Summary: An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.
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.

Thoughts: It's been a hard process for me to find a books that I actually has the scary factor for me and I think I just found the book. This book accomplished that for me. I had no idea what to expect in this book when I first picked it up. All I knew was it had to do with spiders and fear. This book accomplished that. Just reading the description of the event in this book is scary enough to make me not get near an insect I don't recognize.

I really like the fact that all the characters of this book are connected in one way or another. It makes me enjoy the book more to discover the mystery behind the connection of the character. It was also interesting to see in every chapter how the events were affecting every aspect of the world. I think my only complain about the book is that I wish there was a little bit more towards the ending of the novel.

I do give the warning that if you are scare of spiders don't read this book. I really enjoyed it but I wouldn't give this book to my sister to read (she has a phobia of spiders). Because the descriptions of what the spiders do is very descripted. It gave me goose bumps in some of the description. It's been a while since I read a book like this and I was very happy to get this book because it wasn't something I have heard of. I was lucky to get my hands on it and I am thankful for being able to have read it this month. It was the perfect set of horror and suspense. Just what I needed.

I really don't want to say much more of the book because it was so good and the fact that I haven't heard of it made it so perfect. I didn't know what to expect which is rare for me to experience. The sad thing is that it's not a stand alone. It does have a sequel coming out next year. Which I will be waiting to get my hands on it until it's release.
