Synopsis- All Hallows Eve is back again! When a tarantula in a laboratory escapes, all is (somewhat) normal. Add in the fact that a growth liquid is the experiment that is currently undergoing there. Then, you get a big spider. A REALLY big spider. As in, hundreds of feet tall. Hundreds. And Eve is a mere human (well… with superpowers). Will the Halloween Heroine be able to stop this monstrous beast? It’s Harvest Time!

What I Liked- To start off, I have to tell you that I am a Godzilla and Ultraman fan at heart. I am a comic giant-monster geek.

This book brought back great memories of two of my favorite comics. 🙂

If you aren’t familiar with the All Hallows Eve series, the books are novellas. They aren’t comics but the stories and action in them are very much comic bookish. The heroine of the series, Eve, is a great role model for kids. She is also a great superhero too.  It’s cool to see another really good female superhero. The stories Mr. Eveleigh writes are action packed but also kid-friendly. In this book, Mr. Eveleigh really does a great job at creating the Cold War era that the books take place in. I felt like I was really there with Eve! Mr. Eveleigh has really cool little comic illustrations that begin each chapter. They were a marvelous detail for the book! The story-line is fun and realistic (or as realistic as a superhero and giant monsters can get). This is a wonderful addition to the All Hallows Eve series!

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

    This cover is hilarious! lol But the “action figure” in the photo looks like a man. Is that another character in the series, or is it a random pic of a cool-looking Super Hero, Erik?

      The pictures I have in my post in the paragraph are Godzilla (the lizard thing) and UltraMan (at a comic-con, I think) (the silver and red guy). 🙂
      Mr. Eveleigh is a great guy! 😀

    Now I can’t seem to get the thought of a a humongous tarantula out of my head. A hairy beast, indeed! Fun review, Erik. My guess is that you read 226 non picture books last year.
