Joe Laribeau was now Salvage Merc One. It was a position way above his days of being a Galactic Fleet Marine. Endless resources, powers and abilities that rivaled the Eight Million Gods, and the full resources of the Salvage Merc Corps behind him. It was the life.
A lonely life.
But, the artifact that had chosen him to be Salvage Merc One was about to change all that and put him to a true test of his abilities. A quest was set before him. Impossible monsters, nightmares turned reality, his own greatest fears come to life, Joe was about to face the greatest mission of his life. And the cost of failure could be his very soul!
The second novel in the hit Salvage Merc One series, The Daedalus System is non-stop action, adventure, intrigue, and inter-dimensional horror, all told by everyone's favorite snarky Salvage Merc, Joe Laribeau.

The Merc with a mouth. In this case Andrew Wehrlen is that mouth, or at least his voice. Joe is salvage Merc one and he is about to be tested for worthiness to war that title. After that test neither the corp, the bosses, joe, the Merc one position nor the test itself will ever be the same. Joes smart mouth, battle legs and all his skills will be pitted against worlds filled with carnivorous ants, sea monsters, lakes of boiling blood, creatures and tests from earths earliest mythology, talking trees, talking doors and more. Love this series this author and this narrator. Keep them coming!!! I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookboom in exchange for an unbiased review
I would like to say yes but this book has been so bad that Im not sure...
The entire story is SOOO horrible!
Talking trees,talking doors.Ancient Greek myths ...Im not making this up.
This book just killed what could have been a great new series ....
I would start with paper shreader and then informed the author to get a real story and return any advance payment back to us..I mean a Talking DOOR!!!
Please do not waste the time you have left in this life to become dumber person from reading this cash grab of a so called "book"...It is really that bad..
Probably at the top just for the entertainment value. Joe is a nut and I want to have a beer with him but I'll just forget him in a minute.
The Dark Matter comic book comes to mind.
Mgurn by far. Joe would be nothing if not for him.
I was laughing through most of it but I wouldn't say extreme just constant.

I really didn't enjoy this one, so no... I couldn't recommend it. But that doesn't mean others won't enjoy it.
I don't know. If I was on acid, it might make more sense to me, but I just couldn't follow the story line. And there was too much "Foe 'n Crud" in the dialogue. The Faux 'n Crud just kept coming, and I thought "If I hear that guy say Foe 'n Crud one more Fauxing time I'm going to stop listening to this Faux 'n Crud and do something productive.
I haven't listened to any of his other work, but Andrew has a great voice, and a great delivery style. Unfortunately the dialogue he was tasked with delivering just didn't click with me.
I tried. I tried three times actually. But I never managed to finish it. So No... for me it was not.
Fun, creative, humorous and entertaining. I listened to this book on a road trip and spent most that time laughing. It made the hours fly by. This book has more humor than many comedy's I have listened to.
I didn't realize this was the second in the series when I started it. That didn't effect my enjoyment of this book at all. Although I will go back and listen to the first in the series to get the back story.
An interesting mix of humor, action, odd creatures, mythology and strange worlds all set in space.
In order for the artifact to completely accept Joe he must finish a quest, this is where his adventure begins.
Love how the stories of the myths were "twisted" between Joe and McGurn(?).
Andrew B. Wehrlen does a fantastic job with the narration. He has one of those voices that you can listen to for hours at a time. Great character voices. Clearly spoken. He did a perfect job with the humor and sarcasm of the characters. He made the story and the characters come to life. All around very enjoyable.

Give skills to a smart alec, and you get a smart alec with skills. That is pretty much what we have. The story is fun and definitely has some oddities, but I enjoyed the snarky comments and attitudes, both with the protagonist and others, more than anything. The narrator was good and played the smart alec well.

I didn't want to stop listening to this book, it held me till the very end. It was funny, intriguing, witty and an overall good read. I wasn't sure about how Bible was going to blend the obvious silliness of some of the characters with the overall seriousness of the plot, but it worked. I would buy subsequent books to listen to. Wehrlen was able to capture the essence of the characters and really brought them to life. I would listen to another book narrated by Wehrlen.

this is thebperfect sequal to Salvage Merc 1. i enjoyed walking in the shoes of a salvage merc once again. The direction this story went wad unexpected but delightful. cant wait for the next one.
I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
The first thing about this book that I noticed was the sarcastic humor. It reminded me a lot of Jim Butcher's Dresden books. Had me laughing out loud often. Very unique and creative, the world was fascinating and the characters are interesting and enjoyable. The whole thing is offbeat and more than a little weird. Which made it even better in my opinion. This is definitely one I would listen to repeatedly.
The narrator managed to capture the sarcastic humor perfectly. He definitely made this book very enjoyable.

I love the multiple dimensions that books offer as a place to dwell for moments or the end of time.
I have listened to this title a few times already because I like the story, which narrator Andrew Wehrlen brings to life. This is my 3rd try to post my review and I have now forgotten what I had originally written...what I can remember is the desire to experience more by both the author and narrator, even after my 3rd listen.
