Publisher's Summary

They’re coming. 

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.

Good, but one flaw annoyed me.

Great plot, loved the "who done it" mystery. BUT the internal "How many people have I killed?" dialogue got old and detracted from the story overall.

I enjoyed this.

I tend to listen to these in the car and I find myself happy to run errands to get a chance to listen to the next section. Greg does a great read and Nick continues to write a very engaging story making sure to hit all the plot lines I'm interested in. I will be continuing the series and hoping that Granger has more tricks up his sleeves.

Pretty Good Addition to the Series

This was a good book. I was left wanting more. It felt like the beginning of a story arc. There wasn't great action or closure on anything, but I know Mr. Webb will get us more soon to scratch that itch. Ultimately brewing into a great addition to the story. Thanks!!

Easily one of the best books in the Series so far!

With this being the 7th book in a series that has already delivered some of the most epic and incredible books, series, characters, races, combat scenes, space battles and more, Nick Webb had a lot to live up with this next book, and a lot of fans that were going to consume this in a heart-beat, myself being one of them.
I am very happy to say, that this book more than lives up to any expectations we might have had.
Webb has again, crafted this exceptional story, not only using the original characters, Proctor, who is just as brilliant as ever, Granger, who is not himself, having been almost reborn after nearly 13 billion years as a higher life form returning to primitive existence as a human, and of course other member of the original crew, Rana Scott, Zivic, Whitehorse, Qwerty etc each of them with their own distinct uniqueness (especially Rana – who you just have to love!!)
However, we have several new faces in this story, multiple new younger crew, brought forth to serve after the catastrophic losses from the previous swarm war. It makes for a really interesting, and fun mix of the older, experienced crew, hardened by a period of war, loss and comradery, and this new inexperienced crew, who are in awe of those who to them are ‘Legends’, but they now have to both work with, and fight with in a whole set of new problems that face the human race. These new crew have yet to fully finish their training either, having been forced to graduate early and complete ‘On the job training’ due to the huge losses from the Swarm War only months earlier that has left IDF suffering with losses of both people and ships.
Humanity is trying to come to terms with everything after the war, and the state of the galaxy, as well as trying to formalise relationships with other races, mainly due to Granger’s portent of doom that the Findiri are coming, and that they would bring the end of humanity with them.
With the end of the Swarm, Humanity has also discovered that there are other alien races that have been living not too far away from them (galactically speaking), but have been in hiding, and now wish to make contact, mainly with only one person, Granger.
Things only get worse for Humanity, when they discover that a Findiri fleet has actually reached the edge of human space, and destroyed a small colony (The description of this is incredibly well written, mesmerising, but also brutal and cruel, Webb does a masterful job of making you instantly hating the Findiri as pure Villains at the start of this book, but it makes you wonder if they actually are, or if there is something deeper going on with Granger). The Findiri only have two goals, find Granger, and destroy Humanity.
This is an intense and captivating story, once you start it, you won’t be able to put it down. There is a constant intrigue to the story, you just have to know what is going to happen next, this underlying mystery, and Webb is very clever at drip feeding you the pieces of the puzzle (and providing several bits to throw you off as well!!).
This is one of the areas that Webb really creates some of his best work in these books, using his characters, and his ability to create this stunning back drops, regardless of where the story takes us, Webb builds these extraordinary locations for us to visit, and get lost in, so that we can be completely immersed in the story. The world-building is stunning, the detail is incredible, you feel like you are on the bridge of the ship with Proctor, or in the cockpit with Zivic.
The Character work is just exceptional, with every part in this series, Nick Webb cements his place as one of the best Character Driven Mil Sci-Fi Authors on the market today, and Legend is another outstanding example of this.
Granger’s character is just superb, as the 13 billion year old Captain reincarnated having returned but without his memories of all he has done in his higher form, just knowing that he changed things, and knows things that have affected the galaxy, and possibly will affect it. Proctor is hilarious, as the cantankerous old Admiral, unwilling to bend to anyone who does not do what she wants, or doesn’t agree with her. Proctor is highly intelligent, has fought in both Swarm Wars, and knows more about the Swarm, than the actual Swarm do. Her Character is just brilliant.
One of the best characters in the previous books was ‘Ballsy’ who died in the last book, and left a big gap to be filled, but this has been picked up by his bat ship crazy son, Zivic, and he is just as funny as Ballsy and just as crazy (if not crazier).
The character work is one of the best parts of the book, and is so real and authentic.
This is easily one of the best parts of the Legacy Fleet series, and is a must read. If you have not got into this series, then now is the time. If you have, then you will love this new book, as it is just brilliant!!
Greg Tremblay is one of the true masters of Narration, providing these wonderful voices when he narrates, that are clear and concise, easy to understand. He has a wide range of both male and female voices, and they are so good, that you can easily distinguish which character is talking, without having to be told. On top of this, Tremblay is excellent at bringing out the emotional state of these characters as well, so that you not only listen to what they are saying, but understand how they feel as they say it, whether angry, sad, happy or excited, Tremblay portrays this, and really brings his characters to life. It really immerses you into the story, making it that much better to listen to.
Tremblay’s Narration is outstanding, and he really brings this story to life, making it an absolute must listen.

Worst of the series.

I can’t believe that I made it through this waste of a book. The last 1.5 hours were pathetic in the disjointed, throw it at the wall, pick up what fell and trow it at the wall again storyline. “I am your father” was missing but all of the other cliché junks was in there. I won’t be buying the next one, and you shouldn’t buy this one, save your money.
