Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker find themselves caught between the nation they swore to defend and the allies they promised to protect. For even as the Allies and the Empire of New Britain Isles stand united against the attacks of both the savage Grik and the tenacious Japanese, the "Holy Dominion" - a warped mixture of human cultures whose lust for power overshadows even the Grik - is threatening to destroy them both with a devastating weapon neither can withstand.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

    "Just keeps getting better."

    This series has definitely found its stride! It's a bit of Star Tek, Lost, Baa Baa Black Sheep (for the few who might remember") , and "Land of the Lost" ....in a technologically detailed and expertly narrated battle for the fate of the world.

    "Possibly the Best in the Series"

    Absolutely remarkable story, filled with drama, adventure, and character development that surpass even the best books I'll be to this point. I love this authors work and every single addition in this epic has been better than the last, but this definitely takes the cake.

    Story
    "Continues the action and challenges!"

    I continue to enjoy this series, now in book six, which is full of action and human stories. I appreciate how the author tucks in social and political discussions or comments through the actions of the characters. As one example, the proper British Commander, Jenks, now Captain Reddy’s friend and traveling with him, questions attacking the Dominion ships without a warning shot. Captain Reddy points out that he doesn’t think such a step is needed when the enemy has already shown themselves without honor in their surprise attack against civilians at the New British Isles.

    As they prepare for battle, one of the commanders comments:
    “Plan for the best but prepare for the worst. Every battle is won or lost in the planning; in the mind before the first sword is ever fought.” They had to learn that they could not leave quarter to an enemy that would accept no surrender. “Any we don’t kill today, we will have to kill tomorrow.” There are other interesting comments on war including the theme of ‘killing murderers is not murder, but war with a certain justice in it.’

    It is engaging to watch (read/listen) as Mr. Anderson shows the Grik, or at least some of them, becoming more than the savages they were in the first book. Some are now learning and changing their attitudes and there are even ‘civilian’ Grik who have become aides to the leaders of the Grand Alliance!

    Although this might not be quite as exciting as the last book this is still engaging and left me anxious to follow the challenges of the characters into book seven!

    Audio Notes: I can't think of much new to add to my previous comments on Dufris' excellent narration of this series. I am continually amazed at the numerous voices and characters he successfully portrays. His narration makes the listening a great enjoyment for me.

    "Average, and the fight continues"

    A continuation of the "Destroyermen" series. Some characters in the plethora of characters, developed more fully as the story moved on--slowly. At one point three battles raged simultaneously and it was difficult to track progress in all of them or to understand the strategic import as the gore continued. No plot limes concluded and the author might as well have cut out some text and combined a few books. Nevertheless, I read/listened to all of it.

    Story
    "Fantasy mixed with seeming Non-Fiction"
    What made the experience of listening to Firestorm the most enjoyable?

    The author is consistent with allowing an equal measure of success by the allies but random acts of defeat by the evil empires they fight. Mixed in is a creative use of US Military might circa 1950. The story if fun almost seems real at times!!


    If you’ve listened to books by Taylor Anderson before, how does this one compare?

    This was book 6 in the series...I have listened to them all! And will listen to the remaining ones to see if the epic battle will end all conflict. At times I want to see it made into a movie or tv series and then I would rather the imagery to stay with the book.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    I love this audio actor. Different voices, lots of expression...you can almost see the facial expression of the characters as he reads their parts.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no laugh no cry but I think I may have done a fist pump or two after successful campaigns

    "Strong Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Firestorm to be better than the print version?

    Each book is around 15-16 hours which sounds long. It's not. The time passes quickly and then it is over which is disappointing. Anderson could have kept going and I would have kept listening.

    When a series reaches this point, they usually drag. Not much new happens and characters get confusing. This series stays interesting with surprises when you thought there could not have been any more.

    So many enemies have been introduced though, it is tough to see how our intrepid good guys/women led by CPT Reddy are going to prevail.

    Keep writing Mr. Anderson. We are waiting for the next installment.

    "Ship Ahoy"

    Nice to see the Dame famine coming to an end and that the New British Empire will be allies. The Grik are certainly getting more threatening and their new Technology will make the future far more uncertain for the Allies!
