Endless Blue is a stand-alone novel, unrelated to any of Wen Spencer's previous books. My first impression of this book was military adventure SF. And I was right on the second two counts. But it's only military in that the main viewpoint character, Mikhail Ivanovich Volkov, is the captain of a Novaya Rus warship, with a crew that includes a contingent of "Reds," clones specially adapted to be human fighting machines. And in that all of human space is under attack from an alien race that seems intent on wiping out humankind.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The appearance of the warp drive from the long lost Fenrir spaceship triggers an epic quest for Captain Mikhail Volkov. According to the drive's computers, Fenrir had been lost to hypothetical "nowhere" of subspace, but with the drive's housing covered with coral and sea life, obviously Fenrir has gone somewhere.  Faced with genocide at the hands of the alien Nefrim, humans need a miracle to survive.  On the chance that Fenrir's mysterious location holds such a miracle, Mikhail jumps into the unknown and crashes into the endless blue of the Sargasso Sea.

Every ship that misjumped from any race that discovered travel through subspace has crashed into its waters, creating a graveyard of rusting spaceships. On the Sargasso's great oceans, humans live alongside aliens in uneasy peace.

His ship damaged, his younger foster brother lost, and his sanity rattled, Mikhail discovers a secret that might save the human race--but only if he can repair his ship and return home.
