Starship Blackbeard

I’ve known Michael since he put his books up on Podiobooks. I chat with him online and I’m jealous of his globe-trotting habit. I’m still going to review this book because I loved it and can’t believe I’ve not had a review of it here yet.

So, imagine the Royal Navy in Space. With pirates. And slaves. And civil war. Imagine the hero of the last war is framed and headed for a penal colony.

Yeah. Now imagine that it all falls apart and Captain James Drake must win back his reputation, save the home world, and make a decision about whether he’ll stand-by and watch another race destroyed or step up and risk it all to save them.

Pulpy space opera goodness. Cover-to-cover. Intra crew difficulties. Pirates to the left of him, traitors to the right. What to do? What to do?

I had to wait for these books to come out but Michael’s got the whole series in one volume now. It’s back list but there are a lot of books set in this universe and I’ve read every one of them. I think you should, too, but don’t take my word for it. Grab a sample and see what you think for yourself.
