Meet the galaxy's unluckiest outlaws. Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.

Great story..took a while to get used to the narrator as it seemed she was kind of flat in her delivery but seemed to get better as the story progressed and i ended up enjoying her narration. Dont be surprised if this ends up as a movie in a few years.

I was a bit apprehensive about this book as certain people and certain reviews made me nearly give this a miss..I'm sure glad i didn't as it was thoroughly enjoyable ..If you are a fan of American Gods or similar type of stories then this is for you. Cant wait to listen to the rest of the series.

There were too many of them. Lucille was nowhere Dave could see, and only a faint mournful sigh reached him from where she lay.... It was time to die, the heroes journey over. New York is on fire, the streets are overrun, and the Demon Horde is feasting. With the world's greatest city in chaos, all eyes are on Dave Hooper, the superhero destined to save mankind. But hero or not, Dave is just one man, and he's short of allies.

In the second thrilling instalment in John Birmingham's bestselling Dave Hooper series, a dragon brings down the vice president's plane, a monster army is camped outside Omaha and an empath demon springs an undercover operation in New York. Two bright geometric shapes, metallic flashes picked out in the morning sun, moving impossibly fast and straight amidst the visual clutter and chaos of forest and rock....

"Monsters" said Vince Martinelli. "There are monsters on the rig, Dave." Dave Hooper has the hangover from hell, a demonic ex-wife and the claws of the tax office sinking into him. So the last thing he needs is an explosion at the off-shore oil rig where he works. But this is no ordinary industrial accident, and despite the news reports, Dave knows that terrorists aren't to blame for the disaster. He knows because he has killed one of the things responsible.

Great story and you cant help just liking Dave...only downside was Sean Mangans narration as a huge fan of his reading i was i bit disappointed in the production compared to his reading on Mathew Riley books as his gasps for breath and breathing in between lines became a bit off putting but dont let that stop you from enjoying a great book..
