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!

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.
love it can't wait for next one make you feel like you are there part of the crew
