Publisher's Summary

In Taylor Anderson's acclaimed Destroyermen series, a parallel universe adds an extraordinary layer to the drama of World War II. Now, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, the crew of the USS Walker, and their allies battle an ever-growing host of enemies across the globe in a desperate battle for freedom.

War has engulfed the other earth. With every hard-won victory and painful defeat, Matt Reddy and the Allies encounter more friends-and even more diabolical enemies. Even, at last, in the arms of the woman he loves, there is little peace for Reddy. The vast sea, and the scope of the conflict, have trapped him too far away to help on either front, but that doesn't mean he and Walker can rest. Cutting short his "honeymoon," Reddy sails off in pursuit of Hidoiame, a rogue Japanese destroyer that is wreaking havoc in Allied seas. Now that Walker is armed with the latest "new" technology, he hopes his battle-tested four-stacker has an even chance in a straight-up fight against the bigger ship - and he means to take her on.

Elsewhere, the long-awaited invasion of Grik "Indiaa" has begun, and the Human-Lemurian Alliance is pushing back against the twisted might of the Dominion. The diplomatic waters seethe with treachery and a final, terrible plot explodes in the Empire of New Britain Isles. Worse, the savage Grik have also mastered "new" technologies and strategies. Their fleet of monstrous ironclads - and an army two years in the making-are finally massing to strike.

    "Still Going Strong..."

    This is a continuation of a series that I rank in the upper 25 percent of favorites so far. I've listened to a fair number of stories and a equal number of series, and this one does not leave me feeling flat. After seven installments, I like where the storyline is going... even if I cannot accurately predict how it will play out for the individual characters. Perhaps that is half of the fun? Honestly, it is a good 'series' listen, but one cannot enjoy the tale unless the story is heard from the beginning. This is not a stand-alone episode, even for one familiar with the characters. I found myself, in the first hour of the listen, trying to remember who/what/where/when/why. A bit distracting, but easily overcome as memory returned and the delight of the story unfolded.

    The narration is gold-standard good; Mr. Dufris is an exceptionally gifted actor and his performance is never stale or disingenuous.

    I can't wait to hear how Dennis Silva will save the universe!

    "Another decent installment of a decent series"

    Hey, it's a great series to listen to while you are running down the road, and this installment is actually one of the better ones, although Anderson does tend to get bogged down in character development a little more than I care for.
    He has a pretty good grasp of tactics and a great wealth of knowledge regarding seagoing minutia making the books a great listen. I keep buying them, so they have to be pretty good. I'd like to see a lot less talk and a little more action.
    Mr. Dufris does a good job. Very consistent in the overall cadence and tone of the story.
    If you are looking for a fun series to listen to, one not requiring any "in depth" thinking about, this is a great one, especially if you enjoy a good war story.

    "Good listen"
    Where does Iron Gray Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this series, this book was not the best in the series, but it was well written as I have come to except from Taylor Anderson. As always this book left me wanting the next book to come out. Generally I hate series because of this fact, but this one has pulled me in. The narrative was what I have come to expect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is hard to answer since they are all great, personally I love the time period these characters are set in. World War two was a hard time for America and this book demonstrates the determination that the men and women of this time period possess.


    Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

    I liked them all.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    They better not make a movie, they would ruin the story, it's way too big for the movies.

    "What a Series"
    If you could sum up Iron Gray Sea in three words, what would they be?

    Action,character development


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Silva-The captain is great as are the generals but this character seems to just hit home. He sometimes seems dumb but that is far from the reality. EVERYONE should sift the characters and be prepared for a wonder ride.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    The narator is perfect and needs to stay on. I bet he wouldn't quit anyhow because he wants to turn each page and see what happens next.


    Any additional comments?

    If everyone on Audible could pick one book to start a series then volume one of 7 so far is the perfect place to start. I love Cussler and Lee Child but overall this is the best series. I can never turn the I-TOUCH off.

    "My favorite series"

    This series has become my all-time favorite. It’s packed with action and adventure, romance, suspense and great characters. I’m a stickler for details and Anderson makes sure that everything that happens has a practical and logical explanation. My wife thinks some of Dufris narration gets kind of corny but having listened to him narrate all of the books, the voices and accents he uses for the different characters just seem normal to me. I highly recommend this series of books.

    "Best Series EVER!"

    This is the most entertaining series I have personally read/listened. Taylor Anderson's Military knowledge paints a very vivid picture. His story telling Keeps you glued to the story. And the story itself has evolved into an epic masterpiece. Its hard to read this and not fall in love with most of the characters.
    The worst part of this book is that know that its over I have to wait another year or so for the next one.

    Lost Regiment series; Jack Campbell's Lost Fleet series: a projection of the culture of the American military at its best into situations that were never anticipated.

    Dennis Silva

    "Bad."

    I am amazed that all of the reviews for this audiobook are so positive. Personally, I found this latest installment of Destroyermen insufferable, and that’s an understatement.

    The first few Destroyermen books had their flaws, for sure, but those flaws were far outweighed by a number of positive factors, like the discovery of an interesting new world: who were the Grik, and how about the other humans, from a different time period? Slowly discovering the answers to these questions, as the author gradually unravelled the mysteries, kept things interesting. Now, the sense of mystery is gone. Also, the character development in the earlier books, while not amazing, was sufficient enough that I cared about a number of the people in the story. Now that too is gone. The characters are more like caricatures. The Lemurians, whose heads we actually got inside before, have now been reduced to belittled half wits, always eager to please; I could not tell one from another. It comes off as kinda racist, actually, the way they are portrayed now. The exception is the elder Lemurians who, as before, speak as if they have been not only speaking English for many years, but also doing some seriously erudite studying of vocabulary, idioms and hard core literature, but it seems more extreme now.

    Princess Rebecca’s little pet: profoundly irritating. I’m sure it’ll save her life soon. The exchanges between Matt and Sandra are rife with cringe-inducing, hackneyed lines and are painful to listen to. The Dom: why do so many of these books have an evil religious cult thrown into the mix? (the also-in-a-state-of-downward-spiral SM Stirling Emberverse series also suffers from this, as do a few other recent/comparatively recent fiction outings). And why, oh why, Grik Zeppelins? Zeppelins?

    The originality of the earlier novels has been lost.

    Iron Gray Sea was the last Destroyermen book that I will read or listen to. This is a situation where it may have been better for the author to wrap things up before they got stale - and then started something fresh. I am happy that the majority of the people who listened to the book loved it and are clamouring for more - at least those who have taken time to rate & review. I am not, alas, in that majority.
