Publisher's Summary

United Earth burns.
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 grandchildren's history books will tell our story and glorify the heroes and legends.
The Swarm will be conquered; we will prevail. At any price.

Much More Than Just another Military SciFi Opera

This is an excellent series. The science while arguable is very well and consistently presented. Very good characters and an excellent ending to the series that places it well into true SciFi instead of just a military series that happens to be in space.

Well Done Nick Webb!!!

I look forward to what you give us next.

Another Winner for Nick Webb

This author has become one of my favorites! He tackles some heady concepts such as the nature of a singularity, the usefulness of antimatter, the possibility of time travel (with or without the “grandfather paradox”), and the possibility of the existence of multiple universes. He adds to that plenty of intrigue, betrayal, desperation, and heroism in the face of impending doom for the human race.

Not one of his books has disappointed me yet. And kudos, too, for Greg Tremblay’s flawless narration!

Not too impressed with this book. Storyline good but so drasn out and ..... no infuriatingly tames ages to get on with the story. I was very bored and kept fast forwarded the book many times.

Deus ex machina.

I'll write this for entire trilogy. You can read book 1 through 3. But there was 1 thing : Deus ex machina" like event through out the entire series (yes I don't mean time traveling). Book 1 was ok (few or none ) book 2 (several "deus ex" like events) book 3 "deus ex machina" on the bigger scale (plot impact I mean). You may still like the series itself (story is ok, characters are ok - every thing is ok.... but not great and solutions that "save the day" ... could be more subtly introduce into story or better justified.
