Civil war boils across the galaxy in the fifth book in Jay Allan’s Blood on the Stars series.

A Deadly Fight to the Finish…

The warrior culture of the Alliance has fragmented, and comrade fights comrade, brother kills brother. The Red Alliance forces, backed by the Union and its propaganda machine, have the advantage in numbers and position, and they are pushing forward, driving relentlessly toward the final attack, the one that will destroy their enemies.

The Gray Alliance forces are weaker, trapped in the great Sentinel-2 fortress where they’ve established their headquarters. Their enemies have the larger fleets and armies, and control of the homeworld…but the Grays have Tyler Barron and Dauntless.

The Confederation’s celebrated captain and his famous ship have been reinforced, and the newly promoted Commodore Barron now commands a small fleet of battleships, every vessel Admiral Striker could spare to reinforce the faltering Gray forces.

One final battle is all that stands between the Red fleet and victory, and it seems the Grays have no choice but to stand on the defensive and wait for the fight they know they can’t win. Unless they try something else, a wild gamble, a desperate plan to pull victory from the jaws of almost certain defeat. It will take all Barron and his people can give, and put Dauntless and the ships of his task force to the test. But it is the only way to win the victory, to prevent the Reds from a triumph that can lead only to a disastrous invasion of the Confederation, one that Barron knows he has to stop…whatever the cost.

Reader Praise for Blood on the Stars:

“If you have enjoyed Jay Allan’s other series, this new one has a lot of similarities as well as some big differences. The similarities are a military conflict in the far future with a space navy and marine focus – that’s about it. The big difference is the scenes are really focused on the leaders of the two opposing captains of space battleships, and the trials and tribulations each are facing as well as the individual sacrifices the individual spacers and marines are making in order to win the battle.”

“I particularly appreciated the portions where we approached the wars from the standpoints of opposing forces, at times without a clear indication of which side was deemed by the author to be the favored position. There is an excellent mix of military strategy, battle dynamics, and character interplay, with sufficient surprise elements.”

“I am an avid military sci-fi reader. And I have read a lot of Jay Allan’s e-books. This series is absolutely the best of any of the books I have read to date, from any author. Mr. Allan outdid himself with this series. I was riveted by the action, suspense, characters, and story lines. My only regret, my only complaint is that each book ended way too soon…. I wanted more. I cannot recommend these books enough… but make sure you have plenty of time to read… you will have a hard time putting these books down. “
