Summary

The complete space opera series for fans of Babylon 5, Deep Space 9, and kick-ass action sci-fi.

Commander Dalton Reeves is a maverick officer with exceptional genetic strength and a dark family history—a history that will come back to haunt him.

Punished for exceeding orders one time too many, he’s packed off to the "The Abyss"—the most dangerous space station in the galaxy. But a posting that should have led to five years in obscurity will propel Reeves into the center of an interstellar war against a long-forgotten alien adversary with a bitter grudge.

With the six realms on the brink of all-out war, Reeves must face his demons and be prepared to go to any lengths to become the warrior and the leader the galaxy desperately needs him to be.

Dive into this epic space-opera science-fiction series, set in a vivid multi-species universe. It’s filled with danger, intrigue, and drama played out against the tense backdrop of a looming war versus an ancient and bitter alien enemy.

Painful

Seriously struggled to finish it.
I'm currently 25 hours in and do wish I didn't go more than 10 hours in but I both paid for it out of my credits and wanted to give it a go.
I've listened to audio books since the early 2000s with Terry pratchett.
The main characters are idiots, they forget other character developments (replacement of blood being over 90% of failure and death followed by a long conversation and inner monologue of how they can sustain a high work output when running) and are just plainly not paying attention to what is going on around them.
The lead character is whiny, not likable and goes headlong in to stupid situations and we are reminded every time he had immense strength so just powers his way through.

I don't know the market place for the book; maybe pre teens, but definitely not adults.

Solid Sci-Fi

At first, I had trouble loving the main character and his sidekick, but watching them develop has been endearing. The story is interesting, not formulaic like many Sci-Fis I've read and touches on some deep psychological concepts that are enjoyable to work through. Highly Recommend.

Absolutely great follow up to Omega Directive

Great story line! I can see how another addition could possibly be added to this story. Plenty of open ends to work with. Great job Mr. Ogden!

Yeah. Not as good. The leader is irritating.

Somehow the first series & 2nd both could not get narrators to level 5; they are talented, but. The 1st has more talent; this one SHOUTS the (often stupid) words of Reeves. These stories are not as good also. STILL, it’s a bargain for the set if you can handle less than stellar storyline & narration.

Good if you have the time.

This is good but move really slow. Their are a few parts that are very slow. It also doesn't always transition the best. It's still a good listen.

"Wretched hive of scum and villainy" Noir

I try to check out all the long SF&F audiobooks.

In this book, Commander Dalton Reeves is assigned to The Abyss, the only space station in a neutral zone, where many alien races reside. It's a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Immediately, Reeves tries to reform the place. Frequently, Reeves gets attacked, he tells the thugs to stand down, they don't, and he beats them. Standard Noir stuff, often straining credulity, but entertaining. There's never more than a few character to keep track of at a time, so it's all an easy listen. Instead of a hard-boiled detective, it's a hard-boiled space station commander.

I've got two other books in my queue that are better stories, but they're more complicated, demand more attention, and aren't as entertaining. This audiobook overuses the noir tropes, but lots of fun. The narrator is great.

Recommended.

The most dislikeable protagonist in history.

Maybe the most dislikeable protagonist in Sci-Fi literary history, the story is poorly written, and there is no way I can finish listening to 54 hours of this childish trash.
The narrator's interpretation of the protagonist, makes him sound like a total jerk.
