Publisher's Summary

Deep within Syndicate Worlds' space, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous journey home under the command of Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who was revived after a century spent in suspended animation. Geary's victories over the enemy have earned him both the respect and the envy of his fellow officers.Geary has made many risky decisions as commander, especially in ordering the Alliance fleet back to the Lakota Star System, where it was nearly destroyed by the Syndics. It's a desperate gamble that may buy Geary just enough time to prepare for the Syndics' inevitable return, and give the fleet a fighting chance at survival.But even as he struggles to stay one step ahead of the enemy, Geary must face conspirators within his own fleet who want a change of command and are willing to do anything to bring it about. Geary knows that his fleet must stand together or the Syndic forces will tear them apart.BONUS AUDIO: Author Jack Campbell explains why he sees Valiant as the latest in a long tradition of "sea stories".

I like honorable heroes!

This is one of my favorite series and I look forward to see how the fleet will get back home. I guess you could criticize some of the redundancies found throughout this series (such as the retelling of Black Jacks 100 years in the freezer, or the delays caused by the limits to the speed of light, etc.) but I guess if you didn't include them, readers of later books, who did not read earlier books would complain. I also enjoy the interplay between the main characters and the voices provided to them by the narrator. If you like honorable heroes (like I sometimes do) you will like these books, if not, you might not. Enjoy!

Shazam!

Each book in this series just gets better. The pace is back to normal after the rushed feeling of the last. Exquisite detail of space organization for those who enjoy meat and potatoes with they SF fluff. 3 dimensional character, and great plot are just a few of the weapons in this writers incredible arsenal.

Our hero the revived and thawed Jack Black Geary has finally got his game back on. After the brutal crush the Syndics had served his fleet Geary is back in top form. However great things are moving with the Syndics treachery strikes from home. Someone is sabotaging the fleet, betraying not just Geary but the entire Alliance. Betrayed, battered but not beat Geary must put an end to the mischief threatening the rag-tag fleet and get the key back to Alliance space.

There is also some romantic interests burning down the hallways of the fleet, try not to get burned!

Enjoy the entire series of "The Lost Fleet" it is one of the best written Sci-Fi series since EE Doc's immortal series.

Also the narrator is perhaps one of the best character driven narrators I have heard. I really enjoy his telling of the story. As good, if not better than Jim Dale. Great job on this most excellent audio book.
