I doubt that anyone thinking of picking up 'Firestorm' will not have already read all the previous books in the Destroyermen series (if you haven't read them then start with Into the Storm (Destroyermen)
and work through them in order from there). That being the case all I really need to say is that this latest volume easily maintains the standard of the preceding books.
I will add that Anderson continues to improve as a writer. The prose and structure are better here than in the earlier installments. This makes the reading experience all the more pleasurable.
My only real complaint is that 'Firestorm', rather like a couple of the other books, feels rather like it has been arbitrarily carved out of a far larger story. There is a vague attempt to create a proper finale of sorts, but for the most part the book just ends, with individual stories simply left hanging mid-story, waiting for the next installment. This give the whole book a feeling of incompleteness, and it left me feeling less than satisfied at the conclusion. I understand that this is one part of a continuing story, but some attempt to give each book a feeling of self-containment would be appreciated.
Apart from that, this has more than whetted my appetite for Iron Gray Sea (Destroyermen)
