Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle. Meanwhile, the Japanese juggernaut Amagi, also trapped in this strange world, is under Grik control---with her fanatical commander approaching madness. And soon they will have amassed a force that no amount of firepower and technology will be able to stop.As the raging conflict approaches, Reddy, his crew, his allies, and his loved ones face annihilation. But if there is one thing they have learned about their new world, it is that hope - and help - may be just over the horizon.

Still damn good but he makes you wait!

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!
