Publisher's Summary

LCDR Ximon Sabo retires from the Kremniy Republic Scout Force and gets a retired scout ship - The Mantis. Then he must find work to keep her flying. Mantis and its small crew have a series of adventures across a few dozen solar systems, including alien first contact, daring rescues, space combat, and even a murder mystery. Along the way, Ximon and his crew - a female engineer with a drinking problem, a sensor operator who’s also a priest, Ximon’s sexy companion robot, and the intelligent ship’s computer have to work together to face innumerable challenges.

If you like space role-playing games like Traveller or Starfinder, or hard sci-fi and space opera novels with a Firefly or Expanse vibe, you'll love this. Jaunts of the Mantis is a sci-fi adventure that will hook you with intense space action, rich, colorful characters, and engaging stories that will keep you coming back for more.

Fun first book; Straightforward Audio

First book for this author. Fun book, but author experience shows. Good audio presentation. Solid presentation, but nothing fancy.

complete and total crap

This is complete and total crap. the second time this month I've gotten garbage from audible. I want my money back. this story MIGHT appeal to a six year old because it gives the impression it was written by an eight year old and narrated by a nine year old child. I could not make it through 3 chapters. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
