Publisher's Summary

There's guerrilla warfare in the main asteroid belt. The Red Houzi pirates have launched a deadly campaign, sacking defenseless mining colonies and then vanishing into the deep dark of space. No one can predict where or when they will show up next, not even the great Mars Protectorate Navy.

Liam Hoffen and Nick James have returned from their last encounter grateful to be alive, but wondering what they'll do next. Sterra's Gift is nothing more than a broken heap, strapped to a pile of ore. Replacing their beloved ship is hopeless - or so they think until a crazy old man introduces them to an old British warship named Hotspur.

News of Red Houzi attacks near Colony 40 spurs Liam and his crew into action and they set off on a desperate race to save their families. But, what can one ship possibly do against an entire fleet? They'll put everything on the line, but the question is - will it be enough?

Too good to miss!!!

Jamie McFarlane has crafted Privateer Tales into a brilliant series about life aboard a merchant vessel(s). Not boring ho-hum merchant, but the type that gets into a fair amount of scraps with rascally pirates. The character development is smart and funny to the point the characters seem like great friends. Mikael Naramore does a fantastic job of narrating to the point I can’t imagine someone else in the role. This is probably my 3rd or 4th time listening to the series and it doesn’t disappoint. If you want space drama you need this book, and all the rest in the series. I am in no way paid to say this, I’m just a huge fan!

Roger that

Good old-fashioned space opera with all the right payoffs.

Two complaints, though: 1) the author needs to learn what the word "roger" means in the piloting arena. It doesn't mean what he thinks it means. and 2) HUD. It's not aitch-you-dee, it's hud, rhyming with "mud".

A young man's dreams come true.. sort of.

Big Peet's comments about all the women around Liam made me laugh because it was true.. would have liked to see a male character with the same bravery as the female associates. Just the two guys is getting old.. but I still like the series and the narrator, and hope the last three larger books are added to audiobooks soon.

My favorite one of the series so far, recommended

A fun listen, well narrated and a good story.

If I might suggest, be sure you pick up "Big Pete" before this book, it will fill in a lot of holes in the storyline.

Worth the time to listen to! Personally, I am a member of Kindle Unlimited and this book (at the time I am making this review is "included with" Kindle Unlimited at no charge, with a deeply discounted "Add Narration" feature making it a bargain. I STRONGLY recommend space-opera lovers who listen to Audible sign up for this program, you can get tons of books for very reasonable money this way, 100 percent legit. I recommend this book.

HHmmmm

I almost stopped in the first 10 minutes. It wasn't what I was looking for and I'm glad I hung in there. I now have all of them.
Thank you for your time.

Just when you think it can't get any bigger

Another great story from the Privateer serries.

What to do when you are left with no choice, Liam steps up to the plate again.

A great listen.
