Captain John “Black Jack” Geary’s legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic “last stand” in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance Fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndic.
Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance’s one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic “Black Jack” legend...


  • Second time

    I got this book for free from iTunes a couple of years ago, read it, enjoyed it, went to read it again and it didn't show in my library. I'm not complaining though. I baught it and am reading it again. If you like space heros this is your book!

    By Gordon St Clair
    Decently written, but lacks the depth and breadth of classic sf.

    Excellent! Read it in one sitting. Picked it up and could not put it down. Highly recommend. :)
  • Great Entertainment

    This book starts in the middle of a climatic battle and the tension does not let up from there. This is an amazing read--it has space combat, interesting characters, a well developed plot in an easy to read format. I found the author had great ways of keeping the reader interested while advancing the story in new and innovative ways throughout. The only bad thing I can think of is that if you buy this book plan on buying the next five in the series because they are all just as good. I have not regretted purchasing this book and enjoy rereading the entire series frequently--do yourself a favor and get immersed in the Lost Fleet universe.
  • Easy read

    By Wine junky
    This book was an easy read with a simple plot line that was fairly predictable while still being entertaining. I'm going to read the next book in the series although I am not yet committed to reading the entire series. This isn't Star Wars...

    If you enjoy a good page turner, great character development, and an old fashion sifi this series is the one.
