Publisher's Summary

In Taylor Anderson's acclaimed Destroyermen series, a parallel universe adds an extraordinary layer to the drama of World War II. Now, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, the crew of the USS Walker, and their allies battle an ever-growing host of enemies across the globe in a desperate battle for freedom.

War has engulfed the other earth. With every hard-won victory and painful defeat, Matt Reddy and the Allies encounter more friends-and even more diabolical enemies. Even, at last, in the arms of the woman he loves, there is little peace for Reddy. The vast sea, and the scope of the conflict, have trapped him too far away to help on either front, but that doesn't mean he and Walker can rest. Cutting short his "honeymoon," Reddy sails off in pursuit of Hidoiame, a rogue Japanese destroyer that is wreaking havoc in Allied seas. Now that Walker is armed with the latest "new" technology, he hopes his battle-tested four-stacker has an even chance in a straight-up fight against the bigger ship - and he means to take her on.

Elsewhere, the long-awaited invasion of Grik "Indiaa" has begun, and the Human-Lemurian Alliance is pushing back against the twisted might of the Dominion. The diplomatic waters seethe with treachery and a final, terrible plot explodes in the Empire of New Britain Isles. Worse, the savage Grik have also mastered "new" technologies and strategies. Their fleet of monstrous ironclads - and an army two years in the making-are finally massing to strike.

Yawn....

The battles continue in book 7 of 9. By now, the reader is accustomed to the technology inject and the static fighting between multiple entities as the war plods on for multiple volumes. There are still multiple story lines and one of them keeps popping up at the end of each book: "Gee, where did that come from?" Not much got resolved, the enemies are still the same and the USS Walker crew dwindles. I wonder what will happen next?

Back on Track

Lots of tension, good battles exciting!!! The Grik have gotten stronger!! Much stronger and have our friends up against it while Walker is away chasing down the Jap Destroyer. This book certainly shakes up the status quo of the alliance. Adar offering to leave as commander n chief, The New British Isles new leader... Its a very good book and I couldn't stop listening.

Love it

Would you listen to Iron Gray Sea again? Why?

Yes. Love the narrator and I'm a sucker for alternate reality books.

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the flow of the story and how the narrator handles multiple characters. I've heard all of the other books in the series and have come to feel as if the characters are old friends. I particularly love his portrayal of Silva..the lovable rogue of the bunch.

Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I plan to.

Cant wait for the next book!

So I recently finished the last published book in the series and i am still hungry for more. The story closely resembles another series a gratly enjoyed " The Lost Regiment". I like the dynamic between the main characters and also the flow of the book was very smooth, never realy felt lost while reading this series. I love the British guy who is always talking about the animals and plants on the new world, what a fun character. The only rip I have on this series now that I have finished book nine is that there were sevral parts that were just plain slow or unneeded. Love the series as a whole and cant wait for the next book which I think comes out in the summer of 2013.

The story grows!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story seems to be getting larger, to the point that an end to it would be much more difficult to write within one book.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting aspect to me is the events described in the epilogue.

Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

My favorite character, as performed, is Silva.

Did Iron Gray Sea inspire you to do anything?

This book does not inspire me to do anything.

Any additional comments?

There is no obvious end in sight for this storyline. Feeling this way after book 7 in a series worries me about the authors ability to finish the storyline.

Good story but overall a little long in the tooth

What did you like best about Iron Gray Sea? What did you like least?

I have listened to all of the books in this series and have enjoyed them very much up to this point but even with the book before this one the story line is getting a bit long in the tooth for me. Each book seems to now be just more of the same except now there are multiple grounds to keep track of.

Talor is still hanging in there

The Iron Grey Sea stays right on track. It fits in wonderfully with the previous books and still keeps you guessing what is up next. The Griks and the Japanese still linger and the battle is far from over. Keep it up Taylor. You're great.
