Terrence Compton is one of Earth's greatest admirals, a warrior almost without equal. Alongside his oldest friend and brilliant colleague, Augustus Garret, he and his forces have saved Earth from invasion by the genocidal robotic legions of the ancient First Imperium's insane computer Regent. There is just one problem. The First Imperium was held back not by military victory, but by the disruption of the sole warp gate connecting the two domains...and Compton and 300 of his ships are trapped on the wrong side, surrounded by the Regent's vast fleets and cut off from Earth. Pursued by their deadly enemy, Compton and his fleet must flee into the vast and unknown darkness of unexplored space, in search of safety, fuel, supplies...and ultimately a new home. The great admiral knows the one thing his people cannot do is seek a way back, a trail the enemy could follow to Earth. He is determined to prevent that from happening, even if the cost is dissension and mutiny. Their journey will take Compton and his people deep into the heart of the First Imperium, to the silent, windswept worlds where the ancient race that built the Regent once dwelled...and uncover the lost secrets of that great civilization's mysterious fall 500,000 years ago

Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes. In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers. As Erik rises through the ranks he finally finds a home, first with the marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists - men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved. Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? Who is the real enemy? Crimson Worlds II: The Cost of Victory - Available Now!
