The story continues from The Lost Fleet, but isn't the same. It never lost my interest.
I would never have picked this book for myself, I got it for my husband to listen to. We ended up listening to The Lost Fleet series together and then we wanted more... I wanted more. This is a really great series.
who docent love a good story especially if its about aliens or monsters or Gods.
its part of a whole bunch of books that keep you wanting to know whats next.
i like fact that its so complete at points and obvious at others
the lost fleet
see if the director from the hobbit can make these books into 3 movies.
Fun, Engaging, Exciting
Campbell does a great job of reuniting all the characters from the previous series while introducing new conflicts and characters into the fold.
I love the Jack Campbell introductions as they give brief insights into the series. Rummel's performance was top notch as always and I am constantly amazed at how he finds new voices for newly introduced characters and his consistency with voices he created for existing characters.
We all would like to think and act like Admiral Geary....a man with integrity,honor,intelligence and compassion. His consistency and morals elevate the fleet, the soldiers and the galaxy to more honorable behavior. Seeing his thought processes made each situation a unique and highly anticipated.
Yes, the storylines are woven together well with action, conflict and great word pictures used in balanced fashion to imprint one's imagination.
Nothing too bothersome. All his characters had identifiable voice patterns and accents to give life to each person.
Hurry with the next one!!!!
I love the fact that Christian Rummel continues to narrate the story as he read the previous 6 books in the Lost Fleet saga. There's nothing worse than listening to a series of books narrated by a single person and part way through a series they switch people.
You come to associate a certain performers' voice with a character or characters and when they change performers' it's jarring.
If you like hard (okay, maybe just a little squishy) science fiction with a huge dose of drama and solid, if not overly deep, characters, Jack Campbell is an author to keep on your list. I've listened to the whole Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier series', and there wasn't a slow or disappointing book in the bunch.
It's all about politics and space combat, and a clash of cultures that could ultimately save humanity.
My only complaint (and it's really petty), is that by naming the books after random ships it's a little hard to keep track of what order they come in. I needed a cheat sheet that I kept on a memo in my Blackberry so I knew in what order to listen.
I said it was petty.
Great narration by Christian Rummel. For space opera and science fiction fans these are a great listen.
This book was almost entirely character development for characters from a previous series. Without the pretext of the other series, this book becomes very boring very quickly.
The entire first half of the book amounts to a college course on interplanetary geopolitical relations. I couldn't even get into the "sci-fi"-ness of the book, because without the back story you feel as though the entire thing is...well...pointless.
The only "action", if you want to call it that, quickly degenerates into an internal monologue for the main character and more political postulating of intergalactic proportions.
I considered going back and trying to read the previous series, but I couldn't bring myself to waste the credits on the chance that it might be better than this book.
I like the series, the story line and characters as a whole, but the "by the living stars" and "honor of your ancestors" thing is pretty hokey... Couldn't come up with something more believable?
This is a great book in the continuing saga. New enemies emerge and the usual politics continue. Good listen for that road trip.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
i liked the first series, but i'm loving this one. too many questions and too many discoveries. Jack Camplbell did an awesome job with this book, and it looks like the next one and this whole series will be amazing.
