Publisher's Summary

New York Times bestselling author Jack Campbell’s action-packed Lost Fleet series has propelled readers from deep space to the very edge of their seats. Now Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary embarks on a thrilling new adventure to defend the Alliance and safeguard the future.
Geary and the crew of the Dauntless have managed to safely escort important alien representatives to Earth. But before they can make tracks for home, two of Geary’s key lieutenants vanish. The search for his missing men leads Geary on a far-flung chase, ultimately ending at the one spot in space from which all humans have been banned: The moon Europa. Any ship that lands there must stay or be destroyed—leaving Geary to face the most profound moral dilemma of his life.
To make matters worse, strains on the Alliance are growing as the Syndics continue to meddle. Geary is ordered to take a small force to the border of Syndic space. But what he finds there is a danger much greater than anyone expected: A mysterious threat that could finally force the Alliance to its knees.
As Geary spearheads a desperate battle to protect the Alliance against a shrewd and powerful enemy, he’s left with just one question: Who are they?

Is it just me? 😉

Any additional comments?

This is one of the better Black Jack novels. I've read or listened to all of them. The overarching concept of both series is creative an holds our interest. The action scenes and battles are usually well done. But they all share two problems that keep them from being great. First, the dialogue is often too verbose. Second, is it just me or does Black Jack talk and sound just a little too much like Buzz Lightyear? 😎

Another great book in the series

What made the experience of listening to Steadfast the most enjoyable?

The narrator really brings the characters the story and characters to life in my minds eye. This is another great book for this series. I can't stop listening. The characters and storyline is one of my favorite of all time.

What did you like best about this story?

The unfolding of some sort of Alliance conspiracy.

Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favorite?

Blackjack of course.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The saga continues.

Any additional comments?

I just can't wait for each release. I hope there are 300 books released for this series.

A little bit 'slower' than the others

A little bit 'slower' than the others but I'm still here! Started a little slow but at the very end it got there :)

Seemed like a filler episode

If you could sum up Steadfast in three words, what would they be?

Missed the mark

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Disappointed that the story didn't seem to resume from the stuff discovered in the last book, but rather drifted into new plotlines at an unresolved tangent. Perhaps this is the intention of Mr Campbell, and both storylines will re-combine in the next book. I certainly hope it does!

What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

Great narration. Didn't have any issue with Christian Rummel's performance in this Audiobook. Keen to hear more of his work.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really. After the plot lines from the last book remained unfinished after the first part of the audiobook, I finished the second part kind of zoned out while working. No major spoilers to be had that drew me back in. Even while barely paying attention I could see where the story was going, and thought it was becoming pretty silly.

Any additional comments?

Not a great book for Jack Campbell (I've come to expect pretty epic reading from him in the past, this is merely good). I'd strongly recommend it to people who have followed the series, as it does have some really nice emotional interactions between Blackjack and other characters, and you find out some more about what's happening in the Syndicate and Alliance worlds. Not a great deal mentioned regarding the other empires of man that exist on the other side of earth though. So I am pretty disappointed about that. Thought it would be a really interesting new path. Hopefully future books will address that and the Enigma's more.

Still keeps the interest but getting predictable

While the story doesn't have the same excitement of earlier books it still interesting to listen to. Maybe we know Jack Campbell too well, or maybe he's stuck in the universe he created, but the main plot points are a little predictable. Hopefully the next book will through up something unexpected.

Christian Rummel is a great narrator, there is absolutely nothing your can fault with the performance.
