Book 2 in Rebel Fleet series (2016)
What enemy could be more terrifying than a soulless, alien machine?
A year ago the Kher Empire was forced to retreat, but they were not beaten. In ORION FLEET they return with a new weapon. A huge ship driven by AI begins methodically grinding inhabited worlds to dust.
This unstoppable enemy is without fear or remorse, and the Rebels begin a desperate battle just to slow its advance.
Leo Blake takes Earth’s first warship into space to find a counter to this deadly new attack. The Imperial Fleets take notice of Earth’s interference, and they’re intent upon revenge. Even if he wins, Blake might have doomed our homeworld.
