This book is so awesome it needs to be made into a movie...I love the writing style. It was kept consistent with a narration where all the characters’ thoughts were able to shine through — the drama, the love, the humor…just magnificent.

Synopsis

Seth is laid off from work. His wife Lara just found out they are expecting a baby this summer. Seth plans on documenting the entire pregnancy with his brand new digital camcorder.

During an evening home watching television, the news reports that a swarm of cicada (Brood Ten) are expected to overwhelm the entire Northeast.

Brood Ten is vicious and ready to invade.

During a sweltering summer night, Brood Ten emerges and wreaks havoc with the electric grid, phone and cell service, wi-fi, food and water supply. Civilization as they know it is gone.

Seth and Lara are thrown back to the stone age in their own home with trillions of cicada trying to deposit their eggs and breed.

Fast paced and filled with tension, Brood Ten is the perfect summer read when you’re sitting outside listening to the cicadas sing.

...fresh perspective, breathing new life into a genre that has been occupied too long by the usual suspects: sickness, the undead and global warming. A story of survival inventive enough to entice fans of the genre.
