In an overpopulated world seeking living room in the jungles, the International Ecological Organization was systematically exterminating the voracious insects that made these areas uninhabitable. Using deadly foamal bombs and newly developed vibration weapons, men like Joao Martinho and his coworkers fought to clear the green hell of the Mato Grosso.

But somehow those areas that had been completely cleared were becoming reinfested, despite the impenetrable vibration barriers. And tales were coming out of the jungles—tales of insects mutated to incredible sizes, of creatures who seemed to be men but whose eyes gleamed with the chitinous sheen of insects.

  • “Herbert does more than carry events forward: he deals with the consequences of events, the implications of decisions.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Will | 8/9/2010

    " It is Herbert, but stripped down to the point of uselessness. Only read this if you're a completist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emma | 8/3/2010

    " Interesting book! It wasn't that amazing or unusual, but short and fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dylan | 6/15/2010

    " Entertaining scifi about a conflict between an insect hive brain and a civilization trying to eradicate all insects in Brazil. Pretty decent character development. Three stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 6/8/2010

    " If humans wanted to eradicate inverts, this is probably what would happen... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samuel | 10/2/2009

    " Another great story from Herbert. Riveting the whole way through...and the ending blew me away, I remember. Gonna relive this one again soon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathaniel | 7/15/2009

    " Frank Herbert has written better. This is only good if you're looking for something shorter, more manageable, and less engrossing than his better books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raven | 6/21/2008

    " It amazes me that the author of the Dune series could have written this. The concept of the book is good, but it is poorly developed, seemingly rushed. Given that Herbert is known for his full engulfing worlds I know he can do better than this! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karl | 1/11/2008

    " harmless drivel.

    Misplaced eco-rabble.

    Still ahead of his time as an environmentalist, this one just doesn't work though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 12/30/2007

    " Another interesting take on the human-ecology symbiosis, a very common theme in many, if not all, of Herbert's works. It was a quick read, only 200 pages, but worth it if you are a Herbert fan. It gives some more insight to his philosophies. Probably not recommended for a one-off read, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anastasia | 11/24/2007

    " Frank Herbert is an excellent writer; i learned the fusion of small bugs into not simply big bugs but anything and everything, will help not just the radiated and pesticide-ridden "future" South America, but also save a dude's life who was shot in the chest. "
