Book 2 of The Unity Wars is almost here! The Defense of Provenia goes live on August 14th.
The Unity Wars is going to be to be a massive, sweeping series. I won’t say outright how many books, but it’s going to be a lot, which is part of why the rapid release is happening. The Defense of Provenia is out this month, and The Alliance Rises will be out in September.
Since it is a big galaxy, Book 2 begins the second major story arc of the series. We are moving halfway around the galaxy, to meet new characters and a threat that was introduced in the freebie, Incident at Trakan: the M’tait. (I’m currently planning on three major arcs as the story progresses.)
The Alliance Rises will return to the Scalas Arc in September. Book 4 will introduce the third major arc of the story in October.
A Nightmare From the Sky
Gaumarus Pell is a Corporal in the Provenian Planetary Defense Force. He’s had a quiet career, up until the simmering rebellion on Provenia abruptly escalates to a level of violence never before seen. The visiting Knights of the Order of the Tancredus Cluster think that an off-world terrorist group might have infiltrated the rebellion.
But it is worse than that. The M’tait are coming. And when the ravagers of worlds descend from the deep black of space, nothing is ever the same again…

(I am going to be getting back to the Lore and Background posts eventually. Been ferociously busy here lately.)
In the thousands of years of galactic history, no single power capable has ever been of exerting its influence farther than a few light years. The expanses of space are too vast, the sheer military and logistical demands of ruling entire star systems too great. To build enough ships and recruit enough soldiers was prohibitive, even with the resources of an entire star system.
Until now. A sinister force has arisen on the edge of the galaxy. It wields technology that might just grant it galactic domination. And Valdek is in its crosshairs.
When a plea for help from the planet Valdek reaches the Caractacan Brotherhood, the ancient order of peerless warriors is quick to respond. Their Code demands it. To fight for the weak and defenseless is their purpose. And Centurion Erekan Scalas has lived that Code through ten years and countless battles.
But even he isn’t ready for what they face on Valdek. An enemy as inhuman and ruthless as any in the thousands of years of galactic history has descended on the beleaguered world, intent on conquest. An army of men who swarm like ants, and all have the same face…
The First Galactic War Has Begun
The Unity Wars began as a mental exercise in reworking the prequels to a favorite space opera movie trilogy to make them better and more logical. The first book in the sprawling series that has been spawned from that exercise, The Fall of Valdek, is now available on Kindle and Paperback. Get yours today, and enter a vast galaxy of war, adventure, heroism, and villainy!
