The Saga of the Seven Suns

One of the funnest Science Fiction series I have read in a long time is The Saga of Seven Suns by Kevin J Anderson.  I has all of the vastness and energy of a true Space Opera.  It has lovable hero's and easy to hate villains.  I highly recommend it if you want to dive into a seven book series with lots of twists and turns.  It is a great ride (read)!
