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

Big ass creepy spiders!!!

Well firstly, this has spiders in it! Secondly, this has big ass spiders in it and thirdly, this has big ass deadly spiders in it!!! I think I forgot to mention the spiders this has in it ;) *Shudders*.

I'm not a fan of spiders, just in case you couldn't tell, but I wanted to give this a try cause it sounded too good to pass, and while it may be totally unbelievable, it was such an entertaining read. I think if you go into it with the attitude that it's simply a great story then you will enjoy it. Don't go into it expecting a believable story because this isn't it!

The plot was fast paced, creepy and totally shudder inducing. The idea of an unknown species of deadly spiders the size of your palm was extremely and utterly terrifying. The idea that they contain a deadly virus was even worse, then add in the fact that it spreads to the mosquitoes, well that was just the icing on the cake!!

Anyway, this book caught my attention from the very first page and didn't let go till the very end. It's a well thought out and executed story and one that will stay with me for a while, I still check every shoe I put on just in case ;) Not for the faint of heart but a book that I highly recommend.

Melanie Ewbank was awesome. There are quite a few characters but she manages to make each one separate and gives them their own voice. She was easy to listen to and drew me into the story.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
