X-Men meets Heroes when New York Times bestselling author Scott Westerfeld teams up with award-winning authors Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti in the second book of an explosive new trilogy about a group of teens with amazing abilities.

They thought they'd already faced their toughest fight. But there's no relaxing for the reunited Zeroes.

These six teens with unique abilities have taken on bank robbers, drug dealers and mobsters. Now they're trying to lay low so they can get their new illegal nightclub off the ground.

But the quiet doesn't last long when two strangers come to town, bringing with them a whole different kind of crowd-based chaos. And hot on their tails is a crowd-power even more dangerous and sinister.

Up against these new enemies, every Zero is under threat. Mob is crippled by the killing-crowd buzz--is she really evil at her core? Flicker is forced to watch the worst things a crowd can do. Crash's conscience--and her heart--get a workout. Anon and Scam must both put family loyalties on the line for the sake of survival. And Bellwether's glorious-leader mojo deserts him.

Who's left to lead the Zeroes into battle against a new, murderous army?

GREAT sequel to a wonderful first book. We got even more into the nitty-gritty and dark side of things, and I loved every twist. Can't WAIT for the conclusion!!

Definitely didn't like this book as much as the first. It was a slow build, and some parts were seriously morbid. The last quarter was good, with a cliff hanger ending.

Ya I couldn't finish this book. After the first book, I was really excited to see how much farther the author could push the concept, but I was really disappointed. All this book delivered was whiny teenagers with meaningless abilities that could only create parties. I found it unoriginal, boring and one dimensional.

They thought they’d already faced their biggest fight, but they were wrong. Following six teens with different superpowers. They think everything is going good; their nightclub is finally coming together and its been awhile since they have been in a fight. But when two strangers come to town everything that was going good now isn't.
This is the second book in Scott Westerfeld’s series “Zeroes” and I loved it just as much as the first! There's something really unique about this series that really makes you want to read every last word. You get to experience everything from all six characters because each chapter is told by a different Zero. The ending in this one really shocked me and I cant wait to read the last book. Rating 4 out of 5 stars.

I love superheroes with weird powers, I love teen drama, I love exciting plots, and I love creepy bad guys, and Swarm has this all in spades. A terrific sequel to Zeroes. But the way this one ended, I need the next book in the series RIGHT NOW.
