    Book two in this fun series and it was every bit as good as book one Mops and her team still have control of the Pufferfish and they end up back on Earth which is still under the control of the Krakau Feral humans are everywhere but there is also a small band of normal humans who were somehow immune to the initial plague Of course they are Librarians this is Hines writing after all and they are living in secret whilst preserving Earth s history and knowledge Many other things are happening Book two in this fun series and it was every bit as good as book one Mops and her team still have control of the Pufferfish and they end up back on Earth which is still under the control of the Krakau Feral humans are everywhere but there is also a small band of normal humans who were somehow immune to the initial plague Of course they are Librarians this is Hines writing after all and they are living in secret whilst preserving Earth s history and knowledge Many other things are happening too and Mops again demonstrates her amazing ability to get everyone out of the tightest of corners Lots of action, lots of fun, this was a really good read

    Book 2 does not disappoint as the janitors head to the most dangerous place in the universeEarth.It s like Jim C Hines looked into my soul and saw exactly what I wanted in a military space opera.I love milSFF, but I ve been so damn tired of the over used grunt pilot tropes that float around Yes yes yes, infantry and pilots are the fighters, but hear me out on this In current times, we ve got four support personnel for every 1 grunt dude honestly the number is probably higher but I m too l Book 2 does not disappoint as the janitors head to the most dangerous place in the universeEarth.It s like Jim C Hines looked into my soul and saw exactly what I wanted in a military space opera.I love milSFF, but I ve been so damn tired of the over used grunt pilot tropes that float around Yes yes yes, infantry and pilots are the fighters, but hear me out on this In current times, we ve got four support personnel for every 1 grunt dude honestly the number is probably higher but I m too lazy to look it up and that four people includes air crew and pilots But do we have a lot of fiction SFF or otherwise that reflects the support personnel Think of all the stories featuring SEALs, Force Recon, Delta Force, CIA boom booms, Rangers, fighter pilots and other high speed, low drag bubbas and their SF counterparts.Can you think of one military space opera where the MC isn t infantry pilot gunner person Nope view spoiler Ok, I can think of a couple, but most were written a while ago and the point stands there s a 10,000 to 1 ratio hide spoiler view spoiler And no, Star Trek doesn t count hide spoiler So I m super excited by military space janitors And the concept works so damn well too.Also, I felt like this book really came into its own The first book was a little jarring and disjointed, but this one flowed smoothly There was the usual bumbling, but it didn t feel like they were blindly staggering from incident to incident There was a purpose and an active plotline throughout the story.Of course, I could be biased because view spoiler there are librarians who are the saviors of the remains of humanity and I um, am a librarian hide spoiler but eh.Just read it.The stakes are higher The action isintense And it s a fun ride all the way through.Oh, and Puffy gets an upgrade.A maniacal, scary upgrade.That may or may not involve a battle mop.Yeah You read that right.Battle Mop.I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review

    Hines second outing with the hero Janitors involves Mops and crew going back to Earth There are references to Farscape living ships , Willard Scott, and sports as well as possible current US politics I like the sports in this book It is also a love novel to books and libraries While I didn t find the novel as funny the first one in the series, it is still an excellent book In part, this is because, like Terry Pratchett, Jim C Hines heroes are those that would not have even been mention Hines second outing with the hero Janitors involves Mops and crew going back to Earth There are references to Farscape living ships , Willard Scott, and sports as well as possible current US politics I like the sports in this book It is also a love novel to books and libraries While I didn t find the novel as funny the first one in the series, it is still an excellent book In part, this is because, like Terry Pratchett, Jim C Hines heroes are those that would not have even been mentioned in the epic fantasy or sci fi This is only one reason why Hines is really deserves the title of America s Answer to Terry Pratchett Mops and her crew of janitors are heroes with such a level of doneness that it is wonderful The janitor crew travels to Earth because of certain rumors involving whether or not there might be change in feral humans They discover a bitabout the lies that were revealed in the first book Hines also gives a solution to that plot and brings up another plot thread to lead into the next book The ending report of this book is so wonderfully funny It is also important to note that unlike much writing where the motives of the evil doers are never fully examined, Hines does the opposite The motivates of the head boss are examined This is something that is rarely done Further, this is a book where the ones in command positions are all female But honesty, the price of the book is well worth reading Doc s interrogation scene

    In Terminal Alliance Jim Hines sensational space opera, a motley crew of bio engineered janitors is forced to step up and save the universe After a bio weapon decimates the alien Krakau command crew on the space cruiser EMCS Pufferfish, Marion Mops Adamopoulos, the senior, and very smart, janitor, and her small crew of cleanup specialists thwarts the savage alien Prodryan s plan for universal conquest, while learning the truth about what caused humanity s descent into feral cannibalistic be In Terminal Alliance Jim Hines sensational space opera, a motley crew of bio engineered janitors is forced to step up and save the universe After a bio weapon decimates the alien Krakau command crew on the space cruiser EMCS Pufferfish, Marion Mops Adamopoulos, the senior, and very smart, janitor, and her small crew of cleanup specialists thwarts the savage alien Prodryan s plan for universal conquest, while learning the truth about what caused humanity s descent into feral cannibalistic behavior on Earth hint it was not because of something humans did, there was an outside agency involved and simultaneously having to figure out how to pilot and defend the ship in space battles While Hines milks the entire janitor motif to the hilt, he combines a sharp wit and sly humor as he skewers a lot of sf tropes in this super fun read We needbooks like Terminal Alliance in science fiction Terminal Uprising , Hines humorous follow up to the terrific Terminal Alliance continues Mops and her crew s adventures Now free from Krakuan dominance, Mops and her crew are piloting their stolen space cruiser, the Pufferfish, but running into issues with supplies Admiral Pachelbel, a Krakuan, who wants to do the right thing has provided information to Mops, which requires them to pick up Cate, a Prodryan lawyer, with all the nasty lawyer tricks, with a secret agenda and everyone has a secret agenda Pachelbel wants Mops to go back to Earth, which is guarded by the Krakua space force, because there have been sightings on Earth of non feral humans During her trip to get Cate, Mops slyly defeats an Krakua armada trying to capture her ship with another awesome display of alien anatomy and janitorial knowledge Continuing their journey to Earth, Mops continues her talent for milking all of the alien races fear of human warrior talents One of the story elements of Terminal Alliance is that the Krakuan s bio engineered most humans into ferocious unstoppable space warriors, who they have been using to dominate the universe While they breach the Krakuan space barrier surrounding on Earth, Mops, Cate, Monroe and Wolf, one of her crewmates, and a woman who really wants to be a warrior, if she only could shoot straight, get to the surface, but lose their shuttle, while the rest of the crew hide in space.On Earth, Mops and her cohort find the non feral survivors living in fortified underground towns Its not that people have found a cure Rather, some people were just immune from the bio weapon that decimated Earth s populous But Mops and her crew and the earthlings come under attack from Krakuan forces illegally on Earth It seems like there is another secret plot afoot to keep the Krakuans in power Since Mops crew defeated the Procydans, some Krakuans think they need help to stop the surging Procydans from destroying the universe In the ensuing confrontation, the human survivors of Earth and Mops ragtag group of janitors will have to use all of their wits and strategically placed cleaning supplies to defeat the Krakuan traitors There are some very good scenes here Confrontations between Mops and the evil Krakuans and between Wolf and the earthlings Besides Hines witty prose and humor, what made Terminal Alliance such a fun read was three things the juxtaposition of Mops lowly janitor position with the saving the universe plot, the likability of the characters and a fast moving adventure story set in different alien locations In Terminal Uprising, Hines shifts the setting to Earth, and away from space battles, and the action involves a whole new group of characters There is less journeying around the universe meeting new aliens andstationary settings I think this detracted a bit from the freshness of the first book Maybe it s just hard to still milk the same jokes as is the first novel But I think it s also hard to strike lightning in a bottle This is a really good novel, a fun read that will keep you fully engaged, and for a second book in a trilogy itthan holds its own against other books out there Its just not as fun a read as Terminal Alliance.But it s definitely worth a read In the crowded field of fantasy, paranormal superheroes and fantasy mystery mashups, it s good to pick up a fun witty sf space opera novel filled with likable characters and humorous situations Snap up the pair

    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 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 asleepI enjoyed it, and at the same time it I could not keep my attention on it So I am tornThe narrator was a first for me, and I did enjoy her style

    In the second installment of The janitors of The Post Apocalypse our beloved team goes to Earth to search for some sentient people They of course find trouble there, but also some allies I liked this one eventhan a first book, probably because now I could feel fully attached to characters as I know them better Mops grows on me as protagonist and I loved that Wolf had a voice, too It was full fun adventure, and it seems it s not, yet, the end, so I hope to seeof our janitors.

    Picking up a few months after the conclusion of Terminal Alliance, Terminal Uprising brings listeners up to speed on unlikely heroine Marion Mops Adamopoulos and the crew of the EMCS Pufferfish They are wanted by the Krakau Alliance for rebellion, but it s really because they know the true cause of the virus that wiped out humanity, turning humans into mindless zombies The group continues to receive support on the sly from Admiral Pachelbel, who puts the crew in touch with a genocidal Prodry Picking up a few months after the conclusion of Terminal Alliance, Terminal Uprising brings listeners up to speed on unlikely heroine Marion Mops Adamopoulos and the crew of the EMCS Pufferfish They are wanted by the Krakau Alliance for rebellion, but it s really because they know the true cause of the virus that wiped out humanity, turning humans into mindless zombies The group continues to receive support on the sly from Admiral Pachelbel, who puts the crew in touch with a genocidal Prodryan named Advocate of Violence, or Kate for short The crew of the Pufferfish must return to Earth and uncover deadly secrets before it s too late.Terminal Uprising is an entertaining space adventure with a spunky heroine and her cast of unlikely heroes Humans have been taught they are stupid and need the help of the Krakau to survive I loved watching the crew come into their own, learning and growing beyond what they believed capable Mops is a great character one of those underdogs who is destined forThe David to the EMC s Goliath I love how Mops thinks things through and how loyal she is to her crew She was born to be a great leader and through this series of unfortunate events, she s coming into her own I enjoyed sitting back and listening to Mops figure it all out, never second guessing her analysis.The side characters are equally fun and interesting They each play their part and through Mops s leadership, form a team and family And though working as a team under stressful situations, each character grows and matures Additionally, the story is filled with silly humor and fun pop culture references I love the world building how detailed each species is and the depth of the entire human history The different creatures are creative and interesting Narration Overall, the performance by Ms Mitchell is solid and entertaining The story is primarily shared via the third person POV of Mops, but it is also shared from the POVs of a couple of the supporting characters While the narrator maintains the same voice, Ms Mitchell gives just enough variation between the different characters that I was able to know who was speaking just by voice Additionally, the narrator gives each character it s own suitable flair the mechanical feel of the Grom, no nonsense from Monroe, calm wonder from Kumar, and guns blazing Wolff Terminal Uprising is an enjoyable and humorous tale with a lot of heart I love the David versus Goliath story and how determined Mops is to survive and uncover the truth, while maintaining her morality and genuine kindness.My Rating B Narration B Review copy provided by Tantor Audio
