    What can I say here This is prime, number 1, grade A brain candy No redeeming characteristics hereno deep literary meaningsno nuanced story telling This is the story of an obsolete WW1 destroyer and a destroyer escort of the same age thrown into a world of wooden ships, intelligent lemur like creatures that the humans call monkey cats and large also intelligent carnivorous lizards who don t take prisoners after battle They simply eat the enemy.Oh there s also an ultra modern W What can I say here This is prime, numbe

    I m surprised that I am actually enjoying these books Alternate history is so not my thing, but this has been kind of fun I like the characters They are well drawn and down to earth There is such a strong conflict of good vs evil that flows throughout the whole story The story moves at a nice pace with something new always coming into play When I started this, I wasn t sure if I wanted to read it, but I m glad I did SO 4 STARS.

    I am not a big fan of reading the second book in a trilogy or series and skipping the first book, but I found myself in this situation when a new title at the library caught my eye Destroyermen Crusade is a novel in that famous science fiction fantasy tradition, the transplanted people into a parallel universe In this case, two United States destroyers are apparently in the midst of a battle with a Japanese Battle Cruiser Amiga during the Battle of the Java Sea in World War II, when as a resu I am not a big fan of reading the se

    Crusade by Taylor Anderson good honest old fashioned beat the the baddies up sci fi military romp Aha but wait there s , a whole lotSecond episode has all the bones for some epic mashup battles, medieval versus 19th and 20th century technologies, something to definitely get your chomps around and have some fun.

    I found book one in the Destroyermen series to be fun and entertaining, if a bit flat and cheesy, style wise Book two, though, actually had me wanting to stand up and cheer Not that it s any less flat and cheesy, but there are some quintessential qualities that Taylor Anderson brings to this series that I ve been missing in sci fi and military fiction lately.Duty, honor, bravery, sacrifice, and heroism Men acting like men Yes, the women both human and Lemurian are pretty brave too A w I found book one in the Destroyermen series to be fun and entertaini
