Revue de presse

“To round out what makes the Lost Fleet series, and Steadfast in particular, great reading is the characters...Fans of the Honor Harrington series, Star Wars or Star Trek, or any other military science fiction series will enjoy [this] series.”—Sporadic Reviews

“[Steadfast] was emotional, humorous, packed with social commentary, and we got to see more space battles where the combatants take every advantage they could out of the laws of physics.”—Amazing Stories

Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times bestselling author Jack Campbell’s action-packed Lost Fleet series has propelled readers from deep space to the very edge of their seats. Now Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary embarks on a thrilling new adventure to defend the Alliance and safeguard the future.
 
Geary and the crew of the Dauntless have managed to safely escort important alien representatives to Earth. But before they can make tracks for home, two of Geary’s key lieutenants vanish. The search for his missing men leads Geary on a far-flung chase, ultimately ending at the one spot in space from which all humans have been banned: the moon Europa. Any ship that lands there must stay or be destroyed—leaving Geary to face the most profound moral dilemma of his life.
 
To make matters worse, strains on the Alliance are growing as the Syndics continue to meddle. Geary is ordered to take a small force to the border of Syndic space. But what he finds there is a danger much greater than anyone expected: a mysterious threat that could finally force the Alliance to its knees.
 
As Geary spearheads a desperate battle to protect the Alliance against a shrewd and powerful enemy, he’s left with just one question: Who are they?

L’Amiral Geary fait du tourisme avec sa femme sur la terre de ses ancêtres, la Terre. Hélas cette dernière n’est pas plus épargnée que les autres par les intrigues politiques et il leur faut écourter leur séjour sous la menace des armes.

Ils découvriront alors l’envers du décors d’une Terre certes pacifiée et croulant sous les contrôles et les règlements mais tout aussi infestée de pirates. En l’occurrence ceux-ci proviennent de Mars et ils comptent bien monnayer chèrement les deux Officiers qu’ils ont réussi à kidnapper.

Cette aventure les mènera jusqu’à la surface d’Europa, la lune maudite à jamais interdite d’accès du fait de la contamination par un agent infectieux créé par l’homme.

Ce n’est que le premier des multiples obstacles qui vont se dresser de nouveau sur le chemin de Black Jack. Des missions impossibles, des moyens toujours insuffisants jusqu’à la révélation finale de l’arme secrète que les politiques de l’Alliance ont tous approuvé pour empêcher Black Jack de prendre un pouvoir qu’il ne veut pourtant pas … une arme taillée pour détruire Geary et sans doute celle qui aura le plus de chance d'y arriver.

Bon, si j'en dis plus, vous allez me haïr !

Un tome d’attente, voire de remplissage dans lequel l’auteur révèle enfin le secret de la Flotte secrète mais qui laisse le lecteur sur un énorme cliffhanger.

Il y aura des plaintes

Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The latest episode in a long series, the writing remains taut, clean and adventuresome. A complex universe requires a long time to describe, and while I prefer stories that wrap up fairly quickly, say two or three books, this is one of those narratives that requires greater depth and profound examination of characters.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Black jack vs supervilain 30 mai 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
La série lost fleet est hautement addictive, même si elle reprend toutes les grosses ficelles du genre: le super héro, infaillible, demi-dieu contre les (super) méchants de tout ordre. Il faut noter quelques réflexions politiques sur les différents systèmes et organisations humaines qui sont un peu simplistes mais méritent quand même d'exister. Le point fort étant les combats spatiaux et les opérations militaires qui sont d'un niveau bien supérieur à ce qui se fait habituellement. Ce dernier opus est dans la lignée de ce qui précède incluant des parties maintien de la paix et des aspects un peu différents des livres précédents

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Addition to the Series, But Not The Best 11 mai 2014
Par kpc001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A good book, but one of my least favorites in the series. The first third of the book was a difficult read. The dialogue seemed disjointed at times and the prose difficult to get through. It didn't flow naturally. For example, the various meetings that Geary has with the politicians that accompanied his team to Earth had dialogue that seemed stilted and repetitive, and frankly didn't add too much to what we already knew about the politicians of the Alliance.

Once Campbell found himself dealing with matters that needed fixing by Geary, whether it was combat or personal interaction, the book picked up. Geary grows as a leader, using his ideals and conduct that seems "old fashioned" persuade people to take the "right" action, rather than the self-interested action. There's a bit of cartoonish general in the book that embodies the worst of the career bureaucrat that Geary neutralizes nicely.

One complaint I have about the book - it felt a bit like filler in the series. We've been told that there are forces in the Alliance that are being built to confront Geary and keep his influence in check, and that there is a leader waiting in the background to lead those forces. We don't see any of this in the book until nearly the end. The entire book is a bit of a set-up to perhaps a significant confrontation in the next book. While the story developed the main character, it felt a bit of letdown for the real showdown to be put off to at least the next volume.

One theme from the book that was clear was the author's message that a government keeping secrets against it's citizens is a government that is rotting from within. This point was hammered by Campbell so many times you have to wonder if he is making a statement about our current state of affairs. It's a theme he plays on greatly...too many secrets for the wrong reasons leading to disaster.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is It Still Good After 10 Volumes? Heck yes! 11 mai 2014
Par Talvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I had wondered in what direction the story would go after what seemed like an arc-ending plot in the previous book, Guardian (finding the Dancers and then bringing them to Earth). But in this book 4 of the Beyond the Frontier saga, author Campbell continues to impress and somehow manages to completely up the ante. But it isn't all new storyline: reoccurring themes such as the mystery of the 'dancing lights' in hyperspace, as well as newer plot developments of the secretly constructed new fleet are brought up here again and more tantalizing hints given. It makes for great space opera: overall story arcs across the entire series, smaller story arcs across subseries, and then several book-only arcs all weave together superbly.

Story: Geary is vacationing on Earth with Desjani, dealing with the homeworld's endless bureaucracy and paperwork. When two of the Dauntless' officers are kidnapped, Geary tracks them down to a world wiped clean by a man-made virus and then strictly quarantined. Meanwhile, he will also be sent on a seemingly insignificant errand to deal with Syndicate refugees. He's going to find that the Syndicate isn't quite done with him yet. And as for the Dancers - they are leaving tantalizing hints that something is very wrong in the universe. And at its heart, the Alliance itself.

All the usual battle scenes are here - with a surprising and inventive new battle at the end. There is also a lot of soul searching as Geary begins to realize he might just be guided by the Living Stars after all. Themes such as his reliance and growth from Rione and Desjani are given new light when he is separated from the Dauntless and instead accompanies Duellos on a seemingly futile mission. And an old menace from the very first book makes a reappearance to cause mayhem.

I have to hand it to Campbell for creating yet a new, highly significant, and very dangerous enemy by the end of this book. He will, literally, have to completely change everything he does/knows about warfare if he hopes to survive. And, of course, his reliance on his officers is now especially important.

The one thing you can count on with Campbell's books are the many Chekhov's Guns throughout most of the early parts of each book. I was greatly surprised this time and didn't spot any of them until the reveals at the end. Some are subtle, some are obvious, but all show the thought that goes into the writing of each of these series.

The question is: in this 10th book in the overall series, are the plots/books still fresh and do we still have all the great space opera action, human characters, and unique plots? And the answer is an unequivocal yes. I eagerly await the next book - and until then will continue to follow the Midway-set Lost Stars series as well (which had an appearance in this book).

Note: I chose the Audible version of this story and it continues with the same narrator as all the previous books.

Par Kevin P. Griffis - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the formula to write a Lost Fleet sequel. Step one: Copy and paste paragraphs wholesale from the original book and any other sequels already written. Step two: Make sure to have Geary complain about being Black Jack and not understand why people look up to him. Step three: Finish the book before you get anywhere approaching a resolution. Step four: Make sure to charge a ridiculous sum of money for it.

I've purchased all the other Lost Fleet books. Some have been interesting. The alien exploration books have had a unique feel to them as well. However, the novels are increasingly repetitive. I have seen the same description of meeting room software, almost word for word identical, in EVERY SINGLE BOOK up to this point. Geary has complained about being seen as Black Jack, voicing the same objections in an almost identical manner in EVERY SINGLE BOOK up to this point.

Previous books have included commercials for the other series, Lost Stars. This book has its commercial as well. "How could people support such a system?" has been asked time and time and time again in each book since the Lost Stars series was announced.

I'm definitely getting ripped off on pricing. You're sending me a digital file. There are no paper or ink costs, there is no cost of binding, or shipping, or physical storage. Paying $12.99 is a ripoff. Paying $6.99 is a ripoff. I feel like what I've paid for the other books should be taken into account with how much content in this book is just copy/paste. I think this one should be free. And of course this book ends with the big hook for The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: The Pursuit Of More Money.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More action packed SF in the Lost Fleet series! 7 mai 2014

Black Jack Geary and his lovely bride, Captain Tanya Desjani, finally have some time to be away from the ship and to be a married couple, enjoying the sights of old Earth with tours of the Great Wall, Stonehenge and …. wait a minute, some of their sailors have been kidnapped and the couple is hustled off in the middle of the night to prevent their own kidnapping. As they flee Earth (their belated honeymoon cut short), they are dogged by stealth ships trying to corral them. Oh, and those kidnapped sailors? They end up in the worst place in the universe where simply getting too close is a death sentence. How will our intrepid heroes save themselves and their doomed crew members?

So begins Jack Campbell’s latest installment of his Black Jack sage, The Lost Fleet: Beyond The Frontier: Steadfast. And this is just the warm up in the first few chapters! No one can accuse Jack Campbell of taking too long to get the ball rolling. If you like Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet, you will not be disappointed with the latest installment.

Black Jack, though hero of the Alliance, is also the thing the ruling elite fear the most. Black Jack is so popular that the ruling elite know that the populace would happily chuck them onto the trash heap and elevate Jack Geary as the leader of a new Alliance, a job he has no interest in. Needless to say this is not something that sits nicely with those who have lived comfortably while sending generations of their people off to die in a never ending war. The problem is how do you manage to take Black Jack down without causing the very uprising that you are desperately striving to prevent? They have tried time and again to stack the deck so heavily against him with missions that no man could possibly survive. But he always manages to find a solution to the Gordian knots presented to him. Why won’t the man have the decency to die and become a legend again instead of a flesh and blood man whose mere existence threatens them so?

In this installment, The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: Steadfast, the Alliance’s ultimate plan to contain the threat they perceive Black Jack to be is finally revealed. All the suggestions of the Alliance’s dark plan against their own hero are finally revealed. Black Jack must face down an enemy that is literally as crafty and intelligent as Black Jack. Not only has Black Jack met the enemy but that enemy has more ships, more speed, more guns and more armor. Black Jack will need to save the Alliance from their own schemes but only if he can survive himself in Steadfast.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not the Best in the Series 7 juin 2014
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
When you're reading a Lost Fleet book you come into it knowing there will be long stretches of talking about battles, light minutes, and politics. More often than not the rest of the story makes up for those slow and plodding sections of the story, but with Steadfast that just wasn't the case. I actually put this book away to finish two other shorter novels because I became too bored with it, but I wanted to finish and I'm glad I did. This book is sort of like your favorite genre TV series that has to be stretched over 20+ episodes: it starts out great, slows down in the middle half of the episodes, and then picks up toward the end. This book seemed like filler episodes of a TV series. Here's hoping the next novel lives up to what was being built in this one.
