Publisher's Summary

For over six years, the Lost Fleets have been trapped in the Triangulum Galaxy. Every day has been filled full of danger as the galaxy conquering Simulins search relentlessly for them.

With the arrival of the Distant Horizon, a daring plan is made. A message drone will be sent back home to give them warning of the deadly danger the Lost Fleets are facing. A danger that will soon boil over into the home galaxy as well.

In the heart of a massive star cluster, Admiral Jeremy Strong learns the Simulins' greatest secret. A secret that is so dangerous it could mean the end of all civilized life.

Back home Admiral Race Tolsen waits for a Simulin attack. An attack that the politicians in the Human Federation of Worlds don't believe will ever come. But Race knows better, all the evidence points to an imminent invasion. An invasion he doesn't have the forces to stop. He will need a miracle, but miracles sometimes are hard to come by.

    "Big ideas continue"

    Another entertaining addition to the ongoing story with fantastic reading, and fine writing. The battles were exciting as well as the sense of building, improving, and character lives continued in the backdrop of the dangers.

    Usual gripe, the wait to use the human-AIs as the last resort remains, but by this many books in the series I should just shut up and accept that's the way it is going to be. It might be a military sci-fi genre thing, its about human lives lost as the price of war, the use of fighters instead of drones.

    I am curious if any more human-AIs will ever be made. In Alien Contact, 6 were mentioned, but the other 4 were never heard of, so I presumed never made, but were in planning. Now centuries later, isn't it about time to add to the effective population of 2 of the human-AIs, especially since more alien AIs, who themselves admitted they are inferior, are increasing their populations. Oh and here might be a twist, a Careth-AI.

    Love the expansive ideas, as much as I gripe about AIs, Mr. Weil continues to mix in concepts that make his stories different than the usual stock and trade space fleet sagas, orbital habitats in the earlier series to escalating with megastructures here as well as touch on theories of hyperspace travel and dark matter. Its a geek's pleasure to read.

    Looking forward to the next book.

    Story
    "Exciting listen for sci fi lovers"
    What made the experience of listening to The Lost Fleet: Into the Darkness the most enjoyable?

    The voices of the narrator are fantastic. I have read the books too but it's so much better with the narrator. He's so good.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Fleet: Into the Darkness to and why?

    I'd compare it to the frontiers saga since they are going out into space fighting aliens trying to kill them.


    What does Liam Owen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Exciting narration. I've heard lots of different narrators and they have a hard time doing female voices which this one doesnt.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few times I laughed and others I got the cold chills.


    Any additional comments?

    I had to buy the next book on my kindle since it's not on audible yet. It was only released two days ago.

    Story
    "Another Good Book in the Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lost Fleet: Into the Darkness to be better than the print version?

    Yes, because Liam Owen creats the right tempo and I would not want another person narrating this storey, he feels as if he is/was there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way it has split from the main storey and is heading at pace into another storeyline intead of dragging the main storey to it's death.


    What does Liam Owen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Liam keeps the fire alight and burning hot in anticipation, where as I don't get that when reading, Liam Owen fits this storey line like Stefan Rudniki Fits Ben Bova's books, they are just not the same when narrated by anyone else "If it aint broke don't fix it" so to speak.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither, I just feel emotion when friends lose friends and colleagues on a ship destroyed.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes please keep the new books coming, the waiting is killing me.
