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.

Promising start

If the next two books are as good then this will be an excellent triolgy.

As with most narrated books it has taken me quite a few goes to finish it, I find them quite soporific.

The story is well told and the characterisation is great.

No doubt the next two will follow, though I have several other titles to listen to first.

Just not gripping,

I have given up after 17 chapters. The narrator hasn't wowed me with this one.

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.

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.
