Publisher's Summary

Cal Carver and his Space Team may have lost their ship, but they haven't lost their knack for attracting trouble.

Just hours after setting foot on a new planet, Cal and the crew find themselves caught up in an interplanetary kidnapping plot. Reuniting the suspiciously-silent young victim with her parents on their far-off home world will make Cal rich beyond his wildest dreams. Unfortunately, half the pirates and bounty hunters in the galaxy have the same idea, and they're more than happy to take the girl by force.

With their experimental new ship plagued by problems, a deranged space-warlord determined to watch Cal eating his own arm, and a whole lot of galaxy to get through, Space Team is about to embark on its most dangerous mission yet.

The fourth hilarious instalment in the best-selling Space Team sci-fi adventure series, and the perfect jumping-on point for new listeners.

Keep them coming!

I am rocketing through this series too fast! The characters are all well-developed. The stories are supremely entertaining and yet, for all the funny business, manage to contain some profound messages.

Good, but more could have been accomplished

While the book was undoubtedly as good as others in the series, I do feel like less was actually accomplished in the same listening time. This is one of a very few series that can get away with being a bit formulaic, which is good because it's starting to feel that way.

Reviewing the fourth book in a series can basically go like this: If you haven't listened to it listen to the first one. If you were happy with the series until now, carry on with it.

It's neither a shining star nor a turd, but it is in the top 4.

Going through these fast.

Just buy it. Hilarious and action packed. Tons of crew development with a galaxy sized war kicking off. After the first book I picked up all the rest and each one has been better than the last. As a Bobiverse and Red Dwarf fan I can say these fit right in on the shelf ahh playlist.

Artificial suspense... IN SPACE!

Space Team is good stuff as always, but this particular title suffers from deliberately ignoring solutions/advice/problems to create more tension. It's obvious and frustrating. And the bit about pie is wonderful, amazing, well written and reminds me of my own experience with home cooking bringing back memories... until he does pie jokes 12 more times and runs it into the ground.

Performance overall good, though Throm struggles a bit with female voices, and there's some issue with audio fuzzing when he does the voice for the woman with pipes in her face.

5 stars awarded for rollicking space adventures, two deducted for bits becoming tiresome.

I’m in love

Mostly with Mizette but also the whole series. I’ve binged the hell out of these the last week and I’m going to be depressed when I’m done. PLEASE keep them coming! Splurt, Cal, Lauren, and Mech are my new favorite characters. Download all of these and make your day better!

American red dwarf maybe

if you like red dwarf you must try this. the storyline is suitably farfetched and the narration is really good. I will definately be getting the whole series

another very funny adventure

Terry Pratchett would enjoy these stories I'm sure, and would have been proud to have written them.

Funking Awesome

Fantastically written, similar humour to The Late Great Terry Pratchett. The scenes with the safety catch, Banoffee Pie, Kevin! So many moments of sheer joy I experienced in listening to this book. At several points I was laughing uncontrollably.
Simply put.... FUNKING AWESOME!!!

An awesome series

I loved it overall. But it's not the best in the series. The narrator is great, has awesome comedic timing, bit struggles with the ladies voices. These books seriously need to become a Prime Original Series.

The Best So Far

Space Team Book 1 was the first audiobook I ever bought and I fell in love with the series instantly. With each book being a pleasure to hear, not just because of Phil Thron's amazing narration, but also from a writing stand point.

Book 4 - Song of the Space Siren, is easily my favourite so far. It was an amazing listen and managed to subvert my expectations a number of times. Phil Thron continues his stellar narration, and the writing is sublime. If you're a fan of Space Team, don't hesitate to pick this up. If you're new to the series, I recommend starting the series from the start. But only because the series has been a joy from the very start.

My favourite of the series so far

Gets more ridiculous (in a good way) and funny with each instalment.

More literal laugh out loud moments than I think I’ve had from any other book.

Good for the soul 😊

Best comedy and sci fi series ever

This series never dips. Each book is as epic, funny and each story as original as the last. I read a lot of books and none come close to being as good as these. I can't wait until the next one!
