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 also mean that the old order of protection offered by Earth has ceased to exist. When the colony of Glenlyon is attacked, its up to Robert Geary, a young former junior fleet officer, and Mele Darcy, a former enlisted Marine, to face down warships and armored soldiers - or die trying.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"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

"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
