Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the USS Walker, have chosen sides in a war not of their making. They have allied with the Lemurians - a mammalian race whose peaceful existence is under attack from the warlike, reptilian Grik. The Lemurians are vastly outnumbered and ignorant of warfare, and even the guns and technology of Walker cannot turn the tide of battle. Luckily, they are not alone. Reddy finally finds Mahan, the other destroyer that passed through the rift. Together, the two American ships will teach the Lemurians to fight and stand against the bloodthirsty Grik - or so they think.
For there is another vessel that does not belong on these strange seas - the massive Japanese battle cruiser Amagi, the very ship that Walker was fleeing from when the rift took them. Like Mahan, it followed them through. And now Amagi is in the hands of the Grik.

"Dramatic.... At heart this novel is about how honor and ideals can bend or break under the stressful, life-and-death conditions of total war." ( Publishers Weekly)

Woman's Perspective

When I looked at reviews of this book 95% were from guys and rated very high, so I got them for my husband and he loved them as well. When I got around to giving these a try I was not dissappointed. Initially (while in our dimension) they were a little heavy on the military jargon, but once I got past that and they got through the squall, it was great. There is a lot of fighting, but this book wasn't just "guns ablazin'" over MY head military mumbo jumbo I didn't get. I could not wait to find out what happened next. I'm on #3 now and still into it.

Excellent Listen

At first I passed over this book series, because the plot did not catch my interest: Old Destroyer even by WWII standards, Alternate world, primitive people/monkeys ----- BUT I was wrong! This book and its narrator turned out to be very exciting and a page turner in a audible way. Obviously, I enjoyed both books so far in this series, but I thought this one was better than the first. Maybe it's just because characters grow on you. Looking forward to the next book!

Excellent continuation!

Taylor Anderson has definitely hooked me into this series. I'm tempted to make the crack that the Americans not content with saving the world in every other modern work of fiction they produce have got bored and are now saving other ones too! Okay, totally unfair but these things make me smile.

This is a series that has takes its time to draw the reader in. The characters and their motivations are well captured showing both their strengths and weaknesses, their nobility at times as well as their failings. All done without prejudice. The Gricks make a classic fantasy enemy and their unexpected alliance in this book is fascinating. I will be interested to see how fairly Anderson deals with this in the later novels.

So, if you like a fantasy series with plenty of action, good characters that you can really get inside of and a strong storyline this series is for you. Well, it certainly is so far!
