after reading all these creepy threads, they reminded me of this book i read. i've tried google to help me find it but it didn't work. maybe someone here read it.

it's about a brother and a sister who move to a new house and find underground tunnels in the woods in their back yard. there are these creatures living in the tunnels. the queen dies and the next one to take its place is blind and can't take control unless she can see. so the brother lets the "medic" creature take out his eye and surgically implant it in the creature.

thats the short version. here's the long version as i remember it.

the family moves to this new house. while the parents are moving shit the brother and sister go play in the woods. they find a stump and it opens. they climb inside and almost get killed by punji spikes. they walk through these tunnels and find this blind creature. they get introduced to the rest of the clan.

there is a big controversy because a construction worker gets brutally murdered and no one knows if it was this creature clan or some enemy creatures. the queen dies and the next one to take its place is blind and can't take control unless she can see. so the brother lets the "medic" creature take out his eye and surgically implant it in the creature. afterwards the kid tells his mom that he was attacked by a hawk or some shit.

this has really been bugging me for the past couple years because when i read it, it was fucking badass. any help is appreciated. maybe somebody's google fu is better than mine.

thanks.

Kind of sounds a little like Pan's Labyrinth.
