Review: The Lost Fleet, Victorious

Victorious (The Lost Fleet, Book 6 of 6) is the last of Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet" novels. Well, there's room for a sequel series, but the story line started in Dauntless and continued in several other novels is finally concluded, with all the sub-plots tied away very nicely.

While there are some fun naval battles, unlike previous novels those do not form the mainstay of the book. Instead, the political maneuvering, intrigue, and Captain Geary's ability to inspire his crew but inability to understand women. (Well, ok, put me into that latter category as well)

It's a short read, and an ideal airplane novel. However, do not read this without reading the other parts of the series first, or it won't make any sense. I finished it on the way to Munich, unfortunately, and was glad I had other books to entertain me.
