The Omega Force crew interact with a group of mercenaries from Earth in order to thwart the dastardly plans.
There are several new characters in this story that I hope will be included in future books in this series.
One thing that I missed was the comradship and banter between the crew of the Phoenix. Not as much in this story as in past installments. It was missed. There is a lot of rough and tumble action to keep the reader involved, as well as some introspective moments as Captain Burke realizes how much he has missed hi home planet. Oh, yeah... Jason finds out that he has *spoiler alert* a son. That alone makes me really look forward to the next installment.
Keep up the good work, Joshua!
It's been a while since I have enjoyed a book as much as I enjoyed this one, which puts the author "under the gun" to get the next episode out! If you've been following this series, what are you waiting for? Buy this book!
It seems that Earth has been busy and not necessarily in a good way. They have managed to colonize another planet which happens to be the domain of another intelligent species who could on a whim wipe out the humans without much trouble. instead, they make a contract with the humans to help them along with their technology in exchange for the parts from the original downed starship that Jason destroyed in his first return to Earth. Unfortunately, the administrator of this new Earth colony, named Terranovus is a full fledged megalomaniac and has diverted this new tech into building her own personal starship armada. She plans to rule the Earth at some point, but first she has a vendetta against Jason Burke. She wants him dead.
A mercenary team of ex-military special forces types is hired and sent out into the void to find Jason and end him. Little do they realize how unprepared and incapable humans are against the vast unknown galaxy. Jason has to find these guys and try to educate them on how things really are in the rest of the galaxy and while doing so, attempt to make sure they don’t get hurt! Then there is also the problem with the aliens that have contracted with Terranovus hiring their own bounty hunter who is very, very capable of ending Jason Burke.
So, as you can read, there are going to be all sorts of fun and games in this book. It might not turn out so well for Earth since the aliens who are involved are highly intelligent if not the bravest of aliens and they want Earth for themselves. Jason has also been branded a bad guy since his last visit to Earth since everyone blames him for the aliens coming there in the first place and tearing the place up trying to chase him down. This is a very interesting book in that the author made an attempt to show Jason Burke through the point of view of other characters. Sometimes he comes off as slightly bizarre, definitely dangerous and extremely violent for little reason.
Jason has to find someone willing to help defend the Earth or he might not have a home to ever return to. And, that gets him to wondering if Earth is still his home or does he even have one? Now that the Omega Force is permanently based a S’Tora, does he really need to be involved in Earth’s affairs? What if he just leaves them to their own defense? That’s probably not going to turn out too well for humans at their current minimal level of technology.
There will be more books in the series and I look forward to that very much. This is a really good space quasi-military science fiction series. Just what I like. The next book, “Omega Force: Revolution” should be out soon, I hope!
