Omega Sub #6 Raven Rising review

81ThkeHg4cL 629x1024 Omega Sub #6: Raven Rising

Hidden in an underground fortress, the insane U.S. president and his elite corps of stormtroopers, survivors of the nuclear holocaust that has left the world in ruins, make plans to enslave what remains of the human race. Original.

This is it, the final book in the Omega Sub series. The series concept was pretty great, the execution of the idea though came up short. There’s a mary sue character in charge of the ship, his brother is a mary sue character and everyone else? they’re just not up to the captain’s example. Take their head engineer, he has a name, but he’s referred to as “Flazy” throughout the series, which stands for “fat and lazy”. Yes, the guy that’s responsible for the most advanced nuclear submarine in the Navy is a fat and lazy s.o.b. that can’t even get his captain’s respect. Perhaps the captain is too busy with his nearly perfect girlfriend for introspection. Did I mention that she’s the only lady on the ship and despite the rules that the captain mentions several times, she’s there to kiss him whenever he does his brave duty.

ugh.

Add to the list of things that I didn’t like about the series: the science. Here’s page 154 of the book I just finished, the last paragraph is specifically what made me roll my eyes :

2018 03 12 00.49.32 1 576x1024 Omega Sub #6: Raven Rising

And finally, the politics involved here were just silly. There’s an entire paragraph given to how silly it was to start monitoring our waterways for acidic rain and how all that money was wasted in trying to preserve our national assets.

    1. That book cover looks like GTA Online DLC.
