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

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.

A breath of fresh air

An exciting forray into a distant future with interesting characters and some really fun AIs. This was exactly the type of book I was looking for. Chaney and Anspach are great together, their voices made even more incredible by RC Bray's. I hope there are sequels to this, because this is a universe I want to explore even more.

How long before the next book?

I love the story and R. C. Bray's narration is spot on! The premise has a few unexpected twists and turns for space opera, which I liked. The narration had a lot of variety which really helps to keep the many characters separated. Over all, I repeat, how long before the next book?

Insanely good

I just want to say that I really liked this. The characters, the world, the story. It's everything I look for in military scifi. The narration was stellar, too. Gonna keep my eye on these guys in the future.

Loved it

add Brody to the list of best all time characters with Skippy. I loved the book and narration. I'm a big Galaxies Edge fan too. Wayward Galaxy was right there for entertainment value and I wish the next 3 or 4 were already out. I demand more from all three series.

More than I wanted

Not what I expected, but I am looking forward to the next installment .Wonderfully written and Narrated, RC Bray does his usual fine work and we as listeners are lucky to have him. Jason Anspach and JN Chaney have put together a unique world where life is gritty yet has possibility for growth. Keep up the good work, all of you!

Yes!! Bring on book 2!! Did you start writing it yet??

This was tremendous fun! Be prepared because once you’re hooked you won’t want to put it down. I am bleary eyed from lack of sleep. I couldn’t stop listening. Of course my job got in the way some. The story isn’t the same ole same ole Sci fi. RC Bray is as always the best at narrating and adding his special kind of vocal mojo. I highly recommend this book and yes I would love a book 2 and then some.

Another hit!!!

Yet another in a long string of hits for Chaney. I've been a fan of his since the Amber Project and then Renegade Star. He's continued to evolve and produce higher and higher quality stuff. This is no different. The story is engaging and the narration is absolutely nuts. I've only heard RC Bray in Ruins of the Galaxy before and I loved what he did there. This is equally good. Extremely good, in fact! I hope they do more of these in the future!

mediocre experience.

Performance is superb as always you can expect from RC Bray, the story feels rushed , repetitive, charachters lack depth, poorly thought through details or lack there of.
a mediocre book.
