Publisher's Summary

Marine First Lieutenant Jacob Brown is bored.

For months he's been sitting around on an alien planet, waiting for command to recall his scout team so they could rest and be re-outfitted. The team went through hell during their previous mission, losing both their commanding officer and their ship. For now, Jacob was acting CO of Scout Team Obsidian and their ship was a broken down old surplus combat shuttle they'd stolen from narco-smugglers on a planet called Niceen-3.

When command finally does reach out, however, it isn't to order Obsidian home for some much needed r&r. Instead, they are being reactivated and sent out into the contested space of the recently conquered Eshquarian Empire to track down a single Terran cruiser called the Eagle's Talon.

The Talon's captain has gone rogue and is operating within a fleet of ships bent on open rebellion against the quadrant's only remaining superpower. If that ship is discovered within the rebel fleet, Earth will bear the brunt of the ConFed's reprisal. Jacob's team is in a race against time to locate the missing ship and her rogue captain so that a Navy strike force can swoop in and reclaim her...or destroy her.

Nice one!

This isn't as great as Omega Force but is building up to become something new and fun. I like it hope to see son and dad working together in the next book.

Great Spin-off

I write very few reviews... but here it goes. I was unsure at first but the story caught up and passed my expectations! Truly looking forward to the next in the series.

Ani I do not have enough space to write about Paul Heitch. Fantastic work! I follow narrators more than anything else. A good narrator makes a great book! Thanks Paul for making another great book!!

I love Omega Force which if you haven’t read/listen to yet then I would highly recommend you do, it will give you more incite into Jacob Brown’s character and the universe he’s in. Can’t wait for the next book or the next Omega force as well! Jason is gonna be pissed lol please keep the coming! And thank you for all the great stories!

another great book by Josh.

The book is really outstanding. I love the storyline and the characters. The ending with Obsidian borrowing the Phoenix is so funny. I think Josh is probably the best author of this type of syfy and military books i have ever read. Please keep writing about Omega force and Scout fleet.

Better and better..

Good story about Jacob Brown and his team sent to look for a ship and it shipload of traitors but they ran into one problem after another, the worse being Elton Hollick who tortured and killed one of Jacob's team, just for the fun of it.
I think they were taken captive 3 times and managed to get themselves out of the mess. When it ended they stole Jacob's dad's ship to go after Margaret Jensen.

This was NOT a CLIFFHANGER. All it did was leave it open for the next book. Which has nothing to go with this story.

No romance and the F-bomb was used 33 times.

As for the narration: Paul Heitsch does a fantastic job with the voices and the great emotions when he reads.

Another good book in the series

An interesting book in the tradition of Paul Anderson's Ensign Flandry. The overall story was good. The performance was well done by the narrator.

Way to frequent strong language.

Overall I have really enjoyed all of Joshua Dalzelle's work. I could not finish this book because of the very frequent drop of the F bomb. If he wrote these books without such language I imagine they would become even more popular.

Every Dads Worry

Why has he ended up being so much like me without being anywhere near me for most of his life...Dammit!!

A really terrific listen. So enjoying being dragged along with Team Obsidian and watching Jacob grow in his character.... but that damned ending!!

I now cannot wait to here the "Funny Story"....
