Summary

She Chose the Hardest Way

The daughter of a Legion war hero, fighting was in Andien Broxin's blood. But the battles Republic marines face on strange and alien worlds are a far cry from the vaunted, brutal, no-holds-barred conflicts fought at the edge of the galaxy by the elite legionnaires. 

Until a devastating war erupts right in the Republic’s stellar backyard. 

Newly stationed on a mid-core planet being harassed by terrorist revolutionaries, Andien and her fellow “hullbusters” find themselves right in the middle of a desperate fight for survival. All their training, standards, discipline - all the hard paths - have led to this. If she and her fellow marines are to come out of this alive, Andien will have to find out who she truly is...and what she can become. 

Best-selling military science fiction author Jason Anspach and USMC/US Army veteran Michelle C. Meyers explore the rigors of combat, survival, and the human will in this edge-of-your-seat account set in the Galaxy’s Edge universe.

Brilliant story, worse Scottish accent ever!!

I love the Galaxy Edge Universe, I was looking forward to this one. The one thing that grated was her bad, awful attempt at Alec Owen's Scottish accent, it sounded Irish, East European and some other previously unheard of accent.
please Narrators, if you can't do a passable accent, Please don't do one at all!!

Great addition

To the GE stable of books, really enjoyed this book and the narration was good except for the accent given to Owens! that was achingly painful to listen to

Loved this story, but:

this was a powerful story of a glimpse into wartime military life... Absolutely loved the premise.. I could. However, not get over the botched reading of the word corpsman. I'm sorry to say it brought me back to the reality that the reader was not a marine or a soldier because of it. I often was immersed in the imagery and feeling of the moment and then, there it is, "corpSman" and it messed it all up for me.

Good back story

I liked her back story. However the narrator's pronunciation of Corpsman is wrong. The "s" is silent along with the "p" which she got correct. ie, like in the Marine Corps. It made my ears cringe every time, only because I am a retired US Navy Hospital Corpsman.

Fairly uninteresting

I guess one of my pet peeves is horrible accents and narrators that should not attempt something they suck at. The example would be this narration of a character who is supposed to be Scottish? I am guessing because it fades in and out of a bad Irish to a bad Scottish accent. Other than that, the book was kinda boring. I could not get past the first chapter. No wonder it was free...

Forgot Nothing

Ok. I’m biased. I’m absolutely in love with this universe. Galaxy’s Edge is amazing. I wasn’t expecting too much from a free book....but damn this novella is kellhorned good. This universe keeps getting better and better and Andinee and her Hullbusters make another fine addition.

Freaking Loved This Book

This book takes an honest look at what it means for a woman to attempt to fight/train among elite soldiers, and doesn't cut corners. As a woman, I appreciate the realism of the struggle. Loved the characters, story, and the narrator's performance. Top marks, everyone!

Galaxies Edge prequel novella to GI Jane book?

Decent stand alone novella in the Galaxies Edge universe. I’ve only heard a few of the books and they range a bit from extreme military sci-fi to Star Wars fantasy action. This one landed fully on the military sci-fi end. Other than taking place on another planet and referencing aliens, this could easily have been told as a modern day earth military piece.

The story follows marine Major Andien Broxin through the excellent narration of Khristine Hvam. This is the first military book I’ve heard her narrate and I was surprised at how well I took to it, especially since I sometimes find her voice a bit nasal. I liked her accent for the supporting character of Legionaire Lt. Owens. I may need to go back and check out more of the GE books; if Lt. Owens is in them, I’d like to see more of his story too. Or, since this could be a short prequel setting up Andien’s future with the Legionaires, perhaps this bodes well for a full length book with the both of them- not as a romance, mind you. I quite liked that Andien was a woman, and the story accounted for that... while not using her gender for some sort of romance plot line.

Fans will enjoy the hallmark Legionnaires and their mythical abilities, along with the inside catchphrases and jokes that bond listeners in patriotism and battle pride (KTF!). I liked that, compared to some of the others in the GE series, this one contained military action without going overboard on the politics, point vs enlisted commentary, or military porn vibe. Yes, it’s always a bit of a cheat to create future cuss words to get around current slang, but the story was more enjoyable without a machine gunning of Fx and other profanity throughout.

The ratio of action to story worked well for me, except for the slightly overlong political negotiation piece. Overall a solid and diverting free military action story, with a sci-fi side to boot.

9/10 should read

I love this book, it hit me and all my sweet spot. The only reason I didn’t give it a 10 out of 10 was the miss pronunciation of the word Corpsman. The “S” is silent

Great back story

An excellent back story for two characters in the main series. I'm excited to see what comes next in this side series and how it ties in with future novels!

Only complaint I have has pronunciation of a species that seems to be a running gag at this point with all the different ways it has been pronounced by all the narrators.

Well done for what it is

Life in the times story of a Major in the (galactic) Marines Corps and unanticipated rise as female to elite special forces. She has balls and the mindset to to go with it.
