Description

Feel the thunder! 

Stryker Company always brings the fight, but when they relieve embittered and embattled Republic marines, they find an enemy unwilling to stand up and face them. Tasked with protecting the Republic's interests on a mining world, the legionnaires face roadside ambushes, double-dealing locals, and constant sabotage. 

And the mission isn’t as straightforward as they thought it would be. 

As skirmishes escalate into coordinated ambushes and assaults, two squad leaders, Talon and Lankin, are forced to chase after the sparks threatening to ignite the entire populace into a full-blown insurgency. Denied the legionnaires and resources they need to contain the situation, a single platoon fights to complete a mission requiring all of Stryker Company. The outnumbered platoon must work their way from glittering coastal ports, through steamy jungles and dust-covered mines, to find an enemy hidden seamlessly among the indigenous populace. 

The cost is high; the sacrifice great…but nothing short of death itself will stop the legionnaires of Stryker Company from completing its objective. In this stand-alone tale of combat, brotherhood, and sacrifice, these legionnaires will learn what it truly means to make the ultimate sacrifices for their friends. 

Experience this thrilling story of combat, brotherhood and sacrifice set in the Galaxy’s Edge universe as USAF veteran and retired police officer Josh Hayes teams up with Anspach & Cole. If you’re a fan of Legionnaire you’ll love this military sci-fi thriller.

One of the best I've ever read. You will not regret this one.
Listen by yourself at the end if you get emotional.

Might be the best book in it's genre right now.

I listen to a ton of audiobooks, most of them in this genre. The story locked me in early and I felt like I was there with the Legion. I've always been a fan of Ray Porter's narration, but this one is truly exceptional. I hope to listen to a lot more books from Josh Hayes, Jason Ansbach, and Nick Cole. Great book. Highly recommended.

The best book in this series

The reviews for book 2 in this series were so bad that I skipped book 2 and went right to this book. There is no reason to read book 2, as all the books in this series are stand-a-lone. This was the best book in the series. Very good character development and an interesting plot.

"The legion is a calling"

I cried when Ray Porter read the final letter from Chase. His voice was Chase. His narration was excellent. A first for me, had not had the pleasure of listening to his narration until this book. The legion is a calling and these books are becoming my bible.

A genuine Galaxy's Edge novel.

After being slightly disappointed in the conclusion of the Galaxy's Edge series, this book was a pure delight. Well written and you can feel that the authors have either done their research or had military experience. At first I was a little skeptical of the books short runtime but the story flows and is complete. Bonus I placed the main character of this novel in the Galaxy's Edge series before the end of the book.
Also if you can listen to the last chapter and the epilogue without tearing up, you have no soul.

A True Legionnaire Story

If the last book in the series (Iron Wolves) was phoned in by a Point, this one was a true story lived and written by a Legionnaire. I really enjoyed this book in the series and it really was one of the best in the entire Galaxy's Edge series. I just wish it was longer and that the next book would continue on from this book.

Great story and did pretty good narrator

This is another great story in the Galaxy's Edge series. I only deduct one star from the performance because it feels like the narrator oftentimes forces accents that simply do not sound natural

Reminds me of Vietnam Memoirs

I've enjoyed most of the Galaxy's Edge series & have read all but a 1/2 dz (there's alot of them!). A few were a bit too dark & deppressing for me, but they're always filled with high speed (& high stakes) action, lots of KTF & tarnished (usually) good characters you want to root for & bad guys (sometimes complex - or not) to hate.

This one in particular was really sad & a bit emotional for me. It starts off with it's own spoiler alert - a last letter from a son to his parents, a deliver upon my death letter, so even though it doesn't say the name of the guy, you know it's gotta be the main character.

The rest of this is a SPOILER ALERT: (Though because of what I already said, I don't know that it's necessarily needed.)
Maybe I'm just depressed from the whole Covid 19 pandemic, but knowing the end from the start, when that end is a terrible death & when it's plain early on that it's a case of the people you're fighting for not wanting you there (& same feeling exploited bt a corrupt, money hungry government sticking it's nose where it doesn't belong) is so sad & all too familiar.

It's a tragic & terrible loss when such a soldier who believes in Mom & Apple Pie & is loyal to his brothers, dies because his military organization is full of top heavy dead weight that don't give a rat's butt about anything but looking good & advancing their careers & because of that, don't give that soldier the tools he needs for the job & as a result, lots of good men die....

The upside is that throughout the start to finish, It's well written & is a whoke heaping of daring do, shoot em up, heroic action to keep you turning those pages & hoping against all hope that you were wrong. But, alas, I wasn't.

It reminds me a lot of a book I read over 20 years ago, titled "Maverick," a true story about a gunship helicopter (cobra) pilot that served 3 tours of duty in Vietnam & was a POW.

I had actually met the man & when he told me a little about what happened & that he'd voluntarily reupped twice more, & being a staunch pacifist, I thought he was certifiably insane. Until I read his book. Then I understood. That story of his time in Vietnam read like a military non stop action novel.

This story, just like that one, though fiction set in a fantasy future, about an elite soldier, had me running a whole gaunlet of emotions. From fist pumping 'heck yeah, KTF!!!' to wanting to punch out the brass myself (& saying 'about damn time!'), to pulse pounding dread & at the end, a Mother's tears, even though I've never been a soldier or a mother.

It's not often I get so invested in the characters of a story that I cry, especially as it's something I rarely do in real life. And especially as I knew it was coming from the start!
That's a sign of a good story in my humble opinion. They say art imitates life & it certainly did in this case.

I didn't like the fact that every chapter started off with a line from the letter, (the content of which was the most implausible part of the story, how did he know that was his last letter? Or who writes in case I die letters like that? Do they?), but maybe I didn't like it because it built such an emotional connection? I don't know.

I do know in the vast amount of military sci fi out there, this one got my attention & I keep coming back to this series. Planning on reading Madame Guillotine & The Savage Wars triology next. And Galaxy's Edge Book VI after that & then there's maybe 1 or 2 I'll have left to go until they come out with another.
