Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with monstrous, vicious fish. And there appear to be dinosaurs grazing on the plains of Bali. Gradually Matt and his crew must accept the fact that they are in an alternate world---and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. And they are at war.
With its steam power and weaponry, the Walker's very existence could alter the balance of power. And for Matt and his crew, who have the means to turn a primitive war into a genocidal Armageddon, one thing becomes clear: They must decide whose side they're on. Because whoever they choose to side with is the winner.

Audible books are the perfect companion for my 4 mile morning walk!
Nothing. As mentioned in other reviews (now that I've done back and read them more carefully) this is basically a Grade B movie script that's been done a number of times. I keep thinking I'm reading the book version of the Final Countdown. To each their own, although giving a storyline like this 5-stars is really hard to understand.
Unless something changes radically in the next 10 hours of listening, assuming I get that far, I won't be purchasing any more of the series.
Not much. The story line is just to silly. I'll admit I'm a sci-fi fan rather than a fantasy fan.

Why won't you allow just Step One to be completed?????? You want way too much of my time requiring completion of all the questions. I'd prefer to cooperate by just answering step one questions. It seems to be All or Nothing at All with your survey.
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.
I have really enjoyed this series. Has a little bit of scifi elements, but for some reason I don't feel like I am in a scifi world, which is a good thing. I like its historic link; I might like it even more so, if i knew more about ships, specifically historic ones. The book is steadily entertainment. For the most part, I am not so drawn in that I am up all night, but also never feel so board I want to set it down. There are no crazy, shocking plot changes, but also nothing that feels too obvious. I will say that for a series of several books, the characters aren't develop as well as they could be. There are characters that are very involved that i dont feel like I 'know' yet.
I don't write a lot of reviews, but I wanted to do my part. I'm 100% hooked on the Destroyermen books. I've pounded through all 5 books in a month, and I'm dying for more.
Enjoyable alternate reality tale. Characters adapting to life in new reality makes for an easy book 1. Having a conclusion and getting there measures the skill of a series author (see Peter F Hamilton). I have book 2, but looking ahead to reviews of books 3 and 4, I am concerned that this will become a never ending rehash of the author milking his readers for another paycheck. The premise is not good enough for a never ending soap opera.
I have read every one of the books and I have thoroughly enjoyed every one. I have absolutely no problem believing in a slightly altered parallel world. The only problem I have is that I vote for Limeiran over Cat Monkey.
I enjoyed it. It was different and fun. I liked the characters. I liked the use of Navy terms. As a Navy spouse, it was easy to follow, but I don't know if the average civilian would find it distracting or not. I have downloaded Book 2!
I'm loving the story. It's captivating and fun.
One reason for the 4 star rating is because the narrator moved from one section to another without even a breath in between. It's a bit confusing to be listening about one group of characters and then another group with no segue to mark the change.
