Publisher's Summary

The best-selling military space opera: the complete series in one box set.

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’ 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.

Box set contains:

  1. Supercarrier
  2. Juggernaut
  3. Reckoning

Excellent!!!

Bartlett has created a complex society based on multiple species that compels the reader to be drawn into his worlds. Excellent narration, Boyett has outdone himself. I’ll be listening to this trilogy again and again!

Woeful

I should start by saying that I really like Mark Boyett’s narration...he was just great in the Undying Mercenaries series; but here even he struggles to carry a storyline (and I use the term loosely) which has plot holes, unbelievable dialogue, and sounds like it has been written by a teenager.

Count the number of times you hear ‘firing solution’...it’s like the author thought ‘that sounds cool, I’m gonna use that...to death’. The captain of the Supercarrier is so flawed he would never receive a command, our hero has been busted down ranks and exiled yet still finds himself in tactical meetings with the ship’s command within days of arriving, as well as leading a marine assault party and becoming their top fighter pilot and lead negotiator. OOO-kay. The dialogue is so cliched that it’s just plain cheesy. Inner monologues simply don’t work as a device and make the characters sound neurotic rather than giving them depth, and the whole: ‘lets threaten them with a nuke to get them to become our allies’ (which, spoiler alert - they do) is just laughable. This book really made me appreciate BV Larson, Dennis E Taylor, Jason Anspach and Nick Cole!

Fun in spots but plot has holes

There are so many points where characters act irrationally just to set up a new plot complication. No species seems to have planned for damage on their warships. Space suits appear to be pretty much novelty items.

Great story with some depth

This author had done a great job of putting together a whole universe of characters, species, and worlds. I love how these stories develop and end, and would reccomend you pickup a copy.

A Wild Ride

Take a wild ride through this military science fiction trilogy. “Supercarrier” has it all and will keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. The story runs at a breakneck pace twisting and turning like a roller coaster and the characters are brought to life keeping you engaged and caring about what happens to them. The narration by Mark Boyett is bang on breathing life into all the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and can’t wait to start on the next one.

Well Done Story !!!

I was very impressed by Mark Boyett’s narration that brought the characters and the action to life in this exciting space opera series. I am especially pleased at having the complete series to listen to and enjoy non-stop! I think that if you appreciate good science-fiction, this series will be very satisfying!

The writer is skilled at his craft, which will be immediately noted in the fast and sustained pace from beginning to end. This story line will draw the listener deep into the book. It is very well done, fabulously narrated, and won’t fail to leave a lasting impression.

very slow, with some big plot jumps. I'm afraid that I dumped it before finishing book 1.

not my cup of tea

I got bored with this book (these books) after an hour, the story lacked interesting characters, and the storyline was the same as many of its genre, no recommendation from me.

A complex story

I recieved a review copy of this book. It presents an excellent story following a chaotic multisided conflict, and the struggle against seemingly impossible odds. The narration is excellent and there is significant depth to the story. My only disappointment is that it was difficult to visualise the scale of the space battles from the descriptions in the book.

Great value, great trilogy - 5 Stars

Scott Bartlett has done us all a favour by releasing this on Audible, its the box set including his books Supercarier, Juggernaut and Reckoning so you're saving credits on buying each individual book and also not having to worry about pesky cliffhangers in between books, so thanks Scott! These three books make up the Ixan Prophecies trilogy.

I discovered Scott's books after reading Spacers and was glad to find that he had quite the back catalogue of books for me to catch up on and so I started here.

It's a military sci-fi space opera, which I am discovering is quite a large genre and I am very much getting into this niche.

The book introduces us to Captain Keyes and his Supercarier the Providence which is old school tech in an advanced 'dark' tech universe. Were also introduced to Vin Husher who after being demoted from captain of his own ship is sent to the Providence as penance for insubordination.

Husher makes the best of it and learns from Keyes who is shaping up to be his mentor.

Were also introduced to various other characters and several species of alien to help build the universe that this book takes place in.

The Ixan Prophecies referenced in the subtitle is a literal set of Prophecies set out by the Ixans who are a race of aliens whom fought the other sentient races in the first galactic war. And as the Prophecies start coming to pass our heroes must attempt to avoid war with pretty much everyone else whilst stopping the Prophecies from coming true.

The book(s) spans a lot of time and space and there are plenty of action packed space battles as well as some ground based manouvers. As I was listening I was struck with how well Bartlett has done to keep each fight fresh and engaging.

The narrator is Mark Boyett who does an excellent job of reading the story and doing the voices for different characters. When I first heard the voice of the character Fesky I wasn't sold and listening to that voice out of context it sounds crazy but it soon grew on me and by the end of the book it fits the character perfectly. You'll understand what I mean when you listen.

I don't really want to say too much more and give away the plot, it's 26+ hours in total so should last you a while whilst commuting, working out or cleaning or whatever you do whilst listening. For a single audible credit I can't think of much better value for a book!

I really enjoyed the trilogy and am going straight from here to Scotts Mech Wars series which is sort of a semi sequel.

Just Silly

Peopled by childish characters who continually make foolish decisions, this story has a plot that makes even less sense. I found myself sympathising with the bad guys simply because the heroes were such jerks. I thought this was quite frustrating to listen to. The narrator was very good, as usual.
