Earth is no longer the centre 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 protection of Earth's laws no longer exists. When a nearby world attacks, the new colony of Glenlyon turns to Robert Geary, a former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, once an enlisted Marine. They must face down warships with nothing but improvised weapons and a few volunteers - or die trying.The only hope for lasting peace lies with Carmen Ochoa, a "Red" from anarchic Mars, and Lochan Nakamura, a failed politician, and their plan for a mutual alliance. But if their efforts don't succeed, space could become a battlefield between the first interstellar empires...
Praise for Vanguard
"Vanguard is the book Campbell's Lost Fleet readers have been waiting for, whether they knew it or not. From the moment the young Robert Geary takes his first breath of air on a new planet, the story grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go. Strong characters, complex politics on multiple worlds, battles against impossible odds, this book has the whole package. And for those who haven't read the Lost Fleet books yet...start with Vanguard. Like...the moment you can order it."--Elizabeth Moon, Nebula Award winning author of Cold Welcome
“Jack Campbell's Vanguard starts a new series with a bang. Honestly, it reads like first rate, action-packed, historical fiction--only this history is set hundreds of years in an all too believable future. There's plenty going on from multiple, diverse perspectives, and the characters come alive in the very best ways. I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment!” –Taylor Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Destroyermen series
"Campbell’s skillfully constructed tale keeps a riveting pace, making each character’s personal stakes into fundamental threads woven into a high-energy whole. The conclusion is well-earned and satisfying, leaving readers eager for the next volume in this saga." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

While I loved the second series with Black Jack, once all the aliens started showing up in earnest it seems to lose something for me. This book however goes right back to all the things that drew me into the first series.
If past patterns are any guide, the next book will be a blast. And the one after even better.
All of his books have been great and he just appears to be hitting his stride. The Pillars of Reality series was really incredible and I look forward to the new follow up series.
BTW... If you like Campbell's sci-fi, try B.V.Larson and Ryk Brown. Both have extensive series with very likable, well rounded characters.
