Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Tasso Menzies just finished burying his grandfather next to his mother and grandmother on the family farm when he receives an order from his estranged uncle to come to Capital City. He doesn't want to leave the only home he's ever known. He doesn't want to be apprenticed on a space freighter crewed by Texas cowboys of Mexican descent. He certainly doesn't want to be gone for so long that his home and inheritance are stolen. While trying to fit in and still get home he learns what it is like to live in space, what a cheerleader is, how spicy a taco can be, and that Texicans like a good fight as much as he does.

Poorly written non-space story

What would have made Titanium Texicans better?

Sorry to say that a better writer could maybe have saved the story but probably not. Very amateurish,as in highschool writing assignment amateur.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Not anything by Alan Black. I am sad to say that I gave been burned the last several times by reading/believing Audible reviewers


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Use an actual Texas accent. As a native Texan I was offended by this narrators extremely poor Texas, Mexican, Texican accent!


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Sadly none
