Publisher's Summary

Jack Campbell returns to the world of the New York Times best-selling Lost Fleet novels with a new action-packed military science fiction series that explores the founding of the Alliance...and the men and women who fought to create it.
Earth is no longer the center of the universe. After the invention of the faster-than-light jump drive, humanity is rapidly establishing new colonies. But the vast distances of space mean that the old order of protection and interstellar law offered by Earth has ceased to exist.
When a nearby world attacks, the new colony of Glenlyon turns to Robert Geary, a young former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, a onetime enlisted marine. With nothing but improvised weapons and a few volunteers, Geary and Darcy must face down warships and armored soldiers - or die trying.
As battles rage and pirates take an increasing toll throughout the colonies, the only hope for lasting peace lies with Carmen Ochoa, a "Red" from the anarchic world of Mars, and Lochan Nakamura, a failed politician. They have a plan: to lay the groundwork for mutual defense that could someday grow into an alliance. But if their efforts don't succeed, the growing power of aggressor worlds could turn regions of space founded on freedom into battlefields between the first interstellar empires.

Great start, looking forward to where it leads

Greatly enjoy this book, sets the scene for a new series very well. Very excited to see where the story goes.

Both fans of the lost fleet series and people who haven't read them will enjoy this book as explains the setting well without requiring knowledge from other books.

Narrator did a great job with providing unique accent/voice to many characters throughout the story.

New Fleet to Follow

As a long time Lost Fleet Fan. I was hoping for the best and dreading what the new Fleet might bring.

I'm happy to say that I sat listened to it in almost one sitting and loved it. I'm not going to ruin the story by saying anything about what is in it. Just go and get the book.

Campbell has rebuilt the lost fleet into Genesis with barely a foot out of place. Well done and I look forward to the rest of the books.

I would also note that Christian Rummel did a great job again helping to make a good story into a great one with his reading. Look forward to hearing more from you too.
