I love these books, I have read all 9 of them and want more.
If you have not read them all go back and start at the beginning, you will be very glad you did. I promise!
He is one of the best narrators of all the books I have read!
A good way to get through the work day.
Another great addition to the series. I honestly wish this book was longer because I didn't lose interest for second.
As usual the author does a great job of building a story with twists and turns that will continue to throw you for a loop. He also leaves enough questions to have you begging for me of the story.
The narrator continues to bring extra life to the characters as he's done in the past books with great range and consistency. Was so sad to see this book end. Now comes the torture of waiting for the next book.
Its easy to assume that on the third book of a series that is a spin off of another series one might have lost their creativity - new and interesting challenges for the characters might be hard to come by. Not so. John G. Hemry (aka Jack Campbell) takes us on a great chapter journeying where in so many ways, Humanity has never been before. Picking up where the last Beyond the Frontier Book left off - Invincible - this story ends with almost endless options for where Black Jack and the fleet will go from there. This book doesn't make a lot of sense without reading the previous two Beyond the Frontier books, Dreadnaught and Invincible but I would suggest going back even further to the Lost Fleet series, before I'd start with the Beyond the Frontier books. Great narration - wonderfully written - with an authentic feel to the tactics, physics and political environment that all the books in these two series have been known for. Enjoy!
Inostrancevia - the uber Gorgonopsian.
Yes. Jack Campbell keeps pumping out terrific stories and Christian Rummel keeps pace with skillful narration. A great team.
Black Jack Geary. Where to begin? He is master of his fleet. Meanwhile, I can totally picture his frustrated face and air of resignation as he yet again is thrust into the the middle of greatest catfight in the galaxy. This battle between two strong willed, intelligent, and feisty rockets has been raging throughout the star system. Respect is due for Black Jack Geary as he steadfastly tries with every ounce of his being to keep them from ripping each other's eyes out.
He can throw out a dozen distinctive character voices with ease. Rummel knows these characters and they are brought to life through him.
Yes. When the chief intelligence officer aboard Dauntless first gazed into the face of the green haired lieutenant from another fleet ship. I could almost taste the insta-lust.
I cannot wait for the next book. I can sense the inevitability of the scene we (or at Ieast I) have been waiting for - the sweaty, toe curling, scratches on your back, wash the sheets twice the next day, interstellar threesome. I know Black Jack is up to this challenge.
Book one introduce many new characters. Book two was a spin-off and shouldn't really be called book two. Book three is a very well executed continuation of Book one.
The first book of the series was a great listen, the performance has been amazing for the first three books. The story became very repetitive after the first with the only saving grace being the performance of the narrator.
That said there must have been something in the story which kept me through 3 of the series. The books themselves feel to be a drawn out screen play pieced together rather that a story.
I don't remember the last books being this deliberately paced. Every period had a beat and a half to two beats between sentence end and start. I don't remember the previous books having this problem. Because of it, though, I found it hard to listen to. I was either falling asleep or my mind was wandering between sentences. Were they just trying to make sure it was around the 7 hour mark?
I spend about 2 1/2 hrs a day commuting to work, so I have a good amount of Audible time. I love sci-fi, post apocalypse, and zombie books.
Really good one. Excited they finally go to "old" Earth!!! Have listened to the series a number of times and they just get better and better. Narration is OUTSTANDING!! ...as usual
