Publisher's Summary

Get the Flight of the Javelin box set, featuring all three books in the Amazon best-selling series. Space opera action perfect for fans of Jay Allan, Jennifer Foehner Wells, and JN Chaney. 

Fifteen years into a 20-year voyage, war veteran Captain Throttle Reyne is looking forward to taking a break from dealing with malfunctions, glitches, and the hassles of monitoring a thousand colonists in cryo-sleep.

But when her colony ship breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Throttle and her crew must leave the colonists behind to search for help. They find a ship that's not only missing a crew...it's clearly not from their star system. 

It's the discovery of a lifetime. All they need to do is tow the mysterious vessel back to their colony ship for further study, and Throttle won't ever have to work again. One problem. While they're away, the colony ship is stolen - with the colonists still on board.

Throttle gives chase to a lawless star system on the outer rim. To get their colonists back, they must take on the pirates and ganglords who will do anything - and sell anyone - to make a buck.

They play dirty. But Throttle and her crew play dirtier.

Don't miss your chance to experience this space opera thrill ride in this special edition omnibus. Fast-paced, action-packed, and full of unforgettable characters both human and alien.

Books included in the set:
Book One: Black Sheep

"Complete set" is a misnomer.

With about 2 hours left in the 3rd book I realized this will rush to get finished or will not be the last book in the series. I'm glad the ending wasn't rushed but I'm disappointed that the series is not complete and according to the authors website she hasn't started book 4 yet.
The story was highly enjoyable and the performance was excellent.

And the stakes keep rising.

Since I already reviewed the first 2 audiobooks individually, I'll touch on the last one here. Great voice acting - she really sounded like a young girl when needed. Skip the epilog if you don't like cliffhangers. Has a bit of a problem that I don't know the solution for - conversations involving several people have a lot of ".. said" which can get annoying.

I was given this audiobook for free and have voluntarily left this review.

Shooting, hand grenades, fighting, pirates

Title represents much of Javelin’s story, various groups shooting at each other beginning to end.
Would have enjoyed a future based imaginary adventure with technical science details, however this story has little more than a variety of fight/ skirmish scenes.

Really fun, Space Opera!

This was a really fun Space Opera, and a perfect, adrenaline-charged romp! It's got fast pacing, and a ship captained by a kickass protagonist (Throttle). Throttle's ship breaks down in the middle of the "Dark". Nowhere really... and no hope of rescue. Right away we realize how special Throttle is when she's doing laps around the deck. She falls and tweaks one of her leg braces, only noticing that she's cut her leg when she sees the blood... yeah, an old spinal injury...
And then there's the Pirates, a ghost ship with an AI, and a Space Station where lots of shady deals go down! If that's not enough to titillate you, I really don't know what will! The book reminds me a little of the works of Nathan Lowell, Jennifer Foehner Wells or Rebecca Chambers 1st book... the way they write about the crew, and the camaraderie. But there's also a space battle too!
To top it off you have Emily Woo Zeller doing a Bang-up job of narration!
You're definitely gonna wanna get the boxed set because all 3 books are dynamite!
You'll be able to see all my reviews under the individual titles!

Great series.

This is a great series for those that are fans of sci fi, that want it to free or mostly free of vulgarity. i greatly enjoyed listening to it.

Very enjoyable 💚

Each book progressively got better and it was good to begin with. Great story, imaginative writing and narration was soot on. I'm looking forward to what happens next.

Not a space opera

It was a drag trying to finish the first book. I'm not sure why the description wrote that this was a space opera or I just have higher standards. I did not care about the crew and the story was lacking. If you want a space opera series I would recommend the Red Rising series.

Boring, not attention grabbing

The story starts boring and does not improve even in the first action scene. I didn't get far to waste my credit...got it back. I think the story teller is not very good. She is monotone and too low in volume when she is not being a character. It's like she's telling a secret the whole story. It definitely did not grab my attention enough for me give hours of my time. At the beginning I was in some boring ship with no start to grab my attention with a story I wanted to follow towards an end.

Well done sci-fi with great narration

While I enjoyed the 5 book omnibus that came before this in the series and which was a bit more Firefly-like, I think this 3 book follow up is even better and am quite impressed with the female narrator's ability to switch between female, male, AI and neutral narrator voices.

I do wish the author had reduced the repetitive "she said" statements after quotes as when spoken out loud it is jarring especially when multiple characters of the same gender are speaking with each other in rapid fire phrases. Mixing it up a bit by replacing pronouns with names and using other verbs would be smoother like
she said
Susan replied
The pilot retorted
she asked
or occasionally putting it at the beginning of statement like
She asked, "what do you think".

It's a nitpicky comment but there are many sections of dialog that go like this:
"short phrase", she said.
"short reply", she said.
"are you sure?", she said.
"yes", she said.
With such good voice narration it's easy tell characters apart by pitch and accent so in quick action scenes with tension and excitement a bunch of "she saids" in the neutral narrator voice breaking up a string of short statements in character voices sort of pulls you out of the excitement.

I hope that another series exists or will soon be created to explain what happens next and tell a lot more about Macy.

A bit of a let down after the Fringe books

I was hoping for a decent continuation of the fringe series of books, I'm not sure if its just the somewhat mediocre narration that let's it down or the story its self.
overall not a bad listen

More to come?

Although this says it is a complete series books 1-3 the last book leaves you wondering if there will be another book, if not it was left with a lot of unanswered questions. I did enjoy the series and the narrator was quite good. This is a typical space story, captain - ship - crew and battles along the way. Plus 3 books for 1 credit is a bargain.

The three books where well read by the actor

I like the space of the three books and the way the actor created the characters was well thought out. I look forward to hearing book 4

Simple but flowing space story

The performance I gave 5 to as it is generally fine, I only give less on the whole if it really grates with me, this did not and sometimes it is very much a personal preference.
The story if fairly straight forward but engaging, it flows well and draws you along, it is not majorly original if you listen to a good amount of SciFi but that is no bad thing. It is futuristic but not fantastical science and that is a part of it which I like life in the deep dark is still a struggle. Care relationships and characters are generally good and you can relate to them. The salvage, revenge aspects are straight forward and it does feel like you are getting an insight to the daily life of the characters which I liked. Overall I did enjoy it and would say it is worth a listen. Once I have gotten through my backlog of titles I would be happy to consider another book from this author.

really enjoyed this one

good story with strong female lead. Although it's a series each book could stand alone - no cliff hangers though each book does set the next one up. Loved the narrator!
