Meet Denny. He's an awkward teenage boy with a penchant for anything odd. He has parents who love him, an older step-sister who has been going through an argumentative phase pretty much since the day she was born and a younger sister with a permanent smile etched on her chubby little face.
Sure, Denny has his quirks. They all do. But they're normal. A normal, run-of-the-mill family living average lives.
That is until hell breaks loose in their suburban home. The invasion of an army of eight-legged critters heralds the arrival of an enemy they can't see, but must fight. An enemy that's always a step ahead of them and determined to spill as much blood as possible. An enemy who seems to be in complete control. Do Denny and his family have what it takes to survive?
One thing's for sure, family life will never be the same again.

I love to be scared. This book wasn't scary per se, but it was, from beginning to end, a sickening ride of wonder and grossness! I don't remember how I came across the title- maybe Goodreads, but when I received the book mail, I knew right away that I could not have a giant spider on my page! LOL They're totally gross to look at. BUT, I then decided to still have it, just with it's hideous face covered up. For any entomologists out there, I apologize for hurting your feelings... So what is this story about? The Other's Voice, by Lou Yardley, is about a family in trouble. There's a presence in their home, in a small town in England, and it's taking over, starting from the smallest critter to the humans that reside there. I would say it begins with Denny, the son of the 5-person family, but it doesn't. It starts with a poisonous spider and its web, inside the Chamberses household. (I looked it up, the 'es' is correct!) The story offers up the perspectives of many: Kimberly (mom), Grayson (dad), Denny (second oldest), Mia (oldest) and Lily (the toddler). And then from each of the spiders, who dwell within the home. Thousands of them! And then there's The Voice. The disembodied shadow, lurking in everyone's mind. Able to manipulate and destroy at will. There's something The Other wants and is willing to use everyone and thing in order to get it. But it will begin with Denny. The story is a wild ride and it was totally different from prev reads. And never mind it's in the land I'll be visiting later this year! I can't wait to see what someone else thinks of this horrific, novel! You can find The Other's Voice anywhere book are sold. Check it out- I'm off to the next read!
