4.0 out of 5 stars fourstack/4, 21 April 2011

Much better than no 3. More action and this time the author really moves the plot forward. The mapwork has improved but in that department there is allways room for improvment ! The only thing that bothers me a bit is the names. Maybe a list of names of humans, cats,griks. Maybe the list should be split up after the diffrent subgroups. What do I know, it'would have helped me :).
In all a good book , maybe the best i series so far. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continues the high standards I now expect from the author, 9 Dec 2011

This is an excellent book, and sits comfortably alongside all previous books in the series. I am thoroughly impressed that the author is maintaining the high standards that he has set himself.

Pleasingly, this book follows a very different structure to those before it. There are 5 key story threads each of which follows a different group of destroyer men and cats as they try to complete the arduous task that they have been set. This approach allows several minor characters from earlier books to get a lot more attention, and not all are successful in their endeavours. The Grik pleasingly get only a small amount of attention in this book, other enemies are given some proper attention instead.

I think my only complaint is one I mentioned in the last book. The speed that technology is progressing is far too fast. I am particularly concerned at the ease in which massive engines for steam ships are constructed and installed. The storyline involving aircraft is also just too much and thus becomes unbelievable.

That said, it is an excellent read, the author is managing the overall plot development very well. There is plenty of scope for another half dozen books in the series over the next few years.

Once again Anderson Taylor produces a superb read! I have seen some critics claim that the book feels like he's laying out the plot for the next stage - not so! In "Distant Thunders" Taylor introduced some new elements that were fundamental to the overall arc in this alternate Earth that he has created. In this book he starts to tie these elements together in what is, of necessity, a number of episodes taking place parallel to each other. In so doing he produces a tale of real adventure. His "meerkat" heroes and reptilian villains no longer appear strange, even slightly comical... and new evils have been introduced that are just as nightmarish as the Grik once appeared to be!

The next instalment in the Destroyer men series

It's all there - battles, characters and monsters - thought Distant Thunders was a tad slow but luckily this has picked up the pace.

Highly recommended
