Solid space opera
I read any space opera / military science fiction I can get my hands on, and the Lost Fleet series doesn't disappoint. In my opinion Jack Campbell is not in the same league as David Weber or Steve White when it comes to writing about epic space battles between fleets of warships, but he nevertheless has created an interesting, unique and plausible universe and storyline. Lots of cool naval weaponry and futuristic technology. Definitely recommend to fans of the genre.

Worthy and satisfying ending.
The conclusion of the original six-book arc of Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series ties up the main ends in a satisfying way. Another plus is that the overall quality of the books has continued to grow. The space battles, which are the main driving force of the series, are kept interesting by constantly changing strategies and tactics, and situations. Not only does this one tie up the war with the Syndics, but also opens the way for the follow-up series, "Beyond the Frontier". One small caveat I had was the ease with which the other captains accepted the existence of the alien threat and jumped right on board, but then again another protracted political drama wouldn't have been welcomed at that point, either.
Overall a satisfying read, especially the resolution of the relationship at the end. If you've read his far, then you shouldn't be disappointed.
