Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013

Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet - and himself - in harm's way.

An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems - only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring all of the First Fleet's attempts to communicate peaceful intentions, this system's species sends its ships into battle on suicide runs while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power.

Now, with a faction of his officers determined to eliminate this new threat at any cost, Geary must figure out how to breach the enemy's defenses so the fleet can reach the jump point without massive casualties - even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side.

BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Jack Campbell.

Another great book in the series!

What did you like best about this story?

This series is great in its realistic depiction of tactics and movement in space and that really brings the story to life for me. Add in the political intrigue and realistic characters and that adds up to a series that I've recommended a number of times to friends, and this book in the series doesn't disappoint.

What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

As always, the reader did a wonderful job on this. The reason I didn't give it five stars however was due to editing. A few times there's an odd distortion before it kicks back to regular. Not enough to really detract from the story, but it is noticeable.

Disappointment

Would you try another book from Jack Campbell and/or Christian Rummel?

Yes

Would you ever listen to anything by Jack Campbell again?

Yes

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

Black Jack

Did Invincible: The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 inspire you to do anything?

NO

Any additional comments?

Not up to the par of previous books. Seemed like he was just going through the motions with this one. That stinks because I enjoyed the other books! Hopefully his next one in this series will be better.

Foreshadowing galore

An other amazing book in this series. A lot of events later in the book where foreshadowed in previous books or in the same book. Even the title name is a foreshadow. Add to that Mr. Hemry's non-magical ship battles and aliens that are as strange as humorous and you get another good book. Well worth the 1 credit (or the full price) and well worth the time to listen to it. Only small problem is Rummel's sometimes confusing minor character accent change... but even that is a small problem compared to the wonderful experience that is this second book of the Beyond the Frontier series.

Good except the main character voice

The narrator is good, except for the main character's voice. I don't like his Jack Geary voice, but he differentiates all the other characters well with a variety of voices and accents

If don't want in-depth sci-fi

Its a story you don't have listen to intently, basic time filler while driving. Character interactions are choppy and the narration reminds me of storytime with a substitute.

Incredible! Haha. The voice acting is great!

Voice acting was amazing. Many characters with multiple genders I believe are hard to do. Book was very well written and I was quite impressed. Listened to it non stop.
