Finally, the ‘explosive’ conclusion to The Hatching series by Ezekiel Boone, “Zero Day”.
” In the thrilling, nerve-wracking finale of Ezekiel Boone’s “hair-raising” (Parade) Hatching series, the United States goes to war against the queen spiders that threaten to overtake the human race forever.”
Zero Day (Expected Release Date: February 27, 2018)
The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come.
The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer’s theory that we need to kill only the queens.
For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it’s an easy answer. She’s gone as far as she can—more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder—and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don’t agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what’s more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?

First thing I’m going to say, is thank God this book was longer than the first two! The first two books were sooooo good but so frustratingly short, I wanted to throw my Kobo! “Zero Day” thankfully, is a full-length novel (322 pgs).
But as long as this one was, it lacked then same creep factor of the other books and that was disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, it is still very good, it just didn’t hook me like the others. Especially the first one because for me, the fun is in the chaos. This book was more about the aftermath and I wanted more carnage!
What IS really cool about this book is how thorough it is. You will not be left with any loose ends or questions regarding either the story or any of the main characters. The storyline, origin and character arcs are fully fleshed out which is very important for a reader like me. I’m not crazy about cliff-hangers.
Honestly, “Zero Day” is a very strong conclusion to the series and while it may not have them same scare factor as the first two books, it is still very entertaining. Personally, I think I would have enjoyed this series as one large novel instead of a trilogy but that’s just me.
Friendly tip, it could be really fun to read them all together once “Zero Day” is released.
