Synopsis of A Forest of Stars: The Saga of Seven Suns, Book 2

The Author of 27 national bestsellers is back with the second novel in a thrilling new science fiction Series. Five years have passed since humans set fire to the gas-giant planets, unwittingly committing genocide of the Hydrogues--an infinitely powerful species of aliens--and igniting a war of epic proportions. Meanwhile, as humans struggle to fight against increasing hostilities from the Hydrogues, they learn from the Worldforest that they have awakened an ancient, fearsome, and merciless enemy in the Hydrogues. And when the water-based Wentals and the sun-dwelling Faeros are found, will humans finally have the allies they need? Or will they be caught in the middle of a war that could break apart the galaxy....This thrilling, multi-volume chronicle of a legendary war that spans the galaxy is written in the vein of the best works of Peter F. Hamilton, Dan Simmons, and Frank Herbert.

Reviews of A Forest of Stars: The Saga of Seven Suns, Book 2


Kevin Anderson has created a fully independent and richly conceived venue for his personal brand of space opera, a venue that nonetheless raises fruitful resonances with Frank Herbert's classic Dune Series. -- Paul Di Filippo, Scifi.com

It's space opera in its purest form, combining the childlike enthusiasm of the old Flash Gordon serials with the complex plotting of Frank Herbert's Dune. -- John C. Snider, ScifiDimensions

Despite the headache of sorting out who's who all the time (some readers might resort to taking textBook-style margin notes) the novel is interesting and rewarding... -- Chris Wyatt, Cinescape

The only bad thing is this whole Book is the flyleaf... when it says that we won't get to see what happens next until Summer 2004. -- Cindy Lynn Speer, The Fantastica Daily

A FOREST OF STARS is interesting and worth the read--but also disappointing for the way it falls short of its promise. -- BooksForABuck
