Thx for the stories.
There seemed to be more maturity in the story. With every character having to play a part.
I still like this good vs evil motif of the Omega Force stories. But now we get into who is actually good vs who is actually evil.
There are still a few points where the story seems a bit naieve. And Omega Force come out looking like the “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
The series is just a fun and easy going read. Nothing too griping, that would make me want to keep reading chapter after chapter without putting the book down. But still fun to read nonetheless.
A member of the crew has a connection to the bad guys scheme and I liked that it wasn't entirely dealt with. And will have consequences carrying over into the next book. Then there's the lingering mystery of the Phoenix origins beginning with the first book. And continued with Deetz cryptic comments about it in the last book.
The Omega Force, led by Jason Burke, finds that Captain Colleren has escaped her original captures and is no running loose on the planet Camderan-2. Of course, Jason and the Omega Force are going to rescue her, especially since she and Jason have something going or at least appear to. They also need to find out from her where exactly Crisstof is being held and try to rescue him if possible.
In the process of rescuing both of these individuals, the Omega Force finds themselves in the middle of a ConFed plot to expand their empire. They definitely don't want the Omega Force to find out what their plans are so the Omega Force now becomes an enemy of the very forces they were previously assisting via Crisstof. The also find them selves doing the impossible with barely logical plans of attack.
I like the humor that is part of each book. The Omega Force team has come together quite a bit since it was first formed. One member is going to come close to being thrown for withholding information that should have been know a long time ago. Still, the team does what needs to be done without using undo force or fanfare. They are what most people would label professionals at their trade.
I'm really glad I found this series and look forward to reading many more books. As this is only the fourth in an eight book series, I have a few more to go. That's just great. These are my kind of military science fiction books.

The Enemy Within treats us to another wild adventure with Jason and his crew on board the Phoenix searching for answers both on planet and amongst the stars and they are not only being hunted by the more shady elements of the galaxy but the intelligence agencies have begun to take notice of this strange gunship that appears too often in galactic trouble spots.
A great addition to the series and I've already purchased the fifth book:)
No point telling the spoiler, others have waffled on already on that front.
Nice easy read, saves the girl and their reputation etc (OOPS- a spoiler alert)
One major problem, the crew is from multiple alien races, yet no attempt is made to give us any form of background, abilities, what they look like or can physically accomplish or even why they are included in the crew. However we do know the hero is human, Jason.
Would be more fun if he wasn't and had to deal with human annoying traits.
If you're a fan of science fiction and adventure stories this series is of interest to you.
For the rest of you I say this, give this series a try and let us know what YOU think!
After all nothing I say can properly appreciate what's happened so far in this series so I recommend the omnibus of the first three books before reading this book that way you'll understand what I'm trying to say!
Some "plausible" science, too, that's not too detailed or complicated.
Massive environments loosely drawn allows you to fill in the gaps for yourself!
Story lines are subtly woven and expanded without being deliberately obtuse or trying to prove the author's cleverness and superiority - like you sometimes challenged with.
Easy to see a long running series in this hugely varied universe.
Great story telling
