"An apocalyptic extravaganza of doom and heroism...addictive." --Publishers Weekly

"This is a fresh take on classic horror, thoroughly enjoyable and guaranteed to leave your skin crawling." --Michael Koryta, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Wish Me Dead

"Guaranteed to do what Jaws did to millions of people." --Suspense Magazine

An astonishingly inventive and terrifying debut novel about the emergence of an ancient species, dormant for over a thousand years, and now on the march.

Deep in the jungle of Peru, where so much remains unknown, a black, skittering mass devours an American tourist whole. Thousands of miles away, an FBI agent investigates a fatal plane crash in Minneapolis and makes a gruesome discovery. Unusual seismic patterns register in a Kanpur, India earthquake lab, confounding the scientists there. During the same week, the Chinese government "accidentally" drops a nuclear bomb in an isolated region of its own country. As these incidents begin to sweep the globe, a mysterious package from South America arrives at a Washington, D.C. laboratory. Something wants out.

The world is on the brink of an apocalyptic disaster. An ancient species, long dormant, is now very much awake.

Monsters, mad science, and meat-munching mayhem propel a B movie plot reinforced by plausible characters behaving logically in crises. A swarming black mass devours tourists in Peru; divorced U.S. Special Agent Mike Rich discovers a nasty secret in a crashed plane; China inexplicably nukes an isolated region of its land; and an ancient Nazca sack hatches in Prof. Melanie Guyer’s laboratory, releasing hordes of deadly spiders. Mike, Melanie, and the American president prepare for a terrifying arachnid invasion, wondering how they can succeed against an enemy “designed to feed.” Boone weaves believable dialogue and characterizations into an apocalyptic extravaganza of doom and heroism. Pulp theatrics and vicious spider attacks are lent surprising credibility by social context. Though it doesn’t reinvent the pulp formula, this addictive literary assault certainly reinvigorates it. (July)
