Publisher's Summary

Escape from Oz

Sirio Falken has been a fighter his whole life. But when the government bans professional fighting, his life spirals out of control. Convicted of murder, he's sentenced to life in prison. But all of the felons he's ever known have disappeared from Earth, never to return. He's about to find out firsthand what happened to them. He'll have to stay alive among Earth’s most ruthless felons if he wants to survive and become the first man to escape from Oz. 

Escape from Olympus

After his escape from the prison colony Oz, Sirio Falken has found a new life as a safari guide on the planet Olympus. There, he helps tourists navigate the planet's exotic ecosystem, which is dominated by a single apex predator: a long-lived and sightless avian species called dragons. With exceptional hearing, the dragons are feared for hunting down anything that moves, including Falken and his guests, if they’re not careful. But unknown to Falken, criminal elements have plans to use him to plunder the planet's resources, whether he's willing to help them or not. He'll have to keep the lethal dragons at bay long enough to unravel a growing conspiracy and escape from Olympus.

Return to Oz

Falken survived the ordeal on Olympus, only to be stunned with a shocking revelation: his good friend Weaver is still incarcerated on Oz. The only way to get Weaver out is to volunteer to go back inside the prison himself. But the clock is ticking - Falken will only have a few days to find his friend and help him escape. While he’s back on Oz, he’ll have to follow the rules to the letter. One step out of line, and they’ll both be stuck in jail forever.

Meh

It wasn't awful, just not outstanding. characters were pretty flat. Inconsistent pronunciation of the *Main* character's last name was annoying (it is also the title of the series, so I have to wonder if it was intentional)- if part of dialogue, the first syllable was accented, and if part of narration, the second. not even a silly reason like "how the main character pronounced it was different."

The writing wasn't bad, but the science was really poor on some really basic stuff, like the sheer size of things and the scale of space. An asteroid "just happened to show up in the path of a FTL ship" not being noted as tremendously unlikely and cause for immediate emergency. And then there is being able to see ships in low orbit around earth from high orbit... to mis-Quote HHGTTG (and Douglas Adams) on the size of space- "you just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is"... I appreciate not inventing some stupid Star-Trek like magic answer for the future technology and science, but don't break the simple things like geometry, as it hurts the willing suspension of disbelief.

Overall- OK, but I wouldn't read again or reccomend, as there are too many other, better books out there.
