The main characters are well-written but with such a big caste for book 6 it did not pull me through. There was a few good moments of emotional payoff, but the scope.of the tragedies that occur are lost and fell flat to a point with hopping through the povs.
I do feel as if books 1 through 3 were much more solid and told a more complete Story in plot setting and characters. There was a lot of haphazard plot lines in books 3 through 6. Most annoying was the fact that in the 2nd Trilogy major plot lines in each book were heavily investiled in only to come out to be pointless and mute all for a twist that didn't work in any of the books it occurred in.
Overall the seires is appropriate for young adults and above. Again a decent one time read or rainy day seires.
And to make matters even worse is the Author has told me that there are spin offs that he and others have written, so it looks like I should be able to get a fix or two while awaiting Book 7.
I am really not complaining as I actually love long series like this and hope it runs on to 20 or 30 books and I will read them all... Get to work Mr. Nick Webb my addiction needs feeding....
Perfect? What is, outside of God? Webb is a story teller, and a damned fine one. Those that throw stones, should match him first, then speak from a position of parity...
Five out of Five Stars, and they're earned...
But he has returned because the Swarm have returned, not that they ever left.
Book #6 is really fascinating, in that we get not only the continuation of the main story of Shelby and the Crew trying to stop the Swarm, but there is this wonderful intrigue and political intrigue surrounding multiple other characters in the story, including the President and Vice President and factions of the Grangerites as well as the Leader of the GPC and the Military Leaders of the IDF. Just as intriguing are the various alien races, the Skiohra, Dolmasi, Valarisi, and even the other yet to be encountered races, the Findiri and Quiassi.
Webb has created this masterful story of intrigue and mystery, with multiple different storylines all interwoven into this compelling and thrilling adventure.
In this 6th book, everything has come to a head at Britannia, with the Swarm making an attack on the human world that is second in population only to Earth, with over 8 billion people. Ballsy and the Independence race to aid the fight, but Shelby is trying to find out what is happening on Titan, if Granger is really there or not.
Shelby gets some answers, but not all of them, before they have to make a desperate fight to save a planet, and this opening sequence of the book is outstanding, one of the best of the entire series, with an intense and brutal fight that sees the new “Granger Moons” facing off against the Swarms new terrifying Carrier ships.
Webb is a Master in creating these epic battle scenes that are reminiscent of the old Sci-Fi Movies like Return of the Jedi, in which there is this chaotic and desperate fight to the death to save something, in this case, Britannia, but the descriptive work of the starships, and starfighters blazing away at each other is truly remarkable.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but the rest of the story is just as incredible as the start, if not more so.
The other stunning part of this book is the Character work. Nick Webb has always been known as an outstanding character driven story Author, but as this series as progressed, he has only improved with each book, showing some extraordinary writing skills. The Character of Shelby Proctor is not only believable as the cantankerous old Admiral, a living legend, and to many, a religious icon, to others, just a figurehead, the person who once stood with the Man who defeated the greatest threat Humanity has ever faced. Although Tim Granger has been given the credit for defeating the Swarm all those years ago, it was Shelby Proctor who was there with him all the way, and there are many who understand that Granger would never have done what he did without her, that his victory was as much hers as it was his. And the fact she is the one still standing, dealing with the remaining Swarm threat, and the ongoing alien threat, makes her the true hero. As this story progresses and different enemies try to take out the Admiral, or commit other acts, it is fascinating watching the various crew all rising to stand with their Admiral, never wavering.
Webb has created this amazing character, and this mythology around her, and as you read the story, you actually find yourself as the reader, getting caught up in it, and this just shows how incredible Nick Webb is as a Character Author.
It is not just Proctor though, there is the ever lovable Ballsy, the quirky Rayna Scott, the Younger Ballsy – Zivic, and the crew of the independence, Qwerty, Whitehorse, Mumford. Then there are the additional characters from the Military and the different alien factions (( am not going to list characters so I don’t give anything away).
Each of these characters though has so much depth, Webb has given each of them so much detail, when you go from the Skiohra Matron Mothers, with their inner children, and the history there, and the background, which you could almost write another book on, and then to members of the Independence bridge crew (Qwerty’s back story is just hilarious), there is so much world building in each and everyone of the characters, and this just adds so much more to the story.
This has been an epic series, and in this final book, everything comes to a head, and Webb does a fantastic job of wrapping up ‘most’ of the storylines that have been opened up from the start of this new series, or remained open from the first series. I say most, as he has left some open as there is another series already, and it was obvious that there was another series coming when he wrote this (No complaints here!!)
I will give him major credit though for (No Spoilers) how he wrapped up this series, it was really well done.
One thing I will say about these books to, Webb is not afraid to kill off his main characters. There have been so many different characters that you have turned the page, and BAM they’re dead – and you actually have to go back and just re-read the page again, to make sure you read it right. But it is great to have an Author not afraid to kill off their main characters.
Overall, this has been an exceptional addition to what is still one of my favourite Sci-Fi Series of all time, from one of my favourite Sci-Fi Authors. This is an absolute must read (or listen), you won’t be disappointed!!
