Summary

Galaxy's Edge, Part II contains Kill Team through to the end of Attack of Shadows

Legion Dark Ops calls upon Chhun, Wraith, and the survivors of Victory Company to form an elite Kill Team of legionnaires in the aftermath of the Battle of Kublar. Their mission is clear: find and eliminate those responsible for the Kublar disaster.

Standing between them and their objective are a maze of corrupt Republic officials, a spy on the verge of losing himself in deep cover, and the Zhee - a murderous species that will stop at nothing. But the biggest threat of all might be the truth they seek to uncover - a truth that could ignite a revolution. And engulf the galaxy in flames.

Fleets collide in this audiobook in a moment-by-moment account of tactics, heroism, sacrifice, and the start of the final war of the Republic. The stakes have never been higher - and it's winner takes all.

Galaxy's Edge, 2 Parts

Am I being harsh giving the storyline only 2 stars? I don't think so. I really wanted this book to be good and I hold out hope for the future. However this one fell short of the mark.

The book is in two parts. There are no plot spoilers here, but what we have is very much a game of two halves. The first problem I had was with the authors writing one of the lead characters in the second person and monotonously tell you that "you are Tom", when you blatantly are not. It just did not work for me. That, along with the ridiculous counter-contradictory dialogue (the best way I can describe it) just meant the whole thing rapidly became a tedious mess. I can well understand why another reviewer gave up at this point. I nearly did too. I was genuinely thankful for part 2.

The second part is, on the whole, pretty good. There are some elements that are disturbingly Star Wars-ish and the writers would do well to avoid that. But against that was the way the authors cleverly switched the points from which the battles were reported. Without doubt part 2 is better written, giving RC Bray far more to work with. Once again Bray brings his A game and steers us through.

Clearly we are set up for another book. Hopefully, when it arrives we will look back at Galaxy Edge 2 as the weak platform for an outstanding sequel.

Mad shoot em up. Too difficult to follow who was

Too difficult to follow who was shooting at what. I just wanted it to end. I could not make much sense of who the good guys were. It was too chaotic for my liking.
It won't stop me from getting book three though.
I hope it gets easier to understand.

Nah, Nope...No more. Tried parts 1 and 2.

I wanted to like these, as I'm desperate for a decent sci-fi series to get in to.
My hope was that book 2 would be an improvement on the 1st.
Sadly, I don't think that's the case.
Characters are so one dimensional they barely deserve names. The political scenario is simplistic and non-sensical.

in short; a list of names and a series of events.

Everything is coming together

Now i know the first audio book was a little tough to swallow just because it jumped from Kublar to the story of Prisma, Indelible 6, Tyrus Rex and so on without warning. it seemed really odd to me to.

However, i feel as if it was split like this on purpose rather than just plain bad writing. The characters each get introduced in unrelated story arcs in the first book then this one comes along, slowly weaving the 2 separate stories from the first.

Also i've read a few complaints that the first portion of this audio book was also difficult, especially the "You are Tom" part. To be honest, i think it worked well because it seemed like brain washing, constantly Tom this Tom that, you could feel the characters struggle, the fighting between his humanity and the mission. The personality clash and eventual blur of deep undercover work. At one point i swear he would've gone rogue.

As for the 2nd part of the Audiobook, well, i swear i could see the invasion play out in front of my eyes. The lies, the deceit, the political play all building to the end game. Also the combat, my goodness, you can feel the rush the soldiers are experiencing. I personally think this book would make for a bomb series or even an epic block buster movie though yeah at some point you can see some star wars-esque situations play out.

All in all i very much enjoyed the book, and as always RC Bray takes the cake. Peace out.

Superb SciFi!

The series just keeps getting better! R.C.Bray's narration is 1st class as always, bringing the story and characters to life. The Space Battle scenes rank among the best In Science Fiction and this is an absolute must for any fan!

Great but a bit of a story rip off

A good listen for all sci fi battle fans but the whole series is starting to be a little too much of a star wars rip off. I kind of like that this is what star wars should/could have been but a rip off none the less. Even some of the names are just rip offs but ever so slightly tweaked ie. Tri fighter instead of Tie fighter etc
Don't get me wrong though, it's still good and plenty of scope for the future story. Will continue on to the next one.

Narrated brilliantly by R.C Bray as always.

overall a bit better than 1

i want these to be good but im struggling book 3 was really good few people seem to not like the "you are tom" section but i enjoyded it only down fall is that it was too short and fairly basic
the story with chunn and wraith is made a lot clearer and you need this book i think to make any sense of part 1

the second half was just ok the battle was descriptive but some sequences were so short they were barely worth mentioning, the jumping around in time made it hard to follow who was winning and even harder to care.
it read more like a bullet point synopsis of a history book that gave you the gist but not much else.

im continuing on but i have to say with all the hype around this series i thought it would be better

Not sure what happened here.

The first book was excellent. It left me really wanting to know what happened next. Well, scratch the first half of this book. It's a good part of the story, and fairly well written for what it is, but it feels misplaced. It fills in some backstory at least. The second half of the book should have been great, but it was a plodding half-hearted let down to say the least. There isn't much to like about the second half of the book. We're introduced to laughably stereotypical new characters (captain Vampa (not sure if I spelled that one right... can't find an external reference and I don't have a print copy) is absolutely cringe-worthy). And even the few bits following Exo, which should be the climax of a major story arc, seem anticlimactic.

I'm still gonna stick with it though.

Good, but got tedious.

So, it may be unfair to compare books to previous ones in the series, but in my opinion these Part II books just did not live up to Part I Book 2. Although Book 3 had some good moments with the original crew, when the narration was about Tom, "You are Tom", I physically began to cringe. Although it filled in some important details, I did not like that form of storytelling at all. And then Book 4 was pretty much just any overly detailed telling of a space battle. Although Bray did his best to keep it entertaining, in the end it was just too long and drawn out and I tended to completely zone out. And then, one of the best things to happen in the whole book was covered by a small reference in the Epilogue with no excruciating detail.

I hope Part III is more like Book 2 of Part I. I want more Pirates, Princesses, Aliens, A.I.s, Hackers and Robots.

Listen carefully

I enjoyed part 1 and 2 of Galaxy’s Edge, but I find myself having to relisten to them both bc I get lost when they jump around time and sides of the battle and different characters. Granted I’m usually multitasking while listening, but I don’t mind listening to it twice bc I catch nuggets I didn’t the first time

Good military/sci-fi series

Good on the military side good on the science fiction side. Can't go wrong with RC Bray. I appreciated commonalities with current conflicts. it feels like the author purposely made the connections.

Disappointingly ridiculous space combat.

The authors need to keep the military tactics on the ground and in small squad actions. Scientifically advanced cultures with FTL and/or wormhole capabilities aren't going to conduct WW2 era battles with simplistic weapon systems. If you think Star Wars depicts realistic space battles, and that space ships need wings and can bank hard, pull up, etc., then you might find this really exciting. Otherwise, you will probably spend most of this book rolling your eyes. I had to relisten to The Expanse series to cleanse my palette.

Even better

I didn't think Jason and Nick could possibly top the first GE audiobook, but man, Part 2 is spectacular. I'm looking for stuff to do outside so I can keep listening. If you liked the first one, you'll love this. If you didn't like the first one, go back and listen to it again. I can't wait until this is on Netflix.

Two books for the price of one!

The second installment of this great series is even better than the first. Having books 3-4 in one audio book is great! R.C. Bray does an excellent job!

KTF... loved it

So after listening to book 2, I went back to listen to the first book and then again listen to second book. The way that the 2 books are now integrated, total hooked me. I am a big Star Wars fan and these two book are now very very close to my most loved Star Wars books (Thrawn).
R.C. Bray voice feels so "on point". I feel I now need to look at other books that he has narrated. And i now need so start looking at military/war books as these books may have made me a fan.
