Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013
Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet - and himself - in harm's way.
An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems - only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring all of the First Fleet's attempts to communicate peaceful intentions, this system's species sends its ships into battle on suicide runs while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power.
Now, with a faction of his officers determined to eliminate this new threat at any cost, Geary must figure out how to breach the enemy's defenses so the fleet can reach the jump point without massive casualties - even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Jack Campbell.

There is Still a Need for Black Jack

Here we have another successful outing by Mr. Hemry. I had mixed feelings about the end of Dreadnaught, and wondered just what might become of the Alliance Fleet after the end of the war. However, I needn't have worried, as the author has put our heroes on a journey that brings them in contact with truly alien species, while ratcheting up the tension over exactly what is going on back home.

This latest entry had quite a few surprises, including some genuinely laugh out loud moments, and a few touching exchanges, especially as relates to the personal burdens of service, resentments that build up between those who serve and those back home, and the uncertainties that befall a society upon the sudden onset of peace. And space battles, there are space battles, wonderfully well thought out spectacles that demonstrate the author's singular blend of imagination and methodical construction, which he hints at in the introduction. I can't wait for the next book.

Those who have followed the adventure since Dauntless can look forward to a treat. And those who have yet to start have another reason to pick up the series.

- Aser Tolentino "I am a blind lawyer and aspiring writer, trying to read a little bit of everything but partial to sci-fi and military fiction."

Enigmas, Bearcows, Wolfspiders and Duct tape

So glad the Lost Fleet series is continuing. In this the second book of exploring the space on the other side of Syndic space brings us new species, problems, and political intrigue. Campbell does such a great job writing space battle scenes. The imagination to create new species, new worlds and customs and values always amazes me. I laughed when it was duct tape the wolf spiders wanted and a universal fixer. The ending of the book sets up for book 3 I can hardly wait. This series gives you a great escape into imagination and a bit of humor also. I feel good reading this series. Christian Rummel does a good job with the narration.
