But it just so happens that our heroine, Blair, is a Celtic High Priestess and Wendy is an Indigo Child, who possesses fantastic powers. Together with the help of an ancient order of Druids, The Daughters of Awen, Blair must decode the Voynich manuscript. But the answer found in the lost diary of Carl Jung unlocks a dramatic childhood secret and reveals Blair's strange bond with the child. The Indigo Children, Wendy and the Lost Boys, are being held prisoner at Eden School, where they are examined as unique specimens, the fountainhead of a new master race. In a daring commando raid on the British Museum, the Voynich manuscript and the mysterious Crystal Skulls are stolen.
And the plot does roll along at a good clip. But the book has some fairly serious drawbacks, in my opinion. For one, Jason has no real history or depth to his character. Nor does anyone else. Second, the book suffers from allowing its main character too many successes too quickly.

For example, Jason finds himself in space, with This was fun. For example, Jason finds himself in space, with no knowledge of anything, and within a ridiculously short amount of time he's giving technical advice on how to save the ship to a trained pilot. He easily, one might say accidentally, becomes captain of a ship with an exceedingly skilled and loyal crew. He never stresses or gets flustered, even when faced with the impossible. There is literally no challenge that he doesn't overcome almost effortlessly.
Third, the book needs a bit of editing. It's readable, but if you pay attention to that kind of thing, you notice. Lastly, since it's something I've decided to start pointing out when I see it, in an attempt to highlight how disturbingly common it is, even today, there are no female characters. Seriously, none, not even a side character or service provider.
So, in the end, as a just-for-the-fun-of-it, not-gonna-delve-too-deeply-into-it kind of read it is fun. Not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but worth reading. Jan 18, Larry B Gray rated it really liked it. Omega Rising by Joshua Dalzelle is a good science fiction adventure which was fun to read. I found the book hard to put down once I started reading. The author developed a good storyline which was interesting and fast paced.
It did lack a lot of depth but this made for an easy read and follow. My big problem with the book was the grammatical errors throughout the book. I found them to be distracting. I liked the characters created by Joshua Dalzelle. I found them very believable and easy to follow Omega Rising by Joshua Dalzelle is a good science fiction adventure which was fun to read.

I enjoyed Omega Rising and recommend this book to all readers. Sep 02, Lee rated it liked it Shelves: I went in knowing that this could be a bit of a light opera and that is what i got. I have been reading a lot of Dalzelle recently and think he is one of the best space battle writers out there. This on the other hand is his pulp fiction work.

It is very light, minimal character building, even though there is only one human in the story and utterly predictable. Does that make it a boring read?
No, it is exactly what it is, space opera. A easy scifi read and hopefully laying the foundation for gr I went in knowing that this could be a bit of a light opera and that is what i got.
Omega Rising (Omega Force, #1) by Joshua Dalzelle
A easy scifi read and hopefully laying the foundation for growth in the characters and world building. If you are looking for something that will not tax your brain, is easy to pick up where you left off, simple plots about 'being galactic hereos' and saving the unfortunate, then this is just fine. I will be carrying on with the series, as a filler when I want something light, like lunch time reading. This was such an entertaining and witty sci-fi read. Initially I wasn't sure if I'd read it or not because so many times a book like this can bog you down with the sci-finess of it, but not this.
It's got just the right amount of sci-fi but with the added bonus of being quite witty and funny! There isn't much else I can add, that isn't in the summary, that won't spoil things so I'll get down to my thoughts. I didn't know what to think of Jason at the start, because he seemed so sullen This was such an entertaining and witty sci-fi read. I didn't know what to think of Jason at the start, because he seemed so sullen, but I grew to really like his character. I loved the enthusiasm and awe he showed with every new discovery and with seeing the planets!! He was like a child and it made it more believable, because I know, I for one, would be in awe of seeing anything in outer space.
I also loved Deets, even though he is kind of one of the bad guys. He was just so literal and weird that it was hard not to like him in some way.

The plot is slow to start because Jason takes time to get to know the ship and Deets, but once it gets going, it really gets going and is pure sci-fi at it's best. The authors description of everything was so vivid that I had no problem picturing the places or aliens. In all this was a fun and entertaining read. It was a little predictable at times but still highly entertaining.
The characters and plot were well written and developed, we have mobster aliens too but the author gave enough levity to the story that it wasn't too heavy, and he has created a universe that I fell in love with, so roll all them into one book and you have a winner, for me anyway!! I can't wait to jump into the next one to see what happens. Paul Heitsch was absolutely perfect for this story. His range of vocals was impressive and I had no problem distinguishing each character.
He had the right tone at the right time as well which made the whole listen so enjoyable. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Jul 08, Todd Gutschow rated it liked it. Good story but more for teens than adults This is a simple and fun read. There's nothing new here I wish it were a bit more complex than it is. May 26, RJ Beem rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. So much so that I finished it in one day! It was a fun space adventure that reminded me of the show Farscape.
Jul 09, Jim rated it it was amazing. I have found a new series that I think is going to be great. Jason Burke should have been me or I should have been Jason Burke or how ever you want to put it. Two, there are eight, 8 books in the series already written. Book one is the beginning of Omega Force. Jason Burke is a former Air Force enlisted guy who has had enough of war and killing. He manages to wake up and get to his cabin door just as the craft appears to have hit the ground just beyond a ridge line a few clicks from his cabin.
So he grabs a small flashlight and his civilian AR and heads out. It appears to have not really crashed although it is smoking and seems to have an electrical fire smell to the whole area. Jason slowly climbs down the slope to get a better look and see if any one survived the landing.
Then, the backend of the craft suddenly drops a ramp and more smoke comes billowing out. Now Jason makes the dumbest mistake of his short life.

He enters the craft going through the smoke which is starting to subside. Jason continues on into the craft entering at what appears to be a cargo area. He sees a hatch with a big red button next to it, so he walks up and pushes the button. Jason eventually goes through both hatches which he believes might have been airlock doors and then he come to a ladder or stairs going up. Once up on the next deck he walks forward through an open door way into a large control room. He notices someone or something sitting at a console and they notice him at about the same time. Next thing he feels is an electric shock which causes him to fire his AR through on of the front screens and also knocks him off his feet.
From this point on, Jason Burke is in for an adventure of a life time. He has boarded an alien spacecraft that had set down to make emergency repairs and vent all the electrical smoke from the craft. Yet, Jason is on-board and just now coming to in the ship's medical bay. Turns out, Deetz is just the first of many strange, but not so strange, beings he will encounter over the next few years.
This series is exactly why I like military science fiction. And the writing by Mr. This first book provides the background for how the Omega Force came to be and details a lot of information about each member of Omega Force. There are just the right numbers so as to remember each character and their background.

May 09, Cloakndagger rated it did not like it. Instead it's another James Rollins one with a K for a middle initial. I finished this book months ago and I had this funny feeling even back then that there was something odd about this particular "James Rollins" book. Then when I went to amazon. Well it isn't him and I am glad.
I thought, after reading The Voynich Project, that my favorite author has changed his writing style, characters and quality.
