The occurrences in this book are not outside the realms of possibility, and I think it is that, more than the spiders, that makes this book so creepy. If you are afraid of spiders though, this book defiantly won't help you overcome that fear. They are big, nasty and aggressive but they are really only the lead into a more complex story that illustrates just how fragile human kind is and how nature really has the controlling hand. The narrator did a great job, the characters were well defined and she managed to convey the emotion, tension and horror contained within the book.

Once again, the author has created an action packed, nail biting and addicting read. The plot is fast paced and gripping, the characters are all we developed and written and it's easy to become invested in their story. I can not wait to see what else the author will come up with for these characters.
Melanie Ewbank did a great job with the narration. She was easy to listen to and held my attention throughout.
