Blood of the Cosmos: the second book in Kevin J. Anderson's Saga of Shadows trilogy.

An epic space opera of the titanic conflict of several galactic civilizations against a life-destroying force of shadows, a dark cosmic force that has swept through the undercurrents of the human interstellar empire.

The intertwined plots, overflowing with colorful ideas, a large cast of characters, and complex storylines, span dozens of solar systems, alien races, and strange creatures. 
As the second book of the trilogy opens, the humans and Ildirans, having narrowly escaped annihilation at the hands of the Shana Rei and their robot allies in Book One, are desperate to find a way to combat the black cloud of antimatter of the Shana Rei. The mysterious alien Gardeners, who had helped them previously, turn out to be a disaster in disguise and because of them, the world tree forests are again in danger. The allies believing they have found a way to stop their dreaded enemies, a new weapon is tested, but it's a horrible failure, throwing the human race and its allies to the brink of extinction.

Blood of the Cosmos is another great SciFi space opera novel by Kevin J. Anderson and is part two of the Saga of Shadows series. If you haven't read any of Kevin J. Anderson's Saga of Shadows or Saga of the Seven Suns I really recommend that you do but the great thing is that you don't need to in order to enjoy this book. There is a great synopsis in the beginning that covers what happened in book 1. 
 
The plot involves shadow creatures who want the entire universe destroyed while people of a variety of races and cultures team up to stop them. This book was better than the first because the characters are so interesting and they evolved more in the second book. There are over 100 characters in the story and they all have their own lives and concerns. 
 
The people are what makes this a great book as they are diverse and interesting. The shadow creatures are extremely powerful and the ways that the people fight them are entertaining but all the subplots are what really makes this book a five out of five.
