Publisher's Summary

The Lost Fleet delivers thrilling combat on a grand space-opera scale. Now Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary embarks on a brand-new mission - to defend the Alliance from itself - in New York Times best-selling author Jack Campbell's latest action-packed novel....
Two Syndicate World star systems have fallen prey to a mysterious fleet of warships - a fleet controlled entirely by artificial intelligence - that is now targeting Alliance space. The warships are no mystery to Geary. They were developed by his government to ensure security but malfunctioned. If the Syndics learn the truth, the war with the Alliance will resume with a vengeance.
As the government attempts to conceal the existence of the AI warships - and its role in their creation - Geary pursues them, treading a fine line between mutiny and obedience. But it soon becomes clear that his fleet is no match for the firepower of the machine-piloted armada.
With the help of the Dancer species of aliens, Geary has tracked the AI ships to their secret base in the supposedly mythical Unity Alternate star system where his fleet, the last hope of the Alliance's future, will end the conflict at any cost....

The Alliance Strikes Back!

This is perhaps one of the most poignant books in the series thus far. Yes as a wise man once said "Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame. Whatever the cost." This time Geary and his closest must pay a high price to save the Alliance from itself.

Leviathan was brilliant. I loved every second, even the emotionally painful parts. I have been feverishly wanting a book that dealt with the political pieces of the Alliance. Boom, here it is! Yet every little twist and turn of the political knife could have jumped off the pages of today's newspapers. Political responsibility.. what is it? Who is responsible? Who holds the reigns?

I am disapointed that Mr. Hemry (Jack Campbell) no longer does the Audio introduction for each book... but that is such a small complaint against such brilliant writing. Thank you for giving us a quick peek into your imaginative world.

As always Christian Rummel personifies the people of this series. His work in bringing these characters to life has shown he is a master at his craft.

Just Brilliant.

Captivating story

Jack Campbell is one of my favorite Sci-Fi authors and this book “Leviathan “does not disappointing.

Apparently the Alliance Worlds has created a fleet of ships that operate on Artificial Intelligence, only the flag ship has a human on board. The Alliance has kept the existence of the AI fleet a secret. Two syndicate world Star Systems have fallen prey to this “dark fleet.” Now they are attacking Alliance space and Geary goes out to stop them. The dark fleet has the AI programmed with the tactics of the legendary Black Jack Geary.

Geary is having problems stopping this dark fleet. He calls for help from the Dancer species of aliens. Geary must stop this fleet before the Syndicate Worlds think the Alliance is renewing the war. Victoria Rione attempts to discover information and stop this fleet. In this book a few of the major long term characters in this series die a hero’s death.

The book is well written and moves at a fast pace. Lots of action and space battles, Campbell fully understands the implications of 3-D combat in space and does not waste the reader’s time with dry explanations, he just flows it simply into the story. Christian Rummel does a great job narrating this series.
