It has the continuing initial situation of a legendary hero seeming to come back from the dead (or rather life-suspension for a century in a damaged escape pod), just as the Alliance Fleet has been lured into enemy territory and a trap that wipes out the commanding officers, leaving Captain "Black Jack" Geary in command.

This second installment continues the story. It, like the first book, ends in a good place. Yes, they are NOT home yet... they are still the Lost Fleet of the title, but the story arc is there and I found it very satisfying. While continuing to try and save the Fleet, against great odds, continuing to try to establish confidence in his command (and his own self-confidence), another conflict arises in the figure of a rescued POW--Captain Falco, a famous hero whose situation seems to echo Geary's own, and a man who expects to take up his former place as leader of Alliance ships...
The story continues for a few more books. I’m enjoying this ride. I will go further.
