Publisher's Summary

The future isn’t what they expected.

A company of Army Rangers is sent on an interstellar colony ship to secure a foothold on a dangerous, alien planet through violence of action. Leaving behind a warring Earth flung headfirst into a conflict of mutual assured destruction, the Rangers and the accompanying crew of first colonists are guided on a 40-year journey by an unprecedented artificial intelligence.

But when they emerge from the frigid embrace of cryosleep, they awake to a nightmare, finding themselves greeted by the same ruthless enemy that brought about the ruin of Earth. Alone on a dangerous, alien planet and with no hope of rescue or relief, the military colonists are forced to finish the war they thought they’d left behind. And in an unknown galaxy, friends and enemies alike prove to be much more than they seem.

Wayward Galaxy is an explosive military science-fiction adventure featuring defective AIs, valorous soldiers, a brilliant scientist, and gritty combat written by Jason Anspach (Associated Press best seller and cocreator of Galaxy’s Edge) and J.N. Chaney (USA Today best seller and author of the Renegade series).

strong start!!

really enjoyed the action, the world and the comedy - got me to lol a few times. (Fans of Skippy or hitchhikers Marvin will find a friend in this story)

Sure - there isn’t much that is epic as the K.T.F of Galaxy’s Edge but this here book gives it a run for its money

high reccos for sci military and space opera fans

It's just a war story in space.

Performance is OKAY but it's a bit cringy and hard to tell characters apart with the reader constantly forcing a gruff gravely voice that is very obviously not natural. Kinda distracting.

If you super love military action stories, this might be more for you. There really isn't a whole lot of sci-fi beyond just the setting. This same story could have been told set in Iraq and it wou'dn't have taken much of a re-write. Struggling to finish it, as the actual plot is advancing VERY slowly in between long sequences of "action" and I find myself constantly wishing they'd get to the point, instead of being pulled in and intrigued. The gun fights feel more like a distraction from the real story.

Rah Rah 'muricah

Narrator saved this story! Writing was acceptable, pace was fine. The rampant USA ultra-patriotism was actually sickening :(

Fantastic!

Absolutely great! Kept me wanting more from both author and narrator! If you are looking for a great book about the future, A.I or the struggles it takes to survive then this is the book for you! Plus it's got R.C Bray as the narrator and that's a big thumbs up on its own.

Great book

This book feels like a great start to a series, at some points I was a bit "But... Why?" however, this is more so from me being jaded and hyper-critical.

Though at of the entire book, there is one character that stands out, though I won't spoil the story, but if you listen to the book, you will figure it out pretty quickly. A bit one dimensional, but hilarious.

Less fighting and more story please

An interesting premise but it seemed like half of the story is taken up with fighting. Also, it is very jingoistic: lots of good old USA versus the bad Commies. Please.... let's have more nuance. Excellent narration though.

Far too racist

Great narrator, the story had potential but too much, 'GO AMRICA!' for my taste.
