Description

The galaxy’s worst bounty hunter just might be its most relentless hero.

Esper is a vigilante Samaritian with more moral fiber than business sense. Any bounty hunter worth the title knows three rules:

  • Collect half the money up front.
  • Never get emotionally attached.
  • Don’t ask nosy questions.

But with a heart of gold and her companion Kubu by her side, Esper sets out to make the galaxy a better place, preferably making enough money to pay for the fuel to get from one job to the next. But just because she’s not cut out to be ruthless doesn’t mean the galaxy is going to eat her alive.

After all, Esper is also a wizard.

Mission 1: Wayward Saint

A runaway teen needs protection, and Esper takes the job. But a simple rescue and recovery turns ugly when Esper finds herself in the middle of a custody battle with a vicious pirate who’s hired a bounty hunter of his own.

Mission 2: Behind Blue Skies

On the run from troubles of her own, Esper tries to lie low on a suspiciously Utopian colony planet. Unable to keep out of other people’s troubles, Esper gets a terrifying look into justice on a world where truth is a matter of who you know.

Mission 3: House of the Orion Sun

Esper’s mission to protect the galaxy’s most vulnerable takes a turn for the seedy when she tracks a trafficking victim. How long can she hold out when her morals are tested at every turn?

Mission 4: Break the Chain

Esper’s own dark past catches up with her when bounty-hunting wizards corner her. Esper has faced down the galaxy’s worst criminals. Now, she’s going to be forced to stand up to one of the galaxy’s most esteemed institutions - Convocation of Arcane Practitioners.

Nice Return to the Black Ocean

Coming back to the J.S. Morin's Black Ocean and the great Mikael Naramore's narration was like meeting an old friend.

Although I do miss the original characters (and probably enjoyed their cameo's the most) the missions around Esper were a bit more one dimensional and straight forward with less turns and twists. I did enjoy seeing Espers and Kubus growth in this series and hope that continues.

The narration was fantastic. I can't wait for Mission pack 2.

More Esther Please!!!

This was awesome. I’m waiting for the next installment. Even if you haven’t heard the rest of his books this team (author and narrator) will keep you enthralled if you enjoy sci-f’s with a strong heroine and lots of action.

Author phoned this one in....

I enjoyed Galaxy Outlaws, but this sequel doesn't come close. I expected more, but I couldn't finish it.

Fun and Robust

Oh, how the main character makes me want to slap her into action from time to time, "YOU ARE POWERFUL!! STOP BEING SO NAIVE!" lol. Love it.

Worth the credit.. another thoroughly enjoyable listen.

I usually rate wether or not I’ll purchase a book based on several criteria.. one of them is scanning the negative reviews and skipping most of the positive ones. Based upon how idiotic their complaints are is a dead giveaway that the book might just be another enjoyable listen.. Besides having previously listened to the Black Ocean series, I was already interested. Several of the negative reviews I read convinced me that they likely had not listened to them.. just a bit too much right-wing troll sounding. Listening to this pack has again, validated my theory..

A sad follow-up to a great series.

I only gave this book two stars because of how great Galaxy Outlaws was. If you're looking for a book about a giant dog who is never giant, and a "powerful" wizard who is terrified of her own powers (and only really uses them one time), then I'm sure you'll be interested in this book. Also, I guess Esper is just a lesbian now? This book had one of the absolute worst story arcs I have read in a long, long time. It was actually so bad that I ended up just skipping it.
