Publisher's Summary

Outnumbered by the superior forces and firepower of the Syndicate Worlds, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous retreat across the enemy star system. Led by the legendary Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who returned to the fleet after a hundred-year suspended animation, the Alliance is desperately trying to return home with its captured prize: the key to the Syndic hypernet, and the key to victory.Geary is convinced that the Syndics are planning to ambush the fleet and finish it off once and for all. Realizing the fleet's best (and only) chance is to do the unexpected, Geary takes the offensive and orders the fleet to the Sancere system. There, a multitude of possible routes home give the Alliance fleet a better chance of avoiding their pursuers - and an attack on the Sancere shipbuilding facilities could decimate the Syndic war effort.Weary from endless combat, the officers and crew of the Alliance fleet can't see the sense in charging deeper into enemy territory - prompting a mutiny that divides them and leaves Geary with higher odds against him than ever before.BONUS AUDIO: Author Jack Campbell describes how he brought real-world physics to the The Lost Fleet series.

A great if short listen...

The lost fleet book 2 is an interesting and engaging listen, even if at one point you can hear one of the voice actors drop the script.?

Without giving away too much of the story line, the author manages to continue the all out action space battles seen in the first novel while continuing to expand on the subplots and themes i.e. What would a centry of all out war do to the people that fight it? Power, greed and temptation and the introduction of an anti-hero in this book also helps highlight the dual nature of the human soul... Can someone be both Good and evil??
As a long standing fan of SiFi and military novels both current and historical this series seems to be shaping up well of particular note is the way the author handles the Physic and mathematics required to wage war within a truly 4D environment (3D releativty) Jack Campbell includes just enough so the we get a feel for the complexities without grinding the book to a halt going through formulas and equations.

The only con with this audiobook is it's length, at a little under 10 hours it is rather short however, given the fact that I couldn't stop listening the length was probably a good thing... Otherwise i might never of made it to work.?

A gripping series with big space battles

Big fleet space combat interspersed with multi-faction political intrigue and mystery. Believable technology and fleet manoeuvres make the battles exciting.



Some of the characters are a little 2D and switch between professional military and childlike attitudes but it does work.



I am consuming the whole series back to back!



Rummel's narration is great and adds a lot of atmosphere . I shall be looking for other books narrated by him.
