synopsis: creepy whispers and other frightening things occur during the dismantling of a space station that lies under the shadow of a dread dark star. Adam Christopher is a proficient author who gives the impression that he had a great time writing this.
As large as planets themselves, the "Mother" spiders grab on and sink their claws/fangs in until whatever planetary body it's holding onto falls apart all while spawning egg sacks of smaller spiders that grow as they consume resources. We learn all that from the main protagonist at the beginning when he relates the story of the military action where he earned his medal.
The real story takes place on the Coast City - a space station in the process of being decommissioned.
it's impossible for me to be scared when it is mainly a bunch of nameless, personality-less marines being killed off. also, if you are going to give a character the profession of "psy-marine" then please explain what that means and give her an opportunity to demonstrate her powers before the final act! although the villain is overly telegraphed in the first half of the book (including way too many mentions of "burning blue eyes"), I thought it was WATCH OUT! weirdly wonderful that she hailed from the Japanese tradition of menacing spirit-women. I certainly did not except Ring/The Grudge/Tomie in space!
finally, the whole bullying of a Captain by a couple of mean marines was pretty eye-rolling. that was pretty cool.5 Stars Burning Dark by Adam Christopher is a fantastic piece of science fiction horror.
Back in the day, Captain Abraham Idaho Cleveland had led the Fleet into battle against an implacable machine intelligence capable of devouring entire worlds.
