Summary

Captain Jason Burke is a man apart, and not just because he's the only of his kind for thousands of light-years in any direction. The changes to his body and to his genetic code have made him faster, stronger, more able to survive in his dangerous occupation...but they've also ensured that he'll never truly fit in with others of his species. He always assumed he would live and die with his crew and never lay eyes on another human again. He was wrong.

The mercenary captain learns through back-channel information that Earth may be in danger and, worse, that he may have been a contributing factor. He now faces the choice of ignoring the problem and allowing his own species to fight their own battles or returning to help and risk making the situation worse. Can he just sit idly by while his species faces such a dire threat?

Jason does it again

what a perfect conclusion to the introduction of the human race and Jason's univers comes crashing down on earthlings that aren't ready and have made a deal with the wrong species.

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.

The simple story telling brilliance continues.

I've enjoyed the whole series immensely and it just gets better and better. Can't wait for the next installment and indeed for the next 10. You reading this Joshua?

The characters are given real voices.

This was like hearing from old friends again. Jason Burke is not perfect but he recognizes it. He does dumb things sometime but the reader also doesn't know what else to do so we share in it.

Most important, the voices are so good, if they ever make a movie they'll have to get Paul Heitsch to dub every part.

The Omega Force series is awesome!

I really enjoyed the series and while the last book felt a little like the end of the story, but, there is also several other threads the story can use to be continued. I would love to learn more about the little surprise at the end and can see this series potentially carrying on for quite a while longer! Recommended If you like space and science fiction.

Fantastic Sci Fi

I have listened to every book in this series. If it is not the best ever then it is very close. I thoroughly enjoyed every character. I had a hard time putting this down. If you love space opera at its best then you will love this whole series. I surely hope Joshua Dalzelle is not finished with this series -I can't wait for the next book!!!!!!

I'm going to miss these guys

What did you love best about The Human Factor?

What I loved best was getting to spend time with the characters I've come to love in this series. Jason, Twingo, Cage, Lucky, Doc, and Crusher.

What other book might you compare The Human Factor to and why?

Maybe the Ember War Saga another story with well developed characters and a great story line.

Have you listened to any of Paul Heitsch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Heitsch has done a masterful job on this series. Each character has a well developed unique voice. His performance helps you learn their personality.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I've laughed out lot countless time throughout this entire series. The crew relationships are so believable, their interactions so real, you can't help but laugh at some of there smart-ass comments towards each other.

Any additional comments?

I am really going to miss these guys. The worst part of any series is when it ends. This series ending might make me shed a tear.

Continues to be an interesting series

This continues to be an interest in serious. I plan to continue on with it. Somewhat slow with character development for some of the characters but over all quite Entertaining.
