Customer Reviews

The story line and twist in the story are well written.
NJ Wetsu
While the story developed the main character, it felt a bit of letdown for the real showdown to be put off to at least the next volume.

Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet and Lost Stars series are the best space opera we have read.

A good book, but one of my least favorites in the series. The first third of the book was a difficult read. The dialogue seemed disjointed at times and the prose difficult to get through. It didn't flow naturally. For example, the various meetings that Geary has with the politicians that accompanied his team to Earth had dialogue that seemed stilted and repetitive, and frankly didn't add too much to what we already knew about the politicians of the Alliance.

Once Campbell found himself dealing with matters that needed fixing by Geary, whether it was combat or personal interaction, the book picked up. Geary grows as a leader, using his ideals and conduct that seems "old fashioned" persuade people to take the "right" action, rather than the self-interested action. There's a bit of cartoonish general in the book that embodies the worst of the career bureaucrat that Geary neutralizes nicely.

One complaint I have about the book - it felt a bit like filler in the series. We've been told that there are forces in the Alliance that are being built to confront Geary and keep his influence in check, and that there is a leader waiting in the background to lead those forces. We don't see any of this in the book until nearly the end. The entire book is a bit of a set-up to perhaps a significant confrontation in the next book. While the story developed the main character, it felt a bit of letdown for the real showdown to be put off to at least the next volume.

One theme from the book that was clear was the author's message that a government keeping secrets against it's citizens is a government that is rotting from within. This point was hammered by Campbell so many times you have to wonder if he is making a statement about our current state of affairs. It's a theme he plays on greatly...too many secrets for the wrong reasons leading to disaster.

Format: Hardcover
I had wondered in what direction the story would go after what seemed like an arc-ending plot in the previous book, Guardian (finding the Dancers and then bringing them to Earth). But in this book 4 of the Beyond the Frontier saga, author Campbell continues to impress and somehow manages to completely up the ante. But it isn't all new storyline: reoccurring themes such as the mystery of the 'dancing lights' in hyperspace, as well as newer plot developments of the secretly constructed new fleet are brought up here again and more tantalizing hints given. It makes for great space opera: overall story arcs across the entire series, smaller story arcs across subseries, and then several book-only arcs all weave together superbly.

Story: Geary is vacationing on Earth with Desjani, dealing with the homeworld's endless bureaucracy and paperwork. When two of the Dauntless' officers are kidnapped, Geary tracks them down to a world wiped clean by a man-made virus and then strictly quarantined. Meanwhile, he will also be sent on a seemingly insignificant errand to deal with Syndicate refugees. He's going to find that the Syndicate isn't quite done with him yet. And as for the Dancers - they are leaving tantalizing hints that something is very wrong in the universe. And at its heart, the Alliance itself.

All the usual battle scenes are here - with a surprising and inventive new battle at the end. There is also a lot of soul searching as Geary begins to realize he might just be guided by the Living Stars after all. Themes such as his reliance and growth from Rione and Desjani are given new light when he is separated from the Dauntless and instead accompanies Duellos on a seemingly futile mission. And an old menace from the very first book makes a reappearance to cause mayhem.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the formula to write a Lost Fleet sequel. Step one: Copy and paste paragraphs wholesale from the original book and any other sequels already written. Step two: Make sure to have Geary complain about being Black Jack and not understand why people look up to him. Step three: Finish the book before you get anywhere approaching a resolution. Step four: Make sure to charge a ridiculous sum of money for it.

I've purchased all the other Lost Fleet books. Some have been interesting. The alien exploration books have had a unique feel to them as well. However, the novels are increasingly repetitive. I have seen the same description of meeting room software, almost word for word identical, in EVERY SINGLE BOOK up to this point. Geary has complained about being seen as Black Jack, voicing the same objections in an almost identical manner in EVERY SINGLE BOOK up to this point.

Previous books have included commercials for the other series, Lost Stars. This book has its commercial as well. "How could people support such a system?" has been asked time and time and time again in each book since the Lost Stars series was announced.

I'm definitely getting ripped off on pricing. You're sending me a digital file. There are no paper or ink costs, there is no cost of binding, or shipping, or physical storage. Paying $12.99 is a ripoff. Paying $6.99 is a ripoff. I feel like what I've paid for the other books should be taken into account with how much content in this book is just copy/paste. I think this one should be free. And of course this book ends with the big hook for The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: The Pursuit Of More Money.
