Publisher's Summary

Trapped in a far-off galaxy, Liam Hoffen receives news that a massive Kroerak fleet has found its way to Earth. Knowing an invasion is imminent stuns our explorers, but there's nothing they can do when they discover the interplanetary Trans Loc system has been shut down to stem the tide of invading bugs.
As if things couldn't get worse, Intrepid is then seized by an overzealous alien government, and the crew is relegated to the backwater planet - Zuri. When a chance discovery that could end Earth's desperate war comes to light, our heroes find they will stop at nothing to return home. That is if there is anything left.
Blockade Runner, the eleventh installment of the Privateer Tales saga, is an exciting mix of fleet combat, mechanized infantry battles and non-stop space opera action. While this completes the Kroerak story arc, it exposes a new struggle against a corrupt government - the Confederation of Planets.

Once Great Young Adult Series That's Out Of Ideas

What could Jamie McFarlane have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Ditch domestic violence as Tabby's "funny" personality trait. Immaturity, seething anger, and violence seem to be her only personality traits and this has gotten way old.

All of the aliens, especially the chicken-people are way too over the top.

Resurrect Liem's brains which seem to have died.

Have you listened to any of Mikael Naramore’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to the whole series so far and he always does a great job.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I'm very disappointed in the writing. More than anything it made me think of Fonzie jumping the shark in a desperate attempt to reboot that series. Using stupidity and over the top chicken-people as plot devices brough shark jumping to mind.

Any additional comments?

I could not bring myself to finish finish this one.

Billions die and this is victory?

This has been a 5-star series so far, but this book displays a trend that I see in a number of series'; the author isn't content to create danger for a group of people you care about. Instead, he escalates the danger to the apocalyptic level, necessitating mass slaughter to impress upon the reader the seriousness of the situation. In this case, that means the death of a significant fraction of the population of the Moon and Earth. It's hard to view our heroes as being successful when even victory is catastrophe. None of this was really necessary; you can build as much tension with small dangers as you can with big ones.

And the motivation of the aliens is pretty silly. Why would an advanced, space-faring species not be able to feed itself without needing to cross interstellar distances to eat humans?

This book has dimmed my enthusiasm for the series; I'm going to try to pretend it didn't happen and hope the author returns to the previous formula.

Such an easy listen.

I really enjoyed the latest installment. They cannot be made fast enough, I just want the story to continue. The more the crew continue on in their adventures the more it feels like a crew I would to be a part of!

Fitting End

How the crew of the Hotspur ever managed to survive, I do not know. For all the bravado, I found Liam to be on the naive side for my liking and doubt I would have put my life in his hands.

That said, all’s well that ends well, but it was a rollercoaster of a very enjoyable ride
