The Great Human War is over, but the planet Demeter is far from peaceful.

In this sequel to A CROWD OF STARS, Ambassador Jon Hendrik works to keep dueling political factions from re-igniting that war.

When he and his lover Niva Tessler are kidnapped and Niva's family members are placed in danger, the conflict becomes all too personal.

While editing A CROWD OF STARS, I found myself wondering what might happen next to now-former starcraft commander Jon Hendrik.  I also wanted to examine the potential conflict between people who embraced a “post-scarcity” economy and those who feared it endangered their “traditional” values. 

That led me to place Jon in the unaccustomed role of ambassador, where he had to develop new skills to solve very different problems compared to his time as a military commander.

THE FALLEN SUN is a very different story from A CROWD OF STARS.  It’s not a war story, though it has plenty of action.  And I decided to focus only on Jon Hendrik, although the story also shows us the latest on other characters, including Rachel Adero, Mark Kinkaid, and the Eminence.

I hope you enjoy THE FALLEN SUN!
