for review

Another one I should have written at once!

You really have to listen to book 1 first!

Ok, so, what can I say that is not a total spoiler. Earth is overrun by ferals because some stupid aliens messed up. And now they cure humans and use them as super soldiers. In comes janitors who take over a ship and, well things happened, and now they are on their way to earth.

It's quite the crew and are they the best? Eh, no not really, but they know what they know and they do it their way. With humour and lots of shenanigans.

Was it Hines funny? In a way yes, but it was also different from his other works. Not as light. It is also not the best book to be listening to when you are really tired. Poor book. So even though I enjoyed it, it also made me fall asleep

I enjoyed it, and at the same time it I could not keep my attention on it. So I am torn

The Krakau came to Earth in the year 2104. By 2105, humanity had been reduced to shambling, feral monsters. In the Krakau's defense, it was an accident, and a century later, they did come back and try to fix us. Sort of. It's been four months since Marion "Mops" Adamopoulos learned the truth of that accident. Four months since she and her team of hygiene and sanitation specialists stole the EMCS Pufferfish and stopped a bioterrorism attack against the Krakau homeworld. Four months since she set out to find proof of what really happened on Earth all those years ago. Between trying to protect their secrets and fighting the xenocidal Prodryans, who've been escalating their war against everyone who isn't Prodryan, the Krakau have their tentacles full. To discover the truth, Mops and her rogue cleaning crew will have to do the one thing she fears most: return to Earth, a world overrun by feral apes, wild dogs, savage humans, and worse. (After all, the planet hasn't been cleaned in a century and a half!) What Mops finds in the filthy ruins of humanity could change everything, assuming she survives long enough to share it. Perhaps humanity isn't as dead as the galaxy thought.

  6. I liked this one. I'm glad we got the follow up from the first book and kind of put things "right," but left room for more, if the author chooses. But the first one was better.

    1. I did like that one more, I also think audio this time wasn't for me. I can't blame it all on late night and darkness
