Captain Bartholomew Quasar: Starfaring Adventures (Captain Bartholomew Quasar #2) - Milo James Fowler

 

This book had me laughing many times. It is a parody of a sci-fi space opera, and Milo James Fowler's use of the corny is genius! 
Captain Bartholomew Quasar is commander of the Effervescent Magnitude that is sent on an exploratory mission for resources into outer space for a type of quartz. They seem to attract trouble like a magnet though. There is a bounty on him from some spider-like creatures because he and his crew accidentally blew one of their ships out of the sky, killing everyone on board. While trying to dodge them, he gets drawn into an ancient civil war between 2 other civilizations. But, never the daunted, Captain Quasar is confident that his dashing smile (with teeth so sparkling white that are capable of blinding others), his Commander pose (meant to best display his biceps and pecs), and his charming good looks can be used to his best advantage (along with his ship's superior technology) to save the day. 
I won a copy of this book in a giveaway from the author-- thank you!
