Publisher's Summary

Matt Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker are positioned to push the line of battle to the breaking point on an alternate Earth, in the thrilling return to the New York Times best-selling Destroyermen series.

Matt Reddy and his sailors have fought, bled, and died for their Lemurian friends and other allies from across time, but their enemies are still operational. In Africa, the Grik General Esshk has escaped defeat to build a new army and new weapons, and is desperate enough to use them to destroy the world if he can't have it.

In South America, the NUS, General Shinya, and the Army of the Sisters have the evil Dominion on the ropes and are closing in on the seat of its blood-drenched power, but the twisted Don Hernan has struck a deal with the fascist League, and Victor Gravois is finally assembling the awesome fleet of modern ships he's always craved. If he's successful, the war will be lost.

Undermined by treachery on a stunning scale, Matt Reddy must still steam his battered old ship halfway around the world, scraping up what forces he can along the way, and confront the mightiest armada the world has ever seen in a fiery duel to the death.

Good finish

Was a great story and a great end. Sad for it not to me finish with William Dufris and his style will be missed. But Ochlan does his best to keep the voice as close to what we remember.

I miss Mr Dufris.

I loved the story, but the new narrator grates on my ears. Everything is read with the same forceful declaratory manner. I'm not a speech export, but I don't know if I can make it to the end. After three hours all I know is his voice irritates me to no end.

What a outstanding voyage!

Although saddened by the passing of William Dufris, and missed his descriptive characters voices, P.J. Ochlan did a fair job trying to recreate the originals.
And as Mr. Anderson informed us that this is the end of the series, and a heartfelt one to boot, I felt saddened it come to an end.
The story itself was nothing short of amazing, I was held captive throughout this offering.
I have read the entire series, save this book, two times through.
As this is one of the final book, I’ve decided to reread the complete series in order from the first book, to this one.
I’ve gotten more enjoyment from the “Destroyermen’s” books than any other book series to date.
If you enjoy an great fantasy tale, extremely well written, and preformed exquisitely, then do your self a favor, read this series, it’s absolutely worth the time.
As a foot note; I want to extend my most sincere condolences to the friends and family of Mr. William “Bill” Dufris, Rest In Peace.

Seems rushed

The etory seems rushed, wrapping up everything in a less than satisying way. All those deaths in the Popes chambers jsut seemed awkward.

Tha Narration did not even attempt to fit the rest of the series and it threw me. I understand why literally, but the spirit and the feel of the series was lost on me. I would have rather an actor who did some prep and a little closer emulation would have been better. This says nothing about the narrator, I have read him many times and he is great , but he was miscast. I suggest you rerecord, just like you you did the non Marsden Dresden book. I strongly suggest that.

I feel a little GOT about this.

Brace yourself for minor irritations.

I was very sad to hear that William Dufris had passed away. The dedication to him read by the new narrator was very touching. I was overall pleased with the narration and was prepared for there to be changes. I just wish the new narrator had done his homework. He changed the pronunciation of Earl Lanier’s name. He gave Shinya an R for L accent which Shinya never had.

This could have been avoided with a little listening to how Dufris portrayed these characters.

It was swell!!

This 15th volume is the final volume in what was a great story. Taylor Anderson is an outstanding author and should not limit himself to science fiction type novels. It is obvious that he created a world that shows honor, courage, and love as traits not limited to a single race or even species. Volumes 1-15 never degraded in quality nor did they have unnecessary plot lines just to keep a line of books going for profit. The details and minutiae of the alternative universe were all necessary to form images in the reader’s mind. Volumes 1-14 were read by the late great William Dufris. The final volume was read by PJ Ochlan who did a fantastic job providing continuity with William Dufris’ previous outstanding work. This final volume wrapped the story up satisfactorily. Perhaps there will be other stories in the future. This story covered about 4 years or so in the novel, but the author could only write one volume per year. So it was time for it to wrap up. Too bad five stars is all Audible will allow! This is simply the greatest series of books on a single story that I have ever read. The story should appeal to anyone as the themes transcend the alternative military setting.

A good finish to my favorite Sci-Fi series of all time.

I first picked up this series at a local library about five or six years ago. It quickly lit my imagination up. The characters are believable and always have been. Especially for ww2 era Americans. I appreciated Mr. Anderson’s way of addressing race / species relations too. In all 15 books you will find not one jot of sjw garbage. This is strictly SciFi/Fantasy goodness. I was sad to see some beloved characters die in the last major battles but war does that. It felt more believable that way vs. killing off a red shirt or two and calling it good. I really can not praise this series enough. The only series that belong on the same shelf are series like Dune and The Posleen War. If you enjoyed either of those, you’ll dig Destroyermen. Via con Dios.

Great ending to a Great Series

I won’t leave and hints to how it ends but there was some twists I didn’t see coming. I did get sad and didn’t see some of the characters deaths coming but where and when and how they passed went very well with the story. It only took the the first few chapters before I realized I liked the narrator PJ Ochlan characters. He had had some big shoes to fill in replacing William Dufris after he had passed.

A climactic success

I’ve listened to this series while driving to work for what seems like years. The character are old friends I catch up with each morning. This book did my friends proud. I may have cried a little, but there’s no evidence and I’d deny it, and definitely cheered. With this end my commute will be a little lonelier without the crew of Walker to keep me company.


Unless I start again, we’ll it’s rude not too.

A satisfying end if a little rushed.

The last in the series of 12 ripping yarn books filled with colourful characters that you grow to love.
The pace does feel at little rushed compared to the previous books and spliting the story over 1 or 2 more books might have enabled a more measured pace.
