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.

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!
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.
The second book in Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series builds upon the story set in the first. "Fearless" is definitely a step or two better than "Dauntless" was. The story grows and becomes a bit more complex in this installment, although it is still quite linear in that it follows only one character's viewpoint through it all.
This is straight military sci fi, and I enjoy hearing and considering all the tactics used. Some of the elements could be a bit more interesting, and more character dynamics could also lend a hand, but it was still an entertaining listen. I think would like to get around to reading or listening to the whole series at some point. It is clear that these guys won't make it home until the series is done.
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!
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.
I am an artist and I love to listen to books while I work. Books have always been an important part of my life. Audible Rocks!
This series is wonderful. I can't wait for the next one.
The battles in 3 dimentions are described so that I can see it all in my head. High recomendations!
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.
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.
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.
