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.

Simply Killing It

This second installment of the Savage Wars is absolutely brilliant. It develops The Savages from a concept into varied cruel, completely different bands of crazy. It also rewards all those who invested in the first series of Galaxy's Edge. You will see things in a different light. There's 2 sentences that make Imperator, perfect sense. Stephen Lang's narration is just brilliant and by Oba, what an ending!!

A book of 2 halves

Gods is the first half and I did not like it at all, I consider listening to that time I wasted.

Legionnaires is better but to be honest very formulaic and with nothing new, that said the very end of the book was surprising and should lead into part 3 well

Hard going at first

I found this a bit of a hard listen to at the start but it was worth sticking with it as the book got really good and fits in nicely with the rest.

For information if you want these 29 books in order of galaxy’s edge history, then this is book 4 (2 and 9 not written yet) and they keep getting better and better.

slightly better than the first,

the second half was better and because of that and I have already purchased it I will listen to the 3rd Book. However if it goes into any more simulations then I will shut it off. Far from the best I ve listen to.

disappointing

I love Galaxy's Edge series - I have listened to every book in the saga so far and it has been a consistently gritty epic story. up until this book. this is an entirely different setting and style to the rest of the series - it has changed from a "Black Hawk Down" to a poor imitation of Haruki Murakami. This book is as confusing as it is confused about what it wants to be.

Another explosive delivery

Book 2 in the Savage series gives us another look into the past, the structure of the book, the deep dive into the mind of a savage marine, the look at the brutal training by Tyrus Rechs. Stunning writing as ever by Mr. Cole and Mr. Anspach. The narration by Mr. Stephen Lang is stunning. I sincerely hope that he will return to narrate many more Galaxy's Edge books. he brings the passion and personality of the books to life. The Gravitas of his narration is amazing. Please get these books, and to the authors, pleases keep writing! KTF!

Slow Start, Hard Finish

This book starts off slow, some repeativeness from the perspective of an (then) alien mind compared to what we are now, comes to a peak from the alien mind, before switching over to a more recognizable thought process. Extremely well done by the authors and magnificent performance by the narrator.

For those who are going to complain that this isn't Bray, don't take it out on the reviews, narrator, or authors, take it up with Bray and his agency.

BIG PRIZES!

Let Stephen Lang narrate as you open a door into the mind of a Savage Marine, a mind like a carnival madhouse where it's either honor and glory and BIG BIG PRIZES, or Game Over. Mind the step, it's forever in there.

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

Book 2 of the Savage Wars did not meet my eagerly anticipated expectation. The first 5 hours (20 chapters or so) were uneventful, overly repetitive, and very, very strange; they certainly didn’t add anything to the fantastic plot or themes established in book one. In fact, those 5 hours were more akin to a random collection of disjointed and drunken ramblings by Jim Morrison than anything written by Anspach and Cole (Galaxy’s Edge is one of my top 3 all-time favorites, so I’m confident in making that analogy).
The book did get exciting about half way through, when a handful of savages absolutely demolish multiple platoons of marines. Unfortunately, that was the only good action scene, and it ended abruptly after about an hour. Then, the story reverted back to another four hours of utter mediocrity.
Either Rex’s creation of the Legionnaires or a deeper look at the savages should’ve been the highlight of this book (it should’ve been much, much more interesting too). Hopefully, Anspach and Cole will deliver their usual brilliance in the next installment of Savage Wars. My fingers are crossed.
Stephan Lang‘s narration is superb.

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

I’ll take the burger

This book is different from the rest of the Galaxy’s Edge series and that’s a good thing. The first half of this story is told from the POV of a savage, and we finally get a peak inside the warped double think of that society. It’s not like Legionnaire or even savage wars book 1, but rather a more literary perspective on the GE universe. Maybe not for everyone but I love this kind of stuff. It’s dystopian and offers a commentary on the world, our world, in a way that would make Gene Roddenberry smile. Or maybe roll over in his grave. But either way, it’s insightful.

How they manage to regularly put out these books at the quality they are is amazing, they’ve built a vast universe and have wasted no time expanding it.

Not the usual KTF but excellent.

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