Storm Surge: Destroyermen, Book 8 | [Taylor Anderson]

Storm Surge: Destroyermen, Book 8

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.

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.

    "Great adventure."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Must read. Storm Surge is a an adventure you will not be able to put down. Taylor Anderson writes a great story about war and the consequences of doing so even when not to do so is not an option. Get all of the books and you will be hook just like me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Surge?

    I found all of the story to be memorable.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    He put his heart into the reading and made you feel that you were there during the war. He made the characters alive and make me care for all of them. Can not wait for him to record the next book next year.


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

    War for life and freedom.


    Any additional comments?

    When I listen to the first book by Taylor Anderson, I was hook, I can not wait for next year for book 9. W Dufris did a great job of hooking me to the saga just by putting his heart in the story.

    Story
    "Just a summarization of prior books"
    What disappointed you about Storm Surge?

    Just a summary of the previous books in the series. Kind of a waste of time. The usual epic battle was like a pop gun. Once again, miracle of miracles, the evil Jap commander escapes again. Shocking!!! Enough already.


    What could Taylor Anderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get out of the political minor stories and move forward.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator is fine. Subject matter needs work.


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

    I paid full price for a summary.

    "Loved it. Waiting for Book 9."

    This has been a consistently great series. Now at Book 8 and the formula that made Books 1 through 7 so compelling continues... it does NOT disappoint. The combination of history, character development, and traditions that consistently evolve on the shoulders of actions in earlier books -- AND a great narrator with broad voice diversity -- makes this series a "must listen."

    "Taylor Anderson does it again!"
    What made the experience of listening to Storm Surge the most enjoyable?

    Having been hooked on the Destroyer Men series for some time now. Like many other fans I had been waiting for the newest installment to be released. I wasn't disappointed. Storm Surge delivers all the fast paced energy and excitement that I have come to expect and love from this series.


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

    I have to say that this is one of those books that you will find yourself listening to at every chance so you can find out more about their adventures.

    "I've never finished an audio book so fast."

    My review of the previous book in the series wasnt great. It was an "ok" story.

    Storm Surge book 8 was on a whole other level when compared to book 7.

    I loved this book and finished it in less than a week. For me,working full time and listening to an 18 hour book,that's fast. I was disappointed when it was over (and only because it was over) and can not wait for book 9.

    Those of you who are invested in the series will not be disappointed with this latest installment.

    Story
    "The hits just keep rollin' in."

    Mr Anderson must have been taking writting lessons from George R R Martin because neither ship nor sailor is safe from his war raging pen! Thie one was complex and exciting and brought tears to my eyes at one point. I was concerned that the story would grow too convoluted with all of the new actions and discoveries, but I haven't gotten lost yet.
    How much more can our beloved Destroyermen take?!?!?!

    "Never a Disappointment"
    Where does Storm Surge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Taylor Anderson stands alone and each book in this series is awaited like a Christmas present when I was 10 years old.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Surge?

    It's full of memorable moments, up to the end and anticipation for Book 9.


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

    Mr. Dufris is each character, how he remembers each voice , each personality, is beyond my understanding - he's a really great actor, and makes each book a pleasure. Mr. Anderson provides the stories, Mr. Dufris brings his stories to all of us. What a team!


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Anderson, please keep them coming, and Audible, keep Mr. Dufris in that studio!
