Into the Storm: Destroyermen, Book 1

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

    "Poor Narration"

    I am surprised and disappointed that the Taylor Anderson doesn't know how to pronounce a simple conatraction - and there are many in this story. He sounds like a small child that hasn't learned how to speak correctly.

    Rather than "couldn't" he says "coulddent" and "wouldn't" he pronounces as "woulddent". Alwasy adding an additional "d" and "e" in the word.

    Because there are so many contractions in the book, it is very annoying and ruins the story. The narration makes the story come alive normally but not in this case.

    "Great!!"

    This is a great story with wonderful characters. I really enjoyed it! I am always so hesitant to buy books by authors that I havn't read before but I'm glad I took a chance on this one.

    "Maybe one of the best"

    Finishing book one and moving on to book two. This series is on pace to become the best ever (IMO. Currently the Price Roger series holds that place.

    "Well told"

    A fine mix of naval warfare meets scifi fantasy.
