7.99 for paperback, 7.99 for e-book? That is insane for a 236 page book. We are paying $47.00 for 1416 pages worth of series even if it is a good series. How about a box edition for e-book. Or atleast a price difference between paperback and e-book.

I mistakenly read this book first rather than 'Dauntless', which is the first book in the series. What's so good about it, though, is that it can easily stand alone even though it's the third book in the series. The story gripped me immediately and kept me interested---so much so that I finished this one and have now started at the beginning of the series. The other reviewer was correct, however, the previous book could have been lengthened to finish the whole story but I like how it's been broken up and I am definitely looking forward to the next in the series.

If you have read the first two books in the series then you may feel like things are dragging out a little bit for the first half of the book. There are twists with the romance and a bit of drama here and there with dealing with the fleet itself but for the most part it feels like an extension of the other books. But then there are a few more interesting twists and turns towards the latter part of the book that really kept me on the edge of my seat. The implications of which seem to be real game changers and it is starting to feel a lot less of a sure thing that things with wrap up all nice and tidy for our Lost Fleet. I am really enjoyed it. I wouldn't give it 5 stars because as with the others it feels short and a little bit like the books are divided up too quickly. . . but I'm really enjoying myself in reading them so I'll be a sucker and pony up for more. :-)
