Omega Project Trailer
This book sounded exciting and I couldn't wait to read it, sad to say I was disappointed and couldn't finish it. The plots were good but to me weren't fully developed. Everything ended quickly so the next adventure could be introduced which left me feeling cheated.
The writing style was frustrating, too much hopping around making it a little difficult to understand. Also there is just too much sexual content that wasn't necessary to make a story good. Overall I give this one 2 stars.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
