After the events of ‘Redemption’ the crew has pulled back together, and Omega Force is back to ‘help’ the Galaxy.
This time though, they will be running from their home base on S’Tora.
There is a bit of fun start to this book, that I will not spoil, but needless to say, it is very well done, and Dalzelle obviously had a lot of fun writing it. It shows just how clever he is with his character skills, his humour and his descriptions of fight scenes.
The main core of this story revolves around the Human Sector. Without giving too many spoilers away, Jason learns that he is the target of a kill squad – From Earth! – and this sets some interesting things in motion.
He discovers that Earth has made the move to Space, have an Ally with Ulterior motives, they are in Danger, and they have no clue of how bad it is. Of course everyone on Earth still despises him for not handing over the Tech that he has and launching them decades or centuries into the future. There are multiple players, some trying to kill him, some trying to help him, some trying to take over the Earth, some wanting the crashed Traveller craft left on Earth by the failed Deetz invasion.
This is a really fascinating book – it looks very deeply into Jason Burke and his inner struggle over his lost humanity, his guilt over leaving Earth, as well as his regrets over past decisions from missions. It also looks at a lot of different aspects of Humanity, from the truly ugly side of selfish greed and power and any cost, to heroism and selfless acts committed purely for the good of others. Dalzelle does a magnificent job of writing these different aspects and concepts, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in both the Omega Force Universe but the large range of Characters in this particular episode.
This is one of the best books in the Omega Force series as it not only as all the usual elements, action, humour, thrills, but it really gives us a good insight into Jason Burke, as well as some of the other characters, such as Lucky and the relationship between the two of them.
The only bad thing about this book is that I have run out of Dalzelle books to read, and now have to wait for the next release…
