YES! YES! YES! I had been eagerly awaiting the third instalment of The Hatching series since last year when I read Skitter last year. Seeing the spiders hatch, take over and seeing the apocalypse on the horizon, I couldn’t wait to watch the United States go to war against the queen spiders; Zero Day by Ezekiel Boone had arrived!! Truthfully, if anyone had told me that I would be anticipating a book about killer spiders, I would have looked at them like they were crazy. But, alas, here we are!
One of my favourite things about the writing style of Boone is his ability to take tons of characters, both major and minor, and blend them effortlessly together. All characters are fully developed and each with their own POV. This could end up being confusing the Boone’s execution is brilliant and it ends up adding continuous layers to the plot.
Another fast paced, action packed novel that had me up late into the night and my eyes glued to the pages, but, I have to say, I feel like the ending was a little lacklustre for me. I think I wanted a big SHABANG at the end and it turned out to be a little bit meh. Mind you, this was a trilogy, so I knew it had to come to an end but I wish there would have been a bit more development so the ending could have been drawn out a little more.
I know I will read anything that Boone publishes in the future and cannot wait to see what he will come up with next!
Thanks to the author, the publisher and Netgalley for a copy of this novel; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review.
Of course, Chandra and Jessica gave this one a read with me! In fact, the first book in this series, The Hatching, was one of the first books that Chandra and I read together!
Keep reading to see what Chandra and Jessica thought of this one!

The second wave is coming…..
After reading, The Hatching (the first in this trilogy by Ezekiel Boone- you read my review for that one here), I was beyond excited when I was approved for Skitter. I could not wait to read it!! I actually was lucky enough to read this book as a buddy read last NOVEMBER because I needed someone to share my thoughts with while I was reading! I read the book, wrote the review and then waited. I didn’t want to talk about this one too early, but I cannot hold it in anymore! This one is a seriously intense read!
