Hugely entertaining, suitably creepy, plenty of action. Middle act of this trilogy where ancient spiders have reawakened and humans are rapidly waking up to the reality of no longer being top of the food chain. Boone returns to the ranging narrative, jumping from California to DC, Peru to India, Scotland to Japan. From marines to a con-man preacher, mystery author to a survivalist, arachnologist to Presidential chief of staff, television producer to FBI agent. Stories of the military trying to burn out egg sacks, scientists attempting to figure out the mechanics of the infestation, civilians trying to flee, individuals noticing patterns, and everyday people struggling to survive in ingenious ways. The action may lull as the first wave of spiders have died, but the tension constantly ratchets up. And when the next wave is imminent, those in the know have a growing sense of dread. The United States is fractured, the world is on a precipice, and something has woken up. Recommended, but maybe not if you live in a place replete with spiders.

I hate leaving books unfinished but that's the only reason I finished. It was dull, too many characters and none of them particularly likable.
