I can remember some details about the plot but not the title or author name.

  • The story is recent (it was published after 2000)
  • The apocalypse was caused by a mutated species of wasp called slavers

    slaver wasps appear in the webcomic Agatha Heterodyne by Phil and Kaja Foglio. There was also a text ebook born of that (Agatha Heterodyne and the Clockwork Princess). Was the book about a mutation of Ampulex dementor, maybe preying humans instead of cockroaches (i.e., they were called slaver even before mutating) - this looks unlikely: A. dementor seems to have been named in 2014? – LSerni Dec 9 '16 at 8:03
  • Perhaps you could add in those details of the plot that you mentioned to narrow the search? – ASH-Aisyah Dec 9 '16 at 8:43

    Hello Dancreepermaker and welcome to the SF & Fantasy Stack. While we would love to help you find this book, the description as it stands is a bit vague, with the mutated wasps as the only feature. Is there anything else you remember that could narrow it down? Did you read it as an e-book? What did the cover look like? Do you remember more of the plot? Names of characters? Oh, and by the way, have you taken the tour yet? – SQB Dec 9 '16 at 9:17
  • @SQB when i said i could remember some ploy details i meant i can remember the books blurb. I've never actually read the book that I'm looking for, but i will put what i can remember into the question. – Dancreepermaker Dec 9 '16 at 11:05

The book is called Invasive Species by Joseph Wallace. The wasps are actually called thieves - I thought they were called slavers because the sequel is called Slavemaker.

  • Congrats on finding the story you were looking for! Don't forget to come back in a couple of days and accept this answer, so that the question is marked as solved. – Rand al'Thor Dec 9 '16 at 11:55
