Overview

Admiral Geary’s First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary’s mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire—an empire that is on the brink of collapse.
 
To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet’s journey back grueling and perilous.
 
And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers’ representatives safely unharmed, the Syndics’ attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance’s destruction...

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Continuing the deep-space adventures of Adm. John "Black Jack" Geary and company (Invincible, 2012, etc.). Having fought off the alien Kicks and captured one of their colossal battleships, renamed Invincible, and acquiring allies in the form of the alien Dancers, Geary is ready to return with his battered fleet to the Alliance home worlds. But first they must pass through the Midway star system, where ex-CEOs Iceni and Drakon have defeated the remnants of the Syndic loyalists. Unfortunately, it appears that the Syndics have invented a method of switching off the hyperspace gates necessary for rapid transit, necessitating a tiresome series of jumps through star systems where the Syndic Empire still clings to power. While theoretically the Alliance is no longer at war with the Empire, the latter is keen to do everything in its power to annoy, harass, threaten and otherwise disrupt Geary's passage. The Syndics' secondary objective is to capture or destroy Invincible which, though packed with potentially invaluable alien technology, is presently an inert hulk requiring most of Geary's own battleships to tow it. The vast ship is also haunted by ghosts that, while intangible, are psychically all too real. Once again, the visceral action comes fast and furious as the fleet attempts to evade or disrupt the traps the Syndics have laid. Geary proves a model commander, prone to doubts and moments of weakness, refreshingly willing to be advised by his subordinates, especially his wife, Tanya Desjani, who captains his flagship, and Emissary Victoria Rione, whose sharp political skills will prove invaluable. Well up to the high standards established by this intriguing series.

    A rare upbeat non stop high quality series

    I find the books of this universe better than Wheel of Time and far better than Game of Thrones. Although I like the universe of Iain M Banks, I detest his politics and what it does to his characters. Still I like to imagine The Lost Fleet universe as a possible beginning for Banks' Culture universe.

    The use of light speed as a critical component of space battle tactics is excellent and all the 3D space battles serve as an excellent extension to Orson Scott Card's treatment in Ender's Game.

    I think we have a classic series in the making. Thankyou Mr. Campbell!

    Another great book in the Lost Fleet series!

    Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I had it read in two days and wishing for more. This series and the Honor series by David Weber are the best in my opinion. Pick it up and start reading.

    Very highly recommended-riveting

    The Lost Fleet-Guardian continues the saga with gusto and remains faithful to the first book in the series.
    The plot, the interplay amongst the characters, and mix of the varying disciplines used to complete the novel is most excellent.
    The Guardian keeps you entranced from the first page to the last. I could not put the book down till it was read. I cannot wait for the next installment.
    This is a must read.
