Publisher's Summary

Admiral Geary’s First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary’s mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire—an empire that is on the brink of collapse.

To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet’s journey back grueling and perilous.

And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers’ representatives safely unharmed, the Syndics’ attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance’s destruction...

What the Critics Say

"Rummel's performance is so entertaining that he makes listeners want to hear how he'll perform the story. He populates the international starfleet military with a multitude of accents. While his female characters tend to sound alike, his men growl and swagger through space with brio." (AudioFile)

    "Interferes with my day"

    This narrator brings the characters to life, consistent from story to story. Once I start one of these books I end up wanting to listen to it until it is done. Distracted by seeing Black Jack and Tanya wiggle past another puzzle, I neglect my surrounding. Great story telling, occasional pithy humor, comments on. the human condition, Are there more?

    "Another excellent episode of the lost fleet Series"

    Black Jack and Tanya carry on the adventure. I love Christian Rumbles performances. Never a dull moment as the Lost Fleet explorers new areas of space and returns to the oldest human area of space exploration.

    "Great performance lack luster story"

    The first book of the series was a great listen, the performance has been amazing for the first three books. The story became very repetitive after the first with the only saving grace being the performance of the narrator.

    That said there must have been something in the story which kept me through 3 of the series. The books themselves feel to be a drawn out screen play pieced together rather that a story.

    "Excellent Story, but Pace was Maddening"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't remember the last books being this deliberately paced. Every period had a beat and a half to two beats between sentence end and start. I don't remember the previous books having this problem. Because of it, though, I found it hard to listen to. I was either falling asleep or my mind was wandering between sentences. Were they just trying to make sure it was around the 7 hour mark?

    I spend about 2 1/2 hrs a day commuting to work, so I have a good amount of Audible time. I love sci-fi, post apocalypse, and zombie books.
