Publisher's Summary

Stuck in an alternate universe during World War II, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy of the U.S.S. Walker has found an unlikely but invaluable ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win.
However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue. For when Reddy and Jenks report the situation to the New Britain Company, they are met with scorn and disbelief. It soon becomes obvious that the ruthless Company is attempting to overthrow the Imperial Throne - and that someone involved knows where Sandra and Rebecca are. From the halls of power to the ballrooms of the nobility, Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day.

Each book in this series is better than the last!

If you have not started this series yet, I envy you. If you have started this series, than you are likely in the same boat as myself...in agony, knowing there will be such a long wait for book 6. I wish there was a device that could erase specific parts of my memory so that I could go back and listen the these books again for the first time.

I enjoyed this book even more than the first 4 even though there was much less action. It's obvious Mr. Anderson is setting up the sequence for future events, and I usually hate that, but he did such a great job, I'm afraid the actual events are going to be anti-climactic. I'm sure my fear is unwarranted.

As always, a superior performance by the narrator. I absolutely forget that all those characters are coming from just one person. Well done Mr. Dufris!

LOVE THIS SERIES

The series is terrific and this book is another WONDERFUL hit. Five stars should also be awarded to the narrator William Dufris! I love the way he allows each character a voice and brings the world written by the author to life.

I have never contemplated returning a book .......

What would have made Rising Tides better?

Difficult to say I could not get into the book and am unlikley to finish it

Has Rising Tides put you off other books in this genre?

I will try others but NOT in this series

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The alternative Earth story is something that has some attraction for me.

Any additional comments?

I rarely do not finish a book even if it is tedious and predictable. With this book I feel that there is nothing in the plot that I can associate with. Maybe if I had read earlier books in the series I would view it differently but I doubt it.
