Plagued by warnings he fails to recognize, Dr. Abraham Stroud finds himself in the thick of an attack on humankind by a pod of prehistoric, giant centipedes cultivating a taste beyond livestock to a taste for humans.
Just when Stroud, archeologist and vampire slayer, thought he could take an easy, second seat on a West Texas dig ...
The creatures, known to local Native Americans as 'Burrowers', are at the center of a brewing war. Stroud galvanizes the scientists at his institute in developing weapons to combat the Satanipedes (as he calls them), a cross between scorpion and centipede that took down dinosaurs 400 million years before. Now they're back, and what chance do humans stand against them?
