Présentation de l'éditeur

National bestselling author Taylor Anderson’s explosive WWII alternate-history series continues as a do-or-die battle is waged that risks far more than anyone bargained for.

The long-planned raid on the heart of the Grik Empire has grown more ambitious—and dangerously ill defined. Only Matthew Reddy, commander of the old destroyer USS Walker, seems focused on its original intent.

Many Lemurians see an opportunity to reconquer their sacred homeland, which was stolen long ago, and have no intention of simply striking a blow and then pulling back. Others, Lemurian and human, have their own agendas—which may not be in the best interests of the Alliance. Complicating matters further is Reddy’s suspicion that his task force is being stalked by an unknown power bent on aiding the Grik for reasons of its own.

As the raid begins and chaos reigns, Reddy has no choice but to go all-in, risking everything in a desperate act that results in a sprawling, nightmarish battle on the beaches of “Grik City,” on the very decks of Walker, and in the labyrinthine passageways of the Celestial Palace itself.

The final cost could be more than Matt Reddy—or the Alliance—can bear.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ordinary Men just Doing the Extraordinary. 21 mai 2014
Par joseph r. thorsky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
When one tries to give "war" a form, a substance and a meaning that is explainable and comprehensible to those of a generation of Americans who have grown and never really experienced or lived it, is difficult enough today, where "war" is just expected to be antiseptically clean, short lived and perfectly fought under rules and behaviors universally agreed to, expected and followed.
Taylor Anderson's latest "Deadly Shores" novel captures "war" as it truly is, and not what we would wish, want or believe it should be. War is humanity and the human condition with all its virtues and its vices, the inspirational and the depressing and all the good and the bad; beautiful and ugly that makes us so much alike and different at the same time. His efforts to capture and describe this essence and state is "Right on target!"(Without the aid of a Norton bombsight) and is indeed deserving of a nodding and the silent smiling approving words of thanks from that special World War II generation of Americans (The Best we had to give) who are slowly but inevitably passing and leaving the World's Stage. Although they may be gone and have left us, it is their everlasting legacy and our own true inheritance which is reflected and demonstrated by our own frail and fragile humanness and the idealism and the reverence that goes from being an "American" that Taylor Anderson correctly identifies in "Deadly Shores".
I highly recommend this novel and the entire series to anyone who has a passion for science fiction and history with this cautionary admonition.
"Warning! Highly Addictive when Read."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book in a great series! 16 mai 2014
Par MDS - Publié sur Amazon.com

Deadly Shores is an action packed episode in the Destroyermen series that sets the stage for some new enemies to enter the fray. While the advances made in this book are substantial the heroes are just beginning to learn just how big their war may really become.

The characters are fun as usual. The development of the Human/Cat society, science, war machine which has been such a big part of previous books was a bit lacking here but all in all it didn't really detract from the story though I hope we see more of it in the next book.

Fans of the series enjoy! If you haven't read this series before I urge you to do so!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Anderson is Top 5 in Destroyermen series 20 mai 2014
Par CHICO AK/WA - Publié sur Amazon.com

Rating given because I have read every book in this series and all are 5's or better. There is nothing to dislike as the story is so awesome. These Books are fast reads because you cannot put them down, have to find out what's on the next page. Tsylor is with L.E. & S.M., Drake, Ringo and a few others that are top in Si-Fi & Fantasy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked the early books but now the series is beginning to seem like a soap opera, unending and with no resolution in sight. 7 juin 2014
Par John B. - Publié sur Amazon.com

I liked the alternate world concept and the books have some good characters. However, as the series has progressed the author has invented more and more enemies to keep the conflict going. It is beginning to turn into a "war porn" series. For those who love battle scenes and lots of gore this would be a good read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interminable, yet somehow still entertaining 27 mai 2014
Par Tom Alaerts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This book series offers light, escapist reading that in my opinion could work well as an anime series, perhaps even better than on the page.
The alternative world setting is amusing, and it is all wtitten vividly enough that you can picture it all well. I would normally not read this kind of book, but I like reading about 2nd world war technology and big lizards, so what is not to like.
But, now with the series progressing already 9 books, there are several irritations for me:
- In essence with the action happening on multiple fronts, the general progress per book can be pretty slow. In this book this is less pronounced than in the last few books because a major campaign that was in essence necessary since the start of the series takes up half the book. Yet perhaps a few less pages on the big campaign and a bit more story progress onthe American front would have offered a better balance.
- Characters are introduced in every book again. I think that it would make little sense to start reading this series in any but the first book, so it would be better to dispense with these introductions, or perhaps put them as a separate section. I find these background refreshers really slowing down the narrative as there are so many characters.
- Without spoiling the story, the series is obviously being milked to make it continue as long as possible. It comes as no surprise that new foes rear their head. Personally I would have much preferred a strict original plan to tell a complete and above all tight story in say 3 or 4 volumes.
All this may seem overly critical, and while these are indeed serious minuses, it must be said that in general the books are quick and entertaining reads for everyone who is young at heart, and this latest one is no exception.
I do hope to see more of Halik in the next book, one of the most interesting characters.
