A large horde of the spiders take over the small village of Newtown, killing all but two of its residents. Laurence Johnson and Chloe Jones have only been together one night after Laurence parted ways with his wife. They find themselves trapped in the house with no way of escaping. Their only hope is to try and stay alive long enough for the army to intervene. Lorna Johnson is on the outskirts of town with nowhere to go and the spider invasion taking control. Her only hope of survival lies with a team headed up by Doctor Michael Briggs. He has a plan to stop the invasion before it gets out of hand. But he is running out of time and he is running out of allies. If he doesn’t move quickly then mankind will face the darkest day it has ever known.

My Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Simple, affective horror.

An author with an uncanny nack of taking the simplest of scares,the simplest of everyday fears and playing upon them. This book as with all of this authors novels are full of characters that are ultimately and fittingly flawed, imperfect. Characters and storyline you can totally get on board with and relate to on a completely human level. A story that will crawl Into you mind and play on your deep seeded fears with more to come. Ace!

“There is nothing better than a good horror story, something to make you squirm in your seat as you turn the pages. Just like going on a rollercoaster, you want to be pushed to the limit, knowing that you’ll be safe and well when you come out of the other side. These are the things that make you feel alive, or undead, depending on your outlook…”
