Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013
Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet - and himself - in harm's way.
An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems - only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring all of the First Fleet's attempts to communicate peaceful intentions, this system's species sends its ships into battle on suicide runs while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power.
Now, with a faction of his officers determined to eliminate this new threat at any cost, Geary must figure out how to breach the enemy's defenses so the fleet can reach the jump point without massive casualties - even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Jack Campbell.

Pretty high, but I love this series. I eagerly await each new book.
Switching to the view point of the syndicate worlds was a great angle for this book
Great as usual. I love the his voice and he performs so solidly.
Get this book if you love scifi but also if you like a well though out story. I love the Lost Fleet series.
Not sure haven't read the print
Forever War - The take on time for space travel
The voice sounded like a sterotypical superhero, just a little over the top, but I'll buy the next one anyways.
I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!
As the author describes before the book actually starts, this book was written with a vast knowledge of battle formations and tactics. Therefore, the engagements were described in such detail that I could see them unfolding in my mind's eye. I enjoyed listening to the officers' thinking as to what the enemy might have been plotting and what their next move should be to retaliate. There were several subplots besides the battle scenes and the story was very exciting, but I think I would have enjoyed the book more if there had been just slightly less battle engagement and a little bit more character development and subplotting.
The narrator's voice is great, especially when he lowers it to be Jack Geary. So sexy!
from the beginning when john "Black Jack" Geary first woke up, i fell in love with his story. the fortitude and unexpected genus of both the author and his characters brought life and motion to the narrative.
The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 was well written, doing great credit to its genre that enhanced my expectation with unforeseen twist and turn during the main plot. there were also some laughs and unexpected moment that kept you at the edge of your seat... the way the author solve the situations has they arose was both believable and exciting
Yes, I drive light trucks everyday so audio is perfect for me!
I love the interplay between BlackJack, Djahni, Rioan!
He has the characters nailed! I wish someone would help him with CinC ONI. It's CinC (Sink) ONI. Two words, not Italian "Chinconi". Commander in Chief. Drives me nuts as a military vet!
Yes, it was hard to break it up for a five day drive.
I really like this series and I really love the characters. I can see Dan Craig as the high end Black Jack, Ben Browder, or Nick Fallon in a pinch! Halle Barrie, Jennifer-Lopez or Gabrielle Union as Capt. Djhani, and Rioan played by Selma Hyack! It would be good and The action sequences would be great to see on the big screen. I thought the author wanted to end the series, but I for one am glad he hasn't! I say, "Take your time and write it the way you want it to be!" I am looking forward to getting back to Alliance space and dealing with the twists and turns of outwitting the politicos at there own game! I say let them take each other out! Thank You!
I enjoyed the first book but with the second one, I kept waiting for something to happen. It just seemed like it was a bridge to try and get to a third book.
Not sure. At this point, unlikely I will try a third but will have to see how it is received.
Yes. It's a good series though sometimes its just more of the same (but the "same" has npbeen good enough for me to consume them all). This one was head and shoulders above the rest.
Great division in both voices and character styles. They really sound great and never get muddied with other characters.
I can't wait for the next one.
The story is awesome and Christian Rummel does so many different voices! He is the best narrator yet!
Yes, I would listen to it many times. It pulls on my imagination as the story is told.
He very good. I like the way he reads the story.
There may be some repetition of the stories but over all I enjoy the stories and want the next book to be written quickly to see how the fleet will handle the problems they face. Great job.
This is an entertaining series with good characters, space battles, and lots of action. Sometimes these space opera type series get too bogged down with political intrigue, etc. but the author strikes an excellent balance that keeps the story moving along. I read a great deal of serious material for work and appreciate being able to escape with some light listening that still doesn't insult my intelligence. Worth the credit for all the books in the series.
