Publisher's Summary

Nothing brings change like war.

A surge of new tech. New weapons. New tactics.

To lead a crew to victory, a captain must understand change.

He must understand command, and that it is a test.

A test most men fail.

He must be brilliant.

Resourceful.

Every second.

Of every day.

And at night, during scarce moments of rest, he must sleep the sleep of the righteous.

The time has come for Commander Tad Thatcher to look in the mirror.

The time has come to ask himself:

Am I that kind of man?

Spacers, Part 2 contains Wartorn Cluster through to the end of The Fall.

Best one yet!

The first half of this program was Book 3 of the series, which saw the author fall in love with the term "damage dealers" to describe the more powerful ships in the fleet. Book 4, though, really shone. It was easily the best book yet in the series, with some fantastic battle action and plot twists. I am left wanting to know all about Simon Moll. Tell me more about Simon Moll, Scott! I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment in the series.

Great story

Can’t wait for the next book, a story that will keep you coming back. The only sad part is the cliff hanger at the end and having to wait for the next release

Could not even finish it.

It should not take four novels to take down one cock sucker. They still have not taken this guy out because the main characters are all idealogs. will just get you killed for their impractical beliefs. Talk about milking a story line. I was board with this pathetic story after the fourth chapter of the third book. Totally wasted a credit on this one. I want my money back.

Great continuation of the Spacers Story

I really enjoyed this book. However, I will admit with the time lag between the release of Spacers Part I and Part II it took me a bit to recollect who was who and what was going on. Therefore I offer a suggestion to anyone starting this book, go back to Spacers Part I and listen to the last few minutes when Mark Boyett reads the Glossary that quickly explains the major players and current events to help get you up to speed prior to starting this one.

Yet another great read

Yet another great book by one of my favourite authors. A fantastic addition to the Spacers series! Scott has delivered the action and drama once again and, alas, now I must wait for the next chapter to see how things turn out! Will Thatcher continue to survive and evolve his tactics to continue freeing the cluster from tyranny?

Amazinf

Yet another amazing couple of books by Scott Bartlett. We need to hook him up to a coffee IV so we can get more of his writing. Can't wait for the next part, and can't wait for the next parts in his other universes!

Unity 151 review - enjoyable

I was given this for free and I’ll review it truthfully.

I have listened to the first two and now I’ve listened to the this.

Overall I enjoyed it. Lots of moving parts showing it has a slight grandness. Schemes and some shadow work. A few betrayals that I knew would come and a few things is didn’t see coming.

Now I’m a huge lover of action in my sci and I personally can not have enough. For this it was on the lower end of action for me. And when the action happened it wasn’t in as much detail as I personally like. But saying that the action was fun. I always like action from start to finish and that’s how I am.

I think I give the first spacers a 3.7 and this is better. I would say 3.9/4.0.

A good book and enjoyable. Left with questions still and a few things unanswered.

Enjoyable Sequel

Continuing the trials and tribulations of Vin Husher this book picks up where Spacers left off.

Unfortunately for me it was quite a long time ago that I listened to the first book and it took me a while to get back into the swing of things. In hindsight I would have liked a refresher before starting this book but I remembered most of the main characters.

It was when we came across some of the lesser characters I had to struggle to remember where we had met them before.

We have more space drama, epic battles and Hushers famous tactics that we saw in the last book but the stakes are invariably higher than they have been before.

I enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next installment.

Very Engaging

Have enjoyed both Spacers 1 & 2. Is there a follow up book following Thatcher's return? May be a travel back in time?

Fantastic audiobook

Brilliant story, an amazing second book. Great narration. So, you dream of becoming a spaceship captain? then this is the series for you. Good Luck Spacer. Written from inside a mech, which is inside the hangar bay of a light armored cruiser stationed just past Jupiter? Oh how I yearn for the days that will be as nonchalant as drinking tea on a veranda.
