Description

Jacob Knight wakes up to a bloodbath at the mall, with him at the epicenter. He is quickly arrested and forced to fight on a secret squad of metahumans who are given a choice between forced military service or prison. 

The problem is, he has no idea what his ability is, and no one will give him a straight answer. But one thing is clear: he needs to figure it out, and fast, since the success of his first mission hinges on him.

Prologue 

I heard her scream again, yelling as loud as she could muster, but it was lost in the fire this time, unable to penetrate the heat. I think she ordered him to stop. We both ignored her anyway, just staring at each other through the white energy pouring out of his body. It was like a powerful storm of pure thermal plasma raging out of him, like shaking hands with the center of a super nova. 

He wasn’t angry. If anything, he was a little surprised, but there was something else there too. 

Respect. 

He was a monster who could survive an ungodly amount of heat, who could live in the flames. And I was equally a monster, who could stand in the flames with him. Something no one else could do. Something he could respect.

Pretty good

Looks like the only other review right now is by someone who gives almost exclusively one star reviews for everything. Objectively, this book is a good listen with excellent narrators and a solid plot. This writer deserves some respect.

this is a dumpster fire

The main character is a sociopath as he literally finds out that he may have killed his girlfriend then immediately after hes flirting with some strange woman.
The false build up of what his powers is stupid. no military or merc unit is going to send untested agents into the feild and now he suddenly can sense what other peoples powers are with no hint of him having that power at all. This needed an editor to slap the author in the face and tell him he needed like 5 more chapters in the beginning of character development, maybe not switch between shy and overly sexually aggressive within I kick you not 20 minutes tops from the characters perspective and to stop writing this like a bad fan fic of the suicide squad movie(not even the comic the already bad movie).
I wanted to like it cause I somewhat enjoyed this life of immortal book, and I usually like anything Jeff Hays is in cause he seems to have good taste in his narration picks, but this is just a bad.

So good!


Soundbooth did an amazing job with bringing this story to life, while I'm not sure about the seemly random music clips in the background, on the whole the voice work and minor use of sound effects was spectacular ! couple that with this evolving story line that only draws you in more and more as it continues, its a fun ride, I'm looking forward to the next one!

the soundeffects were annoying

The story and overall performance were good but the sound effects were really bad. The music that started playing was to loud sometimes so it was hard to hear what he was saying. And most of the soundeffects didn´t add anything to the performance of the audiobook most of it was just annoying and didn´t fit that good to the situations and the music overall was a bad choise of music imo. This did not ruin the audiobook tought since the narrators did a pretty good job and I will get the next book in the series.

Teenage whinebag

I barely got through the first hour. The book is nothing but a teenage boy whining. He has no balls and allows everyone to just run over him except the girl he just all of a sudden is completely smitten with. Stupid drivel. Complete waste of a credit.

Pretty good story

The story itself was actually really good. The narrator, however, made it really hard to get into they story. Overall I would recommend it.

Spectacular voice actors made this very enjoyable

Despite a very few shortcomings, Omega Squad sets up a very interesting world with a pretty decent story. Narrators made this a great listen.
