It sounds like a bad B-movie, but it actually works. There were some truly unforgettable scenes in this book that the author has you seeing in your head…a close encounter of the big arachnid kind in a movie theater, a shootout in a hospital with a chick named Maggie (who is freaking scary in her own right), and a final showdown on a small foggy farm with a monster that is as creepily alien as it is powerful. And those are just a few. There’s even a philosophical theory on dating that I guarantee you have never heard before.

The characters are the other strong point, and they carry the book between action scenes. I still haven’t decided which is my favorite…either Olivia, Billy, or maybe even Maggie. It’s a big book, but definitely worth your time.

Spiderstalk is a hard book do put down. Even before finishing the Prologue I knew that the reading would be fun and full of guilty pleasures. Let me explain that... when I see a spider, even a small one, I usually feel like running, and when cornered by the horrible arachnid, I might jump 10 feet to escape. That’s why I felt a guilty pleasure reading about giant spiders terrorizing innocent people: the universal feeling Lucretius described as “suave mare magno”. But I digress.
The book isn’t just about giant spiders though. As the plot unravels, the story will prove to be much more elaborated than that. I recommend to prospective readers to avoid spoiling the story: just grab this book and start reading, and let yourself be surprised.
Regarding Hilliard’s style, I can honestly say that I’ve found a gem. The flow and readability are near perfect, which is surprising, considering the lexical variability of his choice, the book is never “wordy” (despite its nearly 500 pages). If you pay attention, you’ll find a pattern of short paragraphs followed by a longer, more descriptive paragraph. The dialogues are fluid and sound natural, especially when a character thinks about the reaction his words might have on other characters, or when his lines are in dissonance to what he’s really feeling. It adds to the realism, which is, again, surprising, considering the subject of this book. Adam’s suffering due to the aftereffects of a terrible accident are very touching and realistic, you can really feel the emotional and physical struggle he’s going through.
The descriptions of settings and locations are memorable. A vivid scene is painted and that helps to situate the reader inside the story. This effect owes much to the choice of setting as well.

When I discovered that 'Spiderstalk' had to do with giant spiders, I was giddy with anticipation; as anything small, becoming giant, is right up my alley! However, I am going to tell you right now that the spiders that Hilliard has created are not your typical "cheesy" B-Budget Sci-Fi kind of spiders. Hilliard makes them absolutely terrifying! All you have to do is just read the Prologue, and you will see what I am talking about. But don't stop there!
There is so much more to this book than just giant spiders!

Hilliard has created an epic masterpiece with this novel, dealing with secret societies, Native American folklore, a centuries long tribal war, etc, and he just happens to add some spiders (ranging anywhere from two feet to forty plus feet!) in the mix.

Hilliard is one of those authors that draws you completely into the world that he has created, and once you have entered it is difficult to leave, let me yell you!
(My wife jokingly says that I am not going to be allowed to read Hilliard's next book, as I get so enraptured in his stories.)

I really don't want to say too much more about this book, other than the fact that this book will make an excellent gift for a reader in your life, and not just for horror fans! Anyone who enjoys a quick escape from reality will enjoy reading this novel!

D. Nathan Hilliard offers the reader a rich story that is defined by a well-refined writing style that eloquently expresses a clearly well-thought out plot which encompasses a wide variety of dynamic characters. I admire how the author isn't scared to write with a raw, uncensored writing style that doesn't leave out any `questionable' parts. This definitely adds a lot of substance to the book and it's a huge factor of why I enjoyed this story so much. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future releases by the author, if you're looking for a refreshingly new twist on the genre then I highly recommend you check this author out; Nathan has a lot to offer and is bound to impress even the most critical fans of the genre

Spiderstalk was actually a really exciting book! I've usually only seen these kinds of plots in movies, but I really enjoyed this book because it was a much more detailed and lengthy experience.

The author, D. Nathan Hilliard did a great job of writing in a way that kept my interest. Many times I found myself holding my breath because some of the events were so thrilling! I like how complicated and complex the plot got, definitely wasn't expecting the kind of revelations that emerged in our main character, Adam's, life.

Serious readers will really enjoy this read and be pleasantly surprised in a variety of ways. Spiderstalk is an absolute thrill!
