Publisher's Summary

Omega Force is back!

After the daring rescue of a political dissident, Omega Force is contracted to investigate a rash of violent attacks on civilian shipping lanes within a group of star systems known as the Concordian Cluster. It seems a simple enough job with a huge payday at the end, and it's exactly what the ragtag group of mercenaries needs in order to keep their ship flying and to stay one step ahead of those hunting them.

However, the further they delve into the seedy underworld of the Cluster, the more they realize they may be in over their heads. With innocent lives hanging in the balance, Captain Burke and his crew begin a desperate race to uncover who is responsible for these attacks, and why, before their ultimate goal can be realized.

Soldiers of Fortune is the follow up to the popular novel Omega Rising and the second book in the Omega Force series. It continues the adventures of Jason Burke, a lone human in space who has linked up with five other aliens to try their luck as hired guns. Their mandate: to help those who don't have the means to help themselves and never accept a job that would compromise the honor code they live by.

    "Look at who's writing is getting older and better!!"

    When I listened to Omega Rising last October I loved the book! It was a good concept with lotsa action and fully rounded characters and you could tell this was going to be a great series! One year later when Audible finally presented the next 6 in the series, we were proved right! Soldiers of Fortune seamlessly continues where Rising stopped And there's a little more sass and confidence in the characters each of which are a treasure in themselves. And the action, the mystery, the skull-
    duggery, the humor, keep you interested from chapter one. Warning: I do not recommend this book to those listeners who are compelled to make the sandwich run, check their voice mail, use the facilities during the book. You'll miss something good.... Joshua and Paul keep doing what you're doing! You're going to join the Dynamic Duos of Sci Fi!

    Story
    "Crushed it"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Crusher and Lucky. We get to know them both a little more.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Heitsch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Paul always brings me into the world. Great job Paul.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did.


    Any additional comments?

    This story was a great second installment to the series. Just as engaging as the first. I'm off to the next. I think this series so far is freakin' awesome. Check it out.

    Story
    "Moves along lacking any motivating purpose"

    The writing is okay but the story lacks a sense of real purpose. The crew sees itself as a space-age Magnificent 6, without much backstory to illicit any interest toward any of them. A lone bunch of guys whose entire reason for living is to help save those who are being stepped on by others as they hop around the galaxy getting jobs from altruistic rich benefactors. Even the primary protagonist's history, of what little exists, is that he was a non-fighting ex-spec-ops guy who pines from the loss of an estranged blond girlfriend standing next to a Camaro.

    The narrator has a decent dynamic range in articulating the different alien and female voices but his recital comes off rather mild and matter-of-factly.

    I'll not be continuing this series.

    Story
    "Decent book, stupid name"

    These are decent books. Not great literature but as entertaining as a show on Syfy channel. My only real complaint is that he kind of ruins the otherwise decent storytelling by calling them "omega force." It's a stupid name and it doesn't fit organically in the story. An editor would've told him that if he had one. But, if you can avoid mocking the stupid name, these are decent sci fi audiobooks.

    Story
    "From the ashes, the Phenix rises again."
    If you could sum up Soldiers of Fortune in three words, what would they be?

    This is on the grand scale of a Golden age Space Opera. A mismatched group of mercinaries, Capt Burke an American all but abducted into space. A Galvetic Warrior ( a warrior born and bred from a society of warrior)) , A Battle Synth ( a sentient mechanical man designed for war) a Medical Doc ( Geneticist by trade) a four armed Veran ( Computer Hacker) and twingo ( blue skined, charmer of engines and all things mechanical) while dissimilar they've all found a place, a family amd a cuase. To give hope to those who have lost it in the face of much stronger adversarie..


    What did you like best about this story?

    How seemlessly these dissimilar characters meld into a unique fighting force. Strong characters well drawn amd engaging.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think it would have to be when a young girl draws attent to herself by running through a high society party to greet her shy fearsome friend Lucky the Battle Synth. A constructed synthetic being which almost everyone else is frightened of.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are several fun bits throught out but overall it's simply a very enjoyable fun read.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book in the series. While it could easily be listened to out of sequence. It's probbetter read in order simply to enjoy the growth of the characters. It's simple great fun.

    "Fun romp through space"

    With Omega force there's not much doubt what will happen, with whom or where. While it lacks the punch of the debut novel, the story is a fun romp through space with endearing characters and a happy ending.

    "A plausible adventure story - action & good yarn"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Not wishing to constantly compare, this story and perhaps the series reminds one of the "Firefly" TV series....fiercely independent contractors wishing to help others while earning enough money and adventure to keep flying. All-in-all a good story line that stays dramatic and light hearted.....a good listen!
