This can't end here, there has to be more. When is the next book coming out?
I love this series, this book was not the best in the series, but it was well written as I have come to except from Taylor Anderson. As always this book left me wanting the next book to come out. Generally I hate series because of this fact, but this one has pulled me in. The narrative was what I have come to expect.
This is hard to answer since they are all great, personally I love the time period these characters are set in. World War two was a hard time for America and this book demonstrates the determination that the men and women of this time period possess.
I liked them all.
They better not make a movie, they would ruin the story, it's way too big for the movies.
Silva-The captain is great as are the generals but this character seems to just hit home. He sometimes seems dumb but that is far from the reality. EVERYONE should sift the characters and be prepared for a wonder ride.
The narator is perfect and needs to stay on. I bet he wouldn't quit anyhow because he wants to turn each page and see what happens next.
If everyone on Audible could pick one book to start a series then volume one of 7 so far is the perfect place to start. I love Cussler and Lee Child but overall this is the best series. I can never turn the I-TOUCH off.
This series has become my all-time favorite. It’s packed with action and adventure, romance, suspense and great characters. I’m a stickler for details and Anderson makes sure that everything that happens has a practical and logical explanation. My wife thinks some of Dufris narration gets kind of corny but having listened to him narrate all of the books, the voices and accents he uses for the different characters just seem normal to me. I highly recommend this series of books.
This is the most entertaining series I have personally read/listened. Taylor Anderson's Military knowledge paints a very vivid picture. His story telling Keeps you glued to the story. And the story itself has evolved into an epic masterpiece. Its hard to read this and not fall in love with most of the characters.
The worst part of this book is that know that its over I have to wait another year or so for the next one.
Lost Regiment series; Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series: a projection of the culture of the American military at its best into situations that were never anticipated.
I am amazed that all of the reviews for this audiobook are so positive. Personally, I found this latest installment of Destroyermen insufferable, and that’s an understatement.
The first few Destroyermen books had their flaws, for sure, but those flaws were far outweighed by a number of positive factors, like the discovery of an interesting new world: who were the Grik, and how about the other humans, from a different time period? Slowly discovering the answers to these questions, as the author gradually unravelled the mysteries, kept things interesting. Now, the sense of mystery is gone. Also, the character development in the earlier books, while not amazing, was sufficient enough that I cared about a number of the people in the story. Now that too is gone. The characters are more like caricatures. The Lemurians, whose heads we actually got inside before, have now been reduced to belittled half wits, always eager to please; I could not tell one from another. It comes off as kinda racist, actually, the way they are portrayed now. The exception is the elder Lemurians who, as before, speak as if they have been not only speaking English for many years, but also doing some seriously erudite studying of vocabulary, idioms and hard core literature, but it seems more extreme now.
Princess Rebecca’s little pet: profoundly irritating. I’m sure it’ll save her life soon. The exchanges between Matt and Sandra are rife with cringe-inducing, hackneyed lines and are painful to listen to. The Dom: why do so many of these books have an evil religious cult thrown into the mix? (the also-in-a-state-of-downward-spiral SM Stirling Emberverse series also suffers from this, as do a few other recent/comparatively recent fiction outings). And why, oh why, Grik Zeppelins? Zeppelins?
The originality of the earlier novels has been lost.
Iron Gray Sea was the last Destroyermen book that I will read or listen to. This is a situation where it may have been better for the author to wrap things up before they got stale - and then started something fresh. I am happy that the majority of the people who listened to the book loved it and are clamouring for more - at least those who have taken time to rate & review. I am not, alas, in that majority.
I love this series, but part of what make these books great is the way Taylor Anderson finds a way to progress the storyline while bringing each installment to a satisfactory conclusion. Not so much in book 7. Lots of action, huge battle scenes, but the biggest is just left hanging, with our intrepid capt. Reddy saying - hey, we're getting our arse's handed to us, but I have something up my sleeve ....The End.
As usual, William Dufris gives a masterful performance. It's like a one man dramatization.
