    An inexplicable explosion rocks the antiquities collection of a London museum and the race begins to determine how it happened, why it happened, and what it means. Lady Kara Kensington's family paid a high price in money and blood to found the gallery that now lies in ruins. Her search for answers leads Kara and her friend Safia al-Maaz, the gallery's curator, into a world they never dreamed existed.

    "Could be better"
    Overall

    I would give this 4 stars if not for the terrible narrator. Often when someone is narrating a story the character will sound different than we would imagine them if we were reading the book. However, this was different to the point of being painful at times. The female characters were especially bad. The English accents were not good either. Nice try and fun story. With a better narrator would be much better.

    What did you love best about Swarm?

    It's very suspenseful and dark without attempting to pretty up things. What I mean is there are things happening that could have been sugar coated and drawn out, and Larson simply tosses it out there. It was shocking at times, but worked very well. I like the future tech in it as well.


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent voice talent that brought the characters to life well. I could easily distinguish characters simply by his tone.


    Any additional comments?

    As I understand Larson is a relative newly published author, but have no fear his work is very well written. If you like military sci fi with adventure into the unknowns of space, you will love this.
