Publisher's Summary

Having journeyed through time in order to restore peace to the galaxy, Cal Carver and Space Team are a little dismayed to find out they may have inadvertently made things even worse...whoops. 

Captured by an unfamiliar alien species, the crew is banished to a life of slavery in the Mustard Mines of Moktar, where they come face to face with the sinister Manacle - a terrying new enemy whose diabolical agenda is worse than any they have encountered before. 

With the clock ticking and thousands of lives at stake, Space Team must race across the galaxy, stop Manacle's evil scheme, and save the day once more. 

But first, they have to escape....

Featuring space gnomes, sand stomachs, and the sexiest facial paralysis in history, Space Team: Sting of the Mustard Mines is the 10th explosive adventure in the Space Team series, and the perfect jumping-on point for new listeners.

The Amazing Duo Barry and Phil do it again!

Barry's writing and humor is witty and hilarious. I've enjoyed the outtakes in the last 3 books I believe where Phil just cracks up as he seems to be reading the story for the first time. That alone tells me that he loves the characters just as we do and always puts 110% in his work. On a side note I had assumed that Phil did the characters separately but nope, he does them all on the fly.

On a separate note I've seen authors become lazy with their characters and their follow up books tend to flop but Barry hits each book in this series out of the ballpark.

Highlights were: the regeneration of Cal's limbs, all five of them. Finding out where Mustard comes from and how Mustard Custard is something that should never be made...ever. The Kermit joke. The "manly" villain. The "sarlac-like" creature and why I realize that Boba Fett would never have made it out. But most especially Loren's best friend from the academy, Garunk. All I can say is that he/she/it was very "cheeky",

I hope Garunk returns back again. lol

great book and love the outtakes at the end!

as usual a hilarious installment of Space Team. Also, I've loved the last few books by this duo that have included outtakes at the end! I wish everyone did this.

Keeps on Going!

You'd think that after so many books this story would be getting old. In fact, I thought the last book was a good place to stop, but somehow the plot is just so dang complicated and convoluted in just the right proportions and Phil Thron is such a masterful narrator that I can't stop listening.

A great episode for fans of the series

Overall, if you are a fan of this series then you will love this book. It's one of the better entries of the series, and the combination of Barry J. Hutchison's writing and Phil Thron's performance had me laughing out loud as I listened.

This is book 10 in the long-running series, and while it's an excellent entry in the long-rjnning series, it's not a good starting point for those new to the series. As an example, early in the book the main character heals rapidly. How and why he can do this is never explained. Fans of the series know why, of course, but if you were reading the book cold it might have been easy to get lost. This book is the start of a new trilogy so there were characters and storylines that felt like they didnt fit. First part of the book, the crew meets a new character on an alien planet, only to take off, leave him behind, and the real story begins. is this a setup that will pay off in future books? Only time will tell, but I was left wondering about the new character. there seemed to be a story there yet to be told.

I highly recommend not only this book but the whole series. If you are new to the series, however, you might want to start from the beginning and work your way to this entry as it's not a good starting point for newbies. As part of a bigger whole, though, it's an excellent episode and I am looking forward to the continuing adventures of Space Team
