Publisher's Summary

Ever since the USS Walker came from another world war to defy the terrifying Grik and diabolical Dominion, Matt Reddy and his crew have given their all to protect the oppressed Lemurians. But with the Walker in desperate need of repairs just as the Grik's first general is poised to strike, Reddy is desperate.

With more enemies than ever before arrayed against them, the crew of the Walker needs new allies. That means combing the lethal wilds of Madagascar to find the Lemurians' fabled ancestors as well as the enigmatic dwellers east of the Pass of Fire. But what Reddy's crew unearths may be more than they can handle - discoveries so shattering that they could tilt the balance of the war in either direction.

But Reddy's greatest adversary is from his past: a madman named Kurokawa whose single-minded mission of revenge will shake the Alliance to its core and raise the stakes to the most personal and terrifying levels Reddy has ever faced.

    "Series is getting even better"

    For the past couple of books we've been focused more internally. This book expands this into a true operatic series. Warning there is a cliffhanger that will leave you waiting for the next in the series. If you have yet to start the series from the beginning I strongly recommend that.

    "Little payoff for a long listen..."

    I have to start by saying that l have enjoyed this series from the beginning. I'll keep getting these books as they are released. But like the last book in the series there is too much going on in the story and you never really get to sink your teeth into anything. The battle scene is good and reminiscent of the Battle of Midway from WWII. Missing is the character interaction and development that was so fun and prevalent in the first half dozen books. If possible I'd recommend readers ask Audible to put out an omnibus version of the last, this and the next book.

    "It's incomplete, but I forgive him!"

    I think this is an extraordinary series, in fact I'd like to see each book as a season of a mini-series, as long as the author retained creative control, so the script writers don't screw it up as they usually do and spoil it for readers who like it fine just the way it was written. It would be predominantly CGI anyway.
    This book started a bit slow but did end up with plenty of action. The one thing about the semi-cliffhanger status is that we know there's another one coming up! The way this series is put together means unlimited scope for expansion and bringing in new characters and groups. It's a really excellent creation!

    "Getting old"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood in the Water the most enjoyable?

    This series is well written and enjoyable. However, the rate of change, and incredible proliferation of different people is really straining incredulity. From sailing ships to modern steel destroyers in 3 years! The initial advances in technology was fun and believable. But the tools to make the tools to make the tools, all in three years? Hard to keep swallowing the expanations.

    "Still going strong"

    After 10 books, you would think things would start to get stale. I assure you that is not the case. This book delivers the goods, like it's predicessors.

    Offering new twists and turns. New sub plots, plety of character development, and even more world building.

    "Getting Too Big"

    I have found that in the last few books that the story is getting so large that it's hard to include everything. Certain things aren't covered or barely covered. Either the books are going to have to get larger or some lose ends are going to have to get tied up. Not a big fan of cliff-hangers either. I still enjoyed it but almost dropped a star on Overall, Dufris narration is all thats keeping it at 5.

    Story
    "Long In the Tooth"
    Where does Blood in the Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Of the 112 books I have listened to it sits at # 14, but the breadth of my reading is such that it is not valid to compare vz. Capital, 14, Churchill and It Starts With Food are four examples.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Taylor Anderson? Why or why not?

    This story is getting long in the tooth so I might try only one more of this series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Silva on the Grick Dirigible near the end of this book.

    The narrator does an excellent job with all the voices and emotions - should get an award for this series !!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Anderson needs to wrap this up while we are all still with Capt. Reddy.
