Publisher's Summary

Colonel Joe Bishop made a promise, and he's going to keep it: taking the captured alien starship Flying Dutchman back out. He doesn't agree when the UN decides to send almost 70 elite Special Operations troops, hotshot pilots, and scientists with him; the mission is a fool's errand he doesn't expect to ever return from. At least this time, the Earth is safe, right?
Not so much.

Sci-Fi Military-In-Space with humor

Entertaining, with more emphasis on chat than on plot, ideal as an audio book since there is a lot of repetition of what-is-happening - if you are doing something while listening don't worry about going back because you missed a bit - the author has the characters repeat what's going on at least twice, if not three times.

The humor is more the guys-insulting-each-other kind of joshing and less the clever or witty kind of humor. It still made me laugh out loud or at least put me in a good mood.

Sometimes the narrator's British character's voice (Smythe?) slipped into the same as Skippy's voice, but other than when that happened the narration is fantastic.

Light and fun sci-fi.

Best Book Of 2017 So Far!

My wife and I have waited for this second book in the series since the moment we finished the first book! We stayed up past 3AM (Eastern Time) on the day it was released, waiting for it to hit our Audible Cloud Library after Pre-Ordering it ("Refresh Library" DANG IT! "Refresh Library", DANG IT! "Refresh Library", WHOOO HOOOO!!!!) . After Downloading it to iPhone, we listened to it pretty much STRAIGHT THROUGH!

It's well written, AND Hilarious.. In places it's SO funny, and we laughed SO hard, that we had to take a short break to keep the funny parts fresh... you can only laugh so much before "the Funny" wears off ;)

I liked seeing the Main Character Subtly Mature as the new book went along, and he was forced to rise to the challenge of actually BEING in Command, and thinking/planning ahead, instead of just "Winging it and getting Lucky".

You probably won't regret dropping a credit on it!
