Publisher Description

The skies explode in this thrilling alternate history novel in Taylor Anderson's New York Times bestselling Destroyermen series.

After the terrible battle between the men of the destroyer USS Walker and their Lemurian allies against the savage Grik, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy is shocked by the arrival of a strange ship captained by Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy—an island-nation populated by the descendants of British East Indiamen swept through the rift centuries before.
 
With the Walker undergoing much-needed repairs, Reddy knows the Grik have only been fended off, not defeated, and he will need all hands on deck to fight them off when they next attack--but Jenks’ loyalties seem uncertain.
 
As tension between the Allies and the Imperials mount, Reddy will come to realize that his suspicions are not misplaced—and that a greater danger than the Grik is about be revealed...

Distant Thunders

Taylor Anderson has a unique way of keeping you in a very suspenceful way while you are reading or really while you are placed directly into plot of each of his stories.
An author that has found a way to make his stories believable, readable and you just can't put the books down!!

Good read!

I've enjoyed the first 3 books a good deal so far. My only real issue is how the writer references his characters; how characters are referenced is constantly switching. They are sometimes referred to by first names, then other times by their last names, then sometimes their titles, occasionally by nicknames - very confusing! It's no big deal for the main characters, they're easy to remember, but the long list of secondary characters ...it's like you have to remember three times as many characters than what are actually in the stories.

That's the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. I'd give 4.5 if I could. Now, off to start the 4th book!

A sure thing

Start with the first three books and then pick up this one, I've waited a year for it and Taylor didn't disappoint. This book sets the stage for a new epic adventure for the Walker and her crew. I read this book in one sitting and the only thing wrong with it is page 382. The end came to fast for me and now I must wait for who knows how long to continue this amazing story. Taylor, if you keep writing books I'll keep buying and reading them, that's a promise.
