Publisher's 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 gem.

Quietly surprised. Just chose this kind of randomly based on the stars of others. Personally not regretting it. Not overly complicated which is what you'll get out of a 7 hour story and glad for it. Any more and it'll unnecessary waffle. Well done to the author.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Amazing!

This book is an incredible work of art from beginning to end. I was really worried given that they switched narrators from the original Galaxy's Edge series, but he nailed it! I think he's even better than RC Bray.

If you're a fan of sci-fi or military books, don't even think about it. Just purchase this book, put in your earbuds, and press play. You will not be disappointed and you will not regret it!

I thought this story was very good

I liked that this book took a character from Galaxy's Edge and expanded on what his back story was. Very good Story. The Narration was decent.

Great story, gives insight

The story was pretty awesome. You get attached to characters. You get some insight into a character in the main story of Galaxys Edge.

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.

Really really enjoyed this story.

Really really enjoyed this story. It kept me hooked from the very first page. I was listening to this while at work, let me tell you now, I got really annoyed when people were trying to talk to me while I was listening to this.

The action was so on point. It was great to see the Washam adapt and change. To see him grow into who is.
