Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Science Fiction, 2013

Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary earned his rank after being revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance to victory against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, Geary is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet - and himself - in harm's way.

An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary's fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems - only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring all of the First Fleet's attempts to communicate peaceful intentions, this system's species sends its ships into battle on suicide runs while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power.

Now, with a faction of his officers determined to eliminate this new threat at any cost, Geary must figure out how to breach the enemy's defenses so the fleet can reach the jump point without massive casualties - even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side.

BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author Jack Campbell.

Campbell Strikes Again

I really enjoyed the book. This space adventure just keeps going. The latest book adds more than it closes and The Christan Rummel's narration is as always first class. .

If i say anything about the story it may spoil it for people. All i will said is that these books are some of the best spent money i have used in sometime.

Cant wait for the next book

Great journey, excellent narration

This is an enjoyable story narrated by the excellent Christian Rummel. Geary and the first fleet continue their journey beyond the frontier learning more about the enigma race and encountering new alien races. If you liked the other books in this series you will like this one. I've given it four rather than five stars because the author can get quite repititive with things like how technology works - if I hear one more time how the meeting software works!

Getting even better

I have read all the earlier books and enjoyed them. The introduction of the aliens at this stage gives new life to the series. Finally non human aliens! Great that the least likely ones are the good guys so far at least.

Some days I wish my commute was longer!

Possibly the best Lost Fleet book so far, and it's even getting a bit funny at times as well. The performance has also reached a new peak! More please!

A brillant insight into humans

What made the experience of listening to Invincible: The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier, Book 2 the most enjoyable?

The realism, Peoples reactions, and the details that Jack Campbell manages to form into words.

Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favourite?

"Black Jack" Geary

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Couldn't stop listening to it, Always wanting to know what happens next. Ive listened to all of the First series and will need to do the same for this I think.
