While the crew of the UN Expeditionary Force's pirate starship Flying Dutchman are enjoying a luxury vacation cruise (not!), UNEF troops are still stranded on an alien-controlled planet. Major Emily Perkins and her team are busy picking up the pieces, and it's not easy, because there is trouble on Paradise....

I thought this wouldn’t be as good of a read without Skippy. I was proven wrong. A bit more in the serious note, by very good overall.

I really hated this book overall. I thought this book was something completely different than what it actually was--it's strange to say the least.

I don't recommend it. #Audible1

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

MJS normally knocks it out of the park on anything he writes, but short stories aren't long enough to establish a proper story line for his type of detail. This was a decent read, especially if you miss Riyria. Overall though, don't expect to be blown away by this one. #Audible1

Koren Bladewell now knows he is a wizard, but he is lost in the wilderness, cut off from help, and unable to use his powers. The enemy is poised at the border with an overwhelming invasion force, and it will take wizards, soldiers and a young, untested princess to hold off defeat long enough for Koren to be trained and grow into his power. But he might not wish to help those who deceived him and destroyed his life.

Solid book, a bit disappointed to see the series end though. Comparable to the Micheal J Sullivan’s writing but not as detailed. Still very good and would recommend

Most of these business-type books speak about the same ideas and success stories again and again. The author of this book however, is able to convey real and useable content from an entirely new point of view. The stories from which his teaching derive are both interesting and informative. I walked away from this book satisfied with the story and better at sales than when I started.
