Présentation de l'éditeur

Espionage and depth charges were not on the agenda for marine archeologist Dr. George Washington when he left the harbor that morning. While searching for a sunken vessel containing a secret shipment of lost Nazi gold, he witnessed a meteor crash to earth. The impact opened a time gate which propelled him back to World War II where he has been taken aboard an American submarine and imprisoned as a spy. Faced with an execution, he reveals to the sub commander he knows the allies have broken the German code Enigma. Dr. Washington comes to the realization he did not travel back in time; the sub traveled to the future and is manned by German impostors. With the knowledge their valuable code has been broken, the Germans head back through the time gate to 1943. George must now journey to the past and stop this rogue submarine from altering the outcome of the war. While trapped in an era and a war he had only experienced from watching the History Channel, Dr. Washington is forced to kill his grandfather in order to stop the enemy operatives. His life and the war suddenly take a turn he never expected.

This is an OUTSTANDING book and I am very surprised at being the first person to give it a review. I suspect, however, that I won't be the last.

"Eternal Patrol" is a tapestry woven with threads of adventure, intrigue, murder, World War II history, science, science fiction, and suspense. And just when I thought I knew the direction in which the story was going - ZIP went the rug from under my feet.

Because of this book, I have a greatly increased respect for submariners and the dangers they face - particularly during times of war. I was invited on board an "Aussie" submarine for a brief tour during the 80's, and Mr. Wallace brought back the sights, sounds and feelings I remember from that visit - minus the "pings" and their aftermath!!

Sometimes, a particular sentence in a book stands out for me. And it may be of significance to me alone. The following is such a sentence: "When you know for sure that you're going to die, there's nothing left to fear."

This books is a "keeper," for certain. And I may well order the paperback edition - just in case a passing meteor knocks out my Kindle.

Book Review: Eternal Patrol by Michael Wallace
Reviewed by J Bryden Lloyd

Writing Style - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
I enjoyed this very competent narrative and flowing style, in a book where the past and the present collide violently.
The dialogue was carefully plotted, making the characters as real as the reader and the underlying plot, giving a new lease of life and a new direction, to the age-old `nazi gold' hunt, was well crafted.

Character Development - 3.5/5.0 (Good)
Initial introductions to the characters are well drawn and give you a reasonably balanced understanding of everyone.
Although the main characters develop nicely (in both time zones) I was a little disappointed that there was very little depth to many of the supporting cast. Don't get me wrong, they had a role to fulfil and did so admirably within their boundaries, but I did feel a handful of them deserved a little more from the author.
On the plus side, the interactions between many of the characters were excellent. Sometimes fun, mostly serious, but always proportionate to their position in the tale.

Descriptive - 4.5/5.0 (Excellent)
There is no doubt in my mind that we have an author here who pays great attention to the details he wants the reader to have, but he also makes sure you need to visualise and create the scenes. Everything from the library, to the battles, to the submersibles and the crew actions, were painstakingly worked to pull the reader firmly in, and keep them there.
For me, the only scene that didn't fulfil my expectations was the one where George hijacked the Australian boat. Although a means to an end, I felt that the descriptive reactions of the people on the boat were a little off.

Language & Grammar - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
I don't know whether it occurred more than once, but the one real error that sticks in my mind was the word `defiantly' appearing in place of the word `definitely'. Beyond this, yes, there were a few odd missing words and a handful of other, very minor things, but to be honest, a proof-sweep and a minor editing run would sort it out in no time.
Otherwise I found the language, grammar and word selection to be very good indeed. Nothing was over-technical or over-described, making this a good read for a wide range of abilities.

Plot -4.0/5.0 (Very Good) - MINOR SPOILERS
This is cleverly devised. Playing on the old "what happens if you go back in time and change the course of history?" question, a man with designs on finding a time-gate that was stumbled upon during the war, goes to the South Pacific in search of it. The fact that it is also a probably resting place for a ship-load of nazi gold, just adds a lot more to the story and provides some excellent sub-plots.
In this case, changing the course of history meant changing the course of the war. As George moves back to 1943, he wisely refuses to let the American sub captain know the outcome of the war, but when things turn out not to be as they seem, he does give away a single, crucial piece of information.
Maybe it was just me, but the end - for me - felt a little disjointed. I wondered where the sub itself had ended up, and it wasn't entirely clear if, after the earlier events of the story, George (on a different timeline, and with the changes to his past) was still the scientist being approached with the research job.
Surely he would have been an entirely unconnected person?

General - 4.0/5.0 (Very Good)
My own ramblings aside, this is a very good book, and one worth taking the time to read. The complex twist of plot and sub-plots are brilliantly crafted to keep the reader involved, and it's a thoroughly enjoyable ride.
Recommended to any lovers of war, drama, thriller or sci-fi. This is an all-round good guy.
A solid 4 stars.

Story line is good. Reading pace is great. Story wants to pull you into the book and at times you can feel yourself experiencing the characters feelings and pain. In my opinion, worth reading.

There were a few places where words were omitted in a sentence, but they were far and few between. I only noticed them because I "proofread" even as I read the books. Most people would subconsciously fill in the missing preposition. There were a couple of references near the end of the book concerning the actions of the sailors as they worked to control the damage to the sub in the heat of the battle that could have been phrased more accurately. The one that sticks out the most in my mind makes reference to the men making repairs in what "...appeared to him as panic and chaos was really a well-structured drill" at Kindle location 3756. Having been through many Navy drills, the men's actions could be better described as "really choreographed action resulting from well-structured drill." Overall, this was an outstanding read with a great story line that kept my interest until the last line. I had never read any of Mr. Wallace's stories before "Eternal Patrol," but now I plan to investigate other titles in his cache of stories. Thanks for a story well written.
