    Hello, I'm looking for novel recommendations with Zerg as the main topic (having culture, city, friends, romance, etc). I tend to like romance especially BL. But I welcome BxG novel recommendation too.
    Currently, I only know 4 novels with Zerg main theme:
    And 1 QT novel with side theme in one of the arc about Zerg:
    Preferably no harem please

    Are you talking about the Starcraft Zergs? Because something doesn't add up. Or are you talking about eusocial species in general?

    Hm, as long as I remember, I think the Zergs in the novel is something like eusocial species. They have a royal one (usually it's a queen) to command them. In the novel Home of The Zerg, they have caste in which male Zerg have a higher position than female because the probability of male Zerg hatch is smaller than the female.
    In conclusion, I want a novel with Zerg main topic in which the Zergs have a high consciousness (not like some novels where they describe Zerg as a crab or bugs that only knows how to destroy), clever, can have a family or children and also have feelings and culture

    That's stupid. That's not how eusocial organisms work. The caste system is there only for the division of labor. They cooperate so that the brood will prosper. That's why the queen is at the top. So what if there are only a handful of fertile males left, if the queen dies, it doesn't matter. If thats the case, then their job would, and only will be breeding with the queen. The caste was not there for status but for function. It is so that they can properly allocate the jobs. They are called eusocial for a reason. The highest form of sociality.

    Also the Zergs are not mindless. Even the zerglings have basic thoughts. The problem is that they have a psionic hive mind connection. It enables the Overmind, Cerebrates, Sarah Kerrigan, and her broodmothers to control the hive. In this case, the one on the too of the caste is not the one who can breed, but the one with the most powerful psionic ability. And their purpose is to improve themselves. That's why they intentionally put themselves if a difficult position where only the strong survives. That's their culture.

    Okay.... so do you have any novel recommendation like that?? Because I intend to create this post to gather NUFFIAN who has read novels that is similar to what I'm looking for. This thread isn't supposed to be a discussion thread :blobsweat_2:

    I'm genuinely asking because your post doesn't make sense at all. You're asking for a novel with a caste system like in the one India have in the past but you're talking as if your asking for stories with eusocial social structures.

    For a recommendation, probably Chrysalis. MC is a human turned ant. The hive are eusocial, but the MC is not because he's human. He only sees the hive as a tool. The author tried to sugarcoat it but failed to do so. The hive's culture is about them eusocial while being affected by the MC.

    1)After being reborn as a male insect, he refused to eat soft rice for free
    2)After transmigrating into a villain cannon fodder male zerg
    3)This Male Was Forced To Support His Family
    4) How difficult it is to raise a good zerg
    5) Zergs show love everyday


    Second one is my favourite:love:
    Novelupdates should really have a zerg tag now.
