Some buzzkills out there give 1or 2 stars to the books in the series because they don’t get Awesomeness of Skippy and Joe Bishop. This is science fiction. The Mcguffins (plot enhancing scientific devices) are so creative and entertaining to move this dazzling universe into some exceptional page turning fun.
I have to say the banter between Joe and Skippy have me rolling with laughter and finds me busting out laughing to very serious “beat downs” of quasi superior beings in the galaxy.
The author, Craig Alanson has a real twisted imagination. If I could, I would love to crack open a few with the guy. I want to watch his neural synapses work in real time and hear firsthand how he developed these wonderful characters.
I can’t wait for the next book!
I will not post details of the story because you need to read it yourself, but I'll just say I have NO IDEA how this will wrap up in 3 more books. I'm thinking 6 or 7 more books would be better.
All in all it's a solid 4 stars or 4.5 even though it feels like something is missing in the secret sauce.
ran another of his specialty cons and convinced the galaxy's (hostile)
senior species that the Earth (with the help of the Elder AI Skippy)
had the power to disrupt the wormhole networks which enable practical
interstellar travel. In fact, that was not true, and the time is
rapidly coming when the bluff will be exposed. In particular the
Awful Kitties have dispatched a cloud of riven Jovian atmosphere
to pass between the Earth & Sun, which will cause an ice age if it
cannot be dispersed, and have encouraged an "hey it wasn't us!"
attack by a client species on Earth itself. Joe's superiors (who
don't know about the bluff) are about to order him to unleash the
non-existent kraken on the Kitties.
To make matters worse, there is evidence that one or more Elder
Sentinel has awoken, which is never a good thing (last time took
galactic civilization back to square -1..) and it may be Joe &
Skippy's fault from the wormhole tampering they *did* do.
Once again, it looks like the only thing to do is prepare for the
destruction of Earth by doing what colonization is possible unless
Joe, without his trusted XO flywheel, & Skippy can come up with yet
another plate on a stick.. and Skippy is starting to think there
is another Elder AI out there somewhere keeping them from taking
any of the plates down.
I thought this installment was better than the last outing, and we
are now getting strong hints of endgame. We get a number of
revelations and a really cool (if so far unexplained) final scene.
I did think the Alien Legion Verd mission was just kind of tacked
on and that the humor was more strained than usual. Also, a little
Mopey Joe goes a long way, but still an entertaining outing.
I wonder of we will get to see the alien legion and the mavericks again. The ball of chaos that just got flung into the galaxy as of the conclusion of this story leaves it ripe for story.
I wonder what trouble the squabbling Earth Nations will do now they don't have such a close sword of damocles with George around, even though there is still that cloud of gas and dust.
And Hunanity is probably going to be really bad at galactic empire.
I can't wait to see what happens next.

As always love Craig's take on AI weaponry and the Jeraptha are an inspired race so looking forward to the next novel in the series due later in the year.
Riding to the rescue and saving Earth again.
Now we wait for the next book again, does anyone else think the Author when younger watched a lot of black and white serials with a lot of questions such as will the hero or his girlfriend survive? Tune in next time for another thrilling instalment unfortunately it’s not next week or even next month it’s June.
