The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Julian May - Blue Tyson

Julian May is most well know for the aliens, time travel and psionics in prehistoric time Saga of Pliocene Exile, and its prequel Galactic Milieu books - which do indeed have some giant mind-blasting space battles. She also had a series that is thematically similar to Stephen Donaldson's Gap series, if nowhere near as dark. Here though a reprobate scion of some interstellar capitalists looks to try and halt the alien takeover.

In the final Galactic Milieu novel Magnificat humanity moves towards joining the Galactic Unity, and asking for helping Jack the Bodiless and Diamond Mask stop the open space war that Marc Remillard's rebels have instigated.
