Everyone is dead; they just haven’t figured it out yet. They won’t until they can see the spiders and by then … it’s too late!
Jason is filling in at the bar for his momma, his aunt just killed someone and he has to go rescue his sister. His friend, Sully is in 7th heaven because it is the zombie apocalypse and although he is without his weapons and in a bar that is no match for the zombie hordes he is their only expert.
At one point or another, each person feels a hot breath then the fine tickle of their body hair moving and for some they spy a spider just as it whips out of sight. How do you know if someone is infected? They don’t bleed even when they pop their eyes out or scratch a gaping hole in their arteries. Zombies that no one can stop, no matter what they do – they keep coming piece by pieced!
For four or five people, they survive only to find they have escaped into another form of captivity. The dark man makes his appearance – dark ash is left behind and his rotted smell and maniacal laughter haunt the survivors.
Did the government end the invisible spider invasion? Where did the spiders come from and why are they here? Who is the maniacal man? Stay tuned; I’m sure we will learn more with book 3. If you think you can handle the thought of more spiders …
For Mr. Davis I have to say one thing – yes, I’m now afraid of spiders again! A genuine horror writer that knows just how to terrify his readers and create nightmares that will NEVER end!
Darren Marlar did an excellent job of narrating. He did repeat a sentence or two a couple of times but I’m not sure if it was him or a glitch with the production as it sounded more mechanical. He inflected the right amount of terror into his voice. Marlar did an excellent job!
Production was not without issues. There were a couple of places in which it sounded rough – with sentences being repeated. I believe this may have happened twice. Other than this, it was a good production.

The town has been quarantined, but how can the military hope to contain invisible spiders? The aggressiveness of the infected is also making it impossible for the trapped survivors to find sanctuary.
The biggest problem continues to be the actual source of the spiders. Perhaps Book 3 will reveal more about the dark man who reeks of death.
Jason Davis has successfully taken a common phobia and turned it into an apocalyptic tsunami of pain, suffering and death. If you are hoping for a happy ending, don't.
Watch out for the spiders...
The first is Inside the Mirrors. The main character of this is Rob Aletto, an ex-Chicago cop and now small town part time cop. It is a standalone story to the following two books, but does provide a common character for all three books.
Next is Hatched, the first book in the Invisible Spiders series. This book has Rob Aletto in a more or less cameo appearance, and is set in a town about 30 miles away from Standard, the setting for the Inside the Mirrors.
Finally is Caught in the Web. This book has the author listed as Jason Davis as opposed to the other two which list the author as Jason R Davis, so an author link search in Audible won't show all three books. This book also features Rob Aletto as a lead character.
I got Caught in the Web as a review copy, and seeing it was part two, I purchased Hatched to listen to that first. Then the narrator kindly pointed out that Inside the Mirrors was related and also offered me a review copy of that, which I gladly accepted.
This book continues with the story begun in Hatched, and provides I feel a better story, with the same great ideas, but without the avalanche of too many character viewpoints. Like Inside the Mirrors, the story is told from the perspective of a smaller set of characters, making it easier to track in audio format. Also, as mentioned above, Rob from Inside the Mirrors is a lead in this book too. The idea of the spiders and the "zombies" was definitely a good twist on the idea, and I think I can safely say that of all the zombie variants I've encountered in fiction, these are the ones I'd less like to encounter... The book is book 2 in a series, but be assured that this book does form a complete and satisfying arc, and wraps up the story nicely. It did leave me pondering what direction will be taken next.
The narration was enjoyable, and I found it engaging, and had no issues understanding of having to re listen to passages. Voices were conveyed well enough.
The book has a good afterword by the author, I really think should be a forward (so you can hear before the story).
Overall, recommended for someone looking for a new zombie concept but be warned it really needs to be read in conjunction with the prior book.
