Publisher's Summary

Captain Keyes has succeeded in forging an uneasy alliance - at the cost of making some powerful enemies.

Now, he's wanted throughout the galaxy. Even worse: they're after his ship. His enemies inside the UHF have realized that only the Providence stands even a slight chance of stopping them.

The Ixan Prophecies continue to come true, and humanity's doom is taking shape. The UHF ignores the mounting public panic, obsessed instead with waging prolonged war against a species that was recently an ally.

While the UHF attacks its allies, the real enemy is approaching. For Captain Keyes, there remains only one way to make sure there's something left of humanity to fight the coming Ixan onslaught: he must take down the UHF.

The juggernaut is coming.

"The Ixan Prophecies - Parables of Pogroms"

At the start of this book we are treated to newly-elected President Sonja Hurst putting on display her propensity for outrageous campiness. First, when informed that Ochrim's explanation of the universe's destruction with the continued use for wormhole creation and that it could happen in as little as 40 years and should be stopped being used, she muses, "I’ll be dead by then anyway. Or near enough." and ignores the danger. Soon thereafter, she upset with a crowd of demonstrators who are blocking a direct path to a meeting, she angrily says, "Why do the guards and police have guns if they aren’t going to use them?” and then orders the officers and guards to "gun them down" which they then obligingly do.

The story moves on from the comedic outrageousness to the more conventional kind where the human space fleet proceeds on its quest to eliminate pesky alien species and the Providence and its crew desperately attempting to prevent it. During the battles, while several marines are killed, as would be expected, regrettably, the Providence loses one of its finest, which took me by surprise and added a poignant pause to all of the death and destruction be waged.

There was one section where the author mentioned that since humans had ruined Earth's environment to sustain life, Mars had been terraformed to now have an ecosystem not dissimilar to old Earth. I found this confusing, for if technology had advanced such that they could terraform Mars, why could they not do the same to Earth?

Even so, the story continues with a multitude of story arcs, sub-plots, intrigue and betrayals to keep book 2 quite enjoyable.

interesting characters loose to basic mind games

overall the narators do a great job showing the uniqueness and dedication of the characters. however when it comes to seeing through basic mind games and verifying that the conveniently escaped pow form a race that excels at war and mind games with full access to your ship and the ability to carry a sidearm with VIP's aboard leads to the reader screaming at the characters as they have unexplainable lapses in judgement and protocol.

Even Better than the First Book

I enjoyed this one even more than Supercarrier. I'm a sucker for massive space battles, and this book doesn't disappoint on that front. The story has kept me engaged the entire time. I'm headed straight into the 3rd book because I need to know how things wind up.

A great follow-up to Traitor and Supercarrier

A great follow-up to Traitor and Supercarrier, and the Narator was great. Can't wait to see how the next book shall be.

Loving the story

I have the honour of getting a free copy of this book for a honest review from Scott. I will also say that I have enjoyed read the full series of books on kindle. As for this one there is a lot of going off, and the narrator does a good job of helping you through the story. This is the second volume of the Ixian Prophecy series, puts you right in the middle of a sprawling universe on the brink of a war that could end the existence of most of its' inhabitants. Many threads, many viewpoints, all dealing with either starting or avoiding the ultimate war. Highly recommended.

Good Listen

Some of the plot is not believable. No one would put a "traitor" in control of a ship much less s weapon. Overall the series keeps me engaged.

Ignore the negative reviews

I saw a number of negative reviews regarding slow plot, and no character development, and i have to say i wonder if these people read the same book. I very much enjoyed the quick pacing (as compared to many much longer and slower books i read) and I have a connection with the characters, as well as the overall story. You should give this a try. It kind of reminds me of the wing commander books.

Birds and fish?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

It got a little stupid with all of the bird and fish references.

Which scene was your favorite?

I didn't have one.
