A small town near the Everglades will be a new start for
Rachel and her son, but that quickly turns into a nightmare
when an unknown breed of flies migrate through the area.
Their bites are painful and people are warned to stay
indoors until they leave. The problem is, they didn't. And
now the TVs and radios are silent. Next came the spiders.
These spiders could spin a web big enough to take over a
house overnight. The humans inside were stripped down to
their bones and the spiders were multiplying. When will it
VIOLET EYES has turned out to be one of my favorite novels
Bram Stoker Award-winning author, John Everson. It had
enough creep out moments, fear laced tension and nail-biting
pages to keep me satisfied and more. There's something to be
said about a deluge of bugs that can kill you. Gives me
shivers just typing it. Then again I grew up with films such
as "Creepshow", and the segment with the old man and the
roaches... Everson doesn't hold back in this one.
VIOLET EYES a very
quick read that leaves you wanting more. Besides the creepy
subject matter, the characters pop off the page with life,
and the situations are ick inducing and enthralling. There
are no slow spots as the plot races to its finish. Buy this
one, read it, and read it again - once in the daytime, and
once at night, under one of those glowing bug zappers, if
you dare. Then lend it to a horror-loving friend.
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 didnít leave. And then the radios and
TVs went silent.
Thatís 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.
