Omega is the epitome of what a good action/adventure novel should be. This is the Chess Team novel all the others have been leading to. It is done right! I've been reading a lot of Jeremy Robinson's books lately, especially all the Chess Teams. Once I started with Prime, I had to read them all. Omega was worth the wait! An Epic end to an Epic storyline. I've loved every one of the previous novels, yes, some more than others, but they are altogether one big, fantastic story-like watching a TV series on Netflix from start to finish, and this is the "series finale" that most shows never get. But it's not even the end!!!!! There's more books coming! This is good. So is Omega. Read at least the previous 6 novels first, but if you want the full story, read em all with the novellas in the middle.
It goes: 1. Prime 2. Pulse 3. Instinct 4. Threshold 5. Call Sign novellas :5a King book 1, 5b Queen, 5c Rook, 5d Bishop, 5e Knight, 5f King book 2: Underworld, 5g Deep Blue, 5h King book 3: Blackout (King books available as Brainstorm trilogy)
6. Ragnarok 7. Omega
That's a lot, I know. I was intimidated too. But so is watching 7 seasons of a TV. Same thing almost. And after Omega, which you should DEFINITELY BUY when you are caught up, you will be left wanting more just like me. And that's not really a bad thing!

brilliant conclusion to a storyline that's been going now since the first chess team novel. all the different elements from previous novels come together, with some startling revelations, especially for king. the saga of Richard ridley and also of alexander are concluded, and its a happy ending for the latter. be interesting to see where the chess team go from here, and how the author tops this story arc.
I have a question regarding the ending. when alexander steps through the portal and it explodes, would that not create some kind of paradox when his younger self finds his lab destroyed?
