Earth is no longer the center of the universe. After the invention of the faster-than-light jump drive, humanity is rapidly establishing new colonies. But the vast distances of space mean that the old order of protection and interstellar law offered by Earth has ceased to exist.
When a nearby world attacks, the new colony of Glenlyon turns to Robert Geary, a young former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, a onetime enlisted marine. With nothing but improvised weapons and a few volunteers, Geary and Darcy must face down warships and armored soldiers - or die trying.
As battles rage and pirates take an increasing toll throughout the colonies, the only hope for lasting peace lies with Carmen Ochoa, a "Red" from the anarchic world of Mars, and Lochan Nakamura, a failed politician. They have a plan: to lay the groundwork for mutual defense that could someday grow into an alliance. But if their efforts don't succeed, the growing power of aggressor worlds could turn regions of space founded on freedom into battlefields between the first interstellar empires.

As enjoyable and exciting as The Lost Fleet.
Genesis Fleet sets out to show in no uncertain terms that a) The Lost Fleet universe is a strong and rich sci-fi universe and that b) there actually IS a way to do prequels in an exciting, captivating way.
It's well paced, it's well balanced between action and character arcs and it's as enjoyable and funny as the author's other works.
Two thumbs up, and I'm hungry for more.

Easy Sci-Fi Abenteuer
Ein Abenteuer im wilden Westen des Weltraums. Eine Weiterentwicklung der Lost Fleet Geschichte. Die ganze Welt ist schlecht außer unseren Helden. Dennoch bleibt die Geschichte bis zum Ende spannend und macht Lust auf Mehr.
