Publisher's Summary

Stuck in an alternate universe during World War II, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy of the U.S.S. Walker has found an unlikely but invaluable ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win.

However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue. For when Reddy and Jenks report the situation to the New Britain Company, they are met with scorn and disbelief. It soon becomes obvious that the ruthless Company is attempting to overthrow the Imperial Throne - and that someone involved knows where Sandra and Rebecca are. From the halls of power to the ballrooms of the nobility, Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day.

Connector Book

Anderson has done another exciting book in #5 of the destroyermen series. From the title, I assumed that it would be a connecting book between the set up last book and whatever comes in the next one; I was not disappointed. Author balances several plot lines and finally brings a couple of them together at the end while cementing future actions. Where is book #6?

recovery from last book

A good book and redemption from last book. He is no S. King and does not turn out good books each and every time, this is a winner.
It will be interesting to see if the next one is thrown in or thoughtfully written.

I like the series very much but some have a loss of cohesion and too much filler.

Excellent

What did you like best about this story?

The background universe and refreshing story

Any additional comments?

I have to go back and get the earlier books. To refresh my memory. Silva is a hoot and I want to see more of his development. It's very nice to find books not openly dismissive of basic American values. This series is about freedom.

Surprising Introduction to New Civilizations

Well the saga continues! I am happy that the story and the author's imagination continue to rock along without any depreciation in quality. We are introduced to more humans in this installment. I have to say that the narrator's talent is up to the task of providing the many dramatic voices for this novel. His performance is top notch and I have wondered how much I would enjoy reading the printed version as opposed to the audio version. I really like the audio. I now go to the Amazon website and "look inside" the printed versions to bring up maps and sketches that are included in the books, but the audio versions don't include. I photograph my computer screen with my camera and then print the photo so I can have a map. The world of the destroyer men is ever expanding and the maps are becoming necessary to appreciate the story - I still don't know why the audio books don't have a PDF file of the maps included. However, this installment carries the story and the world farther than I thought possible, but the author, as usual, did it in spectacular fashion. I just wonder how many more books he'll be able to write. I suppose that it could be an infinite number.

And the War Goes On

Would you listen to Rising Tides again? Why?

Absolutely! I love alternative history and science fiction. This is the best of both worlds. World War II is a favorite of mine and quantum physics is a great way to bring about a change in history.

What did you like best about this story?

It was a continuing story that gave you a chance to get to know and form an attachment to the charachters.

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

My favorite, i guess, was the irrepressible Dennis Sylva.

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

It made me do both in turn as you experienced the continuing struggles of the main characters with whom you had formed a bond.

What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Emotion and character depth brought to life.

A Highly Entertaining Series, one of my favorites!

Any additional comments?

Who doesn't love a great series that is imaginative, well written, with wonderful characters and lots of action? i listen or read two or three books a week and am always on the lookout for good, entertaining series. These characters are so vivid that I become totally enveloped in the alternative world. Imaginative entertainment for adults. Well produced and well worth the credits for the series.

A classic B western (FUN)

Great imaginative story. Taylor has a reservoir of great ideas. It's a very John Wayne western disguised in sic fi, with fun, accurate, technical flourishes. Mr. Dufris is beyond excellent as a narrator. I will be sad to find the ending.
