Lovereading view...

An old-fashioned and high concept novel, the first in a new series, this is destined for the bestseller lists and the screen in sheer overdrive. Like a throwback to 1950s atomic menace horror movies, this is both lurid and captivating as Boone unleashes a plague of man-eating spiders on the world. Reminiscent of Michael Crichton at his best, particularly Jurassic Park, albeit with a different abominable menace, this is a wild ride with thrills and menace oozing between the lines and a globe-spanning plot with a gallery of characters both personal and political madly attempting to stem the death march of the invincible insects. Not one for arachnophobes, but will do for spiders what the aforementioned Crichton blockbuster did for dinosaurs. Either you'll want to rush out and buy it, or you'll deliberately avoid it like the plague, depending on how you feel about the little creatures in question! ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

The Hatching by Ezekiel Boone

The first female president of the United States is summoned to an emergency briefing. Deep in the jungle of Peru, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist party whole. FBI agent Mike Rich investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Indian earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. The Chinese government accidentally drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. And all of these events are connected. As panic begins to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at Melanie Guyer's Washington laboratory. The unusual egg inside begins to crack. Something is spreading...The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An virulent ancient species of spiders, long dormant, is now very much awake. But this is only the beginning of our end...

Reviews

'It is skilfully written and entirely gripping - I think it is likely to be a best seller, and I would recommend you give it a go...' Nudge Books

'a thoroughly entertaining, deliciously skin-crawling horror thriller that you'll like it with or without the spiders falling on your lap as you read it' For Winter's Nights

'The inclusion of events and voices from around the world add to the growing suspense and excitement and, if you aren't scared of spiders, the idea of a carnivorous swarm of eight-legged homicidal maniacs, is enough to keep you turning the pages.' The Book Beard Blog

'Brace yourself for sleepless nights' SFX

'A rattlingly entertaining read' STARBURST

'A sprawling and shamelessly compulsive adventure, this is a pleasingly fast-paced read that manages to combine smoothly crafted prose and sharp details with a selection of entertainingly gruesome shocks.' SFX

'Arachnophobes, move on. This is not for the likes of you.' THE FINANCIAL TIMES

'A high-octane thriller it is great fun and a real page-turner.' DAILY EXPRESS

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
