Action! Adventure! Space pirates!
The fearsome Corsairs had waged a campaign of terror against the human colonies for nearly a century, plundering and dominating the space lanes that crossed the Terran Empire at will, all the while keeping the location of their base a closely guarded secret. Then one day, quite unexpectedly, the Corsairs' luck finally ran out…
After nearly two days of fierce fighting, the Battle of Turtle Island left the skies of the Corsair world darkened with their dead. In orbit, the remnants of the once-feared Black Fleet drifted, blazing...while below, the Corsair civilization breathed its last. The Terrans had finally defeated the dreaded Corsairs.
For a while, the terror seemed to be over, but not just yet.
Not all the great Corsair figures of legend had been killed or captured - a few had slipped through the net.
Dead Beckoning is the tale of Adam, a former Corsair captain working to expunge his bloody past by doing good - starting with helping the imperial starship Antares to track down and capture one of the most powerful and feared Corsairs in legend: Sona Kilroy, a.k.a. "the Hammer".
Like every warrior who leaves home to go to war, Adam hoped to return to the arms of his love - but Adam wasn’t exactly a soldier, and Marsha…well, Marsha wasn’t exactly standard spec either…but if he did return at all, he hoped to return to her.
For Mykl d'Angelo and Ripley Jones, Joe Lofflin and Dellon Bennett, Space Fleet was more than just a job, and the Antares and Mordrake more than just ships - they were home and family.
Dead Beckoning is the third title in the Galaxii Series by Christina Engela.

Two ships. Tow crews. One wild adventure
Received an audio review copy from narrator Nigel Peever, this is an honest review. Dead Reckoning is a very interesting turn within this series because it beautifully blends the crews of the Mordrake and the Antares as they collide with the world of the Corsairs with epic battles and personal, profound reckonings for such as once known as Blachart, now being called Adam. This is an amazing journey as you get to know even more about characters such as Mykel d'Angelo that were already well defined; especially Mykel's friendship with Adam is the strongest and enthralling. While this story is not narrated by Nigel Peever and I did miss his exceptional abilities; narrator Edmund Bloxam does a great job taking on this story and making it a good listen. Highly recommended.
