Summary

For thousands of years, the ConFed has been the most powerful force in the quadrant. It is the umbrella under which hundreds of planets and trillions of beings live in relative peace...despite the corruption and waste, it's a system that most accept as preferable to the chaos that would ensue in its absence.

Rumors have swirled around about the demise of the ConFed for as long as Jason Burke had been in space, a lone human among countless alien species. He largely ignored them...until now. For the first time since any of the members of Omega Force can remember, someone may have figured out how to destroy the ConFed without directly engaging its powerful military.

As one crewmember's past seems connected to the current trouble, Jason must decide what side of the fight he's on...let the ConFed die and plunge the quadrant into chaos, or swallow his pride and try to help an institution he despises maintain its power for the greater good.

Sad

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.

Brilliant Narration, Excellent Background on Lucky

Dalzelle continues to create these impressive stories, even after 8 books, the 9th was just as good, if not better.
Something is trying to destabilise the Confed, or more importantly the Confed banking system.
Whilst Omega Force has no love for the Confed, they understand that the removal of this organisation will be disastrous, as potentially bring down the Confed and see billions or trillions of lives at risk, and dozens of worlds at risk with no support from the Confed fleet.
Jason sees no option but to try and work out what is going on. This leads to a rather interesting mission, and a series of trips all over the galaxy as they hop from place to place trying to work out what has happened.
As usual, this leads to various ‘interactions’ for the crew and as the story progresses, there is a lot of fun, antics and action as they try and try and piece together what is going on.
This is what makes these books so great. The collection of misfits in the crew are unlike anything else, but at the same time, they also remind me (and others) of a lot of the brilliant shows/books from the past and present (No I'm not going to start listing them, there are too many).
However, Dalzelle has not simply copied them, he has made this his own, with his own unique galaxy backdrop, each of his own wonderful characters, and some brilliant tech to tie it all together. There is still the fantastic humour that leaves you in tears at times (there are things that Jason says to Twingo that are hilarious that don’t just leave Crusher in stitches)
One of the things that I think made this book the standout for me personally, was the start of the book, as well as several other bits where we get to learn a lot about Lucky. In this episode, we actually learn how he was created, why he is like he is, who made him, what he is, when and where he was made, and the reasons for not just his senescence, but for his conscience as well. It made this a truly fascinating listen, and Dalzelle has spent a lot of time developing this story line to make sure that it is not just exceptional, but that it honours both his listeners/readers and Lucky himself. This is what makes him such a great character writer.
There was some storyline in relation to Cage and Jason as well, as well as the Ship, which got a complete overhaul, but Lucky was the main star of this book. We also get to see a lot of other battlesynths in action this time around, which added an extra bonus to the book as well.
Overall, as I said earlier, this was a fantastic listen, and Dalzelle continues to show why he is such a brilliant author and why this is such an exceptional series. If you are a fan of the series, you must listen to this for the Lucky info, and if you haven’t, then get the first one – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Overall my favorite of its genre

Any additional comments?

Neck and neck with Expeditionary Force and Bobiverse as this audiobook junkie's best ever space series, I have to give the ultimate nod here, if you consider everything - Story, character development, best mix of humor/conflict/communication/drama, narrator/ consistency. Most importantly - As soon as I begin each book, I am immediately comfortable with the crew, with each being uniquely identifiable. Each section of each book is its own unique adventure. This series doesn't suffer from the usual tendency to fill in between predictable battle sequences.

Earth is Finally Flying in the Galaxy

Great story, tons of action, super explosive and sad ending leaving you hanging to eagerly get to the next book asap. Who or what AI is really in total control of the ConFed. Is it a human, a conglomeration or an AI? Omega Force is not only saving Earth, but galactic empires as well. Thanks to Jason sharing the Ancient's knowledge to humans, we are now flying a few advanced ships into space. The beginning of a really cool aspect to future novels. Great opening. Unlike many of his books, this one started out extremely well. With a story about how Lucky the sentient war bot was born. Chapter 7: Lucky gets to meet his very old and dying creator. This is not only cool but an action packed scene. Chapter 17: Cage has an awesome talk with Lucky, when it comes to family and friends. Cage did this because the video of Lucky's creators talked about him more as a product than a sentient being. Author still has to use one of his stupid trademark quotes as he does in every book: "groaned in protest." Chapter 19: is action packed and absolutely HILARIOUS! Furball Crusher and Jason are jokingly talking about which building to blow up next with their spaceship. I could not stop laughing LOL. Chapter 20: absolutely hilarious about Jason and Crusher laughing and betting if a bad guy will die after all the stun grenades go off that are attached to him. Crusher: I’ll be damned he survived. Jason: you owe me 250 credits. I think this is a technicality. Double or nothing he doesn’t wake up with some sort of brain damage. How could you even tell, he was dumber than shit to begin with. Chapter 23: Author still has to use one of his stupid trademark quotes as he does in every book: “bla bla bla, reasserting control of the conversation / meeting” I still don’t get how Jason trusts a galactic crime boss and his current employer as much as he does. Especially with the transfer and “ownership” of Lucky’s brothers. Think about it, the crime boss would never agree to this in reality. Thank some god this book is fiction SyFy. Chapter 29: Lucky’s brother 707 shows emotion IE “he’d become angry … felt letdown.” Unlikely that Lucky’s new brothers would show emotion when Lucky did not in the beginning. Just another regular mistake by the author and his storylines being inconsistent.

A beloved character becomes even more beloved.

A really nice story and an excellent narration as always. The next arc of the story begins in a spectacular fashion. This time Omega Force has the connections and resources to exist on the grand scale of galactic policies and the human species has evolved in a very cool way. Theres a new mystery that's unexpected and harder to predict. Joshua continues to grow as a writer. Very recommended.

Holy moly

This book was amazing. What a ride! I cried at the end, but hopeful that things materialize in a “living” way. This series has made me laugh, and now, cry. Bravo Joshua Dalzelle, BRAVO!!!!

One of the worst in the series

This book just felt like it was written by a different person. I’m not sure what was up but many of the characters felt off for most of the book. It’s almost like this was fanfic.
