Publisher's Summary

Suicide Squad meets Galaxy Quest, in this fast-paced, laugh-out-loud novel from the author the Independent calls, "the new Terry Pratchett." After saving an alien race and its god from a sentient zombie virus, Cal Carver and the crew of the Dread Ship Shatner are feeling pretty pleased with themselves. Unfortunately, the creator of the zombie virus is out for revenge, and has recruited the galaxy's deadliest - and oldest - assassin, Lady Vajazzle, to hunt Space Team down. But when Vajazzle discovers the crew is under the protection of a wolf-like species known as the Greyx, she is forced to implement a Plan B so diabolical it threatens to plunge the entire star system into chaos. With time running out, Cal must find a way to outmaneuver and outgun the galaxy's greatest killer before she murders his friends, butchers the Greyx, and buys the whole galaxy a one-way ticket to total annihilation.

Fun and lighthearted mad sci-fi adventure.

A fun lighthearted adventure with a tongue in cheek attitude, this book made me smile with in the first few minutes, some bits of this book are truly hilarious. There is a great cast of characters and the banter between them really makes this an enjoyable listen from start to finish.

Barry J. Hutchison’s writing is smart, self-aware and funny, all the characters are well written with tons of personality. Some of the lines in this book are amazing, I will not say anything else about them to avoid spoilers.

Even though the plot has many a dark moment there is always the sense of fun, I would love to see this as a TV series. I feel like if the people that made Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland got together to make something like Red Dwarf you might get something like this.

The narration is clear, easy to listen to and conveyances to the tone of each situation well. Each character has a unique voice that really suits them enhancing the whole experience. Phil Thron has their timing down just right to help make the jokes just that little bit funnier.

This is just a great book and I highly recommend it.

Warning this will have you listening with a smile

In this the 2nd outing from the aptly named Space Team with our hero Cal yet again trying to escape from another Galaxy threatening disaster.
With many a purloined song , quick whit and some judicious hiding behind his teammates ,the adventure is carried along at a nice pace ,with many humours interjections and Earth pop quiz remembrances thrown in for our enjoyment.
Whilst our band of merry misplaced heroes attempt to fly a ship, argue how things should be named and work that damn sapce shower, political problens and one of the oldest and strangest assassins is sent to apprehend them.
If serious scifi and explanations are what you like then this is definitely not for you.
if you just like a merry adventure with lots of Monty Python and Galaxy Quest style humour is your cup of tea then this will have you a fan in no time at all.
Narration is very capable and actually made me like one of our heroes Mech more than Cal as i listened to what he would say in repsonse so many a silly quip.
This title was gifted to me exchange for an honest review and as such is my own opinion.
