Overview

Taylor Anderson’s enthralling New York Times bestselling series of alternate history continues as game-changing revelations upend the Grand Alliance in a potentially cataclysmic war.
 
Ever since the USS Walker came from another world war to defy the terrifying Grik and diabolical Dominion, Matt Reddy and his crew have given their all to protect the oppressed Lemurians. But with the Walker in desperate need of repairs just as the Grik’s First General is poised to strike, Reddy is desperate.
 
With more enemies than ever before arrayed against them, the crew of the Walker needs new allies. That means combing the lethal wilds of Madagascar to find the Lemurians’ fabled ancestors, as well as the enigmatic dwellers east of the Pass of Fire. But what Reddy’s crew unearths may be more than they can handle—discoveries so shattering they could tilt the balance of the war in either direction. 
 
But Reddy’s greatest adversary is from his past: a madman named Kurokawa whose single-minded mission of revenge will shake the Alliance to its core and raise the stakes to the most personal and terrifying levels Reddy has ever faced.

Once again, Taylor Anderson has lived up to the high standards he has set for himself in this novel. The story is moved along at a nice pace, and he makes sure to update us on all the theaters in this massive world he has created. The enemy continues to innovate and create (Grik aircraft carriers anyone?) and new enemies loom ominously on the horizon. While there were not enough battles for some, I would suggest they brush up on their history and see how many months went by during the Pacific campaign without a major battle. He is exploring and painting this world in loving detail and it shows! True fans will not be disappointed. Eagerly looking forward to the next installment.

I've read every book, and much like volume #7, this one is a major disappointment. Not only did we have to wait almost 1 full year for the follow up to "Straights of Hell", but the author tasks readers with 412 pages that (approximately) cover a mere 17 days of events. The bulk of text could be condensed into perhaps 5 paragraphs, and you would know almost as much as complete book. Questions begin to loom of how many volumes are envisioned, how many more stinkers readers will have to endure, and how much more money will we need to invest to reach the finale. Your readers deserve better sir.

I have read all his books and enjoyed them but this one is boring...too much prattle and not enough battle.

After 11 books you would think the story would start to get old. But no, Anderson finds ways to not only keep the story fresh and moving but also gripping. The story line moves to new areas on this one and i'm looking forward to seeing where they end up. Part of me wishes Anderson would write other book away from the Destroyerman books. But why should he when he does this so well?
