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.
I'm not a huge fan of this cover and that is always the first thing I look at. With that being said, this was a very entertaining and well written Apocalyptic / Horror.
Definitely full of suspense, not crazy scary, but brings forth some jumpy moments.
This is a Horror novel that really lives up to its genre. At times I felt like I was living the story and that is a huge testament to Micahel Phillip Cash's writing ability.
