Publisher's Summary

After the battle in which the men of the destroyer Walker and their Lemurian allies repelled the savage Grik, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy is shocked by the arrival of a strange ship captained by one Commaner Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy - an island-nation populated by the descendants of British East Indiamen swept through the rift centuries before.

With the Walker undergoing repairs, Reddy already has a great deal on his hands. For the Grik will return, and Reddy will need all hands on deck to fight them off when they next attack. But Jenks's uncertain loyalties make Reddy question whether he can trust the man. As tension between the Allies and the Imperials mount, Reddy will come to realize that his suspicions are not misplaced - and that a greater danger than the Grik is closer than he ever suspected.

Great Follow-Up to the Series

4th in series. This book was a little different than the prior three, in that unlike the first three, Book 4 leaves a lot of plots unresolved. Fear not though as Book 5 will resolve those issues, in other words treat book 4 and book 5 as one volume. William Dufris' narration is perfect for these books (though as noted elsewhere William Dufris could read the phone book and make it sound like a classic).

Destroyermen is a don't miss series.

It keeps getting better, 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.

Destroyermen - Book 4 not up to par

The first two were good, plot moved along very good, character development was good, battle scene were compact and well carried out, Book three was a little more contrived and forced. Book 4, to wordy and contrived, could not finish the books.

I like this series alot!

I bought this book because books 1-3 were great! However, #4 was slow compared to other 3 books and some parts almost put me to sleep. Still, it wasn't a bad book. Just not Anderson's best
