Publisher's Summary

Laying low isn’t supposed to work this way.

Esper and Kubu take an outlaw vacation to a remote planet whose tiny colony seems idyllic. It’s far enough for the Convocation wizards dogging them to lose their trail. The plan is simple: Stay out of trouble, let the heat die down, and slink back quietly to civilized space. But these two aren’t good at keeping out of trouble.

Before long, they’re exposed to the rotten core beneath this purported utopia. Bitter feuds lurk just below the surface. Feigned friendships mask deadly rivalries. Cliques control what passes for a government on the colony.

And when a good man finds himself in the cross hairs of a conspiracy to run him off the planet...well, you’ve probably guessed it by now. Esper steps in and takes a stand.

Because what good is vigilante justice if it’s left to amateurs?

Behind Blue Skies is the second mission of Black Ocean: Mercy for Hire. Set in the Black Ocean Universe, it continues the saga of the galaxy's sweetest bounty hunter and her loyal sidekick (who is not a dog!) and introduces a colorful cast for new and returning listeners alike. Fans of vigilante justice and heroes who exemplify the word will love this series.

Esper is too weak

Esper is weak to the point of being annoying. Kubu is such a wonderful character but he isn’t given much to do in this story.

Another swell edition of the Black Ocean series!

Esper and Kubu are at it again: galavanting across the galaxy, helping those in need.

This time, however, Esper and Kubu are in need. in need of a place to lay low away from the Convocation.

Her mentor Keisha Bell sends Esper to stay with her brother (also a wizard on the naughty list!) and the stay ends up being anything but a simple trip to a remote paradise.

It's a paradise planet with a small-town vibe, and filled with bullies if you are an "Off-Worlder".

By now you know how Esper feels about bullies...

There are surprises and twists inside those surprises. This is a quick listen (or a short read) and like all the best of J.S. Morin's works, I am eagerly awaiting the next one.
