Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston return to their Ender's Game prequel series with this first volume of an all-new trilogy about the Second Formic War in The Swarm.
The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces, and the Chinese army. China has been devastated by the Formic's initial efforts to eradicate Earth life forms and prepare the ground for their own settlement. The Scouring of China struck fear into the other nations of the planet; that fear blossomed into drastic action when scientists determined that the single ship that wreaked such damage was merely a scout ship.
There is a mothership out beyond the Solar System's Kuiper Belt, and it's heading into the system, unstoppable by any weapons that Earth can muster.
Earth has been reorganized for defense. There is now a Hegemon, a planetary official responsible for keeping all the formerly warring nations in line. There's a Polemarch, responsible for organizing all the military forces of the planet into the new International Fleet. But there is an enemy within, an enemy as old as human warfare: ambition and politics. Greed and self-interest. Will Bingwen, Mazer Rackam, Victor Delgado and Lem Juke be able to divert those very human enemies in time to create a weapon that can effectively defend humanity in the inexorable Second Formic War?

It was great, I get all the Ender Series books on audio books from Audible now. They are unabridged and the actors are the same for each and the series and really make it worth listening too. I actually listed to this book twice before I marked it finished, I loved it and wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. ( )

NOT another SF book by Card in his Formic universe. Primarily this is some sort of Thriller / Intrigue book by Aaron Johnson in Scott's Formic universe, with Scott doing some amount of it, not sure how much.
Once I realized that, I abandoned it, as I put Thrillers in the same category as taking a great story and making a cartoon out of it. If you need pictures and "KA-BOOM! POW!" you aren't ready for books yet kiddo, go buy a comic. ( )

When I got a chance to grab the prequel to Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game," I was on it.

And, "The Swarm" did not disappoint.

This book suggests the origins of "Ender's Game." It explains the lives of the soldiers at the time and the political situation.

When "The Swarm" ended, I wanted to know what happened next to the people in the story. I cared about them.

I will have to read the next book in the Second Formic Wars Series. ( )

This is pretty good. I didn't really like the jump at the end from being in peril to it's all over. It was almost like they couldn't figure out how to write the solution. Other than that it was a pretty good book. ( )

I received a free copy of the audio CD as a Goodreads giveaway.

I was very excited to win this, as I have read all the other books in the Ender series. This book (CD) is continuing the stories of the Formic Wars and I don't feel like it disappoints. If you have read the first 3 books of the Formic War series (First Formic War), you will be familiar with the style of the writing but I was glad to see at the beginning of the chapters they started adding blurbs from emails or ansible conversations like they had in the original Ender series.

The audio book version is done very well. They have several people who read and it makes it very enjoyable to listen to. I've heard other audio books that were just painful to listen to and I usually didn't finish listening to them, instead just getting the books and reading them. Not the case with this audio book. You can tell they spent time on it and wanted it to be great.

I can't wait to read the final two books of the trilogy! ( )
