Summary

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.

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!

Impressed

It was very interesting to listen. I liked the story being told from different person perspective and detailed timing of events, now I how long the space battle takes time.
Maybe slightly to much detail for somebody who's first language is not English, but replay button helped tackle this slight "issue".

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.

Outstanding. Game of thrones meets star wars

book 1 set the scene and though the jumping in story time line was challenging initially it worked and came together in book 2. can't wait to listen to book 3 now. as ever narration was excellent and made this book come to life - thank you R.C.

Building the story but far too much padding!

I will keep this brief.
You will be picking this off the back of part 1 and wanting to see where it goes next.
Suffice to say you will finish this wanting to do the same but with a sense of frustration.
This part of the story arc could have been covered in a few chapters but instead it is stretched out over 2 books.
I hope part 3 gets back on track.

Mark 'em, load 'em and get ready to chew 'em up.

Such fantastic value for a credit: two full and excellent novels, both standalone but with interconnected aspects between these and the previous stories. Both are action packed, but the second, in particular, never stops as space battle rages through the galaxy and the reader is carried from ship to ship, sides both claiming the right to victory when seen through the eyes of the players. This reader enjoys military action but usually only in proportion to a non action ongoing story. But this book was different : so well written, it held attention from the first pages to the ending. The reader is swirled through the desperate engagements, political deceptions, and hopes and fears of the various protagonists, sympathies tugged from one to another. Phenomenal.

The preceding story is more planet bound, face to face action as the few survivors of Victory company following the disaster that was Kubbar, are recruited to Black Ops, and we are introduced to the whisper of a rumour that was Nether Ops, and a man named Tom.
The characterisations are excellent, with real life, three dimensional people living, dying, laughing, remembering, hurting, fighting and bleeding across the pages. Narrator, A.C.Bray brings everything even more to life with his excellent performance, with well modulated and paced text reading and individually appropriate voices for every protagonist. The perfect symbiosis of narrator and authors' text.
It is for stories like this, there should be an extra super star rating. And for anyone who enjoys intelligent and immaginative military space opera, this is a must read book.

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.

On Par with Book 1.

I love the way R.C. Bray does this series, he is a master of audiobook characters.
I was skeptical about this series after the way the first book ended, but now I'm all in. I wonder what would have happened if General Rex had aligned with the Galaxy's ultimate baddy?
The similarities between this and the most successful sci-fi franchise (well until the last spin off prequel movie that is) are present but honestly - that is to be expected. I mean the original trilogy was massively popular and influential. This story goes it's own ways to break from the typical copycat format. there is enough influence to evoke nostalgia yet enough grit and fundamental differences to make it very much it's own animal. The military references and the quirky parts that make this series different is what makes it special. The characters are interesting and well done by R.C. Bray and the authors should never ever let anyone else read this series, not only for continuity, but for pure entertainment value.
I like how these books are separated into two different times in the republic. There isn't just a fly by pants seat approach to this story that goes on forever like some other titles - just more and more and more to continue the series and it's success, you get the impression that the authors have a clear and interesting storyline here.

I can't wait for the next installment.

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.

Grabs hold and doesn't let go

As always, Bray does an outstanding job in voicing and pacing. He brings the tension and urgency needed for Kill Team, but then works magic as he hops from one scene to the next in the frenetic battle sequences in Attack of Shadows.

This is an excellent book to listen to while you’re on your morning commute. I found myself lingering in the truck for several minutes so that I could get to the end of a chapter.

If you’re a fan of military science fiction that moves at the speed of light, you’ll enjoy Galaxy’s Edge, Part II.

Great, but no Wraith or Chhun?

Seriously, this was a great addition to the series but what happened to Wraith or Chhun? Obviously they are the ones who attacked the shipyard and we will get the details in the next one but at least let’s see some of them.

The story continues with a very tightly woven story. Lots of connections made with plot threads from the first audio book.

Another outstanding performance by Bray!

A great second book that helped clarify a few plot points and story shifts that had confused me. Great action sequences throughout, brought to life by R.C. Bray.

Looking forward to the next in the series!
