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.

Shelves: new-york, chompy
Well, this was a blast of a book.

Creepy, hungry critters that simply will not stop!

Heartbreak, but also humor.

Really fun characters! While I would have liked to get to know one or two a bit better before they got chomped, I still enjoyed them.

Book one of 3!

Vernon 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. The author makes this into a great story as the characters are introduced to the reader and interact with each other and the rats. Don't get too attatched to any of them.

The focus of the book is ver

I received an advance copy of this book for my honest review.
For starters this book was well written and flowed easy. The characters were well defined and the surrounding 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. Th

My skin is still crawling

As a person who is extremely afraid of a tiny little mouse, this book was terrifying! Lee did an excellent job describing these icky rats! I loved the story of Sam and Brad, father and son intertwined throughout. This was one of those unputdownable books! I love horror of all kinds and I loved Vermin 2.0! Highly recommended!

Huge intelligent rats are trying to take over an apartment complex. I was sold on that alone when I was looking for a book to read. What I didn't expect was the great writing style of this author. Great characters, lots of gore, with some humor thrown in makes this book awesome. I will be putting this author on my favorite list.

I’ve always been afraid of rats but the idea of giant rats terrify me. But I didn’t want to put the book down until I was finished reading. This book will have your heart beating erratically in no time.

This is the second book of Gabel's I've read and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one. I really felt the fear of the characters as they dealt with all the "little issues" along the way. I look forward to other novels in the future! ...more

Willard's cousins return

The saga continues. Rats that think and plan war against us. Be scared! Very, very scared. Read before it's too late!

I got this book thinking it would be a fun October read, and it was. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the story, it was a great horror novel. Gory, bit not too gory, scary ( I really hate rats) but with some humour thrown in. This is the first book in a series and I enjoyed it enough to get book 2.
