The Omega force books aren't the utmost in literary works of art, however they are entertaining.
I tend to read two types of books. 1. the thought provoking indepth works, that you can read many times and find different nuances each time and 2. Entertaining romps that fill a space, maybe make you laugh and keep you occupied for a time.
This definitely falls into the second category but is none the worse for it. I read this book in a few days and thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are developed and the storyline engrossing enough to keep you coming back for more.
I shudder to think about what I am about to write next, but I hope in the coming books that the lead character finally makes some progress with his love interest (dear god I never thought I would write that!)

In the fifth novel of the Omega Force series we learn more about Crusher the Galvetic warrior who unlike many of his race travels the galaxy. Contacted by members of his people his well kept secret is revealed and well Omega Force can never resist the opportunity to do good even if it's on a world populated by millions of the best fighters in the galaxy and mildly xenophobic to boot but Crusher is family and the adventure begins. Of course as Jason knows plans rarely work out as expected and pretty much everything goes through the ringer and the bonds and trust between the crew of the Phoenix are strained to the extreme.
Return of the Archon is a great addition to the series and the development of Crusher's background and his homeworld adds richly to the whole, there is plenty of action, intrigue and mystery via multiple layers of narrative that will keep you turning the page. The only drawback I guess is that I am now waiting for the sixth book in the series.

Punchy, pacey, funny, full of good characters that mesh well and win you over.
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.

Joshua Dalzelle has written another action packed blinder! Fast paced, well writtien, some ongoing loose ends still scattered throughout the chapters, laying down a larger story arc for future installments.
In this fifth installment we find out a lot more about Crusher, who he was/is when we visit his home star system. A nice political intrigue & more so than any previous books, Jason's crew suffer some pretty horendous injuries & land in very servere jeopardy.
Can't wait for the next book

Woof woof! Yes, tis me again with another mouthful or white leather sofa pausing to let you know this is terrific! I won't talk about the story too much as Roger hasn't read it yet and he gets morose when I do. So, give this a read and remember your donations to my vet fees, the mistress is going to give me hell over the new sofa,# what's left of it. Tip top!

Got a bit fed up with the third book in the series (daft girlfriend from Earth turning up) but these last two books have been much improved, this intergalactic 'A' Team are back to their old tricks....great stuff and we also have the conspiracy theory ticking over nicely in the back ground, bring it on!

if I suddenly realise it's 0200hrs and I'm still reading a book it can't be bad and means it held my attention, I stumbled over this series whilst looking for something different to read and I'm glad I did it's a bit like the A team in space for those that remember the TV series

Still keep the surprises coming. Would have liked the first part of the book to be about the race. As it would have been more excitement for the reader. But as you always do you made it hard to put down once you start reading. Of to download next book

I have enjoyed the whole series looking forward to to the release of book 7 Joshua Dalzelle has an enjoyable relaxed style of writing, A nice touch of humour, good characters well written fast moving story lines. A great find as i only came across him in a syfy compendium.

All this series keeps ones head down reading and makes it difficult to find a place where the book can be put down in order to work, eat or go to sleep. Not since the sixties with Alistair Mclean have I found such compelling reads.
