Aracho-Undead, ugh!! Squish them!!!
I always enjoy it when a book picks up where the last left off, and this picks up right after Hatched. It is also a series, so I don't know how many books there will be, but if they are all as good as the first two in this series, then I hope it has a long shelf life. Despite being a series, this book does tie things up fairly neatly, so at this time I haven't got a clue a to which direction it will take, and I like that. This work is anything but predictable. Further, it has added even more horror to an already terrifying genre. Zombies are bad enough, but getting spiders that crawl under your skin is soooooo much worse. So Kudos to you Mr. Davis, for raising a bar I didn't think could go any higher.
The story is much better managed, less main characters on POV's t shoot through, and the creepiness is really amped up. Can you imagine having to kill a loved one because they came flying through a window to kill you? I really don't know what is worse, hearing a thud in the night and thinking it could be a zombie, or actually having a spider crawl across a part of your body and then remembering this book.
Marlar does a fantastic job narrating, and knows how to build tension. I almost think he could pull off a typical movie jump scare (like when a cat yowls and leaps on screen for no discernable reason).
I cannot say how much fun this book is, the story, characters, and the aracho-undead just cuts through all of the stuff in life bogging you down and takes you on a journey that you may not come back from the same.

Interesting take on the zombie genre
This was an interesting book - much better than I expected. As the second book in the series, I fully expected to not understand characters and their relationships and grasp the current situation. I have to say, this is one of the few books that I've read as part of a series without reading the previous installments first that actually made sense. I don't feel like I was missed much by not having read the initial book though I would guess it's at least as interesting as this book. The 'zombies' were unusual from the typical zombie we're used to in current media. I liked it, it was a nice change. The story developed a good momentum and while many of the characters were certainly not likable, they were interesting. I'd definitely check out another book by this author. (Three and a half stars for the story, but I round up.)
The narrator did a great job giving the characters their own voice and feeling. I look forward to hearing more of his work in the future.
I received this book free of charge from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
