Publisher's Summary

In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire.

But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.

Meanwhile, the struggle continues on other fronts near and far: in the jungles of Borno in distant Southern Africa and in the Americas, where the allies are finally learning the terrible truth about the twisted Dominion.

The Alliance is on the offensive everywhere, but their enemies have a few surprises, including new weaponry and new tactics...and a stunning geographic advantage that Reddy never suspected. Until now.

The hits just keep rollin' in.

Mr Anderson must have been taking writting lessons from George R R Martin because neither ship nor sailor is safe from his war raging pen! Thie one was complex and exciting and brought tears to my eyes at one point. I was concerned that the story would grow too convoluted with all of the new actions and discoveries, but I haven't gotten lost yet.
How much more can our beloved Destroyermen take?!?!?!

Never a Disappointment

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

Taylor Anderson stands alone and each book in this series is awaited like a Christmas present when I was 10 years old.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Surge?

It's full of memorable moments, up to the end and anticipation for Book 9.

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

Mr. Dufris is each character, how he remembers each voice , each personality, is beyond my understanding - he's a really great actor, and makes each book a pleasure. Mr. Anderson provides the stories, Mr. Dufris brings his stories to all of us. What a team!

Any additional comments?

Mr. Anderson, please keep them coming, and Audible, keep Mr. Dufris in that studio!

Everything I was hoping and waiting for!

What did you love best about Storm Surge?

It was like everyone had taken an advanced course in story writing and story telling. all the different characters and their stories fell neatly into place at the right time. Also it did not dwell forever on the past in order to explain a character or situation, on the other hand it did explain just enough to understand what was going on so you did not feel lost, excellent. the telling of the story was really outstanding, I am so glad some characters way of speaking was toned down, in the past books Dennis Sylva sounded like some circus clown from the middle of the Tennessee mountains, it just did NOT fit him at all! It is better this go around, not totally changed but not as bad. Mr. Dufris has an incredible range of voice and accents! He could read all of my books anytime.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Surge?

Well, I can't really tell you that can I? Talk about a spoiler. Let's just say there is a certain ex-gladiator, now General that will reveal more brains than all of Grikkdom put together.

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

That he softened Dennis Sylvas accent, stopped making him sound like a complete idiot retarded person. I mean I am a redneck hick and I have never heard that bad of an accent. It is much more believable now. In the past books Dennis Sylva sounded like some circus clown from the middle of the Tennessee mountains, it just did NOT fit him at all! It is better this go around, not totally changed but not as bad. Mr. Dufris has an incredible range of voice and accents! He could read all of my books anytime.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Be prepared for anything, Because it just might happen!

Any additional comments?

If you don't read these books you are really missing a grand story of high adventure with tons of personal conflicts, overflowing with realistic battles and weapons, believable explanations and blueprints of their manufacture and use. And of course Dennis Sylva, that man IS the Alliance, he is an underrated Hercules, a whole book needs to be written of him and a few of his friends on a mission to save the Universe, lol. Well, ok, to save the world at least. God save Dennis Sylva! More of him from now on! I am waiting on book # 9....(arms folded, tapping foot....)

I''d like to cancel this purchase

I listened to the first chapter and found that I could not go on. I liked the performance, but the prose was not to my liking at all.
