Publisher's Summary

To win the war one man must break the rules of war. Because in the fight against the ruthless Sa’Nerran Empire there is only victory or death.

The Sa’Nerra were close to defeat, then everything changed. Armed with a unique neural weapon, the merciless alien warriors turned fleet crew against their own. Entire warships went rogue. Suspicion and fear ran riot.

Victory now required new tactics and a new kind of ship and crew.

Lucas Sterling is an Omega captain. He is the commander of the fleet Marauder Invictus - an elite, black-ops warship that operates outside the rules of combat. Together with his crew of Omega officers - each chosen in a depraved and monstrous trial of grit and determination - Sterling will stop at nothing to beat the brutal Sa’Nerra. Even if that means killing fleet crew that have been “turned”. Even if that means killing the people he loves.

They say space is cold, but the heart of an Omega captain is colder still…
 

This special edition omnibus contains the first three books in the epic Omega Taskforce military sci-fi series. If you like the sound of Battlestar Galactica crossed with Star Trek's Section 31, you'll love it. Enjoy ruthless alien warriors, running gun battles, devastating space combat, mystery, high-stakes action and epic twists.

Books included in the set:

  • Book 1: The Emissary
  • Book 2: Void Recon

This book series started Rough

This book series started rough, like really rough. I didn't think I was going to be able to listen to it, Since I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review, I decided to force myself just listen to it for a bit and see. The main issue I found was the voice in the beginning, I couldn't figure it out. After listening to all 21+hours I can tell you I loved it and can't wait to listen to others in this series.

The main characters' trials and tribulations add a huge depth to the story and to see the growth over time has been great, the demons in the leads head seems to have been changing and I need to read more to know what happens. I am a fan for sure, give it a shot you never know in 5 min but after 15 I was hooked

Decent Space Opera

Three books for one credit is always a good deal as long as the story is decent. This one starts out a bit hard to get into but once it gets going you don’t want to put it down. The narration is hard to listen to at first but it grows on you and is not near as bad by the end. I actually enjoyed the story and I am now looking forward to the next box set in this series.

Good space war

Good space war with concerns about tech implants. The narration was a little rough, nasally and lispy but not with the character voices only the narrative. It wasn't too distracting after a bit.

GJ Ogden did a great job with this story.

GJ Ogden did a great job with this story. The character and plot development were excellent. Audio Version: This is the first time I have listened to Steve Barnes. After I got used to him and his voices I really enjoyed what he was doing.

Military Science Fiction Space Opera

The flawed characters of this military science fiction space opera are well-developed and engaging; they drew me into the story. The entertaining plot is fast-paced with lots of action and adventure including hand-to-hand combat as well as space battles. There were plenty of twists and turns, political intrigue, danger, mystery, manipulation, suspense and humor. I look forward to reading and/or listening to the rest of the series. This is the first time that I have listened to narrator Steve Barnes. It took me a chapter or two to become accustomed to his somewhat breathy whisper for the exposition; the delivery of the voices of the different characters was much more enjoyable and entertaining. I was provided a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Meh

Story line is good but sadly, narration ruins it. Was deleted after 10min of listening

On the fence

This one although well written didn't seem to grab my attention the way I expected despite interesting characters, not sure if this was due to the narration which although good didn't match the voices I thought went with the story, or just because life meant that this took a lot longer that my usual speed.
The 3 audios helped a lot in regards to carrying on with the story where perhaps I might have given up after the first one, the usual space war story follows the lines you would expect although the change of allegiances kept a nice change of pace.
The political situation is kept to a nice side note but still drives a lot of the background keeping a realistic scenario ongoing and this was something I enjoyed as the hidden depths of the series was always something in the background.
Overall I enjoyed this depsite the increased time to properly get into it, still on the fence as to grab the next 3 or perhaps see what it's like in book form before jumping back in again.
i requested this audio and have decided to leave my thoughts for everyone.

Great story, but :

Author Gareth J. Ogden created a beautiful Universe only that us science-fiction readers pay attention to every word and sounds, Mistakes like Captain Lucas Sterling not understanding how he didn’t notice that his Lieutenant is the daughter of a really famous Captain even after she tells him that she never got alone with her father hence she used her mother’s maidan name, also once getting pushed into the back of the seat when there are no seats on the ship deck ( which also makes no sense )and the unlimited commandos on such a small ship like they got a clone factory down at the bay area.
Also i would love to know what so special about the Invictus ( a small ship without any surprises like special weapons or being able to go invisible ) Nothing !
Now the part of the review which I’m having problems finding the words but I’ll try:
Great story which missing emotions or something that I don’t have the right words to explain, something which i can’t understand but for sure something is not there.

Oded Ostfeld.
