March Books 17) Sky Pirates!, by Dave Stone

'You've had more experience with the man. It doesn't always end like that, does it?' She realized that Benny was of a sudden looking slightly nervous. 'Does it?'

After some very downbeat New Adventures in my recent reading, it was good to read one that deliberately and successfully played up the comedy - this often misfires for me, but in this case I was able to roll with the very alien creatures and their sinister plans while also sympathising very much with the confused new companions Roz and Chris; like them, I was never completely convinced that I knew what was going on, but it was fun and kept me engaged.
