My Review:An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.
Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. During the same week, the Chinese government “accidentally” drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.
The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake.
The Hatching came out earlier this week on July 5, 2016, you can purchase HERE, and this one will creep you out; definitely recommended! A bit in the same vein as this one, I would be remiss if I didn't mention my other favorite summer horror book, The Ruins by Scott B. Smith -- so good and perfect if like to read horror in the summer!
Melanie never understood the panic that people felt about spiders. What was it that made people so afraid? Was it the eight legs, each limb both separate and a part of the spider? Or, with larger spiders, was it the hair? Was there something about seeing something as familiar as hair on something as alien as a spider that made people take leave of their senses?
