Overview

Outnumbered by the superior forces and firepower of the Syndicate Worlds, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous retreat across the enemy star system. Led by the legendary Captain John “Black Jack” Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, the Alliance is desperately trying to return home with its captured prize: the key to the Syndic hypernet, and the key to victory…

Geary is convinced that the Syndics are planning to ambush the fleet and finish it off once and for all. Realizing the fleet's best (and only) chance is to do the unexpected, Geary takes the offensive and orders the fleet to the Sancere system. There, a multitude of possible routes home give the Alliance fleet a better chance of avoiding their pursuers — and an attack on the Sancere shipbuilding facilities could decimate the Syndic war effort.

Weary from endless combat, the officers and crew of the Alliance fleet can't see the sense in charging deeper into enemy territory — prompting a mutiny that divides them and leaves Geary with higher odds against him than ever before…

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
A centuries-old interstellar conflict. Millions dead. Entire star systems obliterated. A tough-as-nails leader trying to lead a lost fleet back home from deep in enemy territory. Military science fiction fans who are searching for a fast-paced, no-holds-barred, deep-space military-powered adventure should check out the Lost Fleet saga by Jack Campbell (pseudonym for veteran genre writer John G. Hemry), a surprisingly multi-layered series that incorporates elements of space opera, apocalyptic thriller, and, at times, subtly allegorical social commentary.

In Fearless, the sequel to 2006's Dauntless, legendary war hero Captain John "Black Jack" Geary is once again faced with a seemingly hopeless situation. Recently rescued from an escape pod found floating in space after nearly a century in suspended animation, Geary is desperately trying to find a way to bring what's left of the Alliance fleet back home. In his possession is a device acquired from an enemy starship that could end the war forever. But with the entire military force of the Syndicate Worlds hot on his trail, Geary is up against impossible odds -- especially when he frees a labor camp of Alliance POWs and rescues an egomaniacal captain whose irrational machismo could doom the entire fleet…

It's obvious that Hemry, a retired naval officer, has an intimate knowledge of the saga's militaristic underpinnings; and although his expertise at re-creating traditional military ethics and doctrine, battle formations and strategies, the mind-set and culture of the soldier, etc., is exceptional, the real power behind this series is the masterfully complex characterization of his protagonist. The disturbing societal revelations for this heroic Rip Van Winkle, a true man out of time, are just beginning. Future installments should prove to be even more entertaining. Paul Goat Allen

    Great series... But price?

    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.

    Really great 2nd book to the series.

    Just like the first book, this one is packed with some really exciting, interesting space fleet battles. The addition of "real" science in terms of the complexities of relativity, speed, gravity etc. all play out in a way that adds an awesome "twist" to the battles. With this book there is a little bit more on the character development front. The fact that the hero of the book is a military leader means that his subordinates HAVE to follow him and so if he were to abuse that power he could easily eliminate all opposing opinions and set himself up as a kind of dictator. Its cool to see that struggle play out in his mind. And this book throws in a little dash of romance which makes everyone feel a bit more human and less sterile. All good stuff.

    My only complaint is that it is a bit short and that the formatting of the e-book is "off". The margins. . . or "border" around the text is much too big. There wasn't any way for me to change that on my nook. :-( The first book in the series was perfectly formatted. Its so strange that the 2nd book is "off".

    I love this series but

    Wonderful series, but is to expensive for my taste. Each battle costs $7.99 and are in short story length.
