Spoilers below if you haven't read book one and two:
This book begins with Aeson Keel (aka Wraith from book 2) flying his ship, when he gets a message, the scene shifts to a flashback of Wraith, Chhun, etc. as they escaped the planet in the first book, and follows their exploits as they volunteer to be a Dark Ops, the Legion's version of Delta, the SEALS, SAS, etc. The book also explains that there is a layer darker than that, Nether Ops, which does very horrible things in order to hopefully stop the unthinkable.
Very good, it's clear the authors are on a roll, and hopefully they don't stop anytime soon. The evolution of Chhun, Wraith, Kags, Masters, Exo, and Twenties into an elite Kill Team for Dark Ops is a good read, and finding out how, and why, the Chiasm was destroyed in book 1 is a revelation.
I originally got these because I was waiting for another series to publish, but yeah I am all in now. I should have been asleep hours ago. Just wait til the end of this one. Holy bomb shells of non linear story telling. So insane. So awesome
Whilst running missions, they learn from an inside source that things are worse than they thought, another mission is planned by the MCR and this time their target will upset the entire Galaxy.
It is up to the Indelible 6, a Dark Ops Kill Team made up of the Legions best, to stop it, to save the Galaxy before it burns. Time to KTF.
Whilst it might seem that this books are guns and glory, they aren’t. These are well thought out, incredibly well written stories with keen tactical and strategic knowledge, exceptional characters and some brilliant tech. The combat scenes are outstanding, written with in-depth skill, so that you feel like you are standing in the room watching the battle take place in front on you.
This is a book that will suit all readers, those looking for a fantastic read of black ops, and skilled combat (I still say it has an edge of an Adults Only version of Star Wars the Clone Wars, with the Elite Clones to TacOps), but it also covers aspects of the Political Intrigue going on behind the scenes, looks at the soldier’s lives and how this is affecting them, and then there is the Espionage aspect of it as well, with all the cloak and dagger stuff going on behind the scenes as well. This book has something for everyone.
Best of all though, it is just exceptionally well written, Chhun, Tom, and all the other characters are just beautifully constructed, so real, so in-depth with their emotions, their responses, the dialogue.
This is a book that you will pick up, and just be glued to, whipping through pages and not be able to put down as you have to know what happens.
Galaxy’s Edge is the place to be, for a brilliant read you don’t want to miss.
The first follows the survivors of Victory Company after the Battle of Kublar as they hunt down those responsible for Chiasm's destruction. You see the evolution of both Chhun and Ford and a lot of the causes of what happened in book 2 is explained by this storyline. Great fight scenes and a tense, moving finale make this a great story in its own right.
The second plot line follows "Tom" as he attempts to hunt down rebels and gets in over his head in the galaxy's seedy underbelly. It's a John Le Carre flavored noir that pulls at your heartstrings when you follow "Tom" on his journey. You will cry, yell at, and ultimately cheer for him; especially in the finale when the two stories combine. Get this book. You will love it. Get the other books in the series too if you haven't already.
And then she closes the door on your face and you might as well just fade back to Nether Ops because they say, over there at Nether Ops Command, there really is no going back.
No going back. That's a theme here. No going back for the antihero Tom whose mission is to dive into the slime and expose the bad guys to the Kill Team.
No going back for the leej team who must stop the MCR from a major act of planetary-scale terrorism.
No going back for the casualties we'll miss.
So, I'll keep going forward and reading each release and waiting on the edge of my seat for the next.

There is something horrendous about the way the stories are written and and at other times truly brilliant. Book I complained about too many sub stories at the beginning of the book, this time it's the way one of the primary characters narrates the book from his perspective, but I'm the 3rd person. Drove nuts, in the end I just skipped most of that part of the story
The excellent part was the kill team. They were fun to read about, their interactions enjoyable to see and the battle fight scenes the highlights of the whole book
On that note about battle scenes. They are very well written, not too much detail, but enough to build the picture. SE of the better story telling I have read and I read a lot.
Off to get book 4, I'll let everyone know how that goes too
Kill team starts just after the events of the second novel before quickly going back to fill in some of the seven year gap between book one and two and the events leading to the Kublar massacre.
Battered and bloody the surviving members of victory company are thirsty for paybck and answers are recruited in to the black ops kill teams of the legion.
Meanwhile a shadow intelligence organization of the republic has a deep cover operative so deep that he may lose himself in the role that he plays, in attempt to gain the trust of the man supplying arms to the Mid Core Rebbelion.
Don't let how the book switches narratives put you off as this adds to the story in a whole.
If you had questions from the first two novels then maybe this will answer some of them for you, but the twists at the end will leave you wanting more from the galaxy's edge series.
Anspach & Cole have created one of the greatest universe's since one that was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.
