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.

    "20% is catching you up on previous books."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Lost Fleet: Valiant to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy the lost fleet series, but I think this is my last one...because each new book has to cover the ground of previous books in case the reader hasn't read them. It's very tedious and detracts from the enjoyment of the books. Book #2 spends about 5 minutes catching you up. Book #3, 15 minutes and book #4 (feels like) 25 minutes of "catch-up" over the first 6 chapters. We know the characters and love them. We read all previous books. There's no need to cater to the 1 reader out of 20,000 that didn't read the other books. SO.....I don't think I'm going to read book #5. It's just too distracting to hear about each character's back-story with every successive book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Most: The battle descriptions. Least: Rehashing material from previous books.


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

    Victoria.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "The 99% are coming for your CEO"

    Story
    "A future well rendered"

    To enjoy the fourth book in a series is saying something. It has not run its' course yet for me. Part of the pleasure of listening to this series is imagining each planetary system and then overlaying the fleet tactics. I also enjoy speculating on the progress of technology and the cultural changes, and constants, humans would experience along the way, and Jack Campbell does a fantastic job on both counts. Wrapped up in exciting action makes the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend keeping your hands occupied with yardwork or housecleaning while listening; you'll burn a few calories with The Lost Fleet series.

    Story
    "They do exist!"
    Where does The Lost Fleet: Valiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high. I really enjoy this series and Valiant is the most satisfying (to me) out of the books so far.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Fleet: Valiant to and why?

    i honestly don't know. the first one that comes to mind is Mass Effect: Ascension. It caught me off guard and was different from the other books so far in the series. It didn't have a whole lot of action, but the discussions that were talked about answered a lot of questions I had in the series so far.


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

    He does a spot on Victoria Rione! her character is cold hearted, ruthless and blunt. Christian delivers with every quote from her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I only listen about 1/2 - 1 hour at a time. I typically listen to it in the car. So No, i like it better in spurts.


    Any additional comments?

    SPOILERS: Great book. you learn a lot about the Aliens that lurk beyond the Syndicit worlds. It wasn't as action packed as previous books. but a lot of things were talked about that really moved the story forward and i thoroughly enjoyed that!<br/>Great book!

    I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.

    Story
    "Valiant!"

    The journey to Alliance Space continues to takes its physical and mental toll on fabled hero Black Jack Geary. This book is solid entry into the series, and we're beginning to see the toll it's taking on the leaders of the Fleet from the different starship captains as well as John Geary. We get to see more of the same in terms of the flow of the way the books go. Travel to new system, battle, resupply and move on. There's more of that, but there's also a shift in the way the Syndic forces appear to the Alliance. Geary's actions have begun to affect the psyche of the Syndicate worlds citizens. There are also new threats that the crew must contend with, some within the Alliance and some outside.

    Book 4 was a much better book than book 3 in the series. Valiant gives us the opportunity to build upon what the first few books only hinted at in terms of crew relations, the Syndics and the mounting tolls on our hero.

    Christian Rummel's performance was solid as usual and he remained engaged to delivering a solid performance without becoming bored with such a long series. If book 3 was a letdown for you, book 4 does much of the same, but there was enough here to make me want to see finish the journey home.

    "The Lost Fleet Saga"

    I found the author to be very good and the storyline to be exiting and hard to put down. creates a connection to the characters and an overall view of mankind and their ambitions to create a better life.Also how some people only think about their own gains and do not think of how others are affected by there selfish goals.
