Brood X by Michael Phillip Cash is a novel about a couple (Seth and Lara) expecting a baby and the video documenting of the pregnancy evolves into also documenting a deadly cicada invasion. This is a great fast paced read and there is interesting characters and reactions to the invasion from the main characters taking the news warnings lightly to friends on financial hard times being moochers to serious doomsday survivalist neighbors.
Overall Brood X is an entertaining read, although it does not seem to really live up to its horror classification. There are some scary aspects with the cicadas causing damage to infrastructure and even killing people, but at the same time there is enough other stuff that goes on that makes it not all that makes the fear aspect kind of fade into the background.
