Zero Day by Ezekiel Boone is the final book in the Hatching series. The series has taken us through an apocalyptic disaster involving spiders. Told from multiple perspectives from around the world, we get the third-person POV accounts of man’s reactions and attempts to survive. While we didn’t get as much time with the eight-legged monsters, Boone delivered an intense climax.
I bought The Fireman audiobook, by Joe Hill last year after devouring NOS42A and then it sat as my TBR pile demanded my attention. From the very first chapter, Hill grabbed me. This brilliant original story reminded me of early Stephen King and Mira Grant’s Parasite series. If you haven’t tried Hill I encourage you to do so.
I loved NOS42A which was my first Joe Hill book, so I was excited at the chance to review Strange Weather a collection of four short stories on audiobook. With a stellar cast of narrators, I quickly became caught up in these haunting and disturbing tales.
*Shivers* Thank you, Mira Grant, for the nightmares. May I have another? Into the Drowning Deep is the first novel in the Rolling in the Deep series touching on mythology as it spins science fiction, and fantasy into a brilliant, terrifying oceanic horror story.
When I received Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant for review, I knew it was time to grab my Kindle and read the prequel Rolling in the Deep. I absolutely love Grants blend of horror, science fiction, and fantasy. Rolling in the Deep was a dark, freaky, twisted tale on mermaids that sets up the first full-length book perfectly.
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King was one of my most anticipated fall audio listens, and I am shocked and sad to say, I was not impressed. To be fair, I went into this cold, as I do all of King’s books and didn’t read the synopsis. It is indeed a world where men have to learn to deal without women. If this weren’t King, I probably would have DNFed this around the 50% mark.
GWENDY”S BUTTON BOX by Stephen King & Richard Chizmar was a riveting, twisted audio listen. Narrated by the wickedly talented Maggie Siff, King and Chizmar worked their magic and transported me to the summer of 1974 as our tale begins on the Suicide Stairs in Castle Rock. Would you accept Gwendy’s Button Box?
RED FOX by Karina Halle is the second novel in the Experiment in Terror series. Jo Raylan continues to narrate and I am happy to report RED FOX was a stronger, creeper tale than its predecessor. Myths, supernatural occurrences, awkward moments and Perry’s rambling mind made for a page-turning listen.
