Publisher's Summary

The third part of the laugh-out-loud sci-fi adventure series, from the author critics are calling "the new Douglas Adams."

Cal Carver, petty-criminal turned space adventurer, is on a suicide mission - and he really hates suicide missions. But this time it's to save his best buddy, Splurt, who has been taken prisoner by the elderly assassin, Lady Vajazzle, and the evil Zertex corporation.

When they discover that the ship carrying Splurt never made it to Zertex, their search leads them through a wormhole to a mysterious planet unlike any they have seen before. Will they survive this strange new world and finally find their friend? And, more importantly, does he even want to be found?

Packed with gladiator battles, angry bees, a big thing blowing up, and the return of the galaxy's oldest assassin, Space Team: The Search for Splurt, is the rip-roaring conclusion to the first Space Team trilogy.

    "Not my favourite Space Team so far but okay"

    While this is the same funny great characters of the previous books I felt it was let down (for me) in the middle by the “Mad Max” feel to it. The ending was great though and I will grab the next one as soon as it comes out on Audible! 😉

    "BEST SPACE SERIES EVER"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely and I do! Funniest space adventure I have come across! Great story, great characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I love about Space Team is that each book is better than the last, where normally books tend to have a diminishing return factor. Other books tend to repeat themselves alot, having there heroes going over the same thing in slightly different ways but the Space Team books feel fresh each time, with brand new different experiences for the characters in each one.


    What does Phil Thron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I really want to read the next books that are already on Amazon as ebooks BUT Phil Thron does such an amazing job at narrating these books that I will have to wait for the next audible release.......damnit!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep


    Any additional comments?

    If you like sci fi and comedy, you wont find a better series

    Story
    "Lot of "what's his name""
    Would you listen to Space Team: The Search for Splurt again? Why?

    Humor mostly. Maybe a bit repetitive, but funny anyway.


    What other book might you compare Space Team: The Search for Splurt to and why?

    Not a book, a movie - "Galaxy Quest". Some characters do not know what to do, some even do not have names - like crewmember nr 5 or Zortex Guy 1.


    What does Phil Thron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is really good with putting different voices to characters. Some dramatizations have less variety than this one narrator performance.


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

    Not that kind of book.


    Any additional comments?

    Characters are still very 2D (as in previous books in the series). Author attempts to add some depth to main character by memories of lost family, but it just doesn't work well. Other than this it is a fun and easy book.

    "Might be my fave so far..."

    Great SpaceFiction series... Especially if you love puns, bad jokes, and shiz hitting the fonkin' fan every time you turn around... Yeah, silly, juvenile at times, and light on science, but nonetheless thoroughly enjoyable, and lol funny from beginning to end... Think this is my fave bc some really nice deeper content... Friendship, teamwork, and never leaving any, umm, space entity behind... Some finely done emotional moments amongst the high-jinx... As a tease, there's an addition to the team that'll fit right in, given its, errr... ummm... odd nature;). Worth every penny!
