The Dark Between the Stars is space opera on a grand scale. Twenty years after the elemental conflict that nearly tore apart the cosmos in The Saga of Seven Suns, a new threat emerges from the darkness, and the human race must set aside its own inner conflicts to rebuild their alliance with the Ildiran Empire for the survival of the galaxy.

'A realm of wondrous possibilities ... A fascinating series' Brian Herbert

'A space opera to rival the best the field has ever seen' SF Chronicle
