Hold on, you’re about to make the jump to light-speed in Galaxy’s Edge.
Leap into a living universe of war’s heroes knee-deep in dark intrigues, blasters and bots in blind alley combat, and scoundrel captains looking to coax one more smuggling run out of their broken-down freighters.
Each book in the Galaxy's Edge series is an essential piece of an interconnected whole. Fight alongside Lieutenant Chhun and Victory Company through the deserts of Kublar in Legionnaire. Join the roguish Captain Keel and notorious bounty hunter Tyrus Rechs as they chase the same target in Galactic Outlaws. Continue to Kill Team to see how all these characters find their place on the galactic stage together, along with Legion Commander Keller, Dark Ops, and the mysterious secret agent X... then brace for a civil war initiated by the enigmatic Goth Sullus in Attack of Shadows.
And that's only the beginning.

Galactic Outlaws is set 7 years after this battle, and whilst they still have Legionnaires, they are not of the same quality as the old school. The older generation (most who have left and gone off to be Mercs or Bounty Hunters), look at the newbies and see them as target practice, with armour that is nothing compared to what they used to have, poorer training, and lack of decent equipment overall.
The story focuses on two of the older Legionnaires, one known as Tyrus Rechs, and the other is Aeson Keel.
They both served at Kublar, and although Rechs is older, Keel has certainly been around. Rechs is now a bounty hunter, a grizzled old warrior who has seen it all, had more lives than a cat, seen more bodies than a morgue attendant, and has left more destruction in his wake than the reaper himself.
Keel is a quasi-bounty hunter, part courier who works with a holographic side-kick Ravi, who also works as his conscience a lot of the time, helping him keep on the straight and narrow, and probably stopping him turning into a Rechs. When he does his seedier work, he changes his helmet, and becomes ‘Wraith’, a figure that terrifies the underworld, and spreads a fear amongst others like a wildfire through a sugar cane field.
Through these two lives we see what has become of the Legionnaires that once fought as proud, honourable soldiers for the Republic, both now full of bitter resentment, anger, sorrow, regret, with little of their own souls to give to anyone else anymore. Through a twist of fate, they both find themselves helping out young girls, Rechs is approached by a young girl looking to hire a bounty hunter to avenge her father, and he can’t help but try touched as he is by her story. Keels on the other hand is moving slaves, two of them he believes are a prince and princess.
And so the adventure begins, with both our ‘Reluctant Heroes’ trying to help their respective young women in trouble.
It should be noted though, this isn't about a damsel in distress. These young women, one only in her early teens, the other not much older. Both though show early on that they are full of steel, and capable of holding their own.
This is a totally different story to the first book, looking at the impact that the battle on Kublar and the subsequent fallout has had on the Legionnaires (as well as the multitude of other battles that they have had to endure with insufficient support from leadership). It has left a lot of the older and original Leej’s damaged.
This is a really clever story, well written, and in a lot of ways, probably too close to the truth to be comfortable. Not that there are Sci-Fi Legionnaire’s running around, but that we expect our soldiers and special forces to do things that no human being should ever have to, and then assimilate back into society. A lot can’t, and this leads to sociopathic behaviour, in some instances, it leads to the soldiers actually taking on jobs as Mercenaries or guns for hire in countries they should not be in, taking jobs that are too dangerous for Western forces.
This book looks at the darker side of warfare, and does a brilliant job of it. It also allows us to get a bit of a feel for how someone like Boba Fett might have made a living. There are a lot of similarities between this series and Star Wars, except for in this series, the highly trained soldiers can actually hit a Bantha two feet away with a thermal detonator, unlike a Storm Trooper.
Galaxy’s Edge is like the Star Wars Clone Wars – the cartoon they made for kids, but this one is not in the Star Wars universe, and it definitely is NOT for kids. It is a must read though!!
The story is set a long time in the future at the edge of this galaxy, and the action kicks off on the first page with a Legionnaire intervention on a planet, coinciding with a girl and her robot seeking to hire a bounty hunter to avenge her murdered father. Meanwhile a smuggler and wheeler-dealer seeks to turn a profit from the chaos and gets caught up in a plot with bigger implications.
But the star of the show is Tyrus Rechs, an old soldier turned bounty hunter, a renegade from a government he can no longer serve, who finds himself taking up the girl’s cause of vengeance and justice. The journey will take him from one strange and dangerous den of outlaws to another, usually sites of prior battlefields where Rechs himself played a role in his bloody past. Along the way, Rechs will find a mystery tied up with his own past, one that threatens the future of an unprepared civilization.
If the galaxy is to be saved, it'll be up to those who operate outside the law.
Highly recommended for fans of old-school Star Wars and similar stories. I must also mention there were several moments where the authors poked fun at the franchise’s later missteps, but never to the point where it diverted from the story.

Oh and one last thing, the cat creature, let speak the same language as everyone else, or find some other way of conveying what it's saying. Having it say something indicipherable and then one of the other characters replying in English is nuts
Get past all of that and it's a fun nook
This one just dragged nothing new and the whole Star Wars tie in just didn't gel. Characters were too shallow or too cliched to believe in and I found myself skipping the filler, pages at a time, by half way through the book. So I gave up.
Enjoyable read, I hope the authors explore more of the early background of Sullivan and friends,to let us know how the Thousand year man came to be.
This one fell into various cliches and copying from any number of classics for plot and characters but without any new twists. Became a bit tiresome and I lost interest towards the end.
Definitely read the first book though which stands alone.
