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.

Battle stations! Listen to another Star Force novel.

    "I finished book 3 of the series and..."

    This book is amazing, and the series is holding up so far! After I listened to Swarm, which I got on sale during one of Audible's $4.99 special offers, I looked into the author and the series - incredibly, he's written 11 of these so far. My first thought was, when does the series start to suck - I'm not a fan of the series concept in general, and 11 just seems like way too much. I'm happy to say, all three books so far have been fantastic, and I can imagine where BV Larson might be going with it. It's EPIC in it's reach. It's setting up a Star Wars-like future with many galaxies, races, and factions with serious political and military considerations. But the first book starts with Earth today, and takes you there, step by step.

    To the people who've called the series flat, or juvenile, I reply, "seriously?"

    Try this first book. I suspect you won't regret it. I hope the next 8 are as good as the first three. I'm devouring them with relish.

    "Stoey, just bad, bad, bad."

    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.

    "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.

    "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.
