    1. The story of Admiral Geary the Lost Fleet comes to a close. Wracked by massive losses in the war, and with their economy pushed to the brink, the Syndicate worlds collapse into chaos. Star system after star system is engulfed in Civil War. Into this fray, the newly promoted Fleet Admiral Geary leads the Alliance forces to the Syndicate home system for the final battle to end this hundred year war.The remnants of the Syndicate fleet are waiting for Geary. They are led by the same ruthless, cunnin [...]


    2. Finally, it is over. This series should have been half the size it ended up being. Why, because it repeated. Then the next failing of the author, it repeated. So all these extra pages, were just rehashes of scenes that had already taken place with a new noun to show that it was a different place, but the same thing happening, or all the characters talking about how that thing that happened before was just like this, or do you remember the thing that happened, let me refresh your memory by descri [...]


    3. Okay. book, great series. I almost went down to 4 stars because of the continuing underlying love story, the unspoken (because of honor) love of Black Jack ("I'm not Black Jack") for the Captain. Still, handled well and I got passed it. At least it wasn't still with our resident politician who has been one of the great annoyances in this series, neither did the love story overwhelm the storyline. Still one of the better military/semi-space opera reads I've come across. Dealing with two long stan [...]


    4. What a boring book! That final battle with the Syndics was like seeing grass grow - mostly because they had to just wait, wait, wait. If it hadn't been for Geary almost getting arrested - yup, that's the thanks he got after saving the Fleet! - and the showdown with the aliens, Victorious would have been nothing to write about. I really like how Mr. Campbell brings politics into the action. I'm so naïve that it would have never occurred to me that Geary was in so much danger after all he did! I [...]


    5. At last – it’s come to this. The final instalment in the Lost Fleet series, except I see there is a new sequence that’s just kicked off with Dreadnaught. Not quite sure what that is about even though I can garner a good guess, but for now, this is where the metal meets the meat. For a final book in a military Sci-Fi series, Victorious is perhaps a bit subdued, at first glance. There are none of the huge space battles, which pretty much defined the series up to this point, for the full firs [...]


    6. Ce sixième tome clôture réellement (par opposition aux fausses fins de par exemple la pénible sage d'Honor Harrington) les aventures de Jack Geary, capitaine (et ensuite amiral) de la flotte, qui a botté les fesses des syndics à peu près partout où il passait, pour finir par les forcer à la paix dans leur système spatial central. Evidement, la bataille sera monumentale, mais elle ne sera rien à côté de deux phénomèmes si typiques de ce genre de SF : l'attaque des méchants extra [...]


    7. Originally posted at FanLit:fantasyliterature/reviVictorious is the sixth and last book in Jack Campbell’s original LOST FLEET series. (If you haven’t read the previous books, you’ll want to read them before reading this review.)Captain Black Jack Geary and the Alliance fleet have finally arrived, battered and bruised, to their home in the Alliance system and Geary’s feet touch ground for the first time in 100 years. Not surprisingly, the Alliance senate is leery of Geary (ugh, that rhym [...]


    8. The 6 books in this series (the lost fleet) could probably be compressed into two or three books. Each paperback is about 300 pages long, but it feels that much less is happening in each book than the number of pages would suggest.The strategic parts and the description of battles near light speed are really thought provoking, fun, and easily the best part of the series.On the other hand, the characters (with a few exceptions) are poor, and the romantic subplots are even worse. The author's idea [...]


    9. What a joy these books were to read. All out action, I've started the next series but will take it slow cause I need a break from full on scifi.




    10. Despite numerous losses and having had to face one perilous situation after another, the Fleet has finally made it back to Alliance space and the ruling council, despite fearing a military coup, has chosen to trust Geary and promotes him to Fleet Admiral. The new rank comes with authorization to launch one (hopefully) final attack against the Syndic home system and negotiate an end to the war. Even if the fleet prevails in this encounter, however, a new and potentially far more dangerous enemy r [...]


    11. This is the final book of the “Lost Fleet” series featuring Captain “Black Jack” Geary, and as such, it has a lot of wrapping up to do. The Lost Fleet has finally made it home, Captain Geary has left a trail of destroyed and/or embarrassed Syndicate war ships in his wake, and it is time to see what is next. Geary has built such a fine reputation over the course of bringing the Lost Fleet home and has built so much power that he could, if he so chooses, take over and become the political [...]


    12. The last in the series and I can say that it ended well. Just a bit of comment about the overall series first. These six books could have been reduced to five or even four. Really I wouldn't have been disappointed with three. But I did enjoy them for most part. The characters were repeating themselves a little too much, kind of like an old married couple that has been having the same argument for years. The love triangle was getting a little worn out. But enough of that negativity. The space bat [...]


    13. Victorious is a good conclusion to Jack Campbell's The Lost Fleet series, turning it from being about a war against a human enemy to being the beginning of a conflict with an alien one. There were a few times that that turning point felt a little anticlimactic because almost all the fighting that brings an end to the war happens in the first five books, but the final battle in the Syndic home system was plenty serious enough to at least make the Alliance victory satisfying. Although (view spoile [...]


    14. Earth is at war with the Syndic. Who are human just like you and me but take an entirely different perspective on what is right and wrong. What’s right is anything that financially or politically benefits them. What’s wrong is everything else.What started this war that has been going on for 100 years ? No one seems to remember but the important thing is to destroy the other guy. And that’s the premise for the entire series of 6 books, recently expanded to 7 although on a different story ar [...]


    15. The final book in the Lost Fleet series clears up all of the threads that have been lurking. We finally get to an end of the war between the Alliance and the Syndicate, and Jack Campbell does it in such a way that it is never really obvious what is going to happen. The book starts after "Black Jack"'s return to Alliance space and after he saves what is left of the Alliance fleet at Varandal from the Syndicate, but there are members fo the Grand Council who think, despite his protests that he doe [...]


    16. The conclusion of the original six-book arc of Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" series ties up the main ends in a satisfying way. Another plus is that the overall quality of the books has continued to grow. The space battles, which are the main driving force of the series, are kept interesting by constantly changing strategies and tactics, and situations. Not only does this one tie up the war with the Syndics, but also opens the way for the follow-up series, "Beyond the Frontier". One small caveat I [...]


    17. I'm really sorry to see this series end. It has been an enjoyable ride since the very first book. I've loved to watch all the myriad ways that Black Jack Geary has pulled the Alliance fleet's butt out of the fire time and again. The series has been realistic in that not everyone lives but it hasn't been so maudlin and depressing with everyone dieing so that you couldn't enjoy it either.This book started a little slow but once they left Alliance space and headed out things picked right up. Good s [...]


    18. Good wrap up, and about what you'd expect given the series so far. Jack Campbell manages to surprise me, now and then. And I like that, though sometimes I can't believe how clueless Geary can be. (view spoiler)[Like, a battleship and two cruisers hovering near a far-off jump point in the Syndic home system screams "fleeing leaders" to me, but I didn't think of the in-hindsight-obvious mod to the safe-fail system on the hypernet gate that made that positioning so horrific. (hide spoiler)]Edit: Wh [...]


    19. My rating for the first 5 books in Jack Campbell's The Lost Fleet series has been 3 stars. For this last book in the series I have raised it to 4! Reading this last book I get why I stayed with this series. I felt that the focus was a lot of military maneuvering and battle plans and yet what kept me reading was the drive and heart of the main character, Black Jack Geary. What I discovered underneath the military science fiction was a love story! Love of the military, love of honor and a code of [...]


    20. Such mixed reviews for this series. I enjoyed it, but it's not a perfect series. There is quite a bit of repetition, Senator Rione is quite annoying until the last book and as others have said the love interest is a bit highschoolish in the way they love but can't because of their honour. That said I agree that it would be unprofessional for the admiral and a captain to date. The end was pretty good, left it on a high but with prep for the next series.


    21. This is a good end to the first series. For all the space battles, for all the technology and minutely described conflicts it is a story of love, honour and duty. Also helps that the battles are exciting.


    22. This brought everything together and felt good to see the team use intelligence and compassion, in addition to courage. It ends this series well and sets the stage for the next related series. I've really enjoyed these.





    23. Victorious, how aptly named, in that that’s pretty much the only thing that happened, victory. Yay? Well, no. Not yay because it’s not interesting. The odds throughout the story continually change drastically in the favor of the Alliance fleet to the point where nothing is a real challenge anymore, and anything that potentially posed itself as a problem was either too big to actually fight or an act of deception. It’s impossible to fight the story-equivalent of a nuclear bomb once it’s a [...]


    24. VictoriousThe Lost Fleet Book 6By Jack CampbellA Review by Eric AllenI promised a real review on the final book of The Lost Fleet, no matter how much repeating of points made in my review of the first book I may have to do, and here it is.After months of fighting their way through Syndic space, the Alliance Fleet under the command of Captain Geary has at last reached home. His fleet is all but out of fuel, has sustained massive damage, and taken heavy losses. But in doing so, they have crippled [...]


    25. What can you say about a book you finish in 1 day, after skimming through at least 100 pages?The goodThe story finally has a somewhat satisfying end, though a bit anticlimactic and we have a setup for the next series and a showdown with the aliens.The bad All the annoying parts of the previous 5 books are still here: repetition of previously read discussions, unending "talk" about the honor of Geary and Desjani - for something they haven't done, unending talk about their feelings for eachother, [...]
