Publisher Description

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians—a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik.

The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle. Luckily, they are not alone. Reddy finally finds Mahan, the other destroyer that passed through the rift. Together, the two American ships will teach the Lemurians to fight and stand against the bloodthirsty Grik—or so they think.

For there is another vessel that does not belong on these strange seas—the massive Japanese battle cruiser Amagi, the very ship that Walker was fleeing from when the rift took them. Like Mahan, it followed them through. And now Amagi is in the hands of the Grik.

  • William Dufris narrates this sci-fi saga with an impressive swagger.

  • “The second adventure of Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the good crew of Asiatic Fleet destroyer Walker—swept from World War II into an alternate world as violent as the one they left—is even better than the excellent Into the Storm.”

    - Booklist (starred review)
  • “Anderson throws in tense land battles against overwhelming odds, a massive typhoon and a phenomenal aerial duel, but despite the pyrotechnics, at heart this novel is about how honor and ideals can bend or break under the stressful, life-and-death conditions of total war.”

    " Captain Mathew Reddy and the crew of the destroyer U.S.S. Walker are back in the next book in the Destoyermen series by Talor Anderson. Once again masterfully narrated by William Dufris, book 2 in the series introduces you to the integral characters and sets the stage for an epic struggle! The narration and production of this audiobook version are superb, once again, and the story rolls along! "
