One of the best series to read or listen to.

I got the 2nd book of this series by sheer accident, then went back to read the first one and on so now I’m getting the last one. It is one of the best stories I’ve ever read. The characters, their humanity, their flaws and their brave resignation to do what must be done are real, inspiring and heartbreaking. Their struggles and moments of happiness are so well described that it feels as if I’m reading an account of real events.

Finally some change!

After reading relentless, it's rejuvenated the spark in the series. I feel like it was dragging on a little and while I love all the space battles, the series needed a different direction, and making it back to alliance space was a good one!

Great book

You can really tell the author has actual military experience and the way he takes in actual physics in his battles instead of ignoring them like so many space novels is something that I enjoy.

A Phenomenal Conclusion to a Great Story (TBC)

I have long awaited hearing the conclusion of Captain John Geary's adventure, fighting his way back to Alliance space. Although the end is eclipsed by everything that has let up to it, the author does not disappoint with a good resolution and the narrator continues to be immaculate in his delivery. Love these books.

Not your typical Space Opera

The story has its faults At times it trudges along, the slights directed at the authors editors are very obvious and seem forced, and the self reflective dialogue from the main character is juvenile at times -very out of character.
But I was still riveted. I am enthralled with the way the author has defined fleet actions in space. Too many space epics just take the reader from situation to situation and that's fine.
This series allows one to see how an actual fleet action would be undertaken, and the very real complications involved in transporting a war fleet across the stars.
I especially appreciate how the author pays attention to the mind wrecking distances involved in the navigation of space.
There are two main characters: BlackJack and the fabric of space itself.
Voice acting is on spot, only 2 or 3 goofs. The voice actor went out of his way to personalize as many characters as plausible with variations in dialect and intonation.

Binging on Captain Gary & crew!

Can't decide if I am happy or sad that there is one book left in this series. Have pretty much binged on this series and just downloaded number 6 and will start as soon as I finish this review!

Enjoyable book

This was my first book in this series. I was concerned about starting so far in, but while I likely missed a lot of action in the earlier books I had no problem getting current. The storyline was very much to my liking as was the narration. I've already downloaded the next book in the series.
