About Nick Webb
Nick became a scientist so that he could build starships. Unfortunately, his ship is taking longer to build than he'd hoped, so fictional starships will have to do for now. When he's not adding to his starship collection, you can find him tweeting and facebooking about Nasa, science, space, SciFi, and quoting Star Trek II.
He lives in western Washington.

Controlled by the Quiassi who calls himself Abraham Haws--Captain Granger's old friend and XO--the Findiri unleash a storm of destruction as they hunt down Granger, their creator, and seek to end the resistance to their rule.
But a single surviving Swarm ship has returned from their universe, threatening all sentient life in the galaxy and making the defeat of the Findiri all the more urgent, for if the surviving Swarm gets their way, the very existence of the universe is at stake.
All races and worlds gather--human, Dolmasi, Skiohra, Valarisi, Eru, and Itharan, to confront the Findiri, and make one last stand against their mortal enemy: the Swarm, which seeks the end of all life, across all universes and existence.
The Findiri, a savage, deadly race created to fight the Swarm, are on the hunt. But they no longer hunt the Swarm.
They hunt humans. And not just any human—they seek their creator, Captain Timothy Granger, and mean to destroy him.
But we are not alone. More alien races, hiding from the Swarm for millennia, also search for Earth, seeking the legend from their own stories to protect them: a being called Granger.
With Earth in the crosshairs, Granger, Admiral Proctor, and the crew of the Independence race against time to solve the mystery of the Findiri before all human and alien worlds fall.
But time is running out for all life in the galaxy, and the clock is ticking.
But they won’t stop: they’re inhuman. They have no inhibitions. No conscience.
And no mercy.
But from the crucible of battle has risen an unlikely hero. Captain Timothy Granger, at the helm of another time-tested battleship, will take the fight to the enemy. He’ll discover their secrets. Find their homeworld. Destroy it before they destroy ours.
He will save us all. He must.
Or we’ll die.
We were wrong.
Thirty years after the Second Swarm War devastated Earth and its colonies, a powerful, mysterious alien ship has invaded our space. Entire planets are ravaged, whole moons shattered. Any starship sent against it never comes home.
But Admiral Proctor, a war hero from our last brush with annihilation, is called out of retirement to take the reins of humanity's newest starship. The ISS Independence and her crew, with Admiral Proctor at the helm, will stand as Earth's last defense. Somehow, against all odds, they will save us, even when our enemy is not just an unstoppable alien ship, but a ghost from humanity's past bent on its utter destruction.
And if they fail, we fall.
The Swarm runs rampant across our space. We mourn the loss of thousands of ships and millions of fallen comrades. Billions of fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers--all gone, all dead. It is time we end this, for our moment has come.
But victory never comes without sacrifice. Heroes are not taught nor trained, but forged in blood and ashes. Our grandchildrens' history books will tell our story, and glorify the heroes and legends.
The Swarm will be conquered; we will prevail.
At any price.
It rages across United Earth space, claiming millions of lives. The Swarm have returned, larger, more fierce, and more technologically advanced than ever before.
The voice from Saturn's moon Titan claiming to be Tim Granger is warning humanity that this time, the Swarm may be unstoppable.
Admiral Shelby Proctor, on the run for the suspected murder of the United Earth President, knows that humanity's only hope may be a hero that's been dead for thirty years, and travels to the center of Titan to find him in Earth's darkest hour.
The fleets are assembled, all the races united against the overwhelming enemy from another universe. And now all they need a legendary hero to lead them to victory.
The Golgothic ship has burrowed deep into the core of Saturn’s moon Titan, whose mass slowly but inexorably increases. The Dolmasi, once allies of United Earth in the Second Swarm War, now attack us, unhinged and without reason. And all the while, Admiral Shelby Proctor works to answer the most urgent questions of all: what was a piece of the old ISS Victory doing inside the Golgothic ship? And was it Captain Tim Granger’s voice that whispered from the doomed ship, “Shelby, they’re coming?”
And … are they the Swarm? If they are, God help us all.
75 years ago, an alien fleet attacked Earth.
Without warning. Without mercy.
We were not prepared.
Hundreds of millions perished. Dozens of cities burned.
We nearly lost everything.
Then, the aliens abruptly left.
We rebuilt. We armed ourselves. We swore: never again.
But the aliens never came back.
With overwhelming force the aliens have returned, striking deep into our territory, sending Earth into a panic. Our new technology is useless. Our new ships burn like straw. All our careful preparations are wasted.
Now, only one man, one crew, and the oldest starship in the fleet stand between the Earth and certain destruction:
The Telestines, in control of Earth, now pursue us from planet to planet, moon to moon, leaving terrible destruction in their wake. And now, the unthinkable: a new alien weapon with the power to destroy a whole world. Thousands die on Jupiter's moon Io when a bomb detonates, sending apocalyptic storms of debris that threaten millions of people on Ganymede and Callisto.
But that isn't the worst of it. The bomb was detonated by a human. A drone.
And there are thousands of them scattered across the solar system, anonymous, undetectable, and waiting for orders from their Telestine masters.
Our war becomes a race against time: find the bombs, find the drones, find our true enemy, all while under siege from within and without.
Before we all perish.
His ship is dead.
His career is dead.
But Spectre is very much alive. And with his plans of galactic domination laid bare, Captain James Mattis must gather what allies he can to stop him.
Admiral Pippa Spears and the HMS Caernarvon make a mysterious discovery in the wreckage of the USS Stennis, one that could change the outcome of the war. And in the uproar after the assassination of the American President she and Captain Mattis race across the galaxy after the suspected shooter, knowing full well the murder is another of Spectre's schemes to throw them off guard while he carries out his sinister plans.
Plans that Mattis and Spears are close to unraveling.
The cost of failure is unthinkable: a destroyed Earth and an unstoppable immortal foe.
For six months after the failed alien attack American Admiral Jack Mattis has been ordered to patrol the periphery to stop more alien incursions.
Even though he knows the attackers weren't alien, but grotesque mutated super-humans from the future. A truth world governments publicly deny.
And now an American scientist witnesses an experimental super-weapon gone awry at a top-secret genetic lab in deep space, while a rebel veterans group storms a Chinese embassy on an American world. Tensions flare, and the American-Chinese peace begins to fray.
Admiral Mattis races to put out the fires, while trying to piece together the mystery of the future human invasion, knowing that failure means not only certain death for him, but for the entire human race.
The clock is ticking.
A rogue element within the military has stolen half the Exile Fleet and taken it to Neptune to protect the rich and powerful, drawing critical resources away from Admiral Walker on the front lines.
The leader of the alien Telestines has recovered ancient devastating technologies to finally exterminate the human race.
And a fanatical Telestine death cult is out for blood--both Human and their own. For them, all must die for all to ascend.
Against them all stands Admiral Walker and the surviving officers of the Exile Fleet. The fragile colonies of the solar system desperately need their protection, and humanity yearns for its lost home on Earth. But Walker's plan for total victory is so horrific that even her closest friends work against her.
The end is in sight. The sun is on the horizon. And only the girl known as The Dawning can answer the question: is it rising or setting on humanity?
Neptune's War is the third and final book of the Earth Dawning series.
