Publisher's Summary

The scum hiding deep inside the Reach out along galaxy's edge thought they could kill her and not pay the price. For years these hardened killers have run roughshod over the lawless worlds where Republic justice is never as fast as the blaster in your hand and where double-crosses and death are a part of every deal. They thought this time would be no different. 

They were wrong. 

This time, the Guild sent the legendary bounty hunter Tyrus Rechs. 

As the infamous Rechs pursues the men who murdered his colleague, he's hell-bent on justice, heedless of the trail of destruction he leaves across ruined worlds and fantastic gambling meccas alike. Because for Rechs, this isn't just another Guild contract...it's personal.

Good story but lacking depth

I enjoyed the story and relished in the action but this book didn’t deliver on any deep characterization. All the other books of Galaxy’s edge all have action and adventure but where they really shine is in the emotional characterization we see in the protagonist. The character of Tyrus Rechs is as emotional as a boulder and while that fits the character it is a little unfulfilling. I would like to see some more depth from Tyrus.

Tyrus Rechs. The man is an enigma and Requiem delivers more pieces of the puzzle. It's all coming together now. I never thought that a bounty hunters' love story can be so hauntingly and as another reviewer said - achingly - beautiful.

There is plenty of fighting here, but I love it how the blaster fire is blended with melancholy of loss. I read the description of the book and it was like "ok cool!" I listened to the book and it's like "oh wow, stick that dagger in my heart again, that was beautiful..." I did not expect this. By now I know the guys are amazing at combat narrative so I'm quite stunned at the skillful delivery of this emotional tragedy. The very final dialog got my face drenched in tears.

This is one of the best books by this author team and the narrator brought it home.

A must read for any Galaxy’s Edge fans!

A lot of the anthology books have been hit or miss, with the stories ranging from the more traditional space opera styles of yesteryears, or the military science fiction that’s also top notch. This book manages to mesh action and intricate story telling in a way that’s both exhilarating and extremely engrossing.

Ray Porter’s portrayal of Tyrus Rechs helps humanise the man within the mask, whereas the main series and Imperator had us believe that Rechs was a stone-cold man, as Rechs rightfully wanted them to think, Ray Porter’s take on Rechs’ mannerisms and internal dialogue made Rechs feel relatable.

Overall, a great story and great performance.

The Man, The Myth, The Legend--Tyrus Rechs

The story is haunting, as to be expected with the life of Tyrus. Not to give too much away, but we see the kinder, gentler side of the famed bounty hunter before he fell apart. The story is achingly beautiful even while being packed with the gunslinging action we've come to expect from GE. Loved it!

Rechs VS the universe!

WOW. Action packed, non stop violence, and just enough tragedy to humanise Rechs for the first time. When an old friend is killed, The T-Rex of the legion must track down her killers on a seedy space station known for violence and vice. A fantastic story.

what a punchline!

for me, the story was great, but the epilogue really made the book. the story carries a dark heavy tone until the end... not spoiling it. i think this is my favorite galaxy's edge book because of the epilogue! maybe it was the story, maybe it was the presentation? it just worked!

well done!

I was hoping for more back story of the savage wars, but thats in another book. TRex is after he left the legion and before the events of season 1 of Galaxy's Edge. This was an epic story with a fitting ending.
