Publisher's Summary

Isla Perdida has been untouched by humans for hundreds of years. Until now. A team of researchers has landed on the rocky shores of this dangerous landscape and discover that a horrific predator is waiting for them. It doesn't take long for this deadly arachnid to make its way from the humid island jungle to the American mainland. As this new threat terrorizes Southern Florida, a murderous infection begins to spread. Victims are piling up, and death is not the worst of it.

Kala is a high school sophomore. She's tough, smart, and just a little awkward. She watches as terror grips her hometown, and the people she thought she knew turn against each other. Kala, her family, and her best friend, Abigail, band together and struggle to survive this dangerous new place that was once their peaceful home. Pathosis is an adventure through a landscape of horror.

Captivating and scary

An exciting, well thought out audiobook that captures your attention from the very start with great hooks both in the first sentence of the prolog and at the start of chapter one. Once you are hooked it is difficult to put the book down, as the story captures your imagination and scares the pants right off you. 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. It is a creepy, captivating story that, once you start, you won't be able to put down. I received this audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review

Love these kinds of stories!

Thank the author for knowing that profanity overuse is not welcome! That being said, this book kept me on the edge of my seat! Even knowing what was about to happen didn't dilute the thrill! I wish I'd never listened to this book so I could listen all over again!

Don't bother

This book took WAY to long to get going. I found myself not playing attention and not caring what I'd missed. The characters felt fake. The reactions overblown and they just didn't feel real. The story jumped around too much and it totally broke up the flow of the book. Total waste of a credit.

The narrator reminded me of someone reading a book to toddlers.

Just Terrible!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story could have been good. The wording is strange, like it was written in the 60's with an occasional eff bomb?! I kept getting the feeling the writer was not familiar with English? Narrator is bad, just bad..

Typical Action packed Spider Zombie Madness

Story was pretty straight forward, with just the right amount of character development, and just enough "wtf" moments where the characters do stupid stuff that make you want to yell at them, which is almost required in Horror. This is more of a syfy saturday matinee than a classic that will stand the test of time. What I'm saying here is don't set your sites too high, its entertainment folks. The reader almost killed it with her flat reading, but she warms up about a third of the way into the book. Hang in there. Interesting premise and exciting scenes keep this book on the high side of three stars.

Best Plague Book Ever

Kala, typical high school sophomore girl by day, awesome closet scientist, and loving big sister by night. But it is what happens to their city that changes everything.

This is not exactly a zombie book, but it is one of the best plague type books I have read, well listened too. I loved the side story that explained how the virus got to Florida in the first place, that was really cool, especially since I don't live there. It also really liked the how the story shows how the virus spreads and the only way to stop it as of that time. The book was very precise without the reader knowing it, no facts and figures but still precise.

I had the audio version narrated by Melanie Ewbank and she does a awesome job. There was one spot I knew it was coming because I actually did the books backwards, but she was so good with her voices and the emotions she puts into them she had me crying. Ms. Ewbank is just a awesome narrator and this is just a awesome book.
