Publisher's Summary

Book 1: Albion Lost:

For centuries, the Daegon waited. They plotted. And now they are ready to strike.

The core worlds of settled space enjoy a tenuous peace, unaware and ill prepared for the threat building beyond the furthest reaches of humanity. The star kingdom of Albion stands as a shining light of justice and mercy in a harsh galaxy, and they will be the first to suffer the Daegon's fury.

Defying his low born status, and despite his self-doubt, Commodore Thomas Gage has risen through the ranks by sheer grit and determination, defending Albion from brutal pirate clans. And when the onslaught comes, Gage and his fleet may be Albion's last hope for freedom.

Book 2: The Long March:

Albion burns beneath Daegon rule.

Commodore Thomas Gage and his fleet, safeguarding the last of the Albion Royal Family, are on the run. Hunting them, a ruthless Daegon commander will stop at nothing to crush Albion's only remaining free force.

To find sanctuary beyond their enemy's reach, the battle-damaged fleet must cut through a hostile and dangerous region of space known as the Kigeli Nebula. But to secure passage, Gage must strike a deal with an old enemy who wants nothing more than to fulfill a vendetta and see the commodore dead.

Facing threats ahead, behind and from within, Gage must lead his fleet down the long march to freedom.

Exiled Fleet is a new military science-fiction series for fans of Honor Harrington, Earth Alone, and Old Man's War from the author of the best-selling Ember War Saga.

Another excellent series from Fox

I loved the Emberverse, and to be honest, was a little hesitant to jump into a completely new universe, but The Exiled Fleet is fantastic.

Excellent universe, completely different, but completely entertaining. Great characters and a story that's easy to get lost in.

Awesome read!

Very good series ... so far

I was prepared to find out that this was of less interest than Richard Fox's other excellent novels due to the decision to package both books 1&2 as a single offering. I'm please to state that, on the contrary, it was a very good set of books. Even though most of the battle sections were in space, something I enjoy less than ground encounters, I was surprise to find that these space encounters were really quite exciting.

A lot of what makes this series enjoyable is how Fox set up a perfect storm of events that allowed a lowly class officer to end up commanding what remains of Albion's space fleet. This, along with class of characters that supported the story. There's snooty royals, advanced armored mercenaries, an impossibly advance invasion force of unknown human origin, mimics and, of course, PIRATES!

Get this book combination, you'll not be disappointed.

Just couldn't get into it . . .

This is another branch of the Ember War Saga universe, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I just couldn't get into this, though, and I finally gave up about a third of the way in. Kinda boring and stale. Sorry . . .

Magnificent in every way.

First of all, Mark Boyett is one of the best narrators on audible. Simply fantastic.

The book itself was very good, not cheesy, not predictable. It was a delight, and was very addictive. I hated to stop listening to it. Well done!

WOW, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! WELL WRITTEN & PERFORMED.

Kept me awake right through the night. Great action and strong protagonist. The enemy, the Daegon is brutal and cruel. Commodore Thomas Gage, the protagonist had to run with his remaining fleet to save the last member of the royal family from the Daegons who are hunting them. Very well written sci/space opera. I am glad I gave this a try. I am new to to the author, Richard Fox. I like his style of writing. Mark Boyett did an excellent performance on all the different characters. Well worth a credit. I am looking forward to the next book.

Great Space Opera

Thoroughly enjoyable and engrossing tale combining elements of Star Wars Episode IV, The Hidden Fortress, Space Cruiser Yamato and other sagas but with a very unique and original storyline. Can't wait for the next chapter in this awesome yarn.

At times it is slow, even to almost turn off time.

I found that at times it was just background noise during the long slow times. The performance was good. The story was OK but not to the extent of wanting not to put the book down. Not sure if the 3rd book will improve but will give it a try.

Has all the ingredients, just not baked very well

This story had some great pieces to it. Some great characters and an interesting if not slightly convoluted story line. But with all the potential, it missed the mark in my opinion.

The enemies are classic stupid enemies falling for every device imaginable, and the hero is a typical hero with little originality to the twist and turns. Apart from one nice scene when a fighter crashes into the side of the enemy ship, the battles felt formulaic and run of the mill in the extreme. No excitement or emotional involvement for the reader at all.

It is like a lovely looking cake that is dry and flavourless with every disappointing mouthful. On a few occasions I was actually bored listening to this, and only persevered because of the previous good reviews and a great narrator.

It is a shame because there are elements which were great, like the AI armour, which I wish had been explored more. A really interesting concept that I wanted to know more about.

The narrator was brilliant. The voices and pacing were excellent and without such good narration I probably would have abandoned this book. Mark Boyett is a star!

Great set of books.

Started off a little slow, made me think I had made a mistake. However, I’m glad I stayed with it. An absolute corker. Can’t wait for next in the series.
