Two teenagers struggle with a horrific family legacy, and the woman who has adopted them fights for their lives - and her own.
Adam and Alice are reaching the age when some of the children created by the fertility treatment that spawned them begin to turn feral. Will they succomb to the same physiological horror that destroyed their parents? Every change brings on terror - the voice cracking as it changes, the swelling of the breasts, the coarsening of down into actual hair. Their aunt, Cynthia, oversees renovations to the Twisden family's Manhattan residence - torn apart by the children's parents at their most savage - and struggles to give her niece and nephew the unconditional love they never had. Meanwhile, in the world outside, the forces of good and evil collide.

I adored this book! I read the first one (Breed) over a year ago, as it was recommended by Stephen King. I thought that book was clever and original. Brood picks up pretty much where we left off, save two years and takes the listener on a cool journey of terror. I highly recommend and hope for a third book!
