    The writing has really evolved in this third book Nice Hitchcockian use of suspense holding us on the edges of our seats until we just about can't stand it It will be interesting to see where we go with the new cultures and developments in established ones Yes the technological achievements seem a bit accelerated at times what with the limitations present but this is science fiction so I'm willing to cut some slack in th

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“Anderson has brought a fresh new perspective to the tale of crosstime shipwreck” –SM Stirlin It just keeps getting better It s clear that Taylor Anderson had an epic in mind when he created this series here he finishes book three yet it s clear the story has only begun This story is insanely good Taylor s biography tells that he s a history professor which is probably what makes his story so rich His description of war seems so authentic both sides trying to achieve an advantage over the other with each advantage seeming at times over whelming yet at others so fleeting With the end of book 3 both sides have suffered but neither is out It s a race between the Grik and their Japanese allies and the Americans and their Lemurian allies as to who will recover first and press the fight forwardFor now I have to put down Destroyermen and read my book club choice during which I ll be anxious to start Distant Thunders
