The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: Steadfast

New York Times bestselling author Jack Campbell continues his “series of fast-paced adventure” (SFRevu) as The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier continues…

Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary and the crew of Dauntless have safely escorted important alien representatives to Earth. But before they can depart for home, two of Geary’s key lieutenants vanish. The search for his missing men leads Geary on a far-flung chase, ultimately ending at the one spot in space from which all humans have been banned: the moon Europa. Any ship that lands there must stay or be destroyed—leaving Geary to face the most profound moral dilemma of his life.

To make matters worse, strains on the Alliance are growing as the Syndics continue to meddle. Geary is ordered to take a small force to the border of Syndic space.

  1. A Good Addition to the Series, But Not The Best A good book, but one of my least favorites in the series. The first third of the book was a difficult read. The dialogue seemed disjointed at times and the prose difficult to get through. It didn’t flow naturally. For example, the various meetings that Geary has with the politicians that accompanied his team to Earth had dialogue that seemed stilted and repetitive, and frankly didn’t add too much to what we already knew about the politicians of the Alliance. 

  2. Is It Still Good After 10 Volumes? Heck yes! I had wondered in what direction the story would go after what seemed like an arc-ending plot in the previous book, Guardian (finding the Dancers and then bringing them to Earth). But in this book 4 of the Beyond the Frontier saga, author Campbell continues to impress and somehow manages to completely up the ante. But it isn’t all new storyline: reoccurring themes such as the mystery of the ‘dancing lights’ in hyperspace, as well as newer plot developments of the secretly constructed new…

  3. Haven’t I read this already? Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the formula to write a Lost Fleet sequel. Step one: Copy and paste paragraphs wholesale from the original book and any other sequels already written.

Step four: Make sure to charge a ridiculous sum of money for it.
