Publisher's Summary

The Phage War had been a devastating conflict for the Terran Confederacy. Even with the destruction of their terrifying, implacable foe, humanity is still reeling. Political alliances are crumbling, and their mighty fleet is in tatters. There is nothing to celebrate, even after such a complete victory.

They soon learn that there are other stellar neighbors - and they've been watching the conflict with great interest. One species comes with an offer of friendship and alliance, but humanity is weary and distrustful, their only interactions with aliens having resulted in the near eradication of their kind.

Before the ashes of war have been fully swept away, Captain Celesta Wright is dispatched to the Frontier with a small taskforce to investigate a mysterious signal while the Confederacy struggles to hold itself together. A partnership with this new species could help accelerate the recovery effort, but is the offer too good to be true? Can humanity risk another fight with an advanced alien species right on the heels of the bloodiest war that had ever been waged?

New Frontiers is the first book of the Expansion Wars Trilogy, an all-new adventure in the Black Fleet universe.

    Story
    "A Great Return"
    Would you consider the audio edition of New Frontiers to be better than the print version?

    Mark Boyett is to Joshua Dalzelle's excellent novels what Stephen Fry is to JK Rowling's Harry Potter - definitive and you can't imagine anyone else doing them as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the ingredients that made the first three stories so good are present. A believable depiction on the far future with interesting, fleshed out characters that hooks quickly and keeps you there for the whole story. I can't think a dull moment in the whole story.


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Mark Boyett has a good range of accents and is consistent with them. As a Brit myself, I find his British accented characters to be very well done. I love his slightly wry, world weary, cynical delivery which complements the story perfectly.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep!

    "Not my kind of book."

    Well written but not my kind of book. Navy type space battles all character seem very similar and lack depth.

    Story
    "An auspcious start to a new trilogy"

    Joshua Dalzelle's ability to write about new and interesting scientific achievements and phenomenon in such a way as to almost have me believe that they already exist is uncanny as much as it is entertaining. It was also good to see many/most of the primary characters return from the Black Fleet Trilogy, albeit, in changed roles. This went a long way in re-invigorating me with a new sense of anticipation as the story unfolds. I was particularly impressed with Sr. Capt. Celesta Wright coming of her own in this book and while not as swashbuckling a personality as Wolfe, her instincts and command leadership was every bit as rewarding to experience.

    There's not any acknowledgements I can give to Mark Boyett that I haven't repeatedly made before on his other works other than to assure everyone that he continues to excel as a narrator.

    "Reasonable follow on to Black Fleet"

    While this is a stand alone series it does follow the same characters as Black Fleet. Very good narration and reasonable storyline. Will need to reserve some comments to see where next book in series goes. This first book did not cover a lot of ground.

    Story
    "Good old jackson wolf back again!"

    Liked the book, read all books in the black fleet series. Seems pikes voice has changed by the narriator and some of the characters have the voice of jackson as well at times making it hard to tell who is talking. None of these issues existed on the 3 black fleet books leading me to believe the narriator was not as into the work as the three prior.

    Story was good.

    "Very, very good!"

    If you liked the Black Fleet trilogy you will like this. If anything its better. My only wish is that there was a way to find out how long until the next book is released by Audible.

    If you could sum up New Frontiers in three words, what would they be?

    Keep them coming!


    Any additional comments?

    This my first exposure to this author and narrator. This book is very well written, and the performance was outstanding. I want more books from the author. The next book's audio needs to be released ASAP.

    "Another addictive story!"

    For about 10 seconds I thought to myself, perhaps after such an action packed trilogy this story would have to take it slow. Boy was I wrong. I think New Frontiers rivals the joy of book 1-2 of the initial series. You have the same great mix of discovery, fear, and combat. Great stuff. Can't wait to hear what happens next!

    save your money first book of trilogy isn't the first book of this story characters jumping in with history and many references to an earlier story line. I hate that.
