Summary

They all want the Dragon dead. 

The Dragon was trained from his youth to operate as a lethal killing machine. He has tangled with crime lords, dangerous insurgents, even Nether Ops...and none of these forces has been able to bring the elusive warrior to heel. 

Enter the notorious bounty hunter Tyrus Rechs. 

Rechs takes on the job as a favor to an old Savage Wars buddy. Only Rechs isn’t out to kill the Dragon - his mission is to save the kid’s life. 

Unless the Dragon kills Rechs first.

OK but not as good as Book 1

The book was enjoyable and a good listen, but not a gripping as book 1, Not really sure how much more can be written about Rex as it is getting stale now.

Fairly good stand alone

good story involving tyrus rex.

left me a little confused, it was hard to see the point of it in the end, you can see some of it in part 5 and having read this it makes a little sense but overall its probably just a good standalone

Rex by name and by nature.

Yes! I know this is kinda-like Star Wars. But! By no means is it a Star Wars wannabe. I see it as duality with some similar characters, but more mature, gritty and delivered with such narrator excellence that I have no trouble distinguishing the two. Went straight into this after Medusa and wasn`t disappointed in any shape or form.

Just superb

The follow on from requiem for medusa. Just as good and maybe even better. Really a stand alone story in its own right with call backs to book 1 but not necessarily having needed to have read. 2 great books in every way

Best of Galaxy's Edge

Requiem for Medusa and Chasing the Dragon are unequivocally the two best prequels in Anspach and Cole's outstanding Galaxy's Edge series.
What makes them so outstanding? Four things:
1. Rex is the main protagonist in both novels;
2. Both stories have captivating and complex plot lines, and they're also chock-full of brutal action scenes;
3. Anspach and Cole's writing is exceptional, offering vivid descriptions of people and planets along the galactic ring, and providing the characters with multidimensional and dynamic personalities;
4. Ray Porter's narration is truly superb.
(IMO, Porter and Bray are the only two narrators capable of hopping in to properly narrate any given story in Galaxy's Edge, without either butchering the voices primary characters or disrupting the overall flow of the story.)
Both Requiem for Medusa and Chasing the Dragon have rightfully earned my highest recommendation. Bravo!

Action packed from start to finish. Strap in for another tale in the galaxy centered around Tyrus Rex and his pursuit of the mysterious bounty "The Dragon". Is the Dragon friend, foe, or just another bounty for Tyrus to cash in on. Find out in this installment in the Galaxys Edge series.

okay story with great performance

Pretty much a stand alone story about Tyrus Rex and his adventures in days past. Plenty of action and adventure but in the end the point to it all is hard to find. Skip it or listen to it, won't make much difference to appreciating the original series any more or less.

Rechs rides again

Another fantastic Rechs adventure, as he chases down a man so dangerous he has knocked Rechs off his perch as the galaxy's most wanted. But who is "The Dragon" and what terrible secrets does he know? As Rechs chases down leads to find the dragon, the question becomes Will Rechs destroy the dragon, or try to save him?

Probably my favorite book in this Universe.

Obviously you need to read Requiem for Medusa first, but Do. Not. Skip. This. Book. It's very good.

T Rex never disappoints

Just more of what we've come to expect. The galaxy is a dumpster fire burning out of control.
