Publisher's Summary

Outnumbered by the superior forces and firepower of the Syndicate Worlds, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous retreat across the enemy star system. Led by the legendary Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, the Alliance is desperately trying to return home with its captured prize: the key to the Syndic hypernet, and the key to victory.

Geary is convinced that the Syndics are planning to ambush the fleet and finish it off once and for all. Realizing the fleet's best (and only) chance is to do the unexpected, Geary takes the offensive and orders the fleet to the Sancere system. There, a multitude of possible routes home give the Alliance fleet a better chance of avoiding their pursuers - and an attack on the Sancere shipbuilding facilities could decimate the Syndic war effort.

Weary from endless combat, the officers and crew of the Alliance fleet can't see the sense in charging deeper into enemy territory - prompting a mutiny that divides them and leaves Geary with higher odds against him than ever before.

BONUS AUDIO: Author Jack Campbell describes how he brought real-world physics to the Lost Fleet series.

    "Repetitive"
    Would you try another book from Jack Campbell and/or Christian Rummel and Jack Campbell ?

    I've listened to three of the books in the "Lost Fleet" series and though it was an interesting series to begin with, by the third book I've become pretty bored hearing the same reminders about time lags over and over and over. I've even read one of the second Lost Fleet series, but it's pretty much the same as the first. Same battles, same story lines, same boring reminders about time lag.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jack Campbell? Why or why not?

    I might listen to another sometime, but for now I can't even remember what book I'm reading because they are all starting to sound the same.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance is very good. The narrator even seems to sound interested in what he's reading. I would definitely listen to his reading again.


    Do you think The Lost Fleet: Fearless needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No! I think the whole series could have been much shorter if the repetitions were omitted. It's not just the repetition in the time lag, it's repetitive in describing the enemy of the moment, it's repetitive in the battle scenes. After a while you just don't care anymore.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been reading Science Fiction for about 50 years now, and I always go into a new tale with optimism. I can forgive a lot of "shark jumping" but I can't forgive an author for treating me like an idiot. I don't need to be reminded over and over again about the same thing. Make a point then move on.

    "A MUST LISTEN!"

    It seems that I'm gonna have to repeat myself for all the books in this saga. GREAT! Not a dull moment. Narration can made a book great or ruin it. The books have Great Narration!

    "Very Flat"

    The story is moving so slooowly. After 2 books I really have to throw in the towel. The story is flat and repetitive, the characters are even flatter.

    "Great book!"

    This book surprised me by how it drew me into the action. I came across this book by chance, not quite knowing what to spend my credit on next. The story is very engaging and portrays the scope of the battles really well. I would like to know a little more about the history leading upto the books, how the syndics and the alliance formed but that may become more apparent as I get further into the books.

    I'm very pleased with my random choice of audio book!

    "The Lost Fleet: Fearless"

    This is my firs Jack Campbell and I enjoyed it. The linking of light speed reality made me think and made me get a feel for what he has to deal with in space.

    "Great Series"

    I listen in my car while going to and from work. I found myself eagerly anticipating the one hour one way drives. These are great books and I can't wait for the next one.

    "great military SF series"

    I love this series. I was listening to this book, and got so agitated about waiting to hear the end that I went out and bought the paperback to read it, then went back and still listened to it. :) This series has a epic quality of honor and pride in oneself and - in this case - the fleet, that I loved. Also, the narrator really brings the characters to life. I can't read the books now without hearing the voices speaking the lines. Highly recommend the entire series.

    "Aaah the Strawberrys"

    I really like it. It has an almost TNG feel to it. Emphasis on SciFi realism.

    Conference near end of book was very dramatic. I will be moving on to book 3.

    "Battle on...."

    I picked this novel based on customer feedback, I bought the first two books in fact. I can see how the story would just go on and on. I found the books monotonous after a while with the extremely in depth descriptons of the battles taking up much of the story. Seeing how the story never seems to end I doubt I will continue with the series.
    Narration was quite good however.
