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.

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.

The adventure continues !

The Ixan Prophecies Trilogy

Is an Awesome Future

Juggernaut is exactly what I expected it to be as book 2 of a trilogy, we get the action, the same beautiful universe and same aliens from book one and a perfect continuation making it feel like you never moved to a new book which is rare ( others always forcing you to fill up the gap between books ).
Now after the action it built the settings for the 3rd book “Reckoning “, the finally of this beautiful made story.

Juggernaut

The second book in the Ixan Prophecies trilogy follows on from the first book Supercarrier and we continue to observe the carrier and it's crew on their quest to save the universe and stop the Prophecies coming true.

Captain Keyes and Vin Husher are again the main characters and they're further developed and fleshed out as their journey continues.

If I'm being completely honest I binged both this and Reckoning the final book in the trilogy and I can't really remember which book was which now, only that I enjoyed them both and couldn't wait to see how it would wrap up.

One thing I noticed as I was listening is how hard it must be to write a space battle, like to describe it in such detail that the reader can visualise what's going on, during this book I realised that my imagination has crafted pictures of the different ships and even the weapons they fire and I think that's a real credit to the author and the narrator that this happened without me really noticing.

Mark Boyett is again on fine form as narrator and I can't recommend this enough.
