Summary

The Galaxy's Never Had It Darker 

Armed with new tech that could revolutionize space combat, Captain Husher must now try to convince the Interstellar Union to implement it in time to defend against the godlike Progenitors.   

When a new alien ally shows up in the galaxy, it’s a mixed blessing. Their military might could prove a boon to the war effort, but what secrets lurk in their past, and how might they shape galactic society for centuries to come?   

It's a lot for one supercarrier captain to contend with, especially when tensions are escalating aboard the IGS Vesta herself.   

Husher can only stand on his well-worn principles:   

Do right by his crew.   

Do right by the galaxy, even when the galaxy fights him every step of the way.  

If death comes anyway, make it an honorable one, and make it count.   

Download Pride of the Fleet today and experience the explosive next installment in this fast-paced military science fiction series.

Start as you mean to go on

The first book may have been a little slow to get going, but this second book more than makes up for it.

Finally, Captain Husher has gown a backbone in his dealings with the politicians. That said, I don't think I can quite come to terms with a floating city come warship, but, hey, it could happen.

This is definitely a series worth following and I look forward to the next instalment.

Please note before starting.

You will want to listen to Mech Wars: The Complete Series before starting this book. This will give you the back story of Jake Price.

A universe at war.

Picking up shortly after the end of the first book, Pride of the Fleet, the second book in the Ixan Legacy series, finds are heroes dealing with the fallout of their last battle. Despite there being an obvious external threat, the various factions within the collected government seem almost hellbent on destroying themselves as they teeter on the edge of civil war. Once again I enjoyed how real the various political factions felt, often mirroring the infuriating squabbles we witness on a daily basis between real world political parties, where the parties are more concerned with 'winning' their point of view than dealing with more concrete threats. There is a ton of action in this one, and that ending. I could completely picture that..in fact if it were a movie I could imagine them just ending with a shot of a certain character, no dialogue would be needed.

I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Action escalates, the plot thickens

This sequel is more than "more of the same" from the 1st excellent installment. More story line twists and turns, more action, and more characters entering the stage. This is my kind of action adventure, in Space! The narrator continues to impress.

great story and powerful meaning

I love it. listened to it twice already. Mark boyett is my favorite narrator so that helps but these books don't really need his help. love how it's relevant to today's society and the speeches given by the captain are outstanding. thank you Scott Bartlett and Mark Boyett

Heavy on action

This book never got boring and had many parallels to current events in our world. Sometimes I like all of the technical background and explanations. Other times I just want a fast moving story with a lot of action. I can take those leaps of faith in regards to the theoretical stuff like the multiple universes or popping in and out of subspace.

Where will I find a masterpiece now ?

Only a poet could write my feelings about those awesome series’s that Scott Boyett have written, I don’t believe that I’ll ever find such a great imagination ever again!
The truth is that only one review needed to be written and then copy/paste it to every one of his books because they are all perfection !
Coupled with the narrator Mark Boyett no less then an audiobooks masterpiece series’s where created.
Like I said if I only was a poet I probably could a written the perfect review ever but I’m not so trust me those books are impossible to put down, it’s just impossible not to fall in love with all the books in that beautiful universe that he created and all the surprises and twists in each of those books.

Full heartedly, sure that all will agree with me,
ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED !!!
