Jason Burke was a man hiding from himself in a small cabin high in the American Rocky Mountains when his simple, quiet life was shattered one night by what he first assumed was an aviation mishap. But when he investigates the crash, what he finds will yank him out of his self-imposed exile and thrust him into a world he could have never imagined. He suddenly finds himself trapped on a damaged alien spacecraft and plunged into a universe of interstellar crime lords and government conspiracies, along the way meeting strange new friends… and enemies. As he struggles to find his way back home he is inexorably drawn deeper into a world where one misstep could mean his death. Or worse. He desperately wants to get back to Earth, but it may be the end for him...or is it just the beginning?

Good Old-Fashioned Sci-Fi -- For a Change
Omega Rising is FANTASTIC!
ADVENTUROUS, HUMOROUS and THRILLING. But I would prefer not to have to sum up this amazing book in three words.
I would compare it to Farscape (not a book, sorry) but I liked Omega Rising even better. I definitely want to follow these books, if the adventure continues. I was completely sucked in by the journey the main character takes. He's relatable and experiences everything in a way that makes it that much more real and incredible to the reader. He goes from being a jaded hermit, to being a natural leader and hero to oppressed peoples of the universe.
Paul did an amazing job on this book. I love his character voices and his smooth voice. He has a way with flexion and living the story as he tells it. Very enjoyable. I won't hesitate to listen to more of his works.
Yes, once I got through the first few chapters, I had a hard time stopping.
I hope Joshua Dalzelle has written more of these books and that Paul Heitsch has narrated them as well.
