The Spawning

The Spawning More modern day Lovecraftian fun in Antarctica, with a lot of enjoyable touches And, rather to my surprise, Curran does go through with the threatened apocalypse.

For fans of At The Mountains Of Madness Read Hive first. A mixed bag of a second novel in the Hive series that nevertheless manages to be superior to its predecessor, Hive The Spawning packs numerous nightmarish scenes of visceral horror in with far too many under developed characters that serve only to dilute the focus of what could have been a truly intense tale Instead, the book suffers from a sputtering pace through the first two thirds of its bulk Feeling every bit of its 385 pages as a result, and with a pay off that seems to act largely as a spring board to an as yet unpublished third novel, The Spawning is nevertheless brimming with imagination as it breathes new life into H P Lovecraft s At the Mountains of Madness and will likely appeal to fans of cosmic horror, J W Campbell s Who Goes There and, if I m permitted to mix mediums, John Carpenter s The Thing.3 Parasitic Passengers for The Spawning. What a wonderful book.It seems that the author s writing reminds me very much like Lovecrafts only better.It s hard to explain what I mean by that but the prose is so full and ripe.It s just bursting through over the pages.It s very good and interesting.I wish I was a writer so I could tell you how much I loved this book.It also was very scary.Also I can see a third book in the Hive journey coming.
