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 bounty hunter lies in wait.

This book series is a fun mix of all the good Sci-Fi Classics from Star Wars to Star Trek to Firefly, little bit of everything All mixed into one. I sure hope audiable gets on it and gets the rest of the books in the series available.

Legion Dark Ops calls upon Chhun, Wraith, and the survivors of Victory Company to form an elite Kill Team of legionnaires in the aftermath of the Battle of Kublar. Their mission is clear: find and eliminate those responsible for the Kublar disaster. Standing between them and their objective are a maze of corrupt Republic officials, a spy on the verge of losing himself in deep cover, and the Zhee - a murderous species that will stop at nothing. But the biggest threat of all might be the truth they seek to uncover - a truth that could ignite a revolution. And engulf the galaxy in flames.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

Boomstick. Samurai bat. Motorcycle leather. And the will to live among the unliving.

Living on the outskirts of a city and scavenging for whatever supplies remain after civilization died two years ago, Gus knows that every time he goes down into undead suburbia could be his last.

Good original storyline, entertaining. Narration by Ron Perlman better-than-expected, he's a little monotone that goes without saying but he is actually a pretty good reader. I'm definitely going to get the next two books in the series.

I have to admit I was very disappointed with this book. I have been told what a literary classic it was my whole life, it was one of the most driest books I have ever listened to and the narrator was extremely monotone wich did not help. if you are into identifying and classifying sea species you might like this, if you're looking for a classic action book this is certainly not one.

I grow up watching the movie, the book is so much better. be warned though this is not for the PC crowd, they actually have to hunt and kill animals for food and the "mother" is actually proud to be a wife and a mother which in some circles today is considered sexist and misogynist. the narrator is great and really in bodies the father from the movie. as with most books the storyline is quite a bit different than the movie but still good.
