Summary

Almighty Ra looks down not from one sun but from all!

Someone has taken an ancient Earth religion and re-branded it for the 26th century. Multi-stellar, multispecies, the Cult of Ra has an answer for everything.... 

Except a wizard who's sick of them preying on innocent people. 

Sunshine of Your Cult (Book 5)

Still getting used to life without magic, Esper accepts a mission that seems easy enough on the surface. An actor is searching for a kidnapped co-worker. Just two little problems with that. The actor seems intent on tagging along, offering questionable "help" along the way. And his co-star is in the clutches of a deadly cult. 

Walk Like a Magician (Book 6)

Now on a crusade to pull the Cult of Ra out of the galaxy by the roots, Esper and company find a arms manufacturer secretly funding the cult. But when taking on such a formidable foe without magic proves too much, Esper takes drastic measures to even the odds.

Hotel Caledonia (Book 7)

This could be the break Esper has been waiting for. A mysterious whistle-blower looks to take down the Cult of Ra from the inside. He's willing to tell Esper everything. Her rendezvous aboard a luxury cruise ship goes horribly wrong when she meets her contact - at the scene of his murder.

Eye of the Pharaoh (Book 8)

The beating heart of the Cult of Ra is its founder, the self-styled pharaoh Ramesses XIII. And Esper knows where to find him. The cult flagship will be in orbit of a planet whose populace has converted to their religion. So, all Esper and her friends have to do is get to a planet full of zealots, sneak about their most powerful warship, and depose the pharaoh amid his most trusted guards and wizards. 

And they know Esper is coming.

Outstanding

Another outstanding collection by J.S. Morin. and narrated by the fantastic Mikael Naramore. If you haven't read/listened to any of the books in this series, you have dearly missed out. I cannot recommend these books enough. Buy them now!

Holy F-balls!!

Esper is kicking butt and doling out mercy at the same time. A dramatic and comedically great story for all fans of Esper. Whilst the Convocation gets its pound of flesh out of her, Esper gains two more members of her motley crew. One, a 150kgs of muscle but not brains and the other a lover that can handle her tech for her, if she can keep out of trouble herself that is. Together the band of five start off doing a missing persons gig and end up taking out a god and a trumped up wizard! But can Esper stave off the horny hands of the Poet Fleet's rebuffed admiral? Oh, and she needs a ship to call home, but an Earth Navy frigate; sure, why not? Tiffany adds real meat to the mission and the Mobius swoops in to help. But what is Kubu doing in a backpack?!

Well worth the terras, or at least a credit. Lol fun!

What can I say, another great one by J.S. Morin

If you don't know about the black ocean series. Get the Mission Pack 1-16.5 Black Ocean Mobius missions. Once you listen to that get Black Ocean Astral Prime Mission pack 1-4. Then get Black Ocean Mercy for hire missing 1-4 then 5-8.

Way worth the money and time IMO. I loved em all and only wish I could forget about them so I could listen to them all over again. Unfortunately I liked them so much they will stick with me for a long time. Ill need to wait like 10 years before they will be fresh enough to go through the series again.

I have read more science fiction and fantasy books then I can count literally in the thousands. These are definitely some of the best. They have a little of everything some comedy, suspense, mystery, science, magic, light sex and just plain fun. The narrator keeps everything light and upbeat and does a really good job of keeping character voices unique.

Esper the Vigilante

The events take place after Esper left the crew of the Mobius. With Kubu, Tiffany and their new muscle Westly Westly they set out to "Serve some Artisans Style Justice" to the Cult of Raa.
When I first started the series, I was not sure how well the Nice, Moral wizard Esper would hold up in a series of her own. Well I am please to say she is one Bad A$$ Wizard!
J.S. Moran demonstrates a polish and mastery of his craft. His characters are well developed and relatable. Mikeal's performance is flawless, bring all the wit and emotion of the cast of characters to life.
Simply put....I want to hear more!

I only hope we get more of these.

Between the awesome adventures of some pretty cool humans and the wisdom of a Megalodog I think I could go for another 8 books. This universe has a great god, J.S.Morin, and voice of god, Mikael Naramore.
One request, please please keep in touch with the original crew more. I miss those guys. All of them. *wink wink* Enzio is cool too. Hahaha

Another great set of stories in the Black Ocean.

This is yet another great set of stories set in the Black Ocean universe. The action and comedy were spot on as usual. Extra kudos for "Walk like a Magician", best title ever.

My only complaint without giving away too many spoilers is that the ending with the "Pharaoh" was a little unbelievable and anticlimactic. I was hoping for an epic wizard dual.

And, once again my other main complaint is that it is over and the waiting begins again. Can't you churn out another Black Ocean story every month or so? ;-)

Another stellar addition

Esper and Kubu at it again. They picked up a new addition and hes probably one of my favorite characters since Mort.

More of the good stuff!

Yeah... if you’ve listened to the rest of the black ocean series and Mercy for hire then you know what this is. More goodness! More magic! More Kubu! More oversized holo star killing machine! More moral dilemmas! Yeah :)

A very Satisfying evolution.

I keep being impressed by Morin's ability to reinvent and redirect his characters in a way that feels natural.
