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.

Oh yes,If you like sifi books most anyone would like this series. The plot and characters are well thought out. Alot of the ship descriptions and people are very factual. But mostly it just plain fun.
He reminds me of my CO when I was in service.
When some of the characters passed on.
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.
Get out of the political minor stories and move forward.
Narrator is fine. Subject matter needs work.
I paid full price for a summary.
My wife says she can read me like an open book. Though she regrets not being able to shut me up the same way. :)
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."
I am an artist and I love to listen to books while I work. Books have always been an important part of my life. Audible Rocks!
This is one of those series that I tell everyone about! A mixture of history and Fantasy that really works! The Villains are great and the heroes are wonderful. Full of surprises and twists!
I always read the whole series from start to finish when a new book is coming out.
Taylor Anderson knows his stuff! Check out his website!
Yet another great story of the crew of USS Walker as they fight and explore the savage Earth they have been transported to
Yes, but only because I am on the go most of the day, so audio is the way to go
that change with each book, and it hust when someone die
he voice change with each character, I can nad have listen to he voice for upmto 14 hours a day
A then the world changed
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.

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?!?!?!
Taylor Anderson stands alone and each book in this series is awaited like a Christmas present when I was 10 years old.
It's full of memorable moments, up to the end and anticipation for Book 9.
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!
Mr. Anderson, please keep them coming, and Audible, keep Mr. Dufris in that studio!
It was like everyone had taken an advanced course in story writing and story telling. all the different characters and their stories fell neatly into place at the right time. Also it did not dwell forever on the past in order to explain a character or situation, on the other hand it did explain just enough to understand what was going on so you did not feel lost, excellent. the telling of the story was really outstanding, I am so glad some characters way of speaking was toned down, in the past books Dennis Sylva sounded like some circus clown from the middle of the Tennessee mountains, it just did NOT fit him at all! It is better this go around, not totally changed but not as bad. Mr. Dufris has an incredible range of voice and accents! He could read all of my books anytime.
Well, I can't really tell you that can I? Talk about a spoiler. Let's just say there is a certain ex-gladiator, now General that will reveal more brains than all of Grikkdom put together.
That he softened Dennis Sylvas accent, stopped making him sound like a complete idiot retarded person. I mean I am a redneck hick and I have never heard that bad of an accent. It is much more believable now. In the past books Dennis Sylva sounded like some circus clown from the middle of the Tennessee mountains, it just did NOT fit him at all! It is better this go around, not totally changed but not as bad. Mr. Dufris has an incredible range of voice and accents! He could read all of my books anytime.
Be prepared for anything, Because it just might happen!
If you don't read these books you are really missing a grand story of high adventure with tons of personal conflicts, overflowing with realistic battles and weapons, believable explanations and blueprints of their manufacture and use. And of course Dennis Sylva, that man IS the Alliance, he is an underrated Hercules, a whole book needs to be written of him and a few of his friends on a mission to save the Universe, lol. Well, ok, to save the world at least. God save Dennis Sylva! More of him from now on! I am waiting on book # 9....(arms folded, tapping foot....)
