“A tremendously ambitious first novel, a galaxy-spanning tale of ‘hard science fiction’ that tackles interplanetary diplomacy, [and] the realities of combat in the vacuum of space.”
—Scott Tipton, New York Times bestselling author
It’s the year 2236, and humanity can’t catch a break.
While we’re licking our wounds from a bloody civil war, two alien armadas stumble into the Solar System fighting one of their own. At odds are the fearsome Boxti Horde and their ancient enemies, the Nangolani.
Naturally, we can’t resist picking sides and joining the fight, but after several crushing defeats, we’re forced to open Pandora’s Box to win the war: A top-secret special forces program.
Meanwhile, a hotshot starfighter has his mettle tested when the war separates him from his best friend and favorite wingman.
Tech-savvy and full of action, humor, and intrigue, When The Stars Fade is the first in a six-book series, The Gray Wars.
