After a year away from Taylor Anderson's "other earth", I'm starting to wait less eagerly at the next book in the series. Its fun, irreverent and entertaining and the expanding world is interesting but between the meat of the pages, I kept waiting for more ground to be covered. With a cast that now easily spans beyond a few dozen, I'd expect the novels to expand to fit the multiple plot lines and/or move slightly faster.
As much as the inner kid in me loves in the idea of dinosaur piloted zeppelins duking it out with a fleet of vintage WWII boats and planes piloted by Humans and Lemurs, I'm worried by the end I'll of experienced too much of a good thing.
There's only so many times Walker, Mahan Salissa and Catalina can make death defying escapes. Only so many Human enclaves that seem feasibly to be "off the grid" as far as the Grik and Lemurians are concerned and only so many antics that sideshow (stooges) trio of Dennis, Larry and Moe can perform.... before all the troupes are tired.
I'm all for this series but I'd like to see it wrap up. Perhaps an end could lead to more adventures but for now I just want the feeling that this series has a conclusion.... even if just for a moment.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
As soon as a new book is released I immediately wait for the next one. I have always been pleased with the characters moving in and out of the chapters. I don't know how the author keeps everything moving like he does. Maybe submarines are coming soon as the alliance keeps coming up with new weapons. The torpedo was a game changer in this one.
So in a word, YES I recommend this book and it would be a shame that an avid reader has not started getting to know the characters from the first moment of the first book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I like Silva. He keeps coming into each story when a light or serious moment is needed.
What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?
He does a great job and is clearly the voice of the series.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I finished it in 4 days. I love a long book when it is so interesting.
Any additional comments?
I wonder what devious plans the Japanese Admiral will come up with next. It is hard to imagine that in a real society that this guy would not have been executed or ended his life himself. He just suffered one heck of a pasting.

Waited a long time for the next episodes and had almost given up. Storm Surge is as good as the rest now getting on with 8 & 9
I really enjoyed this book, it moved the story on well. the new allies on both sides opens up an already massive story
This has been a throughly enjoyable series. Taylor created such rich, relatable characters, and the twists and turns in the story keep me glued to the audio pages. William on the other hand is a master storyteller. His rendition of the various characters is absolutely superb, full of feeling , or not, as required, his English so well enunciated. A dynamic storytelling duo par excellence.
