Publisher's Summary

Deep within Syndicate Worlds' space, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous journey home under the command of Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who was revived after a century spent in suspended animation. Geary's victories over the enemy have earned him both the respect and the envy of his fellow officers.

Geary has made many risky decisions as commander, especially in ordering the Alliance fleet back to the Lakota Star System, where it was nearly destroyed by the Syndics. It's a desperate gamble that may buy Geary just enough time to prepare for the Syndics' inevitable return, and give the fleet a fighting chance at survival.

But even as he struggles to stay one step ahead of the enemy, Geary must face conspirators within his own fleet who want a change of command and are willing to do anything to bring it about. Geary knows that his fleet must stand together or the Syndic forces will tear them apart.

BONUS AUDIO: Author Jack Campbell explains why he sees Valiant as the latest in a long tradition of "sea stories".

Get Lost! Listen to the rest of the Lost Fleet series.

    "Science fiction fast food"

    This is the first book that I've listened from the fleet series and I was surprised of how entertaining it was. Solid scifi story with politics and romance added to the mix. The battle scenes are well chronicled and fast pace - I have not encountered this type of narrative before. Strongly recommend it if you prefer novels that deal with space battles.

    "no surprises"

    this pretty straight forward story ... no surprises ... thin development of everything but space battleship tactics.

    If you have liked the other Campbell stories .. you will like this one. If You have never read one of these not much to them.

    "Great books but repetitive."

    Overall I like the series and I'm looking forward to the next book, but frankly the repetitions are getting annoying.

    "Getting better"

    It's starting to become interesting. Not yet compelling, but nicely interesting. The politician is where she should be. She is very annoying. The captain I hope will not get too soap opera like.

    "A future well rendered"

    To enjoy the fourth book in a series is saying something. It has not run its' course yet for me. Part of the pleasure of listening to this series is imagining each planetary system and then overlaying the fleet tactics. I also enjoy speculating on the progress of technology and the cultural changes, and constants, humans would experience along the way, and Jack Campbell does a fantastic job on both counts. Wrapped up in exciting action makes the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend keeping your hands occupied with yardwork or housecleaning while listening; you'll burn a few calories with The Lost Fleet series.

    "They do exist!"
    Where does The Lost Fleet: Valiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high. I really enjoy this series and Valiant is the most satisfying (to me) out of the books so far.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Fleet: Valiant to and why?

    i honestly don't know. the first one that comes to mind is Mass Effect: Ascension. It caught me off guard and was different from the other books so far in the series. It didn't have a whole lot of action, but the discussions that were talked about answered a lot of questions I had in the series so far.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favorite?

    He does a spot on Victoria Rione! her character is cold hearted, ruthless and blunt. Christian delivers with every quote from her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I only listen about 1/2 - 1 hour at a time. I typically listen to it in the car. So No, i like it better in spurts.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILERS: Great book. you learn a lot about the Aliens that lurk beyond the Syndicit worlds. It wasn't as action packed as previous books. but a lot of things were talked about that really moved the story forward and i thoroughly enjoyed that!
    Great book!

    "Deity worship in a space adventure...?!"

    while hoping for a great space adventure...and then hearing all the Deity praise &worship throughout the story was extremely irritating....chewed nuts and bolts painfully..to get through it....
