About this ebook

Stay inside. Don’t get bit. Pray for an antidote.

It was supposed to be a vacation. Clear aquifer waters, wildlife sightings, sunshine and roller coasters. But the manatee beneath their paddle boards distracted Cage and Joule, and they didn’t see what happened to their guide. He simply passed out, stopped breathing, and died. Faster and deadlier than Zika, the new strain is delivered through a simple mosquito bite.

How do you avoid mosquitos in Florida? And why does the antidote already exist when no one can even name the disease that’s spreading faster than anyone can keep up with? How do you avoid the bite you can’t see coming?

Once you’re bitten, you have one hour…

The Swarm is the fourth book in the fast-paced Black Carbon apocalyptic thriller series by USA Today bestselling author A.J. Scudiere. The Black Carbon series is a must-read for fans of resourceful heroes and impossible odds.

Over all rating: 5 bites I received an email from A.J. asking if I was bitten. My answer, being from Alabama, was yes. One time at a summer camp, I had so many bites on exposed areas, it was difficult finding places that need scratched. But of late, I have been bitten by her books, not the least of which is The Swarm. Tests For me, there are a few main criteria for rating a book. In no particular order, they are: Well researched. The amount of research that A.J. does to “educate” her readers is more than us mere mortals are normally able to do. My rating in that regard is 5 star. I always learn something from her books. I have long since stopped double-checking what she writes as facts. With over 3000 species of mosquitos in the world, she needed only a few to build this story. Well written. Her text is smooth and easy to read. It is not necessary to reread sections to understand her meaning. She is able to describe the emotions in such a way that the reader feels them along with the character. My rating is 5 star. Unique. There is no one who creates the kind of stories that one finds in The Swarm, as well as the stories in the other series NightShade. 5 star. Am I anxious for the author’s next book? Even though her next book is not in the same series (Nightshade, I think), I am looking forward to reading it. Is there a 6 Star? Thanks A.J. for another great evening of reading.

AJ Scudiere has yet to write a book that lets me get a good night's sleep. I can never put her books down in the middle of it, and The Swarm is no different. From the beginning, I was captivated. I was scared to turn each page for fear of what would happen on it, but I couldn't NOT do it. If you're reading this review, you already know the caliber of AJ's writing - read this book!
