The Lost Fleet continues its perilous journey home.
Badly damaged and low on supplies, the Alliance Fleet is raiding Syndic mines for raw materials-and Captain "Black Jack" Geary hopes they can continue to remain one step ahead of their enemies. But the Syndics are the least of Geary's worries when he learns of the existence of aliens with the power to annihilate the human race.

These nooks are short but glorious.
Jack Campbell takes the story of the lost band of warriors travelling through enemy territory, has it spanning 6 books, and consistently delivers even through this third book in the series. Wow. The ending alone was perfect. Having Captain Geary constantly struggling between his own actions as the commander of a fleet using forgotten tactics and the bravado of the ‘Black Jack Geary’ persona that hangs on his shoulders makes it all that much more epic.

[This review is for the first 3 books of the Lost Fleet series.]
“Dauntless” starts with a rush and then settles down into the nuts and bolts of large-scale naval … I mean … space warfare. At first, it seems interesting, though a bit shallow.
However, “Fearless” and “Courageous” add nothing to the first novel. It’s obviously a one-trick concept: formatted battles with confusing geometrical formations and victory against all odds. The same character emotions over and over. A beauty (or curse?) of e-readers is the ability to search key phrases; in these novels the same sentences are repeated over and over. That’s lazy writing.
So, good beginning. Then, monotonous retread.
