    Galaxy Blues | Allen Steele

    Galaxy Blues

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Allen Steele
    • Narrated By Marc Vietor
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Expelled from the Union Astronautica space fleet and facing charges of grand theft, Jules Truffant agrees to sign up as shuttle pilot aboard the freighter Pride of Cucamonga in exchange for amnesty. After botching Pride's mission to RhoCorenae and upsetting an alien culture in the process, Jules must take part in a voyage across the galaxy to place a probe squarely in the path of a black hole as it plows through an inhabited star system.

    Irreverent take on sci fi staples

    Tongue in cheek but a lot of fun.
    Story moves along and has a number of cool surprises. The characters are also very vivid. Liked this.

Until, that is, the danui initiate trade negotiations, offering only information: the coordinates for an unoccupied world suitable for human life - a massive sphere, composed of billions of hexagons.

    An awe inspiring saga.
