#2 in Spin off series from "lost fleet" series.
on 20 October 2013
Moves on the story of the Syndicate worlds after Black Jack's victories recounted in the lost fleet series. Think: break up of Soviet union, re-emerging democracy etc. and you have the basic picture.
This series runs in parallel with the Beyond Frontiers sequels.
The scenarios are a bit simplistic and very stereotyped but there are a few interesting twists. There are clearly about 5 books planned so the story lacks pace and I felt it was being stretched over about four books too many.
