Publisher's Summary

We repelled the Swarm - for now. 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.

Hard time following

The story is so tangled with deception and misdirection it is hard to follow it.

very good story but rather short

the story is very intriguing there's a lot of action and the characters are easy to follow. Great crossover from the first book. Looking forward to the third book to see how things finally turn out.

Better and better as it goes along

I had a hard time getting into this book initially, but it picks up pace quickly and gets interesting.

Humankind is under siege from the swarm, and daily battles decimate human forces, although Captain Granger seems to be able to defeat the incursion, albeit at tremendous, unsustainable cost. As the story progresses, though, the author reveals a much more intricate plot that quickly becomes interesting in a sort of Tom Clancy kind of way, and the pace of the story and the action increases right up until the end. Along the we way we get tantalizing glimpses into Granger's dreams of what happened to him when the Constitution was in the singularity. We also get some good old fashioned political conspiracy along the way, though I have to say the ending doesn't make the reader have any warm feelings towards the united earth president, even if she is working to save all of human kind from the swarm.

If you enjoyed the first book at all, you'll certainly enjoy this one, and will also want to read the third, concluding book to see how it all ends, and whether the swarm can actually be defeated, or negotiated with, or whether they have any good motivations at all.

More! love these books

Very good follow up to Constitution. Glad certain plot points weren't drawn out over more books and I really enjoy the story flow. also at least this book didn't have 15 chapters in a row stating the exact same location every time. :-)

Already anticipating the next book and seeing where this story goes.

Very Entertaining!

Nick Webb knows how to craft a story! Engaging characters, some spectacular surprises, and plenty of action, subterfuge and machinations ensured that I was never bored. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Legacy Fleet series!

It is very entertaining!

I love this book! After the bit slow start in book 1, this one is very entertaining. I can't really give much info about it... if you liked book 1 - you will enjoy book 2 a lot more, so take it!

Fenrir767

Pure popcorn Sci-Fi that while fun at times degenerates into ridiculous plot twists overly simple space battles and just flounders and falls apart. I wish I liked this as much as the first and I will finish the series but not a good instalment at all

Brilliant Sequel to Constitution

Warrior starts off not long after the end of the Constitution, with Granger having returned from the dead, and, with the ‘Constitution’ basically being a write-off, he is given command of another Legacy Class ship – the ISS Warrior.
The story continues with the Human Race having to fight against the Swarm, an almost invincible enemy that continues to invade Humanity’s planets and colonies.
This is epic Sci-Fi at its best – an awesome alien race, the grizzled Captain, the loyal crew, and the tough old warship.
It’s everything you want in a good book. What makes it truly brilliant though is the way Webb tells it, and then the way that Tremblay narrates these words, captivating us with brilliant Sci-fi that you will not be able to stop listening to.
This is not just about the starship and her Captain, there are Political intrigues as well, with the President, the Vice President and members of the Military all vying for power during this time of crisis. This not only destabilises situations, but provides for some fascinating back story as well, making this book a bit more interesting than the usual Human vs Alien conflict.
Webb has also splintered the Human factions in a fairly interesting way, and without giving too much away, the Universe he has created for the story shows an interesting possible future for humanity, one that is both creative and intriguing.
For those Sci-Fi fans that love the tech side of things, or expect some detail, Webb does not disappoint. Given his background, he has the ability to easily write and convey the details about complex technology used in his work, but in a way that is easy to understand, and not get bogged down for pages (or chapters in some cases!) at a time. Instead, we get some awesome concepts and tech that is masterful, and the reason I love reading Webb’s books.
The most compelling part of this story though has to be the characters – from Captain Granger, to Shelby, the President the slimy VP, even the Alien species. There is a rich selection of characters that he has created, each giving an interesting perspective of the story. The relationship between Granger and Shelby is particularly interesting, especially after the start of the first book in which he loathed her so much. Now he can’t survive without her and considers her one of his closest allies and friends. The change and growth between the two as the war has gone on is very cleverly written, showing a real understanding of human interactions in stressful situations, especially combat situations.
Tremblay has again done true justice to Webb's characters giving them life, each with wonderful voice and emotion, allowing the listener to fully engage with the story.
It's this type of character driven story that adds a depth to the very common genre of space opera that makes Nick Webb’s work stand out, and makes it so superb.
Add to that an exceptional and engaging story line that you just can’t put down as Granger tries to find a solution to defeat an almost unbeatable enemy and save humanity, and this is a truly sensational and outstanding piece of work.
As usual, I don’t want to give anything away, but this is a brilliant sequel to Constitution, and if you liked that, you will love this.
As I have said, along with the exceptional writing, Tremblay's Narration is just beyond exceptional and he is easily one of my favourite Narrator's, as he brings the stories to life so well. You find yourself trying to find every little minute you can to listen to just a little bit more of the story, walking around the house with headphones on just so you can listen to another chapter, or 2, or 3....

As strong as the first (Constitution)

This book masterfully expands the story in The first book and is a page turner hard to put down.

Adventure Sci Fi

More of the same ‘seat of your pants’ action and intrigue building on the BSG flavoured debut. The characters and storyline develop well and the tempo is relentless. I’m more hooked than ever.

Fantastic second book! More please!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would highly recommend it to anyone, I couldn't turn it off which in my job was hard work as it's multidrop. lol But, I really enjoyed listening. :)

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have to admit, I'm really torn here. I adore Tim Granger, with his attitude and sense of humanity. But then I really fell for Ballsy (sp) Even the president grew on me!

What about Greg Tremblay’s performance did you like?

Following on from Book 1, Greg kept all the characters voices the same, they were distinct, and as soon as you heard them, you knew who they were. From the sadness of losing people, to the full on excitement of battle, there was time to get to know everyone and enjoy the full story.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I would love to! script writing is my passion, but yeah digressing here. Tag line. Mmm. Probably something along the lines of 'One man leads the fight against total annihilation, while everyone else is fighting amongst themselves.' I hate tag lines... lol

Any additional comments?

I will admit, I first listened to Greg to hear the sound of his voice for my own work, but that in no way has made me rate this book or story any higher that it truly deserves.

For some extra comments, I can say the short chapters didn't bother me as much this time around. I'd settled into the style of the story and the narration and found it much easier to flick from one side of the galaxy and character to another.

Some other parts that I really enjoyed,

I found I was left guessing all the time, who was responsible for each plot point. Issacson and Aivary, (sp sorry) were great characters pitted against each other, not knowing who to trust, then everything came to a head, well played by the President here, loved that she faked her own death to get him to talk.

The Dolmassy, I kinda had a feeling that they had something to do with Tim's healing, but wasn't totally sure. In the midst of the final battle, I was floored when they turned on the Swarm, and then it all fell into place. :) Kudos to the writer, Nick. Awesome job with deception there.

Some of my fav other moments though, were in the realizations that when Ballsy went into the singularity that he might actually come back, before then with ZacZac and afterwards when he came out with Fishtail. I have to admit I was a little concerned with his obsessing over her in the start of the novel because I didn't think they'd gotten that close, even with their combat and experience throughout the first book, even with him going to visit her parents and her son. But, it did grow on me, and I think he was just being a friend, where it felt a little creepy at first.

Bringing her back to life as a 'swam conduit' mmm now that I'm not so sure about. :)

Excited for book 3 though! When? Please let me know!

good book, good reader

This series of books is entertaining especialy when joined with execelent performance readers. This specific reader Greg Trembaly can change any normal book into an execelent one.

This book is book 2 of 3 from the Legacey Fleet series written by Nick Webb. It is a contiuiation of the stoey from book 1 (Constitution). The story kicks of basicly from where Constitution ended where Cptn Granger was invited back and given command of the Warrior in the fight against the Swarm.

This book is entertaining, the writer continues his seamless random good choice bad choice senarios which really keeps you guessing if the decisions made by the key characters are the correct ones. The writer continues to be fairly un pridictable which is nice touch. If i was to try judge which book is the better one between book 1 (Constitution) and 2 (Warrior) i would say they are on par.

In finishing this book is worth a read, or, if your listening to the Audio book, worth a listen.
