After the battle in which the men of the destroyer Walker and their Lemurian allies repelled the savage Grik, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy is shocked by the arrival of a strange ship captained by one Commaner Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy - an island-nation populated by the descendants of British East Indiamen swept through the rift centuries before.

With the Walker undergoing repairs, Reddy already has a great deal on his hands. For the Grik will return, and Reddy will need all hands on deck to fight them off when they next attack. But Jenks's uncertain loyalties make Reddy question whether he can trust the man. As tension between the Allies and the Imperials mount, Reddy will come to realize that his suspicions are not misplaced - and that a greater danger than the Grik is closer than he ever suspected.

    " Good Story...enjoyed the alternate world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricrk patrick | 1/29/2014

    " 4th book in series , I will want to read the fifth when it comes out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Rauber | 1/13/2014

    " Book 4 in the Destroyermen series. This one focuses less on action and more on intrigue. Story doesn't really pick up until halfway through, but then it really sucked me in. And as the 4th book in the series, of course it ends in a cliffhanger. I'll be picking up book #5 for sure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/5/2014

    " The American-Lemurian Alliance goes on the offensive with the Grik and must deal with not-so-friendly New British. This is a great series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Bequette | 12/29/2013

    " Excellent addition to the series, bringing threads together and laying groundwork for future stories "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 12/27/2013

    " I love this author and serial novel. I'm hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Brase | 12/24/2013

    " Taylor Anderson has a talent for telling a story with emotion and well drafted characters of all species. Since he has been including the Grik side of the story, which began in the second book I believe, these stories take on a whole new dimension. I will say I am looking forward to number six. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas Knowles | 12/23/2013

    " The latest in Taylor Anderson's "Destoyermen" series does not disappoint--it's non-stop action set in a dangerous universe that echoes those created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G. Wells, and Jules Verne--but it's written in a lean, stylish, modern prose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim-mike | 12/1/2013

    " A bit of a slow start, but still interesting enough once things get going. I'm not happy about the lack of closure, but I guess that's to be expected in a series like this. Other authors have often managed some closure in each book of a series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 10/29/2013

    " just so bloody good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danny Sullivan | 9/30/2013

    " Kept me entertained. Usually, an alternative history series gets worse and worse after the second book. But Anderson has found a way to keep introducing new aspects that keeps things interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicholas | 6/11/2013

    " Enjoyed it, but not quite four stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 6/9/2013

    " I had been worried that Anderson's plot was stagnating with a constant "kill-the-lizard-with-the-amazing-American-firepower" -- fine for the first three books, but I didn't want another. He introduced some very interesting new plot twists and I am looking forward to the next book or two! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy Davie | 5/10/2013

    " This was a bridge novel. Yes, there was lots of action and I enjoyed reading it but nothing was really settled. Kidnappings, battles, sneak attacks, reclamation, dishonorable actions...and we're left hanging... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marquis Crocker | 4/11/2013

    " Good book, ready to read the next in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth | 10/19/2012

    " I'm so glad I waited to read this til the next book came out... This was an even bigger cliff-hanger ending than usual for Anderson. Potentially very frustrating, to really be in the storyline, only to find that it's finished in another book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich Van Ollefen | 8/16/2012

    " Half a book, really. While the whole Destroyermen series is an ongoing tale, this one stops at a much less natural place than the previous books. Happily, the next book is already written, so I won't have to wait. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Reeser | 6/5/2012

    " Always fun to read this series. Anderson has done a good job of taking a quirky idea and expanding it into an epic story much like WWII. It's not quite as big, but he is keeping it fresh with new elements always being added. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Morales | 9/2/2011

    " Good book, it's a great saga, perhaps he repeat a bit too much in the books with descriptions, etc. "

    " The Empire representatives have arrived, the treachery begins. "
