Summary

Every disaster brings an opportunity.

Goth Sullus and his empire have fallen.  

With the Legion and the rest of the galaxy watching from the still-smoldering galactic core, Carter, a former legionnaire turned private contractor, and Jack Bowie, a Navy spy with nowhere left to turn, sign up to work for an enterprising private contractor looking to make a statement on the planet Kublar.

Plans are in motion dating back to the Savage Wars, and as the galaxy rushes to fill in the vacuum created by the fall of the Imperial Republic, the bodies are hitting the floor.  

But every plan has a reckoning…

Takeover is the thrilling aftermath of the final, desperate execution of Article Nineteen and the looming rebirth of the Legion and the galaxy itself as Galaxy’s Edge: Season Two begins!

just Ok

clearly just another build up story laying the ground for the rest of season 2 , didn't really make sense until the end.
goth sullas seems to have been replaced fairly quickly . good story though a bit drawn out in places and takes a bit long to get to the point. clearly being based on the middle east with the Muslims playing the part of the ghee but we got that for a while now and again its very pro american veteran/military type of writing. think authors are trying to hard to base it on recent conflicts and yet make it original but still borrow from star wars, LOTR and even Peter Pan through out the series, hope the next book is better

Producers need to do better when there is a change of narrator in a long running series, Ray Porter is good enough but they all should have at least checked RC Brays Pronunciation seeing as he has done 5 parts already bit annoying and amaturish..,if thats even a word!lol when you hear chhu-hooon

Disappointing start to season 2

Suffered through the first 5 chapters and couldn't continue. Narrator is so dull and sounds thoroughly uninterested but mostly the story has failed to captivate me.
Very disappointed as the season 1 titles are all fantastic and R C Bray narrated it brilliantly

Great continuation

I love Galaxy’s Edge books and read the Takeover series last year in parts but listening made it so much better, I am not a huge fan of Ray Porter and can’t listen to him narrating the Tyrus Rechs books past the first chapter, he has improved (or my standards have dropped) I would advise him to listen to the RC Bray GE books so he doesn’t not continue his bastardisation of the characters names

An excellent start to Season 2 of Galaxy's Edge

Takeover is set in the aftermath of the death of Goth Sullus and the Republic. The stories of Carter, a former Legionnaire, and Bowie, a former spy, intertwine as their new employer tries to wrest control of Kublar from what’s left of Republic forces.

Carter’s story is pure military fiction. Raids, battles, and gunfights burn through his tale. Any reader who enjoys run-and-gun fiction will get their money’s worth just from Carter.

The plot of Bowie’s exploits is more understated, but just as riveting. This is pure cloak-and-dagger storytelling, and it’s done masterfully. There’s a lot of action here, but it’s short and violent when compared to Carter’s firehose of non-stop combat.

Both stories are done by masters of the art. The plots flow beautifully, and I found myself glued to Takeover as Ray Porter read it to me. His narration was spot on, changing tone and cadence when switching between the two plot lines.

If you’ve enjoyed the first season of Galaxy’s Edge, you’ll love Takeover’s introduction to Season Two.

Great kickoff to season 2 with one slight

I will say I loved this book and could not put it down. I ate this story up and can not wait for more.

Ray Porter’s acting was stellar as usual as well.

My only slight misgiving is that I was slightly disappointed to see that Ray Porter didn’t apparently have the chance to listen to the way RC Bray pronounces Chhun’s name or how Bray voiced a certain character that returns for a cameo from the first season. I was hoping he would be given samples to maintain some continuity of characters between the performances, but I assume this was a timetable thing.

That said Porter’s work is stellar as usual and I can not WAIT for more!

What a great ride we are getting on again

Jason and Nick have done it again!

This book is starting us off on another great ride with season 2 of Galaxys Edge. More action, more KTF, and intrigue.

I love Ray Porters work and he does a great job reading a lot of the side stories in GE. My only complaint is that I do not know if he listened to RC Brays reading of season 1 and chose to pronounce some characters name drastically differently than what the community accepts as the standard pronunciation.

What happened???!!?!

I guess I'm an outlier here, because this book is some of the most overtly racist and Islamophobic garbage-disguised-as-scifi that I've ever seen. It's clear that the "donks" are the "wink wink, nudge nudge" analogue for Muslims, while the Kublarans are meant to represent Africans, and the authors didn't miss a single derogatory stereotype for either demographic. I've loved all the GE books (that I've listened to) right up until the donks were introduced in the Tyrus Rechs books. That's when I started to get concerned. If this is the direction the writing of this series is going to take, then I'm out.
As for performance, I'm a big fan of Ray Porter and this one was, despite the objectionable materiel, another excellent performance. I don't get why folks are complaining about RC Bray not voicing this one. Bray and Porter are both at the top of their game.

Fantastic Entry in this Series

I was initially not thrilled with the new narrator, however, he grew on me quickly.

Perhaps the conversational/editorial tone of this book is better suited to his talents than the Requiem for Medusa title he also voiced.

The story is intriguing and keeps you listening / turning pages. As always a few familiar faces make an appearance, but we are now on another wild goose chase that I am excited to be a part of.

The overall tone is fairly comedic and as previously stated, "editorialized" in a funny way, as if you are riding along the story as the internal voice of the character instead of being loosely told what they are thinking or feeling. It's a cool way to tell the story and lets the authors give a lot more "personality" to the story itself and certainly the individual characters.

I've yet to read a bad book from these two, this is no exception. They've flipped the narrative a bit on some familiar humanoids and I found myself at the end feeling like "why do I suddenly like so-and-so" which is always cool. They found a way to endear certain characters to you that you would otherwise despise if you're familiar with the story already.

Well done, can't wait for the next one.

Give me more

This book went by way to quickly in my opinion. I wish it would not end. Ray Porter does a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life with his voice. I'm excited for the next book!

#BoomBoomKillaDidNothingWrong

This series keeps getting better. This book picks up after Retribution and launches season 2. It’s a tight story about a small cast of characters similar to Legionnaire. And it ties in perfectly with the rest of the series and leaves you with a hook that will make you groan in anticipation of the next title. KTF.

Another great entry into the story

Lots of new characters introduced into series, and a few old ones drop by for a visit. Overall, a good start for the season two, with some very nice twists to a story.
I didn't mind the change of narrator too much, but the butchery of Chhuns name is ... annoying.
