Publisher's Summary

There’s only one distraction from the stress of combat for a legionnaire - the next mission. For Sergeant Kel Turner and Kill Team Three, the wait is never long. Whether it’s on a core world snatching a delusional genius who knows too much or on the edge forging allies among a complex alien culture, Dark Ops are the foot soldiers of the House of Reason’s galactic game for dominance. 

Danger looms over Kel and his teammates like taxes over a Republic citizen. The promise is written in blood. Now they face a crisis that makes their worst firefight tame in comparison. Kel learns that sometimes there are no clear answers, manuals, or templates to follow. Isolated from Republic help, when the lives of thousands hang in the balance, a planet looks for a savior.

Fortunately, when there’s a dark operator on hand, the odds favor the Legion.

Galaxy’s Edge: Dark Operator follows the earliest days of Legion Dark Ops following the Savage Wars. Written by US Army veteran Doc Spears with Galaxy’s Edge cocreators Jason Anspach and Nick Cole, Dark Operator: Rebellion is a thrilling military action epic!

Not what I expected

So, can someone tell me why these new Galaxy Edge (GE) are so weak now, where Kill teams are afraid to kill and are so emotional or was the teams from the original series just more heavy hitters. I don’t get it, this black ops kill team was so weak, it was unnatural. How and why do they think they can control indigs whenever they were on site for advising. Doc Spears seem to be the only new name in this bunch as an author so I can only fault you, so I say please read some history material on Special Forces (SF) and how they get into areas and act. They don’t control what the natives do or try to ruin the mission by stopping their actions whenever the normal customs are taking place. You have so many examples in Afghanistan, so go back and rethink this. If this is how the new GE books will be, well I think this will be it for me. I can’t listen to this just because it has GE in the title, because just like those Point Officers in the books you write about, some of this sound like Point bull you are trying to sell me and I’m not buying it.

Doc Spears and company knock another home run out of the park with this one. Fast paced, boots on ground, authentic action. This is definitely worthy of Galaxy’s Edge. The new alien species the Q are fascinating. With every single installment this series is getting better and better. KTF

Please DO NOT Trust 5-Star Reviews.

There are many reasons why this is NOT a 5-star novel, especially when compared with anything from the GE series (including the excellent spin-offs featuring T Rex). The primary reason this book stinks: neither Anspach nor Cole took part in writing it. The plot is subsequently pathetic, characters as one dimensional as a sheet of paper, and dialogue both elementary and hackneyed. True GE fans — particularly those with backgrounds in SF, or martial service in general — will find this book truly unpalatable. Stephen Dexter’s narration is neither good nor bad. Needless to say Dexter ain’t Bray.

Evident SOF Experience

This is the second of the collaboration's with Doc Spears and as good as his first novel. The real world SOF and Special Forces experience is clear in his writing. I differentiate SOF from Special Forces (SF) because SF almost always has experience working with indigenous forces while Special Operations Forces (SOF) may not. Doc's character Kel shows both the ability to work Close Quarters Battle and skills as a Military Free Fall Jumpmaster which are found in both SOF and SF. However, he also shows the ability to work with the Q (an indigenous group). The difference in cultures with in the Q is obviously pulled from his personal experience in SF. The ability of the operator to work 'outside the box' in the application of their skills is well written within the story. I look forward to more from Doc Spears.

Good, but not much of a story.

Spoilers ahead. I think this is the first Galaxy's Edge book I am not rating with 5 stars. The first part of the book with the arrest of the mogul felt totally unnecessary. The story in the rest of the book is too flat. There are long passages of descriptive story telling that have little or no meaning for the rest of the action. The visit to the mining station comes to mind. Yes, it is tied into main story later, but there were so many irrelevant details provided, that I almost gave up on the book. And don't get me wrong, I like well written books with little action and a lot of description. Arthur C. Clark is and always will be my favorite Sci-fi writer. This book just didn't cut it. Good luck for the next one. The series remains great nonetheless.

not really that good a story to begin with.

it wasn't much of a story to begin with so there wasn't much to do about the performance of the reader. the plot is weak, the conflicts are not up to dark operator levels. like the lead character from the last book, but he's just under tasked in this one.

Very Entertaining...but...

This is a very entertaining series, great character build-up, very good performance; but, sometimes it doesn't seem like the story is going anywhere or closely connected to the GE series.

I'm running out of ways to compliment these books.

Seriously. Now, with the addition of Doc Spears to this world, the authors have brought in a new font of great stories to their universe. The amazing thing is, all of these books are entertaining adventures without being repetitive, and that's across all of the books in the GE universe. Great job with not only the writing, but the overall continuity and editing as well! TL;DR - Another excellent military sci-fi romp. If you think you'll like it, you're probably correct!

A Must Listen for Military Enthusiasts!

In yet another amazing entry into the series Anspach, Cole and Spears knock out the exact feel of the life on the cutting edge of military tactics and training in their gorgeously crafted Galaxy’s Edge universe.

Lackluster

Love the series, this particular one was pretty much fluff. the dialog felt forced and fake.

Its OK-ish

Galaxys Edge is a awesome set of books...out of the 27 books, i have found 2 which i have returned and this book which is just about OK. Will keep this one and it does add to the overall picture of the collection but it could have been 4 hours shorter.

KTF

such a good book. you can tell it has been written by someone who has experience with these sort of missions. can't wait for the next one. only thing i would change is the narrator. Luke Daniels, RC Bray or even Mark Boyette would be brilliant
