    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    Overall

    I started this book with some concern that it wouldn't live up to my high hopes. I was very happy to find that it grabbed my attention right away. The description of the battle that led to the ship entering the storm captivated me right away. The author kept up with detail but also came up with an interesting approach to a parallel Earth. I very much enjoyed how the crew of the Walker deal with a local threat and the need to find resources that don't exist yet. The author did a great job of keeping the story interesting and on target. I look forward to the next book in this series!

    The Third Frontier War is raging, and all across human-occupied space worlds are burning. Massive fleets struggle for dominance and kilometer-long war ships exchange thermonuclear barrages. Battered in the early years of the war, the Western Alliance is resurgent. The brilliant Admiral Augustus Garret leads the Alliance fleet from victory to victory, taking the war to the very heart of the enemy empires.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story is awesome with lots of action and intrigue. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for drama, action, suspense, and of course, Sci-Fi!


    What other book might you compare The Cost of Victory to and why?

    Lost Fleet - lots of space action and the reality of physics is not ignored.


    What didn’t you like about Jeff Bower’s performance?

    His delivery was weak and without emotion. Most of his voice were childish squeaky and without emotion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely not! It wasn't the story that was the problem it was Jeff Bowers! I want someone reading the book that can get some emotion showing and can do decent character voices. I will definitely look to see if he is doing any books I listen to in the future. I still like to actually read and I may just opt to read vs listen if he is narrating.


    Any additional comments?

    Drop Jeff as a reader!
