Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

Meanwhile, the Japanese juggernaut Amagi, also trapped in this strange world, is under Grik control---with her fanatical commander approaching madness. And soon they will have amassed a force that no amount of firepower and technology will be able to stop.As the raging conflict approaches, Reddy, his crew, his allies, and his loved ones face annihilation. But if there is one thing they have learned about their new world, it is that hope - and help - may be just over the horizon.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

    "Too much regurgitated material from previous books"

    At least half of this book is rehashed from the previous books. I enjoyed those books but feel ripped off by a lazy author "churning" old stuff. Why do authors do this? Maybe pressure from publishers, maybe disregard for their readers. It is not uncommon.

    "The Series Without Fail"

    This epic doesn't lose steam for even a minute. Incredible behind description with heartbreaking war tragedy and twists at every chapter. Unbelievable.

    "Leaves you hungry for more!"

    Series is difficult to continue. This one however seems to be continued with effortless after three books I am convinced that the rest of the series will be just as good as the first

    Story line follows and adventure is end to end. What's next, a good question. Can something from the future be next? Keep reading you will enjoy it.

    "My Commute Addiction"
    What did you love best about Maelstrom?

    I drive at least 2-3 hours a day and have been listening to Taylor Anderson's Destroyermen series. I simply can't get enough - I used to dread my commute time, but now I look forward to every chance I get to listen. I've even exchanged my music list while jogging for more time to listen to these stories. Dufris is amazing as the narrator; he has brought each of the characters alive. I will be incredibly sad when I have completed the series (and will likely grieve by listening to them all over again!!!). I'm simply addicted to this story and hope Mr. Anderson has no plans to stop the series any time soon.

    "Maelstrom Redefines Science Fiction"
    Where does Maelstrom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ahead of the rest, but not number one


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Maelstrom?

    The last third of the book when the planning all comes together


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The coming together of Becky the strip lizard with the crew.....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Book made me laugh in many different locations through out the book....it was fun.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like the rehashing of the features of the past book....

    Story
    "The tension builds and confrontation looms"
    What made the experience of listening to Maelstrom the most enjoyable?

    The whole alternate Earth landscape adds to the mystery and beauty of this series, always injecting itself into the strife and battles that occur, a menacing factor that seems to be just below the surface, ready to gobble up any hapless victim or straggler that falls behind. This book accounts for both sides of this other worldly struggle, as a defeated Grik force, amasses its forces for a confrontation with the formerly peaceful Lemurians


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dennis Silva, a slapstick naval officer with charismatic charm to heighten your sense of patriotism and loyalty to ones fellow crew mates. His character immerses you into his shoes as you are living the role.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    Dufris is spot on in maintaining a distinct voice for nearly all characters, even the somewhat mindless Grik are differentiated in their speeches.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely eager to never stop listening, this makes my daily commute to work so enjoyable and time just whisks by as the story progresses.

    "Boring and slow"

    I really liked the first two books in this series. This one was really slow and boring. Did not finish it. Lousy follow up book.

    "Should have been part of another book in the serie"

    This book seemed to have been broken off of another book - seems to not have any actual story other than to roll of the first and lead into the 3rd book

    I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.

    "I love this entire series!"

    Alternate history and military SCI-FI fans will love these books! I have listened to the first four and I enjoyed them all.
