Summary

Meet the new boss, daughter of the old boss.

It was a possibility she’d never considered and a friend she’d thought long gone. But when Tanny Rucker came to Esper for help overthrowing her father’s criminal empire, it was an offer she couldn’t refuse.

Armed with Tanny’s loyalists from her father’s syndicate and the magical might Esper brings, the pair embark on a course to rewrite galactic history. To win, they might ruin countless innocent lives and even some of their friends. But convinced they’re going to do more good, they press forward with their ambitious plan: To rid the galaxy of the Rucker Syndicate.

Mission 13: The Girls Are Back in Town

Esper and Tanny join forces to topple the Rucker Syndicate. Their first move, rescuing hostages so that no one can be forced to betray them.

Mission 14: Stuck in the Astral With You

To undermine the financial power of the Rucker Syndicate, Tanny and Esper go after their largest legitimate business front.

Mission 15: Lair of the Dog

When Tanny is forced to flee from battle, she brings her crew to the harshest, most unforgiving planet with a breathable atmosphere: Kubu’s homeworld.

Mission 16: Empathy for the Devil

It’s the final showdown for control of the Rucker Syndicate. What price will Tanny and Esper be forced to pay to realize their vision of a galaxy without its largest criminal empire?

Bonus short story, Mission 16.5: Kubu’s First Date

When the opportunity arises to travel from his birth planet to his adoptive home, Kubu asks a friend to join him for the trip. But without a common culture to guide them, the two megalodogs fumble their way to a unique and unexpected idea for a first date.

I loved the entire mission pack

I love this Writer! JS Morin is a wonderfully creative world builder. And Michael Naramor is one of my all time favorites for narration.

Enjoyable

It's good to see evolving storyline.
Glad to finally see Carl (albeit briefly) again, but wish we had more Mriy.
Happy for Esther finding love, but there was way too much of "look at us and our relationship" with the development.
Cute bonus with Kubu at the end.
As always, Mikael Naramore shows why he is one of the premier voices.
Anyone else notice how Naramore's normal voice sounds an awful lot like Carl? Projection much?

A Satisfying Ending to a Fun Saga

What can you say? The entire Black Ocean series is cotton candy, not a steak dinner. If you've come this far you know what to expect and this final chapter did not disappoint.

But please note that an omnibus edition of all of the Mercy for Hire missions is now available for a single credit. So if you have 2 or 3 mission packs left, look for that.

One other thing to note: this mission pack gets back to unpunished wanton murder by the "good" guys that was a major part of the original Black Ocean series but was less pronounced in these Esper adventures. I kind of prefer it when good guys don't just kill hundreds of people with absolutely no mercy but if you read JS Morin you are used to that sort of thing and it is what it is.

Even better than the last book set

Loved it, understanding now the pretense of the prior book set. Looking forward to the next book set.
