Overview

Relentless (Lost Fleet Series #5) by Jack Campbell

Captain John “Black Jack” Geary races to save a group of Alliance POWs from certain death in this gripping novel in New York Times bestselling author Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series.
 
Alliance prisoners of war are being held at a labor camp in the Heradao star system, which also happens to be the location of the majority of the surviving Syndic warships. Determined not to leave any of his people behind, “Black Jack” Geary orders the fleet to strike hard and fast to rescue the POWs with minimal Alliance losses.
 
The raid is successful, but victory is short-lived. Geary discovers that the Syndics plan to ambush the fleet with their powerful reserve flotilla in an attempt to annihilate it once and for all—but he doesn’t know where the enemy is located. And as Geary has the fleet jump from one star system to the next, hoping to avoid the inevitable confrontation, saboteurs contribute to the chaos...

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've been waiting for this book for a year. I found The Lost Fleet series by chance, following the advice in a writer's reference book I own about reading things I normally would not read. I don't normally enjoy a science fiction book with only humans. I like other beings. I read this series and fell in love with it. This book did not disappoint at all. I got it in the mail and pretty much devoured it. I loved it. And can't wait for the next one.

This book really kept me on the edge of my seat. As the fleet kept getting more and more torn up, the stakes kept getting higher and higher and I just couldn't put it down! While this book is back to being on the rather short side, its not lacking in intensity in any way. I REALLY enjoyed this book in the series and so I'm giving it 5 stars. Can't wait to dive into the next one.

A century ago the Syndicate Worlds attacked the Alliance who fought back. Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's ship the Meron was destroyed but he escaped in a pod in suspended animation; only to wake up a hundred years later to learn he is a legend and that the war continues unabated. The Alliance sends a fleet into the heart of Syndic Space, but due to a series of dreadful circumstances, Jack becomes the commander. After some fierce battles, the fleet is ready to use Jump Points to return to Alliance space. Jack and a few others learned the Syndicate worlds were manipulated into going to war by a mysterious race of aliens who want the two combatant groups to destroy one another. It is urgent that Jack and his crew return home because they possess the Syndic hypernet key that can be used as a weapon. While fighting and eluding the Syndic fleets, Jack tries to convince those who have admired him that he dos not want to be the leader of the Alliance and explains to his supporters he is a warrior not a politician. This exhilarating action packed outer space military thriller will remind the audience of the battles in Star Wars. Jack is terrific as he realizes his past glory can carry him so far with his demi-god celebrity status, but he caught in a conundrum of what his fame means to the Alliance and what he has learned while in Syndric Space about the true enemy. Many believe he is the only one who can end the hundred year war though he has his doubts as to what should be done next. Harriet Klausner

Two months ago, I started reading this series. I cannot put the books down. About as perfect of a Sci Fi novella as I could find.

All books in this series are great. I couldn't put them down and read one right after the other. Engaging, plot is exciting, main characters are well developed, back plots are intriguing.
