Brody is awesome

This is a really good sifi/action book. Rc bray nocks the narration out of the park. Anspach and Chaney have came up with some great characters. Looks forward to the next book in the series.

Disapointed

Enjoyed the first two. this one was all over the place. Difficult to follow the storyline. Even RC Bray couldn't save this one although he did an admirable job with what he had.

Weak storyline

The book lost its way and felt rushed. The extended drama and war scenes gave a sense of getting something published for a payday. Disapointing.

One long battle not much of a story

I have read first 3 books in Wayward Galaxy. I am out. Last book was nothing but one long battle description with very little by the way of plot or character development. Only so many times I can hear "I still got it" before I say no you don't. If you read the books you will get that reference.

Great universe and story. Too heavy on combat descriptions

Another great chapter in the Wayward Galaxy series. Characters are enjoyable and the overall plot is intriguing. However, this book in particular, is spending way too much time describing combat and engagements at the expense of developing the story and plot.

As if anyone needs to ask.

Yes, as always the Anspach, Chaney and Bray trifecta take the gold. They might have even stolen the silver and bronze too on their way out, leaving nothing for the competition. Can't wait for the audio for book 4.

Unusually mediocre for both authors & series

I'm definitely a fan of this series & both authors, and even more than those, Lord Bray. he is my go to narrator, the top of my mount Rushmore. So why is a 4 star rating starting off with this caveat? Because the start of this series (first 2 audiobooks) was one of the best starts to any series I've heard...a very unique storyline and world built! And with Lord Bray at the controls? How could it go wrong?

Well "wrong" isn't exactly it. Perhaps the series & authors Anspach & Chaney are a victim of their own success? Honestly I've never read/heard a series with either of them individually...always with a co-author. But I've yet to find a series that I disliked that they've been a part of. Admittedly I have with Lord Bray (he has done so many series), but NOT bc of him...in fact his voice narration helped the few he has done that I didn't care for. But ultimately it was a fail due to the author (I won't name names bc thats not the point here...just a backdrop for my slight criticism of this book 3) and what he put in his books that Bray has done.

Here was my issue...the action was hard to follow. I often found myself rewinding just to figure out WTH is going on. And half the time I did that I still couldn't figure it out. By this time I am veteran of audiobooks, having downloaded over 200 and listened to over 100 to date (yes I have a long list of "to get to" someday). Usually with any series I like, it only gets better with each successive book thats released. Very rarely does it go backwards. To date only 1 series that Bray did was that the case for me (other than the 1 author he teams up with often that I actually despise...will not patronize someone who constantly attacks a large segment of the real world population in the name of wokeism)...and I dont mind naming the 1 series Bray did to give an example of a series that started off SO GOOD...but in book 2 of that series, for me, got worse and worse: Titanborn. Awesome premise, but fundamentally shifted in book 2 and never got back what was so good to start that series (imho).

So i am hoping this series doesn't suffer that same fate. I dont think it will. The underlying premise of this series is good. Titanborn the fundamentals of the story shifted drastically in book 2 and got worse thru the rest of the series for me. Wayward Galaxy may be a victim of awesomeness set up in book 1 and continued to book 2...of that great success and also the authors paired with Lord Bray.

But for me, Its just odd...this one didn't flow like the previous 2...action wasn't clear about half of the book...pfren times names were dropped into the book and often some names sounded too similar to each other and hard to follow that too.. Overall it was hard to follow the fringe characters very well. The execution of the overall story was the issue for me and it made the sequence of events in this book difficult to follow and enjoy. I am hoping whatever happened in this book can be rectified with book 4. Hopefully the authors take this mild criticism to heart and not become bitter by my comments or other's. Why would I spend over 20 minutes writing this out of my busy day of that wasn't the goal I had in mind? I WANT to like this series and WANT it to succeed...I WANT both author's track record and success to grow, as I do for Lord Bray too. Especially for Mr. Chaney...since he is the co-author with my favorite author at this time, Christopher Hopper, for the Ruins series (Galaxy & Earth series alike)...

Yes...I want their mantra to match Brody's...

I ST-ST-STILLLL GOT IT!!

Amazing and captivating

I just listened to book 1,2 and 3 in 3 days because it is a story that actually kept my attention. I also believe this is one of the best narrators in the business he can make even the dull entertaining this however is written very well.

Another great one. little hard to follow sometimes

it's the third book so it goes without saying I'm still loving this series.

wanted to point out the difficulty in following some of the longer combat portions though. The jumping from one character to another along with the high-speed flurry of information leaves me regularly going "wait who is this and where are they?".

I'm not certain what cues could be added make that easier to follow but damn could I use some. still, excellent series.

Good as usual, but jumpy

I love this series and the story is fantastic,


HOWEVER

I had a hard time following who was where in this book, locations seemed to jump quickly and continuously and it was much harder to paint a mental picture as to who was where and what it looked like where they were. between the constant name changing of locations by the factions and people the story trying to trick the reader and charters as to what was happening it was harder to follow and I felt lost too much for comfort. Again excellent story, but perhaps give a little grounding to the reader more when action like this is pumped out so many chapters straight, the pace was incredible and really made you feel rush the rangers went into, but as a listener it became hard to keep up, maybe just me, other two books I had no issues, this one is much faster pace. Love it love it love it

Good as per the usual

The narration, the story, the Brody, all are excellent. If you aren’t a fan of the series it’s either because you are way to serious in your normal life or you’re a troop that’s never been a part of a two way shooting range and you can’t enjoy the gallows humor of real life.

a fun story

This series is like 70% battle, 20% explaining technology and 10% character stuff. But I've read 3 of them already and I guess I'll have to keep going with them. The narrator is excellent. He really differentiates the characters and can do all kinds of accents. I actually prefer the audiobook to the ebook format with this series.
