Megan’s family died in a freak accident and nine months later, she is still grieving and struggling to move on. She joins a church group going on a camping trip in the West Virginian national forest. The trip starts off with some hiccups, as some of those on the bus are at each other’s throats and the guide doesn’t actually seem to know where he’s going. They end up in an untouched part of the forest and once their group starts disappearing one by one, it becomes clear why. There is a prehistoric arachnid alive and well in this part of the forest and it is hungry. It can track their vibrations, making it difficult to escape. Those who are left have to work together and their only choice is Don’t Move.
I’ve read other books by these authors and I’ve always enjoyed them; this one was no exception. The accident at the beginning was the scariest part because it seemed more probably than a prehistoric arachnid, but the scene in the lair and the hospital were pretty terrifying as well. There is nothing too deep going on here, just a fun, thrilling horror-filled ride. Sometimes that is exactly what you are looking for. As if I didn’t hate spiders enough. I highly recommend it if you enjoy creature horror stories. You might think twice about camping in an unknown region.
