The Phage War had been a devastating conflict for the Terran Confederacy. Even with the destruction of their terrifying, implacable foe, humanity is still reeling. Political alliances are crumbling, and their mighty fleet is in tatters. There is nothing to celebrate, even after such a complete victory.
They soon learn that there are other stellar neighbors - and they've been watching the conflict with great interest. One species comes with an offer of friendship and alliance, but humanity is weary and distrustful, their only interactions with aliens having resulted in the near eradication of their kind.
Before the ashes of war have been fully swept away, Captain Celesta Wright is dispatched to the Frontier with a small taskforce to investigate a mysterious signal while the Confederacy struggles to hold itself together. A partnership with this new species could help accelerate the recovery effort, but is the offer too good to be true? Can humanity risk another fight with an advanced alien species right on the heels of the bloodiest war that had ever been waged?
New Frontiers is the first book of the Expansion Wars Trilogy, an all-new adventure in the Black Fleet universe.

New Frontiers, New Potential

A Great Return
Mark Boyett is to Joshua Dalzelle's excellent novels what Stephen Fry is to JK Rowling's Harry Potter - definitive and you can't imagine anyone else doing them as well.
All the ingredients that made the first three stories so good are present. A believable depiction on the far future with interesting, fleshed out characters that hooks quickly and keeps you there for the whole story. I can't think a dull moment in the whole story.
Mark Boyett has a good range of accents and is consistent with them. As a Brit myself, I find his British accented characters to be very well done. I love his slightly wry, world weary, cynical delivery which complements the story perfectly.
