Had I missed something? I was sure I had picked up the next book in the series, and I know that nothing that serious had happened at the end of the last book. But here was Jason and Lucky, alone, running a cargo hauling operation on a different vessel, rather than the Phoenix. So what happened to the rest of the crew and the ship?
I soon realised that I had the right book, but this one was going to be different, and that something catastrophic had happened to the crew. And that made this one of the most interesting reads in the series yet, as I was instantly drawn in to know what had happened to everyone. It shows just how good Dalzelle’s writing is, that you have such a connection to the crew of the Phoenix that you must find out what has happened to them.
On top of that, his writing is so good, that you are instantly sucked into the story of what happened.
In the middle of all of this, there is an overarching plot that Jason and Lucky have stumbled across. A young girl, Kalette, who is the First Attendant to the Heir to the Throne of the Empire, stows aboard their ship in an attempt to flee captors.
We soon learn that the Heir, the Netjere, has been captured and the future of the Galaxy is possibly in peril, for if the Netjere is killed, it could mean a Galactic war.
And this is where the book really ramps up.
I'm not going to give anything away, no spoilers, but as usual, Dalzelle gives us another exceptional story that is action packed, thrilling, with brilliant characters, and most importantly of all, a lot of fun.
And this is what makes Dalzelle stand out – his books are a lot of fun, as reading should be.
Although his books do have a serious edge at times, and they certainly have the battles and fights that we expect in this sort of genre, but it fully entwined with a generous amount of humour, wit and some really clever banter between the crew that will have you in stiches.
As with the other books, the Character work is outstanding. There is a lot of work in this genre, and this is another reason that Dalzelle so easily stands out, His creative, fascinating and engaging characters that are so realistic, so in-depth, and so very emotive. Dalzelle uses his characters to easily convey to the reader the nature of the situation, the emotional state of his character, and he does it with such consummate ease. You really feel like you know these people, and are there with them in the room.
With each book, the writing gets stronger, and the story of Omega Force gets more interesting, this book and the series are amazing, and a must read for any Sci-Fi fan.
Still, this book represents a major shift in the story-line. Not so much with the Omega Force, but with some of the surrounding characters. The author explains what he’s doing a the end of the book and it’s a good thing. I really like the characters that form the Omega Force and that group is not apparently going to change. I’m not exactly sure how they will continue, although they might now have a very powerful backer who is indebted to the Omega Force as he said, in a way that can never be fully repaid. Jason has also met up with another guy who appears to be on the shady side, but that’s not a given. This guy has tons of money and has already bailed Jason out when he needed it the most without asking for anything in return. Captain Burke did pay the guy off, but only because he didn’t want to be asked to do some kind of distasteful “favor” for this new benefactor. I don’t know if their relationship will last, but he could be a new player in the series.
It is interesting that Captain Jason Burke is always the one to get the girl, so to speak. It seems like every time they are helping someone, there is a very beautiful human-type female involved and they take a very quick romantic interest in Jason. It’s not that Jason goes looking for this, he’s just that lucky, I guess. He crew don’t seem to really mind, although I’m not sure why they haven’t taken on clients that are from some of their other races. Again, being the Captain even with this crew has it’s advantages. And, it’s not like any of the other crew has come up with a female of their species that wants to fly around with them.
Ok, so I’ve tried to be quite mysterious about the story-line in this book. it’s not something you will expect, but it does have significant repercussions on the rest of the series. In one regards, it makes it where the series can continue with the Omega Force a little more independent. They might also find a “home base” in which to reside while not actively assisting some one. As it was, they either just flew aimlessly through space or crashed a short while on the Defiant, but didn’t have a really good rest and recuperate location. I think they will establish one now. It’s going to be up to the author as to how much they can actually use this new down-time location.
The next book in the series, “Omega Force: Human Factor” is already published and, of course, I have it. I can’t wait to read it, but I will have to read other books in-between this one so as not to finish the series before I really want to do so. That’s the bad part of a really good series, they always have to end at some point. Still, it sounds as though this author will continue writing Omega Force books as long as we buy and read them. Keep’em coming!
In the end everyone comes back together and this time there is a little mystery tied into the adventure.

The ending felt rushed and the resolutions were too far out of character. The author allowed his desire to close off part of the universe and characters to over influence the plot. It just did not feel right. Hence the 4 stars for what would otherwise be a 5 star story
Like the idea of the 'pruning', some characters were getting a bit well, boring.
Not going to give any plot suppliers but I do hope the next instalment is not far away.
It isn't all black and white.Story, characters and author mature.
Still a great "Bang Bang" tale of adventure and now now hints of deceptions and larger issues surface.
Maybe in the next one they will discover the virtues of the military, with honest orders.
Great read and waiting for "The Human Factor"
