Carrie must overcome her personal weaknesses and, for the first time in her life, succeed in her job, to uncover a threat to the entire galaxy.

A downed starship ...
A deadly invisible menace ...
When the prospecting starship, Galathea, crash-landed on a remote planet, the crew thought that help would arrive soon. They were wrong.
The first officer's in the brig, and a series of deaths have left CSO Jas Harrington where she least expected to be-in command. That's fine. O rdering people around is her second-best talent.
Unless she can whip the third-class engineer into shape, the ship's going nowhere. And the ship needs it to go somewhere, fast as a lien predators are trying to break in.
When the aliens make their move, only a miracle can prevent Jas and the crew of the Galathea from being stranded forever.

Jas Harrington has risen from a lowly ensign to the rank of commander in the Unity Alliance, which has been at war with the Shadows for the last five years.

As the battle to decide the fate of the galaxy draws near, Jas readies her starship, the Thylacine, to play its part in defeating the enemy.
The fate of humanity and galactic civilization hangs in the balance, and she hopes that if the allies win, the life she’ll lead afterward is worth fighting for.
Shadow War is book ten and the final book in the fast-paced, action-packed Shadows of the Void space opera serial.
