Empire of Silence - Christopher Ruocchio
Empire of Silence (Sun Eater, #1) Hadrian Marlowe, a man revered as a hero and despised as a murderer, chronicles his tale in the galaxy-spanning debut of the Sun Eater series. A big book, a truly great read. Has a flavour of Frank Herbert's Dune without the LSD. The only problem with it, is it's the first book of a series and the rest haven't been published yet. I want more.
