Publisher's Summary

Flying at the helm of a powerful battle cruiser, former pirate Catarina Vargus leads a collection of colonists, miners, engineers, and navy personnel to establish an outpost far beyond the frontier. The Royal Navy needs a forward operating base in their war against the alien race known as Apex, who has vowed to exterminate all sentient life in the quarter.

Catarina's expedition soon draws the attention of Scandian marauders, driven from their home worlds by plague and war in search of plunder. Enraged by the intrusion into their territory and greedy to seize her fleet and supplies, they mount a fleet of star wolves to destroy her base before it can get a toehold.

The first book of the new sci-fi trilogy by Wall Street Journal best-selling author Michael Wallace, Queen of the Void is an exciting space opera for both new listeners and fans of the best-selling Starship Blackbeard universe alike.

Pure Escapist Cheese

The story reminds me of the Saturday morning sci-fi serials of 1950s, a fun escapist romp but in many ways utterly ridiculous. For example, the characters are a mix of 19th Century British aristocrats and the crew of Johnny Depp's pirate ship and space battles are fought by 'giving a broadside'. That said, the author shows real talent and as long as you can suspend disbelief it really is a fun escapist 'popcorn-book' read with a likeable main character.
