Overview

Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, field leader for a black ops organization known as Endgame, is accustomed to feeling capable of handling most any situation. It is a confidence forged in the fires of battle against both monsters and madmen. But the introduction of Asya, a sister he never knew existed, and the kidnapping of his parents has him reeling. Using Endgame’s resources, King and his ‘Chess Team’ (Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight) scour the planet for his parents, tracking a man known to the world as Alexander Diotrephes, but known to King by another name. The legendary Hercules is alive, well and plotting something beyond imagining—something that will affect two thousand years of history.

While the team is spread thin, an intruder walks past their secret headquarters’ defenses, sits himself down in the director’s chair and waits. When he’s discovered by Endgame’s coordinator, Tom Duncan, Callsign: Deep Blue, he’s easy to identify—Richard Ridley, the team’s oldest and most dangerous enemy, who is supposed to be dead.

But he isn’t Ridley. He is a clone in search of his master, the real Ridley, who yet lives and is being held captive by the same man holding King’s parents. Believing Ridley is the only one capable of stopping Alexander’s plans, a temporary and tenuous alliance is formed, and Alexander’s location is soon uncovered. The team, along with three clones, heads for a citadel buried beneath the ruins of ancient Carthage. Already in the area, King and Asya arrive first to find their parents and a staggering family secret that leads to the end of King’s life as he knows it. The rest of the team arrives to find Richard Ridley free to act, an army of high-tech mercenaries bearing down on their location and evidence of their leader’s demise.

King is dead. Long live King.

Omega is the fifth full-length novel in the Jack Sigler/Chess Team series, following Pulse, Instinct, Threshold, and Ragnarok, as well as the prequel novel Prime, and eight standalone novellas focusing on the individual characters in the series.

    GREAT STORY LINE

    This is not my favorite Robinson novel but it IS an exciting, fast-paced story. It gETS a little wordy in spots but all is forgiven when it comes to JR. One of my top favorite authors pulled it off again!

    OMEGA By Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour OMEGA is not just an

    OMEGA
    By
    Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour
    OMEGA is not just an adrenaline rush, it is a hypodermic surge straight to the heart. Robinson and Gilmour have teamed up to write a blistering thriller set in Carthage, Tunisia—in two different millennia!
    The Chess Team will fight its greatest battle against two foes that may just be unbeatable. Richard Ridley is nearly immortal due to having an understanding of the Mother Tongue. If he can find and release the contents of the Chest of Adoon, there will be no stopping him from maniacal destruction and world domination. Their other foe is Alexander (Hercules): the son of Zeus—born an immortal—and living in the twenty-first century.
    Asya, call-sign Pawn, King’s sister, accompanies him and the team to Ridley’s Omega laboratory in Carthage to free their parents from their captor, Hercules. During a fight, Asya watches Hercules grab King and pull him into a vortex, killing himself and King.
    The rest of the team, under the leadership of Queen, must overcome the loss of their leader and try to fight and stop the unstoppable Ridley. While this is happening in the now, King and Hercules are in Carthage, in a distant past, fighting a battle of the heart. King doesn’t know it yet, but he is about to write history.
    The collaboration of Robinson and Gilmour results in a complex, character-driven thriller with some science fiction and fantasy thrown in. There are references to past Chess Team adventures and reading them first might help a newbie, but it’s not necessary. OMEGA can stand on its own, much like the Colossus of Rhodes. I am a huge Chess Team fan, and OMEGA tops them all!

    Omega is Epic!!!!!!

    Omega is the epitome of what a good action/adventure novel should be.  This is the Chess Team novel all the others have been leading to.  It IS done right!  I've been reading a lot of Jeremy Robinson's books lately, especially all the Chess Teams.  Once I started with Prime, I had to read them all.  Omega was worth the wait!  An Epic end to an Epic storyline.  I've loved every one of the previous novels, yes, some more than others, but they are altogether one big, fantastic story-like watching a TV series on Netflix from start to finish, and this is the "series finale" that most shows never get.  But it's not even the end!!!!!  There's more books coming!  This is good.  So is Omega.  Read at least the previous 6 novels first, but if you want the full story, read em all with the novellas in the middle.
    It goes:  1. Prime 2. Pulse 3. Instinct 4. Threshold 5. Call Sign novellas :5a King book 1, 5b Queen, 5c Rook, 5d Bishop, 5e Knight, 5f King book 2: Underworld, 5g Deep Blue, 5h King book 3: Blackout (King books available as Brainstorm trilogy)
    6. Ragnarok  7. Omega
    That's a lot, I know.  I was intimidated too.  But so is watching 7 seasons of a TV show.  Same thing almost.  And after Omega, which you should DEFINITELY BUY when you are caught up, you will be left wanting more just like me.  And that's not really a bad thing!

    Jeremy Robinson hits a grand slam AGAIN with his latest Chess Team novel, Omega. Jack Sigler (King) gets himself in some trouble with Alexander (Hercules) and fights for LONG, LONG, LONG time to get back to his team and loved ones. King not only fights some incredible enemies but fights time itself! such a great twist in this Chess Team installment.

    If you love the Hercules character in the previous novels, you will love a this book. The depth and history that Jeremy gives him is nothing I could have guessed.

    ANOTHER A+ FOR MR. ROBINSON

    I love Robinson's books and this one did not disappoint at all! Great action, crazy story and surprises that were not expected. If you have read the previous Chess Team books you will love this. If you haven't you need to check them out. Can't wait for the next ones to come out this summer.

    I have so many things that I want to say but I can't because I don't want to spoil this amazing novel for anyone.  So no spoilers here.  It's enough to say that this book takes the team, and a couple of characters in particular, to some very interesting and unexpected places.  Adding to the fun, Omega takes what we know about the series so far— and some of the characters— and just turns all of that on its ear.  There's some really brilliant stuff that you wouldn't expect to see surface this far into a well-established series.




    Of course we get the requisite gun toting, ass-kicking that we expect from our favorite special-ops team, and a few things are revealed that threaten to make us look back at the earlier books in an entirely different way.




    If you're a fan of the Chess Team/Jack Sigler thriller series, you don't want to miss this book.  And if you haven't taken a look at the earlier books yet, what are you waiting for?

    Breakneck Publisher? Appropriate name for this book!

    Always enjoyable and not to be taken before bedtime! Picks up steam and rolls to a rousing finish. How sad for Jack though that he had to spend all that time (no spoilers here) without a Jeremy Robinson book to read!

    This is one action-packed story you won't want to miss. It has a few twists in there that you will never see coming and answers a lot of previously unanswered questions. Everything becomes clear as the authors tie up this story nicely. Yep, just when you think that it, they're done for, things happen!!!

    In Omega, Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour manage to send you from giggling over some new and amusing term to jaw dropped amazement in the drop of a hat. This is definitely the best one yet! I felt like I was on a thrillercoaster ride of insanity mixed with a little South Park "They killed Kenny! Those bastards!" Loved it!
