Overview

The Alliance woke Captain John “Black Jack” Geary from cryogenic sleep to take command of the fleet in the century-long conflict against the Syndicate Worlds. Now, Admiral Geary’s victory has earned him the adoration of the people—and the enmity of politicians convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing…

The war may be over, but Geary and his newly christened First Fleet have been ordered back into action to investigate the aliens occupying the far side of Syndic space and determine how much of a threat they represent to the Alliance. And while the Syndic Worlds are no longer united, individually they may be more dangerous than ever before.

Geary knows that members of the military high command and the government question his loyalty to the Alliance and fear him staging a coup—so he can’t help but wonder if the fleet is being deliberately sent on a suicide mission…

Essay

We’re thrilled to share the next book (and first hardcover) in Jack Campbell’s military science fiction series, The Lost Fleet. With gripping space battles and strong characterization written by a retired Naval officer who knows his stuff, this is a terrific military series that has it all. Dreadnaught begins a new story arc—a brand-new adventure for reluctant hero John “Black Jack” Geary—so it’s a great book to try, whether you’re new to the series or not.
