Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Fleet series returns to the epic space saga of a rebellion against a totalitarian regime, and the determination of two people to create a better future in the farthest reaches of the colonized galaxy...  

The Syndicate Worlds continues to splinter as more star systems pledge allegiance to President Gwen Iceni’s and General Artur Drakon’s new government at Midway. But the rebels fleeing the toxic legacy of Syndicate rule have difficulty trusting one another and believing their new leaders’ promises of freedom from tyranny.

Before Iceni and Drakon can put their house in order, they must deal with another threat. An enigma warship has appeared and vanished near a Syndic colony. If the aliens are capable of jumping into other human-occupied star systems, then billions of people could be vulnerable to a hostile invasion fleet anywhere it chooses to strike.

But an even greater liability lies with Iceni and Drakon as a once-trusted adviser turned saboteur plans revenge...

“There is one thing Jack Campbell really does very well indeed [and] it is writing space battles. They are fabulous, and there are enough here to give you a real taste of what it would be like to be up there and shot at.”—SFcrowsnest

I am stingy about giving a five star rating. I enjoyed the book and will likely read again. The space battles were great. I do wonder if this will be the last in the series since it resolved most of the plot lines.

Good book. Hoping that this isn't the end of the series though. He did seem to resolve most of the storylines.

A good story, and a great addition to Black Jack's universe. The ending was a little "pat" for my tastes, but still skillfully told.

This sounds very much like another in my colection. I am often unsure of what I have and what B&N tells me I have. More than once. Having two of something is not all ways a good thing. So, I will check and perhaps purchase this. The others are great! But?
