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. Geary has managed to do the impossible and they are once again in Alliance territory. He has a goal though - prove to the Council that he is not going to stage a coup and convince them to let him return to finish what they started.

Wow, what a book. What an interesting end to the series. We deal with politicians, aliens, alliances and more throughout the course of Victorious.

In the beginning, the slowest part of the book, we're just dealing with the Alliance politicians. Throughout the last couple books leading up to Victorious, we have slowly been trying to kill any hope for a military coup on returning. We have to walk through a minefield as soon as we start this book. Too bad it wasn't a literal minefield.

Then there is the really quick jaunt back to the Syndicate homeworld. Along the way, we can see just how much the Syndicates have changed over the course of the series. They are fracturing, splitting off into groups who look after themselves. Then, when we get there, it is a slow battle of the wills. We see the dying vestiges of what was once the mighty Syndicate empire, nearly extinguished by one man once thought dead.

We also cannot forget the mysterious alien race. The one that was littered throughout the first five books of this series. We've seen hints, we've theorised they could exist. And now we know. Well, we know some things, at least. We're not done yet. If you have looked into this series at all, you know that book six is not really the end. It is the end of this arc, perhaps, but not the end of the story. There are currently 3 separate series that take place before and after this series starts. We do not experience a hard ending with these aliens in this book. It is a jelly sort of ending with room to do whatever Campbell wants to do in the spinoffs with them.

All this said, I felt it was just too easy. Everything was basically just laid down in front of John Geary by almost divine intervention. The sort of divine intervention that Geary has been trying to deny the entire series. There was only a token resistance. The hardest part of Victorious was dealing with the politicians. It was a slow burn to the end that seemed to just get pushed off to later. I'm kind of disappointed, but I enjoyed my time reading this series. I'll probably continue on at a later date. ( )

This is the book I have been waiting for! Finally, questions are going to be answered and issues are going to be resolved, right? Not so fast. Syndics are defeated but Geary and the fleet must return to defeat the aliens....check. But, who are the aliens? Why are they here? Yet, there are more books? What about them? Will this series go on forever? ( )

Victorious is the final book in the Lost Fleet series by Jack Campbell. Having finally got the fleet back home Admiral Geary has to turn it around in order to save the Alliance’s enemies from an un-known alien race. While I enjoyed the story I found the explanation about how ships are pulverised by core explosions weak and unconvincing. Space is a vacuum and so any debris not actually caught up in the direct core fireball would only be given a different vector by any “shock” wave. At least that is how I see it.

I found the series as a whole a better than average space opera. ( )

Awesome space battles against huge odds. ( )

A good wrap up to the Lost Fleet series.

Geary takes the fleet home, then turns around and hits the syndics so hard that they capitulate, while starting to deal with the alien threat. The getting home arc is over.

There is enough mystery about the aliens that I can easily foresee 4-6 more books about the adventures in dealing with them. If so, I'd hope Campbell uses another character than Geary. The poor guy finally gets together with the other captain, and he needs a break. ( )
