    Story
    "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...

    "STILL GOOD.!"

    The plot is very good. The intrigues and sabotages are still going on but Captain John Geary and his allies are beating them. They are slowly getting back back to their homeland with lots of sacrifices along the way. A very well written series and well performed by Christian Rummel..

    "Wonderful light entertainment"

    Thoroughly engaging sci-fi fun! A strong emphasis on well thought out space battles reflecting the author's intimate knowledge of naval fleet action. Nice pluses include subtle satirical put downs of politicians and corporate culture.

    "Getting better each book in series"

    I have really enjoyed the series. Each book is getting better than the last. I just bought the last book to enjoy, bittersweet that the story will be over soon.

    I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.

    Story
    "Home!"

    It's been a long journey home for Black Jack and the Alliance fleet. This is my favorite book in the series so far. Relentless is filled with more than just ship battles. There's a ton of political maneuvering by factions within the fleet. Betrayal, heartbreak, and more are in the book. If you were starting to feel a little worn out by this series, Relentless is a huge shot in the arm. As the fleet nears home, the Syndics prepare for a last stand. The fleet faces it's toughest challenge yet as the internal strife comes to a head, and fleet supplies dwindle.

    My favorite parts of the book are easily the fleet conferences. Usually they're boring and standard meetings, but in Relentless, they really get into a lot of the motivations of different characters. That along with the marine operations, really shine in this book.

    The fleet actions are standard fare along the lines of the last few books, exciting, but nothing we haven't heard before.

    I will say, Christian Rummel was either off point, or the studio it was recorded in got some new equipment because the mix was different than books 1-4. He also pronounced some words differently which takes some of the immersion in the story out. It's still a great book and a MUST read if you're into the series.

    "Very suspenseful!"

    The tension continues to build, and it's hard not to keep listening for just a little bit longer, which turns into hours later. Good plot twists and new character developments keep the story interesting.

    "Captain Geary is still hard at it."
    Any additional comments?

    After listening to the first four books in this series back to back I decided to take a break from it for a while. I am glad I did. It felt like coming back to old friends.

    This book, like the first four, does the same things right (ie. space ship battles, military leadership decisions, navel sentiments ect.) and the same things wrong (mainly the mind numbing, melodramatic love triangle garbage).

    Anyone deciding on whether or not to purchase this audio book has surely listened to its predecessors at this point and will be pleased to know that while the story doesn't end here there are a lot of things resolved in this installment.

    Good day to you.

    Story
    "Nearly done!"

    I admit, I was anticipating some "relentless" puns as part of this review but over the course of Valiant and Relentless the story has taken a dramatic turn for the better. I still have my quibbles but at least we're not recycling the same story over and over again like the first three books.

    I'm still feeling that this series would have been a lot better off as maybe a duology/trilogy because a lot of time and effort goes into recaps and a lot of scenes feel forced as explanations are replayed for the umpteenth time (when chapter two kicked off yet another marveling rendition of the conference room technology I think I may have audibly sighed). Same deal with things that should just be extra descriptive detail on the characters, in chapter four there's a scene where "Geary never expected to be able to joke about his past being so long ago" which is fine, except he also felt that late in book four too.

    I'm still not thrilled about the technology and effort that's gone into explaining it, the path toward technobabble that was tentatively blazed by Valiant's "self-sustaining probability modulation on a quantum scale" has not been followed thankfully but I'd still like to know more about the shielding and inertial dampening, the Hypernet gates too actually although that's obviously less likely to be possible!

    I don't think a lot more is going on with characters here either, right up front in chapter one there's an abruptly personal argument between Geary and Desjani that I guess was borne of events from Valiant...somehow, it really didn't gel with the closing chapters of Valiant and the conclusions that those two came to. Rione and Desjani are still refusing to talk to each other, which really is quite annoying.

    All in all, it's a story with a set of familiar characters that (perhaps a little too neatly) ties up all the previous sub-plots bar one, which I assume will be the focus of Victorious. I'm looking forward to finishing that book, at which point I'm going to declare myself done - regardless of how it ends. If you enjoyed all the previous books, you'll definitely enjoy this one, and the inverse also applies.
