Introducing the Far Stars Series...


I'm excited to announce my first series to be published by HarperCollins Voyager.  The Far Stars series is something new and completely different, a trilogy I've been working on for a long time, and one I'm thrilled to see so close to release.  I appreciate each and every one of you who read my books...you are the best fans any writer could hope to have.  I think the Far Stars is the best thing I have written (and I can't wait until the books are released to see how you all feel).  And if you all enjoy the series as much as I hope you will, I have two further trilogies planned as follow ups. I know you all hate to wait for the next book in each series, so I made sure you wouldn't have to this time.  All three books are finished, and HarperCollins will be releasing them in consecutive months.  Book one, Shadow of Empire, will be released on November 3, 2015.  Book two, Enemy in the Dark will be out on December 1, 2015, and book three, Funeral Games will be launched on January 19, 2016.  All volumes are currently available for preorder in both ebook and print formats.

The first installment in the Far Star series, a swashbuckling space saga that introduces the daring pirate Blackhawk and the loyal crew of the Wolf’s Claw, from the author of the bestselling Crimson Worlds saga.

Smuggler and mercenary Arkarin Blackhawk and the crew of the ship Wolf’s Claw are freelance adventurers who live on the fringe of human society in the Far Stars. A veteran fighter as deadly with a blade as he is with a gun, Blackhawk is a man haunted by a dark past. Even his cynicism cannot banish the guilt and pain that threaten his sanity.

Sent to rescue the kidnapped daughter of his longtime friend Marshal Augustin Lucerne, Blackhawk and his crew find themselves drawn into one deadly fight after another. When the Wolf’s Claw is damaged, they are forced to land on a remote planet ravaged by civil war. Pulled unwittingly into the conflict, they uncover disturbing information about secret imperial involvement that could upset Lucerne's carefully laid plans.

For the Marshal is determined to forge a Far Stars Confederation powerful enough to eliminate all imperial influence and threats in the sector. He needs a skilled warrior like Blackhawk on his side, but the mercenary, plagued by dark memories from the past, refuses to join the cause. All too soon, though, he and his crew will have to take a stand.
