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.

    "Back In Action"

    Its nice to see some of the political intrigues getting finished up. Hopefully the Alliance will pull together again after some of the internal strife. Cant wait for the next book as usual.

    Nice to see them (The Alliance) find more allies and scary to think that the Grik/Jap might have too.

    Story
    "Wonderful Alternate History with Action!"

    Two WWII American destroyermen are transferred to an alternate world where they discover new species. They form an Alliance with the Lemurians, a cat-monkey like race, against the the fierce Grik, a lizard like species who eat their enemies.

    In this eighth installment there are numerous battles going on at many locations. General Alden is still pinned down and waiting for relief in Indiaa. Japanese General Niwa has shared tactical strategy with Grik Hige Halik and they are making progress in their battles. But the madman Japanese Commander, Kurokawa, using the Griks as tools, isn’t seeking to help the Grik in their fights. Instead he hopes to lure the American and Alliance into battle at Maa-ni-la where he plans to annihilate them with the new ships.

    Reddy and his Allies have been busy building new planes and new ships. Although a few troops are sent on individual missions the majority of the forces are being readied to face Kurolawa and the Grik.

    Imperial Commodore Jenks is planning the battles in the East against the Holy Dominion threat. Silva and others are trekking through jungles seeking other species of Grik that may be friendly like Laurence. There are a few new groups that are discovered and agree to get involved including some Jaguar warriors, another species of superlizards being led by an American and unexplained spies. There is also a new group that is making attempts to align with Kurokawa and the Grik.

    This series is full of action and good character development. I enjoy the battle strategies and scenes as well as the personal interaction.

    Audio Notes: I love listening to this series. Dufris' narration has character distinction and scene excitement. It is effective to help me get wrapped up in and lost in the story.

    "Absolutely incredible."

    This is a series of books that never fails to please. It is incredibly well written and read to perfection by William Dufris. Few authors have held my attention in the same imaginative way that Taylor Andersons books have.

    "Yet another fantastic story"

    Anderson's series is just getting better and better. Each story is tightly woven, astounding given the shear scope of the narrative. Difris' narration is brilliant, I can't praise it enough. His voice for Dennis Silva is a hoot.
    As a high school history teacher, I have actually begun recommending the book to students who show interest in World War II and historical fiction. It's hard to pin this down as scifi or fantasy because it walks the line so well.
    The highest praise I can give is it has kept me up late at night saying, 'one more chapter.'

    "Such a unique series"

    Other reviewers have commented on the ever increasing scope of these books as a negative, but I really enjoy it - it gives a real sense of the vastness of the world and narrative, and gives the many characters plenty of room to run without feeling repetitive. I personally love watching the continued (and rather plausible) technological and industrial advancements too. This book is one of my favorites of this series, so far.
