Publisher's Summary

Starship Victory is on its loneliest mission yet. Captain Maddox and his crew are thousands of light-years from Earth, searching for the dreaded Swarm Imperium.

But there are androids among them seeking to use the starship for hidden purposes.

Maddox and the crew are on their own, facing perils inside the ship and terrifying alien dangers outside in one of the remotest regions of the Orion Arm. Then they stumble upon the darkest secret of all. Unless the A.I. Galyan, Meta, Sergeant Riker and the others can help their beleaguered captain, Victory is doomed and Earth will never learn of the terrible threat gathering in the stellar darkness.

The Lost Patrol is the fifth book in the Lost Starship Series.

Another great addition to the series

This story had a really interesting twist in it. For some this is a drawn out or slow paced series but I really enjoyed the pace and the details Vaughn puts into these stories. There characters are enjoyable and I look forward to the next book if one comes out.

Keep The Series Rolling

Great Continuation for a great series. The book answers many questions but does a masterful job in setting the stage for book six. All I can say is, "Bring it on".

Keeps getting better!

This is an excellent addition to an already outstanding series. The characters continue to grow, interesting new characters are introduced, and the plot continues to develop in interesting and unpredictable ways. An outstanding book, and I can't wait for the next one!

Binge listening to series

I’m really enjoying this series. There are wonderful plots and the characters are well developed. The narrator is amazing and you would think that there were different actors reading the story.

Another incredible addition to a great series

This series has become one of my all-time favorites.

It just keeps getting better and better, building upon the previous books in an amazingly absorbing fashion.

The author is at the top of his game, and Mark Boyette does his usual wonderful performance.

This series just keep getting better for me.

Narration was clear and well preformed. Both he and the story (writer) keep me listening on the edge of my seat.

I should point out that I've really come enjoy this series and may be a little biased.

Bearable

I am at a loss to understand why any captain of any ship would have Valerie anywhere near the bridge with her continual questioning of orders in front of crew and the enemy, let alone leave her in charge of a bridge! Perhaps you just can’t get the staff in the future!

The best keeps getting better.

Among my all time favourite sci-fi series keeps getting better. Wonderful array of plot elements, vast sweeping scale, in time and space.Never a dull moment. Superbly narrated.
