BOOK SUMMARY

At the peak of summer season, the people of Bay Isle, New Jersey suddenly and inexplicably become part of a “swarm” and head mindlessly towards the beach. They have become puppets to an unseen phenomenon with one purpose: to reproduce. On the beach, the 12,000 people of Bay Isle take part in a massive copulation event. Meanwhile, a few people on Bay Isle—people who are physically infertile or unable to reproduce—are left to watch the event in stark terror and fear. As the act comes to an end, the people begin to “come awake” from their trance with no memory of what happened.

The government orders the island blocked off. People are prevented from leaving or entering. Tensions grow as it becomes apparent that there are not enough “emergency contraception kits” on the island. The government profiles the island, inventorying all the residents and vacationers. The women are given free “abortion pills” and pregnancy test kits. Brochures on grief, rape trauma and STDs are provided. Meanwhile, weeks pass and thousands of women test “positive” on the government-provided test kits. Many take the provided “abortion pills”, though there are some who choose Pro-Life. As the “Swarm” pregnancies gestate, and with no apparent cause of The Swarm uncovered, superstitions grow…and spread. Attacks on women pregnant from The Swarm spread across Bay Isle, which is now engulfed in chaos. A video leaked to the internet called “Women Pregnant from Swarm” shows a woman in stark confusion, walking into walls and trying to press herself through them.

And secreted away in an attic, one deranged man believes his wife has become pregnant with Jesus Christ in the Second Coming. In the close dark, the woman feels the movement. She sees the pink iridescent lights cycling in her womb. From her breasts leaks colostrum that is horrific: brilliant, glow-in-the-dark, alien.

This single woman holds the secret of The Swarm within her womb…and the fate of Bay Isle.

In a work of staggering originality and terror, young author Rob Heinze pulls no punches and propels the story forward to a vibrant and stark conclusion.
