    "My new Favorite Author!!!"

    I cant say enough good things about this series. Wonderfully paced drama, great characters, truly amazing and entertaining space battles that don't get bogged down in the minutiae of technology.

    He takes all the best parts of Weber and Drake and combines it with the wonderful pacing and action of John Ringo.

    I do agree however, that this series MUST be read from book one.

    Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library.

    "Best Space Warfare Saga - Ever"

    The only problem with this series is - the later books are too short and it's too long between books.

    This book has a problem.
    There is a horribly prolonged exposition/recap, two chapters long, which not only breaks flow, but unstitches resolution which has already taken place with no explanation or reason. Maybe a couple of paragraphs of that is fresh.
    This is as painful as it is blatant.

    "A harrowing crawl to the finish line!"

    This book details what many never saw coming, an end to the retreat from syndic territory! As Geary and his fleet make their way to the very cusp of alliance space they are seemingly assaulted by every impediment imaginable as they are confronted by overwhelming enemy forces, internal sabotage, alien treachery, and, worst of all, dwindling resources! It all comes together in a climactic battle where the most mundane of threats could snatch victory from the fleet on the threshold of safety. A well-designed, riveting end to the chase!

    "Very Entertaining!!"

    This Series in very entertaining, the narration is very nicely done. A good listen with great space battles and good character development. I've listened to the complete series and the spin-offs and the time flew by. The humor in it is very well done as well. The story is not very deep, or philosophical, just great fun with likable characters. very enjoyable.

    "Excellent Finale"

    Well not really the finale as there is one more book in the series. This is an excellent read as has been the entire series. I would have to say that Christian Rummel is one of the best narrators that I have heard to date. Outstanding story equaled by a great performance!

    "More of the same, and thank goodness!"

    I was very pleased to see that the final two episodes in this series were available so we could wrap up the story of BlackJack Geary and tie up the loose ends.
    Except for the whiny, annoying, meddlesome Co-President Rionne, I enjoyed all the characters, but the battle scenes were what made it all worthwhile, especially since they take place in three dimensions. A guy's series, but a lot of fun, light reading.

    "Okay"

    Sci-Fi militaristic drama - easy drama, heavy military lingo and technology. Definitely interesting and fun to read. I don't feel inclined to rush into buying another in the series, just yet, but would definitely read another one.

    "A strikingly good series"

    This book sets the scene for a series which is remarkably good military science fiction. It is fairly obvious that the author has more than a passing acquaintance with military discipline. It is predicated on the notion of the revival of a former starship captain from a survival capsule against all the odds and much later in time. As a result of an atrocity, he finds himself in command of a fleet locked in deadly combat with a totalitarian enemy. As a consequence, he is nonplussed by the change in military culture which seriously tests him, while dealing with the civilian representative of allied governments proves to be a double-edged sword. He is confronted by internal dissension and an air of distrust. Being a legend brought back to life comes as quite a shock. He exhibits all the insecurity of a man out of time, whose past deeds have been used as propaganda and to a certain extent, embellished beyond belief. Anyone familiar with command will identify with some of the problems he faces but I do not intend to give anything more away.

    The characterization of Black Jack is well realized although some of the others do not have sufficient depth in my view. For example, very brief descriptions of some important actors leave the listener really wondering whether they are 7 feet tall or 5 feet tall and weighing 250 pounds. But the stories in this series knit together very well and the narration by Christian Rummel is, as usual, outstanding. For sheer enjoyment and with sufficient hooks in the storylines, this is a series to savor and listen to more than once.

    "Like Captian Geary, I don't know if I can finish.."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    So, the challenge I have with each new book is the overwhelming amount of time that is spent getting that 1 in 20,000 reader caught up with the first books. In book 5, the first two chapters are almost entirely spent on that 1 reader. That makes it very, very annoyning for the other 19,999 readers that dont want to hear the same thing for the 5th time..! Seriously, I don't know if I will make it home with the fleet. I'm almost certain not to. John Emry (sp..?) - aka the real authot is awesome and i could not hope to tell a story like him...but the re-hashing is making me punch out in a survival pod.


    What was most disappointing about Jack Campbell’s story?

    Spending chapter after chapter rehashing what 10's of thousands have read in the past 4 books. we dont need or want to be brought up to speed because - like any sane person - we read THE FIRST FOUR BOOKS....!!


    Did The Lost Fleet: Relentless inspire you to do anything?

    Stop reading it...
