Man's outer colonies are being destroyed one by one, leaving nothing behind. Suspecting an old enemy, Captain Henry Kuttner, of the Solar Navy rail-gun ship the Onslaught, wants to investigate. But the Onslaught is scheduled to be decommissioned, and Captain Kuttner given mandatory retirement on one of the League's pleasure worlds. But this old war dog isn't going down without a fight.Going against orders, Kuttner leads his crew in search of answers. That search leads straight into the territory of mankind's former enemies, the deadly reptilian Draconi, whose colonies are also being destroyed, and they blame man.Now the crew of the Onslaught must risk violating a fragile peace treaty and all out war to solve a cosmic mystery before more lives are lost. Only the ship's maverick second in command and a disgraced Draconi scientist can unravel the secret of this enigmatic enemy and its sinister purpose before it's too late. But there are certain factions who want the human-Draconi war to begin anew, and they'll stop at nothing to make it happen. And meanwhile, in the outer dark, an ancient enemy returns. An enemy known only in the songs of a long-dead alien race. An enemy that leaves chaos in its wake. A maverick first officer, a misfit crew and an aging vessel are all that stand between humanity and total destruction.If you like Peter F. Hamilton, David Weber, or Chris Fox's Void Wraith series, you'll love Star Swarm, the first volume in an exciting new space opera trilogy."Classic military science fiction in the vein of David Weber, with conspiracies and ancient threats throughout. I want the next book now." --Joseph Cadotte, author of In the Land of Nod… (more)
