Thank you to NetGalley for providing a free ebook copy of Skitter By: Ezekiel Boone in exchange for an honest review.
Short Review Summary:
I still have the heebie jeebies.
When I read The Hatching (Click to read my review.) back in June I couldn't wait to get my hands on the sequel, Skitter. Even though the first one made me want to set my house on fire when I saw a spider I knew I had to read the next one. Skitter definitely gave me the heebie jeebies as well. Damn spiders are creepy!
Skitter has the same style and writing as the first one and it's done just as well. The writing flows wonderfully and I was able to get right back into it easily. Also, Boone does a great job of reminding you what happened in The Hatching without dragging it out or being boring. I had no issues getting back into the story and that's not always the case for me with sequels.
I like that Skitter has a lot about dealing with the aftermath and some tough choices that need to be made. Everyone is trying to figure out, what do we do now?? I really enjoyed seeing that and I can't wait to see what all will happen in the next book. Especially since this one leaves a few loose ends.
Overall Skitter is very well done and a bit creepy. Spiders terrify me, but I absolutely loved this book just as much as I did the first. Now I just have one issue. Since this one isn't out yet, how will I wait so long for book three???
I recommend Skitter for fans of the Arachnophobia movie and to fans of apocalyptic novels. Also, if you read The Hatching and loved it, you definitely need to see what happens in book two!
