The Confederated Worlds: [Take the Shilling, Operation Iago, and A Bodyguard of Lies]
A thousand years from now, while Earth sleeps in virtual reality, three polities—the Confederated Worlds, the Unity, and the Progressive Republic—strive to connect the scattered, terraformed worlds of humankind by artificial wormholes. When they meet, they clash, in a decades-long struggle of arms that will embroil every human world, in which dedication to duty liberates worlds—and oneself.
The first three novels in The Confederated Worlds series are now available in one volume.
