Caboodle Firsts: Get one of 100 copies of Swarm Rising for young booklovers

Swarm Rising

We're giving 100 children the chance to read astronaut Tim Peake and writer Steve Cole's exciting action-adventure, Swarm Rising, before it hits the shelves in September. 

From astronaut Tim Peake and bestselling author Steve Cole: exciting action-adventure rooted in cutting-edge space-age science and technology.

When Danny is kidnapped by Adi – who can run through brick walls and make cars drive on water – he realises that all humans are in danger. Adi is part of a super-advanced hive mind, the Swarm, which intends to protect the Earth from the environmental catastrophe caused by the human race.

Adi – Alien Digital Intelligence in the form of a girl – can bend the laws of physics and control digital data, but as a digital being she wants to know what it's like to be human. Which is where Danny comes in.

But what exactly is the 'help' the secretive Swarm is offering? Can Danny and his friend Jamila help Adi stop the Swarm Agents and give humanity a second chance?

Swarm Rising can be enjoyed by readers aged 8+ and is perfect for fans of Artemis Fowl and Doctor Who.

Grown ups can be in with a chance of being sent one of 100 copies by completing the entry form below.
