Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lieutenant Commanders Matthew Reddy of USS Walker has found an unlikely ally in Commodore Jenks of the New Britain Imperial Navy. Now they are searching for a traitor who abducted nurse Sandra Ticker and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. It is soon obvious that the New Britain Company is attempting to overthrow the throne. And Reddy must navigate through a tempest of politics, deception, and betrayal if he is ever going to save the hostages and live to fight another day...

Review:

"The intrigue-heavy fifth installment in the saga of a temporally displaced WWII destroyer and crew moves from southeast Asian jungles to Hawai'i dueling grounds. Capt. Matt Reddy is faced with the dual tasks of breaking the treacherous Honorable New Britain Company and securing an alliance with the slave-keeping Empire. Doing so, however, incurs the enmity of the Holy Dominion, displaced colonial Spaniards who practice a blood-drenched sort of Catholicism. While Matt struggles with moral ambiguities, the younger officers gain more responsibilities and face the fatal consequences of mistakes in command, and Lt. Sandra Tucker leads imperial heir Princess Rebecca and a boatload of Company escapees across a dinosaur-crammed Pacific island. Anderson continues to broaden the scope of the story, but never lets the philosophy drown out the action, tossing in a full-scale naval battle and a volcanic tsunami for the twin climaxes. (Feb.)"
