The treaty is signed. The war is over.
Or is it?
In the wake of the bitter galactic conflict, a cauldron of desperate refugees is rife with rival cartels and flooded with drugs and weapons.
In this pocket of lawlessness, old enemies are fighting a new war by proxy.
Captain Jackson Adams of the Coalition Defense Force is tasked with gathering a ragtag crew for a black ops mission—infiltrate the cartels and discover the enemy’s ultimate scheme.
But what they uncover is more horrifying than anyone ever anticipated.
The enemy crouches at the door.
Captain Jackson Adams has contented himself with civilian life, working the family ranch while exploring a new relationship – and trying to patch old ones. His team still holds a grudge after Jackson’s actions during their last mission almost got them killed. But he’s never missed them more as the next covert assignment sends him far from home.
The Galt system is the galaxy’s financial nexus – and a unlikely haven for communist terror cells. When a sudden plunge in galactic markets shows all the earmarks of an intentional act, Jackson is tasked with infiltrating the suspected attackers.
Without the benefit of his team.
Jackson is stunned to discover the terror network possesses funding that far exceeds mere sympathizer donations and technological superiority that could only come from inside the CDF. Their singular purpose? Cripple the economy and destabilize the Terran government to make way for a socialist utopia.
Now Jackson must find a way to get the band back together to stop a traitor.
Before the enemy within sends the Terran Coalition back to the Stone Age.
The shadow war has begun.
No matter the successes under his belt, Captain Jackson Adams fails in the one mission that matters most—family. Home to visit his ailing father, Jackson and his brother can’t stop bickering long enough to manage repairs around the ranch before duty again calls.
The League of Sol is in a silent war with the Terran Coalition. But Coalition Intelligence’s hands are tied without actionable proof—until an undercover asset is murdered and another goes missing inside an independent megacorp.
Nosamo Aerothermic has made a killing through atmospheric terraforming, creating stable planetary environments for human habitation. With refugees flooding the Terran border, their newest development is guaranteed to revolutionize the industry.
And draw more than League attention.
Both foreign and domestic enemies descend on the space station, complicating Jackson and his crew’s rescue of their intelligence officer. But when the League’s nefarious plans for Nosamo’s technology come to light, what was a simple heist becomes a desperate gamble, and Jackson is forced to ignore protocol in a race to save the Terran Coalition.
Before time runs out.
The CDF is no longer on defense.
En route home after their latest mission, Captain Jackson Adams and his covert unit are diverted for immediate reassignment. The Coalition Defense Force is undertaking a major refit of their long-range sensor network as the Terran Coalition navigates the troubled waters of a tentative peace with the League of Sol.
PASCORE was designed to detect enemy incursions, and the expansion will extend the network’s reach to allies in neutral space and the Saurian Empire. There’s been no direct evidence of League interference, but Coalition Intelligence isn’t taking any chances after inferior equipment is discovered and anti-military protestors converge.
All blind to the threat the enemy still poses.
Jackson’s unit infiltrates various factions to expose suspected League involvement and neutralize any disruptions before they occur. But distrust still permeates the team after his previous actions put them all at risk. As they close in on their nemesis, Jackson’s obsession once again threatens the entire operation.
Because a desperate adversary is a deadly one.
Blood is in the water.
Ever since his father’s death, Captain Jackson Adams is more than ready to escape the familial fallout when the CDF calls with his next covert assignment. What he doesn’t expect to encounter is another pencil pusher – this time from Internal Review.
With the CDF reeling from traitors exposed in their ranks, and former League worlds jockeying for position in the Terran Coalition, intelligence resources are stretched thin. The last thing Jackson needs is government bureaucrats breathing down his neck. But when word comes that prized Phantom starfighters have fallen into insurgent hands, everyone is suspect.
Including Jackson and his team.
Illegal arms sales threaten renewed hostilities with the League of Sol, and Jackson’s unit is tasked with uncovering the culprits responsible – wherever they hide. But as evidence implicating the Spencer administration mounts, Jackson must separate the wheat from the chaff in a desperate race to save the Coalition.
Before war returns to the Sagittarius Arm.
The tide of galactic war turns – but in whose favor?
The Coalition Defense Force is putting the hurt on the League of Sol. Despite the League’s superior numbers, Captain Justin Spencer and his fighter squadron return victorious after each enemy engagement.
But it’s only the calm before the storm.
The Eire system’s loss in the early days of war was a bitter pill for the Terran Coalition. Now the Coalition is pulling out all the stops to rescue her citizens from the hands of a repressive regime bent on domination at any cost.
But the enemy is cunning. When the CDF presses what they think is an advantage, the League’s strategy becomes painfully clear: they’ve been lured into a trap. As missiles fly and staggering losses mount, Justin and the CSV Zvika Greengoldare embroiled in the dogfight of their lives.
And many will make the ultimate sacrifice.
Protracted war is inevitable.
Six weeks ago, Lieutenant Justin Spencer was just another reservist in the Coalition Defense Force. Becoming a lifer wasn’t in the cards—until the League of Sol brutally attacked the Terran Coalition. With several pivotal battles now under his belt, friends and strangers alike call Justin a hero. But he finds the accolades difficult to swallow when the night only intensifies images from his first taste of combat.
Then he’s faced with an active duty extension.
The League is hitting supply convoys on their long journeys between the mining colonies. Without the rare minerals, Coalition shipyards can’t produce the needed firepower to fight off losses sustained from the enemy’s overwhelming forces.
An enemy that appears to anticipate the CDF’s every play.
When the CSV Zvika Greengold is tapped for a black ops action, Justin volunteers to pilot a captured enemy aircraft on what he discovers too late is a suicide mission. For any chance of survival, he’ll need to rely on more than sheer skill and dumb luck.
He’ll need a miracle.
There’s no rest for the weary.
The sun has set on General David Cohen’s galactic military service after twenty-two years in the Coalition Defense Force. Stripped of command of the CSV Lion of Judah by the new administration after his candid assessment of their tactics, David faces ending his illustrious career not as a war hero but a desk jockey.
But the League of Sol isn’t about to head off into the sunset to lick its wounds.
Though its shipyards lie in ruins and its leaders talk peace, the League still has their reserve home defense fleet – and a seething determination to use it to claim victory over the Terran Coalition once and for all.
As well as an old adversary ready to take General Cohen down.
Word reaches CIS that the enemy is secretly amassing forces. In a last-ditch effort, David joins old allies to commandeer a ship for a daring recon mission. With arrest warrants hanging over them but their suspicions confirmed, they risk their freedom to confront the Terran Coalition’s leadership with the newly discovered intelligence.
When the dust settles, David is tasked with a desperate mission: defend Canaan at all costs.
And like his father before him, this mission may prove to be his last in this epic series conclusion.
War’s cost is a bitter pill.
Eleven months of non-stop combat have transformed Captain Justin Spencer from a cocky reservist into a battle-hardened veteran. While new recruits rotate in to replace once familiar faces, nothing mitigates the sting that haunts Justin with each loss. Or silences the doubts that keep him from taking a complete leap of faith.
News from the battlefront remains grim even after the CSV Zvika Greengold’s daring strike against the League of Sol’s home turf. Despite technological superiority, overwhelming numbers of League battleships continue to outgun the Coalition Defense Force, leaving their superiors to draw a chilling conclusion.
The war is unwinnable.
The Terran Coalition’s saving grace has been independent merchants, transporting materials from outlying mining colonies to Coalition shipyards, keeping the CDF in the fight – until pirates with high-grade weaponry start picking off the freighters one-by-one. Instead of trading valuable cargo for innocent lives, however, the pirates have only one horrifying goal: leave no survivors.
Justin and the crew of the CSV Zvika Greengold are thrust into unfamiliar territory against a ruthless enemy willing to go to any lengths to avoid capture.
And pay any price to protect its secrets.
The safety is off.
After witnessing his son’s birth, Captain Justin Spencer contemplates leaving active duty in the Coalition Defense Force for a training post. New pilots straight from the academy are sorely unprepared for combat conditions, just like he was when the war with the League of Sol began. But after a year of intense dogfights, the CDF can’t afford continued losses from ill-equipped rookies.
Especially when disaster strikes.
Pirates target a civilian starliner, forcing the CSV Zvika Greengold to renew an old acquaintance. The intelligence agent’s methods are unorthodox at best, but Colonel Tehrani is determined to avenge the innocent.
No matter the cost.
Sustained CDF presence in neutral space brings back bad memories of Terran Coalition overreach in the fiercely independent outposts. But to flush out the culprits responsible for the horrific tragedy, Justin and the Greengold will go wherever the evidence takes them.
Even when their actions threaten to start another war.
Almost 1,500 pages of Military Science Fiction action!
Corporal David Cohen thought he’d left war behind.
He was wrong.
The Terran Coalition faces repeated and brutal attacks from the repressive League of Sol. To defend his home planet, David trades his dream of becoming a rabbi for a battlefront in the far reaches of space. When particle beams fly, his courage under fire brings quick promotion. But in the lulls between battles when he must confront his soul, David finds a different enemy: the ghosts of those killed under his command.
Yet in war, it’s kill or be killed—and the enemy shows no mercy.
David must square the tenets of his faith against his responsibility to crew and country. If he fails in his command, billions face enslavement by a ruthless regime. Now it’s an all-out fight for the galaxy’s freedom.
Because a man’s greatest foe lies within.

The League of Sol is down but not out. Now Colonel David Cohen tackles his most challenging task yet.
Ferreting out a traitor.
The League fleet has finally been driven from the Terran Coalition’s galactic arm. But enemies left behind on the planets that dot the local cluster won’t go quietly.
Under orders direct from the President, David dispatches a commando team to recon a League-held world, entrusting them with one of his top officers as a guide on the planet she once called home. Unexpected enemy fire leaves the team stranded in hostile territory with no means of escape unless they can disable the planetary defense system.
But David faces an all-new battle of his own. As a wave of League ships consistently stays one step ahead of him, his worst fears are realized.
The CDF has a mole.
Alongside the intelligence ship Oxford, David and the crew of the Lion of Judah race to discover the wolf in a CDF uniform and rescue those planetside before they are lost to a crazed League commander intent on annihilation over surrender.
If they fail, they’ll sacrifice more than just a battle.
They’ll lose the war.
