    Locust is a new series that brings closer focus to the headspace one would be in after the world stopped working. A pandemic is at the center of it all, but really, this is a story about the little moments between the bigger ones that keep us alive. Locust is thoughtful, absorbing storytelling in a genre that's familiar, but you can't ignore the effectiveness in its solemn nature. Read Full Review

    Covid-19 has soured many on this sort of fiction, but I lapped it up. I usually enjoy the elements of the story showing the collapse of society, and dislike the scrabbling around in the ruins of the world (take note, The Stand). However, Rosi has provided a compelling 'what comes after' storyline, with the promise of more mysteries to be revealed. Read Full Review

    "Locust" #1 is an enjoyable, though slight, trek through a predictable setting. Read Full Review

    Solemn and brutal post-apocalyptic, a series I can't wait to be able to keep reading... too bad July is still too far away!

    Civilization has ended when a virus quickly spreads from West Africa to the United States, turning most of humanity into giant locusts. As the locusts consume the earth, the uninfected survivors struggle to stay alive. In this newly infected world, we follow Max as he attempts to escape with his mother as the devastating plague quickly consumes New York City.

    We have all being dealing with this pandemic for over a year now and it’s only natural that new apocalyptic stories come out. However, this type of story is popular and has been done many times over. So there needs to be more
