Title: Straits of Hell Series: Destroyermen Author: Taylor Anderson Rating: 0 of 5 Battle Axes Genre: Fantasy Pages: DNF Format: Kindle My Thoughts: I had to quit at the 10% mark because it was obvious that things were getting bigger in scope instead of resolved. I read my last Destroyermen novel last year and was on edge about continuing the series due to Anderson simply bloating things up with new groups of humans, all over the place. This time I quit at the French/Italian/German/something group that shows up to ally with the Japanese. I think these are the french nazi's from the previous book. Just how many groups of lost humans have come to this world, why have they not connected before and why does Anderson do this to us? So I am done. I don't care how well written these might be, Anderson is out of control in regards to story and plot and I won't help him anymore by buying these. "

Still an interesting series as the Destroyermen's world grows. Good battles scenes with their various enemies. Weapons evolution stays coherent and intriguing. It needs better maps and a stronger sense of strategy than we will fight evil where it appears. ( )

Reddy is leading an overstretched coalition against both the Grikk and a new enemy. A good read. ( )

Taylor Anderson’s DESTROYERMEN series is getting boring. That’s because, with each book, it's more like "Ground Hog Day"...same stuff different day. Some fighting, some politics, some enemies, some friends. The characters are all interesting and it's fun to see their next adventure...but, this adventure is just like the last adventure...but it’s all stuff we’ve seen before. The book does not advance the plot, much, except there are a couple of memorable battles--we've seen those before. Don't try to read this one without the first nine. I've read every book and I'm tired of them. Please, can we just end this? Next time, I'll just read the summary and be shed of Taylor Anderson. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451470613, Hardcover)

New York Times bestselling author Taylor Anderson’s phenomenal alternate history Destroyermen series continues as a game-changing conspiracy throws the hope of honor, trust, and survival into chaos.... 

Matt Reddy’s old Asiatic Fleet destroyer USS Walker has been mysteriously transported to an alternate version of earth. Here WWII is no longer raging, and Reddy and his crew have been trying to find a new place for themselves in this strange new world.

Now, along with the felinoid Lemurians and Imperial allies, they fight to keep the reptilian Grik, a race growing in supremacy, from reconquering the Lemurians’ ancestral home on Madagascar. Reddy and his crew are exhausted, far from reinforcements, and wildly outnumbered, so the odds seem greater than ever before. As for the fate of the Americas, Don Hernan and the evil Dominion have gathered to annihilate the forces behind the walls of Fort Defiance as a shadowy power with an agenda all its own rises with chilling resolve.

As the war teeters on a knife-edge, a tipping point may have been reached at last—and cold steel and hot-blooded valor will remain the ultimate weapons.
