Publisher's Summary

The long-planned raid on the heart of the Grik Empire has grown more ambitious - and dangerously ill-defined. Only Matthew Reddy, commander of the old destroyer USS Walker, seems focused on its original intent.
Many Lemurians see an opportunity to reconquer their sacred homeland, which was stolen long ago, and have no intention of simply striking a blow and then pulling back. Others, Lemurian and human, have their own agendas - which may not be in the best interests of the Alliance. Complicating matters further is Reddy's suspicion that his task force is being stalked by an unknown power bent on aiding the Grik for reasons of its own.
As the raid begins and chaos reigns, Reddy has no choice but to go all in, risking everything in a desperate act that results in a sprawling, nightmarish battle on the beaches of "Grik City", on the very decks of Walker, and in the labyrinthine passageways of the Celestial Palace itself.
The final cost could be more than Matt Reddy - or the Alliance - can bear.

Fastest in the series

What did you love best about Deadly Shores?

I liked how this one moved things along. The battle was taken to the enemy! I like how the newer characters developed. While some of the older characters were taken away (no spoilers here)


What other book might you compare Deadly Shores to and why?

None, haven't came across any which are similar


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

I know it sounds stupid, but Petty the bird lizard thing has some great one liners!


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

As much as I liked it, no. The book is just too long to do so, even if you speed the narration up a little.


Any additional comments?

Once again I feel angry because of the ending. Just once I want the ending not to be a wind up to buy the next in the series!

Deadly Shores is another brilliant masterpiece.

Would you consider the audio edition of Deadly Shores to be better than the print version?

I drive long distances and don't have a lot of time for print. The narrator does such a great job with the voices of the characters, he really makes the story come alive.


What did you like best about this story?

I have heard all nine books in the series. The story line is so powerful I have turned at least 10 others onto the series and we are so addicted to it. I can't wait for the tenth book. The whole concept is great.


Which scene was your favorite?

When they shot the band..


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Two moments. When Commodore Garrett died, and after the big battle on Walker and they confirmed Chief Grey died.


Any additional comments?

Thanks for not killing Silva or Lawrence.
