Being caught helping his brother to pass his exams at the Space Academy by giving him the answers, Jules Truffaut is kicked out of Union Astronautica Space Fleet. For months he works towards one goal: to get airborne. He stows away on the spaceship headed for Coyote but he gets caught. He steals the shuttle and lands on the planet where he is arrested. He hoped to ask for asylum when he landed but instead he knows with the charges against him that the Chief Magistrate will deport him. P Before he goes in front of the judge, billionaire Morgan Goldstein visits Jules in his prison cell the wealthy man offers a proportion to the prisoner. He gives Jules a chance to become a crew member of the Pride of Cucamonga en route to the Rho Coronae Borealis System in order to make a trade pact with the elder species the hjadd. If he agrees all charges will be dropped and he will receive asylum. He agrees to go on the mission. P When the crew reach their destination, a cultural misunderstanding turns disastrous. Jules and his mates take part on a dangerous mission that more than likely will mean their death, but correcting the blunder is critical. If they succeed the hjadd will reconsider allowing humanity into the Talus, an organization of highly sentient races who exchange science and technological advances. P Set in the same universe as the Coyote trilogy, GALAXY BLUES is a rip roaring electrifying space opera in which humans are infants compared to the elder races. Readers will thoroughly enjoy learning about the hjadd and their strong unconscious belief in their superiority to the visiting barbaric mankind. Jules is an interesting antihero who tries to disapprove the hjadd perception that advanced technology equates to superior culture and species. Fans will appreciate his efforts. P Harriet Klausner

While this was not as satisfying as other books in this series, the new directions promise interesting future stories.

A bit lighter than some of the others from this series, with a different voice that I enjoyed. Somehow this kept making me think of one of my favorite anime series, Cowboy Bebop. The first person perspective was refreshing and engaging.

Doesn't quite have the intensity of the main Coyote series. The story is somewhat predictable, but still a very good read. If the Galaxy Blues is a start on expanding Coyote to off-world stories, then the ship's crew is an excellent start on development. I'd like to see more of Coyote's people and influence included, to tie the stories more closely to Coyote.
