Publisher's Summary

Stuck in an alternate universe during World War II, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy of the U.S.S. Walker has found an unlikely but invaluable ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win.

However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue. For when Reddy and Jenks report the situation to the New Britain Company, they are met with scorn and disbelief. It soon becomes obvious that the ruthless Company is attempting to overthrow the Imperial Throne - and that someone involved knows where Sandra and Rebecca are. From the halls of power to the ballrooms of the nobility, Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

    "Each book in this series is better than the last!"

    If you have not started this series yet, I envy you. If you have started this series, than you are likely in the same boat as myself...in agony, knowing there will be such a long wait for book 6. I wish there was a device that could erase specific parts of my memory so that I could go back and listen the these books again for the first time.

    I enjoyed this book even more than the first 4 even though there was much less action. It's obvious Mr. Anderson is setting up the sequence for future events, and I usually hate that, but he did such a great job, I'm afraid the actual events are going to be anti-climactic. I'm sure my fear is unwarranted.

    As always, a superior performance by the narrator. I absolutely forget that all those characters are coming from just one person. Well done Mr. Dufris!

    "LOVE THIS SERIES"

    The series is terrific and this book is another WONDERFUL hit. Five stars should also be awarded to the narrator William Dufris! I love the way he allows each character a voice and brings the world written by the author to life.

    "Favorite series"

    The Destroyermen has turned into my favorite sci fi series. Taylor Anderson can sure spin a tale and William Dufris is one of the best narrators in the business. My only gripe with this series is that I can read faster than Anderson can write.

    "Great Book and a great series"

    This is a very enjoyable book and series. The characters have depth and the story will keep you coming back for more. The author is great with the technical details that so many others get wrong. I really enjoy the narrator of this series as well. I can not wait until the next installment in the series.

    "Destroyermen is a don't miss series."

    Outstanding, 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.

    "Rising Tides: Destroyermen, Book 5"

    Well written and inspite of being only the next book in the series, this one wraps things up better than book 4 where we were left hanging, screaming for book 5 so we could find out what happens. Well after you read book 5 you'll know.

    Book 5 isn't perfect. Some actions sequences are less than what I would have expected compared to those in previous books but others were better, and we are left wondering if there will be whole new stories to come just expanding on these events.

    This is a good read and well worth your time.

    "Excellent...Best since book1"

    The book was excellent. I do wish there had been more as some part left you hanging and then you found out later what happened. I cannot wait for the next in the series. The narator has been great throughout the series. Listen to them all!!!

    "Excellent addition to the series"

    I really look forward to these books, and I hope I don't have to wait that long for the next. It's a great alternate work series with pointed real world themes. Taylor Anderson has an excellent sense of humor while telling a very thought provoking story.

    "Slow Burn ends with a bang"

    Best yet. Mr. Anderson has out done himself. He was able to masterfully move between numerous subplots and spin an exciting tale. I can't wait for the next adventure for our WWII Destroyermen.

    "I have never contemplated returning a book ......."
    What would have made Rising Tides better?

    Difficult to say I could not get into the book and am unlikley to finish it


    Has Rising Tides put you off other books in this genre?

    I will try others but NOT in this series


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The alternative Earth story is something that has some attraction for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I rarely do not finish a book even if it is tedious and predictable. With this book I feel that there is nothing in the plot that I can associate with. Maybe if I had read earlier books in the series I would view it differently but I doubt it.
