Publisher's Summary

Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

Familiar landmarks appear, but the water teems with monstrous, vicious fish. And there appear to be dinosaurs grazing on the plains of Bali. Gradually Matt and his crew must accept the fact that they are in an alternate world---and they are not alone. Humans have not evolved, but two other species have. And they are at war.

With its steam power and weaponry, the Walker's very existence could alter the balance of power. And for Matt and his crew, who have the means to turn a primitive war into a genocidal Armageddon, one thing becomes clear: They must decide whose side they're on. Because whoever they choose to side with is the winner.

Battle stations! Listen to more in the Destroyermen series.

Don't Waste Your $ or Credits!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one I hope.

Would you ever listen to anything by Taylor Anderson again?

Yes, the narrator was not bad at all. It was the ridiculous plot that turned me off.

Would you be willing to try another one of William Dufris’s performances?

Probably not.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger at wasting $ on such contrived BS and disappointment in the plot. I did not expect the Navy men to encounter walking Lemurs, etc. Just ridiculous!

Any additional comments?

Just terrible.

Great Start!

Where does Into the Storm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Performance is very good. Story is entertaining. I always like this type of alt-history. I gave the book a 4 overall just because it is more of a setup to the larger story and as such is a little slow at times but that happens when you have to build a world in the readers mind. Its enough to get me excited to see what happens next!

What other book might you compare Into the Storm to and why?

Island in the Sea of Time is similar. A ship on the seas of a more primitive world.

Any additional comments?

Very solid opener. I look forward to listening to the other books. If you are looking for a good alt-history saga with some WWII style then you'll enjoy this book.

Into the storm

I enjoyed this book again, this is the third time reading it. I enjoyed the narration, story, and character development. The detail of the ship and the habit of the crew were realistic as well as the history of the war from the point of view of the American seaman. I recommend this book for anyone who likes history especially WW2 Pacific theatre and some sci-fi action.

ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHING!!!!!

Would you listen to Into the Storm again? Why?

This book and its story is absolutely amazing. Everywhere it goes in the story I get the chills in whats going to happen next. The thrill I get from the story is amazing. I would definitely read it again when I could.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character in the book was the Captain of the USS Walker. The Leadership he showed to his crew was amazing. He never gave up on his crew, and he always led them the right direction.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when they entered through the squall and ended up in a new world. A new world full of adventure.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the ship of the Lemurians was first attacked. The Captain had a choice to save those in need. Or let them be and forget. He chose to save the creatures that were not even part of his world. Even though it could endanger his crew. He saved the lives of others. That was a challenge that he faced and came through.

Any additional comments?

This book is a must read for anyone. It has many messages, and it can teach and show you many things.

I got it for <5$. About right

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only if it was cheap

What was most disappointing about Taylor Anderson’s story?

How silly is a story about a WWII Destroyer about to be annihilated by the Japanese going through a squall into a world where the good Cat People are hunted by the evil lizard people?

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

yes

Could you see Into the Storm being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

Any additional comments?

I got what I paid for but I did not pay very much. It was a cheap deal to introduce a series. No way I would pay full price for any sequels.

The series is pretty good. The narrator is awesome

I'm an early adopter with >800 audiobooks. Dufris is the best narrator in the business. His ability to give voice to unusual characters is unbelievable. His ability to mimic foreign accents is tremendous. The guy is really amazing.
