An entire solar system with billions of people has been destroyed. It happened overnight, without warning, leaving behind only charred planetary fragments still orbiting their star like dark messengers of Armageddon. As captain of the Star Cruiser Charleston, you are sent to investigate but encounter only ashen landscapes and a frantic call for help from yet another system under attack. You now understand the disaster was not a natural phenomenon, but you know nothing about the real cause. As you answer the request from the newly besieged planets, however, you discover that you are facing unimaginably advanced technologies, your weapons are useless, and the fate of all mankind will depend upon your ability to control strange powers you have yet to uncover.

About the Author
Long ago, when televisions in the home were still a rarity in the plains of Midwest America, young Victor Thomas set up rows of chairs every Saturday morning so that he could see old science fiction serials together with his childhood friends. Today he lives in the forested Northwest, but one thing has not changed. He still enjoys inviting people over to share imaginative stories about the many possible worlds of tomorrow.

From the opening pages Victor Thomas pulls you into this amazing story and never lets you go. Unlike many Sci-Fi novels, he builds a very plausible future world, one you can understand easily but yet be in awe of the technology. His characters are well developed and believable and fit in perfectly with the setting. The plot development moves quickly and the obstacles the characters encounter really make you wonder if and how will they ever escape or survive. Thomas’ has a natural story telling ability that easily takes his imaginative ideas and translates them into a convincing story line. Opus Swarm is a very compelling story, one you won’t want to put down till you get to the very last page. I will read it again (already started) to fully appreciate the craft of Thomas’ writing and catch the nuances I may have missed with the first read. If you liked “Wool”, you will love Opus Swarm. I highly recommend this book to everyone, not just Sci-Fi aficionados. I can’t wait for a sequel.
