    1. These books are awesome.No, seriously! This was the least interesting one so far, and was weaker than all the others. But it still is a fun series.This could have been one of the better books in the Lost Fleet series. It started out so well, but then rapidly deteriorated. Still, I thoroughly enjoy these books and will keep following the series.


    2. Honestly, I've really liked Campbell's Lost Fleet series: up until this one. The stories have become just the same old, same old, with very little advancement of the story arc. Geary has one thing after another come flying his way, mostly machinations of the politico's of the Alliance. Some are just butt-covering superiors getting "black Jack" to get them out of a mess, others are obvious maneuverings to reduce Geary's influence while advancing hidden agendas.The "agendas" are still hidden, Gear [...]


    3. This was a really disappointing entry in the lengthy series, unlucky 13. (4th of the Beyond the Frontier sequel series to the 6-part Lost Fleet series and 13th overall, including the Lost Stars sequels/spinoff.)Peace is Hell, apparently, especially for military sci-fi authors. This book rambles on without any real theme, seemingly searching for a storyline to follow. Instead, there are a series of small and mostly unrelated events, almost like a collection of short stories sewn together.We have [...]


    4. I said when Campbell started the second series featuring Jack Geary I did not see how he could keep the same level of tension that he had in the first set of books. After reading the first Beyond the Frontier books I admitted he has succeeded. I was expecting the same in Steadfast but it just was not there. What was there was information needed for the story to continue but it just was not exciting. I kept reading expecting the book to pick up but it did not until the very end. That part was exc [...]


    5. This is military science fiction done well! Not too political, not just all space combat - Jack Campbell hits all the right notes with the Black Jack Geary series.In my opinion, Campbell outdoes Weber at military science fiction. Whereas Weber's excellent Honor Harrington series gets deep into the political actions of well, absolutely everyone who ever took a breath, Campbell's Lost Fleet series keeps the long-winded political machinations to a minimum. Oh, you'll still get interstellar politics [...]


    6. Really three and a half but as I have said before I can't make it a half here.Good action, could have some more suspense in some of the battles. But other things are happening too so it is not all combat. Some twists in this book too. The descriptions are good too.A good book but I don't think a great one. But still if you like space opera and that type read this one-after you catch up to it in the series. Lets of good action in the various books before this one. Surprises too.


    7. This series is starting to get boring, but i guess it was kind of expected after ten books. I belive the problem is the author is becoming too formulaic. It is very easy to see how plots will unfold when they are presented to you. The book becomes interesting only very near to it's end. A very interesting plot twist is presented at that point, one that can force a huge change for Black Jack. However, two things made me completly pissed off with the ending. First, the situation is resolved again [...]


    8. I really enjoyed this latest installment in the series. Black Jack goes from one mess to another, and his enemies aren't always the ones he's expecting. Lots of twists and turns and space battles. The series is going in an intriguing direction.Reviewed for Bitten by Books. bittenbybooks.



    9. Steadfast continues on from the previous book with Geary and Tanja stopping off at earth and in the process getting introduced to other nations both beyond the Sol System and on Earth itself which is still heavily divided! :D The scenes with the Dancers along with the others are brilliantly played with the aliens showing the best in humanity! :D We also get more in depth look at what has happened to Earth over the years and this lays down plot points that will no doubt pop up in other books! :DS [...]


    10. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/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 [...]


    11. Unfortunately it is my opinion that this series is loosing steam. The original series, The Lost Fleet, had a purpose and a goal. Every book advanced the story towards that goal and they were generally quite enjoyable to read. This follow-up series, Beyond The Frontier, started well enough but already the second book felt like it was going downhill and the previous book in the series was not all that impressive. Unfortunately this one follows the same trend.As I wrote, the book is not really goin [...]


    12. OK. “Uncle”. Campbell, you win. I hoped that this was last book in the series – which I have very much enjoyed – but I just want to know how it ends already! Don’t you dare read this book without prior series knowledge! It picks up right where the prior book ended (on old earth). The living legend, Black Jack Geary, the hero who saved the Alliance, is the conquering hero – yet still disdaining political power. (Darn. He’s near perfect.) Following the cessation of a century long war [...]


    13. I was eager to read this, as I have been for the rest of the series. It should have been half as long, not to mention half as expensive. Whether it's the publisher or , someone in real life is getting as greedy in publishing this book as are some fictional politicians in the book. I have paperback or hardback editions of everything in both the Lost Fleet and Lost Stars series--until now. I got the audio version, but unless the price drops, won't get a physical copy this time. As for the story, i [...]


    14. I think the series is fumbling a bit here because of over extension. Especially after the dramatic conclusion of the last, for all its drama, this one is a bit episodic. (I think it picks up a continuing thread toward the end for the next books.)But we have adventures on Earth, where people try to assassinate or exploit their venture, the discovery of a plot to foment dissension among the armed forces, a mission, nominally to contain a refugee problem, that actually goes much deeper, and finally [...]


    15. Steadfast is book 4 of the Lost Fleet:Beyond the Frontier series by Jack Campbell. It is better than book 3 but I'm still not understanding what the goal is here. The story: Jack Black and his wife, Captain Tanya Desjani are still on Earth visiting the sights and they learn lessons there that will help them understand a mysterious force that is attacking what is left of the Syndicate Worlds and the Alliance itself.Any problems with this book? It seems to be two novelettes in one book. There is t [...]


    16. 5 Oct Oh boy, the boredom factor is strong in this one.Old Earth and Europa were interesting but now, it's a slog and I'm skimming. Heading for 2 stars - if I ever finish it.8 Oct Ok, finally finished it. 60-85% was a drag. Thankfully, the last 10-15% picked up but it was an obvious set up for another book.2.5 stars


    17. Admiral Geary now taking side quest missions from NPCs in this book based on lost fleet Role playing game. well this summarize my feeling about steadfast. worst book so far in series with no doubt.


    18. I just read nearly 400 pages (to be honest, started skimming towards the end) with darn near zero plot/story development. Getting a little old - not like anyone's reading these for the writing, which is simply adequate. This is book TEN - what's he aiming for, 20?


    19. The first third of this book was just.he second , plain boringand the last part was good. Almost right there with most of the series. All of it written very decently , I might add. :)The narration, excellent .


    20. Advanced the overall story a bit, but the plot wasn't that great, except the ending was quite fun and convinced me to try the next book. But if it can't convince me I think I stop the series there, it get's just too repetitive.



    21. I will give this a 3.5. If you are into this series, you won't want to miss this one. As usual, the ending is a obvious setup for the next one.


    22. I really like this series. I like that the author takes physics into account in the battle scenes. I also like the characters.


    23. It's been a while since I've read a "Lost Fleet" book and this one seemed like a transition between the previous novel and the next one, without a cohesive story of its own. In the beginning Black Jack and part of the Alliance fleet are in the Sol star system, having accompanied the alien "Dancers" to old Earth. Two officers are kidnapped by unknown forces and taken to the quarantined moon Europa, where a deadly incurable plague was once released, leading to the quarantine. Geary manages to resc [...]


    24. 8th entry in the Black Jack Geary series; plenty of space battles and even some planet-based action keep things moving, but the best parts are the debates and internal struggles concerning honor and what values are important. Geary visits Old Earth with the Dancers, who are returning the body of an early human explorer to his home to honor his bravery. Visiting the source of the ancestors Geary and his culture revere has meaning for him and his Fleet, but not the answers he was hoping for. He ch [...]


    25. Steadfast is the fourth book of the second series (9th book in total) so the only one reading this should probably be fans. Personally, I think this is among the best of the Military Sci Fi I have ever read and will keep reading Jack Campbell books as long as he keeps writing them.Among the best thing is that the quality hasn't wavered. The series still surprises me, the characters are still interesting and the challenges 'Black' Jack Geary remain . . . well . . . challenging.This book starts on [...]


    26. “I looked at them old dead monsters, and I said, it's a good thing they stopped them. And my dad looked at me and said, No, it's a good thing they had to stop them because if they hadn’t, we might have made one's a lot bigger before we learned our lesson.” (Jack 14) This quote is one of the best comments in the book because it talks about what happened during the war before. When I read his book I always thought about what I would do in that situation and I always felt like I really was in [...]
