Publisher's Summary

The crew of the Hotspur just happens to be looking for a new home. If Nick James is right, and he usually is, the Tipperary solar system is about to become the busiest trading hub in the galaxy. To sweeten the pot, the cloud-city of Lèger Nuage is offering free warehouse space to qualified traders. It's a deal that seems too good to pass up.

Of course, nothing's as simple as it seems. Just like Earth's Old West, the Tipperary system is as full of promise as it is Buccaneers who are happy to prey on the weak. No one expects it to be easy, but deceit, piracy, and murder kindle the pioneering spirit in each of them. Only the strong will prosper and the question is - can Liam, Nick, and the rest of the crew carve out a place to call their own?

Be sure to also check out Rookie Privateer, which is the first in this exciting science fiction series.

Pretty good, but Tabby is like a horny cat

A good listen, however I found Tabby to be a bit distracting to the story. She's like a horny cat that needs to be leashed.

I’ve liked the others, but...

This book is super cringey. I find myself skipping long chunks of terrible dialogue that has no point to the story. Every book before this one has had shades of it, but this one turns it to 11. I’m not a horny 12 year old boy, so hopefully the next book isn’t this bad.

Not the best of the series

What disappointed you about Buccaneers?

the "sexual" content for tabby and liam. I am far from a prude but this is a sci fi book not a romance novel for 40 year old women.

What was most disappointing about Jamie McFarlane’s story?

see above

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I think it did

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Buccaneers?

the fact that tabby is lut with an s.

Any additional comments?

I still linked with the characters and it was much better at the end without the stuff I mention above.

A great listen

The only bad part of this book was when it ended. Ready to start the next one. Great character development easy to listen too and a great plot.

Liam becomes a pacifist to scared to act <br />

Refusing to fight unless literally being shot at and even then trying to negotiate, honestly wish tabby was captian, they would have a lot more money and beat the baddies in no time

Nice Installment

It was good but, if this boy doesn't get his act together. He's gonna get his ass and other's on his team. It makes me hella mad. He s not listening to his people. Its good but, if someone was doing this to any other persons family then it doesn't make sence.

Most excellent!

On top of being one of the best spacer books, Michael Naramore has to be THE best voice actor I've come across so far.

Excellent!

Great Story and narration

This book follows on from the previous Buccaneer stories. A good, fast paced story worth the read for any SCI-FI fan

this series has detereiorated each new volume.

wow talk about the wrong direction series has turned into a frosted cupcake. characters have declined, plot and story are ok and would be interesting if there was some action, maturity to character development and less trival pursuit.

Hot Stuff

Really enjoying this sci-fi soap opera, even though Liam seems a little dense at times for a privateer and Tabby seems too possessive with violent tendencies!

That said, this series is too good to put down.

Awesome, Loving the fresh start

The more that this tale continues, the more the characters come to life and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I cannot stop listening to this tale and am going to be disappointed when it ends. Enthralling

Another great book from Jamie Mcfarlane

Can't recommend these books highly enough. The characters development through the series is believable and no where else do you get a story that grips you with a hunger for more!
