"This was a fun read, with a great storyline - enter the all- knowing mob, the low-life union boss who cares more about his money than he does about people, and of course the fledgling entrepreneur who is just trying to run his business. Mix them all up, with a couple of corrupt individuals, and a whole lot of interesting action, and voila, you have a great book." - Todd Kennedy
"Does a great job of talking through some serious issues while keeping lots of action and adventure in the mix. I thoroughly enjoyed it." - Steven Wade
"Fans of the first book will find plenty to enjoy here. It moves just as smoothly, the characters are the same likable folks we got to know from the previous adventure, and the villains are just sleazy enough to be convincing without coming off as caricatures." - marc a. gayan
"We've gotten to know the characters better, and this book starts with a simple job on Mars that sets Nathan Teller, Captain of the Blue Moon Bandit with a moral choice that hangs over his head the rest of the novel." - Lcthulou
"I appreciate the way the crew prefers to resolve problems without violence, if possible. Of course, dealing with criminals doesn’t make that easy." - Larry Ransonon"
"Overall, the story was well played out. Another plus is that although this book is the second in a series, it stood on its own. I didn't feel that I missed any pertinent information from Book 1." - JavaDavis
