Publisher's Summary

Admiral Geary’s First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary’s mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire—an empire that is on the brink of collapse.

To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet’s journey back grueling and perilous.

And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers’ representatives safely unharmed, the Syndics’ attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance’s destruction...

What the Critics Say

"Rummel's performance is so entertaining that he makes listeners want to hear how he'll perform the story. He populates the international starfleet military with a multitude of accents. While his female characters tend to sound alike, his men growl and swagger through space with brio." (AudioFile)

    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.

    "I really like this series"

    If you enjoyed the previous books, you will probably enjoy this one also. I've been listening to about 1 Lost Fleet book per month; it's going be tough waiting for the next installment to be written when I get through what is currently available.

    "Good book needs more action and less politics"

    This book has great space battles but also lots of political content. It's a good story that grabs your attention quickly but at times it struggles to keep your attention due to long political battles

    Falls in line with the rest of the series. Hard to put down once I started to read. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next.

    Story
    "Black Jack's endless Saga Continues"

    First of all I like the series, This is a fast paced action packed novel . It is well worth the price and the time it takes to listen to the book.
    The only 2 small downside I can see is that the book, does get a bit repetitive with every new star they have another deadly fight with the Syndics and the fleet pounding the Syndic CEO … The sexual tension is getting a little too thick, find a peaceful star system, let Gerry’s have a night or two together alone. That Is my suggestion. It will make the story flow better.
    Narration Excelent as all ways

    "good yarn continues"
    If you could sum up Guardian in three words, what would they be?

    electric yet predictable


    Have you listened to any of Christian Rummel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    very good as usual


    Any additional comments?

    overall I think the books are quite good, but I would class them as good for most readers but some will find the repetitive themes boring, younger readers will love them ( my 20yr olds love them)
