Publisher's Summary

Rumors of Glory, book 1:
Humanity has colonized over 500 planets under the not-always-benevolent administration of the Federation of Planetary States via the FED Army and Navy. Longstanding grievances over economic exploitation by Earth-based companies have grown into a full-scale rebellion, and attempted secession has been tried by many of the more successful colonies. The Rebels believe a peaceful separation is possible. The FEDs believe an easy and swift military resolution is available. Both dreams of glory are shattered by the reality of a civil war that is rapidly escalating in scope and violence.
Rumors of Honor, book 2:
The interstellar civil war between the breakaway System States Union and the Federation of Planetary States continues to escalate with the help of sophisticated planning computers on both sides. Rumors of Honor is military science fiction that includes space battles, ground battles, political maneuvering, strategic deception, personal triumphs, and personal tragedies. Watch as the necessities of war force protagonists on both sides to compromise their honor.

Familiar story - excellent character/plot arcs

While the story of interplanetary rebellion is a familiar theme in space colonization novels, what distinguished this was was the careful creation of many interestingly written characters. While at times the story seems to languish on detail astrogation planning and maneuvers, the interplay between the characters makes up for these instances.

If you enjoy a good space opera, you'll not regret picking this one up.

Like playing chess with yourself

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The best way to explain this, without spoilers, is to compare it to playing chess with one's self. All of the action is there but the play is so very balanced it isn't interesting and you don't know for whom to root. Each stage of the war is viewed very pragmatically without anyone ever getting any real advantage... at least for some time. (no spoilers) Many people will like this series, but it was not among my favorites

That being said, Dietmar Wehr is a master story teller in the Synchronicity Wars series. If you are looking for an extremely well written and engaging series, I recommend you start there. Or, another fantastic option is The Lost Fleet by John G. Hemry.
