studying the spiders and the egg sacs discovered hidden across the planet. They find some horrifying indications that the worst is yet to come. When it all starts falling apart again it’s every man for themselves as countries are devastated and drastic measures are taken to contain the threat.

I was super excited for this book. I met some great characters that survived the first book and wanted to know what would happen to them. One group in particular, hiding in a luxury fall out shelter, were among my favorites. I could almost see them and had to laugh at some of things they said and did. And they had a dog too. Always love the furry companions. And worrying if it would be eaten by spiders sure added to my worries about the stories outcome.

Even though the book had me jumping from one place to the next and one scenario to the next, it wasn’t hard to follow and I enjoyed the scientific parts. The only thing lacking was spiders. I wish there were more attacks. Sure, there were some, but I missed the endless hordes of spiders creeping and crawling, unstoppable and hungry.

I didn’t realize the series didn’t end with Skitter. There’s an ending of sorts but lots more to be told. I’ll be waiting for what comes next.

   4  Stars



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 scientist Melanie Guyer, however, the spider situation seems to be looking up. Yet in Japan, a giant, truck-sized, glowing egg sack 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 spider super weapon, but it’s not clear if it’s too late, because President Stephanie Pilgrim has been forced to enact the plan of last resort: The Spanish Protocol. America, you are on your own.



And some spidey madness just for fun!

      I find it funny that I’m so scared of spiders and love to read horror books about them. LOL Tomorrow will be about the Loch Ness Monster. Hope you’re not scared of it. LOL

  2. Omgawd! Thanks for that video! Hahahahahaha..XD

  3. I keep meaning to start this one after loving the first one so much. I know the gang at the fallout shelter you speak of and they are some of my favorites too. I hope no animals (Dogs, cats) die in this one. Have you see the cover for the next one? It’s one of my favorites so far.

  4. Ooh, a spider dog!….and I thought they were extinct.

  5. Good one Kathryn. lol I loved this book. It’s even better because spiders freak me out.

      There must be something wrong with us, right? We can’t stand the nasty things but love horror stories about them. Kathryn made me laugh out loud!

  6. I am having fun with this series and agree despite jumping from storyline to storyline I had no problems following along.

  7. I almost bought the Hatching but the cover is full of spiders and it freaked me out too much so I put it back! Couldn’t they just use a non threatening web or something??? I do have it on my ereader though.
