So – I was hooked in to the book at the summary, and while I expected complexity, I did not realize that the depth of the story and concepts, all to illustrate a basic tale of good versus evil would be hidden within these pages.Was this review helpful?

It was an interesting concept, with forays into telepathy and mind-control, characters that convey good and evil in equal measures, political and tactical alliances and a battle for control. The need to know what direction the author would take Omega, and whether good could triumph was a major impetus for me to keep reading, even when I found repetition of simplistic elements, or a passage that was overly detailed and would have better served the plot with less information given, but more detail shown.
What was not clearly explained, and leaves me wondering is the apparent naiveté of the members of Omega. While they do question those they encounter about their activities, there doesn’t seem to be any further investigation of the story or the belief in it. Where I was confused was if their skills were better attuned to “truthful” statements, or if the passivity of the characters that comprised Omega was not thought to be important enough to address, or somehow I missed the explanations early on. In situations where they must be offensive, the passivity does seem to fade to the background, and they do manage to focus and get things done.
Devotees of science fiction stories will find many things to like in this book, and find it unique. Some readers may find difficulty in the basic language of the text: the author is a university professor, with writing style and word choice best suited to those with a facility in the English language, and ability to follow / grasp complex scientific concepts and find the interrelations between concepts presented and plot elements happening. It was not an easy read, but it was a read that was unique in concept although I could not read this all in one sitting.
I did receive an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review for the Indies Rock promotion for I am, Indeed. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
