Review by Jonathan on 26th April, 2011
 
4 stars "Ender?"

Quite enjoyed this book, Not a particularly challenging read, but some interesting characters and plenty of space combat action.

Reminds me somewhat of Ender's game (Orson Scott Card) Mixed with a little bit of Battlestar Galactica / Star Trek Voyager.

I'll be giving the next book in the series a shot.

 
 
Review by Linda on 25th August, 2011
 
5 stars "Very readable action-packed Sci-Fi Novel"

Military Science Fiction officionado's would agree that author Jack Campbell's series – starring “hero” Black Jack Geary – is a stunning entry into the genre…and a worthy successor to the other great Military Sci-Fi writers, such as David Weber & Elizabeth Moon.
Black Jack is a very likeable character, and Campbell's des­criptions of space & space warfare are very involved & entertaining without being too technical. Certainly recommend you start this series, and continue on to the end – mainly because the reader needs to find out what happens in future for this particular hero! I am certainly going to persevere & buy all of the books in the series when I can – all 12 of them!!

Description

The Alliance has been fighting the Syndic for a century--and losing badly. Now its fleet is crippled and stranded in enemy territory. Their only hope is Captain John "Black jack" Geary--a man who's emerged from a century-long hibernation to find he has been heroically idealized beyond belief. Now, he must live up to his own legend.

Review

"In the first of what looks to be a new series, Campbell (a pseudonym of John G. Henry of the Stark's War trilogy), introduces legendary Captain Black Jack Geary, back from the dead (so to speak) after being rescued from his survival capsule launched over 100 years before. The war continues and the Alliance is not faring well. The Syndics once again have the Alliance fleet surrounded and after executing all Alliance officers, they expect that fleet personnel will become fodder for their mining operations. Captain Geary assumes command, and miraculously extricates the fleet. Thus begins a hide-and-seek jaunt around the galaxy, as Jack tries to elude the Syndics long enough to retrain the Alliance fleet in basic unified maneuvers (a skill lost over the years with the loss of experienced officers and their replacement by younger and younger new troops). Ending with an obvious set up for the next installment, Jack has so far eluded the Syndics, but has also discovered that the Syndics may have originally started the war as a response to an encounter with nonhuman intelligences. A good, solid military space action/adventure novel." KLIATT
