Publisher's Summary

Earth is conquered. Sol is lost. One ship is tasked to free them. One Captain to save them all.

When an alien armada destroys the United Earth Space Force and takes control of the human homeworld, newly reinstated Captain Annette Bond must take her experimental hyperspace cruiser Tornado into exile as Terra's only interstellar privateer.

She has inferior technology, crude maps, and no concept of her enemy, but the seedy underbelly of galactic society welcomes her so long as she has prizes to sell and money to spend.

But when your only allies are pirates and slavers, things are never as they seem - and if you become all that you were sworn to destroy, what are you fighting for?

    "Stewart as good as ever."

    Glynn Stewart goes from strength to strength, and this marks the start of what I'm sure will prove to be an excellent series.
    The narrator however, while mostly good, appears to have attended the Dick van Dyke school for English accents, Horribly grating to this British ear.

    "Good Story"

    Good story, not so well performed. Battle scenes realistic, but with the occasional "with one bound he leaped free" moments

    "Great book great syory"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Terran Privateer to be better than the print version?

    Do not read printed books


    What other book might you compare The Terran Privateer to, and why?

    EE doc smith skylark series, storyline is a natural progression of what could happen


    Have you listened to any of Hillary Huber’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No but will look out for other performances


    Any additional comments?

    This book has a great storyline and is well written and is very well told. I look forward to continuing to listen to further episodes

    "A comedy of accents"

    The story is a good one. I've finished reading it on my kindle. The audio version.... don't bother, the accents that the narrator tries to cover is worse than a comedy show.

    For the British, if you remember Allo Allo on the TV it's like that. It's so bad it's almost funny!

    But like I said the story and the series are good. Well written and engaging it's just the narrator.

    "good story terrible English accents"

    The story was interesting, had lots of elements from other similar space yarns. However I have no idea what that fake English accent was meant to be, sounded like an over exaggerated east London accent, without the "cor blimey gov"

    The base story is not new, but a lovely story telling and thrilling.

    Hillarys perfomance was really good.

    "Fantastic story and performance!"

    Glynn Stewart has outdone himself with this one! The story and characters are compelling, Hillary Huber does a masterful job with the narration as well. I was pleased to see many diverse types of humans and aliens. It's the kind of character cast I always hope for. Most scifi books disappoint in that regard, but this one shines brightly in a time when we need it more than ever. The plot was completely engaging. Once I got started, I couldn't put down this novel. The usual trope of one ship against invaders is turned on its head. I can't wait to see what the author has in store for the rest of this series!

    "Kudos to Glynn Stewart on this work!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Terran Privateer the most enjoyable?

    The book was extremely well balanced between plot line, characterizations, science fiction and military action.


    What other book might you compare The Terran Privateer to and why?

    Honor Harrington sans the unnecessary dialog.


    What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

    Very well suited to the tone and texture of the story


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wont attempt a spelling of Anne's alien friends name, however she and her race seemed more human than humans, and humans picked up on that.


    Any additional comments?

    I want more!

    "Enjoyed the story!"

    A good story, plenty of action. The author stole shamelessly from the Honor Harrington series. the main character, a woman, ends up with an eye patch and gives the order, lets be about it. LOL but also very unlike that series . The characters have their own personalities and the twist of plot at the end is unique. look forward to the next book in the series

    "Great Story Well Read"

    This is one of the best military scifi novels in the past few years. It's a great listen too. The characters are complex, the plot twists and turns in unexpected ways, and the ending is satisfying. This is why I listen to Audible--to find these occasional gems and enjoy the heck out them. Buy it. You will not be disappointed.

    "The best sf book this year"

    A nice meaty SF saga, that stands alone as a single book. So many others are shorter, built to be split into a three of five part series, leaving the reader slightly disappointed at the ending of each one. Not so here.
