Overview

Tarnished Knight (Lost Stars Series #1) by Jack Campbell

CEO Artur Drakon has been betrayed. The Syndicate Worlds’ government failed to protect its citizens from both the Alliance and the alien enigmas. With a cadre of reliable soldiers under his command, Drakon launches a battle for control of the Midway Star System—assisted by an ally he’s unsure he can trust…
 
CEO Gwen Iceni was exiled to Midway because she wasn’t ruthless enough in the eyes of her superiors. She proved them wrong by commandeering some of the warships at Midway and declaring the star system’s independence on behalf of the people though staying in charge as “President.” But while she controls the mobile fleet, she has no choice but to rely on “General” Drakon’s ground forces to keep the peace planet-side.
 
If their coup is to succeed, Drakon and Iceni must put their differences aside to prevent the population of Midway from rebelling against them, to defend their star system from the enigmas—and to ferret out saboteurs determined to reestablish Syndic rule…

Not as exciting as the Black Jack part. But a good cover of some back story on Midway. It leads it self well for a lot more intresting sequels. I am looking forward to more stories from this universe.

I never thought I could love a pair of Syndics as much as Iceni and Drakon. This is a must read for any Campbell fan.

A good beginning, though kind of uneven.

A very interesting look at the 'other side' of he story. Taking its cue from the first book of the Beyond the Frontier series and following on from there, it is the story of the continuing dissolution of the Syndicate Worlds as seen from the point of view of Gwen Iceni and Artur Drakon, leaders of the breakaway world of Midway. It is humorous to see their misconceptions of Black Jack's place within the Alliance and the growth of the two central characters. Not quite as exciting as the Lost Fleet books but definitely head and shoulders over most modern military sci-fi. This is an excellent start to a new series.

I enjoyed the story line were it kept referring back to Black Jack and the Alliance fleet. Can't wait for book 2. Hope the next Lost fleet is a little better than the last one though.
