Publisher's Summary

Galaxy's Edge contains Legionnaire through to the end of Galactic Outlaws

On the edge of the galaxy, a diplomatic mission to an alien planet takes a turn when the Legionnaires, an elite special fighting force, find themselves ambushed and stranded behind enemy lines. They struggle to survive under siege, waiting on a rescue that might never come.

In the seedy starport of Ackabar, a young girl searches the crime-ridden gutters to avenge her father's murder; not far away, a double-dealing legionniare-turned-smuggler hunts an epic payday; and somewhere along the outer galaxy, a mysterious bounty hunter lies in wait.

Galaxy's Edge combines sleek starfighters, exotic aliens, loyal bots, blasters, scoundrels, heroes, and powerful enemies in a thrilling adventure that will take you back to that magic place from a long time ago.

Star Wars Meets Halo!

Enough said! Characters and their interactions with story hooks has a very Star Wars feel. Throw in a little elite armor guys in battle is like Halo. Love this!

Remember when the star war filled with starship troopers was on the firefly class

As the title of my review suggests the aurhors lend a great deal from these stories making an enjoyable book and I would recommend listening if you like any three of the aforementioned titles the only negatives is the fact that lending ideas from said titles makes small moments of “wow they really just did that?” Quite common that slightly distracts from the story

Other than that a vivid imagination and narrative gives this a charming feel that doesn’t dissatisfy

Looking forward to the next instalment

Ok, but got annoying at times.

The story and action were decent and RC Bray excellent as usual but the constant SW nods got old fast. I mean, the main bad guy is Goth Sullust...why not just call the veteran bounty hunter (because of course there's a veteran bounty hunter) "Foba Bett"??

bit of a disconnect between parts

this is a good space adventure but there seemed to be quite a disconnect between part one and part two. it takes a while to catch up and the ending leaves you hanging. obviously there has to be more book forthcoming but I feel as though there should have been a bridge between the two parts. the narration is masterful although he used his Skippy voice for a truly dreadful character in this book. and if you know Bray you should know about Skippy the meh by now.

As scrambled as Rex’s Memories

This book was all over the place in time, stories, flashbacks, character development, character devolution, numerous subplots, and left a lot of questions to be answered. R.C. Bray did an outstanding performance and this book series has a lot of promise; however, this particular book seems thrown together. It really reminds me of an amalgamation of Halo, Warhammer 40k, Starcraft, EVE, and Stephen Sommer’s The Mummy Trilogy. To be honest, I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this book. I want to like it, but it’s a hate/love relationship at the moment. Get it if you like sci-fi, stay away if your OCD about storylines.

War never changes.

QR: Great war story, dark humor, good first person.


From the first 10 minutes in you'll be hooked, RC Bray voices this war story perfectly. If you've ever served, you'll catch a lot of references that'll make you laugh. Even if you haven't, there is just the slightest bit of dark humor to keep the action moving. I would highly recommend it if your looking for that action book fix.

I wanted to love this, but . . .

I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. Audible kept recommending Galaxy's Edge for me, R.C. Bray is a narrator I enjoy, and at 17+ hours it was a good value for the credit. What could go wrong? But for some reason, I just couldn't enjoy this -- or even follow the story at some points. The characters are so thinly sketched that it was difficult for me to identify or empathize with any of them -- or even keep track. (It reminds me of Star Wars in that way, which seems to be the type of universe the authors were hoping to evoke.) As other reviewers have pointed out, there's a disconnect between the two parts, although that's the least of the problems. If you like compelling characters, you won't find them here. If you get confused about continuity when listening to audiobooks (as I sometimes do), don't buy this book. But is it worth one credit? Probably. I'm on the fence.

Best story in a long time!

Wow... this book was the first that's kept me engaged throughout in a long time. I never got bored, it keeps you guessing and on your toes throughout. It paints a beautiful world, with vivid and deep characters with a secret or two.

The Perfect Narrator for an amazing book!

Would you listen to Galaxy's Edge again? Why?

Absolutely. The time flew by listening to this.

What did you like best about this story?

The writing was top-notch, and Bray's portrayal of Keel in part two was wonderful.

Which scene was your favorite?

Ravi and Keel's first appearance.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The galaxy is a dumpster fire.

I've been waiting for this book for MONTHS. The story sucks you in with the first line and never lets up even if you try to tap out. Great story, great performance, and I'm ready to pre-order the next one. You get 2 books for the price of 1 credit, so stop standing around reading this review and buy it already.

Difficult


This is a hard one for me to review. At the time I did not realise it was two books, so I was really enjoying the book then it jumped to seven years later and I did not recognise the characters and I just felt lost. I kept waiting to hear from Legionnaire Sergeant Cohen Chhun. Nope, don’t think I did! But I can’t give this book a negative review. I enjoyed it once I did a quick search on the book and found out it was more than one book. There is a series and this is the first two. So the first book is set on one world with one group of legionnaires. It’s very military with science fiction weaved in, (we are on a foreign planned in the future) there are aliens. The second book or 7 years later. We are following a young girl and her war bot/guardian, a legionnaire-turned-smuggler and his crew (starts up and him and a AI but expands)
and a bounty hunter. They are on a collision course with each other. This book we see a lot more of the universe or at lease a few different planets. I feel it’s a little less military but there are some good fights. It’s well narrated of course as it’s R.C. Bray I always enjoy his voice! I enjoyed the story very much, once I understood it was a second book.

Feels like a StarWars Firefly mashup

RC Bray a friend pointed out to me that you could make microwave instructions enigmatic, awesome job as always.

The story is ok, a good pulp fiction story. The occasional interesting twist. Please don't do an Arisen and over play this.

A proper space opera! Very good aspects of a thriller, military sci-fi and science fiction a-la Lee Child, Michael Stephen Fuchs and Alastair Reynolds respectively. R.C. Bray does a wonderful job too.

Entertainment. Don't expect more.

As the first book in the series this appears a little schizophrenic, with two quite different stories. The first being a military survival story, which ends after completing the expected arc (it tells you near the start how it ends). Then there is a new story that turns things on it's head and becomes an epic galaxy in peril space opera. Both stories are fine, but don't fit back to back.

voice actor is good, but on several occasions uses the wrong voice before realising he's supposed to have changed to another character. This should have been noticed and those lines rerecorded.

It's unlikely to rock your world,, but if you like your sci-fi a bit cheesy you could do far worse than this.

Army/gun p*rn in a sci-fi setting

Army is super, guns are awesome, government is stuoid and/or malicious, natives are stupid while "we" are awesome and know best (forget about the government) etc, etc, etc...

The whole thing is a puke-worthy, right-wing, gun-nut propaganda. RETURN!

K.T.F. : Kill. Them. First.

Two complete novels from the Edge of the Galaxy, The Legionnaire, and, Galactic Outlaws. Both are complete in themselves, the second set decades after the first, but there are links between them.
From the very first moment of the first book, the reader is thrown into the middle of the action and it just keeps on going to the end. But emerging from the fast, furious and deadly are the personalities of one closely knit unit of leggionaires from Victory company, so alive, so three dimensional, they quickly become people to care about, just as they care for, and protect, each other as they try to defend the interests of the Republic who's bad judgement sent them there in the first place.
Book two has moved forward in time and the new leggionaires are not what they used to be. Instead we follow the activities of bounty hunters, one very old loner with a terrifying reputation, the second a charasmatic space pirate, his hologram navigator and several unsavoury, if amusing friends. And one little girl who wants vengeance on the man who murdered her daddy. More stunning and original action as different strands come together to culminate in a climactic ending. And lots of humour woven into the mahem from these technicolour characters.

The whole double helping of S.F. delight is masterfully performed by R.C.Bray, whose reading (first person in book one, varying in the second) is consistently clear, with perfectly balanced intonation and involvement without ever distracting from the story with over indulgent excitement. Instead, he allows the story to tell itself, the individual characters always clearly distinguishable, one from another, with voices which perfectly matched their personalities. Voice acting at it's best and which makes an already superb story even better.
If you enjoy science fiction, you've got to get this.
Highly recommended.

This gripped me immediately. It's the beginning of an epic military Sci Fi saga. I wish I had listened to it sooner. RC Bray nails it as usual. Already downloaded the next installment. Really impressed by the storyline and subplots
