Tolkien meets Shock and Awe
Orcs. Trolls. Wraith riders. Dark wizards. Together, they form an unstoppable force. Or so they thought.
Dark Army… meet the U.S. Army Rangers.
When a Joint Task Force of elite Rangers are transported to a strange and fantastic future where science and evolution have incarnated the evils of myth and legend, they find themselves surrounded, pinned down, and in a desperate fight for their very survival—against nightmares of flesh and blood made real. Which means only one thing.
It’s time to Ranger Up and stack bodies.
The forces of evil have no idea how dangerous a Ranger has been trained to be, and once the action starts, it won’t let up in this no-holds-barred, full-auto, epic battle for survival in the Forgotten Ruin.
From the creators of Galaxy's Edge...
Buy in, and jock up for this thrilling WarGate adventure. A battle unlike any other is calling.
Galaxy's Edge returns with an all-new adrenaline-fueled season of the military sci-fi series!
With his duty to the Legion satisfied, Wraith sets out to find a lost member of his crew—the young girl, Prisma. But not only does the journey bring with it more death and destruction—and loss—than he ever imagined, it revives the shadows of a forgotten past… and the only way forward is to follow the footsteps of the legendary Tyrus Rechs.
Meanwhile, as the galaxy struggles to steady itself following the fall of a corrupt and bloated Republic, dangerous threats vie for power. These enemies include both the exceedingly modern and the impossibly ancient, awakening at long last to emerge from the darkness between the stars.
The galaxy follows a logical structure.
Legion Dark Operator Kel Turner believed that.
To know the order of battle and how an enemy unit was organized was to know its purpose and how to destroy it. That logic existed down to the smallest scale, down to what made up life itself. To know a molecule’s structure was to know its function—they were one and the same. It was no different for Kel. He was Dark Ops and Dark Ops was him. Down to his last cell and very soul.
But the covert action arm of the Legion is changing. And so is he. And if Dark Ops is no longer the same, how could Kel be Kel?
From fighting a gray war against a cunning adversary bent on genocide, to slogging through a jungle hell full of rabid dog-men, Kel won't stop until the mission is complete. He was his mission. But if the day comes when there would no longer be a Dark Ops for Kel, what would his mission be then?
Who would he become?
US Army Special Forces veteran Doc Spears together with Anspach & Cole continue Kel's saga in this gripping military sci-fi thriller. Dive in and see the realism of unconventional warriors that has made the Dark Operator series a Galaxy's Edge standout!
Legion Dark Ops has always been a unit shrouded in secrecy.
Tasked with performing covert missions, its kill teams are filled with the best warriors from within the ranks of the Legion.
Kel Turner is one of the youngest legionnaires ever to be selected to its ranks. After many battles and trials, he is faced with the greatest challenge of his life - operating by himself on a remote planet at the galaxy's edge, a foot soldier for the policies of the duplicitous House of Reason, tasked with solving a crisis that would take ten kill teams to resolve.
Diplomats, spies, shadowy terrorist groups, and an enigmatic general work with and against Kel as he fights to save a society from itself. What can one operator do alone, separated from his kill team, fighting a war that has no name?
This lone operator doesn't know what it will take to win. He only knows he's not going to lose.
U.S. Army special operations veteran Doc Spears teams with Anspach & Cole on his debut novel, a thrilling new military science fiction series that captures the drive, sacrifice, and discipline of those worthy of becoming Dark Ops.
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 co-creators Jason Anspach & Nick Cole, Dark Operator: Rebellion is a thrilling military action epic!
THE LEGION HAS LANDED
One hundred men met the brutal standards of General Tyrus Rechs and became legionnaires.
One hundred men embarked on a suicide mission to retake New Vega from the Savages.
One hundred men stood up... for the galaxy.
Also available in audio book format performed by Stephen Lang (Avatar, Gods and Generals), Galaxy's Edge: The Hundred is the exciting conclusion to the Savage Wars trilogy as the Legion launches a desperate, brutal assault against the overwhelming forces of the Savage Alliance.
The Battle Lines Are Drawn.
The Coalition is reeling. New Vega and its other worlds have fallen beneath the boot of the newly allied Savage marines, and the death count continues to rise at a staggering rate. One thing is clear: the war to come will be a fight for the very survival of the species. For both sides in this conflict, now is the time to become what fate, and victory, demand.
The Savages—post-human monsters who believe themselves to be gods—are intent on remaking civilization in their own violent and pathological image. Yet their alliance is tenuous. Among the many tribes of the Uplifted, as they call themselves, the struggle for supremacy rages on. All know that in the end there can be only one tribe. One leader. One truth.
Meanwhile humanity’s last, desperate hope is the formation of a new kind of fighting force: The Legion. Those select few who are hardy enough—or foolish enough—to undertake the relentless, grueling, and merciless candidate training will have the chance to be transformed into mythical heroes… or die trying. They will be pushed beyond their physical and mental limits as they seek to survive an unforgiving planet, lost and derelict ghost spaceships, and worst of all, the cold, unflinching brutality of Tyrus Rechs. At the end of this crucible, only the one percent of the one percent will earn the right to be called…
Also available in audio book format performed by Stephen Lang (Avatar, Tombstone), Galaxy’s Edge: Gods & Legionnaires brings you into the mind of the Savage marines and shows you the heart required to enter the Legion in the second epic installment of Galaxy’s Edge: Savage Wars!

At a deadly crossroads, Kel is told to choose between love and duty. But his foes are ignorant that he has a third choice.
The dark operator is the master of all the tools of lethal combat. Kel will need them all to succeed.
Experience the epic fourth installment of the Dark Operator series and join Kel on a desperate, daring mission against an evil that runs deep in the heart of the Republic. Become a Dark Operator and escape the expected.

Goth Sullus and his empire have fallen.

Plans are in motion dating back to the Savage Wars, and as the galaxy rushes to fill in the vacuum created by the fall of the Imperial Republic, the bodies are hitting the floor.
But every plan has a reckoning…

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 lived 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.
The Galaxy is a Dumpster Fire.
A hot, stinking, dumpster fire. And most days I don’t know if the legionnaires are putting out the flames, or fanning them into an inferno.
A hostile force ambushes Victory Company during a reconnaissance-in-force deep inside enemy territory. Stranded behind enemy lines, a sergeant must lead a band of survivors against merciless insurgents on a deadly alien world somewhere along the galaxy’s edge. With no room for error, the Republic’s elite fighting force must struggle to survive under siege while waiting on a rescue that might never come.
Join Victory Company as they fight for their lives. When you think you’ve surrounded the Legion... you’ve just made your last mistake.
