Galaxy Outlaws Mission Pack 1: Missions 1-4 (Black Ocean: Galaxy Outlaws) Kindle Edition
The Mobius is a cobbled-together ship with a matching crew. Captain Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy pilot whose crew won’t let him fly his own ship. The pilot is his ex-wife, the mechanic is a drunk, and the chief of security is from a predatory species. Instead of a star-drive to travel through the astral space between worlds, the ship’s wizard does it by hand.
Mission 1: Salvage Trouble
A salvage mission turns into a rescue, and no good deed goes unpunished. With two refugees onboard, the Mobius crew is hounded by bounty hunters, border partols, and corporate enforcers.
Mission 2: A Smuggler’s Conscience
“Don’t open the package.” It’s the smuggler’s credo for good reason. When the Mobius crew takes a peek at their illicit cargo, the entire job takes an about-face.
Mission 3: Poets and Piracy
The Mobius crew gets caught in a turf war between a pirate fleet and a galactic criminal syndicate. The trick is getting everyone out alive (and maybe getting paid in the process).
Mission 4: To Err is Azrin
Sometimes you can’t go home again. When a job takes the crew to their security chief’s homeworld, she gets dragged into a familial power struggle. Can the rest of the crew bail her out of an old feud gone horribly wrong?
Bonus Short Story: Guardian of the Plundered Tomes
Mordecai The Brown has been on the run from the Convocation for decades. How does a respectable wizard with a wife and two kids end up crisscrossing the galaxy in the company of outlaws?
Black Ocean is a science fantasy series set in the 26th century. Do you wish there had been a second season of Firefly? Do you love the irreverent fun of Guardians of the Galaxy? Have you ever wondered how Star Wars would have turned out if Luke and Obi-wan had ditched the rebellion to become smugglers with Han and Chewie? Then Black Ocean is the series for you!
Pick up your copy and aim to misbehave with the crew of the Mobius!

The characters are surprisingly promising but fail to deliver or connect to you. Captain Carl Ramsey is two parts inept and spineless and one part awesome pilot, tactical genius but fails to impress all the same. the Wizard is a grumpy old man who reminds you of an old neighbour who threatens to belt you as a kid for walking too slow past his house. The engineer is a drunk who's witty comments aren't really witty. And the former nun and plastic surgery Barbie is the stupidest almost annoying character in here.
The first book's story was was dull and doesn't impress. the twist isn't predictable but instead was awkward and doesn't match up with the story the story all. It's like everything has been written without a plan and the villain has been picked from the character least seen at the last minute. The Villain also isn't much of a threat of a threat apart from telling on you.
The cat character smack of a thought experiment that asks the question; what if my house cat was 2 metres tall and could talk, what would she be like? Answer - Lame.
And the the Pilot ex-wife is plain, grumpy and mean, who's amin job is to disagree with whoever is in the same room as her while never adding anything to the story.
Best to try something else.

The books have numerous opportunities to build to great climaxes but never manage to capture the moment. There are no space battles at all, no great positions of danger, no great moments of pathos.
So much goes unexplained, like the background, numbers and capabilities of magic and wizards. No real baddies are developed or allies.
If you are looking for holiday read that doesn't require any great concentration and where you could conduct a conversation with your mates at the same time as reading the book then the Mission series will do.
If you are looking for gripping space sci-fi stories with maverick teams, then there are numerous better examples.
A beautifully eclectic mix of characters that each bring their own skills, issues and hangups to a rich and entertaining set of stories.
Great character development and loads of fun to read. Also a load of clever word-play and little Easter eggs.
