Publisher's Summary

The Battle Lines Are Drawn.

The Coalition is reeling. New Vega and its other worlds have fallen beneath the boot of the newly allied Savage marines, and the death count continues to rise at a staggering rate. One thing is clear: The war to come will be a fight for the very survival of the species. For both sides in this conflict, now is the time to become what fate, and victory, demand.

The Savages - post-human monsters who believe themselves to be gods - are intent on remaking civilization in their own violent and pathological image. Yet their alliance is tenuous. Among the many tribes of the Uplifted, as they call themselves, the struggle for supremacy rages on. All know that in the end there can be only one tribe. One leader. One truth.

Meanwhile humanity’s last, desperate hope is the formation of a new kind of fighting force: The Legion. Those select few who are hardy enough - or foolish enough - to undertake the relentless, grueling, and merciless candidate training will have the chance to be transformed into mythical heroes...or die trying. They will be pushed beyond their physical and mental limits as they seek to survive an unforgiving planet, lost and derelict ghost spaceships, and, worst of all, the cold, unflinching brutality of Tyrus Rechs. At the end of this crucible, only the one percent of the one percent will earn the right to be called...

...Legionnaires.

Performed by Stephen Lang (Tombstone, Avatar), Galaxy’s Edge: Gods & Legionnaires brings you into the mind of the Savage marines and shows you the heart required to enter the Legion in the second epic installment of Galaxy’s Edge: Savage Wars.

Skip this book in the series

If you have read book one and was excited by it you’ll be eager to rebook two . However, don’t do it!

This book is all filler. It describes characters and military training that doesn’t add to the overall story arc. Do you wanna understand the Savages? Then knock yourself out reading the non-linear, random, self talk, the main character does for over half the book. I skipped 3 chapters and DID NOT miss anything significant ! In the end, only a chapter worth of information is useful for the overall series story arc. They could have put this info in book one or three. But hey, authors make money selling books...

If you skip this book it wouldn’t affect your enjoyment of the series. The only good news was I was able to return it and get my Audible credit back.

Hardest of the new series to listen to.

Way to much existential pondering made this a hard listen. First 3/4 of God's was a chore. Thankfully picked up at the end and Legionnaires half was sold good. Will keep listening to these books.Stephen Lang is really growing in the series.

Better than the first

Honestly, this book was way better than the first. The narrator is still a weakness, but the story is a solid addition to the universe.

Another great commentary on world politics.

The Savages are a cautionary tale of Liberalism and how it can be taken too far.

Another explosive delivery

Book 2 in the Savage series gives us another look into the past, the structure of the book, the deep dive into the mind of a savage marine, the look at the brutal training by Tyrus Rechs. Stunning writing as ever by Mr. Cole and Mr. Anspach. The narration by Mr. Stephen Lang is stunning. I sincerely hope that he will return to narrate many more Galaxy's Edge books. he brings the passion and personality of the books to life. The Gravitas of his narration is amazing. Please get these books, and to the authors, pleases keep writing! KTF!

Slow Start, Hard Finish

This book starts off slow, some repeativeness from the perspective of an (then) alien mind compared to what we are now, comes to a peak from the alien mind, before switching over to a more recognizable thought process. Extremely well done by the authors and magnificent performance by the narrator.

For those who are going to complain that this isn't Bray, don't take it out on the reviews, narrator, or authors, take it up with Bray and his agency.

"Good Thought, Good Thought"

Easily the best installment in the Galaxy's Edge franchise with Stephen Lang so far.

BIG PRIZES!

Let Stephen Lang narrate as you open a door into the mind of a Savage Marine, a mind like a carnival madhouse where it's either honor and glory and BIG BIG PRIZES, or Game Over. Mind the step, it's forever in there.

Into the mind of the Uplifted

I’m a huge Galaxy Edge fan, I eat this stuff up, so maybe I’m a bit biased, sue me. Book is split in two, first is an in depth look inside the life of those known as Savages, at least one group, the last half was the grueling Legionnaire selection, which I found necessary, Tyrus Rechs understands what it will take to fight the biomedical enhanced humans, both are well done, Steven Lang has grown on me, already pre-ordered the next installment

I’ll take the burger

This book is different from the rest of the Galaxy’s Edge series and that’s a good thing. The first half of this story is told from the POV of a savage, and we finally get a peak inside the warped double think of that society. It’s not like Legionnaire or even savage wars book 1, but rather a more literary perspective on the GE universe. Maybe not for everyone but I love this kind of stuff. It’s dystopian and offers a commentary on the world, our world, in a way that would make Gene Roddenberry smile. Or maybe roll over in his grave. But either way, it’s insightful.

Fantastic

How they manage to regularly put out these books at the quality they are is amazing, they’ve built a vast universe and have wasted no time expanding it.

Not the usual KTF but excellent.

Galaxy’s Edge has always had the unique feeling of experiencing the story. Not reading it. You become a part of it. The insight into the Savages or Uplifted as they call themselves, is unique and in the end bone chilling. I loved seeing the beginning of the Legion as well. The Savage Wars continues and now next it’s all out war....
