The Swarm

by Orson Scott Card, Aaron Johnston
Release date: August 1, 2016
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

New York Times bestselling authors Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston return with an all-new prequel to Ender's Game, The Second Formic War

The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces. China has been devastated by the Formic's efforts to eradicate Earth's 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.

Card's Ender's Game is one of the bestselling and most beloved science fiction novels of all time. It is set on an Earth where society and governments have been radically altered in the face of alien invasion. Readers will discover the past of Ender's world, feel the desperation of Earth that drove humans to make the changes they did, and meet the heroes who fought off the tide of invasion until Ender could decisively end the wars.
