Publisher's Summary

The heart of a hero.

In the wilds of a jungle planet, the Legion fights in brutal combat as Republic marines fly their SLICS from one tragedy to the next. 

H292, a repurposed warbot, shows the heart of a hero as he wades into the battle not to destroy - but to save.

So cool

Another loose end from the main story ark tied up in remarkable fashion. You need to listen to the main stories first.

Talk about an emotional rollercoaster this book has everything. It may be short but the ride it takes you on is second to none.

A war bot with heart!

Science fiction is far from my favorite genre, but this short story is special. Having R.C. Bray narrate it makes it even more special. This one is a must listen.

BRINGS A TEAR TO THE EYE

As a Marine Combat Vet who can not forget the math of war either, Anspach and Cole nail down what so many of us wish was possible. To erase those memories and end the sleepless nights.

From a Newcomer to the Series

This was my first exposure to the Galaxy's Edge universe and, I must say, this was a great story. Great narration and writing. The Tin Man's story is very touching

Just a tool

Short, simple, superb and strangely emotional.
This is a prequel to the excellent Galaxy''s Edge series and gives background to the character KRS88.
Read by the fine voice actor, R.C.Bray
Highly recommended

Omfg. I got serious feelz from this one

Right. Being a tight so and so I did not want to spend a credit on a short story. So when audible gave it for free I was happy to catch up being such a huge GE fan.

No spoilers. But if I ever wondered if I could really love a robot, the answer is yes. Yes yes yes

I really like how they went into the story of a character who you wouldn’t really expect to enjoy.

Excellent Short Story

More enjoyable than I expected and dare I write emotive.
'Tin Man' shame there weren't more stories to expect with him but the short story has peaked my interest in Galaxy's Edge series. R. C Bray on point as always (quietly hoped for a Blooper Reel but it may have taken from the story so understand why not included)
Worth the small price,

Short and sweet, but a thing of beauty...Go Crash!

I've read all of the other parts of the Galaxy's edge series, Just listened to this while mowing the lawn...Loved it. Great to get Crash's back-story. Almost got a bit emotional :)… And thanks as ever to RCB for an outstanding read... You the Man!

Great novella

It's pretty difficult to convey an emotional story about an inanimate object / robot, but this was written truly well. So much, that I will most likely start reading the main series.

Totally Radical

Galaxy’s Edge has filled the gap in my want for sci-fi! This series has me on the edge of my headphones, I’ve found myself often cheering for the Leej after sequences in the story and have not watched TV in weeks since starting the series. Absolutely killer story and absolutely HOOKED!

Unexpected emotions

Never did I think I would be on an emotional roller coaster due to a warbot, but that shows the skill in the writing I guess.
Great back story that shows just how deeply everything in the galaxys edge series is connected
