View our feature on Taylor Anderson's Distant Thunders.

The fourth thrilling adventure in the Destroyermen series.

After the battle in which the men of the destroyer Walker and their Lemurian allies repelled the savage Grik, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy is shocked by the arrival of a strange ship captained by one Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy-an island-nation populated by the descendants of British East Indiamen swept through the rift centuries before.

With the Walker undergoing repairs, Reddy already has a great deal on his hands. For the Grik will return, and Reddy will need all hands on deck to fight them off when they next attack. But Jenks' uncertain loyalties make Reddy question whether he can trust the man.

As tension between the Allies and the Imperials mount, Reddy will come to realize that his suspicions are not misplaced-and that a greater danger than the Grik is closer than he ever suspected...

Review: Distant Thunders (Destroyermen #4)

User Review  - Kevin Baker - Goodreads

The opening of the "second trilogy"? Paced a bit slower, more of a cliffhanger at the end, still excellent page-turning writing. I'm really enjoying this series. Read full review

Review: Distant Thunders (Destroyermen #4)

User Review  - Glen Robinson - Goodreads

More of the same, perhaps not so much of it. The book focuses more on the growing relationship with the British empire that exists in this parallel world and the potential for war or alliance that may come from knowing these people. But there's much less battle, and a lot more talking. Read full review
