Summary

He thought the bloodshed was over. The true terror is just beginning...

Captain Liam Hoffen has no time to relax after defeating the Mendari. Hastily organizing an expedition to their home world, he brings his beleaguered crew across the stars to install the new leadership. But as soon as he arrives, a massive prototype warship slices into their path and threatens the entire mission.

After a daring confrontation, Hoffen pushes through to the planet. But once there, he discovers a terrifying weapon of mass destruction was launched at the end of the war. And the Mendari people are mind-controlled from revealing any secrets...including its deadly course.

Can Hoffen break through the horrific mental manipulation and stop an apocalyptic attack?

Black Cutlass is the 19th standalone novel in the galaxy-spanning Privateer Tales military science fiction series. If you like desperate heroes, fast-paced action, and explosive battles, then you’ll love Jamie McFarlane’s thrilling space opera.

An everyday tale of space faring folk!

Just when you think its safe …..

I had my doubts that this would be as good as previous books, but I was wrong. With the gang back together, things can only go from bad to worse, especially when no good deed goes unpunished!

Not bad but errors

The book itself wasn't bad and for once Liam doesnt let many murderers and rapist go. However there is the confusion with Liam saying he woke the Mendari from the moon and remembers how creepy it was, except Liam wasnt even on that mission. He sent Tabby there and she woke them , he was off preparing for war. Also they keep talking about how there is no more Translock, did everyone forget the FTL drive on Hotspur that took them to the cloud and back? It doesn't work on that substance as the old ones, it's one of a kind or so that book said. So lots of continuity errors.

I like the characters.. But gosh!!! I hate Noah!!

can't we ever have a happy ending? the ending is like watching a tragic car accident happening in slow motion.. but we are left hanging.. we know it's going to be bad but we don't know yet who's going to suffer. Love to see Jonathan Back!!
