Présentation de l'éditeur

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?

Une lecture SF militaire de plus pour cet été. Encore un héros embarqué pour les étoiles contre son gré (enfin dans les premières heures) Encore une quête qui n'est pas ce qu'elle parait. Bref rien de nouveau sous le soleil (ou la géante gazeuse)
Et pourtant je maintiens les 4 étoiles: je ne me suis pas ennuyé une seconde à cette lecture très rythmée. Le personnage principal est bien construit et l'empathie avec lui est quasi immédiate. J'ai beaucoup aimé les personnages secondaires. Certains sont d'une fourberie rafraichissante et innatendue de la part d'un ...enfin je ne veux pas spoiler.
En bref un petit plaisir quasi coupable pour pas cher. Pas encore lu le tome 2 je ne m'avancerai pas à son sujet.

Très bon livre, bonne intrigue, bonne vitesse, très relaxant. Une très bonne surprise, un peu inattendue et j ai déjà acheté la suite. Bon mélange de sf Space opera et militaire.

Standard military SF. No great depth to the characters, action and suspense not so well described. If you have other choices....

Omega Rising chronicles the adventures of Jason Burke, a veteran Air Force Pararescue Operator who has isolated himself in a cabin in the woods because of a troubled past. Jason, still being in his early twenties, is predictably bored with his minimalistic existence, that is until what he believes to be an aircraft crashes a few miles from his cabin. Being a curious (and paranoid) young man, Jason grabs his trusty AR-15 and heads out to check out and possibly render aid to the crash. What he finds is an alien gunship eerily similar to a US bomber and when he boards the ship, he is accidentally knocked out by the fumes from burning fuselage in the gunship. After coming to, Jason makes his way to the bridge where he makes the acquaintance of Deetz, a synthetic life-form who is in control of the ship. After a few misunderstandings (and some gunfire) Deetz offers to take Jason on the adventure of a lifetime (or a job to be more precise, albeit one on a different planet), of the good ol' "Travel to exotic locales, meet interesting people, and kill them" kind, and Jason being the bored young man that he is, accepts the offer.

The writing of Omega Rising is surprisingly clear of Grammatical errors (I noticed only two instances in the entire novel, and they were both minor at worst), while at the same time being rich and interesting. The main characters are fully fleshed out, some of the ones we meet later in the novel seem a bit one-dimensional, however that is mostly because they are introduced late in the novel and are not given enough time to grow and evolve. As to the plot, it is definitely the strongest point of this novel, being full of action, intrigue and of course as Joss Whendon once so aptly put,"sudden but inevitable betrayal". Deetz's sarcastic humor and Jason's snarky replies serve to keep the novel light and humorous while still maintaining a serious plot. Overall Omega Rising is a surprisingly cohesive and well written novel, it is unfortunately, and lamentably, short at only about 200 pages.(Although to be honest, I consider books with fewer than 700 pages to be short)

Omega Rising takes you on an adventure much like Firefly, a trip thought the wild frontier of galactic civilization where you stay alive only by relying on your wits and carrying a big gun.

I enjoyed Omega Rising Immensely and will definitely buy the following novels in the series.

HASH(0x988736d8) étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly Engaging 3 février 2013

You know I probably wouldn't have bought this book at a higher price. The description caught my interest, but I worried it would be some semi-sloppy writing. I also thought it would be somewhat sappy and predictable like Andrew Saxon's writing. Which to be truthful, I still read. This writer is definitely a notch above that. I'm looking forward to the next book. The story leaves mysteries for all that it follows on of the classic story lines. There are still things I want to know about the original crew. What is the role of Deetz as we move into the next novel? What is the connection between Doc and the woman at the facility? There is a good balance between answering questions and leaving others to linger. No cliff hanger at the end. The story completes. Mr. Dalzelle, I like your work and hope the spirit with which you wrote this book carries on to the next--I'll be waiting for it.

HASH(0x9887369c) étoiles sur 5 OK, but uniquely sterile 11 juillet 2013

Overall, the book was an enjoyable fast read. Most of the science was believable.

The greatest problem I have with the book is that the protagonist appears to have the intellectual curiosity of a TURNIP! If in contact with an English speaking alien, isn't there things you would like to know about the universe? Philosophy? Science? This guy keeps his mouth shut.

That is why I gave a 3-star rating to an otherwise good plot.

I have purchased the second novel and hope for improvement....then again, I hoped I would be rich and good-looking and that didn't turn out so well.

HASH(0x98873990) étoiles sur 5 Great start 27 février 2013

In the traditions of old school space opera, its slightly campy, highly implausible, somewhat predicable, with the standard cast of characters and skill sets. The story develops logically enough, although I would expect most would have asked a great many more questions in this situation. Its well written, dialog is clean albeit too spartan at times, good action, not too much standing around talking. All in all a very good first book. Room for improvement. I'll buy the next book.

Par Athrogate22 - Publié sur

I write reviews on a lot of e-books and to be honest most of my reviews are negative. Joshua Dalzelle's pace is perfect. He doesn't waste time. Other authors stretch a 1-book story into 3 books by dragging on and on (George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones comes to mind). This book sets out to tell a story and tell it well, and mission accomplished. The characters are well-conceived and introduced. They're likeable. They don't mess around. No silly moral dilemma's about annoying crap.

Room for improvement (constructive only):

1) I did notice spelling and grammar problems...but it wasn't much and wasn't distracting, just could be cleaned up a bit.

2) Give this guy, or at least some crew member, a love interest of some kind. This is an all-male crew and they do kick some righteous ass, but come on. 2 books down and the only mention of the opposite sex are a few regretful wistful one-line memories and a chance meeting that isn't explored at all. And then there's the ice-queen captain of the other ship. Is she hot? Does Captain Burke think so? We have no idea. It's like Captain Burke isn't interested in chicks at all. Sorry, he's a young human male on an amazing journey through space. There's nothing hotter than sexy aliens. Captain Kirk taught us that. You've placed in the reader's mind that there are many species that are almost indistinguishable from humans, but haven't shown a single instance of any crew member seeing an attractive female. That's a problem and eventually you gotta do something about it. It's still early and they've been busy saving people, but book 3 better have something addressing this.

3) Right now he's all "protect Earth's location." How long is this going to last? How long before someone takes a close enough interest in Captain Burke to find out more about who he is and where he came from? Many villains that can't beat the man will look for leverage and kidnap his wife/kids/family to control him. In Burke's case, his entire planet could be kidnapped or threatened with destruction/slavery and held as leverage! The rest of humanity is in complete and total ignorance, but has so much to offer this interstellar community. We make great alcohol for starters and can trade all sorts of commodities. We obviously can out-strategize many of these guys, as Captain Burke has so ably shown us. Nukes work, that's been proven. This isn't independence day shielding we're talking about. A large part of the draw of space opera is the vision of humanity moving into the stars. At this rate, when Burke dies (either from his exploits or old age), that's it. Humanity is right where I am at my computer. Somehow, at some point, humanity needs to be brought into the fold in some manner.

Keep writing, and I and a increasingly growing following will keep reading. Because you are doing it so well.
