Publisher's Summary

A price paid in blood   

“The Order of the Centurion is the highest award that can be bestowed upon an individual serving in, or with, the Legion. When such an individual displays exceptional valor in action against an enemy force, and uncommon loyalty and devotion to the Legion and its legionnaires, refusing to abandon post, mission, or brothers, even unto death, the Legion dutifully recognizes such courage with this award.” 

Tired of sitting out the war on Psydon in a mobile office lab, Legion Lieutenant Washam agrees to undertake a covert and unsanctioned mission with a band of Republic Recon Marines. Inserted deep behind enemy lines, the strike force uncovers a surprise key to ending a bitter war. Now they must navigate a hostile jungle teeming with murderous alien rebels, pushing themselves to the limits of their abilities, to get this vital intel to Legion Command - if they can survive that long. 

The Order of the Centurion is an all-new series of stand-alone military science fiction thrillers set in the Galaxy's Edge universe, ranging from the Savage Wars to the arrival of the Black Fleet. Each book features the legendary heroes of the Legion who forgot nothing in their earning of the Legion's highest honor.

The narrator is bad.

I love this series! I struggled through this book because I'm such a huge fan of the series! The narrator in this book puts me to sleep. Hes so monotone and the diffrence in voice is minimal from character to character. Love the story but it's a shame to hear a bland version of it. Maybe because its speaking mainly from a points point of view but it's not worth the sacrifice.

Another great galaxy's edge book!

Having read this following galaxy's edge book 4 the main character was very familiar and it answered a lot of questions I had following that book.

To start off the narrator was actually fantastic even though it wasn't the same guy who does the main series to deviation worked out quite well with the characters (most of them at least) and timeline being fairly distant. Overall a great performance.

The story was another action packed, seat of your pants adventure that iv come to love from these authors! The character are developed enough to make me feel almost as though many of them are my friends and family which made the emotional impact as strong as any book.

Another great story and another well written book

Mark Boyett is one of my favorite narrators to listen to , he makes the book really enjoyable. Overall the story while a separate series its in the galaxy of galaxies edge and it sort of gets backstory to the reason as to the way things are in the galaxy. I enjoyed the story and the characters they are all well developed and you get invested in them from the fool of a leader to the gritty marines to the poor bloke who comes to save their butts. Already listening to the next one!!

not fully encompassing

other than the main three, the characters are all very one note. there is no redemption or evolution for them. it has good action, but not enough character nuisance.

Vietnam War story on an alien planet

Great narration. Short, contained novel of a sci-fi military engagement. Vietnam vet story meets Starship Troopers. Good for YA to adult readers.

Not my normal cup of tea, but I know a few people I would recommend it to.

A good story

An entertaining story and performance. I enjoyed it very much, I'm normally not one for science fiction. Its a good story easy to follow, great to zone out to.

Don’t be thrown off by the new narrator

I’m as big a Bray fan boy as the next guy but Mark Boyett is a quality narrator and will do nothing to detract from the overall quality of the book. I do think his wheelhouse is on the slightly less serious end of the spectrum (he really shines in undying mercinaries) but his voice fits the genera well. Again he’s great and once you’ve adjusted you’ll love it.

The best one yet

This is it! The best Galaxy’s Edge story to date. Although many may be hesitant as RC Bray is not involved, Anspach and Cole picked the perfect narrator for this story and these characters. I can’t begin to describe how perfect of a performance this is by Mark Boyett. He captures the mood of every moment flawlessly. I am at a loss at just how unbelievably wonderful this story is.

A phenomenal new tale!

This new story is exceptionally well written. It makes a wonderful new addition to the Galaxy's Edge universe. It's a no-holds-barred story of adventure, war, and those that are burdened with its consequences. I couldn't stop listening. It grabs you and doesnt let you go until it forces you to not just hear the tale, but experience it.

I look forward to more stories like this from these authors. They've continued to churn out some of the best military sci-fi adventure I've ever had the privilege of reading. I highly recommend all of their work thus far.

Great Stand alone book so far

So i for some reason or another, i haven't started the galaxy's edge series, so i cant speak on how the narrator or story compare. As a stand alone book this feels sooooooo good. I felt like this is what Vietnam would be like, this whole book flew by. It added the right amount of detail 95% of the time, i felt each characters' actions were within reason. Everyone is a cold and calculating trained killer, but our character is a trained killer but hasn't had combat experience and that among other reasons makes him a real down to earth person that i could feel all the emotions that he felt 9/10. It's right up there with litrpg's "the land" series, i cant speak on the whole series but this book just felt..............real but please give this book a shot i want to give this book the acknowledgment that it deserves.

definitely a solid addition to the G.E. universe.

The narrator took some gettin used to. almost to the point I gave up on it, but by the end I was very happy I continued and felt it was a great listen.

Amazing!

This book is an incredible work of art from beginning to end. I was really worried given that they switched narrators from the original Galaxy's Edge series, but he nailed it! I think he's even better than RC Bray.

If you're a fan of sci-fi or military books, don't even think about it. Just purchase this book, put in your earbuds, and press play. You will not be disappointed and you will not regret it!

I thought this story was very good

I liked that this book took a character from Galaxy's Edge and expanded on what his back story was. Very good Story. The Narration was decent.

Great story, gives insight

The story was pretty awesome. You get attached to characters. You get some insight into a character in the main story of Galaxys Edge.

Honor and Sacrifice

The story of Washum is compelling. It really comes together in the epilogue and how Washum is important in the Galaxy Edge part V. it was a little different to hear a Galaxy Edge book without RC Bray but Mark Boyett grows on you as the story continues.
I feel the last chapter and epilogue sums up what many war experienced service members feel today about the brotherhood with each other.
