Audiobook Review – Galaxy’s Edge

Galaxy’s Edge, co-written by Jason Anspach and Nick Cole, and narrated by R.C. Bray, is a fast moving, action-packed story that will have you sitting in the car to listen until the end of the chapter.  Here’s the blurb:

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 bounter 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.

The Galaxy’s Edge audiobook includes the stories from the first two books in the series, “Legionnaire” and “Galactic Outlaws“.  The story grabs you with its first line, and when you hear the last words, you will immediately want more.  Anspach and Cole have plotted out an interesting, engrossing, and exciting yarn that just keeps coming at you.  This is an action story, but also has an excellent thread about the meaning of good and evil, and how men and women have to find their place between the two extremes.  But most of all, this book was fun, from the first word to the last.

Bray’s narration is spot on.  His voice characterizations and pacing is excellent.  He didn’t belabor the more intimate, person to person scenes in the story, and neither did he rush through the action scenes.  It’s not often that I plan on re-listening to a story, but Bray’s work on Galaxy’s Edge puts it on that list.

If you’re a fan of military science fiction or space opera, you’ll enjoy Galaxy’s Edge.  It’s a fun, engrossing story that kept my attention and left me looking forward to seeing what happens next.
