Carl Ramsey is an ex-Earth Navy fighter pilot turned con man. His ship, the Mobius, is home to a ragtag crew of misfits and refugees looking to score a big payday but more often just scratching to pay for fuel. The crew consists of his ex-wife (and pilot), a drunkard, four-handed mechanic, a xeno-predator with the disposition of a 120kg housecat, and the galaxy's most-wanted wizard.
Along the way, the Mobius crew crosses paths with the Black Ocean's vilest scum, from pirate fleets to criminal syndicates, and most law-abiding scum, including Earth Interstellar Enhanced Investigative Organization, ARGO high command, and the Convocation of Wizards.
Time and again, riches lie just out of reach, because for all the talents Carl Ramsey and his crew possess, they've also got an outlaw's greatest weakness: a conscience.
Galaxy Outlaws is a collection of all 16 Black Ocean missions chronicling the adventures of the starship Mobius and her crew, along with six short stories. This series is the perfect cure for the Firefly Season 2 blues. It's what you'd get if The Orville took place on Serenity, or if Star Wars had wizards instead of Jedi.

Firefly cranked up on Meth plus a Space Wizard!
Wowza. This is one huge book collection. 87 hours is three and a half days. That is like starting on Monday and finishing on Thursday with no breaks. That alone makes it worth the singular credit that you spend on this massive tome of excellence. Oh, did I say excellence? Yes, indeed I did.
Let me Start off with talking about Naramore's narration. I've gotten to know him pretty well from the Sensation series by Kevin Hardman. I have long respected his work, and to be frank he is the reason that I found this book. I was looking through other books he had narrated, and found this baby. I was interested when I saw it was a complete collection, then I read the description and thought, "Holy Crap, this is right up my alley!" Then I saw how frikkin long it was was and realize what a steal I'd be getting. I said, hmmm cool story, Naramore, and days worth of listening. So I couldn't pass this up. Naturally, Naramore lives up to my expectations. He brings each character to life from the wiseacre captain to the drunk mechanic. You will really get to know them by the end of this book. When they are gone you will wonder where your friends have gone, because you will have logged some serious time. Enough time that you will feel like an honorary member of the crew.
Now as for the story, Morin brings this to life to a point that you will feel like the crew and their exploits really happen in a galaxy far far away. Of course you'll feel that way when you see they have a space wizard. That not withstanding this has more of a Firefly feel to it than anything else, since they are smugglers but in the same breath I could call this the extended crew of the Millenium Falcon sans Han and Chewy. Every character is interesting, and has a great back story that comes out during the series.
I will say that the writing is great, and there is action aplenty, and many a close call for the crew to narrowly avoid (sometimes not so unscathed). The plots are fast paced, and riveting in that they will really hold your attention. My problem was I had to keep shutting down, and not wanting to do so. It was hard to find a break or lull that I could happily quit for the night and not wonder what was going to happen next.
This is a wonderful series, and it is well worth the single credit it takes to buy it. I can't stress how fun and exciting the series actually was for me. If you like sci-fi or have the smuggler's blues then this is the series for you. This is for fans of Firefly, Star Wars, Star Trek, and even BattleStar Galactica. You will not go wrong with this series. Don't miss out!!! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
If this review helped, please press the YES below. Thank you immensely!!!

85+ Hours Of Grand Galactic Outlaw Hijinks!
And YOU think that you've got problems? --- Try having your three time ex-wife and former Marine as your ship's pilot, an oversized cat who's always looking for a fight as your security officer, a four handed alcoholic as your engineering officer trying to keep your patched together ship running, a naivete former priestess out to reform you and your crew of their evil ways, and the galaxies most notorious and wanted WIZARD as your not always so loyal crew who really don't take your position as Ship's Captain all that seriously. All as you just try to FINALLY latch onto that Big Payday while avoiding not only The Authorities, but the nefarious Major Corporations, Alien Empires, Crime Syndicates, Space Pirates, Wizard Assassins, and your own conman parents! = A Whole LOT of fun filled action packed adventures with a host of interesting characters in a very well imagined universe.
JS Morin has created one GREAT series, and Mikael Naramore does an EXCELLENT job of bringing it all to audible life!!!
DO NOT PASS THIS ONE UP!!!!

This series has been my listening life for nearly 2 weeks and now it's over... I'm not sure what I'm going to with myself! It definitely fills the gaping hole left by firefly but also leaves you wanting more.

Great story, loved it
This was brilliant. Really love it. The British accents need a bit of work in my opinion but wasn't even close to enough to spoil my enjoyment. Absolutely fantastic.
