I found this while browsing one of my favorite blogs,
Walker of Worlds, written by Mark Chitty, a lover of Space Opera.
Veteran is a fast paced, intricately plotted violent SF Thriller set in a dark future against the backdrop of a seemingly never ending war against an unknowable and implacable alien enemy.
Check out the synopsis on Walker of Worlds, it sounds awesome.
It comes out in June 2010. I am going to order it now.
