Breakaway: Expeditionary Force, Book 12 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Expeditionary Force saga continues with Breakaway, the eagerly awaited sequel to number-one Audible-ranked and New York Times best-selling Brushfire, from an epic sci-fi writer at the top of his game. Join the millions of listeners who have enjoyed R.C. Bray’s hilarious portrayal of Joe, Skippy, The Merry Band of Pirates, and so many other unforgettable characters.
The Merry Band of Pirates offered the bad guys a ceasefire. We won’t mess with them, if they don’t mess with us. Easy, right?
The aliens chose to do things the hard way. So, the Pirates are racing around the galaxy to clean up the threat to Earth. The infant UN Navy has their own mission with the Alien Legion: Get humanity some allies in the fight. And the Ethics & Compliance Office might have to do something...ethical. Unless they can find a way around it.

the end of the last book, Joe Bishop (and the whole of Earth) find that
being, finally, an acknowledged player on the galactic board is still no
bed of roses. In particular, both of the galaxy's opposing senior species
have united to discourage any of their patrons from giving Earth the time
of day, and the Awful Kitties have gone so far as to launch a gas cloud
from Jupiter to occlude the sun and throw Earth into an Ice Age, gambling
that it won't be enough to get the humans to push the "destroy everything"
button, and that since they have no other options with their fourth tier
technology, they will look like losers, totally cutting off the chances
of them pulling any clients away.
As usual, after much angst, Joe has an idea -- and it will mean,
oddly, messing with the nicest of the aliens...
I enjoyed this entry well enough, but if the idea is to end the war,
something Emily Perkins proposed several books ago, the setup is taking
quite a while, and in some respects this feels like another "middle" book.

We got Joe and Skippy which is good news but the book had them running all around, and it felt like they were not really part of the story. And when they had a good line to ride, it ended as a summary. Really poor character progression or story telling. A bunch of context was included, which at points was boring.
However, ExForce did had a lot going on. Guess their sales are not doing that good, so they were out here to hijack the focus.
I hope the next book is just Joe, Skippy and the Merry Band, with impossible missions, intelligently written.
This book had multiple parallel and intersecting stories, with an expanded cast of characters which was at times difficult to follow when one paragraph ended with one group in the middle of a mission and the next started somewhere else with another group, it often took me a few lines to catch up.
We still have Bishop, Skippy (the magnificent) and the Merry Band of Pirates carrying out impossible missions and making us laugh out loud several times.
