Publisher's Summary

In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire.

But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.

Meanwhile, the struggle continues on other fronts near and far: in the jungles of Borno in distant Southern Africa and in the Americas, where the allies are finally learning the terrible truth about the twisted Dominion.

The Alliance is on the offensive everywhere, but their enemies have a few surprises, including new weaponry and new tactics...and a stunning geographic advantage that Reddy never suspected. Until now.

    "Fun ride"

    More action in one book than most similar series have in 10 but still having a great story and incredible characters(even the "bad guys") The reader is also very talented.

    "Such a unique series"

    Other reviewers have commented on the ever increasing scope of these books as a negative, but I really enjoy it - it gives a real sense of the vastness of the world and narrative, and gives the many characters plenty of room to run without feeling repetitive. I personally love watching the continued (and rather plausible) technological and industrial advancements too. This book is one of my favorites of this series, so far.

    "Another great book."

    I really enjoyed this one. Lots of excitement that kept me coming back. I was starting to get a little bored with the series but now want to listen to the next one soon.

    "More Grik"

    #8 of 9 was certainly more interesting than #6. The of the plethora of characters are pretty familiar and we know what they will do, although a few are introduced. Some die and are removed from the story. Some threads are developed and mature...more pique your interest but are not complete. others, just lie there...dead? The strategy and the characters of this world interest me...as do the question about ending. This has been going on for so long, how will it end--or, will it?

    Story
    "Endless, endless, endless series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This series was like climbing a tree. One starts on a solid trunk of a story line, then encounters a few interesting side branches, but you are still firmly attached to the trunk. As the books continue, the reader finds himself in a tangle of increasingly tiny, parallell story branches, the plot line lost. This last book reads as an English assignment: "write a 5,000 word essay on....".


    Has Storm Surge turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yeah. Many authors that develop a lot of interesting characters, and perhaps have a contractual obligation to their publishers, end up ruining a good story by dragging it out.


    What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has excellent voice characterization, but after the first 3 or 4 books, even he can't keep up with the increasing senseless complexity.

    What did you love best about Storm Surge?

    Mr. Anderson continues to mingle interesting characters, a multifaceted storyline and a fast pace which makes it difficult to stop listening even through I try to limit myself to my workout times. I'll continue to look forward eagerly to the next installment.
