Publisher's Summary

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).

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.

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.

First book good second meh

I really enjoyed the first book the characters were engaging and interesting the second book was less so i hope the next on is just as good or better than the first. As always R.C Bray is amazing in his performance only way i made it threw the second book.

Performance top notch story ok

The reading of the story was great. The story itself was not. At times felt like Halo then star wars. A lot of jumping between characters withim the chapters made it confusing who was currently talking.

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.

I wanted to love this, but . . .

I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. Audible kept recommending Galaxy's Edge for me, R.C. Bray is a narrator I enjoy, and at 17+ hours it was a good value for the credit. What could go wrong? But for some reason, I just couldn't enjoy this -- or even follow the story at some points. The characters are so thinly sketched that it was difficult for me to identify or empathize with any of them -- or even keep track. (It reminds me of Star Wars in that way, which seems to be the type of universe the authors were hoping to evoke.) As other reviewers have pointed out, there's a disconnect between the two parts, although that's the least of the problems. If you like compelling characters, you won't find them here. If you get confused about continuity when listening to audiobooks (as I sometimes do), don't buy this book. But is it worth one credit? Probably. I'm on the fence.

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.

KTF

I've been waiting for this book for MONTHS. The story sucks you in with the first line and never lets up even if you try to tap out. Great story, great performance, and I'm ready to pre-order the next one. You get 2 books for the price of 1 credit, so stop standing around reading this review and buy it already.

The Perfect Narrator for an amazing book!

Would you listen to Galaxy's Edge again? Why?

Absolutely. The time flew by listening to this.

What did you like best about this story?

The writing was top-notch, and Bray's portrayal of Keel in part two was wonderful.

Which scene was your favorite?

Ravi and Keel's first appearance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The galaxy is a dumpster fire.

Good narration wasted on bad writing

Basically, this book is simply only an endless scene of hopeless battle with the equally endless series of clichés. The characters are incredibly flat and the writing is of a level that just leaves me wondering who in their right mind thought that this was worth publishing. I bought it for the narrator. Bray is very good, but narration and good production can't save writing this bad. There is more that one book/story here but an hour into the second one I simply gave up.

Part 1 was great!

The last 2/3 of the book seems to have been written by a different author. The mindless introspections went on for pages and pages... I had to fast forward through a lot of it. I almost put it aside but managed to power through to the end. Some introspection is needed to develop a character but this went way beyond what was necessary... at one point I was wondering if the authors were being paid by the word... I give it two stars for pet 1 and zero for that last 2/3 of the book.

One word, Fantastic!

I was totally not expecting this one folks! It’s a high flying, hard fighting, cosmic adventure. After it was over I couldn’t wait to find out more about this series, and low and behold there are seven books in the series. This audio book consist of the first two novels in it. I certainly hope audible is producing the rest of them and they will be released soon.So break out the credit and get this one in your library because it is totally worth it.
