The Wild Stars series is built for people who want a story that is rich with drama, thick with story...

Jon Mollison did an in depth review (here)
about Cirsova's first edition of Wild Stars 4:
"The seamless merger of sci-fi and fantasy... crackles,
and the adventures leap... with a relentless pace that's a joy to follow along.
New characters step on scene fully formed, and fully described for newcomers to the series,
and Tierney doesn't shy away from jerking the rug out from the reader's expectations
in a way that is both fun and inspiring."
""Wild Stars Rising"... makes for a great introduction to the world.
In many ways, the Wild Stars universe reminds me of the Lensman series,
and if you've ever read that classic series by the old master Doc E. E. Smith,
you'll recognize that for the compliment it is."

"A stunning and enjoyable read - the omnibus is worth the investment to ensure completeness of the read,

and is happy to sign and personalize your copies at no charge!
All of these books were released at the very end of 2019,

Of Great Migrations and Incredible Feats:
When I wrote my first Wild Stars novels back in the 1970s
three of concepts that drive the mechanics the Wild Stars universe
challenged the accepted views of our reality.
One was that mankind made our first migration into space and colonized planets circling the brightest stars in the night sky some 75,000 years ago.
Then, around the year 2000, geneticists cracked the human genome and discovered that the human population crashed
to only a few thousand people living on Earth around 75,000 years ago (Wild Stars Book 4
explains why the rest went).
The other two were the often mocked concepts of time travel and starships that can travel faster than the speed of light.
On October 25 of 2019, this story was released:
