Summary

A price paid in blood   

“The Order of the Centurion is the highest award that can be bestowed upon an individual serving in, or with, the Legion. When such an individual displays exceptional valor in action against an enemy force, and uncommon loyalty and devotion to the Legion and its legionnaires, refusing to abandon post, mission, or brothers, even unto death, the Legion dutifully recognizes such courage with this award.” 

Tired of sitting out the war on Psydon in a mobile office lab, Legion Lieutenant Washam agrees to undertake a covert and unsanctioned mission with a band of Republic Recon Marines. Inserted deep behind enemy lines, the strike force uncovers a surprise key to ending a bitter war. Now they must navigate a hostile jungle teeming with murderous alien rebels, pushing themselves to the limits of their abilities, to get this vital intel to Legion Command - if they can survive that long. 

The Order of the Centurion is an all-new series of stand-alone military science fiction thrillers set in the Galaxy's Edge universe, ranging from the Savage Wars to the arrival of the Black Fleet. Each book features the legendary heroes of the Legion who forgot nothing in their earning of the Legion's highest honor.

A Point Can be a Leeg and KTF

A brilliant addition to the world that is Galaxy's Edge. Although it's a brilliant standalone story there are rewards for those who have followed the series from the beginning. Things fall into place perfectly. It grips you from the beginning and does not let go.

Don’t be thrown off by the new narrator

I’m as big a Bray fan boy as the next guy but Mark Boyett is a quality narrator and will do nothing to detract from the overall quality of the book. I do think his wheelhouse is on the slightly less serious end of the spectrum (he really shines in undying mercinaries) but his voice fits the genera well. Again he’s great and once you’ve adjusted you’ll love it.

A phenomenal new tale!

This new story is exceptionally well written. It makes a wonderful new addition to the Galaxy's Edge universe. It's a no-holds-barred story of adventure, war, and those that are burdened with its consequences. I couldn't stop listening. It grabs you and doesnt let you go until it forces you to not just hear the tale, but experience it.

I look forward to more stories like this from these authors. They've continued to churn out some of the best military sci-fi adventure I've ever had the privilege of reading. I highly recommend all of their work thus far.

Great Stand alone book so far

So i for some reason or another, i haven't started the galaxy's edge series, so i cant speak on how the narrator or story compare. As a stand alone book this feels sooooooo good. I felt like this is what Vietnam would be like, this whole book flew by. It added the right amount of detail 95% of the time, i felt each characters' actions were within reason. Everyone is a cold and calculating trained killer, but our character is a trained killer but hasn't had combat experience and that among other reasons makes him a real down to earth person that i could feel all the emotions that he felt 9/10. It's right up there with litrpg's "the land" series, i cant speak on the whole series but this book just felt..............real but please give this book a shot i want to give this book the acknowledgment that it deserves.

The 'Points' Get Their Due

This is an excellent example of what it takes to write a military SciFi genre novel. The authors took the time to write the two primary protagonists backstory in just the right way to immediately let the listener know that, while their careers have been mediocre and unnoteworthy up to that moment, things were about to dramatically change. The authors spent just the right amount and choice of words to provide the emphasis on duty, honor and valor without having to convince us through constant repetition of those words but through the actions of the protagonists during the travails that they found themselves in and their reactions to them.

My only criticism is how the actions after the Order of the Centurion was awarded made the honor seem less worthy but it was a minor drawback. The fullness of the novel was pure adrenaline-pumping, one heroic scene after another and Mark Boyett worked his own unique style of narrating magic to keep those chemicals in constant circulation.

Ranger 1/75

I am a huge fan of the Galaxys Edge series. the Legion reminds me of my time in the military. this particular book is a great addition and back story to Capt Washum. I am not much for words but this book and the entire Galaxys Edge series has been my favorite military sci fi universe. if these books are on your recommendation list from audible or Kindle, read or listen to them you will not be disappointed!!

The best one yet

This is it! The best Galaxy’s Edge story to date. Although many may be hesitant as RC Bray is not involved, Anspach and Cole picked the perfect narrator for this story and these characters. I can’t begin to describe how perfect of a performance this is by Mark Boyett. He captures the mood of every moment flawlessly. I am at a loss at just how unbelievably wonderful this story is.

definitely a solid addition to the G.E. universe.

The narrator took some gettin used to. almost to the point I gave up on it, but by the end I was very happy I continued and felt it was a great listen.

Riveting action all through.

Action packed story kept your interest peaked to find out what would happen next. Sad that the Sargent Major had to die couple months before his retirement,, would it if they all could recieved the Order of the Centurion all the Legion soldiers ,and the Marines awarded an Honor suitable for their branch of the Military. Brotherhood and strong friendships is showned very strongly in this story. Actually teared up very heart warming and wrenching.
Would really recommend this book. Told very well i could vision exactly what was read, got great visions un mind of the place the terrain, climate and around.

Fabulous New Thread Along the Galaxy's Frayed Edge

If you want an adventure, action and glory in your book, look no further. I thought the Order of the Centurion was a splendid first in a new series within the Galaxy's Edge universe. From the aging sergeant who is supposed to retire so he can make up lost time with his family to the earnest young lieutenant "point" with something to prove, the characters surprised me with how relatable and endearing I found them. Drop them in a jungle and let the fighting begin! It was hard to catch my breath with this book! Enjoy!
