Overview

The New York Times bestselling series that delivers "edge-of- your-seat combat" (Elizabeth Moon, author of the Vatta's War series).

The Alliance woke Captain John "Black Jack" Geary from cryogenic sleep to take command of the fleet in the century-long conflict against the Syndicate Worlds. Now Fleet Admiral Geary's victory has earned him the adoration of the people-and the enmity of politicians convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing.

Geary knows that members of the military high command and the government question his loyalty to the Alliance and fear his staging a coup-so he can't help but wonder if the newly christened First Fleet is being deliberately sent to the far side of space on a suicide mission.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Captain John "Black Jack" Geary was floating in cryogenic sleep when the Alliance awakened him to strike a decisive blow in the hundred year's war against the Syndicate Worlds. Now a triumphant admiral and a wildly popular hero, Geary must face a new enemy: The leaders of the government and military have become convinced that he present a grave threat to their power. To neutralize him, they have sent him to the far reaches of the universe on an all-but-certain suicide mission. One of the major releases of the month.

Publishers Weekly
Campbell combines the best parts of military SF and grand space opera to launch a new adventure series. After winning the war for the Alliance in Campbell's first Lost Fleet series, Adm. John "Black Jack" Geary is in command of the newly formed First Fleet. Geary's popularity is cause for concern among the political minders of the Alliance, however, and the First Fleet is ordered into alien territory, where its mission is sabotaged by overbearing orders and substandard equipment. Campbell takes his time getting the story going, focusing on the military and political mechanics of the Fleet getting underway, but eventually Geary and the Fleet are encouraged to leave Alliance space and voyage to alien realms. Geary's Star Trek–like mission of exploration sets the fleet up for plenty of exciting discoveries and escapades. (May)

    Excellent Read

    Former Military. When the reference for "ultimate repair tool" was brought up I almost choked laughing. I knew immediately what was being talked about. Jack was right about something else too: When you want to know something...ask a Chief....just don't ask where X item came from.

    The Lost Fleet turns from military science fiction to Star Trekking Beyond the Frontier

    The war is over and the Alliance won thanks mostly due to the strong military leadership of Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary (see six books of The Lost Fleet Syndicate Worlds war). As his reward, the popular officer is assigned command and control of the newly commissioned First Fleet.

    However, the Alliance political leaders who were grateful to Geary for the tough war decisions do not want a popular war hero hanging amongst them. They order Geary and his First Fleet to enter into the far rim of Syndic space allegedly to investigate alien occupation. Geary understands though the combat with the Syndicate Worlds is over with the enemy shattered, entering the deepest sector is suicide. Making the mission even more perilous is his unit has been supplied with inferior equipment and orders that stifle accomplishment while increasing risk.

    With a great space rotation, The Lost Fleet turns from military science fiction to Star Trekking Beyond the Frontier. The story line is as always faster than the speed of light as hostilities remain extremely high even with the war over; as Black Jack's previous political supporters want him out of town. Jack Campbell creates a terrific unexpected spin to his great outer space saga as the formerly Lost Fleet now The First Fleet is sent by armchair leaders to die.

    This one is just too expensive for me. $4.99 would be about right.

    If you like space Sci Fi. . .

    Bought my first Lost Fleet book @ the grocery store, and I have read all of them because I couldn't stop. So well researched, and just enough human drama to make the story very real. Even though it's far into the future and takes place in space, story so well written could be a diary of true events.

    Awesome. . . Again. . .

    These books are always great but this one really stands out. The introduction of new alien species has made things a lot more interesting. There was also a great line in the book that made me laugh. Something about how if ever stories were written about the lead character that they would probably illustrate the book cover with him in a suit of armor . . . even though he never wears armor. LOL. So true! It's like the illustrator is illustrating a whole other series that has nothing to do with the Lost Fleet. :-)
