Skitter follows the formula that made The Hatching such a success, but it branches out and finds its own path with new ways to surprise and repel you. I’m always going to wish for more Mike POVs, as well as Gordo and Shotgun perspectives – these are my favorite characters; and while I’m interested to see what’s happening elsewhere, I can’t help but be sad to leave them, if only for a little while. I don’t want to say anything about the plot of this sequel because I don’t want to spoil anyone, not just for this book but for its predecessor. The ending was a cliffhanger that made me a bit grouchy because I want MORE MORE MORE. I read Skitter right on the heels of The Hatching, so I know waiting for the next book to release in 2018 is going to be red-striped-spider-bite excruciating. I’ll be ready to grab it, though, as this has quickly become a favorite series! Highly recommend for thriller and horror fans.
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
