Ozzy sat in a Class-14 Quadruple Engine Electrohydrodynamic Ionic Thruster 113 SX Vessel – fortunately simply known as “the Eagle” – not believing he was on this suicide mission to Earth. Jozi had claimed he needed to do something right for humanity. But this would give him second thoughts on that!
The Dunrakee had detected them which is why his mood had soured. Naturally the enemy warship, hidden on the dark side of the moon, was heading their way. Ozzy asked Jozi if she saw any additional Dunrakee on radar, then yelled when he did not get an answer. But Jozi was checking out why the graviton shields were not coming online, something they should have checked before they departed. And sure enough, several missiles were coming right at them! Zeld ran in and her first comment when she saw the vidscreen was to remark that they were all imbeciles! She dove to Jozi’s seat, knocking her to the floor, as she activated the graviton shields in one fluid motion.
Jonas Moon needed the hidden crystal sphere – an ancient artifact – retrieved from Earth as soon as possible, and this was their mission, so Ozzy had not waited as instructed until Zeld joined them to approach the moon. She was right, but there was no time to argue the point as Ozzy and Jozi rushed off the bridge to down the enemy warship. He fired on the warship, but the warship fired back and exploded the G-114’s. The warship fired missiles, so Ozzy moved below Eagle to temporarily hide, only to see the missile pass then TURN AROUND and come back at him! How could that be? He fired on the missile and it MOVED out of the way! Impossible! It looked like there was no escape this time. Ozzy fired multiple photon blasts at the enemy, rotating his pod in a circle, with 2 seconds left to trick the AI guiding the missile.
Jozi was able to shoot the missile, but it cracked in half and the damaged warhead continued right toward his pod for a collision! He got the pod stopped just inches from the Eagle! Zeld shouted that more ships were leaving Earth but, if they could get the warship shot down in the next 10 minutes, they could cloak themselves and hide on the moon. Ozzy sent multiple weapons fire at the warship – and two hit home. He had done it! But when he radioed Jozi, he got no answer. Zeld reported that her pod was no longer attached and most likely had been disintegrated as a missile was fired at her right before Ozzy destroyed the warship. Could she truly be dead? Was their mission ending here?
Wow, the reader can certainly acknowledge that the action is fast-paced and continuous in this book! The goal of the mission Ozzy is sent on is to find a way to take back Earth from the Dunrakee so that humanity can return to their home planet. It amounts to genocide for the Dunrakee. But somewhere along the way, Ozzy will see that the enemy race is not totally evil. Will that affect the mission directive? Grab your copy, strap into your seat, and enjoy!
What a wild ride! Ozzy, Jozi and Zelda are off to earth to find the crystal that will activate the Arch and end the enemy once and for all! However, once they reach Earth, Zelda takes off on her own, leaving Ozzy and Jozi to stumble after her. They find Earth green and lush, clean air and water with groups of Dunrakee trying to live their lives in peace. It's the Dunrakee governance that is power hungry and destroying races, not the average people. Lots of unbelievable and incredible things happen that you just have to read for yourself. Great read! I received an advanced reader copy free and have voluntarily chosen to leave an honest review.
Book 4 is not what I expected. I try to avoid spoilers so telling you about this book is hard. Brandon has a surprise for all of you that think you have it figured out & might be getting board with the same-all, same-all. The main character, Ozzy, is maturing - slowly, but that isn't what is coming. Brandon has skilfully given the readers a whole new set of mysteries to complicate things further & grabbing your attention. Now book 5 is a must-read!
Funded by a Martian criminal kingpin, Ozzy and his friends head to earth, intent on using ancient Martian artifacts to end the Dunrakee threat to humans once and for all, but for the intrepid treasure-hunter, things never go quite the way he intends, and this final adventure of the Mars Colony quadrology is no different. Action, tech and unexpected twists all abound in this well written and thoroughly entertaining final (or maybe not) installment in Ozzy's saga. Well worth your time.
I love the idea. I enjoy most of the characters. It just seems to be pure action. I would like a little less action and more on this incredible universe Mr. Ellis has created. (He has a great knack of creating new and interesting concepts. I fell in love with his Star Guild series, his best so far. Although his Atlantis is pretty good, too.) Too many guns shooting, ships crashing or exploding, etc. Still I want to see more of this universe, so I will keep reading.
A BE. Science Fiction Mystery Thriller about a run to Earth to determine where the ancient weapon. Reroute to Earth they engage in a,space craft dog fight with the good old boys winning for a change. They enter Earth's atmosphere in an attempt to locate the war winning weapon only to find that many were already for war. This is an excellent read for the genre.....DEHS
With the help of Jozi and Zeld, Ozzy plans to commit genocide on the Dunrakee on Earth, so Humans can move back home. Jozi and Ozzy learn that the Dunrakee are not an evil race, in this fast paced action adventure. You don't know what will happen one minute to the next. Looking forward to the next book.
The next stage of Ozzy's epic returns him to Earth, his race's planet of origin. It's a wonderful learning experience for him, despite many efforts to kill him off. The story continues. Lots of action and a happy ending which I won't describe. Well worth the read. More coming...
