The swarm.
A unitary force of countless entities.
Nightmarish creatures from the darkest depths.
All working towards a greater purpose.
Simply fulfilling their role in a complex system.
Abducted from the world I know I am now forced to become a part of this.
Forced to help these horrors to increase their power.
However, they are not mindless killers.
There might be a way for me.
I could influence them from the inside.
To prevent that anyone has to die.
To protect the ones I love.
Maybe I can adjust.

If not for the eggs.

      This novel is immensely difficult to read but not for the body horror, race transformation, and wasp/ant-like biology. Formicea is difficult to read because of the main character's borderline obsession with being human, doing human things, and ascribing human traits to non-human beings. Never has a novel given me such emotional pain because of the actions, choices, and words of a character. Honestly, this is probably only a problem for me, and to another person would seem like a good thing however for me her obsession with humanity is migraine-inducing and disappointing. The grammar is fine if you don't have a stick up your ass and if you can handle a documentary on ants you will be able to handle this story.

      Pretty good

      Im interested to see the interactions between an insectoid race and humans. Their cultures are so different, so it'll be interesting to see how they mix.

      The grammar isn't very good, but I don't care

      The MC cares quite a bit about being human, which is slightly annoying, (I want to surpass the limitations of the basic human form) but I guess a lot of people would act the same way as her.

      This is weird, in a nice way. I like the horror and dysphoria she feels as her body starts to change against her will, and her contant anxiety is easy to relate to from my point of view

      I feel like the 'Indecisive Protagonist' tag needs to be repeated three times over, seriously, brace yourself.

      The world, good writing, and learning about the bug society and how humans might react to them is compelling. I find myself rooting for the humans or insects back and forth with compelling characters and views on both sides, sans the MC. Learn to laugh at the misery of the MC and enjoy a compelling world and story.

      Honestly its the best Monster girl story I've read so far. I enjoy pretty much all of the characters and find that there motivation almost always make logical (or emotional) sense. It also helps that I find the premise uniquely interesting.

      Grammar can be a problem sometimes but the author is very receptive to feedback and generally seems pretty nice.

      First: This is definitely light horror. There aren't any jump scares or murders, just.... disturbing biology that the main character, Erys, can't really get over, which is understandable once you read far enough to understand why she can't escape it.

      Second: Do not read read if you are afraid of giant insects.

      Overall, this is a decent story. It will never be one of the best, but it manages to keep the audience's attention and not stagnate.

      I love the insectoid aesthetic, and hivemind that's been hinted at so far!
