Summary

The galaxy follows a logical structure.

Legion Dark Operator Kel Turner believed that.

To know the order of battle and how an enemy unit was organized was to know its purpose and how to destroy it. That logic existed down to the smallest scale, down to what made up life itself. To know a molecule’s structure was to know its function - they were one and the same. It was no different for Kel. He was Dark Ops and Dark Ops was him. Down to his last cell and very soul.

But the covert action arm of the Legion is changing. And so is he. And if Dark Ops is no longer the same, how could Kel be Kel?

From fighting a gray war against a cunning adversary bent on genocide, to slogging through a jungle hell full of rabid dog-men, Kel won't stop until the mission is complete. Kel was the mission. But if the day comes when there would no longer be a Dark Ops for Kel, what would his mission be then?

Who would he become?

Continuation of a sub par story and narration

I swear I’ve never heard such an awkward use of first names and “brother”. Just a lot of missed attempts at comedy, weird/awkward/obnoxiously sensitive conversations between what are supposed to be bad asses. I swore never to listen to another one of these in the series 2 books ago, but I love pretty much every other book but this series and that garbage ham fisted free one with the marine girl. Just a bunch of touchy feely crap, subpar story, obnoxiously detailed workouts, and just basically putting a bunch of crap in there just to say “hey I am/was a super friend or seal or whatever in real life”. The most important thing that really makes me consider this series a failure is a) the narrator is garbage and b) it 100% misses the heart and soul of Anspach and coles writing together. I get amped up and intrigued with their content. Love it, even savage 2 kept me intrigued and engaged. DX that narrator and Anspach and Cole please edit down doc spears work to be in the spirit of your universe rather than a blow by blow of a sensitive operators tickle fights. Also delete all of the “brother’s” and “operators”. Ridiculous.

Hey Doc, I hope you read your reviews

In many ways this was your best book. I hope this isn’t the end of the series? I always find the poetry in action books like yours to be really weak to poor. The poem you ended this one with was masterful. Very well done.

I look forward to reading more of your work. These five have been reflective. The search for the soul of the warrior. I think they add much to the Galaxy’s Edge universe. I’ve loved them.

Another Stunner!

I'd expect no less from the tactically brilliant mind of Doc Spears. Tie in the Galaxy's Edge universe and you have a winning combo. the style of combat writing is superb, and the descriptions of events are such that you feel like you are there. Outstanding job again!

Eh...

The premise of the stories are interesting enough to make me want to hear how they end. However the writing is done in a way that just isn’t natural. People just don’t talk like they do in the book. This could be in part due to the narrator, the only way I can deal with the cadence of this narrator is to put the book at 1.5 speed. He is the only narrator I do this with.

Suggestions:
1. Work on making the characters talk more naturally, it will make them feel more human.
2. Consider a new narrator, the current one has poor pacing and makes all the characters sound like teenagers not hardened troops.
3. Consider this as an anthology series with new Dark Operators each book. It would build out the universe more and give greater perspective.

Never stop these

Precision and depth. Emotional rawness and substance. The world of Galaxy’s Edge grows larger and more meaningful with this Kel Turner story. Please keep making these evocative stories!

I absolutely love this series.

It took a while for the train to leave the ststion, I will say that. Once it got rolling though, i think this might be a new favorite series in the Legionaire universe!

Great story

Loved the book. it was a little hard to get into at first since Kel was on a new team with new ppl but it's worth getting past that part and you'll see why.

as for all the negative coments regarding the use of the word "brother" and first names, you've obviously never been on a "team" or small task force, thats common place so get over it.

the last chapter pulled at the heart strings of this OIF Vet. Really good story.

I hope there is next book.

I think this was the best rex books.

wish they could turn out more books faster. I go through 5 books in ten days. I also don't like series under 5 books. takes to long for next to come out. so it is good for writers to hold back a little and get a season done like in tv. I watch whole season on Internet. might have to wait a year but don't have to stay tuned till next week

Best of The DO Series

The DO series just got better and better and Stephen Dexter seemed to get better and better as a narrator.
These books definitely need to be "read" in order. There really isn't a bad book in the GE universe and I recommend every one of them.
