"Ezekiel Boone follows up his terrifying "apocalyptic extravaganza of doom and heroism" (Publishers Weekly) The Hatching with Skitter, the horrifying sequel in which the carnivorous spiders are running rampant--but for what's left of humanity, the worst is yet to come. 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 Gruyer, 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"-- Provided by publisher.
"The second installment in The Hatching series, in which it is revealed that though the first phase of a terrifying attack by an ancient species is over, the second phase is about to begin; bigger carnivores are coming and they plan to colonize the earth"-- Provided by publisher.

strange book - the characters are well fleshed out but the plot doesn't do them justice -so often they're just killed off. Still, there's a building urgency in the overall picture that keeps you engaged.

Ezekiel Boone's second book in the Hatching series is just as exciting and terrifying as the first, as the spiders begin to spread across America and the world in a seemingly unstoppable apocalypse, even as the government takes even more drastic actions against an enemy unlike anything that humanity as ever faced. Like the first novel, this one is filled with gruesome horror, and ends in another cliffhanger that ensures the reader will anxiously await this trilogy's conclusion.
