Publisher's Summary

Captain Nancy Martin expects a lonely death.

Passing out as her battle-damaged starfighter bleeds the last of its air, she comes to in the cavernous and deserted docking bay of an unknown starship. Leaving her crippled fighter to seek help, she finds she's been scooped up by a gigantic generation ship inhabited by the descendants of the original crew and passengers - people whose entire universe is the ship!

Mistaken for the vast ship's long-lost and near-mythical Captain, Nancy is welcomed as a savior. She believes she's found the allies she needs in her desperate fight for survival. But an even greater menace lurks in the shadows of the ship - one that controls every inch of the ship and every life aboard it. One that will stop at nothing to destroy - The Counterfeit Captain.

Set in the same universe as Vogel's best-selling novel, The Fugitive Heir, The Counterfeit Captain further expands the stage for Vogel's exciting brand of star-spanning science fiction adventure.

    "Fun, short generation ship adventure"

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This was an entertaining listen. For whatever reason I found it reminiscent of Heinlein's juveniles. The characters were likable and the female protagonist was strong and intelligent.

    The narration was well done.

    I wasn't crazy about everyone having a "loose" personality. No one appeared chaste.

    I will look for more of Mr. Vogel's work.

    "Exciting adventure with strong female protagonist"

    I really enjoyed the Counterfeit Captain, both story & performance! The story involves a female star ship Captain temporarily stuck away from her ship having to figure out one challenge after another in a rapid-fire yet believable way. She is a competent, intelligent leader, and naturally makes decisions and takes charge in a wide variety of circumstances, making friends and enemies along the way. The characters are described well enough to get to know them but not in so much detail as to slow down the narrative. Heidi Cox's narration was perfect - I loved the mechanical voices particularly, and she differentiated all the speakers well. I recommend this book for lovers of adventure & action with a little romance thrown in!

    PS The main character in this book is a minor character in another of Henry Vogel's books, The Fugitive Heir. It's great too; check it out!
