'This is pulp fiction at it best, and it's great fun, with a quality of earnest integrity that comes from its author's real-world experience in the US Navy.' --GQ Magazine

If you've not read any of this series before then go to the following review of the first volumeDauntless (The Lost Fleet, Book 1) and read that before deciding to try it. Whilst the first chapter of this volume does give new readers all the information they need to know to jump onboard you'd be better off starting at the beginning.
If you have been following this series from the start, then read on.
This latest volume runs for three hundred and twenty pages and has twelve chapters. The writing style is as before. not great literature but perfectly readable, with space battles interdispered with fleet politics and discussions on the morality and ethics of honour and warfare.
regular readers will want to know how this one progresses the story, given that it's the penultimate volume.
so, without giving any spoilers away, let's say this:
the fleet really does make some progress in this one, and what happens to them does move the story forward well and set up a finale very nicely.
the enemies within the fleet plotline is dealt with and would appear to be wrapped up satisfactorily.
geary's love triangle doesn't get much discussion. rione seemingly stays out of that picture and his relationship with tanya will clearly not be resolved till the final volume.Read more ›
I would like to say that the author is listening to feedback on the earlier books, but although there is slightly less repetition of stuff we know it is still there unfortunately, and there are still painful/dull/silly scenes with Rione and Desjani.
Having said that I get the impression the book is shorter than previous instalments and whilst things progress nothing much new is added to the plot, so I must admit I was a bit underwhelmed, even a bit disappointed.
Overall, I have to say a good fun read, nice to see progress of the fleet but at the same time I could do with a longer book and less of the silly romantic/social interactions with President Rione & Captain Desjani - they are getting a bit annoying now.
Enjoyable, gripping, full of action. Highly recommended.
The series (three books) of "Stark's War" by John G Hemry is also a good read, depicting in graphic detail what happens when Senior Officers lose the plot and ignore the consequences of their decisions and how it affects the "grunts" on the ground.
