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.

I enjoyed The Hatching but this one just really felt like a filler novel to get us to the last one where I am hoping some sort of action occurs because this was just freaking boring. We get glimpses at those people from the last book that are still alive and kicking plus some I didn't remember. T...
SPIDERS! HELL YEAH! Even though I loathe the things in real life, I find them so entertaining to read about when done well. Skitter is done very well! We start right where The Hatching left off, (which was with a cliffhanger), and I found it quite easy to slip right back into this world-well...
This is the second in the series of the spider-apocalypse. The first being 'The Hatching". This one starts after the spiders have hatched and killed millions of people and now they have retreated. They have only hit a few cities, but they are all over the world. There is no rhyme or reason to the lo...
