The government lied.
A UFO did, in fact, crash land in the New Mexico desert in the summer of 1947. Quickly intercepted by the US military, the unidentified flying object and its occupants were whisked away to secret installations.
In 1985, after almost 40 years of research, a successful splice of alien and human DNA is achieved.
Raised as a lab experiment that the military hoped to be a "super-soldier," Omega, trained in combat, educated strenuously, becomes the main component in General "Anvil" Hendricks elite military unit assigned to Phantom Base in Adaven, New Mexico. General Hendricks, a three-star general, believes the Omega Project will be the key to his elusive fourth star.
After a perilous first mission, the program is suspended, the plug pulled...
...if it were only that easy
After all, who said heroes had to be human?
Escape, Book 1 of Omega: Earth's Hero, by Keith Latch, a novella serial based on the 1950s pulp novels and Saturday afternoon matinees at the cinema of science fiction adventure, is the first in a series of science fiction-superhero adventure.
This book started out slowly, but it was necessary to establish the 'origin' story for the rest of the series.
The narrator did a great job, giving each character their own sound and feel.
Definitely worth checking out if you're into government conspiracies, aliens, Roswell, etc. I'm not particularly into any of those things and I still enjoyed this quite a bit. By the end of the book, I was looking into getting the next one in the series!

Escape: Omega Book 1 By Keith Latch was a nice short little surprise! It feels like the 3 hrs and 27 mins was almost "taken" away from a bigger book! So it ends a bit "weird" to be honest, and i cant say i think book 2 when that comes will just start where this end! This is my first Keith Latch book, and i will say it was a nice first hallo! This was ON THE MARK 4 out of 5 book, so i feel not bad about giving it that! It was no 4, something, and i like a reviewer can say i really like that! It is a "easy sci fi" with i can see more coming!
Now you will hear something i never thought i would say: Bob Kern makes to much voices! There you have it! He tries to hard! Yeah, there you have it! Bob Kern is trying to hard. When that is said, i will say i cant say something wrong more then that! So i do recommend this in a high regard!
