Publisher's Summary

Each member of Omega Force carries his own baggage. Most of them are running from their pasts or simply trying to forget them. One member of the small mercenary crew is not who he claims to be, however. When his former life collides with his current one, the team is drawn into a conflict that could have profound consequences for the future of an entire species. Captain Jason Burke struggles to find answers as the tight cohesion of his crew seems to dissolve. No matter the outcome of the mission, can Jason keep Omega Force together once the dust settles?

enjoyed! can't wait to read the next one!

I just love this series. A nice bonus is being a blessing to listen to it with my middle schoolers and teenagers. we laugh out loud at parts and cheer for the crew during others.

Epi-Tome! LOL @ Paul Heitsch!!! LAMO!!!

What made the experience of listening to Return of the Archon the most enjoyable?

Paul has never seen the word Epitome spelled out on the screen before? What a Du-moss...

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that Paul has never seen the word "Epitome"

Which character – as performed by Paul Heitsch – was your favorite?

The part where he pronounced Epitome as "Epi-Tome..." What a dumbass?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the pronounced the word incorrectly for the 2nd or 3rd time?

Any additional comments?

Doesn't anyone proof read/listen to these?

Very good series

Very atypical run of the mill, Mil Sci Fiction series, yet, it delivers, flushed out easy to root for characters, the good guys are no angels, problem lies with the villains (they are run of the mill also) yet overall, another solid installment, I like this series, at times predictable, yet enjoyable, narration is very good

Epic SyFy Opera

I highly recommend listening to this book. It is a great and captivating story. Totally worth the investment.

Finally the author writes a captivating story worth listening to - till the end. For the 1st time in this series I could not wait to hear the ending.

It was cool that Crusher met 3 of his own kind in a 3rd world planet. This mystery heightens and grows in the story.

"Sensors greened up" I've never heard that before and it is a very cool statement.

Only an armature writer would say "raindrops begin to splatter against the steeply raked canopy" to signify that a storm in the story was about to begin. His foreshadowing is so obvious that it is childish. it is way too obvious.

"he landed in a heap" is again amateurish writing and he says this 5+ times in every book.

author also says "with a patience or confidence he did not feel". he says this in every book. this gets old.

interesting details about an anti matter reactor / engines is fun.

narrator says "ep-a-tome" when the word is epitome. the narrator is an idiot.

narrator says "you've been thunderstruck" quoting AC/DC's song. this is the worst singing of a song that I've ever heard. proving this narrator is horrible.

Incredibly awesome and detailed storytelling of his ship entering atmosphere. "skipped off the upper atmosphere, shock waves ... coronal discharges of gases ..." awesome part of the story. Great writing.

Very good.

I'm writing this after reading and listening more than half my way through the series as it is currently written. This should speak to my enjoyment of the series. Paul Heitsch continues to do an excellent job narrating and bring the characters to life. I cannot speak enough to the continued quality of his performance. This is a much more focused story, taking place in one system and greatly fleshing out one of the main characters. It is quite enjoyable and the series takes on a somewhat less serious and more fun tone with more twists thrown in than normal.

Entertaining

As with the previous entrants to this series, the Last Archon was very entertaining and was driven by a cast of likable characters. There was enough action to keep me entertained throughout the book. I look forward to the next story, which I just purchased.

Another great one!!!!

the Political intrigue in this story line is now leading up to something very big in the up coming books!!!
I was hoping that the crew would have picked up at least one new crew member but that did not happen....
