Publisher's Summary

Galaxy's Edge, Part II contains Kill Team through to the end of Attack of Shadows

Legion Dark Ops calls upon Chhun, Wraith, and the survivors of Victory Company to form an elite Kill Team of legionnaires in the aftermath of the Battle of Kublar. Their mission is clear: find and eliminate those responsible for the Kublar disaster.

Standing between them and their objective are a maze of corrupt Republic officials, a spy on the verge of losing himself in deep cover, and the Zhee - a murderous species that will stop at nothing. But the biggest threat of all might be the truth they seek to uncover - a truth that could ignite a revolution. And engulf the galaxy in flames.

Fleets collide in this audiobook in a moment-by-moment account of tactics, heroism, sacrifice, and the start of the final war of the Republic. The stakes have never been higher - and it's winner takes all.

NEED MORE

This is shaping up to be everything good from Star Wars rolled into a Galaxy spanning Space Opera, with intrigue many characters, hear the epic battles as seen from the eyes of those involved on both sides. I just need more now, RC Bray needs to keep the pace up because I can not wait for more!

Amazing story despite the odd political jab

The plot for this two part novel was well rounded, meticulously crafted and and connected to past events expertly. There were many moments I’d hear word of another character from the previous story and get excited to hear what they had been up to.

Characters were developed and relatable though on occasion the author would channel Alex Jones and we’d have a combat pilot musing to themselves about how much they disliked SJWs just before a pitched dogfight. It felt a little forced and out of place but it only happened a few times and the rest of the story more than made up for those moments.

All in all, totally recommending to my friends.

Lots of jumping around in part 2.

The story line during the battle is frankly all over the place. Still the characters are interesting.

Too many silly things

Lots of logic issues, such as stabilizer not working and still flying a successful air strike. Wait, what?
Mumbossa is a super hero! Flying across gaps, finding the only spot on the outside of a warship NOT armored... ugh, too many super feats to suspend disbelief. All the bad guys gotta do is send mubossa with Kat flying to the republic as a missed and bam! game over. baaahhh.

Good military/sci-fi series

Good on the military side good on the science fiction side. Can't go wrong with RC Bray. I appreciated commonalities with current conflicts. it feels like the author purposely made the connections.

Listen carefully

I enjoyed part 1 and 2 of Galaxy’s Edge, but I find myself having to relisten to them both bc I get lost when they jump around time and sides of the battle and different characters. Granted I’m usually multitasking while listening, but I don’t mind listening to it twice bc I catch nuggets I didn’t the first time

KTF... loved it

So after listening to book 2, I went back to listen to the first book and then again listen to second book. The way that the 2 books are now integrated, total hooked me. I am a big Star Wars fan and these two book are now very very close to my most loved Star Wars books (Thrawn).
R.C. Bray voice feels so "on point". I feel I now need to look at other books that he has narrated. And i now need so start looking at military/war books as these books may have made me a fan.

A Decent Listen for Sci-fi Junkies

I'll put it bluntly: this series egregious use of material obviously borrowed (or, in some cases, very nearly plagiarized) from Star Wars makes it eye-rollingly bothersome to listen to, at times. Add to that some of the more unimaginative elements of the story (for example, there is an alien character with a rare skin complexion that is very much like colors of Autumn named Autumna Fall... seriously) and you can be ripped right out of the more engrossing parts of the book in an instant.

The first half of the book (technically these books are two books in one) is quite good and very enjoyable to listen to. Clearly the highlight of the entire book. The intricate and intimate story is very well done and very, very enthralling.

The second half...not so much. The story told in the second half of the book is grand to a level that is overall detrimental to itself. Attempting to tell several minor stories from the viewpoint of several minor and major characters alike makes it all too clunky and clumsy, at times. While I appreciate that the author was trying to convey all of the important bits of the story, too many of them really weren't worth the effort.

I listen to books while I work and, honestly, if I had 100% of my attention devoted to this book, I probably would have stopped listening to it. However, if you're a hardcore sci-fi junkie, (like me) or you simply need a reasonably good book (series) to occupy your time while you wait for a long awaited book to come out (again, like me), then this series will do you well enough.

Just...try not to take it TOO seriously.

On Par with Book 1.

I love the way R.C. Bray does this series, he is a master of audiobook characters.
I was skeptical about this series after the way the first book ended, but now I'm all in. I wonder what would have happened if General Rex had aligned with the Galaxy's ultimate baddy?
The similarities between this and the most successful sci-fi franchise (well until the last spin off prequel movie that is) are present but honestly - that is to be expected. I mean the original trilogy was massively popular and influential. This story goes it's own ways to break from the typical copycat format. there is enough influence to evoke nostalgia yet enough grit and fundamental differences to make it very much it's own animal. The military references and the quirky parts that make this series different is what makes it special. The characters are interesting and well done by R.C. Bray and the authors should never ever let anyone else read this series, not only for continuity, but for pure entertainment value.
I like how these books are separated into two different times in the republic. There isn't just a fly by pants seat approach to this story that goes on forever like some other titles - just more and more and more to continue the series and it's success, you get the impression that the authors have a clear and interesting storyline here.

I can't wait for the next installment.

Even better

I didn't think Jason and Nick could possibly top the first GE audiobook, but man, Part 2 is spectacular. I'm looking for stuff to do outside so I can keep listening. If you liked the first one, you'll love this. If you didn't like the first one, go back and listen to it again. I can't wait until this is on Netflix.

Galaxy's Edge, 2 Parts

Am I being harsh giving the storyline only 2 stars? I don't think so. I really wanted this book to be good and I hold out hope for the future. However this one fell short of the mark.

The book is in two parts. There are no plot spoilers here, but what we have is very much a game of two halves. The first problem I had was with the authors writing one of the lead characters in the second person and monotonously tell you that "you are Tom", when you blatantly are not. It just did not work for me. That, along with the ridiculous counter-contradictory dialogue (the best way I can describe it) just meant the whole thing rapidly became a tedious mess. I can well understand why another reviewer gave up at this point. I nearly did too. I was genuinely thankful for part 2.

The second part is, on the whole, pretty good. There are some elements that are disturbingly Star Wars-ish and the writers would do well to avoid that. But against that was the way the authors cleverly switched the points from which the battles were reported. Without doubt part 2 is better written, giving RC Bray far more to work with. Once again Bray brings his A game and steers us through.

Clearly we are set up for another book. Hopefully, when it arrives we will look back at Galaxy Edge 2 as the weak platform for an outstanding sequel.

Nah, Nope...No more. Tried parts 1 and 2.

I wanted to like these, as I'm desperate for a decent sci-fi series to get in to.
My hope was that book 2 would be an improvement on the 1st.
Sadly, I don't think that's the case.
Characters are so one dimensional they barely deserve names. The political scenario is simplistic and non-sensical.

in short; a list of names and a series of events.

The series just keeps getting better! R.C.Bray's narration is 1st class as always, bringing the story and characters to life. The Space Battle scenes rank among the best In Science Fiction and this is an absolute must for any fan!

Impressed

It was very interesting to listen. I liked the story being told from different person perspective and detailed timing of events, now I how long the space battle takes time.
Maybe slightly to much detail for somebody who's first language is not English, but replay button helped tackle this slight "issue".

Everything is coming together

Now i know the first audio book was a little tough to swallow just because it jumped from Kublar to the story of Prisma, Indelible 6, Tyrus Rex and so on without warning. it seemed really odd to me to.

However, i feel as if it was split like this on purpose rather than just plain bad writing. The characters each get introduced in unrelated story arcs in the first book then this one comes along, slowly weaving the 2 separate stories from the first.

Also i've read a few complaints that the first portion of this audio book was also difficult, especially the "You are Tom" part. To be honest, i think it worked well because it seemed like brain washing, constantly Tom this Tom that, you could feel the characters struggle, the fighting between his humanity and the mission. The personality clash and eventual blur of deep undercover work. At one point i swear he would've gone rogue.

As for the 2nd part of the Audiobook, well, i swear i could see the invasion play out in front of my eyes. The lies, the deceit, the political play all building to the end game. Also the combat, my goodness, you can feel the rush the soldiers are experiencing. I personally think this book would make for a bomb series or even an epic block buster movie though yeah at some point you can see some star wars-esque situations play out.

All in all i very much enjoyed the book, and as always RC Bray takes the cake. Peace out.

Outstanding. Game of thrones meets star wars

book 1 set the scene and though the jumping in story time line was challenging initially it worked and came together in book 2. can't wait to listen to book 3 now. as ever narration was excellent and made this book come to life - thank you R.C.
