The Parafaith War combines hard science fiction adventure with an insightful examination of the relationship between the sacred and the secular. In the far future among the colonised worlds of the galaxy, there's a war going on between the majority of civilised worlds and a colonial theocracy. Trystin Desoll grows up fighting against religious fanatics and becomes a hero, a first- class pilot, then, amazingly, a spy. What do you do if you're a relatively humane soldier fighting millions of suicidal volunteers on the other side who know that they are utterly right and you are utterly wrong, with no middle ground? Trystin Desoll has a ... plan.
