My latest read was Breakaway by Craig Alanson. This is the twelfth book in the Expeditionary Force series, the continuing escapades of Joe, Skippy and the Merry Band of Pirates. Alanson continues to add interesting elements and plt turns to the story.
Breakaway: Expeditionary Force #12
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 its 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.
