Conclave (The Silver Ships Book 20) Kindle Edition
Alex selects the human colonies of New Terra, Haraken, Omnia, and Méridien to solicit their attendance. Unknowingly, he sails toward a deadly encounter.
The Omnians have their supporters, but they also have their detractors. Nowhere is that truer than on Méridien. Alex, Renée de Guirnon, his partner, and Julien, the SADE leader, have continually disrupted the long-held norms of the powerful Confederation Houses.
In one instance, Alex wins the rights for SADEs to be freed from their boxes. In another, he presses the Confederation Council to construct ships and supply crews to support Omnia Ships’ fights against the dangerous Nua’ll spheres and Artifice.
However, Alex’s influence is most heavily felt when Mahima Ganesh, the tyrannical Council Leader, is deposed. Her supporters never forgive Alex for his trespass, and one House Leader decides Alex must pay for that insult.
Leader Darse Lemoyne is a clever man, who hopes to deal with Alex. Also, he desperately wants to be rid of an ambitious daughter. Daphne Lemoyne covets the House, while she pretends to be a doting daughter. If Darse succeeds in this plot, he rids himself of one problem or the other. If fortune stands by him, he will be done with both.

I’ve been lucky enough to have had a few interactions with Mr. Jucha and I feel like he has imbued the books with his personality, as does most writers, but him more successfully than most !
I look forward to the new series with anticipation and I hope it’ll give us more of the SADEs, more great personalities and many, many more great and uplifting stories.
Thank you S. H. Jucha, I hope it brings you some happiness knowing how appreciated your books (and hard work) are !
There were some interesting tweaks regarding FTL travel and communication, and a quantum-coupled gate system to allow instant travel across the local galaxy. The SADE (AI) characters rarely have flaws, with the exception of one AI who fully embraced the “heartless evil overlord” and another who was a “gentle giant” ruled by childish masters.
Now and then it was a challenge to follow the thread of who was who and how the characters related to each other. Some of the threads in the story were wrapped up too neatly, in my view, while others just petered out with minimal resolution. (The big bad Artifice AI gets a complete hardware refresh courtesy of a batch of AI clones/fan girls and then is left to... slowly degrade in isolation? Why? ) The conflict with the Colony suggested that the insectoids were exceedingly smart and very aggressive, but we never encounter the source of their intelligence, despite the fact that they appeared to be more than a match for the alliance races, quickly changing tactics and strategies as the heroes in the story worked to stop their expansion. The heroes rarely make mistakes, always save the day, and consistently put the bad guys in their place using peer pressure, social media, or political Aikido. In the case of one of the main characters, his super-human ability to solve problems and use multiple brain implants, combined with a semi-mystical fate to meet alien species and make friends everywhere he goes. My favorite thread was about the empath vs the psychopath assassin. There are enough threads and ideas to keep the reader engaged. Not a five star read, but a solid three-four, if you like space operas.
It is for me a bittersweet moment as I have literally stopped reading whatever I was to read the latest adventures of Omnia Ships and Co...
The "end" could be seen as a bit abrupt, but once I have assimilated the story, I suspect it will not be such. Already a new direction is teased, and I for one shall gladly "sign on".
May the Stars be with you all.

If you’ve just found this book series and love sci fi, may I recommend finding the first Silver Ships title and starting the journey there. Deep into this series comes the Pyrean Empaths series, again so enjoyable, that runs alongside the Silver Ships books but then, so excitingly, joins the two series together.
Thank you Scott, it’s been a fabulous and epic journey. I look forward to the new books on their way. Bravo.
