Summary

The pulsar...an ancient weapon of unimaginable power, one that threatens the Confederation with total destruction. The Union is preparing for the final invasion, one that cannot fail with the great artifact at the head of their fleet. The clock is ticking quickly toward midnight.

There is a chance to avoid annihilation, a small one. The Confederation has its own ancient device recovered from the Badlands, a stealth generator. It is not as powerful as the pulsar, but it just may be enough.

The generator can hide a single vessel, so Tyler Barron and the crew of Dauntless reunite to take their aging battleship once more into the breach. They will go to the Bottleneck, the system where the Union is preparing the final assault. They must sneak around the vast forces of the Union fleet, into the heart of the massively defended system, and somehow destroy the pulsar.

The fleet will be with them, all the might the Confederation can muster, but success hinges almost entirely on Dauntless' desperate attack. And even if Barron and his people succeed in their mission, they will be trapped behind the enemy fleet, cut off and alone.

Dauntless is book six of the Blood on the Stars series. Blood on the Stars will continue with The White Fleet.

Space opera for holiday reading

I've followed the series this far but will not continue. Enjoyable, simple page turner but there is not enough going on to maintain interest. Very similar quality to Evan Curries Odyssey One series, which I have also now given up.

The Way is the Way

This is one of those series that you have to follow, and it seems to get better and better, although this last book had some very sad moments.

If you like your sci-fi with full on action, then this series will not disappoint.

Best Sci-fi series

This book was a bit predictable but it is still the best Sci-fi series still in production. Jeffrey Kafer could read the phone book and make it sound interesting

Nothing really new at all....sort of shake & bake

I guess I am done with this series until something new happens that because it is sort of bland story anymore.

Outstanding continuing saga

This novel continues the plot,character development, emotions and thrills of the BOTS series. It leaves you satisfied and a little sad. All in all a great read/listen. Kafer is excellent as always. Thankfully the next book is out. And I can’t wait to read/listen to it.

Became a bit too predictable at times

Jay Allan's Blood on the Stars series is Grade A military sci fi. This book got lazy on a couple points - the specifics of Baron's and Dauntless' troubles were predictable based on previous books in the series. I wish Allan had been more creative with how their troubles arose during the climactic battle.

The ending was shocking and the book well-written, so I only knocked one star off for the story - because it is still a good installment in a great space military sci fi series.

Worst of the series

When you can skip entire chapters because the next chapter does a recap of the previous chapter from a different characters point of view,. the book was too long for the plot and had way too many characters. I personally didn't like the Jake Stockton arc, but that is probably just me.
