Trapped between Onur and the kings, Çeda knows the asirim are the key. If she can free them from their curse, then they can save Host . . . As the Kings battle to control the city, could she make an ally of one of them?

bradley beaulieu is the acclaimed author of The Winds of Khalakovo trilogy, and has been singled out as a writer to watch, working with Holly Black, Tim Powers and Nancy Kress.

EZEKIEL BOONE Zero Day

The first hatching was defeated, the second wave of spiders ended civilisation, now something else is coming . . .

The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come.

The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realisation that they work as one. Question: kill all the spiders, or gamble on Professor Guyer’s theory that only the Queens need to die?

For President Pilgrim, it’s an easy answer. With two dozen US cities nuked, the country torn asunder – the only answer is to believe Guyer. The Military disagrees, raising a new question: what’s more dangerous, the spiders or us?

Ezekiel boone is the pseudonym for literary author Alexi Zentner. The Hatching series has been sold in twelve countries and nine languages.
