I almost gave up on this book as I got tired of the infighting the main character has with the other captains. But it resolves itself and the rest of the book is good. ( )

As the book before this one, Dauntless, this is a real page turner. In the previous book we left the protagonist in the middle of enemy space and the action just keeps ramping up.

I got a little bit annoyed when I saw a literary trick coming a mile away but in general, very easy to read, quite enjoyable action drama in a space war.

And in this book there is also tension between people of opposite sex. Whether that is good or bad depends on the reader. ( )

a decent, fun sci fi military story that kept me turning pages. nothing too awesome or mind blowing, especially since some of the characters are pretty one dimensional.

if you're looking for a fun read, look no further. ( )

Captain John "Black Jack" Geary woke up after a hundred years in survival hibernation to find that he has been revered as a hero. He also finds himself in command of a fleet in enemy territory with only one goal: get home. In an impossible situation, Geary has to live up to the his name and pull off a miracle. He is plagued by troubles in command after a certain faction constantly questions his leadership. Talk about making an impossible situation even harder!

Fearless is the type of book I will do anything to avoid putting it down once I started. There is so much that happens. Each chapter is jam packed of things happening. In my mind while reading, though, there just aren't any landmarks I can point to to keep my place in the story. If I stop for any real length of time, I will have forgotten everything that happened and what I'm trying to do as the main character. There just isn't much distinguishing between events. They aren't generic, they're necessary, there are tons of things happening. Those aren't the problems. It is just hard for me to keep track of the ins and outs.

Fearless, at its heart, is about Geary establishing that he is in the lead of this force. Sure, he is still deep into enemy territory and has to pull miracles off. Sure, the goal is still to get home. Yet, there is troubles in the leadership of the other ships. They doubt his abilities because they aren't what they have come to expect from Alliance leadership. Certain factions think they can do better than him. Some of them would follow him no matter what because he is the Legendary "Black Jack" Geary. A legend who doubts he has the abilities to pull this off himself. A legend who wishes there was anyone who could take over for him instead. Yet, when someone presents himself as another possible leader, Geary finds that he really is the only man for the job. So Fearless is about Geary proving both to others and himself that he can lead them to greatness.

There is also a subplot that is running through the books about the possibility of aliens. To the Alliance, they have yet to find anyone other than humans in space. Yet, the reality is there staring them in the face. It is only a theory, yet there it is. Presented to us readers as a possibility. Interesting times are ahead, aren't they? Looking forward to it.

There is a second subplot that is romance, too. I wasn't expecting any romance at all in this series. I was not warned at all, anywhere. There isn't really any emotions wrapped up in this relationship. It is mostly a convenience of sex. Yet, I was still caught unprepared. They're going to be on this ship for a long time, too, if the past two books are any indication. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

My biggest issue as a reader is that I have entirely no idea about the scale of....well, anything. I have no idea how many ships he commands. I have no idea how many people are on the ship he is currently on, let alone all the ships in his fleet. I have no idea the scale of the amount of people he is going against, the Syndicate. This is all kept deliberately vague, I think. Easier to pull of when you don't tell the readers the numbers so they can pick everything apart. I also don't have a sense of the scale of time anything takes. I'm already bad with time, but this takes it to a whole 'nother level! I have no idea of his resources, either.

I have more questions than answers right now. We're still deep in enemy territory, and we're nowhere near home. This is going to be a long one. ( )

The storyline sadly was as predictable as it can be. It was still well-executed, but never managed to surprise me.

I'll go with 3.5 Stars for now. As the books are very short, I'll just finish the series (and, as I said before, this series came highly recommended to me, so I hope it will improve some over the next books). For now, I'd recommend going with [b:Leviathan Wakes|8855321|Leviathan Wakes (Expanse, #1)|James S.A. Corey|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1289046195s/8855321.jpg|13730452] and its sequels instead of this series, but we'll see if that changes with the next few books. ( )

To Stanley Schmidt, a great editor, a great writer, and a very decent human being. Thanks for helping so many writers, including myself, become better at our work. And I have no doubt that despite this dedication, Stan will continue rejecting anything that I send him that doesn't meet his standards.
For S., as always.

Ships appeared against the black of space, squadrons of destroyers and light cruisers flashing into existence, followed by groups of heavy cruisers, then the divisions of battle cruisers and battleships, massive platforms for the deadliest weapons mankind had been able to create.
