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.

    "I surprised myself on how much I liked these books"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I hadn't planned on listening to the whole series, but I'm on book 5 now, so I guess I'm really enjoying these. The books are not complicated but you learn to like the personalities and the "how's he going to get out of this?" aspect that keeps you coming back for more. Try the first book and see where it takes you...

    "A nice scf-fi book remenicent of Macross"
    What made the experience of listening to The Lost Fleet: Fearless the most enjoyable?

    The thougthfulness of the encounters, you could tell the author had a good understanding of tactics and the political nature of military command. While I never got the sense that anyone could be expendable at any time, I did get an earnestness form the characters.


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

    This is my first book with this pair and it won't be my last!

    "Action"

    Action. Action. Action. Action.
    Very thin characters. Minor character development for main character.
    Action. Action. Action. Action.

    Did I mention Action? I mostly enjoyed the book, but afterwards felt like I had been snacking on empty calories.

    Story
    "Well done military based sci-fi series"

    Hemry (pen name Campbell) does a pretty good job of capturing the feel of being onboard a ship. He accurately portrays the characters interactions, their banter, the military jargon, etc (jokes about the crappy food for example). He has also chosen to make this slightly more believable by using real physics when in real space (versus "hyperspace"). This means that the speed of light dominates and affects every decision in the batte scenes.

    He has a tendency to over-use the same turns of phrase and descriptions, and some of his characterizations are a little cliched and corny. Some of his passages are bit too wooden and don't flow like you'd want them to.

    Rummel does an outstanding job of creating voices for all the major characters that are consistent from book to book and make following who is saying what very easy. He does women's voices surprisingly well, so as you listen, you don't feel like the dialog between men and women is between straight men and a large collection of drag queens.

    Overall, a great listen and very enjoyable. If you are a fan of of the genre (military sci-fi) you'll enjoy these books.

    "Predictably good"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Good narration


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Advances the story


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    A greater mix of new and old would energize the tale even more


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Make the edges sharper - the highs and lows more intense


    Do you have any additional comments?

    A fine satisfying listen

    Story
    "More Grand Space Opera"

    If you like hard (okay, maybe just a little squishy) science fiction with a huge dose of drama and solid, if not overly deep, characters, Jack Campbell is an author to keep on your list. I've listened to the whole Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier series', and there wasn't a slow or disappointing book in the bunch.

    It's all about politics and space combat, and a clash of cultures that could ultimately save humanity.

    My only complaint (and it's really petty), is that by naming the books after random ships it's a little hard to keep track of what order they come in. I needed a cheat sheet that I kept on a memo in my Blackberry so I knew in what order to listen.

    I said it was petty.

    Great narration by Christian Rummel. For space opera and science fiction fans these are a great listen.

    "Not as good as the first book"

    This one is not as good as the first book in the series. A lot of time is spent on self doubt and preaching from annoying characters. Kind of like the really boring episodes of Star Trek.

    "HARD TO REMEMBER IT TAKES PLACE IN SPACE"

    In his second book Rummell continues to give a voice to Jack Campbell's Captain John "Black Jack" Geary. After listening to the first two books I can't imagine any other voice as Cpt. Geary.

    Jack Campbell writes the story so well from the military standpoint that it is difficult to remember it takes place in space until the space technical parts come up. I think that Campbell has captured the way a person can lose himself and his handle on reality when being a Prisoner of War. I started out hating Cpt. Falco and ended feeling compassion for someone who's mind was so broken.

    The three Captains who, in the end, would not accept that they did anything wrong by their Mutiny remind me of so many people who are deliberately delussional. Clueless is what I would call them and unfortunately in real life there are way too many of that kind in positions of authority!

    I found the scene where Cpt. Geary almost gave in to his anger and have those three Captain's face a firing squad to be very compelling. I think all of us have the same kinds of feelings at different times in our lives.

    Can't wait to listen to the next book! Great job Jack Campbell!!!!

    "The lost fleet"
    Where does The Lost Fleet: Fearless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The lost fleet ranks among one of the top SF series to which I have listened. I recommend it highly. It has plenty of action and complex relationships among the main characters.
