Publisher's Summary

The answers Captain Jonathan "Coop" Cooper and the crew of the Ivoire seek lie in the Boneyards. But they must wait for Boss and her team to dive it, explore the wrecks, and piece together what happened in that faraway place. Boss loves the challenge. Thousands of ships, centuries of history, all play to her strengths. In her absence, she trusts Coop to defend the Nine Planets Alliance against the Enterran Empire. But an encounter from Coop's recent past shows up to haunt him, an encounter he never told Boss about, an encounter that could threaten her future, his life, and the fragile peace between the Alliance and the Empire.

    "Tried to listen in small portions, failed.."
    What made the experience of listening to Skirmishes the most enjoyable?

    The storyline was easy to follow - and complicated at the same time. It was read excellent and kept me listening as much and often I could, just so I could get the next bit and the next bit and..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skirmishes?

    The story is filled with memorable moments, the mystery about The Boneyard gather many of them - I want more in the next book


    What about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance did you like?

    This time she did slow down in parts, as if she was really enjoying herself and wanted absolutely all parts to be just perfect. She got the perfect voice for the story


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end, when Boss comes back to "her" base and get an updated status


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far the best book I've listened to from this author, I want the next book..

    If you could sum up Skirmishes in three words, what would they be?

    thrilling space opera..


    What did you like best about this story?

    How the tech does not over power the character development. Their is a fine balance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when the bone yard attacked the ships


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Through the endless sea of space. What will you find in a ships grave yard?


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Dive universe junkie. I just wish the books were longer. I can go through one in two days.

    What's great?

    Another book about Boss and her merry band?
    Narration by Jennifer Van Dyck?
    All of the above?

    Another great book in the series. The only problem is that as soon as you start it, you're going to have to block off a dozen or so hours, because you're not going to want to stop it.
