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...

This is the 4th book in the destroyermen series and I loved it. This series is based on the concept of a WWII destroyer being sucked into an alternative reality where humans didn't evolve but other species are the advanced species. There are lots of cool naval battles in these books and lots of action and adventure. If you like alternative history fiction, military or naval fiction, science fiction (or even fantasy) you may like these books. Reminds me of other books by S.M. Stirling and Harry Turtledove. If you like those authors you'll love this series. The 4th book starts a bit slower then the other ones (which is to be expected based on the end of the 3rd book) and the author spends too long refamiliarizing the reader with all the cast of characters, but it soon picks up pace and it ends with another cliffhanger to set up the next book. I can't wait.
