Violet Eyes by John Everson [ 4.5 stars ]



From the Description:


Their bites are more than deadly...

The small town near the Everglades was supposed to offer Rachel and her son a fresh start. Instead it offered the start of a nightmare, when an unknown breed of flies migrated through the area, leaving painful bites in their wake. The media warned people to stay inside until the swarm passed. But the flies didn't leave. And then the radios and TVs went silent.

That's when the spiders came. Spiders that could spin a deadly web large enough to engulf an entire house overnight. Spiders that left stripped bones behind as they multiplied. Spiders that, like the flies, sought hungrily for tender flesh... through Violet Eyes


While I'm not afraid of spiders, this book gave me shivers! Realistic science and characters you come to care for make this a great read. At one point while I was reading my hair tickled my neck and I shrieked. So glad I was alone LOL. Fast paced and fun, Violet Eyes is a novel you don't want to miss! The story grabs you and you don't want to put it down until your finished! I'll be hoping for a sequel! A solid 4.5 stars.
