An impressive federation, the Alliance of Worlds consists of approximately 250 assorted civilizations, many with an extraordinary array of resources. They represent more than a quarter of the space-faring races in the galaxy. Because of its position in the universe, Alliance of Worlds faces many adversaries. Inflicting technological sabotage and arranging the murder of top officers, the crocodile-like Accadians plan to eliminate the Alliance of Worlds and other civilizations. The xenophobic Varlon also pose a threat to Alliance of Worlds as they again seek to expand. These two threats must be stopped. Recently promoted Commodore Robert Allen Sheppard is just one of the men called upon to repel this invasion in space and defend the worlds. A seasoned leader, he is ready to take on this deadly threat with his task forces at the helm of his new starship Phoenix. The first in a series of science fiction novels set in the distant future, The Phoenix Rising tells the story of a time of change for the Alliance of Worlds and its war battles with the Varlon and Accadian forces. But this is just the beginning.
