Publisher's Summary

There are some things you simply can’t escape. For Van, it’s family.

Out among the stars, his cousin, Carter Yost, drags Van and his team into a criminal ring run by the High Doctor—a dangerous con artist with delusions of grandeur. Working from the abandoned world of Pathway, the High Doctor has created a cult, stealing a fortune from the fearful, sick, and scared.

If there’s one thing Van hates, it’s a bully, and the High Doctor has his full attention. But in order to crush the criminal cult, Van needs bigger, better armor—and that comes with a price.

The rarest metals cost money, and that means doing a few dirty jobs in order to pay for the tools of his trade. Van’s got the will. His team has the skill.

Now, he has to find a way. And the way will surely involve war.

Great series

surprised by the ending - I especially enjoy the portrayal of the variety of aliens and discovering how very different and yet like us they are. The interaction between characters is well done and well, as the main character would say "just plain fun"

Entertaining

I don’t really read Scifi books, but gave the Backyard starship a try before summer. I really enjoy the car actors and story line of the series. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Wonderful.

It was a very satisfying and fun read. Thoroughly enjoyable. Mr. Chaney and Mr. Maggert have created great characters that are fun and that we continue to care about. Can't wait for the next story. Thank you Mr. Chaney and Mr. Maggert.

Engaging ongoing story with plenty of twists.

Loved it. I get very tired of profanity (okay, so I am a prude) so this writing is great yet adult. The character development continues as the story progresses. Lots more plot revealed. look forward to the next in the series.

What a fun ride!

I love Chaney's style with a nice mix of sci-fi techno gee-whiz stuff, skullduggery, and humor.

Not my favorite JN Chaney/Terry Margery book but still dam good!

I like this book! There is a sense of a massive universe that just waiting to be explored and we are scraping the surface. Jeffrey Krafts does a good job and I have no complaints. The story is complex which is both good and bad, in my opinion. It seems there are a lot of storylines, factions, and governments that I’m having trouble keeping track of. I like that the story isn’t so linear but there are other storylines that abrubfdly start and stop which don’t seem to be addressed. Either way I will continue to listen as I still enjoy the series!

Spy vs. Spy

Van and his crew are being challenged by the evil forces in the universe. But there seems to be corruption in Peacemakers Guilde. Excellent story by J.N. Chaney + Terry Maggert. And the many voices from, Jeffrey Kafer. Can't wait to start next book.

only 2 books left 😭

1000% the best audiobook I have listened to so far.
I will recommend any read or listen to this.
But why names the spoiler the Iowa is such an average name for such an average spoiler.

Update: there now 6 new planned instalments so I am happy I just hope it doesn't take too long for them to release.
