Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

These are the voyages of the starship A.S.F. Willful Child. Its ongoing mission: to seek out strange new worlds on which to plant the Terran flag, to subjugate and if necessary obliterate new life-forms, to boldly blow the... And so we join the not-terribly-bright but exceedingly cock-sure Captain Hadrian Sawback and his motley crew on board the Starship Willful Child for a series of devil-may-care, near-calamitous and downright chaotic adventures through "the infinite vastness of interstellar space".

This book was recommended since I'd listened to one of the Daily Deals, and it was not worth the credt. While trying to be a spoof on Star Trek, it just is as a jumbled mess. There characters never seem to be fully developed, then again, where they ever in the real Trek series?

I guess if you like Hard Lucy Hank you may like this; I didn't like this book or Hard Lick Hank.

There are no happily ever afters in the new Undead World. There are no vacations or time-outs or do-overs. There's only the endless daily grind of living or the shockingly horrific fact of death that hangs over every living creature left on the face of the earth. For some, that death lies in a single mistake or a moment of bad luck, or simply in fate. For others, that hard death hounds them day and night, relentlessly.

It seems like they took the first Grid Down book and just added a small bit of back story to fill out the characters. But the plot is exactly the same.

Change the title a small bit, but someone else as the author, have someone else read it = profit. If so pissed that Audible would let this happen in thinking about canceling my subscription.

Before she saved the galaxy, she was ''Ms. Midshipwoman Harrington'' - New York Times best-selling author David Weber reveals how Honor Harrington's long and brilliant career began with an encounter with ''pirates'' who turned out to be much more than they seemed.... Another day, another planet at war. But in David Drake's ''Choosing Sides',' Lieutenant Huber stepped off the starship right into an ambush. The attackers didn't survive, but neither did far too many of Huber's troops - and Slammers aren't supposed to get caught in ambushes.
