Once again, Shaun Hutson demonstrates his ability to make the slimy little gastropods known as slugs scary, and does it even better in this sequel to his first bestselling novel. Well naturally, the slugs are back, and have moved from the small England town in the first book to the sewers of London in this novel. The sewers are the breeding ground of the title. Well, the only new feature to this novel is that the slime trails made by the slugs turn people into savage, demented killers and maniacs if they are touched. Apart from that, nothing different from the novel. There is a main character named Alan Finch who is apparently a doctor, but like the health inspector in SLUGS, doesn't need to be a part of the plot since he does nothing but try to save people, to no effect. And obviously, there is lots of gore and good descriptions of people being eaten in this book, and several graphic sex scenes. AND....the slug's lengths are exaggerated like in the first book. My favorite scene: The guy who goes to the strip club for about $20 worth of entertainment and dies a very stupid death. You'll see what I'm talking about when you buy the book!
