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.

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 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.
