    Story
    "The first book is ok. The other two are weak."

    The first book had a couple of plot twists that made the book. Unfortunately the lack of character development made for a long series. The main character was supposed to be this awesome guy who just can't catch a break. Yet everything goes easy for him and his crew and when it does not a piece of tech that he did not know about magically shows up to help him take over control of the "bad guys" brains and body's.

    Throght the story the protagonist has it out for him yet is scarred of him. The reasons are a joke and make no sense because they continue put him in the exact situation they do not want. Even to the point of bringing him out of retirement from the army. He of course keeps breaking up all there evil plans yet they keep taking steps so he will be against them. It reminds me of Austin Powers when the son says "let's just shoot him, I have a gun we can do it together ". Of course they have to make an elaborate trap that puts him in the best possible position.

    This does not even get into all the other characters. Good or bad there was no development. I had to rewind a few times just to even remember who died and I couldn't care less who got killed and who did not. The closest it came was for one character to mention that he used to be a fun practical joker before. Wow, super endearing.

    Plot was weak, characters were no more than names on a page. Quite a let down.

    "A great sci-fi action story!"

    After listening to Zero Point, a prequel to the Evan Gabriel Trilogy I knew that I would listen to the entire series. The Omnibus is a great way to get all three books in one package! Ray Chase is a great narrator and does an excellent job with this series. very entertaining!

    "Spaghetti Western meets solid sci-fi"

    The story is cliché and cheesy and all of those things that you love about a spaghetti western set in space. Yes the good guys win, yes the bad guys are just greedy and evil and have no real justification behind their motives, and yes the good guys come up with some unbelievable luck.

    But it is entertaining and that's what these kind of stories are all about.

    There are also some very solid sci-fi aspects of the series that I enjoyed.

    Story
    "good universe, bad character execution."

    I bought the three pack after I listened to zero point and I liked the universe. The first book was pretty good, but after that his story starts to unravel. Why people start to do the things they are doing starts to make less since for anything other then to drive the story on. I would have stopped after the second book if I had not already bought all three. the main character starts off as a good leader, but seems to make more mistakes as the books go on. missing things that would tip him off to danger or noticing them and for some reason not planning anything out to help him and keeping it to himself and getting his whole team in trouble.

    "Terrible narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A fairly good book. I just couldn't get past the narration. Every sentence sounded regretful.

    "Good ideas, mediocre writing"

    These books have lots of great ideas and story arcs, but the writing was clumsy enough to draw attention away from what was going on. Toward the end I kept waiting for it to be done just for the closure.

    "well worth a listen"

    The plot works well and the characters are likeable. However, I think the entire trilogy could very easily have fit into one book.
