*I received a eARC of this book for my honest review*
Tens of millions of people around the world are dead. Half of China is a nuclear wasteland. Mysterious flesh-eating spiders are marching through Los Angeles, Oslo, Delhi, Rio de Janeiro, and countless other cities. According to scientist Melanie Gruyer, however, the spider situation seems to be looking up. Yet in Japan, a giant, truck-sized, glowing egg sack gives a shocking preview of what is to come, even as survivors in Los Angeles panic and break the quarantine zone. Out in the desert, survivalists Gordo and Shotgun are trying to invent a spider super weapon, but it’s not clear if it’s too late, because President Stephanie Pilgrim has been forced to enact the plan of last resort: The Spanish Protocol. America, you are on your own.
I read the first book last year because I had won it and I very much enjoyed it so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.
This book is fast paced but I found it could use more action.
I found Skitter to be not as creepy as The Hatching but all in all, it is a good read.
There is a cliffhanger and now I have to wait until the next book comes out. I hope we don't have to wait very long because I can't wait to read more.
I give this 4 out of 5
