Originally reviewed at Beauty in Ruins That made it easier for dsetroyermen captain to assess the situation. Dec 13, Kyle rated it liked it Shelves: In this strange new world the Walker encounters not one but two intelligent species – the peaceful, mammalian Lemurians and the viscious, raptor-like Grik.
Jan 14, Donna rated it really liked it Shelves: Apart from this entire new world Taylor Anderson made the reader comfortable with, he didn’t invest a lot of writing time into characterising his protagonists. I do not like how the role of the Japanese POW on parole seemed to shrink.
Sharks are like mackerals because giant sea creatures rule the waves. Geographically things seem the same, pulling up to Bali however, reveals pygmy brontosauruses instead of half naked village girls.
And that which does make me go. I really liked the Forstchen series a lot so the similarties don’t bother me. The characters are rich and wonderful, the world destroyernen as meticulous as it is creative and the wicked villains cold blooded We don’t experience these things separately we experience them all at the same time in the same way we remember events in storrm lives.
It’s how the characters fit together and react and if I get mad when I should or feel heartbroken when I should. If this had been just an adventure, with no weird monkey-people, then this might have been a better book.

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 ghe on the planet.
Trust me on this one. Matthew Reddy is forced to command a new ship, as the Walker is too badly damaged. You can help by adding to it. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, desttroyermen it will give them coverand emerges somewhere else.
Into the Storm
In my case, it would prevent me of enjoying this naval adventure and from meeting this amazing cast of chareacters. The Americans, with their superior technology, can tip the balance of the war in favor of the lemurs, but should they? I do not need to say something more. Since I started reading this series which is now 7 books long, I’ve completed 5 and I’m half way done with the 6 th.
Then, because this is a sci-fi book, the whole ship gets whisked away to another dimension where humans never evolved. We only get to know things from the crew’s perspective, so the thee baddies are still alien to us at the end of the first book.
Penguin Random House published River of Bonesthe thirteenth book in the series, in July to generally favorable reviews. 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’ through a squall after a naval battle with a Japanese destroyer.
Of course, I also think that most of them are just not memorable enough to stick around in my memory long enough.
