Revue de presse

Praise for Taylor Anderson and the Destroyermen novels:

“Taylor Anderson has brought a fresh new perspective to the tale of a cross-time shipwreck. The action is gripping and riveting.”—New York Times Bestselling Author S. M. Stirling

“I cannot recommend Taylor Anderson too highly.” —David Weber, Author of War Maid’s Choice

“Taylor Anderson and his patched-up four-stackers have steamed to the forefront of alternative history.”—E. E. Knight, Author of Baltic Gambit

“Readers who enjoy S. M. Stirling, Jules Verne, and Harry Turtledove will find this series enjoyable.”—SFRevu

“Intriguing what-ifs and convolutions by the boatload combine with churning, bloodthirsty warfare.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Taylor Anderson...will have readers in awe.”—Alternative Worlds

“Action sci-fi doesn’t get significantly better than this.”—Booklist

“At heart, this novel is about how honor and ideals can bend or break under the stressful, life-and-death conditions of total war.”—Publishers Weekly

 

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.

HASH(0x95bdc984) 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."

HASH(0x95bdcbd0) étoiles sur 5 Starting to sense the series will never end, but still an OK summer-type read. 11 mai 2014
Par Olin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The 9th book in the series - and turning into a never-ending story. There seems to be a trend of such series by a number of prominent authors; i.e., keep publishing as long as they sell. A deadly foe that never is quite defeated or new enemies cropping up whenever one is on the way out. For a new reader, I have no problem recommending the first book in the series - as long as the reader then decides whether they want to continue from there with a series that may never end. By the 9th book there is little new character development. There is also more actions/behavior in this one that makes a reader sit back and think, "Huh?" "That's unbelievable" "I don't buy that behavior/speech", etc. However, having said those things, I still rather liked the book - at least by the criteria of interesting battles and wanting to know more what happens next. Attribute it to the skill of the author. The endless nature of the series and flaws in this volume want me to give it two stars, but four stars for keeping me interest: (2+4)/2=3.

HASH(0x95bdcb94) 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

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.

HASH(0x95bdce88) étoiles sur 5 Great Book in a great series! 16 mai 2014

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!

HASH(0x95bdcee8) étoiles sur 5 Anderson is Top 5 in Destroyermen series 20 mai 2014

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.
