Highly entertaining. A mind-bending, Crichton-esque fate-of-the-planet thriller that whiplashes the reader from micro- to macro-terrors faster than you can say 'ecosystem' I recommend you dive right in.
An effervescent cocktail of adventure. Li races for the ship's midget submarines with two torpedoes containing the modified pheromone.
The Swarm - Schaetzing Frank
The scientists are trying to stop her and at the same time implement their own plan to save humanity. She is stopped at the last moment by Johanson who gives his own life to detonate the torpedoes and kill Li. Karen Weaver, a scientific journalist, then manages to get hold of the last surviving submarine and dives into the depth of the oceans. There she releases a dead human pumped full of the yrr's natural pheromone, hoping to trigger an "emotional" response.
This works and the yrr cease their attacks on humanity. The epilogue reveals that a year later, mankind is still recovering from the conflict with the swarm.
The Swarm: A Novel of the Deep
The knowledge that humans are not the only intelligent lifeform on Earth has plunged most religious groups into chaos, while parts of the world still suffer from the epidemic the yrr sent to destroy the threat to their marine homeland. Humanity now faces the difficult task of rebuilding their society and industry without coming into conflict with the ever-watching superpower under the sea again. The story touches various topics, including the destruction and poisoning of the marine ecosystems on earth, the importance of the sea for humanity and the coexistence of different species. The book also remarks on the human inability to thoroughly understand " alien " life; it speculates on the philosophical and religious consequence that the discovery of another sentient species on Earth may have.
The novel borrows some ideas from the Gaia Theory. It hits on the notion that mankind's activities have created conditions that begin to affect a delicate equilibrium of biotic and abiotic conditions that have fostered and sustained complex life forms and ecosystems.
The Swarm was a number-one-bestseller for eight months in Germany and has been translated into 18 languages.
