After the daring rescue of a political dissident, Omega Force is contracted to investigate a rash of violent attacks on civilian shipping lanes within a group of star systems known as the Concordian Cluster. It seems a simple enough job with a huge payday at the end, and it's exactly what the ragtag group of mercenaries needs in order to keep their ship flying and to stay one step ahead of those hunting them.
However, the further they delve into the seedy underworld of the Cluster, the more they realize they may be in over their heads. With innocent lives hanging in the balance, Captain Burke and his crew begin a desperate race to uncover who is responsible for these attacks, and why, before their ultimate goal can be realized.
Soldiers of Fortune is the follow up to the popular novel Omega Rising and the second book in the Omega Force series. It continues the adventures of Jason Burke, a lone human in space who has linked up with five other aliens to try their luck as hired guns. Their mandate: to help those who don't have the means to help themselves and never accept a job that would compromise the honor code they live by.

Look at who's writing is getting older and better!!
When I listened to Omega Rising last October I loved the book! It was a good concept with lotsa action and fully rounded characters and you could tell this was going to be a great series! One year later when Audible finally presented the next 6 in the series, we were proved right! Soldiers of Fortune seamlessly continues where Rising stopped And there's a little more sass and confidence in the characters each of which are a treasure in themselves. And the action, the mystery, the skull-
duggery, the humor, keep you interested from chapter one. Warning: I do not recommend this book to those listeners who are compelled to make the sandwich run, check their voice mail, use the facilities during the book. You'll miss something good.... Joshua and Paul keep doing what you're doing! You're going to join the Dynamic Duos of Sci Fi!

Moves along lacking any motivating purpose
The writing is okay but the story lacks a sense of real purpose. The crew sees itself as a space-age Magnificent 6, without much backstory to illicit any interest toward any of them. A lone bunch of guys whose entire reason for living is to help save those who are being stepped on by others as they hop around the galaxy getting jobs from altruistic rich benefactors. Even the primary protagonist's history, of what little exists, is that he was a non-fighting ex-spec-ops guy who pines from the loss of an estranged blond girlfriend standing next to a Camaro.
The narrator has a decent dynamic range in articulating the different alien and female voices but his recital comes off rather mild and matter-of-factly.
I'll not be continuing this series.

it's very sad to see what happened to me with the omega force series where no audio book is numbered for continuity and order of stories, the same thing here is listening to the expansion wars all three books just to realize that for the first time I should listen to black flet to better understand the story and to be continuity. you've lost a client who could have bought the black flet if I had not listened to the expansion wars first to know more than 50% of what's happening in black flet, it's a pity that such a good author is not in the mood to make a continuity in the titles and not miss a client.
