Description

After the Renegade mission by the crew of the starship Flying Dutchman, the UN Expeditionary Force thought Earth was safe for hundreds of years, at least.

After there was trouble on the home front, and the president had to authorize a nuclear strike on an American city, UNEF decided they did need the Merry Band of Pirates again. 

So, the Flying Dutchman is sent out on a simple recon mission. But for the pirates, nothing is ever simple, and their mission will become Armageddon.

Tired of waiting for the shoe to drop.

8 books in and hoping every time for the looming story arch of what's really happening with the Elders to finally take center stage. I'm starting to think it may never happen. The banter is starting to get repetitive and stale. I could care less about the senior species at this point. It's time to get some answers please. :)

Great and not so great

This continuation of the expeditionary force was hilarious and highly enjoyable like all the rest but for the love of god move the story forward. Every time a new book comes out I’m like yes finally there’s been enough piddling around with minor struggles now I’m sure craig will explore the Elders plot line and see where skippy came from but it never happens. Another story continuing seven books of a cliff hanger. Find the elders!

Please move the plot along!

Once again a great performance by Bray! As for the actual meat of the story, let’s just say it’s mostly filler. The same banter between skippy and bishop is recycled over and over. The earth is in danger again, shocker. Oh no we need to complete an impossible mission to gain one valuable component, again. Please just complete the story arc, this is getting boring.

Love the series but the story need to progress.

I will always love the banter between skippy the beer can AI and Joe but I would like the story line to progress further, A lot of the same old stuff.
I would give this book a solid “Meh”

My patience is running thin!

After 8.5 books, this is where we're at? About the only thing holding my attention is the banter between Bishop and Skippy. Seriously, where are these books going?? The first few were fun, but now it just feels like were running from one emergency to another and the overall story isnt progressing. With all the things the Merry Band of Pirates are doing, what is the rest of the galaxy doing? Playing pinochle? Bishop is the captain of a pirate ship, and he's already committed mutiny once, yet he's still hell bound on following the rules of people who don't even care if he's around. Dude, wake up! It's time to see this plot pick up. You have multiple avenues this can go. I'm almost having more enjoyment imagining where I'd take the story at this point.

I can not fault the performance of Mr. Bray. Once again he's done a great job with his narrating! I never get tired of hearing him bring the story to life!

author got lazy this time.

the first six hours can be summed up as the writer using material from the previous books as filler. EVERY. DAMN. CHAPTER. in the first 6 hours is Joe and someone having flashbacks. it is like a sitcom where about episode 15 or 16 they do a season recap.

that being said RC Bray is phenomenal once again and the stuff after 6 hours is totally worth getting. sorry Craig but you know this is a lazy attempt.

Same stuff, different book.

I returned the last 2 books and now this one. I decided 3 strikes and I'm done. Well this is strike 3. R.C. Bray is awesome as always and I will keep looking for books read by him.

I loved the first 5 books, I lost plenty of sleep listening to them. I think Craig Alanson is trying to pump out books way too fast. At first he was building a great story line. Now The books are 10% story and 90% filler. We spend hours listening about stuff that doesn't even contribute to the story. Many times I find myself going, GET TO THE POINT ALREADY! It has also become easy to predict the story. There are no unexpected twists. It's just here is an impossible situation. Joe mopes around for days with no clue how to solve the new situation and thinks about how he's letting everyone down. Then he looks at some random object and finds a solution and it's done. Unfortunately I that's how the last 3 books have been. I haven't even finished the last 3 books because I got so bored and frustrated. As far as I'm concerned this is a 5 book series, because I'm done there at book 5.

R. C. Bray is amazing as ever. But...

Loved R. C. Bray vocal talent as always. However the story is getting old.
Character development is painfully slow and the story dosent seem to be changing much either. Earths in is endangered, the pirates save it. Rinse and repeat.

Schmayybe move the plot forward

While I always enjoy Skippy and the gang, until the last hour of the book it felt like lazy writing... very repetitive. Sorry Craig - I really love this series and the majority of your work but it's true. Bring on the elders already.

So many writing tropes I can't keep up....

I'm done. I'm so tired of Alanson's juvenile writing skills. Every story is the same. Threat followed by an hour of poor exposition explaining why it can't be addressed, followed by Joe Bishop having an epiphany in the middle of eating and saving the day while Skippy curses Joe's monkey brain. There are so many MacGuffins in this series that it boggles my mind. Every story has one or two major "we need X to do Y" scenarios. In a series so lacking in character development, you would think we could drop this garbage in lieu of some actual intrigue or story. Instead it's rinse and repeat, over and over again.

The only reason this series remains interesting is because of R.C. Bray. If it weren't for him, this series would be toast. Honestly, I could listen to R.C. Bray read the owners manual from my car and I would be entertained. That doesn't say much for Alanson honestly...

I will not spend another dime on this story. I'm done.

Boring Story with the usual tropes

I really like R. C. Bray and only stuck with this series because of him. I really hoped this story would go somewhere but was disappointed again.

I love this series, it's so much fun.

This has become one of my true favorites of all the books I have listened to on Audible, it's not as serious as many I have enjoyed but it's so easy to listen too, and I look forward to the next chapters in the journey and adventures of the merry band of pirates.

Not as good as it predecessors

I missed action scenes. There haven't been a lot. It looks to me like it only prepares the stage for the upcomming books. Often I thought mavericks. If I would say more, I would spoiler all the other "readers". You will know what I mean when you hear it.

R.C. Bray was brilliant, as ever.

More of the same

It is very similar in style to the rest of the series. And that is not a bad thing. Get it of you like the series. You will not be disappointed :)

Überraschend Gut!

Das 8. Buch aus der ExForce Reihe hat zum Schluss echt überrascht.
Die Bücher Serie fing sehr spannend an, ging über zu tollem Entertainment wurde dann aber doch recht repetitiv von der Geschichte und den Witzen her.

Das 8. Buch ist unerwarteter Weise sehr gelungen!

Wie immer genial gelesen von R.C. Bray hat die Geschichte echt unerwartete Wendungen genommen und an mehr tiefe gewonnen.

Absolute Empfehlung für alle SyFy Fans, und Newcomer zu dem Genre. Kurze, unterhaltsame Bücher, sehr schön vorgelesen.

Bin gespannt wie es weitergeht!

Exforce ist eine Klasse für sich!

Mal wieder ein großartiger Teil dieser Serie. RC Bray ist der PERFEKTE Sprecher für dieses Buch.

Manche werden sagen, dass der Humor langsam aber sicher ausgewrungen ist - mir geht es nicht so.
