Product Description

Review

There is plenty of action, some very well described space battles and the plot moves along at a cracking rate. The internal tension between the characters is also well done, with the political intrigues proving as interesting as the large pitched space battles. --Starburst

Product Description

The war-weary Alliance First Fleet, commanded by Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary, is scores of lightyears from human-controlled space. After narrowly escaping the deadly enigma race they were sent to evaluate, the fleet is facing a second, even more hostile, alien species in an unknown star system. 

Geary is determined to make it home before danger can strike humanity again. To fight his way out of the alien trap, all he has to do is hold the fleet together, despite everything that threatens to break it apart.

As a print book, see:
The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier--Invincible (Lost Fleet Beyond/Frontier 2)

As a Kindle book, see:
The Lost Fleet Beyond the Frontier - Invincible

Following on from, and a bit better than, "Dreadnaught", Invincible sees Admiral Geary and his fleet learning that if they discover a second intelligent alien species, their governments actually want them to make it home with the news. They discover a second -and a third. (Which may have been studying humanity, in a completely neutral way, for much longer than the meddling and interfering Enigmas.)

There has recently been a bit of a debate in the real world about the likely nature of any intelligent alien species we might meet, so this book is topical as well as entertaining.

See:
[...]
with Jill Tarter suggesting that any alien capable of interstellar travel would be far too advanced to be anything other than highly liberal and enlightened, and Dr Stephen Hawking suggesting that contact with such an advanced culture would be likely to end very badly for us, as the less advanced culture.

Without giving too much of the plot away, Jack Campbell's thesis is that the way aliens would react to meeting us, would depend far more on what they had evolved from, than the level of technology or spiritual enlightenment they might have attained in order to travel between the stars. That's an idea worth looking at and thinking about, so I have no hesitation in recommending this book even to those who normally shun space opera in favour of thoughtful science fiction, because it is a thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable space romp. 28 May 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
As a fan of historical fiction naval stories, I really couldn't' wait to rejoin Captain Geary as he takes the reader into a futuristic war where new discoveries surprise and add new elements to this already wonderfully explosive world. It's carefully crafted, the author has a clear understanding of pace and brings it altogether with a wonderful set of elements that work wonderfully on the imagination.

Back that up with an author who believes in letting events reveal themselves naturally rather than forced and all in this is a wonderful set of tales for the young at heart of all ages. All in a great bit of fun but for me the real triumph is the authors use of character dialogue to futher the tale as well as help the reader to enact with this future. Magical elements all round and for me a real treat to indulge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Black Jack and the Aliens 12 April 2013
By JPS TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To a large extent, "Beyond the Frontier" volume 2 (Invincible) continues in the same line as all of the previous Lost Fleet episodes, with the same ingredients being used. Accordingly, "fans" of the Lost Fleet (including myself) will get what they are used to: the usual "bantering" between Black Jack and his two closest female associates, the usual bits of intrigue and "complex" relationships between him and some of his captains (his niece, in particular) and the usual (and rather impressive) space battle.

Although I very much liked Tarnished Knight, largely because it was different, I just could not help feeling a strong sense of "déjà vu" and a certain lack of originality when reading this book and it left me a bit disenchanted. I recognize however that this subjective feeling is somewhat unfair in two respects. As a first new element, the author introduces us to three alien races, so two more in addition to the ones already meet in "Beyond the Frontier: Dreadnaught". Secondly, as Black Jack and his worn out Fleet rush back to defend human space, the threads come together between this book and "The Lost Stars: Tarnished Knight". Note however that both books can very well be read separately.

Even then, however, and although I still liked and enjoyed the book, I was not exactly "carried away" anymore, as I had been with some of the previous titles. Nor did I like it quite as much as Tarnished Knight. Maybe some of the previous "magic" has worn off a little, as each "Lost Fleet" book (there are six of them) and now each "Beyond the Frontier" (currently two with the third volume due to be published shortly) book tends to contain the same or very similar ingredients. After a number of volumes, this tends to get somewhat repetitive even if still enjoyable...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent continuation to the series 9 Jun 2012
By luke997 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the series and John Geary Jack Black.

After first part - Beyond Frontier, I just couldn't wait for the next, curious how the story line with Aliens will move on.

Without any spoilers - this part is on the same level as whole series, so I'm a very satisfied reader.

If you enjoyed previous books - don't hesitate and get this one, you won't be disappointed!
