Stuck in an alternate universe during World War II, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy of the U.S.S. Walker has found an unlikely but invaluable ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win.

However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue. For when Reddy and Jenks report the situation to the New Britain Company, they are met with scorn and disbelief. It soon becomes obvious that the ruthless Company is attempting to overthrow the Imperial Throne - and that someone involved knows where Sandra and Rebecca are. From the halls of power to the ballrooms of the nobility, Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day.

    " This latest instalment in the destroyerman series was an all round great read and I can't wait to read more in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manny | 2/6/2014

    " This was the most expansive book in the series. Following six different story leads, Anderson's alternate history tale weaves it way across a world that is both frightening and fascinating. The character list grows with more diverse humans and ...? Fun read with a storyline that keeps you reading (rather then watching TV, sleeping, or getting to work on time!). What Next? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin | 2/1/2014

    " Anderson continues his fun fast paced story in multiple venues, while keeping the reader engaged and in suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/29/2014

    " The fight against the Grik, slows while major attention is placed on The Walker's voyage to the Imperial Homelands. The scope of characters has grown so that it is not possible to provide the detail of happenings on all story threads. For example, the SS-19 was sent down to 400 feet depth by the Talaud caused wave, we do not find out what happened until it shows up to save Sandra, Rebecca, Silva, and party. Would like the story of how it succeeded in rising. Ah Well maybe in the next book. "

    " Bit better than the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 12/25/2013

    " The Alliance continues to push west against the Grik and the tangled politics of New Britain and the Dominion drags the Alliance into deadly games in the east. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 12/21/2013

    " Easy read, interesting world. Not really what I was looking for, but I'm enjoying it anyway "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Rauber | 12/7/2013

    " 5th in the series, I've grown to become a big fan. The war against the Grik marches on, and a new enemy appears to the East. This series is certainly no literary classic, just fun. Eagerly anticipate the next book, since many of the storylines remain open. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thomas | 11/28/2013

    " The entire series is excellent! Taylor Anderson is incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate Hiatt | 11/7/2013

    " Another solid book from Taylor Anderson. If you like this series, you will not be disappointed. Waring, "Salty" military language, fyi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill | 10/29/2013

    " The saga is beginning to get a bit stretched, but still a good read. He's laid the groundwork for multiple campaigns, which may become seperate series as they progress. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George Riggs | 8/24/2013

    " Still enjoying the read..Keeps the pages turning. "

    " To good to put down "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 3/31/2013

    " seemed to lag at times the ending seemed a bit rushed, otherwise a good read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/14/2013

    " Average offering in this series - too many of our key characters went off in very different directions and it was hard to stay invested in each one when you got back to them..fortunately they seem to be heading back toward each other in the last few chapters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Bequette | 1/2/2012

    " Excellent thumb-buning page turner! The action in this one is mostly nature versus man, but there combat actions separated by the distances of the Pacific. While this novel is good on its own, it is setting up plot lines subsequent books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted | 11/21/2011

    " Taylor's books are the perfect way to while away a few hours and become lost in the world he has created. The action is compelling and the characters believeable. Taylor is my new favorite AH/SF author. I'll be a fan for what I hope is years to come. "
