Book #25–Captain’s Share

51Pw1PnqF0L__SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_I read this last year, but realized I never wrote about it. When I grabbed the last book in the series, I had to go back and read this one to get caught up.

Captain’s Share is a few years after Double Share. Ismael is a first mate, with the same ship from Full Share, but the new captain. He’s at a crossroads in life, married to Jen, but unhappy. She’s upset he’s gone, and he knows this is bad.

When the ship docks at a port, he’s told to report for his captain’s exam. He does, and by the time he gets home, he’s informed he’s a captain. After a fight with Jen, she realizes this is his life and they part on better terms. Maloney, the owner, has come to him with an offer. Take the worst ship in the fleet, a small hauler, and become captain.

He does, and in Ismael fashion, he turns the ship around. In some ways, it’s like Quarter Share again, but from a different point of view as we watch him build a team and a ship. It’s a great transform, and one I enjoyed.

You need to at least read Double Share before this one.
