It always ends with a cliffhanger :(

repetitively perilous (ad nauseum)

Parental perspective: My 8 year old has been reading books from the Michigan Chillers series at school, and then brought this one home so we could read it at bedtime. It's not great for that purpose, not because it's scary, but because almost every single chapter ends as a cliffhanger!! And who wants to go to sleep on a cliffhanger? I didn't mind how dumb the storyline was until it got so dang repetitively perilous. The kids (2 girls, 1 boy) would spend a couple of minutes getting out of one scrape and assume they were done, only to turn around and face something ELSE (usually worse). This happened for chapter after chapter after chapter. He can keep reading Michigan and American Chiller books at school (he wants to read the Mackinac Island and Saginaw ones to find out how the girls got their strange powers), but I'm done with them!

(oh yeah, and arachno-sapiens? give me a break. that doesn't even follow zoological naming conventions, although perhaps it follows cryptozoological conventions...)


These books have so much intensity and like right when you think the book is finished, something else happens.
