I enjoyed the book - narration was great, the characters were fairly interesting and the premise was fine and made believable. But this is just the first part of a full novel: at the "end" the characters had not grown,the threat hadn't been beaten (or not beaten), and honestly the characters had done nothing but stand around and watch stuff happen. The whole book was simply "Act I" of a monster story.
I am looking forward to seeing what happens with the characters and what the next step in the monsters' evolution is... but this isn't the first book of a trilogy, it's the first third of a book. And since the last parts haven't been written yet, I wish I had known that going in.

This is not a bad book and it is not a good book. Believe all the reviews that are three stars or less. While there are some spider yucky scenes, this book is basically written to draw you into the next book. The book is more about relationships and who is sleeping with who. When you find out the married woman is sleeping with another man, don't feel bad for him, cause he is sleeping with someone else. No such thing as a happy marriage in this book. We bounce back and forth between several characters, which are in the story to make it book length.
Other reviewers have complained about today's writers, writing for the series or the Trilogy. That today's books are not full stories, just teasers to get you to buy the next book. This is another one of those. In the horror section, about the only authors that can be trusted to write a full story is Stephen King and Joe Hill. It is even worse in the Sci-Fi section. This had potential, but I am not going to support this type of writing anymore, and will not get book 2.
The narrator is very monotone, which does not help.
