After thousands of years, humanity has reached the stars. In less than one, they could lose it all. For Lieutenant Cameron Davis, the day begins like any other: with a hangover. Sitting in the crowded mess and nursing a cup of coffee, he has no idea that his entire world is about to be upturned. Two alien races, the Nangolani refugees and the Boxti horde, descend on Earth and continue their century-old battle. Humanity barely has time to catch its breath before first contact becomes total war. Now the target of annihalation at the hands of the powerful Boxti armada, Earth hastily joins in an alliance with gray-skinned aliens. But will it be enough to stop the oncoming swarm? And amidst the chaos in the skies overhead, a darker threat is lurking within. A group known as the Red Hammer has been waiting for an opportunity to emerge from the shadows, and their time has arrived. Will the mighty Fleet stop the superior alien threat, or will the sun finally set for humanity? Follow an ensemble cast of soldiers, politicians and rebels as humanity fights for survival in the first chapter of this epic trilogy.

Adam was born in Fort Worth, Texas on a blisteringly hot summer’s morning. He spent most of his life fighting dragons and monsters and saving damsels in distress, and things only got crazier as he got older. The Gray Wars has been kicked around in his head for 10 years, and it’s finally out on paper in some shape or form. Now he hopes to finish the series and finally move on with his life, maybe write about something sweet and innocent for a change. Adam is an officer with the National Guard, and he explodes things with tanks on the weekends. Adam lives in Los Angeles with his roommate and an estranged sandwich maker.Review:
A tremendously ambitious first novel, a galaxy-spanning tale of hard science fiction’ that tackles interplanetary diplomacy, [and] the realities of combat in the vacuum of space.”
Scott Tipton, New York Times bestselling author
When the Stars Fade captures the human dimension of warfare. Invasions, insurgency, devastation, and an incongruous war game hold a mirror up to our Republic’s experience over the last decade. It calls to mind Tom Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October and is a sound addition to any professional development library.”
Lt. Col. Mark Johnston, US Army Reserve
Korenman is adept at engaging the reader in action across the continuum of future war from the fleet actions of maneuvering battle groups and fighter formations to the small unit tactics of planetside soldiers. But where Stars truly comes into its own is with boots on the ground, where Korenman, with each lavishly detailed, well-crafted scene, reminds us again and again that now and in the far future, victories are won by individual men and women taking the fight to the enemy. The characters here are crisp and no-nonsense, and ex-military readers will smile at the authentic radio banter they trade on the tactical net apparently in Korenman’s future, some things never change.”
Cmdr. Paul Wynns, US Navy Reserve (retired)
Pilot, S-3B Viking
Adam Korenman is a compelling new voice in military science fiction. His prose puts you right in the cockpit, on the bridge, and behind a rifle on the ground with such authenticity you can almost taste the salt in the jargon.”
Chris Herschel, Owner and Game Designer, Trial By Fire Games
Where Korenman excels in the novel is his world building and intense action sequences that draw on his personal military experience.”
Jodi Scaife, Fanboy Comics
