Book 2, The Hatching Series - The Hatching Series, Book 2

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Ezekiel Boone continues his shivery and wildly entertaining homage to classic horror novels with Skitter, the second book in his The Hatching series. There's a reason we're afraid of spiders...

Ezekiel Boone's astonishingly inventive debut, The Hatching, was a terrifying account of an apocalyptic week in which an ancient breed of carnivorous spiders woke from their 10,000-year slumber and caused carnage around the world. Then suddenly they started to die in waves, leaving shattered human survivors to take a deep, relieved breath, and begin to clean up the mess and rebuild their lives. But spider expert Melanie Guyer, and the crisis team the US president and her chief of staff has assembled around her, are pretty sure that this isn't the last they've seen of these eight-legged predators. Something else is coming, something connected to the eerie stashes of glowing white eggs the spiders left in places like LA's Staples Center--something very very bad.
     Something that will test the capacity of the entire human race to survive.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 06, 2017 – Boone's apocalyptic sequel to 2016's The Hatching picks up about 10 days into the end of the world. In the first book, Prof. Melanie Gruyer received a 10,000-year-old egg sac from Peru; it hatched flesh-eating spiders that rapidly spread all over the planet. The situation is now dire, and Melanie desperately tries to unlock the key to the spiders' destruction while nuclear bombs fall, cities burn, and corpses litter the streets. When the spiders start dying off, many see reason for hope, but Melanie is afraid something bigger is coming, and no one knows how to stop it. Returning readers will recognize FBI

A Great Read

Both books are well crafted. It is hard to mix horror and humour but this author does it flawlessly.
