Overview

Admiral Geary’s First Fleet of the Alliance has survived the journey deep into unexplored interstellar space, a voyage that led to the discovery of new alien species, including a new enemy and a possible ally. Now Geary’s mission is to ensure the safety of the Midway Star System, which has revolted against the Syndicate Worlds empire—an empire that is on the brink of collapse.
 
To complicate matters further, Geary also needs to return safely to Alliance space not only with representatives of the Dancers, an alien species, but also with Invincible, a captured warship that could possibly be the most valuable object in human history. Despite the peace treaty that Geary must adhere to at all costs, the Syndicate Worlds regime threatens to make the fleet’s journey back grueling and perilous.
 
And even if Geary escorts Invincible and the Dancers’ representatives home unharmed, the Syndics’ attempts to spread dissent and political unrest may have already sown the seeds of the Alliance’s destruction...

I find the books of this universe better than Wheel of Time and far better than Game of Thrones. Although I like the universe of Iain M Banks, I detest his politics and what it does to his characters. Still I like to imagine The Lost Fleet universe as a possible beginning for Banks' Culture universe. The use of light speed as a critical component of space battle tactics is excellent and all the 3D space battles serve as an excellent extension to Orson Scott Card's treatment in Ender's Game. I think we have a classic series in the making. Thankyou Mr. Campbell!

Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I had it read in two days and wishing for more. This series and the Honor series by David Weber are the best in my opinion. Pick it up and start reading.
