    The first book of best-selling sci-fi author Jack Campbell’s new series Beyond the Frontier returns to find Captain John “Black Jack" Geary, the hero of the Lost Fleet series, awoken from cryogenic sleep to take command of the fleet. Geary’s legendary exploits have earned him the adoration of the people—and the enmity of politicians convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing.

    Story

    This is one of the best books I have listened to. Normally I just listen to fiction or semi-fiction books, but i bought this on a whim. After listening I was hooked and listened in 1 sitting. I then went and bought all the beyond the frontier series books and wish i would have started with the first lost fleet books. The narrator is one of the best which makes me unable to listen to many audio books.

    It’s survival of the fittest in a brutal war of extinction! Created in the gene labs as super soldiers, the Highborn decide to replace the obsolete Homo sapiens. They pirate the Doom Stars and capture the Sun Works Ring around Mercury. Now they rain asteroids, orbital fighters and nine-foot tall drop troops onto Earth in a relentless tide of conquest. Marten Kluge is on the receiving end. Hounded by Thought Police, he lives like an ant in a kilometer-deep city.

    Cons:
    While I give this book a 3.5 I would highly suggest getting it! The series overall is an easy 4 or maybe a 5 (on the last 2 hours of book 6). The problem with this book is the story seems hopeless and there are quite possibly too many characters and a lot going on. Eventually towards the middle of the book and in all the others it focuses mostly on the main character.

    Pros:
    The narrator does a decent job in this book, as I've seen much worse, but he becomes top notch in book 2 and only gets better. You can tell every character apart without a problem; even the ones that don't talk much. This book as well as all others don't take much time getting into the action. The story isn't predictable and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the hell the main character and humanity go through. It has quite a bit of strategy (which i like the most) and more action and space battles than any book I've read.

    If your into science fiction, space battles, and hand to hand combat; I would highly suggest getting this book and the rest of the series. I rank it up there with the star force and lost fleet series (so readers know where i stand), but the books are quite dissimilar. It is much closer to the star force series, but in a much crueler world where genetic superiors claim themselves as the rulers.
