Webb changes tone drastically in Independence, choosing to insert uncharacteristic sexual references and profanity-- not for realism, but for bulk, I feel. Sexuality and cursing certainly have their place in fiction, but Webb brings no passion of his own to their depiction here, and both come across as squalid and tiresome. It's not authorly.
I was trusting Webb to do better than this, and I will not be going on with the series. However, many readers will find the book and the storyline engaging enough, and having seen worse, will not mind the drab graffiti so much.
With Granger gone, the IDF turn to Shelby, now in her 70s, but a living legend after having fought next to Granger for so long, and with her expertise on all things Xeno.
Webb has taken the image from the front cover of the magnificent starship, and given it life with his words. He has then taken it to war with a new enemy and given us a brand new and entertaining story that you will not be able to put down.
As well as Admiral Shelby Proctor being back, there are a few other old faces (the best being Ballsy, but there are a few oldies), and so I don’t give up spoilers, I won't give names, there are a lot of new characters to carry the flag.
And they do it well. Webb has done a wonderful job of transferring from his original trilogy to this series without having to drag out a retirement village like the latest Star Wars movie, or giving us a completely new cast to get used to. Instead there is a great mix, and Proctor in the middle firing curses at anybody and everybody to keep them on their toes.
Webb uses his real life Science background to provide a backing for giving us some awesome tech in these books that is realistic, well described, and not so drawn out that you start flipping ahead. He also introduces some really interesting concepts that he can actually back with real science, and again, in an understandable way. This makes his books both interesting and readable, giving them an edge over some of the others.
Overall Legacy Fleet was an exceptional Series, and was one of my favourite, and this is a brilliant addition. I can’t wait for Defiance.
If you enjoyed the Legacy Fleet series, you will love this. This is Webb at his best, and should not be missed.

I liked the characters and the whole Shelby coming to the forefront of the story
Is the legend of Tim Granger and the fanatical religious cult based around it to be believed.Read more
