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.

    "Great series"

    I listened to the first 4 books and then read the 5th in paperback. These books are so much better with the narrator. He is awesome. Needless to say I'm downloading the final book to listen to.

    "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.

    "Addictive!"

    Who would’ve thought that details of space battles can be so captivating! Better than any romance novels. I’m hooked on this series and its main characters!

    "not bad but then"

    The style of writing is good, and the first books of the series got much better critique from me. This book gets repetativ, to much of the same battles with explanations that has been given several times in the other books.
    the worst though, for me is the dialogues. They are so unreal and childish, I keep waiting for some adult reasoning. But one of the main characters, female politician, is portrayed as a high level leader but dialogues are always filled with poisonous verbal sting.
    I will not buy any more books of this series, that's how disappointed I am.

    "Awsome book series for scifi fans."

    The series so far is awsome and the voice feels spot on for Cpt Geary.

    "Good story, but..."

    The ongoing story is interesting and engaging, but the trite and sterotypic 'jealousy' bit was almost enough to make me give up anyway. It was so excessive that I WOULD have stopped if this had been the first book in the series
    Two strong, intelligent, independant female characters act like insecure jealous teenagers over the main character... They decide to 'hate' each other because they both like the same man. Never mind that in the last book they respected each other and were becoming friends.
    Given the personalities and situations of the characters, it makes no sense that they'd act like spitting cats.

    It's sad that despite the good story, that negative bit is what I remember the most

    "Great series, love it!"

    Great continuation of the story with wonderful characters. Forth book in and it's time for a little breather. I'll come back for more of this great series in a bit.
