Vermin 2.0: Hunger Pains
By Lee Gabel
Sam's fear of rats takes him to the verge of terror. When super-sized vermin turn up in his apartment, his phobia pushes him over the edge.
But it isn't just a few rats. A hybrid colony - genetically superior, strong, and super intelligent - has moved into the basement... and living flesh is on the menu.
Pets and tenants disappear, leaving behind a wake of carnage Sam is powerless to stop. Now, with his estranged son Bradley dumped on his doorstep, Sam must switch into protection mode.
Faced with impossible odds, Sam hires Bertha O'Connor from Detest-A-Pest Exterminators Inc., the only outfit brave enough - or crazy enough - to take the job. But O'Connor and her crew needs backup and drags Sam and Bradley along for the battle. Sam must face his fears and defend his own flesh and blood, or end up eaten alive...

Praise for Vermin 2.0:
"If you're looking for something a little apocalyptic for your next read, but without fantasy monsters, check out Vermin 2.0. From the first chapter on, you'll quickly agree that rats deliver more horror than zombies and killer clowns ever could. Rats are the ancient enemies of mankind, no matter how cute the white ones look in pet stores. Lee Gabel has given us a new star in the rodent-related horror universe! Is there going to be a sequel?"
"Let me start by saying, as a child, I loved Willard, Food of the Gods, Rats, Night of Terror and the really cheesy Graveyard Shift, so I may be somewhat biased when I say I love this freaking book. Lee Gabel has taken some of the most cherished horror films from my childhood and written a novel in the same vein. Hero, who's afraid of rats, check.....Rats that have some real teeth, um, bite, check. Do yourself a favor. If you liked any of those movies, or just plain like good old fashioned nature run amok stories BUY THIS BOOK. You will love it."
"For starters this book was well written and flowed easy. The characters were well defined and the surroundings were well described. Now with those details out of the way, this book kept me on pins and needles. There were times my skin crawled and creeped me out but I could not put the book down. This book is one of the best books that I have read in a long time that actually kept my attention and freaked me out all at the same time. This is a 5 star book."
"Was expecting a rip off from James Herbert's the rats trilogy but got a unexpected delightful little book. Estranged father and son spend the summer holidays together and things don't go well at first. But thankfully an invasion of rats naturally brings them together along with a rat expert and 2 eccentric exterminators. Can they stop the rats? Read and see. Nice gore and rat attacks."
"Vermin 2.0 is a gruesome horror. What would happen if rats were able to think and plan? That is what appears to happen in this old apartment building where the main character, Sam Shaw, is the superintendent. The characters are well developed. They are all colorful and entertaining in their own way but don't get too attached to any of them. The focus of the book is very bad rats. This is also Sam Shaw's worst nightmare. This is his story. A real page turner."
