This is a great book to listen too. Even if you have not read or listened to the the coyote books.
The story is set in the Coyote universe, taking place after the events of Spindrift. It has aliens, diplomacy, a mysterious crew member, double crosses, triple crosses and danger...along with a bit of silliness. For example, the value of marijuana to the aliens indicates the author is a baby boomer. Further, the aliens extorted the earth heroes because of a perceived affront, just called for someone with backbone to stand up and call bullshit. I only have one Coyote universe book to go, "Hex." I intend to read that one soon. Then, maybe I can finally put it to rest, at least until another one comes out.
"Irreverent take on sci fi staples"
Tongue in cheek but a lot of fun.
Story moves along and has a number of cool surprises. The characters are also very vivid. Liked this.
"A fun listen!"
I enjoyed the entire story.
The scene where the pot cookies were consumed.
It would be a great listen for a long distance road trip.
As always, Allen Steele has produced a great story. Great if you have read or listened to one story in the series, or all of them. I 'Highly' (hee hee) recommend this book.
