Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thought-provoking ... An intriguing, pacy read, and Mr Evans shows great potential."- The Economist on Invisible Armies

From the Author

Swarm is a sort-of-sequel - more of a companion piece, really - to my novel Invisible Armies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Read August 8, 2012
By M Slott
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I received this book for free and read through the entire thing in a couple of nights. Overall I liked the book. Well written and engrossing it kept me reading (which many of the free books here do not.) I did think that it got a little over the top with the heros exploits and near misses against people who should have been able to smack him down...yet, somehow he survives it all. Really an interesting premise though. I give it 4 stars and recommend that if you like cutting edge technology stories this one might hold your interest. It held mine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three stars for the book, five for the author March 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I came across this book because of an article titled "Steal This Book", by Swarm author, Jon Evans. ([...])
It was a great article, and can be summed up by Evans' statement; "I expect that in the future e-books will come with a "Pay What You Want" interface on the very last page"

I dig it.

So, how was the book? I enjoyed it. There were parts that felt a bit contrived, but overall, it was a worthwhile read. Was it worth ten dollars? No, but it is worth the three bucks that I am back here paying AFTER downloading it for free and reading it.

I will have to try out "Invisible Armies" and see how I like that one.

Keep up the fight Evans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Globetrotting high tech thriller June 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read all Jon's books now and have never been disappointed. Some of his characters thread their way through several of his books including this one and it is always interesting to catch up with them. A great fast paced story with plenty of action, heaps of techie stuff but written in an interesting and easy to understand way. With the use of military drones very much in the news this book paints a frightening but very believable scenario where drones are in the hands of criminals. Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The trouble with drones November 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just after I started this book, I saw something on tv about the future with drones. This book is certainly a page turner and makes you wonder who you can trust. It also makes you think twice about how well you think you might know someone. I would recommend this to everyone. Drones may seem like a harmless and fun toy now but this story proves otherwise. At the very least it'll make you think about what happens if they get into the wrong hands. I'm giving it five stars but would really give it four because of excessive strong language. That was the only thing I didn't care for.

4.0 out of 5 stars A departure for Jon Evans but a good read. September 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I related to Jon Evans other books and looked forward to this his latest. It does not follow the same characters as his previous works, but once into the story it felt very familiar. The story is relatively fast paced and an easy read. The details of the story line were a bit of a stretch, but the Jon obviously has let his imagination loose a little more on this novel. There were a couple spelling errors that editing missed in the kindle edition. All in all a good read and looking forward to Jon's next work.

Artificial intelligence and the ability to coordinate multiple drone attacks without specific directions threaten to bring chaos world-wide with no chance to identify the perpetrators. Great characters, edge of science challenges, multiple enemies and hard choices bring together an unlikely group of great characters in a plot that turns and twists and turns again. Fascinating concept and well worth the time.

More About the Author

I always wanted to be a writer. I travel a lot - more than 70 countries across six continents, to date. My novel DARK PLACES won Canada's Arthur Ellis Award, and has been translated into Dutch, German, and Japanese; my recent Vertigo Crime graphic novel THE EXECUTOR was nominated for a Spinetingler Award, appeared on several best-of-the-year-lists, and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese. My most recent book, and I think my favorite, is my "children's book for grown-ups" BEASTS OF NEW YORK. I'm not so secretly planning to write a sequel or two. I write novels, scripts, magazine journalism, a weekly column for the irreverent tech site TechCrunch, and software. It is fair to say that I am easily bored.

For far, far more about me than you probably ever wanted to know, see my web site rezendi.com.
