Publisher's summary

The hero of Will Save the Galaxy for Cash returns to do what he does best. Which is - what again, exactly?

With the age of heroic star pilots and galactic villains completely killed by quantum teleportation, the ex-star pilot currently named Dashford Pierce is struggling to find his identity in a changing universe.

Then, a face from his past returns and makes him an offer he can't refuse: take part in just one teeny weeny, slightly illegal, daring heist, and not only will he have the means to start the new life he craves, but also save his childhood hero from certain death. 

How hard could that be? If you need to ask - you don’t know Dashford Pierce.

Before long, Pierce is surrounded by peril, and forced to partner with the very same supervillains he'd spent his heroic career thwarting. But when he's confronted by the uncomfortable truth that star pilots might not have been the force for good they had intended to be, he begins to wonder if the villains hadn't had the right idea all along....

Will write review for third book

When I first began listening to “Will save the galaxy for food” some years ago, I believed it to be a standalone book. A good book with a good ending that seemed to wrap things up. So I was surprised when “Will destroy the Galaxy for Cash” popped up on my radar.

I was concerned one of my favorite authors may have “sold out” as it were, writing a sequel simply because the first had sold well, or because fans had pressured him. So when the story immediately dragged me in, I was somewhat surprised. More so as the book began throwing new hooks left and right, shaking up what we knew of our main character without ever making it seem forced or fake.

My biggest critique of the book is that now I know that there is another book coming after this one, and I’m impatient for Yahtzee’s two year writing cycle to complete once more so I can see what comes next.

Amazing again

Another outstanding audio book from a master story teller. This book is laugh out loud funny. Croshaw's mastery of simile and metaphor shines brightly again. The story is another wild ride through this crazy universe and I cant get enough of it. Dare I say, Yahtzee Croshaw is the Douglas Adams for a new generation.

Yahtzee Croshaw is definitely now on my auto-buy list. That exclusive list in my head of authors where if I see a new book out by them on audible I buy it, I don't read the synopsis or any reviews, its just add to cart and purchase.

Plying Fantastic!!!

Absolutely love this series and I'll get down on my knees to grovel before Sir Croshaw in the hope he will one day bequeath another sequel! Also if you've bought "Will Save the Galaxy for Food" and have yet to purchase this then I'd ask how the brain eating worms inside your head are doing.

Yahtzee has evolved so much as an author.

While I like all of Yahtzee's books, this one has got to be his best. It flows, it has copious amounts of hilarious characters, great moments, exciting developments and a fantastic universe I don't want to leave. I hope this turns into atleast a trilogy, and if not, I'm pretty sure in saying that whatever Yahtzee's next book will be, it will be fantastic. He's on a winning streak.

Extremly Funny And Worth the Credit

Will Destroy the Galaxy for Cash is an excellent follow up to Will Save the Galaxy for Food. Having read Croshaw's other works, this one really stands out to me as being one of the funnier entries. The nameless protagonist must take up the mantle of Jacques McKeown once again, and suffer through insufferable fans, reformed villains, and passive-aggressive psychopaths. Yathzee's caustic wit is on full display here with multiple one-liners that made me pause the recording because I was laughing so hard. I particularly liked the Jacques McCon scenes as they reminded me of the hijinks you might see in a Terry Pratchet novel. Croshaw does an excellent job of narrating the main characters. Each has a distinctive pitch and cadence that you might expect from professional voice actors. It really emphasizes the dry wit of the author, and makes it easy to tell who is talking. I will definitely be re-reading this in the future.

Yahtzee did it again!

Please finish the next one swiftly. I am hooked. Pilot math is now my favorite way of cussing! 😆

Even Better Sequel

Great story that takes the McKeown saga (as labeled by Yahtzee Croshaw) in a completely different direction from the first book. Interesting themes, great villain and shocking ending, that all in all makes me wish I could read/listen to the third book right now. Amazing work.
