" 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?"--… (mais)

Too much conspiracies and almost no sci-fi ( )
  FirstSpeaker | Apr 16, 2021 |
This "episode" begins a bit slowly…with some unconvincing danger and unthrilling excitement. Then it progresses with some interesting, if not exciting, filler. And finally finishes with a very convincing cliff-hanging ending that sets us up for the next novel. ( )

Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary managed to get the Dancers back to Alliance space safely. Then they had a request. They wanted to visit Lyons, Kansas, but they wouldn't say why. Things go wrong in a variety of ways, but they're all mostly okay and ready to head back. And then the Dancers leave on another mission. Geary is asked to look after a backwater area of space experiencing a lot of troubles after the war - and finds a force capable of destroying the Alliance.

Steadfast was interesting because it had a lot going on, but not all at once. I liked this book the most in this series to date. This one had at least three major plots that happened throughout the book. It happened to make the story so much more interesting for me.

The first part is Earth, where two separate things start at once. Geary is bringing the Dancers to Earth for some mysterious task. It is actually really quite amazing, and I love it to pieces, but I won't share what it is. But that starts the "just what the hell do the Dancers want with us" arc that spans across the entire book and beyond. The Dancers aren't communicating to their full potential and now they're going off to do their own thing. It is a bit worrisome, but they do appear to be allies.

The second part is that Earth system isn't as wholesome as they had hoped. It is still broken by wars. Mars is a bit of a nightmare planet. And then there is Europa which we have already heard about. A moon that has been completely been put off limits because of an escaped virus. And they have to rescue two of their crew members from there. Interesting development. Then there is the "ha ha funny - not" portion, where the Sol system is a nightmare of bureaucracy and "has too many lawyers". Yes, super funny. Look at all my laughing. Oh all you hear is silence? Imagine that.

When they get back to Alliance space, the politicians have a new task for Geary. There is a small planet near the border with the Syndicate that they want Geary to help. Newly Ex-Syndicate peoples are flocking to this planet as refugees. The planet doesn't have money or forces to solve the problem. So they send Geary and a small portion of the fleet, with no resources or money of his own to work with, only his brains. I am getting really tired of the sheer incompetence of everyone in this series other than Geary and those he has trained. They cannot possibly be the only ones in the entire Alliance that can get things done. The Alliance would have collapsed years ago if that were true. I'm also really tired of Geary having to continually say he isn't going to take over the Alliance. At this point I feel like it is the only way to save everything is for him to take over. Holy hell how is everyone incompetent?

This is also the first time Geary spends any time away from Desjani, and I really like this part of the story. Even if it was kind of uncomfortable to experience. It shows just how much Geary and Desjani work as a pair. I really like the relationship now. The whole Desjani vs. Rione thing is annoying as all hell and really, really old by now. However, Geary and Desjani are quite the pair and work well together.

There was just so much going on in Steadfast. The dancers, keeping the Syndicates from breaking entirely, supporting people breaking from the Syndicates, and keeping the Alliance government off their backs. I really appreciated it because this was the first book so far that I found I wasn't bored during large parts of it. It was just a complete break from what I've come to expect out of this series. Then something happens at the very end of the book, and I'm curious where it is going to take me. ( )

Some of the tension is lost in the first half with no clear antagonist and no clear direction to the story. Geary tools around the universe, doing a typically naval mission. Still exciting, but I feel cheated by the editor. Space/naval battles continue--are we going to see another? C'mon series--giddy-up! ( )

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 going anywhere. It is just one problem for Geary to solve after another and all of them are created by various more or less intelligent (usually less) political manipulators and career hunters. Geary has recently come back after having discovered not one but several civilisations, all of them travelling the stars but not all of them friendly. Even the dumbass politicians in these books should start to get concerned by this. But they continue with their political machinations as well as trying to cut corners and costs for the military.

To constantly read about these dumbass politicians, their screw-ups, the constantly failing hardware and Geary having to wade through this swamp of political nonsense seeing his fleet gradually being whittled down is tiresome and not at all fun reading. It is really a shame because when the action starts it is quite good. The fleet action is among the better ones around. So are the characters, at least the ones that are not in the political dumbass camp.

I really hope that this series will be shaping up and that the next instalment will bring not just be another string of screw-ups for Geary to solve, tone down the political BS and bring back some focus on a larger goal, preferably involving some of the aliens.

Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary, accustomed to gazing down upon world from hundreds of kilometers high and looking into the vastness of space in which a man could fall forever, felt slightly dizzy as he leaned over the crumbling remains of a stone wall to peer down the other side, where the land dropped away for about ten meters in a steep slope littered with rocks.
