Publisher's Summary

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.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

    "Destroyermen is a don't miss series."

    It keeps getting better, Taylor Anderson has done a superb job with this story line, each book in the series expertly moves various individual aspects along while at the same time keeping things fresh and exciting. The character development and dynamic stories emerges you into this wonderfully exciting world and the complexity that has been put into each part of these books set the stage for a wide rage additional stories. Well worth adding to your Audible collection no matter what your genre preference is.

    "Destroyermen - Book 4 not up to par"

    The first two were good, plot moved along very good, character development was good, battle scene were compact and well carried out, Book three was a little more contrived and forced. Book 4, to wordy and contrived, could not finish the books.

    "I like this series alot!"

    I bought this book because books 1-3 were great! However, #4 was slow compared to other 3 books and some parts almost put me to sleep. Still, it wasn't a bad book. Just not Anderson's best

    "Exceptional Series"

    Taylor Anderson has built a framework for a neverending story, because he has succeeded in building an alternate world.

    "this tale is startind to become boring..."

    I bought this book, because i enjoyed the previous 3, now frankly i am starting to get boring. It is like reading the previous 3 books, but with a lot less action. Also, it becoming tedious in developing and i think the author is losing the scope of the story and he is more worried about introducing more characters/races/species so he can continue writing the same tale. I think this is the last one for me.

    "Boreing"

    Starts off slow and does not get any faster. Some how they missed the most impelling reason to keep reading. That would be the good battle scenes.
    Well there is always the next one
