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.
Miss those old Steven King books, like Cujo and Pet Cematary, that were about something we all know, like our pets, that just scared the bejezuz out of you and gave you nightmares for weeks? This debut novel (!!) picks up that gauntlet and brings back the genre in full force! This is NOT a book to read late at night, unless you want to be seeing things in the shadows of your bedrooms! I don't want to give much away, except to say one word: Spiders. Lots and lots of spiders.....yeah, you just had the skin crawl, right? See! The book appears to be the start of a series featuring different characters, which is cool, as it will gives us some more of that missing genre! Don't miss this debut if you love these types of books!
