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.

    "Entertaining"

    Well narrated. A little long in parts, but to be expected with an unabridged book. The series keeps you listening, but since they don't go book number sequence it makes it hard to find the next boook in the series. You have to find the release dates. A good listen!

    "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.

    "well written and well read"

    Ive enjoyed the series so far. The writer has a skill at introducing new threats on a believable way. If you listen to the books to close together they can feel a little repetitive with the same realizations seeming to happen again and again which gets a little tiresome. As an example I think Ive heard the conference room described in depth at least four times now. But it isnt done to such an extent that I didnt still enjoy the read. he is a good writer and the books are written clean which is something I appreciate. You can reccomend this to young readers without worrying about anything to graphic or immoral and I think the worst cussing has been Damn. A good clean book with fun Discoveries in every star system. Thanks to the Author for your work. well done.

    "It's a 'book 4'"

    This series is captivating in every way. Entertaining, mysterious, haunting, engaging. Perhaps I have simply binge listened to these books and that's why I feel like it's fly-over book in this series, but it felt like less than the others. Don't get me wrong, this is a 5-star book all the way, but I think that Ismaily because it's part of the greater series...

    Voice acting was flawless!
    Intrigue is peaked & I can't wait to read the rest of this series.
