Since it s unlikely we will ever travel faster than light and meet the Ewoks to slaughter them as they deserve let s just stay in the solar system and have some good old fashioned space opera fun Fun with space pirates to boot While the basic outline of a rag tag crew led by a recent lonely asteroid high school graduate and hot shot seat of the pants space pilot at least he didn t come off the moisture farm with a well used space ship seems to be a bit overdone the writing never becomes condescending like some of this genre I found this to be actually uite smart The letter of maruee was a nice touch The characters are starting to get familiar book 3 and just when you get the septic system fixed on your spacecraft it gets shot up by pirates This may be a running gag I ll leave plot points to others but suffice it to say I have never read any space opera or anything else for that matter than uoted a couple of lines CW McCall s Convoy That brought back strange flashback memories This is a fun series
