Summary

In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire.
But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.
Meanwhile, the struggle continues on other fronts near and far: in the jungles of Borno in distant Southern Africa and in the Americas, where the allies are finally learning the terrible truth about the twisted Dominion.
The Alliance is on the offensive everywhere, but their enemies have a few surprises, including new weaponry and new tactics...and a stunning geographic advantage that Reddy never suspected. Until now.

I can not wait for book 9. Book 8 is Great !

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.

Endless, endless, endless series

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This series was like climbing a tree. One starts on a solid trunk of a story line, then encounters a few interesting side branches, but you are still firmly attached to the trunk. As the books continue, the reader finds himself in a tangle of increasingly tiny, parallell story branches, the plot line lost. This last book reads as an English assignment: "write a 5,000 word essay on....".

Has Storm Surge turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yeah. Many authors that develop a lot of interesting characters, and perhaps have a contractual obligation to their publishers, end up ruining a good story by dragging it out.

What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He has excellent voice characterization, but after the first 3 or 4 books, even he can't keep up with the increasing senseless complexity.
