Publisher's Summary

Book 1: Albion Lost:

For centuries, the Daegon waited. They plotted. And now they are ready to strike.

The core worlds of settled space enjoy a tenuous peace, unaware and ill prepared for the threat building beyond the furthest reaches of humanity. The star kingdom of Albion stands as a shining light of justice and mercy in a harsh galaxy, and they will be the first to suffer the Daegon's fury.

Defying his low born status, and despite his self-doubt, Commodore Thomas Gage has risen through the ranks by sheer grit and determination, defending Albion from brutal pirate clans. And when the onslaught comes, Gage and his fleet may be Albion's last hope for freedom.

Book 2: The Long March:

Albion burns beneath Daegon rule.

Commodore Thomas Gage and his fleet, safeguarding the last of the Albion Royal Family, are on the run. Hunting them, a ruthless Daegon commander will stop at nothing to crush Albion's only remaining free force.

To find sanctuary beyond their enemy's reach, the battle-damaged fleet must cut through a hostile and dangerous region of space known as the Kigeli Nebula. But to secure passage, Gage must strike a deal with an old enemy who wants nothing more than to fulfill a vendetta and see the commodore dead.

Facing threats ahead, behind and from within, Gage must lead his fleet down the long march to freedom.

Exiled Fleet is a new military science-fiction series for fans of Honor Harrington, Earth Alone, and Old Man's War from the author of the best-selling Ember War Saga.

Very good series ... so far

I was prepared to find out that this was of less interest than Richard Fox's other excellent novels due to the decision to package both books 1&2 as a single offering. I'm please to state that, on the contrary, it was a very good set of books. Even though most of the battle sections were in space, something I enjoy less than ground encounters, I was surprise to find that these space encounters were really quite exciting.

A lot of what makes this series enjoyable is how Fox set up a perfect storm of events that allowed a lowly class officer to end up commanding what remains of Albion's space fleet. This, along with class of characters that supported the story. There's snooty royals, advanced armored mercenaries, an impossibly advance invasion force of unknown human origin, mimics and, of course, PIRATES!

Get this book combination, you'll not be disappointed.

Another excellent series from Fox

I loved the Emberverse, and to be honest, was a little hesitant to jump into a completely new universe, but The Exiled Fleet is fantastic.

Excellent universe, completely different, but completely entertaining. Great characters and a story that's easy to get lost in.

Awesome read!

Just couldn't get into it . . .

This is another branch of the Ember War Saga universe, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I just couldn't get into this, though, and I finally gave up about a third of the way in. Kinda boring and stale. Sorry . . .

Magnificent in every way.

First of all, Mark Boyett is one of the best narrators on audible. Simply fantastic.

The book itself was very good, not cheesy, not predictable. It was a delight, and was very addictive. I hated to stop listening to it. Well done!

I could not get hooked.

The story moments were good, and overall fun, but the over reaching story and where they weave together lost me. I gave it 2 hours, but no more.

Unfocused and lacking depth

The characters are poorly formed and the story is erratic at best. I found it hard work to follow and the overall story is utterly unoriginal.

Not for me

Clearly this is a pretty well written and performed audiobook, but I just could not engage with it at all. I couldn’t actually finish it as I just drifted off and stopped listening as I was so Poorly engaged.

To me, it feels a little more like an historical military novel placed in a sci-if setting and I’m certain there will be a huge number of people who would enjoy it - and good luck to them.

The bright light of Albion

This has to be one of the best sci-fir books I've read in years.
The charters are great the space combat scenes are are just amazing you fell as though you are there.
The badies are very good and full of surprises I can not wait to see were this adventure will take me.

Not what I expected

Like a lot of stories it started out a little slow but it picked up the pace with some serious action. Not what I expected after reading some of the reviews. It seems that the average reviewer either gives everything 5 stars if they liked a book or 1 star if they want to troll the writer or the book.

The writer did a good job with the description for the space battles and the voice actor did a great job of bringing the book to life. I kept on wanting the main characters to escape from the evil Dagan. A few narrow and exciting escapes and plenty of hardship makes for a really good read.

This publishers pack gives you the first two books in the series that I will be wanting to read/listen to. I found it to be great value.

I rate books on the following system:
1 star = unreadable
2 stars = an unenjoyable read
3 stars = a good book/enjoyable
4 stars = a great book, a must read for me.
5 stars = unbelievably great, a masterpiece.

I gave this publishers pack of the Exiled Fleet 4 stars, I really enjoyed this once I got into the story.

Great listen

Bit of a slow start, however it did set the scene for a great story and I love the combat explanations from hand to hand, diving through holes in the shields and torpedoes ripping through ship armour. Almost there with the brilliant writing.
Looking forward to the next pack.
Thank you

Got it for free - almost regret it anyway

An acceptable story, performed well but mired in too many characters with too many weird names and several main character names that sound similar. This is the first of more than 20 audible books that I actually considered stopping completely before finishing because it was so bad. It does redeem itself somewhat by the end but it's borderline at this stage.
