This is a feature about the original series of Jack Cambell’s book series know as “The Lost Fleet,” not the two additional book series that take place within the expanded universe.
John G. Hemry inspired me early into the year, being the 3rd saga I ventured into. Literally, it kept me up for hours reading. At home, at work or even on the road, I wasn’t able to put it down/turn it off.
I have always wanted to do an adaptation of what it would be like if King Arthur were to return. Luckily for me, this book series hits the nail on the head of anything I could have envisioned.
Yes, like any author there are aspects you’ll come to appreciate and hate. I will not cover anything negative because my opinions are never the same case as yours. I will never say anything to take away from the hard work good authors put into their works. Even a single great idea, is still a great idea.
But if it sucks, then it sucks. I won’t post about the ones I can’t cope with. I won’t do that to readers either.
The Original Lost Fleet. (Read the following slowly got dramatic effect)
Taking place in the far reaching future where mankind has been ultimately divided in two and has been in a century long conflict.
Morals are gone, Hope is gone, Honor is gone.
There has been 100 years of a war, that no one could tell you why it started; not even the Nation that started it. Except for a few who hide the truth.
On one side you have the Alliance (democratic republic) and on the other there are the Syndics (corporate snakes); both have battled it out for so long that barbarism is their only tactic in warfare.
Image the Ancient Greeks going blow for blow in a straight forward conflict but now add it with super advance weapons, Starships and battle worn spirits.
Imagine you are found in survivor sleep where you have been for over a century. This is the world you wake up in. This is the world that John “Back Jack” Geary brings you into.
He was there at the first battle of the War, nearly 100 years earlier, and he will be there to help you survive to see its’ end.
He brings morals where there was none, he brings hope when all was lost, and he brings honor where there was shame.
He is Black Jack, the legendary hero of The Alliance.
