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.

    "Long in tooth..."

    After a year away from Taylor Anderson's "other earth", I'm starting to wait less eagerly at the next book in the series. Its fun, irreverent and entertaining and the expanding world is interesting but between the meat of the pages, I kept waiting for more ground to be covered. With a cast that now easily spans beyond a few dozen, I'd expect the novels to expand to fit the multiple plot lines and/or move slightly faster.

    As much as the inner kid in me loves in the idea of dinosaur piloted zeppelins duking it out with a fleet of vintage WWII boats and planes piloted by Humans and Lemurs, I'm worried by the end I'll of experienced too much of a good thing.

    There's only so many times Walker, Mahan Salissa and Catalina can make death defying escapes. Only so many Human enclaves that seem feasibly to be "off the grid" as far as the Grik and Lemurians are concerned and only so many antics that sideshow (stooges) trio of Dennis, Larry and Moe can perform.... before all the troupes are tired.

    I'm all for this series but I'd like to see it wrap up. Perhaps an end could lead to more adventures but for now I just want the feeling that this series has a conclusion.... even if just for a moment.

    "Back In Action"

    Its nice to see some of the political intrigues getting finished up. Hopefully the Alliance will pull together again after some of the internal strife. Cant wait for the next book as usual.

    Nice to see them (The Alliance) find more allies and scary to think that the Grik/Jap might have too.

    "I can not wait for book 9. Book 8 is Great !"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As soon as a new book is released I immediately wait for the next one. I have always been pleased with the characters moving in and out of the chapters. I don't know how the author keeps everything moving like he does. Maybe submarines are coming soon as the alliance keeps coming up with new weapons. The torpedo was a game changer in this one.

    So in a word, YES I recommend this book and it would be a shame that an avid reader has not started getting to know the characters from the first moment of the first book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Silva. He keeps coming into each story when a light or serious moment is needed.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    He does a great job and is clearly the voice of the series.


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

    Yes. I finished it in 4 days. I love a long book when it is so interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    I wonder what devious plans the Japanese Admiral will come up with next. It is hard to imagine that in a real society that this guy would not have been executed or ended his life himself. He just suffered one heck of a pasting.

    "Absolutely incredible."

    This is a series of books that never fails to please. It is incredibly well written and read to perfection by William Dufris. Few authors have held my attention in the same imaginative way that Taylor Andersons books have.

    "Yet another fantastic story"

    Anderson's series is just getting better and better. Each story is tightly woven, astounding given the shear scope of the narrative. Difris' narration is brilliant, I can't praise it enough. His voice for Dennis Silva is a hoot.
    As a high school history teacher, I have actually begun recommending the book to students who show interest in World War II and historical fiction. It's hard to pin this down as scifi or fantasy because it walks the line so well.
    The highest praise I can give is it has kept me up late at night saying, 'one more chapter.'

    "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.
