From official release/information:
Sword of Orion is the first in a new series by Liaden Universe creators Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. It's an entirely new universe set after a cataclysmic civil war in which the alliance has finally managed to defeat the stifling Oligarchy, although most of the alliance fleet was lost along with the Oligarchy. A fragile freedom is now available to the billions of people who live in the area of the Milky Way known as the Sword of Orion, but there are still many who long for the return of the Oligarchy, and the power and privilege they enjoyed under its rule. And it looks like they may have just found a way to reverse the outcome of that ultimate battle.
