The Alliance woke Captain John "Black Jack" Geary from cryogenic sleep to take command of the fleet in the century-long conflict against the Syndicate Worlds. Now Fleet Admiral Geary's victory has earned him the adoration of the people and the politicians are convinced that a living hero can be a very inconvenient thing. Geary knows that members of the military high command and the government question his loyalty to the Alliance and fear his staging a rebellion. So he can't help but wonder if the newly christened First Fleet is being sent to the far side of space on a suicide mission. To investigate alien life and rescue war prisoners from the syndicate war camps. He fights and wins many fights against the alien race and discovers that the aliens also have problems just like humans. Can’t wait till the next book! The main characters are Admiral “Black Jack” Geary, his wife Captain Tanya Desjani, and his grandniece Jane Geary. There is a long list of ships and the ships commanders but if you want to know them all you will have to read the book to find out. I rated this book 5 out of 5 because I think is a good book and a good plot. The themes I saw during this book were not to assume that everyone is completely different and everyone is similar even dogs, cats, any animal for that matter. Another theme is not to trust everyone because some people may appear yet but that doesn’t always mean they are.
