Brood X: A Firsthand Account of the Great Cicada Invasion Book Blast

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.

  2. LOL I think they may have made this movie on Sy-Fy? :) I find them fun and not at all scary so maybe?

    1. Oh and if it really happened, then hide. Duct tape all around the windows and doors.

    2. I'm counting on you to take charge! Miki and I will be hiding. :P

    3. LOL cowards! ;) Fine I'll go be the hero

    4. what can we say? self preservation can kick in sometimes^^

    5. LOL you know whats funny is I can totally picture this. Cicadas dont bother me. Now spiders... we'd really have a problem!

    6. cicadas don't frighten me per say but hundreds or thousands of them then yes i prefer to be cautious and thus afraid ( now spider no need to be hundreds... one is terrying enough^^)

    7. haha well yes I guess a swarm could be bad. We've had them come through here though. My back yard was covered one year.
