Publisher's Summary

Failure is a hateful word.

For Dark Ops Sergeant Kel Turner, it’s unthinkable. Until now. Kill teams are accustomed to achieving the impossible, and Kill Team Three has done the impossible more than any other. Tasked with mission after mission against a never-ending list of enemies, Kel and Three brace themselves to rise to the occasion yet again.

Kel lives under no doubts about his kill team’s ability to win against any odds, until an enemy thought long defeated reappears. From a dingy city locked in the center of a cold war to a nightmarish alien landscape, the one constant that defines their latest missions is that a kill team is always alone.

Living in the black world of covert operations, there are secrets, then there are secrets. The first might lead to his death. The second might lead to failure.

For this Dark Operator, in a galaxy filled with potentials, death is preferable to failure.

Let down

I keep getting the next in this spin off and keep getting let down worse each time. The narrator is all jacked up, his pace and tone are off, way too dramatic at times and makes simple statements seem like key plot points.
I keep thinking these will be better with the both original authors putting their stamp on it, but no it’s the weakest of the spin off series’ by far ( well minus that horrible free one about the the marine lady turned intel spook). I respect doc spears real world accomplishments, but holy Jesus there’s like 3 hours on an uneventful spaceship ride. It’s just a dragging slow story that talks about every tiny aspect of an operation and the plots are just boring. Also why is the 75 of the main dudes maxims or rules of war or whatever at the end? Is that just to ensure I don’t get the next book? Too easy, consider it done. I love this universe but can’t do this spinoff anymore

Just skip the first half

I love the series overall but this book has a very boring start that seems to be of little consequence to the story. In the final act of the book, things do pick up and I was more engaged but I was close to putting this one down at that point so it was mostly spoiled. I look forward to the next book but I hope it's not similar to this one.

not worth the credit

Don't buy this thinking it's like something that RC Bray did, it's not. This story is weak and unorganized. not worth the credit at all.

Coming into it's stride.

While I mostly enjoyed the first Dark Operator, the Second one in the series had me wondering where this was all going and not that impressed.

NO FAIL changed my mind. Theres connecting bits and pieces now, hints and glimpses of more at work behind the scenes. It feels far more connected and worked into the GE universe than the first two books. Where the first two felt like your standard military special ops books with just a sci-fi flair, this one actually has the Galaxys Edge flair in it while keeping that grounded feel of the Doc Spears insite. The story has much more weight now and it doesn't feel like a one off this time

If you just finished Rebellion and wondering if you should continue with the series give No Fail a chance and I think (as long as your a fan of everything else in Galaxy's Edge) your in for a nice surprise.

Another Great Iteration in a Great Series

In this installment of Doc Spears' remarkable series, an ancient enemy returns, and our favorite kill team gets charged with cleaning up a mess that is much more than meets the eye. Join the team as they get saddled with some unwelcome guests, and the hilarity that comes with them, as they are launched on a mission that will change everything.

OK, now the story is really going...

I have to admit that this series was a little more difficult for me to get into. At this point in Kel's journey things are really starting to fall into place. The earlier books were kind of reminiscent of the Order of the Centurion series, as in the fit in but didnt feel like they contributed to the overarching storyline, but now it is starting to come full circle. I can't wait to start the next book in the series.
It is also worth mentioning that the narrator is an acquired taste. RC Bray and Stephen Lang are hard acts to follow, but this narrator has finally hit his stride in telling the story.

not just a sci fi, but a brilliant book altogethe

it reads like a proper military book, with all the tactics, the missions, the drama. no magic genie the rescue the hero, just good old fashion hard training.
what i love about this series is that the hero is a hard worker, no sci fi magic to overpower him, and to those critics out there saying there isn't enough fighting, they need to realise that war isn't a constant fight. is many battles spread through a number of months/years

a book and a half

besides a few narrative inconsistencies the VO is good. the book starts in a cold war Berlin style city where half the book takes place. this is quite good but nothing special. the 2nd half had me on the edge of my seat expecting something amazing for the series and Galaxy but instead was left with a lackluster story and only a couple robots to keep me from turning it off
