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.

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.
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.
Consistent with its themes i really enjoyed this book on how a stranded crew might act if suddenly transported out of their time and place.
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.
