_The Lost Fleet: Beyond the Frontier: Invincible_, Jack Campbell

Military SF. Not the first in a series. Ha! Not the first _series_ in a series! There was The Lost Fleet series, and then the Lost Fleet made it home. Then Beyond the Frontier covered what happened when the fleet got sent back out again, and this is, IIRC, entry 2 in that series. I look forward to the next entry (note the pleasure-reading equivalent of drool).

What happened in this one? We met a couple of new species, which made the army of scientists along for the ride have fits, because the new species didn't act they way they hoped/expected/believed new species would act. One species is herbivorous, looks like teddy bears and is relentless in its pursuit of genocide of anyone other than itself. The other looks like a cross between wolves and spiders, has awesome engineering aesthetics, and lusts after duct tape.


No, it really is. Campbell is Reliable. I hope I'm still reading him in twenty years.
