Summary

The Battle Lines Are Drawn.

The Coalition is reeling. New Vega and its other worlds have fallen beneath the boot of the newly allied Savage marines, and the death count continues to rise at a staggering rate. One thing is clear: The war to come will be a fight for the very survival of the species. For both sides in this conflict, now is the time to become what fate, and victory, demand.

The Savages - post-human monsters who believe themselves to be gods - are intent on remaking civilization in their own violent and pathological image. Yet their alliance is tenuous. Among the many tribes of the Uplifted, as they call themselves, the struggle for supremacy rages on. All know that in the end there can be only one tribe. One leader. One truth.

Meanwhile humanity’s last, desperate hope is the formation of a new kind of fighting force: The Legion. Those select few who are hardy enough - or foolish enough - to undertake the relentless, grueling, and merciless candidate training will have the chance to be transformed into mythical heroes...or die trying. They will be pushed beyond their physical and mental limits as they seek to survive an unforgiving planet, lost and derelict ghost spaceships, and, worst of all, the cold, unflinching brutality of Tyrus Rechs. At the end of this crucible, only the one percent of the one percent will earn the right to be called...

...Legionnaires.

Performed by Stephen Lang (Tombstone, Avatar), Galaxy’s Edge: Gods & Legionnaires brings you into the mind of the Savage marines and shows you the heart required to enter the Legion in the second epic installment of Galaxy’s Edge: Savage Wars.

Big disappointment

Boring. Difficult to follow. Not close to the first book. Very disappointed with this one.

80% Disappointing. 10% Mediocre. 10% Great.

It pains me to leave this review, but 2 of the Savage Wars is not what I anxiously anticipated it to be. The first 5 hours were uneventful, uninteresting, (very) repetitive, and just plain weird - it did nothing to advance the brilliant plot established in the 1st book. I‘s essentially like a collection of disjointed and drunken ramblings by Jim Morrison - not the writing of Anspach and Cole that I recognize and adore. I actually almost returned it multiple times, but then things got exciting for an hour or so when the savages finally(!!) dust some marines.
The last 4 hours are nothing special either - mediocre at best. Rex’s creation of the Legion should’ve been much more interesting. I desperately hope Anspach and Cole bring their usual brilliant writing, and a more exciting plot line, back in book 3 of the Savage Wars.
Narration by Stephan Lang is superb.

Galaxy’s Edge has always had the unique feeling of experiencing the story. Not reading it. You become a part of. The insight into the Savages or Uplifted as they call themselves, is unique and bone chilling. Love the beginning of the Legion as well. The Savage Wars continues and now it’s all out war....

Into the mind of the Uplifted

I’m a huge Galaxy Edge fan, I eat this stuff up, so maybe I’m a bit biased, sue me. Book is split in two, first is an in depth look inside the life of those known as Savages, at least one group, the last half was the grueling Legionnaire selection, which I found necessary, Tyrus Rechs understands what it will take to fight the biomedical enhanced humans, both are well done, Steven Lang has grown on me, already pre-ordered the next installment
