Summary

A young fleet officer and a Marine must stand together to defend their neighbors and their colony in this return to the powerful and action-packed Genesis Fleet saga from New York Times best-selling author Jack Campbell. 

The recently colonized world of Glenlyon has learned that they're stronger when they stand with other star systems than they are on their own. But after helping their neighbor Kosatka against an invasion, Glenlyon has become a target. The aggressive star systems plan to neutralize Glenlyon before striking again. 

An attack is launched against Glenlyon's orbital facility with forces too powerful for fleet officer Rob Geary to counter using their sole remaining destroyer, Saber. Mele Darcy's Marines must repel repeated assaults while their hacker tries to get into the enemy systems to give Saber a fighting chance. 

To survive, Glenlyon needs more firepower, and the only source for that is their neighbor Kosatka or other star systems that have so far remained neutral. But Kosatka is still battling the remnants of the invasion forces on its own world, and if it sends its only remaining warship to help will be left undefended against another invasion. While Carmen Ochoa fights for the freedom of Kosatka, Lochan Nakamura must survive assassins as he tries to convince other worlds to join a seemingly hopeless struggle. 

As star systems founded by people seeking freedom and autonomy, will Kosatka, Glenlyon and others be able to overcome deep suspicions of surrendering any authority to others? Will the free star systems stand together in a new Alliance, or fall alone?

I've really enjoyed these books

I really enjoyed these books, except for the lost stars series, the narrator for those used different pronunciations of a lot of the names of main characters that took me out of the stories a bit but the books themselves are great, I think Christian Rummel is the perfect choice for narrator and I really hope he is the one to continue the series going further

Tears down my cheek

This series of 3 books has had me gripped all the way through, absolutely loved it, I will miss them all! Although I would love to find out that there are more stories to follow on this adventure, I also feel that then ending was a good one. Thank you to Jack Campbell for the awesome story and Christian Rummel for the outstanding performance that made me fall in love with the characters!

Goodies vs Baddies, Round 3

Lightweight space opera. Very easy listening that doesn't require too much concentration. Obvious and predictable characters and events. Well narrated.

Exciting

This is the third book in the Genesis Fleet Series. Jack Campbell is one of my favorite Sci-fi authors. With the invention of faster-than-light jump drives, people are moving father into the galaxy with all the complications that implies.

The book is well written. We have Campbell’s classic space battles. We also have some dilemmas to solve and the usual civilian political infighting. It is fun to learn about Black Jack Geary’s ancestors. I cannot wait for the next edition to come.

The book is nine hours and sixteen minutes. Christian Rummel does an excellent job narrating the book. Rummel is an actor and audiobook narrator. He has narrated all the various Fleet Series.

Another Winner!

Jack Campbell has another hit on his hands. Multiple plot lines that are well balanced, independently interesting, and intertwined in a manner that moves the story forward nicely. Could easily come up with a dozen more books that might carry the story forward all the way through to the List Fleet starting point.

Another trilogy

The epilogue was the rather light cherry on a weak whipped cream on a very avarage feelgood pie. Mr Rummel saved the experence for me. The trilogy gave me a kind of "St*r W*rs" prequel feel. A rushed , cash in before it spoils ending. Still, enjoyable if you're into the vibe. But alas, it didn't pan out for me like the previous books.

Top notch!

I really enjoyed the trilogy and encouraged me to take a look at the earlier books. There was good character development and the action was well done. I’d recommend it those interested in solid military sci-fi.

Disappointed

In my opinion, there was way too much political intrigue to make the story interesting! I realize that authors need to add "filler", but always hope it would be more action oriented!

Very Similar Story to Ascendant

I was very excited about this prequel to the Lost Fleet Series and the first book, Vanguard, did not disappoint. However, the second book, Ascendant seemed a little rushed compared to previous books but still set up the timeline and developments for future books - so I still enjoyed it even thought it lost a little something for me in the end.

Unfortunately, Triumphant seems to be a very similar story as Ascendant, but taking place in Glenn Lion as opposed to Kosatka and that really ruined the book for me. Every few chapters I waited from some new plot twist or a surprise change of events that would make it a unique story but it never happened.

The universe Mr. Campbell has created has be a great fictional escape and I strongly recommend his previous books, but this one just simple didn't do it for me.

Satisfying Conclusion

Loved this story and how it wraps up this series background. The large cast might be confusing without familiarity with prior works, but we needed them all. Campbell manages to escape repeating himself too much. Well done.
