Penguin Putnam
Admiral John “Black Jack” Geary was revived from cryogenic sleep to lead the Alliance against the Syndicate Worlds. But his superiors question his loyalty to the regime. Now in command of the First Fleet, he is tasked with exploring the frontier beyond Syndic space, a mission he fears deliberately puts the fleet—and himself—in harm’s way...

An encounter with the alien enigmas confirms Geary’s fears. Attacked without warning, he orders the fleet to jump star systems—only to enter the crosshairs of another hostile alien armada. Ignoring the First Fleet’s peaceful communications, this species sends its ships into battle while it guards the exiting jump point with a fortress of incalculable power. Now Geary must find a way to reach the jump point without massive casualties—even though the enigmas could be waiting on the other side…

Baker & Taylor
When his fleet's hyperspace jump lands them in the midst of a massive, hostile alien armanda, Admiral John "Black Jack" Geary tries to find a way to destroy the enemy while questioning the orders that led him right to them.

Great new alien races, more good space warfare - very readable.
I am especially impressed with the analysis of the aliens behaviour that manages to minimize the tendency to attribute our values and goals to someone from a different culture. Should be required reading at the US State Dept.
