So here we are at the end of the trilogy. One way or another this apocalypse is coming to an end; it’s us or them.
I’ve been going through a bit of a funk with books in a series, or the never-ending series; I’ve grown to fully appreciate the trilogy, there is something to look forward to, the suspense of a great cliffhanger, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As I was reading Zero Day, I thought that this series would have been an epic book to read straight through, all one thousand-ish pages.
One thing that I loved with Zero Day was the switch from one group of characters to another. Since I picked up The Hatching in 2016, these characters have become part of my life. Boone brought all of them into play in the closing installment in the series, although some had a much more passive role than others.
I kind of divide Zero Day into two parts. A good portion was spent on the political games, this was interesting and all, but to quote Christopher Walken, “I gotta have more spiders, baby!” Once the spiders hit the page, it was on. Boone really knows how to make one of the creepiest creatures on earth even more repugnant.
Zero Day was a great closing to The Hatching Series. I’m curious what creepy-crawly he will terrify me with next.
