Description

They promised him one weekend a month. The House or Reason swore the 9th would never leave their gentle homeworld. But after Kublar, things changed for Sergeant Fetch and the Caledonian Reserve Legion Corps. Thrown into a meat grinder conflict in a desperate bid to hold the line, it doesn’t matter whether you’re reserve or active, only that you kill and survive.

A searing tale of combat and honor at any price from a wounded veteran of the War in Iraq who fought to keep the MSRs open from Mosul to Tikrit.

A bit monotone

Although the story evokes dread and sympathy, the pacing and the reading both rendered this book monotone.

Great story but narration is too fast

The story was great and character development was superb. I just felt that the maturation was too fast. The action sequences were great but points in the story where the pacing slowed down didn’t have a slow down in performance. I feel like spots where there should have been tension are rushed past.

Galaxy's Edge - Order of the Centurion series

Another great addition to the Galaxy's Edge universe. A great story by a fantastic author, told by a good narrator.(won't make you want to run your fingernails down a chalkboard!)

Action packed and a whole lot of KTF.

5 star all the way. JR delivers this action packed book to the Order of The Centurion series with a completely different writing style and a whole lot of badass. The story is written in a way that it’s very direct and nearly non stop action. The delivery is perfect and with Christian Rummel you just can’t go wrong. I highly recommend The Reservist as well as JR’s series The Sleeping Legion. Enjoy, Leej’s and KTF.

KT freaking F

Damn this book is freaking good. Just a regular joe morphing into a true LEEJ. War brings out those who can hold the lune and those who are not worth the air they breath. Order of the Centurion gets better and better. Keep up the work brothers. KTF

I wept

This war vet suggests you not take this novel lightly. Well written from the heart. Damn.

Few narrators are better than Christian Rummel. I liked him for The Remaining series as well.

Wow!

This was another fantastic addition to the Galaxy's Edge universe. JR Handley did a great job staying true to the story started by Nick Cole and Jason Anspach.

Goosebumps where I didn't know I could get them.

Experience the horrors of war in a sci-fi universe far enough from home that you still feel safe. Mostly. Great performance. Stunning story. One of those stories that you will be thinking about for a long time.

Amazing book

This is one of the best stand alone GE books I have listened to this far. As an active duty Soldier it give you a different perspective of those who serve in the Reserve force. Thank you JR Handley and to Jason Anspach and Nick Cole for allowing him to share this story. Christian Rummel, great performance.

High Ops Tempo and Brutal

This was great! The hits just kept on coming and became more vicious and gut wrenching with every new engagement. Handley so clearly depicts the continual stress and emotional rollercoaster of sustained combat operations I felt just as worn out as the characters. This felt just as real as some points from my own life. Great story, great performance, well done!

Fine Addition to the Galaxy’s Edge Saga

Gritty, authentic and compelling, The Reservist is built upon the bedrock of real-life combat experiences of US Army veteran JR Handley. He did an excellent job of synthesizing what I think of as We Were Young and Soldiers set in space. Aside from heart-pounding action, he poignantly grasped the inner turmoil of the Soldier in the midst of combat. His poignant treatment of the warrior’s condition ran the gambit of rage, survivor’s guilt, courage and grief. Thanks to his time in service, he wove it in a way I have seldom seen so effectively done. I look forward to more from Handley.
