My Rating: 4.5 Stars!
In the thrilling, nerve-wracking finale of Ezekiel Boone’s “hair-raising” (Parade) Hatching series, the United States goes to war against the queen spiders that threaten to overtake the human race forever.
The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come.
The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer’s theory that we need to kill only the queens?
For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it’s an easy answer. She’s gone as far as she can—more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder—and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don’t agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what’s more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?
The Hatching series has been like an utterly terrifying, utterly fascinating horror show that plays out in a deliciously slow, deliciously tantalizing pace that will leave you jumping at shadows and turning the lights on before entering a room. Not looking for the usual two legged monsters but instead, the kind of the eight leg variety. The kind that bite and borrow and hide in dark places, ready to pounce and fall on you in a moments notice. The kind of nightmares.
The creepy crawlies that leave almost anyone screaming, with their heart trying to frantically gallop right out of their chest. This is a series that is worth every single moment of breathlessness it will leave you not to mention the sleepless nights with the light burning bright on and the covers pulled clear up to your chin.
It has been a terrifying roller coaster of a ride from the very first page of the very first book and didn't let up until the very satisfying end.
Truly a masterpiece of suspense, horror, and terrifying what ifs. This is a series you don't want to miss out on. I've loved every deliciously dark and agonizing page. One that will truly not be forgotten.
