Publisher's Summary

Having journeyed through time in order to restore peace to the galaxy, Cal Carver and Space Team are a little dismayed to find out they may have inadvertently made things even worse...whoops. 

Captured by an unfamiliar alien species, the crew is banished to a life of slavery in the Mustard Mines of Moktar, where they come face to face with the sinister Manacle - a terrying new enemy whose diabolical agenda is worse than any they have encountered before. 

With the clock ticking and thousands of lives at stake, Space Team must race across the galaxy, stop Manacle's evil scheme, and save the day once more. 

But first, they have to escape....

Featuring space gnomes, sand stomachs, and the sexiest facial paralysis in history, Space Team: Sting of the Mustard Mines is the 10th explosive adventure in the Space Team series, and the perfect jumping-on point for new listeners.

The Amazing Duo Barry and Phil do it again!

Barry's writing and humor is witty and hilarious. I've enjoyed the outtakes in the last 3 books I believe where Phil just cracks up as he seems to be reading the story for the first time. That alone tells me that he loves the characters just as we do and always puts 110% in his work. On a side note I had assumed that Phil did the characters separately but nope, he does them all on the fly.

On a separate note I've seen authors become lazy with their characters and their follow up books tend to flop but Barry hits each book in this series out of the ballpark.

Highlights were: the regeneration of Cal's limbs, all five of them. Finding out where Mustard comes from and how Mustard Custard is something that should never be made...ever. The Kermit joke. The "manly" villain. The "sarlac-like" creature and why I realize that Boba Fett would never have made it out. But most especially Loren's best friend from the academy, Garunk. All I can say is that he/she/it was very "cheeky",

I hope Garunk returns back again. lol

great book and love the outtakes at the end!

as usual a hilarious installment of Space Team. Also, I've loved the last few books by this duo that have included outtakes at the end! I wish everyone did this.

Keeps on Going!

You'd think that after so many books this story would be getting old. In fact, I thought the last book was a good place to stop, but somehow the plot is just so dang complicated and convoluted in just the right proportions and Phil Thron is such a masterful narrator that I can't stop listening.

Funcking funny 😂

This is the funniest in the series so far! Mr Hutchinson the characters are just brilliant. I laughed out loud several times during this book, great fun. Where do you get the ideas from and I bet you just love writing Carl’s lines knowing that Mr Thron is going to have to laugh out loud.
Great story awaiting the next one👍😎

Mr Thron you have brought all these people to life (and in Cal’s case dead and back again again and so on). I really like them all thank you 😊. The out-takes are brilliant, as I heard you read the toilet scene I laughed and at the same time knowing that you would also and I was right. Brilliant.

Just love it!

Keep these books coming. I love the story and the narrator is awesome. I laughed out loud regularly, insighting odd looks on a quiet train in rush hour. Lots of fun.

Amazingly funny. Best sci series ever

Space Team defies the law of diminishing returns, as this series just gets better and better. Ive read a lot of books and most tend to repeat patterns, but ever book of Space Team feels original, you dont feel like you're reading the same story told in a slightly different way. These are without doubt the funniest books that I has listened to. The Mustard Mines, just like the others, had me laughing out loud constantly, which can be embarrassing when your listening to the book whilst in the supermarket. I've seen the author say these are like Hitchhikers guide, but they're not, they are much much better

Another fonking spacetastic book in the series

This is a bit of a pointless review because if you're looking at getting this book then I'm assuming you've, to your delight, already read the previous books. You already know you're going to love this. If you haven't read any of the Space Team books then do yourself a favour and get them NOW. Gloriously funny, great characters & plots, brilliantly read.

Barry is a quill wielding Wizard of wit!

I have enjoyed, and continue to enjoy, everything that Barry writes. He weaves together enthralling stories with laugh-out-loud comedy, interspersed with moments of genuine emotion. I literally cannot stop listening once I've started! This obviously has a lot to do with the brilliant voice talent of Mr Thron as well. He brings the stories to life with what seems like ease, but I imagine is actually the result of years of practice and perfecting. I have a tremendous amount of respect for you both, you fonking shizznods.
