    1. Matt Ready and the crew of the USS Walker are on the run from the Japanese when they find themselves transported into a strange new world that is eerily similar to the one they left behind. Although the stars and the land formations are the same, the people and cities are gone. Giant sea monsters swim in the seas and the islands are populated by great lumbering dinosaurs and smaller, faster, more deadly predators. It's truly as if they are on an alternate world where the dinosaurs never went ext [...]


    2. Into the Storm (Destroyermen #1, Audiobook) by Taylor Anderson -- Kind of like a John Wayne from "In Harm's Way" (movie) meets Anne McCafferry's "Decision at Doona" (book) Simply put:  This book was fun to listen to (read).  Recommended Early in the Second World War, in the south Pacific where the South Coral Sea meets the Indian Ocean a lone allied flotilla seeks desperately for a place to hide and slip past an overwhelming Japanese task force.  Well, two of those ships, the USS Mahan, and [...]


    3. Well, that was. easy to read. Probably around the 3.5 star mark.So what is it all about? Well, imagine if you will, 1940 something. The US navy has been in a pitched battle with the Japanese navy and had its collective ass spanked. Fleeing the Phillipines a fleet of US destroyers, including USS Wlaker and Mahan (apparently this is all historical truth) are engaged against the odds to protect the Exeter. The first 20% is basically a navel shit fight with the future looking grim for our young capt [...]


    4. 2.0 stars. This was a disappointment for me as I was really hoping to like this one. One of the problems with a first book in an ongoing series is that sometimes the author spends too much time on the set up and I think that was the case here. In addition to a relatively slow plot I thought the characters were fairly uninteresting and I didn't really find myself caring much about what happened to them. Notwithstanding the above, I did like the underlying premise of the book and will probably rea [...]


    5. The story and the characters:As promising as the story sounded and as well as it has been executed by Taylor Anderson, his characters didn't nearly keep up with this level. From an objective viewpoint, the story was riveting and suspenseful, introducing a lot of interesting twists and several exciting battle confrontations. Taylor Anderson spent a lot of time on the world building in this alternate Earth, as Captain Reddy (the main protagonist) and his crew entered 'another world, another war' t [...]


    6. Hummmr the first maybe quarter of this book I was interested and thought, "well if it stays like this it's a good solid 4". We open during the battle of the Java Sea an early navel battle of WWII and an unmitigated disaster for the allies. Our hero is the captain of an obsolete WWI era destroyer among the fleet trying to stem the Japanese advance.Waitrike part of that. I said the battle was an "unmitigated" disaster. It did interrupt the Japanese invasion fleet so, it wasn't "unmitigated" I supp [...]


    7. A World War II destroyer is sent back in time and joins lemur-people in a war against dinosaur-people.If that concept sounds awesome to you, then you should read this book. If that concept sounds silly to you, then I've just told you everything you need to know.Now, to be more precise, it's not entirely clear whether the USS Walker goes back in time or sidewise, but either way, the ship, on the run from a vastly superior Japanese fleet, winds up in an alternate timeline in which humans never evo [...]


    8. 3.5 - a bit ridiculous overall, in both premise and execution, but actually a lot of fun. I'll keep reading and see what I think.


    9. This is a solid first book. I was fascinated to see that the author is a forensic ballistic archeologist- I never knew such a thing existed, and how cool is that!?The book is a fairly straightforward world-walking premise, with a battered WWII destroyer falling into a world with no humans, but with intelligent seafaring monkey-cats (Lemurians) and a nasty intelligent reptilian enemy. We only get to know things from the crew's perspective, so the lizard baddies are still alien to us at the end of [...]


    10. I've been on vacation all week, doing my best not to think about work. Since I knew we'd be spending a few days camping, I decided to push the review pile to the side and do a little pleasure reading. I didn't have any specific titles in mind, but I knew precisely what kind of books I wanted to enjoy.Last on my reading list for the campsite was something the crosses genres, with a significant clash of culture and technology. I considered several possibilities, with Island in the Sea of Time by S [...]


    11. With a plot premise of an outdated warship in service during WW2 which gets pulled into an alternate world, this book had the potential to be pretty cheesy. Fortunately, this potential was unmet. In fact, there was a surprising amount of thought put into the book regarding the story. The author could have just created a world were weird stuff happens, actionish things take place, and the book has the purpose of just being entertaining; plenty of authors end there and send their books to print, b [...]


    12. I've had this on my radar for a while, and finally bought the 1st 5 books of the series to read on my annual fall travelling for work.This one didn't dissapoint! If you're a fan of 1632, this one is just as good.Lt. Commander Matthew Reddy and his ship the Walker, get sucked into a portal to a parallel Earth while running from the vastly more powerful Japanese Navy.They find a semi-prehistoric world, where, instead of humans, two different species rose to sentience the fierce, Raptor-like Grik, [...]


    13. 3.5 stars if it were possible.What a surprise this book wasd a good surprise at that. When I looked this book up on GR before deciding to read it, I looked no further than the list of main page genres. It had listed: sci-fi, time travel and war. I was sold right there. As this book started rolling along, and the time travel part happened.I was saying, "Oh no. Anything but that." From that point on, I kept expecting it to get hokey and lame, but it never entered those waters. It may have skirted [...]


    14. This book honestly felt like reading a novelized Real Time Strategy game. It was pretty boring for the first half and then when they leveled up the natives ships with cannons it had some sparks of interestingness, but still has cardboard characters and things that just were not well thought out at all. It was not horrible, it was just OK. And per good reads OK = 2 stars.



    15. I love historical fiction, especially if it is well thought out and we researched. Taylor Anderson's Destroyermen series is no exception; while he adds a Sci Fi twist to it, everything about this series is historically accurate and correct, sort of. As with any author a certain level of creative licence is expected and in this case it makes the whole story possible.Into The Storm is the first book in what was originally a trilogy, it establishes Captain Mathew Reddy; Commanding Officer of the WW [...]


    16. I made it about half way through before giving up on this one. Things just got weird for me. Strange animals showed up, there might or might not have been time travel, the ship's crew wasn't sure, so I wasn't either. In the end this one just wasn't for me.


    17. I discovered Taylor Anderson last year while looking for new reads, and I am glad I did. Destroyermen is the story of a pair of World War II destroyers at the beginning of World War 2 that are sucked into a dimensional rift to a world where dinosaurs didn't die out. Instead they evolved into an intelligence that threatens to destroy the other intelligent race of the planet, the Lemur like Lemurians. Enter the men from our Earth and their obsolete warships, which are ages ahead of anything the tw [...]


    18. During a battle in WW2, a pair of WW1-era destroyers enter a mysterious storm and are transported to an alternate Earth where dinosaurs never went extinct and humans never evolved. They run afoul of a ravenous civilization of intelligent dinosaurs, perhaps descended from raptors, and ally themselves with a declining race evolved from lemurs, finding themselves in war where their obsolete ships are the most advanced technological devices on the planet. The destroyers make a difference for a chang [...]


    19. Alternate universes are always a fascinating prospect. When one looks across the length and breadth of history, the inquiring mind wonders what could have been done differently. A lot of novels explore these possibilities, often altering an event, major or minor, from the past, and then expanding upon the consequences of that one event. For instance, in The Years of Rice and Salt, the author, Kim Stanley Robinson, asks: what would have happened if the plague that ravaged Europe had killed ninety [...]


    20. At a glance:Plot: * * * *Characters/Character Development: * * * * *Grip/Feeling: * * * * *Original concepts: * * * * *Summary/Verdict (Not an average): * * * *A few words about the book Ok. I made a big mistake. Mea Culpa. When i found out about the series and read what it was all about, i was like "Whaaaaaat? Seriously? A WWI destroyer that entered an peculiar event and travelled to a parallel universe Earth which underwent different evolutionary stages? Cheesy! Ohd dinosaurs? And cat people? [...]


    21. Book Report: Into the StormBy Evan J. Hunt Please read: Mature content warning! (I just ignore it while reading) Into the Storm by Taylor Anderson is the first book of the Destroyermen Series. In all, it is a great book, with suspense, humor, mystery, and action. It is the awesome start to a gripping series.Into the Storm starts in the early part of the Pacific Front in World War Two. The main protagonist: Captain Matthew Reddy, commanding officer of the obsolete destroyer USS Walker. Once stati [...]


    22. This book is kind of a cross between the movies "The Final Countdown" and "Jurassic Park". The basic premise is familiar, but with some twists. A WWII destroyer in a battle with the Japanese enters a mysterious storm and gets transported somewhere where the basic geography is the same, but there are no humans - but other sentient races. There are elements I love such as the ones you find in Pournelle/Niven's Lucifers Hammer, S.M. Stirling Nantucket & Emberverse series, and John Birmingham's [...]


    23. If you're a World War II book kind of person but someone who tends to avoidscience fiction, you might still give this book a closer look. I absolutelyenjoyed it as I haven't enjoyed science fiction in a while. If you are anSF sophisticate who needs hard science that explains how something happenedor why, this one won't appeal to you. But for the rest of us, you mighttruly enjoy this.It's early 1942 as this book begins, and a beleaguered American destroyer,hastily drug out of mothballs from its s [...]


    24. Alternate world science fiction, and fairly decent. The novel begins on an old American "four-stacker" destroyer in the middle of a naval battle somewhere in the Indonesian archipelago. Attempting to run into a squall to escape pursuing Japanese warships, the crew of the USS Walker find themselves in a alternate world, one where evolution took a different turn. They escape almost certain death at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Navy only to find themselves facing the Grik.Sure, it sounds sill [...]


    25. All I can say was that this book was stupid boring. I DNF’d around 30% because I just stopped caring. The premise actually somewhat appeals to me (of course, or I wouldn’t have read it in the first place) but the characterizations were so lacking that I could not even force myself to have interest in the story. The book switched POV between a few characters but they were all so boring that I couldn’t really tell the difference between them.Who wants to read a military sci-fi novel about a [...]


    26. Take a large helping of Tom Clancy and another of Harry Turtledove and you have an approximation of Into the Storm, by Taylor Anderson. This is a trip through time and space to the beleaguered destroyermen in Southeast Asian waters in WWII. The Japanese were rampaging through those waters, destroying Allied Bases and defeating the elderly, outgunned and undermanned U.S. fleet. Our heroes take refuge from almost certain death in a mysterious, powerful storm at sea, and when they have ridden out t [...]


    27. I enjoyed this quite a lot, well enough to go out today and buy the next two in the series because I was going to finish the first. The first book was a bit slow getting started, but then picked up well and I found myself enjoying it very much.The series seems clearly influenced by a series published in the 1990s by William R. Forstchen called the Lost Regiment series. In the Forstchen series, while at sea, a troop of Union soldiers from the Civil War is swept through a "time-space" warp to an a [...]


    28. This was fun. Really. It was!The concept is simple: a US Navy WWWI-era so-called "four stacker" warship is, during a firefight in the early days of WWII with japanese battleship Amagi, transported by unknown means to an alternate, if eerily similar, universe. The Earth they end up in has subtle, and a few not so suble, differences to our own, yet conflict and strife means the now-lost Destroyermen must chose side in a war unlike any they've ever experienced.There are TWO major problems with the [...]


    29. I listened to the audio version of this book, and at first it seemed like it was going be a World War II novel. Not knowing what the novel was about, it took me by surprise when it turned out to be an alternative history novel as a US destroyer under heavy attack by the Japanese navy got sucked into a maelstrom. They then set sail to Bali and find an island inhabited by lizard like dinosaurs. They also run into Lemurians, who are mammalian in nature and more peaceful. The Americans must decide w [...]
