Publisher's Summary

Captain Keyes is loved by the public but hated by Command. He captains the UHS Providence, an aging supercarrier and the last human ship not dependent on dark tech - technology humanity has used to rule over the galaxy since barely defeating the Ixa in the First Galactic War.

Dominance has come at a cost. Over the decades, old allies have grown resentful, and when dark tech itself fails, Captain Keyes's predictions start coming true: those old allies are now enemies.

But Keyes is not the only one proven right. As the galaxy plunges into war, the Ixan Prophecies are being fulfilled, one by one. Humanity's oldest enemy is on the rise, with weaponry never seen before.

The fate of the galaxy now depends on Captain Keyes, his tired ship, and his oddball crew. It doesn't pay to be right.

    "okay but not good enough"

    performance was great as always from Mark. this story only survived one level of questions, and frequently barely made sense. the story jumped around too much to follow at times and lacked character depth and background. I am disappointed enough to not want to know what happens later.

    "Was completely lost and didn't care."

    Normally I have no issues with any book's. But found this one hard to follow. Even restarted halfway through, thinking it was me. It wasn't. I was still lost and didn't care about anyone in the book.

    Story
    "Excellent multi-faceted character creations"

    A somewhat flippant, recently demoted 1st lieutenant who is the son of an infamous traitor father. A quirky captain of the lone human massive starship that doesn't use dark tech for worm hole travel. A no-nonsense marine sergeant who becomes delusional after experiencing her own death through an invasive mind control simulation. A bipedal fighter-jock bird species called Wingers along with an almost prescient fish-like species called ... wait for it ... Fin. These and other make for a highly entertaining cast as they attempt to save the galaxy from the end times predicted in the Ixan Prophecies.

    "A little too political"

    I love sci Fi because it's an escape from the daunting politics of today. This book has way too many political undertones and obvious references from our current wars to racism and more. A good story line, but the constant back and forth on current affairs is a little too much for me. I hope the second book is not like this.

    Mark Boyett as always was magnificent especially with the winger voices.

    Story
    "I have no idea what is going on."

    I really don't know who the primary protagonist is, and the characters are flat like a cookie cutter minion. Performance was good, but the story couldn't hold water. It could have used editing and actually focused on a character, but what is done is done. I will be refunding this for my single credit back.

    Story
    "Liberal Indoctrination Run Amok"

    Unless you're completely stupid you'll recognize the thinly veiled liberal propaganda infused into this book. If you're a conservative it will rankle throughout. It has the obligatory "evil corporation" that will "sacrifice humanity" just for more profits. The "rebels" are the good guys fighting against the "corrupt government" doing the dark bidding of said evil corporation. The female version of a Trump-esque "xenophobic" politician that wins on a "humans first" political platform. There is the complex Ixan alien race which are clearly the Muslims and the race if falcon-people aliens that = the down-trodden "minorities." (They're even a badd-ass fighting Matriarchy to keep the feminists happy). And their compatriot-race the all-wise fish-people. Some environmentalist rhetoric is tossed in for good measure. Sssssnnnnnzzzzzzzz.

    The writing is okay … though a bit overly dramatic. However, my eyes are worn out from rolling so much at every leftist idealogical cliché trotted out. Truly tiresome.

    It is likely most SF authors I like hold left-leaning political views, but they don't usually parade them throughout their work as this writer does. I won't be getting the rest of the books in the series, … but I'm sure I won't be missing much as I've already encountered this "plot" in every leftist, preachy, B.S. Hollywood product.

    If you're a conservative you will hate that you funded this writers drivel. If you apolitical, you still might find the clichés too thick and heavy handed.

    "I didn't get the hook..."

    The synopsis read like it would be great but somehow I didn't catch on or get hooked. I fell asleep listening to this book 4 different times & cannot remember the main characters name even to this day...
    Maybe you'll like it but for me it was "meh."

    "This book is horrible"

    The story line is convoluted and improbable. The characters are shallow and undeveloped. I couldn't get through the first half of the book before I returned it.

    "Supercarrier"

    Too many avians, screwy plot. However, it is always a pleasure to listen to Mark Boyett. Looking forward to more interesting Sci Fi fantasies !
