Publisher's Summary

Legion Dark Ops has always been a unit shrouded in secrecy. Tasked with performing covert missions, its kill teams are filled with the best warriors from within the ranks of the Legion.

Kel Turner is one of the youngest legionnaires ever to be selected to its ranks. After many battles and trials, he is faced with the greatest challenge of his life - operating by himself on a remote planet at the galaxy's edge, a foot soldier for the policies of the duplicitous House of Reason, tasked with solving a crisis that would take ten kill teams to resolve.

Diplomats, spies, shadowy terrorist groups, and an enigmatic general work with and against Kel as he fights to save a society from itself. What can one operator do alone, separated from his kill team, fighting a war that has no name?

This lone operator doesn't know what it will take to win. He only knows he's not going to lose.

Narrators tone so wrong for a great adventur story

Wrong tone. A military adventure told like a romance novel. Males female's sound the same.

Great Story Great Narration

Jason Anspach and Nick Cole (I can't get enough of their Galaxy's Edge stuff) team up again with Doc Spears for a roller coaster ride into the world of the Nether Ops shhhhhhhhh, your not supposed to know they exist. Stephen Dexter is awesome, the characters and story are excellent, even the picture on the front cover of the book is phreaking sexy.

Not Great

I'm all for more side stories and general / all round world building for this universe, but this was easily one of the most lacklustre stories in this area.

The main character just seems to exist and coasts through the events as though nothing can stop him or have any negative consequences. There's no struggle, no (real) obstacles to overcome, and the ending just felt like the writers realised this too late and tried to jam something of consequence on the tail end.

A few times the story also seemed to foreshadow some sort of upcoming turn or twist, which kept me interested, but then it just never materialised. In the end it felt more like the foreshadowing was forgotten about or the lines were just throw aways rather than the twist or storyline change being predictable.

Overall not a bad book, but not one I'd recommend to anyone who hasn't listened to or read some of the other side stories available - this one definitely comes across as one of the "I've read everything else and want more" entries, just don't expect too much.

Yawn...

Struggled to stay awake with this one, more a drama than a hard core KTF tale.
I'll give the Dark Ops series one more chance.

Too slow - narration to put you to sleep

Loved part 1 and 2 or Galaxy Edge but this Dark Ops series just isn’t keeping up the standard… extremely slow, the narration is so mellow it puts you to sleep.. no power/energy/impact … extremely disappointed I brought the series upfront.
