Description

The battle-scarred star carrier Flying Dutchman is finally on her way back to Earth, after an exceptionally successful series of missions that have once again saved the world. The ship needs a serious refit, and her exhausted crew just wants a break from constant clandestine warfare against a vicious and superior enemy. Wishes come true, right? Not for the Merry Band of Pirates.

Just binged the whole series. MUST HAVE MORE *taps forearm*

I, like many, grabbed this book series on RC Bray’s recommendation or simply by his name.

Don’t let that be the only reason. This writing is witty, clever, fun, deep, and somehow feels like a real world.

Gripes I have with most stories are character or logic inconsistencies. The abandoning of or betrayal of the rule-sets in a built character or world for the sake of plot. That and the forgetfulness of many writers who in a long series abandon plot lines they set up in previous books. Craig thus far has given me nothing to gripe about on that front.

For me, the slow weaving of clues into a massive story of the deep past with the Elders and the AI is very well done. Many writers tend to rush world building or abandon it altogether and the opportunity for mystery is wasted. I love the opportunity to ponder what really happened in the deep past. That’s a personal thing, as I love that in the real world too. I think I know the story he is setting us up for and I’m quite excited about it.

Yarg

Been a fan of the series since book one. Mr Brays performance has given me many chuckles. I love the story and can't wait to see which direction it goes next cuz I was a little off in this book.

Love the series but...

The story has to pick up and start moving along. Alanson is building up an interesting universe but then gives us tidbits of discovery and while I’ve enjoyed every title so far it’s all staring to get long in the tooth. I’d like him to start delving more into the Elders mythos and stop the endless plots to keep saving the Earth because an alien might go visit it. I think, hopefully, this book wraps up that plot arc and our planet is finally and truly safe, and now they can go and figure out some of the mysteries of the galaxy, after the little audio play that is.

Love the Awesomeness!!!

Great instalment of the merry band of pirates. Story continues to be engaging leaving me wanting more. The secret is in the interactions of ‘Skippy the magnificent’ and Col Bishop. It is humorous and fanciful all at the same time. Keep writing these books and I’ll keep buying them.

It wouldn’t be half as good without the incredible story telling ability of R.C.Bray. Thank you to both the author and the narrator for coming together to create such a fun and engaging story.

LOVEEE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!

My partner and I listen to these books while we are on the road for work (which is all the time because we are truck drivers). Love everything about the series so far, Craig Alanson is a great writer and RC Bray is a great narrator. Can't wait until next month when our next credit comes out and then hopefully he writes some more books soon haha!!!

Another out of the park performance by RC!<br />

Storylines are similar but that was ok. Enjoyed it immensely. R.C. was brilliant as always.

The most entertaining series I’ve read/listened to in 20 years!

Renegades was great. I was sad when it ended. RC Bray is amazing and is the FIRST EVER narrator to convince me to listen to audio books that are not business-related.

Craig Alanson - well, he has written another amazing story. I love these books and can’t wait to continue each story where I left off. The characters are well developed. Skippy the Magnificent is possibly my favorite sci-fi character of all time. This was a spot previously held by Ender (going back to the early 1990’s). This book is suspenseful with twists you don’t expect, science that you can believe might be possible, and characters that you feel like you know (personally) by the end.

“Trust the Awesomeness” that is in this book. If you are reading this review and haven’t started the series, do it. If you love space adventures, and a good laugh, you’ll enjoy the story about space paramecium pirates and a talking beer can. And no, they are not actual paramecium(s?). Or a beer can. Just buy this.

Same Problems as BSG and LOST

This series has been what I look forward to the most. Every time a new book hits, i re-listen to the series , in order, to get ready..usually to remind myself of whats happened prior. With each book, there is a slight drop-off in enjoyment as the same jokes, one-liners, and themes reiterate themselves without significant story evolution. Note that until This book, I felt the falling off was slight.

My gut feeling with Renegades is that the author never expected this series to be this successful when he set out...and not he's just padding the story with repetitive crap to wring every cent out of it that he can. Its the same feeling I had with ScyFy's Battlestar Galactica, LOST, and a dozen others shows that were overnight hits. Its like, "Holy crap, this is huge...we need more seasons"

The story is languishing. The jokes are pretty old now: "Let's go with the caring thing", "Hold my Beer", "I hate my life" I don't want to give much away, so I'll not say more...but predictable is the word...its become predictable.

We need to evolve the current characters. The story about overarching Skippy story needs to move forward faster, we need some new characters with depth in their own right. Hell, in this book, there were even fewer players...which meant we had to spend even more time with the same circular jokes and plot.

This series has been great...but please move it along, evolve the characters...More has to happen...If the next book falls off harder than this one did, I think I am done. At the very least, I won't pre-oder anymore and wait to read the reviews.

Good But I Hoped For More

Book 7 is a lot better than book 6. For me however, there was too much bantering and not enough story development. Don't get me wrong I like the banter between the characters. But, when I can fast forward a few minutes and the same banter between the same characters on the same subject is still going on for several minutes afterward, its a bit much.

Just my perspective. I am sure there are a lot of Skippy fans who have a different opinion.

All in all I did enjoy the book. Just not as much as if there would have a bit more story development.

Another filler book

Always better with Skippy and Joe. Unfortunately just a bunch of repeated phrases and events in a different part of the galaxy. Prepare to hear "monkey brain" 300 times and maybe 10 minutes of new information. RC was fantastic as always, though seemed to struggle with the accents slightly in this one.

Series needs to go somewhere soon

I've enjoyed listening to these audiobooks at work. I skipped Paradise Lost as well as Book 6 as I felt they were nothing more than fillers or contractual obligations to the publisher. While I don't think this book was bad, I feel like it was rushed out just to have more sales. I know this is the goal of any author and publisher, but I would rather not be able to feel that is the case while I'm listening to the book. The series really needs to go somewhere in the next book.
I agree with other listeners that it needs to explore the Elders, more of Skippy's hidden background, as well as some interaction with some higher species.

Ready for the next stage

We all know the series isn’t going to end soon, but Renegades felt like the close of the first phase of the story.

From Spec Ops (book 2) through Renegades the Merry Band Of Pirates’ portion of the story followed a very familiar formula (impossible problem - hours of thinking - lots of “you dumb dumb” from Skippy - a creative solution from Joe - repeat as necessary). I have kept listening because the books are entertaining and Columbus Day did a great job of building an intriguing universe while making the reader care about Joe. With that said, I’m hoping that the end of Renegades will let the story build to something bigger than interstellar crisis management.

Book 9 (or 10 if they go back to the Mavericks for book 9) is a real opportunity to get back to building a large-scale narrative and to get away from the formula a little bit.

I'm Out

The last two books but especially this one have been little more than ongoing side quests to the main story line. I really liked the first five books in the series but after that it just keeps dragging and dragging on ENDLESSLY..."Oh no now we have another problem to solve which is composed of 5 smaller problems and each of those has a ridiculous number of surprises that need to be solved!" and on and on. Almost nothing...again....about the main story line which is really what kept me reading this series. also Skippy is a lot less likeable now and the relationship between him and Joe a lot less fun. Suddenly the phrase "you little shithead" being repeated constantly throughout the book, seems a lot less funny and bit more disturbing. This last book was nothing more than a blatant money grab by trying to extend the story far beyond it's best before date. I count that as a slap in the face by the author towards his fans. I'll be returning this one and won't be getting any more. I'm Out.

Wonderful!

Dear Craig Alanson, please stop making the first 10 chapters the same as last 3 books! If you threaten to toss Skippy out an airlock, I am going to throw myself into a blackhole. I find the repetitive threats very tedious. Especially since you have reused them from previous books and use the same threat at least twice a piece in this book!

Felt weak

R.C. Bray is amazing as always.

This series has been fun to listen to till this book.

This felt like Robert Jordan during the filler parts of Wheel of Time. Amazing detail spanning hours that did not progress the plot much.

Hopefully things get better the next couple of books.
