Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker find themselves caught between the nation they swore to defend and the allies they promised to protect. For even as the Allies and the Empire of New Britain Isles stand united against the attacks of both the savage Grik and the tenacious Japanese, the "Holy Dominion" - a warped mixture of human cultures whose lust for power overshadows even the Grik - is threatening to destroy them both with a devastating weapon neither can withstand.

A smashin good read and an excellent performance

It has been my experience that some series suffer from drag. This book is even more high paced that the earlier ones. The books keep getting better and better, more story lines, unexpected twist, triumphs mixed with defeats. Taylor does an excellent job of blending a wonderful concept with the lives and experiences of his characters. What a purely exciting story. Has me longing for the next one already.

I love this series.

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

The Destroyermen series is among my favorites in my audiobook library.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoy the simplicity of the characters in this series. If I want dark, conflicted antiheroes then I have other books to read. If I want real, gritty, often unlikable characters (that seem to be in vogue these days) then I'll go to work. The characters in this series are unlike the varied and inconsistent personalities that make characters more

Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love William Dufris' work with the Destroyermen series. It is difficult for me to immerse myself in his other performances because when I hear a character in some of his other works all I can think to myself is,

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

I downloaded this the first day it was available from Audible. I was finished with it three days later and started right from the beginning again. I did the same thing with Distant Thunders and Rising Tides.

Any additional comments?

There are people that like to read stories and then sit down to analyze, parse, nitpick, and discuss how the craft of the writing process. I cannot express how much I do not want to have dinner with such people.

If you enjoy science fiction in general and military science fiction in particular, this is the first place I would send you. Start with the first one,

where is the rest of the series?

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried with anger when I found out that no 6 was not the last book; see comments below

Any additional comments?

I assumed that no 6 Firestorm was the last book in the series, but it is not. Research shows four more titles. I rang audible and they have no knowledge of these future titles and if and when they might have them. This is very annoying, as I would not have wasted my money if I had known I could not get the whole series. Cracking story buy it looks like Audible has dropped the ball, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL, NOT IMPRESSED!

Another Winner for Taylor Anderson

What made the experience of listening to Firestorm the most enjoyable?

Book 6 in the series and just as engrossing as the first. So descriptive and well written it draws the "reader" into the story and you feel part of it. You feel the pain of us walker and her crew. The absolute size of the homes and territories. Like home but different.The narration is spot on William Dufris' is so good at creating the different voices of all the characters

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


Any additional comments?

When do we get books 7 & 8
