I was somewhat undecided whether to continue listening to the series because of a series of reviews stating that in Malestrom, the story of the destroyermen had become boring and uninteresting. I did not find this to be the case. I remained fully engaged by the story which continued to unfold in interesting ways. The characters in the story continued to develop which to added depth to the alternate world in which the story takes place. I enjoyed this book just as much as I enjoyed the first two and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the first two books in this series.

The first two books were great, this was is okay, but starts out really slow. Not much happens the first few hours, just more recap on what happened in the first two books. Any character or event that's tied to something that previously happened each gets a 10 minute recap. This might actually be good if it has been a while since you read the first two books, if not, the first quarter or so of this book is pretty boring.

You have to congratulate Taylor Anderson. He has created a richly detailed set of nations, characters and relationships in the kind of detail that allows the listener to really immerse themselves in the characters many of who are given genuine depth.
And when the action does finally start it is an excellent, highly detailed battle seen from several angles and described in vivid detail with some clever twists. Bravo!
The word of warning though, if like me you have already devoured the first two in relatively quick succession, is that the first part of the book really does take its time to recap events and character back stories. In some ways this is understandable because as books are written there will be a significant gap between publication dates but even then I would say there is at least an hour or so of real "padding". It's worth getting through and I will carry on with this series but possibly leaving a longer gap between books.
But that said . . . I would recommend this series to most people I know in a heartbeat!
