Publisher's Summary

Every disaster brings an opportunity.

Goth Sullus and his empire have fallen.  

With the Legion and the rest of the galaxy watching from the still-smoldering galactic core, Carter, a former legionnaire turned private contractor, and Jack Bowie, a Navy spy with nowhere left to turn, sign up to work for an enterprising private contractor looking to make a statement on the planet Kublar.

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…

Takeover is the thrilling aftermath of the final, desperate execution of Article Nineteen and the looming rebirth of the Legion and the galaxy itself as Galaxy’s Edge: Season Two begins!

Great writing, Poor narration

So excited for season 2 and the great writing continues! But please...

Give us back RC Bray! Ray porter sounds like a bored detective recalling case that happened 15 years ago.

It's Chun not Ca-Hoon

This book was really great I always enjoy this series. Jason on Spock and Nick Cole never cease to amaze. I just wish that re Porter would have listened to RC Bray pronounce everyone's name. Not knowing how to pronounce the main character of the other 5 books is something that's very irritating.

Awesome story but bring back Bray, this narrator sucks. The mispronunciation of the original characters name almost ruined it for me.

Changing to Porter from R.C. Bray?!

If you’re this far along. You’re used to Bray’s voice acting and it so damned good. This is killing me. I’m going to try to make it through, I don’t hate Porter’s voice acting, but he isn’t RC Bray...

I’ll update once I’ve finished listening, if I make it.

Great kickoff to season 2 with one slight

I will say I loved this book and could not put it down. I ate this story up and can not wait for more.

Ray Porter’s acting was stellar as usual as well.

My only slight misgiving is that I was slightly disappointed to see that Ray Porter didn’t apparently have the chance to listen to the way RC Bray pronounces Chhun’s name or how Bray voiced a certain character that returns for a cameo from the first season. I was hoping he would be given samples to maintain some continuity of characters between the performances, but I assume this was a timetable thing.

That said Porter’s work is stellar as usual and I can not WAIT for more!

An excellent start to Season 2 of Galaxy's Edge

Takeover is set in the aftermath of the death of Goth Sullus and the Republic. The stories of Carter, a former Legionnaire, and Bowie, a former spy, intertwine as their new employer tries to wrest control of Kublar from what’s left of Republic forces.

Carter’s story is pure military fiction. Raids, battles, and gunfights burn through his tale. Any reader who enjoys run-and-gun fiction will get their money’s worth just from Carter.

The plot of Bowie’s exploits is more understated, but just as riveting. This is pure cloak-and-dagger storytelling, and it’s done masterfully. There’s a lot of action here, but it’s short and violent when compared to Carter’s firehose of non-stop combat.

Both stories are done by masters of the art. The plots flow beautifully, and I found myself glued to Takeover as Ray Porter read it to me. His narration was spot on, changing tone and cadence when switching between the two plot lines.

If you’ve enjoyed the first season of Galaxy’s Edge, you’ll love Takeover’s introduction to Season Two.

What a great ride we are getting on again

Jason and Nick have done it again!

This book is starting us off on another great ride with season 2 of Galaxys Edge. More action, more KTF, and intrigue.

I love Ray Porters work and he does a great job reading a lot of the side stories in GE. My only complaint is that I do not know if he listened to RC Brays reading of season 1 and chose to pronounce some characters name drastically differently than what the community accepts as the standard pronunciation.

Fantastic Entry in this Series

I was initially not thrilled with the new narrator, however, he grew on me quickly.

Perhaps the conversational/editorial tone of this book is better suited to his talents than the Requiem for Medusa title he also voiced.

The story is intriguing and keeps you listening / turning pages. As always a few familiar faces make an appearance, but we are now on another wild goose chase that I am excited to be a part of.

The overall tone is fairly comedic and as previously stated, "editorialized" in a funny way, as if you are riding along the story as the internal voice of the character instead of being loosely told what they are thinking or feeling. It's a cool way to tell the story and lets the authors give a lot more "personality" to the story itself and certainly the individual characters.

I've yet to read a bad book from these two, this is no exception. They've flipped the narrative a bit on some familiar humanoids and I found myself at the end feeling like "why do I suddenly like so-and-so" which is always cool. They found a way to endear certain characters to you that you would otherwise despise if you're familiar with the story already.

Well done, can't wait for the next one.

Disappointing start to season 2

Suffered through the first 5 chapters and couldn't continue. Narrator is so dull and sounds thoroughly uninterested but mostly the story has failed to captivate me.
Very disappointed as the season 1 titles are all fantastic and R C Bray narrated it brilliantly

just Ok

clearly just another build up story laying the ground for the rest of season 2 , didn't really make sense until the end.
goth sullas seems to have been replaced fairly quickly . good story though a bit drawn out in places and takes a bit long to get to the point. clearly being based on the middle east with the Muslims playing the part of the ghee but we got that for a while now and again its very pro american veteran/military type of writing. think authors are trying to hard to base it on recent conflicts and yet make it original but still borrow from star wars, LOTR and even Peter Pan through out the series, hope the next book is better

Producers need to do better when there is a change of narrator in a long running series, Ray Porter is good enough but they all should have at least checked RC Brays Pronunciation seeing as he has done 5 parts already bit annoying and amaturish..,if thats even a word!lol when you hear chhu-hooon

Great continuation

I love Galaxy’s Edge books and read the Takeover series last year in parts but listening made it so much better, I am not a huge fan of Ray Porter and can’t listen to him narrating the Tyrus Rechs books past the first chapter, he has improved (or my standards have dropped) I would advise him to listen to the RC Bray GE books so he doesn’t not continue his bastardisation of the characters names

story was ok if you view it as a fill in...

Story was not as dynamic as maybe we are all used to with the legion andthis series, but it was OK and a possible good lead in to the next season 2. Lots of people not liking the narrator and did take spme getting used to after RC Bray, but by end of it I didnt dislike tbh. Is probably well labelled as a 0.5 ook in that its an interim to he next season. Am addicted to this series

Fun Stuff.

A band of mostly ex-legion private contractors with questionable pasts hired by a wealthy businessman who harbours a secret agenda.

A savage desert planet, torn asunder by warring alien tribal factions who covet the dark power of ancient, lethal human tech, give no quarter and play both sides of the coin. It could just as well be Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya.

Hard choices are to be made, rivers of blood will flow and no one is quite sure why or who the bad guys are, including the reader.

But who cares? The action is relentless, the weapon porn hot, and the story contains just enough decent characterisation to give it texture.

Ray Porter’s usual dead-pan but nuanced narrative delivery compliments the material.

Gripping SciFi

The Galaxy's Edge series is among the best Science Fiction I have ever listened to. Normally R.C. Bray narrates the books and does outstanding job. This time it is Ray Porter and although I was sceptical he could pull it off, he does an amazing job and really brings the book and characters to life. If you haven't already tried this series, do yourself a favour and start from the first book and make sure you give it a chance. The books can be a little slow starting, but after the first quarter they take you on a roller coaster ride of gritty military SciFi!

Monotone

It tog a lot of time to finish because it was performed so monotone and different from the previous one that I drifted out all the time and couldn't remember what he said. A real shame. You should republish it with RC Bray.

Good for sending you to sleep

Season 1 was brilliant, but this was utterly boring. I like the narrator and have listened to other stuff he's done in the past but I'm just not sure if this was a good fit and the story itself is very slow going.

It was fine

After listening to the rest with r.c bray, bringing all the characters to life and making me feel immersed in the story and universe, changing to ray porter was a shock and i didn't feel like there was much change to the characters they all felt the same. I found myself wanting to skip chapters and story just because i felt that the performance and narration dull. Honestly if this was a stand alone book i would have skipped it. Felt i had to listen to it as its a part of the series.

Missing something

Good story but I felt it lacked the galaxy spanning and edge of your seat action aspects from previous books and, it was a little disappointing that I wasn't reunited with certain characters but it was enjoyable. I'm a fan of Ray Porter, love his narration of the Bobiverse books, but I would love it for Ray to have pronounced certain names the same as R C Bray had in series 1. I enjoyed Ray Porter's performance. It can be distracting when a series narrator changes but I feel his style suited this story well.

A good start to season 2

I like the narrator in other books. But when switching narrators mid series it is important to keep pronunciation the same. Every time he reads out the name "Chhun" I think a little part of me dies inside.

FELL ASLEEP

If the previous books are anything to go by then this story will be just as good, however;... I couldn't follow the relaxed narrative with little to no expression of points, excitement or situational moments.. Sorry guys, almost made it to chapter 2 before removing a paid book. Good luck with the rest of series 2.

New timeline, new narrator, great story.

Good story and great narration.
It took me a few minutes to adjust to the new narrator (and his style) for this series.
The timeline for this book happens a number of years after the end of book 5, so that helped me adjust to a new set of characters and story line.

After a couple of chapters, the narration really starts to shine, bringing the new characters to life.

another great book

loved the book but Ray needs to listen to how the other names where pronounced it took me a few times at hearing the names to work out who he was meaning, as in I have listened to the same names of the men since the first battle at Kublar and now hearing them in this book and they are pronounced differently made if annoying to listen to
