The best novel of its type that I've read. Black Jack is very real, very human, and so compelling he'll leave you wanting more. Jack Campbell knows fleet actions, and it shows."
- David Sherman, author with Dan Cragg of the Starfist series.
A rousing adventure...
the kind of hero Hornblower fans will love!"
- William C. Dietz, author of Runner
A slam-bang good read that kept me up at night. A solid, thoughtful, exciting novel loaded with edge-of-your-seat combat."
- Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award-winning author of Marque and Reprisal
Military science fiction at its best. Not only does he tell a yarn of great adventure and action, but he also develops the characters with satisfying depth. I thoroughly enjoyed this rip-roaring read, and can hardly wait for the next book."
- Catherine Asaro, Nebula Award-winning author of Alpha
In Fearless, the sequel to 2006's Dauntless, legendary war hero Captain John "Black Jack" Geary is once again faced with a seemingly hopeless situation. Recently rescued from an escape pod found floating in space after nearly a century in suspended animation, Geary is desperately trying to find a way to bring what's left of the Alliance fleet back home. In his possession is a device acquired from an enemy starship that could end the war forever. But with the entire military force of the Syndicate Worlds hot on his trail, Geary is up against impossible odds -- especially when he frees a labor camp of Alliance POWs and rescues an egomaniacal captain whose irrational machismo could doom the entire fleet."
It's obvious that Hemry, a retired naval officer, has an intimate knowledge of the saga's militaristic underpinnings; and although his expertise at re-creating traditional military ethics and doctrine, battle formations and strategies, the mind-set and culture of the soldier, etc., is exceptional, the real power behind this series is the masterfully complex characterization of his protagonist. The disturbing societal revelations for this heroic Rip Van Winkle, a true man out of time, are just beginning. Future installments should prove to be even more entertaining."
