Publisher's Summary

Earth arms marines with alien technology and builds its first battle fleet! Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

A novel of military science fiction by best-selling author B. V. Larson, Swarm is the story of Earth's annexation by an alien empire. Long considered a primitive people on a backwater planet, humanity finds itself in the middle of a war - and faced with extinction.

    If your IQ is above 70, don't listen to this book as it will be quite painful.

    Story
    "Not a big science fiction fan but..."

    I'm not a student of literary art. I judge audio books by how often and how long I listen. I was entertained listening frequently. This series isn't composed of stand alone parts. It ends pretty much in the middle of a story. This one being 9 hours could probably been published in a 20 or 30 hour volume and been complete. Obviously intended to generate revenue. Give it a whirl. It's very entertaining.

    Story
    "Fabulous story, can't get enough."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Swarm to be better than the print version?

    Probably the best sci-fi series I've read or listened to in the last 60 years.

    Story
    "I enjoyed this."

    flight of the navigator, war of the world, and day the earth stood still rolled into one. a few plot holes and unanswered questions but maybe they will be resolved in thr sequels.

    "light easy fun read"

    Fun read. the plot is exciting, the setting is enjoyable. it's not the most thought provoking read ever, but like a good action movie it didn't need to be. I encourage anyone who wants a light few hours of entertainment to listen/read it.

    Story
    "A little bit immature... wasn't a bad story"
    Any additional comments?

    Ultimately my journey with this series ends here. The story wasn't awful, and I got the book on sale for $5. It's not good enough for a credit but I would consider getting the second one if it was on sale.

    It reminds me of a story a bunch of drunk teens might write if they were hanging out in their mom's basement.

    A robot arm destroys some guys entire family and 5 minutes later he wants to get down and dirty with some stranger. That's just the kind of stuff that you write up while laughing like Beavis and Butthead.

    Nothing wrong with some mindless action here and there, but it's sort of average. I'll keep looking for something more compelling.

    "GOOD SCI-FI TALE"

    Narrator was great. The whole "kids dying, so I'm gonna screw a coed" was a bit weird but overall a good story.
