The Lost Fleet: Dauntlessby Jack Campbell
Synopses & Reviews
Admiral John andldquo;Black Jackandrdquo; Geary was revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, he is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleetandmdash;and himselfandmdash;in harmandrsquo;s way...
An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Gearyandrsquo;s fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systemsandmdash;only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring the First Fleetandrsquo;s peaceful communications, this species sends its ships into battle while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power. Now Geary must find a way to reach the jump point without massive casualtiesandmdash;even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other sideandhellip;
The Alliance has been fighting the Syndic for a century and losing. Now its fleet is crippled and stranded in enemy territory. Their only hope is Captain John "Black Jack" Geary, who emerges from a century-long hibernation to find he must live up to his legend in this first of a new series. Original.
In this second novel of the Lost Fleet, Captain John RJack BlackS Geary tries a desperate gamble to lead the Alliance Fleet home--through enemy-occupied space--only to lose half the Fleet to an unexpected mutiny. Original.
In this fourth installment, Black Jack Geary has ordered his fleet back to the Lakota Star System, where the Syndics nearly destroyed them. It's a desperate gamble that may give them a fighting chance of survival--or tear them apart. Original.
Captain John “Black Jack” Geary’s legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic “last stand” in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance Fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndic.
Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance’s one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic “Black Jack” legend...
The Alliance has been fighting a losing battle against the Syndicate worlds for more than a century. Now, Captain John Black Jack Geary, who has returned to the fleet after a 100-year suspended animation, must keep the Alliance one step ahead of its merciless foe. Original.
