Description

Galaxy's Edge contains Legionnaire through to the end of Galactic Outlaws

On the edge of the galaxy, a diplomatic mission to an alien planet takes a turn when the Legionnaires, an elite special fighting force, find themselves ambushed and stranded behind enemy lines. They struggle to survive under siege, waiting on a rescue that might never come.

In the seedy starport of Ackabar, a young girl searches the crime-ridden gutters to avenge her father's murder; not far away, a double-dealing legionniare-turned-smuggler hunts an epic payday; and somewhere along the outer galaxy, a mysterious bounty hunter lies in wait.

Galaxy's Edge combines sleek starfighters, exotic aliens, loyal bots, blasters, scoundrels, heroes, and powerful enemies in a thrilling adventure that will take you back to that magic place from a long time ago.

I would listen to RC Bray read a phone book

The title of my review may seem to take away from the book itself, but to be quite honest, the book was great. It shoved you into a whole new galaxy without apology and you are forced to play catch up. There’s no prolonged preamble to explain and flesh out the world, you are just there as a fresh set of eyes taking it all as a given. I like this form of world building. You are here to witness the story, the characters, the action and the moment. No distractions to paint the world. Your mind provides the image without hand holding. It becomes yours.

The initial story felt abandoned when you then flash forward 7 years. I wanted to know what happened to the characters we met. So it was jarring starting a whole new tale. Almost felt like it was unnecessary. But even unnecessary, it was a great introduction with tons of action and plenty of great character moments. The second story is a sprawling adventure that reminded me very much of the Firefly series, or the film Serenity for those who don’t know Firefly. (Watch it. You won’t regret it).

An ok story to be honest. Brilliant performance

Was thoroughly bored for the first few chapters. Story picked up in the last few chapters. Definitely not the best military SciFi I have read/ heard this year.

Sci-fi Fan? Listen up!

Seriously. I’ve been reading sci-fi for eons, and in the last 5 years listening on audible non stop. I drive for work so audio books galore. This series is some of the best written sci-fi out there. A bit of a slow start in part I, and yes, you do have to watch out for a couple of sections that are a flash forward or backwards, but man when the story picks up steam you can’t stop listening. Great technical writing too. Just get it! Cheers

not very engaging

the SciFi element it there but limited. nothing about this universe brought a unique experience. the characters purposes felt shallow And unmotivated. hardly any comic relief either.

Ok wow, I am convinced

I have overlooked this series multiple times, thinking it was a copycat style to the other titles like it. Man was I wrong, these first two books are awesome! The series creates a giant universe with interesting characters and all done in great writing.

The authors have a gem on their hands, and RC Bray is as amazing as he always is.

Very very good

Almost gave up on this in the beginning of the story but gave it another chance and I'm glad I did. I'd compare it to a darker off brand Star Wars.

bit of a disconnect between parts

this is a good space adventure but there seemed to be quite a disconnect between part one and part two. it takes a while to catch up and the ending leaves you hanging. obviously there has to be more book forthcoming but I feel as though there should have been a bridge between the two parts. the narration is masterful although he used his Skippy voice for a truly dreadful character in this book. and if you know Bray you should know about Skippy the meh by now.

As scrambled as Rex’s Memories

This book was all over the place in time, stories, flashbacks, character development, character devolution, numerous subplots, and left a lot of questions to be answered. R.C. Bray did an outstanding performance and this book series has a lot of promise; however, this particular book seems thrown together. It really reminds me of an amalgamation of Halo, Warhammer 40k, Starcraft, EVE, and Stephen Sommer’s The Mummy Trilogy. To be honest, I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this book. I want to like it, but it’s a hate/love relationship at the moment. Get it if you like sci-fi, stay away if your OCD about storylines.

great story

R.C. Bray does it Again! Great story. At first I felt like it was all over the place jumping back and forth to flash backs for almost every character.....however you start to see all the storylines and flashbacks merge into an epic ending with a crazy cliff hanger.....ive already preordered book 2!

KTF!

So good - All the action you want with a great main character. Bray is such an incredible narrator. I'm only chiming in to get the other books up on audible. So disappointing when the rest of a good series is unavailable. Hurry up and take my money!

it felt too much like starwars at points

there were spots i glazed over because i was picturing han solo instead of the character. instead of a wookie they have an insect thing. the first half of the book the legionares fighting and such is outstanding.

War never changes.

QR: Great war story, dark humor, good first person.


From the first 10 minutes in you'll be hooked, RC Bray voices this war story perfectly. If you've ever served, you'll catch a lot of references that'll make you laugh. Even if you haven't, there is just the slightest bit of dark humor to keep the action moving. I would highly recommend it if your looking for that action book fix.

good book. not the best story, but it held my attention. RC Bray is, as always, the best narrator.

average star wars book<br />

not much to say other than if you like starwars you will probably like this. it's not a masterpiece but it's serviceable.

Best story in a long time!

Wow... this book was the first that's kept me engaged throughout in a long time. I never got bored, it keeps you guessing and on your toes throughout. It paints a beautiful world, with vivid and deep characters with a secret or two.

fantastic book and Incredibly enjoyable listen

the only negative thing I have to say about this book is that there is only one currently available in the series on Audible. outside of that it is a deep long story there's a bit of buildup in the first several hours but fantastic and worth the wait and to appreciate not only the characters being developed but the universe that the story takes place in. highly would recommend if anyone has ever been a fan of Mass Effect Halo Ender's Game or Star Wars. think of the Mandalorian Wars and Star Wars and you have the legions in this book except tired mysteriously with our own time. Through individuals who has memories of more less our present day and thousands of years into the future..

definitely worth listening to
