Summary

When a hero snaps, the galaxy pays.

For years, Esper's mind has contained the knowledge of ancient demons. Ever since reading that forbidden tome, a darkness dwelt, gnawing at the edges of her sanity and wheedling to gain control. When a mission to a blockaded planet goes awry, Esper can't hold back the darkness any longer. The darkness within gains an annoying conscience and the body of a powerful wizard.

Multiple battles ensue. First, Esper must fight alongside her crew, without letting on that she's different. Now, there's an ongoing internal struggle for control, influence, and the fate of everyone Esper cares about.

Who can hold back the darkness when its main enemy takes command of the fight?

Mission 9: Ship with No Name

A plague breaks out on Meyang. Earth Navy enforces a strict blockade. No one in or out, including medical personnel. With a humanitarian crisis brewing among the quarantined rebels, Esper and her crew step in. Launching a daring rescue mission, they break the blockade to save lives.

Mission 10: No More Mr. Nice Girl

Esper isn't playing around, anymore. When her ship gets hijacked, it's time to see what a wizard can do when she's not obsessed with doing the right thing.

Mission 11: Magic's Little Helper

Tiffany feels her magical training has fallen off. With Esper preoccupied and the universe no longer listening to her demands, she turns to an illicit, magic-boosting drug for a boost.

But the worst time for Esper to discover that her apprentice is blasted on Starlight is when a team of wizard assassins is hot on her trail.

Mission 12: Mortanian Rhapsody

Something is horribly wrong with Esper. The dark powers she's tapped into have finally collected their due. Overcome by the darkness inside her, she's no longer the Esper everyone knew. 

To get her back, Tiffany launches a daring mission to find one person in the galaxy who might know how to help.

Ticks every box

J.S. Morin, thank you for all your hard work. Everything about the Mercy For Hire audio books are addictive. Brilliant story telling with great characters and the best narration I've ever heard.
All of the Black Ocean books need to be a TV series. J.S. Morin is seriously underrated. Hopefully his vision becomes small or large screen reality.
Now looking forward to the next Mercy for Hire audio book.

I liked the Black Ocean series

But this has become contrived IMHO.

It was great for the first few "missions" but now it's just not any fun and I think the author is really pushing the limits of what's interesting and what's just filler.

I feel like every character is more interesting than Esper is and she's the MC. You're doing it wrong when everyone/thing is more interesting than your MC.

Great Story Progression

Each mission built good character progression to an awesomely nostalgic final mission. Also left great anticipation for the next part of the journey without feeling like a cliffhanger.

two out of four

Not my favorite pack on the series. Books 9, 12, and 12.5 were my favorites, while books 10 and 11 are probably least favorite in the entire series.

Thank you J.S.

Without even diving in to the content of this book, J.S. Morin is literally the hardest working author I have com across in my reading "career". Although I personally would have liked to see some of the plots take different paths, I have no complaints with this entry at all.

Another great entry into the series.

This was another great entry into the series. It was awesome to revisit some old friends. As always, I can't wait for more of the Black Ocean.
