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.

I want longer books!

Great book. It advanced the story and had some great action scenes. As always, William Dufris did a great job with all of the voices.

My only issue with the book is that the story has grown so much and there are so many different things going on that it felt a little abridged to me. By the time I was fully invested in one of the side stories, it would jump to another location. Hopefully he will bring some of the characters back together or start writing much longer books!

I will definitely keep following the series.

To short for how in depth the plot

This book takes place across an entire alternate planet, two wars are being fought in several locations and new characters are being introduced. This cannot happen in a 16 hour book! After anxiously awaiting this book, it left you more on a precipice than the last, no breaks or conclusions to the story line. And so much of the little time is refreshing the reader on character traits, and situational background, very frustrating.
Write longer or wrap up some of the loose ends!
A nice 40 hour book like the King Killer Chronicles would get this book 5 stars.

A good (not great) addition to the series .

Unless I'm mistaken there were a couple of battles that were rehashed from other books in the series. (IMHO). That was why I gave the story 3stars instead of 4. Other than that it was a very entertaining book.
William Dufris continues to do excellent work.

Excellent Story Continues

Where does Iron Gray Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the most enjoyable of the hundreds I have listened to. The developement of the characters and emotion of the story line is great.

Any additional comments?

Cant wait for the next book in the series - hurry!

Not Really A Sci-Fi Fan But I Like This Series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The characters are all well defined, sometimes predictable, but still providing a good storyline

Any additional comments?

As I said, I have never really been a sci-fi fan, but this series has gripped my imagination. About the only downside that I have had a issue with is that in Iron Grey Sea, the audio level was a lot lower. I drive a truck for a living, so I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and books 1 thru 6 were fine, but this one was so hard to hear over the truck noise.

Good but...

I am going to give this series one more shot. However I need some closure with some of the plot lines. Anderson keeps adding and adding without giving closure or even a measure of satisfaction to the reader.

I enjoy the characters and the world that the author has created. I'd like to feel that we're getting somewhere.

No ending

What did you love best about Iron Gray Sea?

Its the usual fun but there is no story structure within the individual book. Its just a piece of a bigger novel. It just stops. It doesn't end

A good continuation of a great story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

When a new book comes out in this series I listen to the whole lot from the start. It sure shortens the long miles.

What a Series

If you could sum up Iron Gray Sea in three words, what would they be?

Action,character development

Who was your favorite character and why?

Silva-The captain is great as are the generals but this character seems to just hit home. He sometimes seems dumb but that is far from the reality. EVERYONE should sift the characters and be prepared for a wonder ride.

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

The narator is perfect and needs to stay on. I bet he wouldn't quit anyhow because he wants to turn each page and see what happens next.

Any additional comments?

If everyone on Audible could pick one book to start a series then volume one of 7 so far is the perfect place to start. I love Cussler and Lee Child but overall this is the best series. I can never turn the I-TOUCH off.

When I started this series i had no idea how great it would be. the narrator is so skilled that he could pass as a professional actor. so glad audible made this available for australian audiences
