Legendary war hero Captain “Black Jack” Geary fights to stay ahead of his enemies in the fourth novel in Jack Campbell’s New York Times bestselling military science fiction series.
Deep within Syndicate World space, the Alliance fleet continues its dangerous journey home under the command of Captain John “Black Jack” Geary—revived after a century spent in suspended animation. Geary’s victories over the enemy have earned both the respect—and the envy—of his fellow officers...
Geary has made many risky decisions as commander of the Alliance fleet, but ordering them back to the Lakota Star System where the Syndics nearly destroyed them has his officers questioning his sanity. It’s a desperate gamble that may buy the fleet just enough time to prepare for the Syndics’ inevitable return.
Even as he struggles to give the fleet a fighting chance at survival, Geary faces dissent from within. An unknown number of officers want a change of command, but Geary knows that the Alliance fleet must stand together, or else the Syndic forces will tear them apart...
Explaining what happened in previous books is getting annoying
But past that when I get to presenting a situation and how the characters solve it it’s awesome but just tired of Geary constantly saying he’s not infallible and someone saying he isn’t or recapping everything that’s happened in the books for a 1/3 of the novel is annoying
The Lost Fleet: Valiant
Highly entertaining adventure story
They get better
Without being a spoiler, Valiant has some interesting plot twists and is my favorite of the series so far. By now we have several solid characters and multiple plot elements going on, including the rescue of Syndic civilians nicely done.
