Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Lost Fleet: Victorious (Lost Fleet 6) (Paperback)
I am reviewing book 6 of the series as it is the last one of a continuous story.
The books are about a fleet, trapped in an alien start system that is at war with the one the fleet comes from. A captain, John Geary, who was in the first battel of the war a hundred years before has been rescued from a suvival pod. The commander of the fleet and other senior officers go to negotiate with the enemy and the commander nominates Geary as his successor because of his seniority of rank, The commander and he officers are murdered by the enemy and Geary takes command.
Over the hundred years the fleet tactics have degenrated into mad charges regardless of casualties.
Using his experience and training Geary turns the fleet into a lethal tactical force to fight their way back to their own star system.
I did wonder how such a story could be stretched so far without becoming boring hwoever it never did.
With the various threads of the constant battles, the varying threats, the internal conflicts betwen the various factions and personal relationships on board the flagship the story never lags. Here we have real space opera and a good human story all rolled into one.
In fact I enjoyed it so much that I ordered books one and two of "The Lost Fleet Beyond the Frontier" before I had finished this set. I can say that that is a continuation of the story but going even further. Not only that I have been ordering other books by the same author. He is great.
