Publisher’s Description: The Krakau came to Earth in the year 2104. By 2105, humanity had been reduced to shambling, feral monsters. In the Krakau’s defense, it was an accident, and a century later, they did come back and try to fix us. Sort of. It’s been four months since Marion “Mops” Adamopoulos learned the truth of that accident. Four months since she and her team of hygiene and sanitation specialists stole

A worthy follow up to Terminal Rising by Jim C. Hines. Plenty of laugh out loud moments and proof that humanity will not be saved by the rich and powerful, but those who clean our toilets and guard our culture.

Oh, so good. The story really gets into the conspiracy and some of the inter-species politics while still having fast-moving adventures for the individual characters. The writing is super funny and imaginative-- I may have convinced my spouse to read it based on how a drain snake and pipe sealant are used in battle scenarios. It feels like there will either be a bit of a cast change in book 3 or [mini-spoiler?] the story focus will expand to cover characters in more places in the galaxy. The nex ...more

Received an arc from netgalley. I really enjoyed the first book, Terminal Alliance, and this book is even better in my opinion. Highly recommend it!

True Rating 4.5 stars!

I have been looking forward to reading Terminal Uprising because I couldn’t wait to pick up where the story from Terminal Alliance had left off! Marion “Mops” Adamopoulos is back with her crew but this time they are looking for answers in the most dangerous of places, Earth! In this book, the crew of the EMCS Pufferfish are fugitives with plenty of heat coming down on them. What they should be doing is looking for a place to hide but there are situations brewing that they j

TLDR; Must Read, well worth it at thrice the price.



What would you do if you awoke from a coma in a hospital, and the Doctors’ had told you that you made yourself go insane before, and had mindlessly killed someone? What if the Doctors found you and took you in, fixed your mind, trained you, made you tougher, and gave you a job?

Would you feel guilty? Thankful?

What would you do if you found out

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book as an ARC from the publisher.

If you liked “Terminal Alliance”, you’ll love “Terminal Uprising”. If, like me, you were more on the fence about “Alliance”, I’d certainly encourage you to give “Terminal Uprising a try.

“Uprising” is much more certain of its characters and the world around them. Where I thought that “Alliance” often used humor as a crutch to help prop up the plot (They’re janitors! Look at everything we can do with cleaning supplies! I

I love Mops and her crew. When last seen they had left in the Pufferfish and I was left wondering what they would get up to. Seems that they have spent the last few months dodging capture and as this adventure opens they are sent off on a mission to Earth. What follows is a plot full of action, adventure, tension, danger and discovery. Once again their janitorial skills come in handy in defeating the enemy. I really liked how the crew changed and grew as they faced events that were both dangerou ...more

A more than satisfying follow-up to the wonderfully funny 'Terminal Alliance'. Mops and her crew return to Earth, meet the Librarians (immune humans who take care of Earth's literature), fight the bad guys using cleaning supplies (and guns, but mostly cleaning supplies) and save the day, once again. They also run into feral dachshunds....much scarier than you would think! I loved the character growth and the new characters made me want more, more and more. I can't wait to see where this crew of ...more

Nicely done.

Man, I really like this series. The characters are marvelous, their ingenuity boundless. And I will be forever grateful for the heading to Chapter 3, "To Court!" to which I kept going back and rereading and giggling. I look forward (patiently) to the next book.

A joy to read just like all the other Jim C. Hines books I've read. I stayed up into the wee hours reading most of the book in one day after work.

Book 2 does not disappoint as the janitors head to the most dangerous place in the universe...Earth.

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 4 support personnel for every 1 grunt dude...and that 4 people includes air crew and pilots. But do
