The Lenticular Series is a galaxy-spanning space opera trilogy that begins with Traitor’s Run.
Twenty years ago, humanity was almost annihilated by the alien K-Chaan. Now the Human Hegemony dominates the surrounding alien species with ruthless force.
Hegemony pilot Rhees Lowrans is thrown out of Fleet when her actions cause the death of her boyfriend. Thrust into a Diplomatic Corps job she doesn’t want, Rhees sees first-hand how the Hegemony will sacrifice anything and anyone – including her – to protect Earth.
Meanwhile far from the Hegemony, in the Lenticular, Udun – one of the insular, empathic Kresz species – rebels against the constraints of life on Homeworld. The other Kresz treat him like an outcast because he wants to travel to the stars. When his House Leader sends him on a secret mission to a nearby planet, he learns about the coming threat from the Hegemony’s expansion into nearby space. Returning home his warnings are ignored. Then the Hegemony invade Homeworld and begin mutilating the population, removing their empathic organs.
Rhees knows she has to stop the Hegemony killing innocent aliens, even if she risks destroying humanity as a result.
